Imagine a doctor doing ordinary activities in his kitchen, stopping to draw some of the everyday objects around him, like an orange and a corkscrew. Then watch him turn those drawings into advanced patents for hip and knee replacements. Dr. Michael Ries holds 45 patents, and many of his ideas came to him in the kitchen. The remarkable efficiency of the human hip and knee are described here through simple illustrations, explaining why hip and knee replacements will never be quite as perfect as the joints we were born with. Health care professionals, patients considering joint replacement, students, and inventors will find The Joint Kitchen informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking. Dr. Ries shows that a state of tranquility allows the creative and problem-solving parts of the brain to connect and form new ideas that can transform and improve lives.

Praise for The Joint Kitchen:
“A necessary read for anyone who . . . hopes to become the next Leonardo da Vinci!” —Michael E. Davies, Renowned Emergency Room and Trauma Physician

“An extraordinarily helpful book about creative thinking, describing exactly what happens with me every day when I am writing.” —Alan Trustman, Author of Bullitt, The Thomas Crown Affair, Recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Cannes Film Festival.

“This book is a must read for anyone who may hope to improve creative thinking, and to innovate and problem solve using out of the box thinking.” —Sigurd Berven, MD, Professor and Chief of Spine Service, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, UC San Francisco

“The Joint Kitchen by Michael Ries is a book like none other on the creative process that blends knowledge and unfocused thought leading to “outside the box” medical inventions. Dr. Ries goes beyond explaining his thought process of discovery to a description of the “silent zone,” that ushers in the alchemy of the ‘Eureka’ moment. Invention after invention pour out of his ability to see shapes in common objects, their natural utility and his brain’s own sense of itself. His opening up to his ‘silent zone’ is an exact description of our brain’s ability to drop into the recently discovered Default Mode Network, where many believe the deepest parts of our true sense of Self exists. This critical process is centrally involved in all creative endeavors.” —Michael H. Moskowitz, MD, MPH, Pain Management Specialist and Author of Medical Cannabis: A Guide for Patients, Practitioners, and Caregivers

“The Joint Kitchen presents similes of everyday events which provide solutions for complex orthopaedic problems.” — Seth Greenwald, D.Phil.(Oxon), Director, Orthopaedic Research Laboratories, Cleveland, OH

The Joint Kitchen Author Michael David RiesAbout the Author:
Dr. Michael Ries is a world renowned orthopaedic surgeon. He has presented over 600 invited lectures at regional, national, and international orthopaedic educational conferences, and published over 200 peer reviewed journal articles and 50 book chapters on topics related to total hip and knee replacement. Dr. Ries is also an inventor on 45 US patents for hip and knee replacement devices.

All enlightened beings, most founders of religions and many renowned scientists knew and understood the six principles of enlightenment. These universal truths have been written about, taught and discussed for thousands of years yet remain shrouded in mystery and misinterpretation. This book seeks to remove that shroud.

The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life is an intellectual and spiritual work that explains the six significant universal truths woven throughout science, religion and philosophy. These principles draw upon thousands of years of wisdom and are presented in a concise, accessible format. Each principle is defined and has an explanation on its application to life; they are further supported by quotes of wisdom from enlightened beings, philosophers, artists and scientists like Buddha, Albert Einstein, Rumi, Stephen Hawking and Jesus. Understanding the six principles then unlocks the meaning of life which is explained in the final chapter.

The Principle of Oneness Author Russell Anthony GibbsAbout the Author:
Award winning and bestselling author Russell Anthony Gibbs is a philosopher and spiritual seeker on a quest for enlightenment. His research into Baha’ism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sufism and Taoism greatly influences his spiritual and philosophical perspective. He is also profoundly influenced by the information from two channeled entities, Seth and Abraham. He further incorporates quantum mechanics, physics and psychology as well as concepts from the works of Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Stephen Hawking.

Gibbs’s communication style is concise, intense and deep. He would rather express wisdom in brief, powerful quotes and concise paragraphs than in complicated, long-winded explanations. Espresso Wisdom is short, strong, rich insight. Like espresso coffee, it gives an intense jolt of enlightenment. Enlightenment is an awakening, and Espresso Wisdom is meant to help jumpstart you on your journey.

Could it be that the essential missing asset class in the entire investment landscape is about to be enriched with a healthy allocation? That ingredient is nothing less than the human heart and the life changing power of faith and love.

Readers will be soaked with wisdom from the greatest of such masters as Jesus Christ, Buddha, Krishna, Lao Tzu, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Thomas Merton and Rumi.

“Man is a captive on earth. His body and his mind are his prison bars. And the soul is unconsciously craving to experience once again the freedom that originally belonged to it.”

–Rumi –The Masnavi

Presented with sincerity, honesty and heart, this is a touching true story replete with the deepest wisdom and most poignant truths. The fact that these golden threads are interwoven in the tapestry of a human life unfolding makes it all the more medicine for the soul. A delightful roadmap to navigate the road less traveled toward a future where perhaps the greatest riches await.

Self-Help – The Authentic Lover

The Authentic LoverThe Authentic Lover
Reclaiming Love’s Beauty and Power
By Chris Hakim
Publisher: Wise Love Books
Published: April 2017
ISBN: 978-0998155302
ASIN: B01MQIJOGT
Pages: 204
Genre: Self-Help

Why is there so much conflict around sexuality? How does a relationship that began with joy end up feeling like a chore? Why is attraction so seldom reciprocated? And what, if anything, does online dating have to do with love? In The Authentic Lover, you will discover the four great enemies of love: violence, pettiness, vanity, and our reproductive agenda.

If we can overcome these formidable enemies, nothing more keeps us from the vast experience of unconditional love. Starting from the raw data of evolutionary psychology and other modern research, this book takes us on a journey through traditional wisdom, Rumi’s poetry, samurai culture, and the dry humor that comes from firsthand experience. A picture emerges both of the pitfalls we all face as humans, and of the corresponding opportunities we always have at hand, but rarely tap into. The Authentic Lover shows a path for us to realize our birthright to love in a full and spontaneous way, free of unwanted ancestral, cultural, and emotional baggage.
