    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.

    Each of us struggles with the existential questions of meaning, purpose, and responsibility. In The Meaning of Life, the Dalai Lama examines these questions from the Buddhist perspective, skillfully guiding us to a clearer understanding which can liberate us from the prison of selfishness and suffering.

    Fitness, nutrition, awareness, and discipline are not just words, but tools. The human body is an amazing machine. A woman's body is a culmination of everything she has ever eaten and all of the physical activity she has ever done. Women are constantly being pressured about how they look. This book was written to help women everywhere understand their bodies and what they are capable of, instead of absorbing the misinformation that surrounds them.

    Janina says: "Motivated me to buy the full book."

    What did you love best about The Body Book by Cameron Diaz?

    I wasn't sure if the book was going to be "goofy". Once I heard this one I knew the full book was going to good. Short and to the point however enough information to make you want to know more.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Chronicling his embodiment of the American Dream, Total Recall covers Schwarzenegger's high-stakes journey to the United States, from creating the international bodybuilding industry out of the sands of Venice Beach to breathing life into cinema's most iconic characters and becoming one of the leading political figures of our time. Proud of his accomplishments and honest about his regrets, Schwarzenegger spares nothing in sharing his amazing story.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    What an incredible life he lead. It shows how nothing in life is easy. He went from nothing to being successful and living the big dream. Taking every opportunity life sent him. He is very smart and ambitious.


    What did you like best about this story?

    His start in life and how he ended up in the USA. He is very street smart and clever. I underestimated him.

    Cameron Diaz shares her formula for becoming happier, healthier, and stronger in this positive, essential guide that is grounded in science and inspired by personal experience. Throughout her career, Cameron Diaz has been a role model for millions of women. By her own candid admission, though, this fit, glamorous, but down-to-earth star was not always health-conscious. Learning about the inseparable link between nutrition and the body was a life-changing lesson.

    Would you listen to The Body Book again? Why?

    Very informative and educating. We need to change our lifestyle. This book tells it to you like it is.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Narrator sounded like Cameron Diaz which I thought was great . I like how honest and down to earth Cameron was about her own experiences.


    Which character – as performed by Cameron Diaz and Sandy Rustin – was your favorite?

    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    You are what you eat. This couldn't be more true.


    Any additional comments?

    The science and how it was explained got a little boring. However it did not take away from the rest of the book.

    Why are some people more successful than others? Self-confidence! What one great goal would you set if you knew you could not fail? What wonderful things would you want to do with your life if you were guaranteed success in anything you attempted? Your level of self-confidence determines the size of the goals you set, the energy and determination that you focus on achieving them, and the amount of persistence you apply to overcoming every obstacle.
