The debate over the true author of Shakespeare’s body of work (some of which was published under the name "Shake-speare") began not long after the death of William Shakespeare, the obscure actor and entrepreneur from Stratford-upon-Avon who was conventionally assumed to be the author. There were natural doubts that an uneducated son of a glover who never left England and apparently owned no books could have produced some of the greatest works of Western literature. Early investigators into the mystery argued for such eminent figures as Christopher Marlowe or Francis Bacon as possible authors, but recent scholarship has turned to Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, as the true Shakespeare.
"Shakespeare" by Another Name is the first complete literary biography of Edward de Vere that tells the story of his action-packed life—as student, soldier, courtier, lawyer, political intriguer, sophisticate, traveler, and, above all, writer—finding in it the background material for all of Shakespeare’s plays. Anderson brings to bear a wealth of new evidence, most notably de Vere’s personal copy of the Bible (recently analyzed to show the correlation between his underlinings and the biblical allusions in Shakespeare’s work) and has employed it all to at last give a complete portrait and background to the man who was "Shakespeare."

What would happen if teachers from around the globe collaborated on an eBook using Book Creator? What would happen if each teacher was given five tasks to complete in order to make that eBook? What would happen if they were only given one hour to do this?
In this book you will see what happens when teachers from around the globe use a one hour Twitter chat to write, compile and publish a book in one hour.
We hope you enjoy!

Mark Anderson Moby-Dick as Philosophy is at base a chapter-by-chapter commentary on Herman Melville’s masterwork, Moby-Dick. The commentary form of the book subserves a higher end, the presentation of an ideal of the type philosopher. Superimposing portraits of Plato, Melville, and Nietzsche—the thinkers themselves, their ideas and their lives—it generates a composite image from the overlaying and interblending of figures. At a higher level still, the book is a meditation on the nature of philosophy and its relation to wisdom, and the relation of creative artistry to both. It explores these themes in the context of the history of philosophy conceived as the rise and fall of a certain influential variety of Platonism—in Nietzschean terms, the life and death of God—and it proceeds with reference to the different reactions, as exemplified particularly by Melville and Nietzsche, to the nihilism that looms on the horizon of these intellectual and spiritual revolutions.
Mark Anderson Thinking Life is a narrative exploration of such themes as the decline of the contemporary university, man's alienation from nature, modern melancholia, Dionysian intoxication, the relative value of knowledge, truth, and artistry in the life of the philosopher, and the creative construction of self. The author engages throughout with Plato and Nietzsche, with the Phaedo and The Gay Science in particular.

Connie Romia & Mark Anderson The Unsaid: Men, Women and Prostate Cancer is a true, and very personal account of one husband and wife’s experience through the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. It is a story about healing and recovery, about medicine and alternatives, about mental strength as much as physical recovery.
Unlike most books about prostate cancer, this one tells the story from the wife’s perspective, from the experiences and opinions of the caregiver – all the while relating, with empathy and step-by-step detail the man’s fears, successes, setbacks and recovery. This is a book that looks at the nurturing and spiritual recovery of both the patient and his partner. It offers advice on such medical innovations as cryogenic surgery of prostate cancer, and supplemental treatments using alternative medicines and methods. The Unsaid: Men, Women and Prostate Cancer offers some important background, as well, into the demographics and warning signs of prostate cancer, and talks about some of the risks associated with different treatments. Tony – a fictional name for the real patient –experiences many of the most advanced treatments currently available, and the book provides a chronology of his entire process: from first recognizing there was something wrong, through to diagnosis and surgery, and then the often challenging and ongoing recovery process. All the while Tony’s wife, Connie, is the one cataloguing that process – providing support, looking for her own answers, and trying to overcome her own fears and concerns.
Recovery needs to involve the best possible medical care, but this book also understands alternatives to help sustain full spiritual, mental and physical recovery. Vibrational medicine, acupuncture, reflexology, reiki, homeopathy and hypnonsis all help Tony on his road to recovery. Getting on with one’s life – finding comfort in regular routine, but also gaining a willingness to live life differently and become open to the possibilities of change – are all important aspects of this book.
Mark Anderson You have gone through childbirth , numerous doctors visits for immunization shots and other issues, many feedings and diaper changes, first words and first steps and now the real battle is at hand, potty training.
You wonder how your parent got you through it as you have a toddler who is just not interested in getting things done anywhere else but in the diaper.
The solution to all these challenges are provided in “Potty Training Guide For Your Toddlers: Moms And Dads Guide.” Sure there are quite a number of books on the market that deal with potty training but this one is one of the better options.
The information presented is in no way technical and is pretty easy to implement. Before you know it you will have an even more independent toddler that goes to the bathroom on his/her own and leaves the diaper behind.
The thing that many parents do not realize is that it takes time to potty train and that if rushed that child can rebel and refuse to even try. The rules are simple and the process is challenging but the book makes everything easier for all involved. This is necessary for every home that has toddlers.
About the Author: After having twins and getting to the stage of potty training Mark Anderson and his wife tried every trick in the book to get both their toddlers on track, at times there seemed to be progress but it went right back to zero in no time. As he was a stay at home dad at the time Mark put all of his efforts into doing some research and trying to find the best solutions posted by other parents as solutions to the challenges with potty training.
He found a few and after trying them on his own children he decided to compile all of the information and make it available for other parents that were facing that challenge as well.
He is no guru but his tips and tricks are well worth the read and he even shares some of his own hilarious experiences while he highlights certain points.
The thing that you have to bear in mind is that toddlers are pretty smart and at that stage in their growth they are testing their limits to see just how far they can get with certain things.
It is up to you as the parent to get them back on the right track without seeming overbearing.
