    One of the most significant books ever written by a head of State, the Meditations are a collection of philosophical thoughts by the Emperor Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180 ce). Covering issues such as duty, forgiveness, brotherhood, strength in adversity and the best way to approach life and death, the Meditations have inspired thinkers, poets and politicians since their first publication more than 500 years ago. Today, the book stands as one of the great guides and companions - a cornerstone of Western thought.

    Sam Motes says: "Insight from man on top"
    "A book that needs to be listened to."

  • The Breakout Principle: Maximize Creativity, Athletic Performance, Productivity and Personal Well-Being

    In The Breakout Principle, Dr. Herbert Benson delivers the ultimate self-help principle - simple instructions to activate a powerful biological trigger that converts conflict and confusion into clarity and extraordinary performance, a state athletes refer to as "the zone."

    "The No Breakout Breakout"
    Overall

    Shock....repeat a word or mantra on your exhalation breath for 20 minutes and you will reach the Breakout Zone! This increases nitrous oxide in your blood, which relaxes you. That's the whole book. Save your credits. There are too many other good books to use them on.

    Children desperately want to become adults, and they learn how from what they see around them. Parents have enormous power to influence their children's lives and directions. By recognizing and harnessing that power, they can help kids develop the sense of belonging, individual identity, self-worth, and competency they want and need to become strong, effective adults.

    Stephen says: "Mediocre at best..."
    "I enjoyed it enough to..."
    Overall

    buy a couple more of Denis' programs. Some good solid reminders. Yes it was worth it.
