    Do you ever feel like your life is moving at the speed of light? Are you constantly trying to "keep up" with all of your commitments and responsibilities? As a wife, mother, and co-pastor of Lakewood Church - America's largest church - Victoria Osteen knows as well as anyone that operating in so many different roles can be extremely demanding, yet she has managed to find balance, living her life in the unforced rhythms of grace.

    "Loved Love Your Life!"
    Overall

    I have listened to many of Joel Osteen's sermons and books, so I thought I might be bored by repetitive information, but I wasn't at all. I do love Joel, but I must say I might have enjoyed Victoria's book even more than Joels'!

    Living the life of your dreams isn't just about dreaming. It's also about living: following your impulses, turning over every stone, and stepping out into the world so that the wind can catch your sails. To those in the know, it's as if your dreams paint the picture and the Universe stands ready to bring it to life. Choose Them Wisely is filled with the same inspirational messages from "the Universe" that made the Notes from the Universe trilogy so popular, but the thoughts have been expanded.

    Jes says: "Good book to help people move forward"
    "STOOOOOOP!!!!"
    Overall

    I wish I had read the other reviews before buying this "book." I'd read "Infinite Possibilities," by the same author, which I rated a 5, so I thought this would be just as good. It was really stupid, though, and with no continuity, it was hard to even get through.

  • SuperFreakonomics

    SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again, exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as: How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa? What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common? Can eating kangaroo save the planet? Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else.

    Rich says: "Worth Your Time"
    "Not as Good as the First One"
    Overall

    My title says it all....seemed to be more obvious information in this one, or maybe I'm just getting smarter after having read the first one!

    Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as "soda is liquid Satan" and "you are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin", it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations.

    Erica Marie says: "I stopped drinking soda immediately after"
    "Gets You Motivated"
    Overall

    I agree with several reviewers; I am by no means a prude, either, but I was grossed out by some of the profanity in this book. However, it did really open my eyes to how unhealthy I had been eating and inspired me to make a change (for like three days). That's why I gave it four stars. But I did skip a lot of the second part of the book because it turned into vegan propaganda.

    It seems we're all growing more negative. Bad news on the TV and in the papers makes us all feel fed up and we find it easier to talk about what's wrong instead of looking for what's good. But imagine knowing a simple trick that you could use to help you feel better about everything. That simple trick does exist, and it's time to learn how to "Flip It".

    Genny says: "Great Pep Talk"
    "F$#% Flip It"
    Overall

    Sorry about the harsh title. I didn't hate this book, but I was very disappointed. I was probably disappointed because I have read many of these types of books, so I have heard most of the stuff he presents before. I agree with the reviewer that said this book was for the lowest common denominator. I thought it was going to be an overall philosophy, but mostly the author goes about giving specific tips. I did find the "drink apple cider vinegar for an upset stomach" tip interesting, but I wasn't looking for that type of advice when i bought this book.
