The Trauma Tool Kit: Healing PTSD from the Inside Out maps out practical aspects of healing from stress-related disorders and provides immediate first-aid techniques that help alleviate the most intense symptoms of traumatic stress in a small amount of time. It shows how the latest findings in neuroscience research support both ancient and contemporary methods of trauma treatment from around the world. In recent years, it has become clearer than ever before that the mind, body, and spirit are connected, and that an illness affecting one affects the whole.

An epic adventure full of incredible characters, death-defying athletic achievement, and bleeding edge science, The Fear Project began with one question: how can we overcome our fears to reach our full potential? Who among us has not been paralyzed by fear? In The Fear Project, award-winning journalist and surfer Jaimal Yogis sets out to better understand fear - why does it so often dominate our lives, what makes it tick, and is there even a way to use it to our advantage?

I love football history and this book should be added to every library.

I hate how the modern game has evolved both on and off the field, this book reminds me that there was a time that football was a man's game .
great performance as well by the reader. I have listened to this many times now.

Would you consider the audio edition of Into Africa to be better than the print version?

Yes, however I did pick up a copy of the print to highlight and make notes in...it is rather tattered now

What was one of the most memorable moments of Into Africa?

The whole trip is memorable...and good information on the medical situation if hurt.

What about Sam Manicom’s performance did you like?

His voice carries you through the story, and I love the way his inflections pull you in...great campfire or pub tales must come from him.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was captivated through out the book and have recommended it as a must read/ must listen on Adventure IQ

Any additional comments?

If you are into exploration by vehicle, this is a must. I have traveled some of these areas and love the way the story is told. We need more audio books that feature both two-wheeled as well as four-wheeled exploration (overlanding).
