Book Review - Essential Readings and Study Guide: Poems about Social Justice, Women's Rights, and the Environment by KV Dominic

Book Review
Essential Readings and Study Guide: Poems about Social Justice, Women's Rights, and the Environment by KV Dominic

Book Information
K. V. Dominic Essential Readings gathers for the first time the three most important works of poetry from this shining new light of contemporary Indian verse in English: Winged ReasonWrite Son, Write and Multicultural Symphony. A fourth collection of 22 previously unpublished poems round out a complete look at the first 12 years of Dominic’s prolific and profound verse. Each poem includes unique Study Guide questions suitable for South Asian studies curricula.

Written in free verse, each of his poems makes the reader contemplate on intellectual, philosophical, spiritual, political, and social issues of the present world. Themes range from multiculturalism, environmental issues, social mafia, caste-ism, exploitation of women and children, poverty, and corruption to purely introspective matters. From the observation of neighborhood life to international events, and everyday forgotten tragedies of India, nothing escapes the grasp of Dominic’s keen sense of the fragility of life and morality in the modern world.

Praise for the verse of K. V. Dominic
"K. V. Dominic is one of the most vibrant Indian English poets whose intense passion for the burning social and national ailments makes him a disciple of Ezekielean School of poetry. His poetic passion for the natural beauty keeps him besides the Romanticists."
-- Dr. A. K. Choudhary, English poet, critic and editor, Professor of English, Assam, India

"K. V. Dominic’s poems are important additions to the growing global movement to bring about positive change and equality for all individuals. The injustices he confronts in his poems are the arrows and thorns that pierce his heart every day and the gushing blood that runs through his pen to paper."
-- Rob Harle, poet and critic, Nimbin, Australia

"K. V. Dominic is a poet of the suffering masses and oppressed sections of the society. He tries to dissect corruption at all levels, political or religious, social or academic and presents it in its true colours with all the ugliness and monstrous greed."
--Prof. T. V. Reddy, reputed English poet, writer and critic, Emeritus Professor of English from Andhra Pradesh, India

Our Book Review
The authors topics and themes he used for his poetry had me gripped from the first to the last page. The useful question's at the end of each one, checking for understanding, is an additional bonus.

As for any poet the subject matter is key, the author writes from his heart and is not afraid to challenge and test the reader with his beliefs. No situation or emotion is left uncovered, from birth to death and love to hate, politics and religion and the one thing that touches everyones heart our love for our pets. 


When you read each individual poem it will strike a chord and make you really challenge your own morals. The honesty and integrity of the writer shines through. 

Scholars will love the scripts as it will lead to endless discussions over their interpretation of the words and meanings.

Book Review - Don't: How Using the Right Words Will Change Your Life by Bob Selden

Book Review
Don't: How Using the Right Words Will Change Your Life
by Bob Selden

About the book
How using the right words will positively impact your life.

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have all the luck? Bob Selden's new book "Don't" shows you how words impact those parts of the brain that make you either positive or negative. People who have a more positive outlook use more positive language. They see opportunities that others miss – they also generally see how these opportunities can be turned into real advantages.

* "Don't" sets out those negative words and phrases to avoid – the ones that create negative thinking in your brain and result in negative behaviour – and then suggests some words and phrases that do just the opposite. The end result? You will start to use positive words, which activate the positive parts of your brain which then results in positive behaviour.

* "Don't" will also enable you to better manage those difficult conversations that all of us have at some point. Sometimes it's a conversation we initiate, such as going to a job interview, at other times it's initiated by someone else, such as when a good friend wants help with a deep problem.

Bob Selden will challenge some of your thinking on what makes some people more successful than others – Is it luck? Upbringing? Opportunity? Or is it perhaps the words we use? Read his new book "Don't" and make the call!

Our Book Review
The success of any book is while you are reading or discussing it with others, it gains their interest in the subject matter and they actually go out and buy it, which is what has happened with this particular book.

While I was reading the book and incorporating the ideas and concepts the author was promoting people around me noticed the change in my language and attitude that I had adopted and wondered where it had come from.  Particularly that I was using a lot of positivity and different lines of questioning to check for understanding and explanations. This was all down to reading this excellent novel which points out how we can improve communication by changing simple things.

For example when I returned home one night after a stressful day an argument was going to ensue between myself and my wife, using a technique from the book I started to question my wife "AND why do you feel like that?" This took her by surprise and made her laugh thus proving the technique works.

As I said the proof is in the pudding, in sales and interests, and I know of two people (in a management level) in my work place who have purchased this book after reading the first couple of chapters.

Useful exercises at the end of each chapter reinforce the instructions from the author and lessons we can do over and over again to not only improve ourselves but others as well.

Reading this book will make and hopefully change the way you communicate, act, and respond to anyone you come into contact with.

Author interviewed by a panel on a Sydney TV show called “Studio 10” 

About the author
I call myself a student of behaviour. I believe that the words and language we use not only impact our relationships with others, but also the way in which we behave. Recent research tends to support this belief. For example, studies at the Universities of Heidelberg, Neuchatel and Zurich (2007) show that when young male drivers hear male type words (such as "tough" and "rough") they automatically increase their speed, whilst hearing female type words (such as "pink" and "gentle") leads to a reduction in their speed. My question, "Can the words a manager uses also impact both his or her people relationships and behaviour?" 

As an author on management, I have not only studied the subject, but have lived the role. I survived my first new manager's role in banking to eventually develop into a senior manager responsible for the career development of hundreds of other managers. During this growing process, and later as an organisational development consultant, trainer and coach, I learnt what works and what doesn't work when managing others. So, I've recently published a new book "What To Do When You Become The Boss" which is a result of this learning. My determination is to help other new managers during their initial growth spurt.

I'm an Australian currently living in Sydney. As well as consulting to various organisations on five continents, I have coached on the Mobilizing People program at the International Institute for Management Development in Lausanne, Switzerland (whre I lived for seven years). 

I'm married with three children. I'm a keen cyclist and love getting out and about in the hills around home.

I'd like to challenge some of your thinking on leadership and management development and would appreciate your feedback - please contact me at www.nationallearning.com.au or www.whenyoubecometheboss.com

My book "What To Do When You Become The Boss" was a finalist in the INDIE Book Awards of 2008. Recently, Business Executive Magazine described it as "One of the best books on management that we have seen in a long time." It's now reached sales of over 55,000 and been published in four languages.

I've recently released my new book "Don't: How using the right words will change your life". It's a book about how our words impact our behaviour, and ultimately self-image and personality.

I look forward to your comments, reviews and questions.
