Life is beautiful

James A. Cusumano's latest book “Life Is Beautiful: 12 Universal Rules” has just been published. Jim describes what he has found to be 12 Universal Rules
that influence essentially every aspect of the human condition. In this easy-to-follow guidebook, he shows you how to use these rules to create a fulfilled
and balanced life. He provides a straight-forward formula to manifest anything you require for long-term personal and professional fulfillment.

Cosmic Consciousness

James A. Cusumano, owner of Chateau Mcely, has published a book entitled Cosmic Consciousness—A Journey to Well-being, Happiness and Success. The book was inspired by a lecture on reality by world famous author, Dr. Deepak Chopra, who wrote the introduction in the book. Dr. Cusumano shows that our five senses do not perceive our true reality. Written in easy-to-understand language, he explains the direct link between Eastern philosophy
and quantum physics, and using this information, he shows the reader how to create a more meaningful life. Cosmic Consciousness will be of interest
to a wide range of readers - from business people who want to become inspirational leaders to individuals seeking to achieve greater fulfillment,
and happiness in their lives.

The Fallen: As Above, So Below

In The Fallen Jim has drawn on his experience in science, technology, business and Eastern philosophy. He co-founded several Silicon Valley technology ventures, one which grew to a billion-dollar public company. In this novella, Jim reminds us that most of us can go through an entire lifetime believing there’s a logical explanation for everything that happens. Generally, that’s a reasonable assumption. But, every now and then, we encounter an experience that defies our very notion of logic. Sometimes it can be deeply disturbing; and on occasion, even deadly. However, in the right context, such an experience can have an enlightening outcome. In The Fallen such was the case for protagonist Michael Pierce, an intelligent, well-grounded and successful entrepreneur.
For just a few seconds, he inadvertently stepped into an alternate dimension of space and time, into the “Twilight Zone”— and it changed his life forever. Jim‘s intent in his novellas is to stimulate the reader to consider new possibilities above and beyond so-called well-proven, logical concepts.

Jim Cusumano is an accomplished leader with successful careers as an entertainer, scientist, corporate executive, filmmaker, and entrepreneur.
Jim is the owner of Chateau Mcely, an inspiring speaker, and the author of many peer-reviewed technical and business publications. He is also the author
of Cosmic Consciousness: A Journey to Well-being, Happiness and Success and BALANCE: The Business-Life Connection, Life Is Beautiful: 12 Universal Rules and is a coauthor of Freedom From Mid-East Oil.

Twin Terror: Good Seed, Bad Seed

As in The Fallen, the first novella in this series, in Twin Terror, Cusumano draws on his experience to create a thriller immersed in Easter Wisdom
and intrigue. He seamlessly weaves together concepts from metaphysics, mindfulness, science and technology. In doing so, he taps into the power
of Comic Consciousness to explore tragic events that befall the two protagonists, highly-gifted identical twins Sally and Sandra Brunel. The story follows them on a journey that begins at the emergence of these events through the pain of their impact, and finally to redemption and resolution.
Sandra--The Bad Seed-- learns that ultimate redemption and ultimate freedom come at the ultimate price.

The biggest non-truth, particularly propagated by the fossil fuel industry, is that alternative energy technologies cannot address our global needs. Global climate is rapidly changing, primarily due to the works of humanity. Devastating consequences are beginning to occur and will escalate in frequency and intensity. We have very little time to make necessary changes to minimize the impact on us, our children and future generations.
