for parenting. I've read the whole Babywise series, Parenting with Love and Logic, 5 Love Languages for Children, Assertive Discipline for Parents, Bringing Up Bebe, and maybe more, but this books seems to be the most practical with lots and lots of examples and scripts. I liked this book so much because the scripts really help you understand, imagine, and practice the concepts discussed. Very practical. I will be buying the print version as well to refer back to often.
The reason why this book is so good is because the writing is so descriptive and poetic. You can feel what the characters feel, and the imagery that develops in your mind, as you hear the words, places you right there where the characters are. If this is a translated version, i can't imagine how much more wonderful the original version would be.
loved the audiobook to listen in the car. it was so fun reliving the movie as we listened in the car, on the way to school, running errands, etc. My kids loved it!
i really love the philosophy of this book. It is uplifting, and a relief that dieting is not the solution, but developing and maintaining a lifelong "healthstyle"...I plan to buy the physical book and keep this as a guide/manuscript. Very practical advice on what to do - how to eat mindfully in particular.
I really liked this book because it explained how to think like a "naturally" thin woman, not a "dieting" thin women. Great concepts that are very convincing in an outline form for you to follow. I think the audiobook is great, however, I'm going to get the written book as well, so that it will be easier to refer back to often.
this was a fascinating book! There is ALOT of technical and scientific information to get through and to understand, in order for you to really comprehend how a habit is formed and maintained. It encompasses historical evidence, psychology, and practical guidelines on how to change an existing habit. I believe that this book makes you be more mindful of your habit so that you can effectively change habits or use habits to your advantage. What a great foundation to learn, especially when embarking on new endeavors.
If you need to be convinced of why carbohydrates make us fat, this is the book. I didn't really understand how the body metabolizes carbohydrates and now I do. The next step, however, to learn how to do this in a practical way. This book clearly explains, this is not a one-size-fits all, but is a great launching point to change our mindset about how we've been looking at obesity. I'm excited to learn more about how to make this new found knowledge into a long term lifestyle change for myself and my children. I think my next focus will be on learning more about sugar addiction, and the re-wiring of our brains to deal with sugar addiction. Any suggestions?
I thought this book did a good job regarding describing the differences between being an introvert and being an extrovert. I really liked how it illustrated the dynamics between an introvert-extrovert relationship. I thought this was the most useful and practical part of the book. In addition, it also helped me realize that what I had mistaken for my lack of confidence or self-esteem, was actually just my being an introvert. However, despite what the title professes, I felt it didn't really talk about the introvert 'advantage'. I felt like it was more of a pep-talk merely giving us 'permission' and justification to being an introvert. I think I'm interested in reading The Quiet by Susan Cain, and I will be able to give a better review after I 'read' that one. Please let me know if anyone has read both. It would be good to have a discussion. Thanks!
I'm a believer in evidence-based medicine, but I also believe there is some cosmic force that is bigger than just science. Whether that is spirituality, self-healing, or something else, this book gives you much research and scientific evidence that there is 'something else' going on. What a wonderful book. I'm such a fan that I subscribed to her webpage and get her daily emails on 'listening to your own pilot light.' I also have the physical hardcopy of the book. The narration by the author is excellent. She has several TEDx talks, which I highly recommend if you'd like to get a glimpse of what this is all about. I highly recommend this book.
This book talks about 2 different mindsets: growth mind-sets and fixed mind-sets. You can be either in different parts of your life. The book gives you plenty of examples of the 2 kinds and helps you figure out where you are on the scale. In doing so, it gives you practical tips and ways on how you can change your mindset. This can be applied to parenting, business, relationships, etc. I mainly got this for parenting my young school age children, but i was pleasantly surprised at how useful it was in applying it to other aspects of my life. It is more than just telling your kids to be great. I would combine this book with the 5 Love Languages for Kids, and it would round out how I'd like to parent them in this current stage of development. I didn't particularly like the narration, but eventually i got used to it, and it was okay. The content of the book more than made up for it. I hope this helps. I highly recommend it.
