This book comes from personal experience, both as a long time timeshare owner and from selling vacation ownership. What prompted this book? Well, for too many years I have listened to too many people whom, for whatever reasons have a negative impression about the timeshare or vacation ownership industry. As an owner I inevitably found myself asking them why. The reasons varied from "they do not work" to "we cannot afford it." For those folks this book will open your eyes. The second reason was for all those owners who honestly do not have a clue as to what they own. I wanted to let people understand something that they did not already know or have simply forgotten. Having been a timeshare owner for over twenty-five years I understand, and have experienced, the public perception of the industry. I have also seen it change dramatically during that time. However, it was during my first few years in Mexico when I sold timeshare that I came to understand, and appreciate, the real public perception of the industry. From these experiences I realized that the industry could use a simple "how to" and "why" book. The book is written in a simple, straight forward manner that is easy to understand. The book covers the history, marketplace, the players, the IN's and Out's of attending a sales presentation, of buying one -- good and bad, legislation and much more. A quick, easy read it contains personal stories and antidotes, and easy, self awareness quizzes for you to do. By the end you will know whether or not timeshare is right for your lifestyle.

Skandar Smith has always yearned to leave the Mainland and escape to the secretive Island, where wild unicorns roam free. He’s spent years studying for his Hatchery exam, the annual test that selects a handful of Mainlander thirteen-year-olds to train to become unicorn riders. But on the day of Skandar’s exam, things go horribly wrong, and his hopes are shattered…until a mysterious figure knocks on his door at midnight, bearing a message: the Island is in peril and Skandar must answer its call.

A tour de force of history and imagination, The Lady and the Unicorn is Tracy Chevalier’s answer to the mystery behind one of the art world’s great masterpieces—a set of bewitching medieval tapestries that hangs today in the Cluny Museum in Paris. They appear to portray the seduction of a unicorn, but the story behind their making is unknown—until now. Paris, 1490. A shrewd French nobleman commissions six lavish tapestries celebrating his rising status at Court. He hires the charismatic, arrogant, sublimely talented Nicolas des Innocents to design them. Nicolas creates havoc among the women in the house—mother and daughter, servant, and lady-in-waiting—before taking his designs north to the Brussels workshop where the tapestries are to be woven. There, master weaver Georges de la Chapelle risks everything he has to finish the tapestries—his finest, most intricate work—on time for his exacting French client. The results change all their lives—lives that have been captured in the tapestries, for those who know where to look. In The Lady and the Unicorn, Tracy Chevalier weaves fact and fiction into a beautiful, timeless, and intriguing literary tapestry—an extraordinary story exquisitely told.

In this third book, Luzi looks into our connection to nature and gets a deeper understanding of life, nature, the planet and creation itself. This connection is initially established with a consciousness that appears as the human concept of the Unicorn. The horn is not really a horn, but a swirl of energy or, more precisely, a point of consciousness for communication to consciousness and energy. This point is widely misunderstood to be the third eye, as people imagine it to connect to the visual cortex for creating images. When Luzi visits the twenty-two crystal caves, she encounters the new energy that may benefit the one who has the consciousness to tap into it. Luzi’s perspective is the artificial intelligence, AI, robotics and augmentation and evolution of the human body, and how humanity will live with these things. Her daughter, Julia, focuses on the human coalition with the planet and the imbalance between the feminine and the masculine. Divine wisdom is given through the unicorn, Alea, the white dragon, Loong, the crimson dragon, Shaumbra, Gaia, Pan, Kuthumi, Saint Germain, Sekhmet and others. Luzi will connect to her own divine wisdom as she continues on her journey for embodied realisation, also called enlightenment. Even though the book is part of a series, this is a complete story in its own right.
