Quantum Success: 7 Essential Laws for a Thriving, Joyful, and Prosperous Relationship with Work and Money by Christy Whitman ISBN: 978-1-9821-0247-0 ASIN: B07CL5RBG6

By now, we have read countless books about, or related to, the Law of Attraction (LOA). Quantum Success: 7 Essential Laws for a Thriving, Joyful, and Prosperous Relationship with Work and Money by Christy Whitman is how a New York Times best selling author (multiple times) addresses the Law of Attraction.

One question people may have about the Law of Attraction is why is a pair of Christian bloggers talking about such things as The Law of Attraction.

The Law of Attraction is primarily about mindset and believing the desired outcome is taking place, and then seeing the desired outcome happen.

The New International Version of the Holy Bible reads as follows:

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Mark 11:24


There are countless other examples in the Bible where we are told that believing will make it so. To the best of my understanding, The Law of Attraction is not contrary to Biblical teachings (David).


We give Quantum Success all five stars. We think it is a readable book with many examples from previous authors and think you will enjoy it.


We were sent a complimentary advanced reading copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack) and Charger for Canon BP-718 ASIN: B00824F4VG




We here at Manian Debil Productions demand a lot from our camera batteries.  When I dropped one of the cameras and broke its battery, we were concerned that we would be hamstrung for a while. This just happened to be our overhead (A) camera.

The people over at Blue Nook were able to get us back up to speed in no time. The service was fast, the Wasabi Power Battery Pack works well, and we are back to what we do best, making video reviews.

It is a wonderful product. We really cannot tell the difference between the Wasabi batteries and the OEM battery.

Competing With Giants: How One Family-Owned Company Took on the Multinationals and Won by Phương Uyên Trần and Jackie Horne ISBN: 978-1-94663-315-6





It is unusual to find a book like Competing With Giants: How One Family-Owned Company Took on the Multinationals and Won by Phương Uyên Trần and Jackie Horne.  It works well as a casual reading experience about business. It also works well as a source of historical information.

In this book readers learn a little about the history of Vietnam and the surrounding areas.  Readers learn about the perceptions the Vietnamese people have of the United States of America and the rest of the world.

By now, you may be thinking that this book only works as a business book and a history book.  It also shows readers an insight into how families can, and perhaps should, relate to one another.

This book works as a book to inspire small business owners as they seek to compete with larger companies.  This book works also as a biography of the founder and founding family of one of the largest companies in Vietnam as well as a biography of the author.

If you are in business and want to compete on a global level, you should read this book It should help you understand a little better about how to think like the culture you are trying to market to.




We give Competing With Giants all five stars.  We think it is written well and provides a wealth of information from the perspective of someone other than a Western business person.  It would make a great textbook.




We were sent a complimentary PDF copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

The Journey to WOW: The Path to Outstanding Customer Experience and Loyalty by Shaun Belding ISBN: 978-1-63393-693-5



Available September 24, 2018


By now, most of our blog followers know we read a lot of business related books. Out of the many, many books on customer service, I (David) would have to say that The Journey to WOW: The Path to Outstanding Customer Experience and Loyalty by Shaun Belding is by far the best.

One of the strongest points Belding makes is that outstanding customer service is a moving target.  Back in the 1960s, a store would be considered to be outstanding if they had convenient parking and a clean restroom.  Those things are now expectations and not an example of outstanding customer service.

Belding takes his readers on a delightful journey (imagine an old redneck using terms like “Delightful”) with a young man who is tasked with improving his company’s customer experience.

This book reads a little like Who Moved My Cheese.  By this we mean that there is a story that, at first glance, is just a cute little story but, after a while, the reader learns that they actually learned something.


We give The Journey to WOW: The Path to Outstanding Customer Experience and Loyalty all five stars.  We wish some online booksellers would read the part where the team discusses how their customers contact them.



We were sent a complimentary advance review copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Ninja Foodi: The Pressure Cooker that Crisps: Complete Cookbook for Beginners: Your Expert Guide to Pressure Cook, Air Fry, Dehydrate, and More by Kenzie Swanhart ISBN: 978-1-64152-274-8

Available September 25, 2018





We do not have a Ninja Foodi at McClendon Villa.  When we were sent a review copy of Ninja Foodi: The Pressure Cooker that Crisps: Complete Cookbook for Beginners: Your Expert Guide to Pressure Cook, Air Fry, Dehydrate, and More by Kenzie Swanhart, we had to evaluate it based on the question, “Are these instructions easy enough for David, who has very limited skills in the kitchen, to follow?”

The answer to that question is a resounding, yes. These recipes are clear and easy to follow.  They have enough detail to tell first-time users of the Ninja Foodi how to use it and what attachments to use to make each dish.

These easy to understand recipes list all the ingredients needed, prep time, different cook times and temperatures, detailed instructions along with serving information regarding serving size, calories, etc.

If we had a Ninja Foodi, we would take it into the kitchen of McClendon Villa and demonstrate. Perhaps we will get one soon.

Trump Aftershock: The President's Seismic Impact on Culture and Faith in America by Stephen E. Strang ISBN: 978-1629995557

Available November 6, 2018





Whether you voted for Donald Trump or you didn’t, you have to admire the accomplishments he has made in his short time in office.  That is what Trump Aftershock: The President's Seismic Impact on Culture and Faith in America by Stephen E. Strang is all about.

Strang has definitely done his research. He cites multiple surveys and studies in his new book.  The information given is amazingly detailed.

All this detail does not mean the book is boring or that you will zone out when you read it.  It is an interesting book that makes one think, “I did not know that.”

Strang had several interviews with top Christian leaders like Franklin Graham and Dr. James Dobson to try to shed some light on this phenomenon that is sweeping the nation.  That phenomenon is how a US President could make more progress in his first 500 days in office than any other president in the history of the USA and very little of it making it into the mainstream media.   That which does make it is spun in such a way as to make it look trivial or bad.

As a way of disclosure, we have to say that we did not vote for Donald Trump.  We cast our vote for Castle. I, David, actually believed that Trump was meant to do for Hillary what Ross Perot did for Bill.

This same author wrote God and Donald Trump.  We have not read that one, yet. Trump Aftershock  is very well-written, well-researched, and detailed.  It is extremely eye-opening and would make a great read no matter whether you lean blue or you lean red.

The Siren Chronicles - Book 1 By Douglas J. Sloan ISBN: 9780999135709

Imagine being ordered away as you see someone devouring your parents. Or, walking along the beach and finding someone practically on death’s door, covered in seaweed. Or, waking up in a frat house with people staring at and pawing on you. Or, crying in a cave.

Imagine a whole lot more than that! The Siren Chronicles by Douglas J. Sloan offers a great deal of excitement as three mermaids embark on their earth quest. Each one faces challenges as they learn to maneuver themselves on land and deal with humans.

One of them gets the answer to something that has haunted her since childhood.

All three get a taste of evil that will take every ounce of their strength to defeat. Can they do it? They have to. Their underwater world depends on it.

I enjoyed The Siren Chronicles immensely. I couldn’t put it down and can’t wait to read Book 2!
