Every once in a while a spectacurly talented human being creates something with such all-encompassing genius.
That happened, not once, but twice with author/screenwriter/producer Robert Hammond and his astounding books: Ready When You Are: Cecil B. Demille's Ten Commandments for Success, and C.B. Demille: The Man Who Invented Hollywood (A Novel), both published in 2012 by New Way Press.
One book is more compelling the other; different in presentation (nonfiction and fiction), yet the same; both centering around Demille, another creative genius. As everyone may know, DeMille directed seventy feature films, including classics like The Greatest Show On Earth (1952) and The Ten Commandments (1956).
With both Ready When You Are and C.B. DeMille (A Novel) Hammond takes his cue from Commandments, and invites us into DeMille's epic and electic world. With his work, Hammond delightfullly delivers with such grace, style and intuitiveness not only deep insight into DeMille's incredible life; but explains how the reader may apply the legendary director's existence and philosophies as a guide to success in every aspect of life.
More than just the average self-help book, Ready When You Are presents, as the Prologue outlines, "how to make your dreams come true"; different than any novel you have or will ever read, C.B. DeMille manages to tell a wonderful story of a unique human being without leaving the reader out in the cold.
Indeed, both Ready and C.B. are nothing but warm-hearted, well-written literary platforms for much more than just the casual reader.
No - you just don't read Hammond's books - you experience them; you live them.
All the way to your "A-Life"!
