Ten years ago, Janet Woititz broke new ground in our understanding of what it is to be an adult child of an alcoholic. Today, she re-examines the movement and its inclusion of adult children from various dysfunctional family backgrounds who share the same characteristics. After more than 10 years of working with ACoAs, she shares the recovery hints that she has found to work. Listen to Adult Children of Alcoholics to see where the journey began and for ideas on where to go from here.

This book explains so much as to why there is so much pain and suffering in our world caused by alcoholics and the condition they suffer from. A well executed audio version of the print classic. Could not recommend it more.

This delightful little treasure was originally published more than 100 years ago. But all of what it teaches is still practical and applicable. Indeed, most of the modern self-help books probably use this as some sort of reference. Save yourself a ton of money and read this one first.

If you are a human being and you ever experience life as being less than amazing and joyous and wonderful, this audiobook is for you. If you have ever wanted to know more about Buddhism and the Buddha but find books about eastern religion confusing and stuffy, this book is for you. If you long for a path that leads you not to dependence upon another religion or master or anything, but leads you right back to your own best self, this book is for you.

There are so many books on Buddhism with a New Age slant it's almost sickening. But this one is a refreshing break from the norm. An excellent guide to Buddhist thought, philosophy and practices anyone can follow. Even those who have been on the path for many years an learn much from this fresh, modern-friendly and practical book.

You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat a high-fat diet, work out and sleepless, and handle stress with ease. By ditching traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey has maintained a 100-pound weight loss, increased his IQ, and reached a level of health that seemed unattainable. His 40s are truly better than his 20s, and The Bulletproof Diet brings his best hacks to the masses.

In Empires of Trust, Professor Thomas F. Madden explores surprising parallels between the Roman and American republics. By making friends of enemies and demonstrating a commitment to fairness, the two republics - both "reluctant" yet unquestioned super-powers - built empires based on trust. Madden also includes vital lessons from the Roman Republic's 100-year struggle with "terrorism."

This is a must read for anyone interested in the realities of how our world works. A great example of the old "The more things change the more they stay the same" rule. The section near the end of comparing the Romans fighting the Jews and the Americans fighting the Islamic fundamentalists was spot on.

Too bad not enough people in the Obama administration read this book before they decided to pull out of Iraq. They merely put off what will be inevitable and lost a lot of lives to boot.
