As the 32nd president of the United States of America, Franklin Delano Roosevelt is a common household name in both his home country and the world. Known as the man who led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II, Roosevelt was a leader and a statesman, a scholar, and a politician. Franklin D. Roosevelt is the only president to have served for three consecutive terms and voted in for a fourth, a fact that allows him to stand out among the long list of American presidents.

The best biography of FDR I have ever read and I have read at least eight others. This book is superbly researched and a great read to boot.

The heading says it all. This book is a vital viewpoint on Reiki’s introduction and how it works. It's more than an introduction, a general education of Reiki.
Some of the philosophies presented are the authors own opinions and should be viewed as such, rather than as definitive rules of Reiki. It's just a classic, great Reiki book!

I was straightaway concerned to the tone of this book. It's welcoming, educational, self-revealing, and all-inclusive. The author fortunately shares his journey while humanizing the reader about virtually two dozen reflexology techniques.
The detailed directions are easy to trail. If you have an interest in this healing art and want a primer, this book is a very appealing introduction.

These are involved at a level that can be implicit for the accomplished marketer who has contextual but does not requirement to go profound into the math. The attention is comprehensive with both administered and unverified means in data mining.

This is a good book but I think a day trader needs to focus on more especific trading tactics. The most succesful day traders will focus most of the time on a limited number of stocks and on a limited number of factors. To reduce those numbers even more, many top traders will concentrate only on stocks with momentum. One of the most important aspects one must grasp when trading a stock with momentum is how to approach the rally. Knowing how to trade the rally makes all the difference in the world. Not many books cover this aspect in a simple yet detailed manner.

Learn how to find fulfillment and still your mind through the teachings of Buddha. This book contains a brief overview of Buddhism. Like many heroic stories, the tale of this religion starts with one man's quest. Siddhartha Gautama was no ordinary man. He was a prince who gave up riches and a life of comfort in order to pierce the veil of body, mind, and spirit. With his fearless confidence and deep compassion for others, he achieved what few before him had ever known.

I am not new to the teachings of Buddhism but was looking for somewhere to re-start. This book focused on the core of Buddhism which is awareness and what that means to Buddhist's. At times I was a little confused but these teachings are new to me and ultimately I have a clear understanding. The book was a good start and I am looking into further readings on understanding the Buddhist path.

Without a doubt, the name Jacqueline Kennedy draws multiple thoughts to mind. She is, perhaps, most well-known for her service as the first lady of the United States when her husband, John F. Kennedy, took office as the president, and for her role in restoring the White House. While she made major impacts on the White House, Jackie was much more than her title of first lady.

My friend first listens to it and made for some good discussions with me. He actually convinced me to download this audible and it is indeed fantastic book.

Gambling is a dangerous, addictive, and expensive hobby, in fact it's the fastest growing addiction on the planet. Smart phone technology has sparked a global gambling epidemic, the temptation to gamble is now literally in the palm of our hands. Mind blowing, record breaking profits are being recorded by online casinos and sports betting companies. As a result, hard-working everyday people are gambling money they simply cannot afford to lose. I was one of the many who suffered extreme gambling addiction.

This book is great for those interested in the myths. It describes (in order of power and rank) the Gods in both Greek and Roman name. It focuses more on the Roman names but in the beginning, tells who their Greek name as well. The book is flexible and easy to carry in a large purse. HIglights many well-known stories that you may have heard of as a child. Highly recommended! Kathy Marques
