    A Bridge to Simplicity Through Diagrams

    When you explain something to someone are you inclined to draw a diagram? What about when you want to understand something; do you find that a diagram helps you learn? Whether you want to master a personal interest, such as understanding your cholesterol; better perform a school or work assignment; or simply a desire to get your point across more effectively, diagramming is a natural way to facilitate understanding and to subsequently convey that understanding to others. This book teaches you the tools and techniques you need for creating diagrams that will help you depict any subject at an appropriate level of detail for your intended audience. The techniques presented are based on the industry standard Unified Modeling Language (UML). UML is used by the world’s most sophisticated organizations to build the world’s most complex information systems. Its success lies in its innate ability to break down the most complicated subjects into their simple components. This book shows you how to harness the power of UML in your everyday life and decision-making processes.

    Family Self Defense School: Student Manual

    This book is the product of over forty years of study on the part of the author. It was written with the hope that people will be able to defend themselves and others. Written in it are grappling and striking techniques with the premise of teaching a small man to fight well, and a big man to fight with finesse and less on his brute strength. He believes that if a person knows how to finish a fight then they can choose not to maim or kill, whereas someone who does not know how cannot choose.

  • Franny Hill - Listen to Your Eyes

    Listen To Your Eyes

    “Listen to Your Eyes” is a book that explores the critical nature of achieving literacy. I was amazed to uncover some of the information in this book. It made everything make sense in my life at the moment I put the pen to paper. My education served me well with this work,
    and it left me feeling like my best days are in front of me. Someday, I will commence with my master’s degree with all the confidence I need to thrive in a career as a mental health professional. I was focused on using general, easy-to-understand terminology that would appeal to anyone seeking to improve their thinking capacity. Listen to Your Eyes will make reading enjoyable with its sense of commonality and relativity to your own ideas about that old phrase “Pick up a book.” Have a seat and let your mind be in charge.

    About the author:
    I grew up in Union, New Jersey, where I attended public schools, resulting in graduation from Union High School in 1983. I have lived with a diagnosis of schizophrenia for a portion of my life after graduation. I have achieved an associate degree in psychosocial rehabilitation with honors in 2014 from UCC and Rutgers. I lead a very recovery-oriented lifestyle that is full of spontaneity and discovery. I am an uncle of three nieces and a grandnephew that are the joy of my life. My life has improved since I have returned to school. My illness almost robbed me of my dreams. “Listen to Your Eyes” is my second book that speaks to all dreamers and achievers. Let nothing stand against you for your destiny.
