    Featuring David Sedaris's unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life.

    A masterful blend of the exotic locales, dramatic adventure, and magical storytelling, for which Coelho's fictional works are renowned, this true-life account is at once a modern-day adventure and a metaphysical odyssey.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys Coehlo's work and anyone who is interested in personal growth. This book really gives you some things to think about.

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    Much like the best-selling books by Og Mandino, this unique narrative is a blend of entertaining fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Storyteller Andy Andrews gives a front-row seat for one man's journey of a lifetime. David Ponder has lost his job and the will to live.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narration. Writing from the heart the author tells a wonderful story about her journey.

    A groundbreaking and paradigm-shifting book, The Speed of Trust challenges our age-old assumption that trust is merely a soft, social virtue and instead demonstrates that trust is a hard-edged, economic driver -- a learnable and measurable skill that makes organizations more profitable, people more promotable, and relationships more energizing.

    Christopher says: "Son of Covey carries on the legacy..."
    "HIghly recommended"
    Overall

    An excellent book. To the point, good information. Easy to follow, makes sense.

    It takes two individuals to become one flesh. Only when you and your mate know and respect each other's needs, choices, and freedom can you give yourselves freely and lovingly to one another. Boundaries in Marriage gives you the tools you need. Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, counselors and authors of the award-winning best seller Boundaries, show you: why boundaries are vital for a thriving, productive marriage; how values form the structure and architecture of marriage; and how to protect a marriage from intruders, whether other people, affairs, or personal idols. This audio guide helps you understand the friction points or serious hurts and betrayals in your marriage - and move beyond them to the mutual care, respect, affirmation, and intimacy you both long for.

    Stephen says: "Excellent"
    "Real eye opener"
    Overall

    An excellent book on the subject. Lacks a little of the basic information, but if you have the conept of boundaries, you will do well with this book.

    An excellent explanation of the "bidding" description of relationships common thorugh the Gottman work I have read. Good advice for couples/marriage includes significant information and advice for other relationships too.
