    This book is all about the single most powerful move that humans can make to promote health, reduce obesity, lower the cost of health care, nurture our fragile environment, conserve our energy resources, feed the world’s steadily growing population, and greatly reduce the suffering of animals in factory farms all over the world. As Dr. T. Colin Campbell says, “It turns out that if we eat the way that promotes the best health for ourselves, we also promote the best health for the planet."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Healthy Eating, Healthy World to be better than the print version?

    It is easier for me to listen to whilst walking the dog than try to read at home surrounded by the family


    What did you like best about this story?

    It contained a lot of useful information delivered within an interesting narrative


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it is too long and there is too much to take in one sitting

    In this unique and invaluable guide, Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician with more than 20 years' experience counseling girls, reveals that a young woman's relationship with her father is far more important than we've ever realized. To become a strong, confident woman, a daughter needs her father's attention, protection, courage, and wisdom. Dr. Meeker shares the 10 secrets every father needs to know in order to strengthen or rebuild bonds with his daughter and shape her life - and his own - for the better.

    Story
    Would you listen to Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters again? Why?

    Yes, there is a lot of information and it would be good as a refresher every so often


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters?

    The need to stay close to daughters when they are in their teens rather than letting them have all the space they say they need


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but it is too long


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately there are a number of references to God. This is likely to turn off a number of readers not inclined to this way of thinking.

  • Excuses Begone!: How to Change Lifelong, Self-Defeating Thinking Habits

    In Excuses Begone! Dr. Wayne W. Dyer reveals how to change lifelong, self-defeating thinking patterns that prevent you from living at the highest levels of success, happiness, and health. You may know what to think but find it terribly difficult to change thinking habits that have been with you since childhood. This business of changing habituated thinking patterns is really the business of eliminating the same old tired excuses.

    What did you like best about Excuses Begone!? What did you like least?

    I most liked the way Wayne removed many of the reasons for resorting to excuses. I least liked the reference to a vague spiritual being controlling our lives. Its a bit "spiritual" for my logical way of thinking


    What three words best describe Wayne W. Dyer’s voice?

    Clear, engaging and smooth


    Did Excuses Begone! inspire you to do anything?

    Recognise the excuse making I do on a daily basis and to try and stop it

    Would you try another book from Deepak Chopra and/or Deepak Chopra?

    Yes as I have read others from him and enjoyed them. This book has no substance or clear suggestions or guidance.


    Would you recommend Creating Affluence to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, it is too fluffy and lightweight to be of any use


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No just the contents


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
