  • Kirkus Review of "The Ultimate Human Secrets" by Award-winning Bestselling Author Ramzi Najjar

    A guide for readers to build better versions of themselves.

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, December 2, 2021 / -- BOOK REVIEW

    A guide for readers to build better versions of themselves.

    The Ultimate Human Secrets: The Hidden Power in our Mysterious Unconscious Knowledge, Ramzi Najjar, 2021

    Entrepreneur Najjar opens his book on a note of millennial uncertainty. Humans, he contends, seek power by nature, including the power of knowledge, but in the present era, “our circumstances increasingly seem to have more deterring effects on us than we have on them.” The key to combating this, according to Najjar, is to work on achieving a state of inner being that prioritizes substance instead of mere appearance: “It’s more than just what looks healthy and shiny on the outside,” he writes. The author asserts that the human brain and body will always tell a person what’s right and wrong but that many people spend their lives ignoring that inner voice instead of training themselves to listen to it and take heed. In forceful, passionate prose, Najjar walks his readers through several aspects of this inner awakening, including the importance of sleep, which he describes as “recharging” the body with electricity, which binds to “memory particles” that flow throughout the body during this recharging. The goal that Najjar ultimately sketches out is one of achieving personal mastery over the unconscious “twisting and deforming” of reality by taking “a more conscious approach to living.”

    This basically sound advice, however, is offset throughout the book by a great deal of vague phrasing and questionable assertions; there are no such things as “memory particles,” for instance, and there’s no solid evidence that humans naturally possess infallible moral compasses. As a result, when the book repeats typical, long-standing self-help claims about how it doesn’t matter what life throws at a person but only how that person responds, readers may find themselves somewhat skeptical.

  • Seven Sisters and a Brother Details Black Student Activism that Transformed Swarthmore College in the Turbulent 1960s

    Students Marilyn Allman Maye and Aundrea White Kelley.

    Students negotiate with top administration officials.

    Nighttime view of the protest.

    The book tells the remarkable story of their inspirational 1969 protest and the racial barriers they overcame to spur change and build exceptional careers

    Activism of these courageous alumni paved the way for future generations of Swarthmore students. At great risk to themselves, they fought for justice at the College and forever changed our trajectory.”
    — Swarthmore President Valerie Smith

    NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, December 2, 2021 / -- More than 50 years ago, African American students changed the course of history at predominantly white Swarthmore College by courageously staging an eight-day takeover of the Admissions Office. Their book, Seven Sisters and A Brother: Friendship, Resistance and Untold Truths Behind Black Student Activism in the 1960s, portrays their strides to overcome family, economic and academic challenges, while documenting their struggle for equality and respect in a hostile environment. Their amazing account was released in paperback today.

    Located outside Philadelphia, PA, Swarthmore College has cited the demonstration as the most consequential action in its 157-year history.

    The book details stunning privacy breaches by Swarthmore that would spark outrage today, but was of little concern in 1969 when Black students and their families were the victims: Swarthmore completed a report on Black admissions containing personal information such as SAT scores, Swarthmore grades, family incomes and occupations. The report was openly available to fellow students, professors and the public at the school’s McCabe Library.

    “We thought that was a breach of trust. That motivated us to just say, ‘Enough is enough, something has to change,’” says Marilyn Holifield, one of the book’s authors, who is a partner at the mega law firm, Holland & Knight LLP, and a member of Swarthmore’s Board of Managers.

    Another student, Joyce Baynes recalled that the Black students gathered in their dorm rooms to discuss the racism they faced at the private liberal arts college, and to plot their response. “We would talk about how we were feeling and some of the things that were going on in our classes. We got agitated by the unfairness,” says Baynes, who helped plan the protest but didn’t participate because she had graduated the previous semester.

    On January 9, 1969, the students sprang into action. Holifield, Marilyn Allman Maye, Harold S. Buchanan, Jannette O. Domingo and Aundrea White Kelley took over the Admissions Office, stopping all school activities. Soon students, Bridget Van Gronigen Warren and Myra E. Rose joined them, along with other Black students. Among their demands were that the college recruit more Black students and start a Black Studies Department.

    With America still reverberating from the massive demonstrations after the police killing of George Floyd and other racial injustices, this narrative by the Black Swarthmore students underscores the lasting impact that activism can have, even if it isn’t immediately apparent. The next year, Black enrollment increased and a Black Admissions Dean was hired. And, today Swarthmore is led by President Valerie Smith, a Black, female scholar of African American literature. Last year, at an event celebrating the book, Smith said, “The activism of these courageous alumni paved the way for future generations of Swarthmore students. At great risk to themselves, they fought for justice at the College and forever changed our trajectory.”

    Moreover, the students also excelled in their professional careers, and include a medical doctor, a lawyer, a biologist, four educational leaders, and a computer scientist. The hardcover version of the book was awarded 2020 Sarton Women's Literary Award for Nonfiction with Special Recognition. The new 2021 paperback edition includes a foreword by award winning author and journalist Sophia Nelson as well as an Afterword that puts the students’ 1960s era protest in perspective with today’s racial justice movement.

    In the foreword, Nelson writes: “I cannot recommend this book enough. For years the media and some in the Swarthmore community portrayed the peaceful 1969 protest in a false light―these collective narratives provide a very necessary and overdue retelling of the revolution that took place at Swarthmore College in 1969. The group of eight student protestors only recently have begun to receive credit for the school’s greater inclusiveness, as well as the influence their actions had on universities around the country. As they should.”

    Alberto Ibargüen, President and CEO of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and former publisher of The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald, says, “Over eight days, eight students sparked change that defined their lives, changed an institution and fueled a movement that continues today.”

The SBAN Endowment will support student internships in collaboration with the Eugene Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility.

  • Award-winning Bestseller Author Ramzi Najjar speaks about the Nature of Our Reality

    52 Award-winner Ramzi Najjar — Author of “The YOU beyond you" and "The Ultimate Human Secrets".

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, December 2, 2021 / -- Award-winner Ramzi Najjar — Author of “The YOU beyond you" and "The Ultimate Human Secrets," discusses the nature behind our reality. "We always try to understand, our reality, through our senses, and try to analyze, what we see, around us by rationalizing it, in our minds." However, the spectrum of what can be sensed is too narrow given what reality is. The nature of all things in this universe has the same base constituent. Smart memory Particles are tinier than the tiniest thing that one can ever imagine or try to imagine. Combining and associating together, these particles, form everything, everywhere, and depending on the type of association, and numbers involved, the nature of all materials, is formed. From Nitrogen to hydrogen, to Sodium, to carbon, to any other element, the fundamental base is the same.

    The types of vibrations, and magnetism, these particles, generate when associating, to form a certain element, determine its nature. Our human brain can only read a small range, of this reality, as our senses are triggered by only, trench segments of it. We can only sense when these associations of particles reach, the atom level. This should make us reflect, on the real scale, and nature of our Universe. We all believe that atoms are tiny, and that, they are the building blocks, of all matter, but how really tiny, atoms are?

    To reach the atomic level, these minute memory particles associate into bigger formations to constitute the Planck. Plancks in turn associate into bigger formations, which in turn, associate into bigger formations and bigger formations, at seven levels to become the atom, which our brain is able to read.

    Each association requires trillions of particles to scale up, creating a whole world of associations inside a single atom, separated by what seems like a void. But the fact is, that this void is not so, as it is filled with free particles, in a looser form. Nothing in this reality is empty nor void. The atom that we cannot see, and which is believed to be the base of our lives, is to one of these memory particles, as a constellation is to a single human. Our brain can start consciously sensing and reading our reality at the atomic level, where things become analyzable by the electric systems within our bodies.

    However, on an unconscious level, the electricity that is in us, and which runs our bodies, ignites the exchange of these loose particles between us and our environment. An unconscious, emission, and attraction phenomenon, of free particles, from and to our bodies, is constantly occurring in our reality, swapping all sorts of information, between what’s in us and what’s outside.

    As humans are mostly blind to this exchange, we can hardly sense the world at this level, but most importantly, because we keep ourselves preoccupied with other matters, which are happening at a larger scale, and totally divert our attention from it. Atoms in our bodies are all the time in exchange for particles at this minute level, with a multitude of internal and external elements.

    When subjected to electricity, these free particles in our atoms, cease to hold to the atoms’ magnetism, thus, they can leave atoms, join other atoms or expand in the universe at will. Most of this happens unconsciously in us.

    However, once being conscious of these dynamics, one can succeed in directing these particles for specific targets, to attract and subtract specific needs from our reality. Our thoughts with the voltage of electricity they generate, can send these particles, through vibrations and magnetism across our world, and alter it, and can also attract through different frequencies and magnetic fields, different energies from our reality to alter us.

    Reflect on this, and try to get the bigger, but most importantly the smaller picture, and you will realize that all is interconnected, at all levels.

    If imagining this could happen in all atoms in us and all atoms around us, you can realize, how fluid our Universe and all the elements within, are.

    Ramzi Najjar, asks, "How many times did you think of a person and get shocked that they shortly call? Or how many times did you have a gut feeling and realized that what you felt was going to happen, did really happen? If one permits the necessary silence and focus in his life, he would discover that he can sense the nonsensical and that he can read a multitude of signals, from all that is around him, and interact more consciously, with his reality. We got so familiar with our environment, that most of us, are blinded to our reality and most of our surroundings."

    Whilst we created chaotic lives by gathering just everything, that comes in our way, and whilst we unconsciously chose, to be blind in our minds to the reality around us and unconsciously, also chose, to hinder the real abilities of our brains, to read most of the memory from what is around us, and benefit from this constant memory exchange, we keep complaining of our depressive states of minds, and get irritated by the fact that nothing is going in the right direction we want.

    Ramzi Najjar states, "The bad news is that things will never change, unless, at some point, we choose, to seek what we merit and decide to commit to it, and we start to gather, the right memory, from what is around us, and organize, our memory, to become what we seek to become."

    You are not alone. Raising Black gentlemen isn't easy, but the rewards are great. Your love for your son is your biggest strength. Let it guide you, and you will find your way!”
    — Sanya Simmons
    NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2021 / -- Bradbury Press is thrilled to announce the publication of the keenly anticipated book by debut author, mother and voice artist, Sanya Simmons - A Single Mom's Guide to Raising Black Gentlemen – to be released on 21st December 2021.

    A single mom to two wonderful boys, Sanya started writing this book back in the spring of 2014. When asked about the motivation behind writing this book, she said, “My first objective was and remains for my book to be a resource for moms, full of practical tips and examples. Beyond that, I want to achieve financial and critical success and leave a legacy for my sons.”

    Almost seven years after she first started working on her book, Sanya started reaching out to publishers. After a brief yet exhausting process, and with the help of her publicist Nathan, she secured a publishing deal with Bradbury Press. The book will be published next month in four different versions – eBook, paperback, hardcover and audiobook.

I want to be a partner with Bradbury Press. I believe that together, we can make this book a phenomenal success for all who are involved.

I want Steve Harvey to offer it to every mother of the boys who go through his mentorship program. I would also like to have the support of 100 Black Men and 100 Black Women. I want to change the definition of what it means to be a successful parent from being defined by our children's success – academic and professional both – to being defined by our relationships with our children. I want to start conversations about what we can do to raise confident, well-adjusted young black men in a society that too often has not served them well. I know these are lofty goals, but I believe they are all attainable!”

    Sanya’s debut book will be on sale on the 21st of December – the book will be released in four different versions – ebook, paperback, hardcover and audiobook.

  • “The Adventures of Doc Holliday Hennings” Children’s Book Seeks to Help Children Cope With Loss and Value Family

    Doc Holliday

    The book-themed Doc Plush toy has just been launched as a tangible and supportive bonding doll for kids

    QUEENS, NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, November 27, 2021 / -- Teaching children the importance of family and helping them to cope with loss when a loved one passes away is a challenging task made easier by the juvenile fiction book "The Adventures of Doc Holliday Hennings". There is now a limited edition for the holiday season released on Amazon, at

    “As a parent and storyteller, I always tried to teach my daughter the value of family while also making her understand that real-life families are often more complex and layered than popular culture would have kids believing,” said TK Bethea, the book’s author. Also inspired by memories of Doc Holliday, his childhood dog, Bethea created a tale that addresses issues such as blended families, stepparents, half-siblings, mixed cultural upbringings, and bullying.

    In this novel, six-year-old Jeffrey Hennings is sad because his mother died not very long ago. Now it’s just him and his dad, Richard, and it has been difficult for them. One day, after Jeffrey has a fight with another boy at school, he and his dad are walking home when they encounter a small brown-and-black puppy. A cowboy is selling the dog, and Jeffrey and his dad adopt him and call him Doc Holliday. One day, after overhearing a conversation that makes him think Jeffrey and his dad don’t actually love him, Doc decides to run away and find his birth family. Out on the streets, he encounters a world of trouble, as Jeffrey and his dad make their best efforts to find Doc and let him know that he really is part of their family.

    The author of the book has now also launched an accompanying bonding plush toy, Doc Plush, which is available on Etsy, at The toy embodies the energy of the character and helps define the various meanings of family, friendships, connections, and perseverance. “This so much more than a plush toy,” Mr. Tekea said. “This is actually a toy that is aimed at helping children cope with loss, find the strength to deal with bullying, and feel more supported as they experience the frequently conflicting emotions of growing in a non-conventional family,” the author commented.

    With a fast-approaching holiday season, TK Bethea intends to offer parents a meaningful Christmas gift that children will enjoy: an engaging children’s story that will resonate with many, and a welcoming plush toy that they can bond with and turn to, finding the comfort and empowerment of a best friend that symbolizes the best that friendship has to offer.

    “This Christmas, I wanted parents to have an available gift to offer to their children that isn’t just another toy or video game, and that is instead a book that stimulates reading and that is aided by a plush toy like no other, intended to help develop the emotional intelligence of children,” Bethea further noted.

    The book and toy that help children rediscover the meaning of true family, including blended families and adopted families, as well as those forged by the bonding of friendship, can now be purchased on Amazon or Etsy.

    TK Bethea can be reached at or on 646-591-5054. The project’s website can be visited at

    A geneticist’s regeneration of Ice Age animals & humans is stolen... becomes the basis for genetic warfare weapons –and the prophesied Resurrection of the Dead!

    REAL genetics potential & ONE prophecy in common among most religions: a regeneration of humanity & nature post-catastrophe. But what nightmare is released? Great for gifts and news for media!”
    — Laura Haas, Publisher
    NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 24, 2021 / -- Cloning sheep and chimps was only a beginning.

    Using Fossil Gene Redemption (FGR), geneticist Kevin G. Harrigan experiments with genes from a frozen "Ice Man". His work prompts Iraqi leader, Ishmail Mon, to provide resources for exciting new research that enables Harrigan's team to regenerate extinct “cryptids” and human sub-species from the Ice Ages. But FGR can be the basis for genetic weapons of mass destruction; United States intelligence and defense leaders must act!

    Radically distinct from Jurassic Park, Ancient of Genes shows new megafauna regeneration methods by which the only prophecy held in common among major religions & myth traditions could manifest: Some form of regeneration of human ancestors and megafauna. Once considered junk DNA, personality genes and other traits archive in lineages. These genes await a virus vector that targets meiosis to re-express them in all subsequent generations. This can start a resurrection cascade enabling Mon to ruin enemy genomes, improve his allies’ genes… and inherit the earth.

    Harrigan's frightening choice can lead to redemption… or the terrifying sunset of humanity!

    Ancient of Genes is book 1 in the Ancient Beacon series. Reviews so far followed by prior version reviews:
