9781489507648: To Hold The Sun

The award winning book that can change your life!

The book outlines the experiences of a young, poor, and disillusioned reporter who is enticed to do a series of articles about Paul, an unconventional philosopher and motivational speaker. In exchange, he gets to travel to and dive on Roatan, arguably one of the most beautiful, pristine islands in the Caribbean. Through a series of interviews, the reporter gets to know Paul's innermost philosophies. He learns an alternate way of living from a man who strives to perfect handstands on a dock and practices the art of happiness.

When the author realized his children were leaving home to begin their journeys through life, he wrote this story for them. He developed it as a guide to help them through life in a way that would allow them to enjoy the journey. Drawing on wildly diverse disciplines including stoicism, neuroscience, skepticism, behavioral economics, and spirituality; the reader is taken on a journey that exposes the author's philosophy of life. He shows that happiness is indeed a choice.

All places detailed on Roatan exist and are more beautiful than described.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for To Hold The Sun
"Once you begin this book, you won't put it down!"
"Much like Roatan itself, To Hold the Sun is a diverse amalgamof content and influences... this small gem of a book holds  keysthat will help you unlock doors that you didn't even know existed."
"What an amazing book. The worst part about it is that it ended"
"From beginning to end, this book challenges the reader to embrace a different idea of how life can be lived. A true reflection of the beautiful life of an ex-pat living on Roatan"
"A great read from start to finish...you won't be disappointed."
"What a beautiful letter to send his children off into the world."
"A delightful and engaging read... Both intelligent and playful, you are sure to enjoy this book...and perhaps, may be more likely to choose your own happiness."
"A great read that I didn't put down until I was finished"

About the Author:

   CHAS WATKINS was born and raised in England and is a naturalized Australian. His children are all American, which he finds very confusing. He moved to Roatan nine years ago. He has an unused degree in electronics from Hull University in England and has somehow managed to work for many fine and good companies without being fired.      After the raging madness of the dotcom world in California, he moved to Roatan to settle with his family. Chas currently pretends to work as a Realtor and Radio DJ. He reads an awful lot, watches the sunrise and sunset every day and consumes way too much coffee. He runs on the beach in the mornings, practices handstands, and lives happily on Roatan with his cat Gary and the children who have not yet deserted him. Even on his best day he is nothing like his character Paul, but strives to be so.       Occasionally he "likes to dance as if no one is watching" which is ironic as his dancing makes people stare. If you are really unlucky, you may meet him, and whatever you do, don't offer him a drink as he is a very rude and uninteresting person.
