    Building on the premises of Power Thoughts and Living Beyond Your Emotions, Joyce Meyer examines the tremendous power of words. - which are the vehicles that convey our thoughts and emotions - and provides a series of guidelines for making sure that our talk is constructive, healthy, healing and used to good results. In a "Dictionary of God's Word" at the end of the book, Joyce provides dozens of scripture verses, arranged by topic, that she recommends reading and saying out loud as one way of using and claiming healing words.

    I purchased this book not knowing who the author was, so I didn't know she was a Christian speaker. The book description doesn't mention that this book is extremely biblical based, so I was completely shocked when I started hearing scripture after scripture blaring out of my car stereo. I'm a new Christian and have been getting more heavily involved with the Word, so it was a pleasant surprise for me, but I can imagine that one who wasn't expecting this and is NOT a Christian would probably be pretty ticked.

    That said, I absolutely love the book. I find the scripture references particularly helpful since I am not all that familiar with the Bible and would have no clue where to look for some of these things.

    Overall, I would say it's probably going to be a big life changer for me.

    (On a side note, the speaker sounds like she's from Boston...it's not overly annoying, but it's not the most pleasant listening experience... no offense to Bostonians.)

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Wow. That's the word I choose to sum up this book. I don't normally feel compelled to write book reviews, but this one definitely earned one. The Martian had me on the edge of my seat for most of the book. It also had me literally laughing out loud several times right up until the very end. You definitely need to read this book no matter what genre you usually like to read. I'm normally not into space travel or scientific stuff, but this is absolutely one I am so glad I bought.
