    To anyone who has all 5 senses and has ever made an excuse about what they cannot improve their lives in some positive way "NEEDS" to read this book. For someone such as Helen Keller, who lived most of her life without the ability to hear or see, who accomplished the great things she accomplished, There's no reason why people today should make any "excuses" on why they cannot find ways (or better ways) to improve themselves, and their life styles... This book hits the core of a person, "it touches your spirit."

  • Extreme Medicine: How Exploration Transformed Medicine in the Twentieth Century

    Little more than 100 years ago, maps of the world still boasted white space: places where no human had ever trod. Within a few short decades the most hostile of the world's environments had all been conquered. Likewise, in the 20th century, medicine transformed human life. Doctors took what was routinely fatal and made it survivable. As modernity brought us ever more into different kinds of extremes, doctors pushed the bounds of medical advances and human endurance. Extreme exploration challenged the body in ways that only the vanguard of science could answer.

    Story

    This book awoke in me, "A HUNGER" to learn more about the medical field (and I don't have any interest of becoming a doctor, or some type of physician). It opened my eyes to quite a few medical questions that I had, and also filled in quite a few gaps that were missing in my little knowledge, that I had about medical information that I had learned over the years. "Overall," if you want a book that will "open your mind" to some of the great mysteries of the medical field - "THIS IS IT."

    Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

    Story

    Reading this book, has been like learning a foreign language that I "always wanted to know, but never took the time to learn." For a New Entrepreneur such as myself, the information in this book, I feel, has saved me "A LOT" of money from future business decisions that "I KNOW" I will have to make, but am now "better equipped" to do so.

    What I like most about the book, is how the information is delivered in story fashion, and not like some textbook, telling you what you should, or should not do - VERY EASY TO FOLLOW.... A MUST HAVE "FOR ALL" ENTREPRENEURS.

    Spanning world civilizations, synthesizing dozens of political, philosophical, and religious texts and thousands of years of violent conflict, The 33 Strategies of War is a comprehensive guide to the subtle social games of everyday life, informed by the most ingenious and effective military principles in war. Structured in Greene's trademark style, The 33 Strategies of War is the I Ching of conflict, the contemporary companion to Sun Tzu's The Art of War.

    Healing the Shame That Binds You is the most enduring work of family relationship expert and New York Times best-selling author John Bradshaw. In it, he shows how unhealthy toxic shame, often learned young and maintained into adulthood, is the core component in our compulsions, co-dependencies, addictions and drive to superachieve.

    Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can't remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages. Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think and what they value.

    Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

    This book not only answers common sense questions, it answers those very important, sometimes afraid to ask questions - but answers all of the above. It challenges "you," to be the best possible version of "you." If you are looking to gain, not just monetary success, but, success, in general - OPEN THIS BOOK AND JUST "READ" (Whether paperback, or audio)... "GREAT READ," really expands the way one thinks.

It was as if you were sitting face to face with Casanova while he while telling you how his "wildest" exhibitions begin. Very interesting.

    For many, the name Jimi Hendrix conjures up a larger-than-life image of the man who set fire to guitars, women's hearts, and the status quo. In this groundbreaking account, music journalist Charles R. Cross takes a far deeper look. Beyond Hendrix's legendary onstage and offstage magnetism, and his excessive lifestyle, was a man who struggled to accept his role as an idol and privately craved the kind of normal family life he never had.

    Story

    I started this book with no preconceived notions. I just wanted to know more about the Artist known as "Jimi Hendrix", whom I had seen and heard of over the years. From the very beginning of the book, I was in a trance - I did not want to stop reading. From the raw, unedited, details of the story teller, I felt as if I was there with "Jimi" during his life - This is a skill that only "the most" talented writers can do; pulling the reader deep into the story, deep into the "experience." "I highly recommend this book" to anyone looking for "Truth" and "Inspiration" from the life of "Jimi Hendrix."

    Borderline Personality Disorder. "What the hell was that?" raged Rachel Reiland when she read the diagnosis written in her medical chart. As the 29-year old accountant, wife, and mother of young children would soon discover, it was the diagnosis that finally explained her explosive anger, manipulative behaviors, and self-destructive episodes- including bouts of anorexia, substance abuse, and sexual promiscuity.

    This story pulls you in from within the 1st few chapters. By showing what someone feels and thinks when their emotions hit extreme, in many different areas, is very eye opening - it was hard for me to put the book down; wanting to read more, and more and more. Reading her story of BPD, and how she has recovered, was like witnessing evolution, but emotionally, and in a much shorter period of time... "Great Book."
