No techniques, no tricks, no gimics - simply the best book to help anyone understand what it takes to be a true horseman no matter what your experience or skill level.

If you only have time for one book this year - this should be it

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands the test of time, July 22 2012
I purchased this CD many (many) years ago after watching Donny Osmond in Toronto. Since then I've married and had kids and yet the CD still hangs on in our play list. It was one of the few CDs that my kids have enjoyed at all stages of their lives - the youthful choir brings them in and the playful upbeat melodies are great to sing along too. They don't need to know of their Mother's secret childhood crush on a young Donny O.... It's a great family album - but don't forget to watch the video as well...Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Widescreen)

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every new mother, July 24 2010
This book should be the first one every mother to be receives. Years of experience and the wisdom of the best current breastfeeding experts (including Canadian author Teresa Pitman) combine to make this your best friend during those first nerve wracking days home with a new baby.

2.0 out of 5 stars Someone please help Todd, Jan. 15 2008
Ce commentaire est de: Dragon Harper (Hardcover)
Any Pern fan could have helped Todd out of this mess if he'd just asked.

The poor book can't even be internally consistent - a plague that kills young people in their prime somehow wipes out every journeyman and master at the harper hall? Make up your mind does it kill young or old?

Knowing a plague is coming and that isolation of the Weyr is critical to survival even basic quarantine precautions are not followed? If they had quarantine procedures why not follow them.

And for heaven's sake what happened to the Healer Hall? Why on earth would a plague centred book focus on Harpers?

A critical emergency that is passed to a junior harper? Copying dusty records is more important that the people dying around you?

A shame and a shambles.

Todd - please find someone other than your mother to give you some honest feedback. The book could have been fixed - your characters were likeable and your premise a good start - but you need a lot of help with plot development.

And shame shame shame on the editors - it's your job to make sure the book is a good one.

No tension, no drama, no story - you can't sell books just because they contain dragons (well, I guess you can - but your audience is slipping rapidly away).

I've been working with the Touched by a Horse deck for over a year and it truly is the most amazing intuitive resource. I feel blessed each morning just to see the beautiful illustrations - and each card I pull has a message that fits perfectly into my day. I can't wait to read the full book!

The Doula Advantage: Your Complete Guide to Having an Empowered and Positive Birth with the Help of a Professional Childbirth Assistant

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Doulas are wonderful, April 20 2003
I have had Doula's at both my children's births - one in the hospital with a doctor, one at home with a midwife - and in both cases the Doula made a huge difference to the experience.
If you can only do one thing to help you with your birth hire a doula! This great book will tell you how.
My husband was so happy to have a doula with us - he wanted to share the experience of her birth - but he felt much safer and was able to be more present for me - because our doula was with us.
