Deliberate Discomfort

Jason Van Camp, author of Deliberate Discomfort

Highly anticipated new book shows how embracing discomfort enables winning on the battlefield, in the boardroom, and in life

Deliberate Discomfort provides an intensely practical and enlightened path which challenges us to break out of our comfort zones.”

— Former Secretary of the Dept of VA and P&G Head Robert A. McDonald

WASHINGTON DC , UNITED STATES , December 4, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s a question that has been asked for centuries: What are the real lessons of war? And can those lessons be applied away from the battlefield? Jason Van Camp and his team of Special Forces combat veterans not only answer it, but relay lessons learned under fire to show you how: By embracing adversity and getting comfortable being uncomfortable.

Follow Mr. Van Camp’s journey as a new Special Forces leader searching for leadership lessons amongst some of the most decorated combat veterans in the military. Hear from Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg about how his training prepared him to tackle a suicide bomber. How fellow MOH recipient Leroy Petry’s never-surrender mentality gave him the strength to grab an enemy grenade and throw it, losing his hand but saving his teammates’ lives. Together, the stories in Deliberate Discomfort paint a picture of how others’ extreme circumstances and life or death situations are learning experiences we all can apply to our lives.

Mr. Van Camp attended and played football at West Point before earning his U.S. Army Ranger and Special Forces tabs. Major Van Camp then served as a Detachment Commander with 10th Special Forces Group, deploying multiple times to war zones in the Middle East and Africa, receiving three Bronze Stars, one with Valor.

Now for the first time, he’s sharing the stories of these twelve highly decorated combat veterans and relating their experiences to personal and business relationships.

Deliberate Discomfort: How U.S. Special Operations Forces Overcome Fear and Dare to Win by Getting Comfortable Being Uncomfortable is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and wherever books are sold, with a release date of February 18th, 2020.

Praise for Deliberate Discomfort has been pouring in from all corners:

Former Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs and longtime Proctor and Gamble head Robert A. McDonald says, “Deliberate Discomfort provides an intensely practical and enlightened path which challenges us to break out of our comfort zones. It will undoubtedly be lauded by both military and non-military readers alike as a powerful catalyst for individual change.”

Television and film actor and retired Marine Lt. Colonel Rob Riggle calls Deliberate Discomfort “Straight up authentic. For anyone that has ever wanted to overcome fear and do more in their life, Jason Van Camp doesn't just tell you to do it, he shows you how to do it. I have a renewed appreciation for the power of the human mind to dare to win.”
Frank W. Abagnale Jr, portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the film version of his best-selling book “Catch Me If You Can” calls Deliberate Discomfort “Gripping. Authentic. Engaging. Prodigiously researched, carefully argued, and gracefully written… a masterpiece."

Former Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera says, “This book provides leadership and life lessons that will stay with me for the rest of my career and life. Every leader should read it.”

New children’s book on how to overcome bullying with strength and bravery. Verti-goat by Irish author Austin Mackle

We all have the power to change the world

We all have the power to change the world, even a mountain goat with a fear of heights”

— Austin Mackle

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, December 4, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bullying on the increase within age groups 7-16….

At a time when bullying and its terrible consequences are being highlighted daily in the news, Verti-Goat is a beautifully illustrated children's book about how to not give up hope. We all have the power to bring change for ourselves and others, we all have the strength and bravery needed to overcome challenges that life throws at us. Vergo epitomizes this and with the love and support from his family and friends he becomes our unlikely hero.

There’s something quite funny about an animal who struggles to cope with the fundamentals of its being and Vergo is a mountain goat with the fear of heights and an inability to climb.
But on a more serious note, it’s something we can all relate to. There are areas in life that everybody struggles with sooner or later, especially as children. Vergo is here to show that nobody is alone and the thing that makes people different from everyone else is usually their best quality in disguise.
To quote Marianne Williamson –
“It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us”

Synopsis:
Vergo can’t wait to be as brave as his dad Buck, but with a fear of heights and an odd appearance he struggles to find his place in the world. He gets bullied because of it but with the love and support of his parents and best friend Penelope he will find his way and save the tribe from a dangerous foe.
Everyone is running their own race at their own pace.
Join him in his adventure and find out how he became the Verti-Goat.

About the Author
Austin Mackle grew up on a farm in Ireland, surrounded by animals, books and beauty. Fascinated by nature, he discovered very early on the power that stories had. Reading books with big beautiful illustrations and compelling stories with his siblings and parents are some of his favorite memories growing up. He has traveled most of his life, where he discovered creative writing as a vehicle of telling those stories. He now lives in London where he splits his time between his business and writing. Austin has won prizes for both creative writing and short stories. Verti-Goat is the first chapter of a series of books all touching on different difficulties of life growing up. Book 2 focuses on strong female characters and the loss of a family member.

Verti-Goat is a book for all ages, with reading level of 5+. It has global themes and relevance, the first of a series of 6.

In Memory of L. Frank Baum… Most of us leave our mark as little more than scant ripples on Life's Oceans of Time. Others, however, make waves that carry on and outward to Time's farthest shores.”

— Peeky ( AKA Bob Moyer)

TAMPA, FLORIDA, USA, December 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — An ILLUSTRATED contemporary and commemorative eBook Trilogy celebrating L. Frank Baum’s 120th anniversary of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

This Wizard of Oz takeoff is a multidimensional plot-twister that includes an updated original cast and a host of other wondrous quirky social misfits. This complex and intriguing parody has as much tongue-in-cheek humor as it does original content, adventure, mystery, fantasy, and romance.

YESTERYEAR

First published in the year 1900, electrical lighting, indoor plumbing, and automobile ownership were not widespread. There were less than 8000 cars on the road and no more than ten miles of paved roads. “Technology" was a train that could travel in six days that a covered wagon would take six months.

TODAY

"Technology" means medical miracles, lasers, drones, stealth bombers, satellite surveillance, space station, cyber warfare, and quantum computers. Incredible graphics in games like Minecraft and Fortnight and in films like Harry Potter, and Star Wars, have raised the bar. Today's fantasy lovers expect "fantastic" and it takes "awesome" in books and films to meet those expectations. The Wizard Was Odd trilogy has that kind of universal appeal. The glorious Lands of Western Oz, with elements of fantasy, steampunk, and science fiction coupled with its bizarre inhabitants, and their extreme subcultures will draw today’s fantasy readers and game-minded fans into an Oziian world unlike any other.

THIS IS NOT A CHILDREN'S BOOK. IF YOU ENJOYED THE HARRY POTTER SERIES, THIS IS FOR YOU!

This will be the highly anticipated Art Miami/Basel Week debut of Mr. Brainwash’s impressive new Subway piece, the world premiere of Brendan Murphy’s latest chrome sculptures, added new works to Maria Svarbova’s Swimming Pool series, and all new works by Hijack, Daniele Sigalot and David Drebin.

Mr. Brainwash (born Thierry Guetta in 1966) began his artistic career over 17 years ago documenting the underground world of street artists. Eventually this endeavor introduced him to Banksy, who is arguably the most anonymous and famous street artist living today. With the encouragement of Banksy, Guetta began creating his own street art. In 2008, Mr. Brainwash produced an explosive first solo show, Life is Beautiful. The epic display of hundreds of breakthrough works revolutionized the art scene not only in Los Angeles, where the show was held, but worldwide. This phenomenal exhibition skyrocketed Mr. Brainwash’s popularity. His artistic evolution is chronicled in the Academy Award nominated documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop, coincidently directed by Banksy. Known for his stylistic combination of pop and street art, Guetta creates his works by brilliantly fusing together historical pop imagery with contemporary cultural iconography. This year the gallery is excited to showcase the artist’s continual revolutionary experimentation with new media and subject matter. The special exhibition will showcase his newest broken vinyl record collages, which give both material and subject a new life by “making singers live forever with what they sold.” Mr. Brainwash will also be showcasing a show stopping work of art that features a multi-panel Subway train which consists of mixed media on Aluminum, Plywood, and Plexiglass.

With popular demand, Contessa Gallery is bringing back Hijack this year with all new exciting work that brings viewers attention to todays modern generation. Contessa Gallery will highlight Hijack’s continual evolvement as a studio fine Art Star, in addition to being one of the world’s most respected street and graffiti artists. His talent is showcased in his detailed stencil and oil work, controlled paint drips and striking urban compositions. Working at the intersection between street art and fine art, Hijack presents a refreshing future for the next generation of artists.

A world-renowned artist, Brendan Murphy pushes the walls of creativity beyond the confines of the canvas and has since explored 3-dimensional work, concept pieces, and a wide range of different materials. In doing so, Brendan has developed his own style, a definitively dynamic mix of the abstract and figurative form. Brendan’s talent lies in his ability to balance these various elements of exploration against the backdrop of his greatest inspirations: formulas, equations, relationships, and the spectrum of human emotion. Along with recent paintings from his iconic Chalkboard Series, Contessa Gallery is excited to premiere an all new series of unique, chrome sculptures that are extraordinary in scale and technique. These sculptures are created using a process exclusive to Murphy, resulting in a vibrant chrome-based painted finish. The gallery is looking forward to debuting these exciting new works at Art Miami.

Through his massive paper plane installations made out of aluminum and stainless steel sculptures, Daniele Sigalot is gaining critical acclaim in the fine art world, with major museum shows highlighting his talent. The center of his research spins around the ambiguity between the perception of the materials he uses and their actual nature. His iconic paper plane installations appear ephemeral at first glance, but are in actuality hand-crafted out of metal. This year will be the Art Basel Miami premiere of his latest and greatest body of work to date. “Muhammad Ali,” featuring 2,000 units of handmade aluminum post-it notes, a new dynamic plane sculpture installation, “13 Attempts of Greatness,” and “It Doesn’t Take Magritte to Say this is Not a Paper Plane”.

David Drebin is one of the most successful and highly collected multi-disciplinary artists working today. The gallery will display new, never before seen photographs, light-boxes, and neon light installations by the artist at Art Miami. His works are compilations of alluring fantasies, didactic landscapes and mysterious circumstances, all in some way or another idyllic in appearance.

Maria Svarbova’s Swimming Pool series will be brought again to Art Miami this year with new 2019 photographs added to the collection. Maria Svarbova (B. 1988 – ) is an up and coming game changer in the contemporary art world giving a fresh take on portrait photography. Born in Slovakia one year prior to the end of communism, Svarbova explores the relationship between Socialist era architecture and public space and pulls from the geometric visual elements of functionalist design. Her distinct style departs from traditional portraiture and focuses on experimentation with space, color, and atmosphere. Carefully composed figures create thematic, dream-like scenes with ordinary objects. Her elegant and thought-provoking photographs evoke a contemplative silence, and her postmodern vision boldly articulates a dialogue of the isolation of the human experience.
