Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was
overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting,
though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story
as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip
to heaven and back.
Colton, not yet four years old, told his
parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim
by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of
the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting
heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom
he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he
was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure
details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not
yet learned to read.
With disarming innocence and the plainspoken
boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family
members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God
is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s
uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”
Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.

Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts.
Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today’s business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies.
unspoken corollary to the 80/20 principle is that little of what we
spend our time on actually counts. But by concentrating on those things
that do, we can unlock the enormous potential of the magic 20 percent,
and transform our effectiveness in our jobs, our careers, our
businesses, and our lives.

All those modern-day assumptions are, in a word, wrong.

In the second edition of this
witty and infectious book, Madsen Pirie builds upon his guide to using –
and indeed abusing – logic in order to win arguments. By including new
chapters on how to win arguments in writing, in the pub, with a friend,
on Facebook and in 140 characters (on Twitter), Pirie provides the
complete guide to triumphing in altercations ranging from the everyday
to the downright serious.
He identifies with devastating examples all the most common fallacies popularly used in argument. We all like to think of ourselves as clear-headed and logical – but all readers will find in this book fallacies of which they themselves are guilty.
The author shows you how to simultaneously strengthen your own thinking and identify the weaknesses in other people arguments. And, more mischievously, Pirie also shows how to be deliberately illogical – and get away with it. This book will make you maddeningly smart: your family, friends and opponents will all wish that you had never read it.
