Who is CB Floyd?

Ayn Rand, in the very first sentence on the very first page of her bestselling novel Atlas Shrugged, asked this now immortal question, “Who is John Galt?” Almost 50 years later, it is my prediction that the world will soon be asking with similar fervor, “Who is CB Floyd?”

Well, who is CB Floyd? Poet, musician, composer, author, master repairman, cartoonist, part-time psychic and a master storyteller to boot...I met CB Floyd in high school when I was 15 and he quickly became my best friend. Dreams, Ghosts and Miracles is the first in a series which relates the autobiographical accounting of the amazing life of CB Floyd and I am sure you will find it both fascinatingly interesting and wonderfully inspiring. I’ve read it many, many times now and I love this book completely. His insight into his own problems (and subsequently, the problems of the world) - as told in an amiable and informal manner - is certain to bring you hours of enjoyment and real hope that someone might actually know something about what is going on here on planet Earth. Treat this like an adventure and you won’t be disappointed...and Bon Voyage!

One of the great fears many of us face is that despite all our effort and striving, we will discover at the end that we have wasted our life. In A Guide to the Good Life, William B. Irvine plumbs the wisdom of Stoic philosophy, one of the most popular and successful schools of thought in ancient Rome, and shows how its insight and advice are still remarkably applicable to modern lives. In A Guide to the Good Life, Irvine offers a refreshing presentation of Stoicism, showing how this ancient philosophy can still direct us toward a better life. Using the psychological insights and the practical techniques of the Stoics, Irvine offers a roadmap for anyone seeking to avoid the feelings of chronic dissatisfaction that plague so many of us. Irvine looks at various Stoic techniques for attaining tranquility and shows how to put these techniques to work in our own life. As he does so, he describes his own experiences practicing Stoicism and offers valuable first-hand advice for anyone wishing to live better by following in the footsteps of these ancient philosophers. Readers learn how to minimize worry, how to let go of the past and focus our efforts on the things we can control, and how to deal with insults, grief, old age, and the distracting temptations of fame and fortune. We learn from Marcus Aurelius the importance of prizing only things of true value, and from Epictetus we learn how to be more content with what we have. Finally, A Guide to the Good Life shows readers how to become thoughtful observers of their own lives. If we watch ourselves as we go about our daily business and later reflect on what we saw, we can better identify the sources of distress and eventually avoid that pain in our life. By doing this, the Stoics thought, we can hope to attain a truly joyful life.
