Summary of The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel Van der Kolk. (Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book. If you’re looking for the original book, it is available from Amazon and Audible.) This book is an attractive new alternative to tackle traumatic stress other than expensive drugs and talk therapy. Traumatic stress is something that sadly is getting more and more common. Its effect on the mind and body are atrocious, and it can even affect your biology by rearranging your brain’s wiring.

This book clarified to me many of symptoms i have seen in myself and other people who just seemed angry and upset with the world. And most of all, told me about the angry kids and upset kids and what can be happening with them. Such a wonderful way to put the most horrific things that happen in our past and current world, and most people deny every day.

Fidel Castro was more than just a politician. His is a story that involves heroic voyages through turbulent oceans, affairs with young women from all over the world, spies, assassins, betrayal, conquest, riots, and battles. He was controversial, inimitable, cruel, courageous, stubborn, disrespectful of human rights, and utterly indomitable. But most of all, he never gave up. And this is his story.

It is funny how some outsiders can go to the island and leave "experts", simply because they spoke to a few people. You have to live many years in Cuba to really know how oppressive Castro's regime has been.

If you want to discover the remarkable history of an effort that should never have succeeded, then pay attention.... The first two chapters of this audiobook will provide a brief overview of the history of Cuba, giving depth and understanding to how the revolution came to be. After that, it will plunge into the lives of Batista, Castro, and Guevara, and tell the tale of the revolution.

An awesome read before we visited Cuba this year. I studied Latin American history and Spanish in college, and had forgotten a lot of details that were important about the Cuban Revolution, the history of the colonization and subjugation of Cuban and Afro-Caribe peoples and this book helped me get my "history nerd" back on before our trip.

If you've ever been told that “you’re too sensitive" but suspect that there might be something more to it, then pay attention... Are you sick and tired of people saying that you should grow a thick skin? Do you find it difficult to distinguish someone else's discomfort from your own? Do you prefer taking your own car to places so that you can leave when you please? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll discover from this audiobook: the 11 traits of an empath, and much more.
