History has been taught through illusions in order to divide and establish power. These constant illusions force the Psychopathic Genius to develop a stream of consciousness that evokes a maladaptive schizophrenic disposition. In this schizophrenic state, the Psychopathic Genius manifests recurring illusions that were once used to control as a means of controlling. As the story progresses, these illusions become so cliché that it forces the Psychopathic Genius to rebuke societal doctrine. This epic doesn't evolve, instead, it shows the continual war that we all fight: Protagonist vs. Antagonist, God vs. Satan, Adam vs. Eve, Rich vs. Poor, Old vs. New, Parent vs. Child, Black vs. White, Right vs. Wrong, Morality vs. Judgment, Society vs. Individual, Master vs. Slave and most pertinent to the Psychopathic Genius: Nigger vs. Racist. Step inside the lost paradise of a Brave New World. This book is rated PG: Psychopathic Genius... Vanity is the only sanity.

In 2012, Derrick Rose was on top of the world.After growing up in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood, Rose achieved an improbable childhood dream: being selected first overall in the NBA draft by his hometown Chicago Bulls. The point guard known to his family as "Pooh" was a phenom, winning the Rookie of the Year award and electrifying fans around the world. In 2011, he became the youngest MVP in league history. He and the Bulls believed the city's first berth in the NBA Finals since the Jordan era was on the horizon. Rarely had a bond between a player and fans been so strong, as the city wrapped its arms around the homegrown hero.Six years and four knee surgeries later, he was waived by the Utah Jazz, a once surefire Hall of Fame career seemingly on the brink of collapse. Many speculated his days in the NBA were over.But Derrick Rose never doubted himself, never believed his struggles on and off the court were anything other than temporary setbacks. Rather than telling the world he had more to give, he decided to show them.I'll Show You is an honest, intimate conversation with one of the world's most popular athletes, a star whose on-court brilliance is matched only by his aversion to the spotlight. Written with New York Times bestselling author Sam Smith, Rose opens himself up to fans in a way they've never seen before, creating a document that is as unflinching—and at times as uncomfortable—as a personal diary.Detailing his childhood spent in one of his city's most dangerous neighborhoods; his relationships with both opponents and teammates; the pain and controversies surrounding his career-altering injuries; his complicated relationship to fame and fortune; and his rise, fall, and reemergence as the player LeBron James says is "still a superhero," I'll Show You is one of the most candid and surprising autobiographies of a modern-day superstar ever written.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I wanted to title this book I’ll Show You, because it represents me, my story, and who I am. It shows both sides of my personality. I’m an introvert, and I didn’t understand that for a long time. But it’s also how I lead by example. #2 I was always told about how gifted I was when it came to basketball. I could get places on the court without scoring, and I never played a game against any of my brothers because they knew I was better than them even though they were so much older. #3 I’ve been making history every time I’m on the court. I’m a hooper, and hoopers can do anything. I feel that 25th shot to win the game is going in. I feel like I’ll make the right play at the right time. #4 I think my greatest gift is listening to people. I’m more observant than I am outgoing. I didn’t realize that until I was 25 or 26. I’m used to being around people, but after a while I need time to recharge my batteries.

‘A wonderful Christmas love story, I absolutely loved this book… Hilarious and fun, I found myself laughing out loud several times… I could not put this book down.’ Goodreads Reviewer ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Nina Bailey loves Christmas. Except this year she doesn’t. Because it turns out that her husband-to-be has been cheating on her – and her beautiful wedding ceremony in the snow is cancelled. She’s not really in the mood to be jolly, sing carols, or go anywhere near gingerbread men – in fact, what Nina wants is to avoid the whole thing. So she’s come to stay at her Aunt Dolly’s cosy café to nurse her broken heart. Nina is determined to get through Christmas with no tinsel, no fuss – and definitely no flirting. So when she arrives and meets infuriatingly handsome Ryan Sadler, with his gorgeous forest-green eyes, she is not best pleased. And when Nina overhears him making fun of her, she is furious. (There might have been an incident with a koala onesie and a spilled bottle of milk, but that really wasn’t her fault!) So despite the spark between them, and the fact that he can whip up a fabulous dinner faster than she can say Michelin star, romance and Christmas are off the menu this year. Unfortunately, Aunt Dolly hasn’t quite got the message, going to great lengths to provide a proper British Christmas for her beloved niece: a true home away from home. With sparkling lights adorning every wall and a tree to equal the Rockefeller Center’s and, yes, mistletoe above every doorway, can Nina resist the magic of Christmas – and stick to her no-romance rule? This heart-warming romantic comedy will have you reaching for eggnog, roasted chestnuts and gingerbread cookies!
