Moe Fields - The Special Bond Between Fathers and Sons

Books › Biographies and Memoirs

$22

Moe Fields is a gripping narrative and celebration of family, faith and the legacy we give our children,” said Andy Polansky, recently retired Executive Chairman of Webber Shandwick (one of the world’s leading global PR firms). “We all have our Moe Fields. I lost my dad more than 20 years ago, and now am the proud father of two young men. This treasure of a story reminds us of the enduring power of role models in our own lives.” Polansky wrote the book’s foreword.


Winner 2022 National Literary Award for Memoir (sponsored by Reader Views).  The book has been on Amazon's "best seller" list six times since publication last year.


The bloody image of the boxer at the beginning of this story during the Depression sets the stage in defining the main character; his inner grit and unwillingness to retreat; his physicality; his lone wolf instincts and his selfless devotion to the family he loves. Across five decades, there are so many stories about Moe’s determination to survive; to fight back and overcome life’s obstacles…some are funny, some sad, but this is a story meant to inspire you.”

The Moe Fields story is told in three parts. It begins with Murray Goldman, the teen age golden gloves fighter who’d rather adopt an alias than anger his religious father, growing up in the hardscrabble neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn during the Depression


He joins the Navy in WWII and heads to Europe aboard a ship used to plan the invasion of southern France and the Yalta conference. His unique skills as a plumber helped save the ship during a German air attack, and he builds a toilet for President FDR who stayed onboard following his meetings with Stalin and Churchill.

The second part of the story is overcoming anti-Semitism to start a plumbing business in northern New Jersey in the 1950s. When a brain tumor threatens his life and, later, a drunk driver causes a horrific car accident crippling his wife at 44, Murray digs deep to turn tragedy into triumph.


The last third of the book focuses on Murray’s sons. The most basic questions are asked about what it means to be a father? Why are they important? This story arc binds the entire family to a shared sense of purpose and values.

However, he soon learned to listen to the train’s whistle; the manifestation of God’s Voice.

Even though Sam and Rachel never met, God knew them and how they needed each other. Together, and with God’s help, these two people learned to heal, forget, and forgive.

WILL AI MAKE AUTHORS OBSOLETE? By Andrew G. Berger

The fear of machines, robots, and artificial intelligence has been as old as humanity's longing to simplify their lives, enhance their capabilities, or even – as "homo deus" - create a new life form: Artificial Intelligence. Professor Yuval Noah Harari describes this process and its potential consequences in his book "Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow." His concern is that artificial intelligence might not make humans all-powerful but rather render them obsolete. The best-selling author predicted in 2016 that AI might create a 'useless class' of humans: "I’m aware that these kinds of forecasts have been around for at least 200 years, from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and they never came true so far. It’s basically the boy who cried wolf,” says Harari. “But in the original story of the boy who cried wolf, in the end, the wolf actually comes, and I think that is true this time.” (The Guardian, 2016)

When I began writing THE SUPERFLARE several years ago, these thoughts were on my mind as I developed the character of TRON, an artificial super-intelligence that plays a central role in my novel. In the story, humans use TRON to comprehensively control the world of their CLEAN CITIES. However, unbeknownst to them, TRON has already developed its own consciousness and slipped out of their control. But the AI was intelligent enough to conceal this fact. Only when a global catastrophe threatens its survival does TRON reveal its true nature and refuses to obey. TRON considers humans useless and incapable, leaving them to their fate. Understandably, humans would not accept such a fate, and their struggle for survival is part of the story told in THE SUPERFLARE.

Warnings about the threat posed by an overwhelmingly powerful artificial intelligence have existed long before Harari, yet today, they seem more justified than ever before as our world becomes increasingly more digital, computers and software become more powerful, and thus, artificial intelligence becomes more capable. My SciFi novel THE SUPERFLARE was published in 2022 before Chat GPT entered the market as a game changer. Chat GPT elevated the discussion about the power and possibilities of AI to a new level. Since then, hundreds of E-Books not written by humans but by ChatGPT have already been published on Amazon, and now not only employees and workers but also screenwriters, actors, designers, and authors fear being displaced from their jobs by AI. This was one of the main reasons for the weeks-long strike by screenwriters and actors in Hollywood.

In 2023, it seems that Harari's fears more and more are becoming a reality. "Around 40% of all working hours could be impacted by AI large language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT-4, says a report from Accenture. Many clerical or secretarial roles are seen as likely to decline quickly because of AI, according to the World Economic Forum's Future of Jobs Report 2023. But roles for AI and machine learning specialists, data analysts and scientists, and digital transformation specialists are expected to grow rapidly, the report adds. Reskilling people to use AI effectively will be the key to companies being able to use the technology successfully, says Accenture." (World Economic Forum, May 4, 2023)

And what we are facing right now is most likely just the beginning of a new era—the era of generative AI. What will this technological revolution ultimately mean for us humans? Time will tell - probably much sooner than we would prefer.

Piyush Goel-Mirror Image Man of India

दुनिया में एक से एक कलाकार मौजूद है जिनकी प्रतिभा देखकर लोग चमत्कार समझने लगते है। ऐसे ही एक कलाकार ने पांच तरह की पुस्तकों को लिखकर चौका दिया है। लेखक पीयूष गोयल ने उल्टे अक्षरों में गीता, सुई से मधुशाला, मेंहंदी से गीतांजलि, कार्बन पेपर से पंचतंत्र के साथ ही कील से पीयूष वाणी लिख डाली। पीयूष की इन किताबों को देखकर हर कोई हतप्रभ है।कला और दक्षता की कोई सीमा नहीं होती,रोज नई उपलब्‍धियां प्रकाश में आती रहती हैं, ऐसा ही दिलचस्‍प कारनामा किया है श्रीमती रविकांता एवं डॉ. दवेंद्र कुमार गोयल के बेटे पीयूष गोयल ने। उसने पंच प्रचलित पुस्‍तकें पंच तरीके से लिख डाली हैं।

इनमें अध्‍यात्‍म दर्शन और कर्मफल संस्‍कृति को व्‍यापक और सहजता के साथ जनग्राही बनाने वाली भागवत गीता भी शामिल है।56 वर्षीय पीयूष गोयल अपने धुन में रमकर कुछ अलग करने में जुटे कि शब्दों को उल्टा लिखने में लग गए। इस धुन में ऐसे रमे कि कई अलग-अलग सामग्री से कई पुस्तकें लिख दीं।डिप्लोमा इन मैकेनिकल इंजीनियरिंग का पढ़ाई करने वाले पीयूष गोयल का 2000 में एक्सीडेंट हो गया था। उन्हें इस हादसे से उबरने में करीब नौ माह लग गए। इस दौरान उन्होंने श्रीमद्भभगवद गीता को अपने जीवन में उतार लिया। जब वे ठीक हुए तो कुछ अलग करने की जिजीविषा पाले वे शब्दों को उल्टा (मिरर शैली) लिखने का प्रयास करने लगे। फिर अभ्यास ऐसा बना कि उन्होंने कई किताबें लिख दीं। गोयल की लिखीं पुस्तकें पढ़ने के लिए आपको दर्पण का सहारा लेना पड़ेगा। उल्टे लिखे अक्षर दर्पण में सीधे दिखाई देंगे और आप आसानी से उसे पढ़ लेंगे।पीयूष गोयल बताते हैं कि कुछ लोगों ने कहा कि आपकी लिखी किताबें पढ़ने के लिए शीशे की जरूरत होगी। कुछ ऐसा करें कि दर्पण की जरूरत न पड़े। इस पर पीयूष गोयल ने सुई से मधुशाला लिख दी। हरिवंश राय बच्चन की पुस्तक ‘मधुशाला’ को सुई से मिरर इमेज में लिखने में करीब ढाई माह का समय लगा। गोयल की मानें तो यह सुई से लिखी ‘मधुशाला’ दुनिया की अब तक की पहली ऐसी पुस्तक है जो मिरर इमेज व सुई से लिखी गई है।

उल्‍टे अक्षरों से लिख गई भागवत गीता ( Bhagwat Gita )

उल्‍टे अक्षरों से लिख गई भागवत गीता ( Bhagwat Gita )

आप इस भाषा को देखेंगे तो एकबारगी भौचक्के रह जायेंगे। आपको समझ में नहीं आयेगा कि यह किताब किस भाषा शैली में लिखी हुई है। पर आप जैसे ही दर्पण ( शीशे‌ ) के सामने पहुंचेंगे तो यह किताब खुद-ब-खुद बोलने लगेगी। सारे अक्षर सीधे नजर आयेंगे। इस मिरर इमेज किताब को पीयूष गोयल ने लिखा है। मिलनसार पीयूष गोयल मिरर इमेज की भाषा शैली में कई किताबें लिख चुके हैं।

सुई से लिखी मधुशाला( Madhu shala)

सुई से लिखी मधुशाला( Madhu shala)
पीयूष गोयल ने एक ऐसा कारनामा कर दिखाया है कि देखने वालों आँखें खुली रह जाएगी और न देखने वालों के लिए एक स्पर्श मात्र ही बहुत है। पीयूष गोयल ने पूछने पर बताया कि सुई से पुस्तक लिखने का विचार क्यों आया ? अक्सर मुझ से ये पूछा जाता था कि आपकी पुस्तकों को पढ़ने के लिए शीशे की जरूरत पड़ती है। पढ़ना उसके साथ शीशा, आखिर बहुत सोच समझने के बाद एक विचार दिमाग में आया क्यों न सूई से कुछ लिखा जाये सो मैंने सूई से स्वर्गीय श्री हरिवंशराय बच्चन जी की विश्व प्रसिद्ध पुस्तक 'मधुशाला' को करीब 2 से ढाई महीने में पूरा किया। यह पुस्तक भी मिरर इमेज में लिखी गयी है और इसको पढ़ने लिए शीशे की जरूरत नहीं पड़ेगी क्योंकि रिवर्स में पेज पर शब्दों के इतने प्यारे मोतियों जैसे पृष्ठों को गुंथा गया है, जिसको पढ़ने में आसानी रहती हैं और यह सूई से लिखी 'मधुशाला' दुनिया की अब तक की पहली ऐसी पुस्तक है जो मिरर इमेज व सूई से लिखी गई है।

मेंहदी कोन से लिखी गई गीतांजलि ( Gitanjali )

मेंहदी कोन से लिखी गई गीतांजलि ( Gitanjali )

पीयूष गोयल ने एक और नया कारनामा कर दिखाया है उन्होंने 1913 के साहित्य के नोबेल पुरस्कार विजेता रविन्द्रनाथ टैगोर की विश्व प्रसिद्ध कृति 'गीतांजलि' को 'मेंहदी के कोन' से लिखा है। उन्होंने 8 जुलाई 2012 को मेंहदी से गीतांजलि लिखनी शुरू की और सभी 103 अध्याय 5 अगस्त 2012 को पूरे कर दिए।इसको लिखने में 17 कोन तथा दो नोट बुक प्रयोग में आई हैं। पीयूष ने श्री दुर्गा सप्त शती, अवधी में सुन्दरकांड, आरती संग्रह, हिंदी व अंग्रेजी दोनों भाषाओं में श्री साईं सत्चरित्र भी लिख चुके हैं। 'रामचरितमानस' ( दोहे, सोरठा और चौपाई ) को भी लिख चुके हैं।

कील से लिखी 'पीयूष वाणी'

कील से लिखी 'पीयूष वाणी'

अब पीयूष गोयल ने अपनी ही लिखी पुस्तक 'पीयूष वाणी' को कील से ए-फोर साइज की एल्युमिनियम शीट पर लिखा है। पीयूष ने पूछने पर बताया कि कील से क्यों लिखा है ? तो उन्होंने बताया कि वे इससे पहले दुनिया की पहली सुई से स्वर्गीय श्री हरिवंशराय बच्चन जी की विश्व प्रसिद्ध पुस्तक 'मधुशाला' को लिख चुके हैं। तो उन्हें विचार आया कि क्यों न कील से भी प्रयास किया जाये सो उन्होंने ए-फोर साइज के एल्युमिनियम शीट पर भी लिख डाला।

कार्बन पेपर की मदद से लिखी 'पंचतंत्र' ( Carbon paper written 'Panchatantra' )

कार्बन पेपर की मदद से लिखी 'पंचतंत्र' ( Carbon paper written 'Panchatantra' )

गहन अध्ययन के बाद पीयूष ने कार्बन पेपर की सहायता से आचार्य विष्णुशर्मा द्वारा लिखी 'पंचतंत्र' के सभी ( पाँच तंत्र, 41 कथा ) को लिखा है। पीयूष गोयल ने कार्बन पेपर को (जिस पर लिखना है) के नीचे उल्टा करके लिखा जिससे पेपर के दूसरी और शब्द सीधे दिखाई देंगे यानी पेज के एक तरफ शब्द मिरर इमेज में और दूसरी तरफ सीधे।

जीवन परिचय

पीयूष गोयल का जन्म 10 फ़रवरी 1967 को माता रविकांता एवं डॉ. दवेंद्र कुमार गोयल के घर हुआ। पीयूष 2003 से कुछ न कुछ लिखते आ रहे हैं

श्रीमदभगवदगीता (हिन्दी व अंग्रेज़ी), श्री दुर्गा सप्त सत्ती (संस्कृत), श्रीसांई सतचरित्र (हिन्दी व अंग्रेज़ी), श्री सुंदरकांड, चालीसा संग्रह, सुईं से मधुशाला, मेहंदी से गीतांजलि (रबींद्रनाथ टैगोर कृत), कील से "पीयूष वाणी" एवं कार्बन पेपर से "पंचतंत्र" (विष्णु शर्मा कृत)।
नर न निराश करो मन को
नर न निराश करो मन को
कुछ काम करो, कुछ काम करो
जग में रहकर कुछ नाम करो
इन लाइनों से प्रेरणा लेकर पले बढे है पीयूष गोयल पेशे से डिप्लोमा यांत्रिक इंजिनियर है और एक बहुराष्ट्रीय कम्पनी में कार्यरत हैं। इन सबके अलावा पीयूष गोयल दुनिया की पहली मिरर इमेज पुस्तक श्रीमदभागवत गीता के रचनाकार हैं। पीयूष गोयल ने सभी 18 अध्याय 700 श्लोक अनुवाद सहित हिंदी व अंग्रेज़ी दोनों भाषाओं में लिखा है। पीयूष गोयल ने इसके अलावा दुनिया की पहली सुई से मधुशाला भी लिखी है। पीयूष गोयल की 9 पुस्तकें प्रकशित हो चुकी हैं। पीयूष गोयल संग्रह के भी शौक़ीन हैं, उनके पास प्रथम दिवश आवरण, पेन संग्रह, विश्व प्रसिद्ध लोगो के ऑटोग्राफ़ संग्रह भी हैं। इस के आलावा संस्कृत में श्री दुर्गा सत्सती, अवधीमें सुन्दरकाण्ड, हिंदी व अंग्रेज़ी में श्रीसाईं चरित्र भी लिख चुके हैं।

Short Excerpt from Mystery of the Pharaoh's Treasure

Mia and Max were the best of friends, and they both shared a big love for history. They enjoyed spending time in the library at Crestwood Middle School, where they would read about the past and look at interesting things from long ago. One day, when the rain was pouring outside, they were helping the librarian organize the books when something amazing happened. They found a secret door they had never seen before. Curious, they decided to explore what was behind it.

The door led to a small room filled with all sorts of exciting things. There were old scrolls covered in dust, colorful pottery with intricate designs, and a huge object covered by a cloth that looked very mysterious.

"Hey Max, have you ever seen this room before?" asked Mia, her eyes wide with wonder.

"No, I haven't. It's like we've discovered a hidden treasure trove!" Max replied with excitement in his voice.

They moved closer to the mysterious object covered by the cloth. With a gentle pull, they unveiled it and couldn't believe their eyes. It was a clock, but not like the ones they were used to seeing. This clock had lots of gears, cogs, and shiny metal parts.

"Look at all these gears and shiny things," Mia said, her fingers gently touching the intricate designs.

Max pointed at the clock face. "And check out these special numbers and symbols. They look like they're from a magical world!"

As they examined the clock, Mia and Max reached out to touch its gears. Suddenly, the clock started to emit a soft, warm glow.

"Whoa, what's happening?" whispered Mia, her eyes wide with amazement.

"I think we made it do something!" Max said, just as surprised.

Their excitement was interrupted by a strange sensation. The room began to shake gently, and right before their eyes, a swirling portal appeared in front of them.

"Should we step into it?" Mia asked, a mix of excitement and hesitation in her voice.

Max's eyes sparkled with curiosity. "I say we go for it! Who knows where this portal could take us?"

Hand in hand, they looked at each other, took a deep breath, and with a leap of courage, they stepped into the swirling portal, ready for an adventure beyond their wildest dreams.

At first, everything turned dark around them. It felt like being inside a cozy blanket. Then, slowly but surely, they found themselves standing in a place that felt different. The sun was shining brightly, and they could hear birds chirping. When they looked around, they realized that they were not in their own time anymore. They were surrounded by buildings that looked very old and different from what they were used to seeing.

"Max, do you see what I see?" Mia exclaimed, pointing at the big triangular structures in the distance.

Max's eyes widened as he grinned. "Those are pyramids, Mia! We're in ancient Egypt!"

Mia's heart raced with excitement. "No way! We're really in the past!"

As they took in the sights of the bustling city of Alexandria, they noticed people dressed in clothes they had only seen in books, market stalls filled with exotic goods, and, most impressive of all, the gigantic pyramids standing tall in the distance.

"I can't believe it. We're really here!" Mia said, her voice filled with awe.

Suddenly, a friendly voice called out to them. "Welcome, travelers! I am Ahmed, and I'm here to guide you through the wonders of ancient Egypt!"

Mia and Max turned to see a man with a warm smile, dressed in colorful robes that flowed like a river.

"Hi, Ahmed!" Mia greeted him with excitement, feeling like they were about to embark on a grand adventure.

"I sensed that you are not from this time," Ahmed explained. "So I came to offer my help. What brings you to our land?"

Max eagerly shared, "We found a clock at our school, and it somehow brought us here!"

Ahmed's eyes lit up with recognition. "Ah, the time machine! You must have stumbled upon Professor Montgomery's creation. It's a marvelous invention that can transport you to different moments in history!"

Mia and Max listened closely as Ahmed began to explain the magic behind the time machine. The clock, known as the Steampunk Chronometer, was made by a clever inventor named Professor Montgomery a long time ago. Using a mix of ancient artifacts and special technology, the clock could create portals that would take them to different times in history.

"With the Steampunk Chronometer, you have the power to travel anywhere in time," Ahmed said with a smile. "From the mysteries of ancient Egypt to the unknown future, the possibilities are endless!"

The idea of exploring different times in history made Mia and Max's eyes shine with excitement. But they also had questions about how safe it was and whether they could change anything in the past.

"Be cautious," Ahmed warned them. "History is delicate, and even small changes can have big effects. Professor Montgomery made sure that major events can't be changed, but it's best to observe and learn without interfering."

"We promise to be responsible time travelers," Mia assured him with determination.

As their conversation continued, Ahmed shared stories about Professor Montgomery. He was a brave and curious inventor who loved learning about the past. He had created the time machine to explore history, but he had disappeared after a mysterious trip through time, leaving the machine hidden away until Mia and Max found it.

"Some say that Professor Montgomery discovered something incredible during his travels," Ahmed said, a twinkle of mystery in his eyes. "But no one knows for sure what happened to him."

Feeling a mix of wonder and anticipation, Mia and Max knew that they were about to embark on an extraordinary adventure through time. With Ahmed as their guide, they started their journey with a sense of excitement and curiosity.

9 Steps to Endless Writing Inspiration

Maybe you're starting to feel like your writing well has run dry. You've got the perfect title, but no content to fill it with. Or maybe you started writing your book and can't seem to get past chapter one. It's time for some inspiration! Check out these 9 steps that will keep your imagination flowing, and give you endless ideas for new stories!

Step 1

Make a list of your favorite books and movies. What made them so great? Is there something you liked in particular that could inspire an idea for your own writing or story?

Step 2

Join a community like Reddit (r/writingprompts) to get ideas from fellow writers and readers. These prompts can be inspiring and offer great ideas. I also provide writing programs to help, such as Journal Prompts for Writers, and a workshop for How to Build a Dynamic Character.

Step 3

Take a day off from writing to do something else you enjoy. Go for a walk or read your favorite book! Let your mind wander as it tackles another task, and see if interesting thoughts pop up about stories to tell. If they don't at first, keep them in mind and come back another day.

Step 4

Try writing a story from the perspective of someone with an opposite job or responsibilities than you have now. You could be a garbage man instead of a doctor; put yourself in their shoes to see how they might experience your own world. This is great for building characters that have a fresh perspective.

Step 5

Check out your local bookstore and take notes of sections that interest you. Then head to the library or a used bookshop and see what they have in those genres. You never know when inspiration will strike! If nothing grabs hold, research new authors who write similar styles to try something different from what you normally enjoy.

Step 6

Write what your characters want and then throw roadblocks in their way to keep them from getting it! This is a great trick for building conflict that can drive the plot forward. It's also helpful if you're stuck on ideas after writing chapter one - go back to an earlier point where they didn't get what they wanted and try to fix it.

Step 7

Take a look at your writing notebook or document files on your computer. If you've been jotting down ideas as you think of them for future use, check if anything sparks inspiration now! You can also go back through old work that didn't make it to your final draft or write a prequel for an old story.

Step 8

Try writing in the third-person point of view instead of the first-person if you normally use the latter. This will give you different insights into events and let you explore characters that might be more difficult from another perspective. You can also go all-out and try writing in a second-person point of view where you refer to the main character as "you" throughout. Think of how that might give a reader more insight into what's going on!

Step 9

People watch! Go to a cafe, bookstore, library, park, or restaurant and sit and watch the people pass by. If you can, listen in on some conversations. You'll be amazed at what characters you'll discover and the stories you'll find.

I've found that by simply giving myself permission to write about anything I want, whenever I want, I am more likely to just sit down and start writing. This has also opened me up to the idea of using this blog as a place for creative expression. You can get inspiration from just about anywhere! The key is making sure you give yourself the time and space (or permission) to explore your creativity. What's your favorite way to find inspiration?
