5.0 out of 5 stars A Gift!, April 8 2004
In this hurry up world there are plenty of resources to deal with the growing crisis of fatigue and joylessness. However, Dr. Judith Orloff's new book, Positve Energy, offers something I have never seen before....a complete and highly practical and successful program to overcome the energy drains we all face. The real appeal of this book is the clear and simple guidelines Dr. Orloff demonstrates in her book that are actually fun and interesting and not at all hard to do! This is a far cry from the deprivation based programs offered by many medical professionals. Merging her highly credible medical background with cross cultural wisdom and knowledge, Dr. Orloff is on the leading edge. She offers real solutions that lift you up. The book couldn't have a more perfect title, as it is the most positive experience I have found in a book in a long time. Dr. Orloff's book is truly a wonderful gift....for yourself and anyone you care about!

You'll Never Nanny in This Town Again!: The Adventures and Misadventures of a Hollywood Nanny
You'll Never Nanny in This Town Again!: The Adventures and Misadventures of a Hollywood Nanny
by Suzanne Hansen
Edition: Paperback
17 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Great Reality Check!, Jan. 8 2004
As the mother of two girls, I can honestly say there are many days I feel like I am losing my grip on my life! I just can't spend the time and the money to try and look like Michele Pfieffer (as if I could anyway!). However, its a great relief to know that most of the lives of the Rich and Famous run on completely different fuel than the rest of us! Ms. Hansen eloquently describes her days working and living in this alternative reality. Her book is funny and often inspirational and tragic. I can't imagine anyting worse than having my child run to a stranger when she needs a hug. Parenting is all about balance and this is clearly the far end of the spectrum! Read this book if you want to be thoroughly entertained, and educated and inspired on how the other half lives. You might just decide those carzy dinner hours and not having a shower since Kennedy was in office is not so bad!

by Michele Borba
Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 11.54

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have resource!, April 6 2003
Parents are always looking for great ideas on how to improve their kids behavior. Michele Borba's new book offers strategies that are easy and fun to use and that actually work! So many parenting books are based on theory. No More Misbehavin' offers proven and practical ways to address 38 specific behaviors in a way that provides results...and within a short period of time. There is also another unique and important benefit Dr. Borba's book offers...the results are permanent. She shows parents and teachers how to change a behavior and replace it with a more desired behavior. This is what makes her book way ahead of the pack of the many "discipline" books available today. Keep this book close to your nightstand. It will become an indespensible resource.

Sacred Contracts: Awakening Your Divine Potential

5.0 out of 5 stars A blueprint to your soul, Feb. 18 2003
There are many books out there these days which claim to help reveal and understand our soul and our purpose for being here. Myss breaks the mold by offering specific guidelines and exercises to help discover this inner knowledge. Based on certain traditional psychological principals and some eastern religion Myss helps provide the framework to discover the answers to these questions most of us have. This is not a light read. This book requires time and effort. However, if you apply the material, regardless of whether you agree with its origin, you can't help but come away with new self knowledge and strategies for living a more empowered life.
I also highly recommend Intuitive Healing: Five Steps to Physical, Emotional and Sexual Wellness by Dr. Judith Orloff. Dr. Orloff offers a comprehensive and effective strategy for using our minds to create a more joyful life and to develop the capacity to heal our minds and bodies. It is a practical and entertaining book that provides these answers in a way that is fun to read and easy to use. The fact that it is so highly effective is a plus! Make it a nightstand "must-read".

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
by Eckhart Tolle
Edition: Hardcover
Price: CDN$ 20.38
49 used & new from CDN$ 0.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and compelling, Feb. 18 2003
Many of the reviews here seem to be very negative, when the reality is that this book is simply a new and different approach, which is exactly what makes it so compelling. It is refreshing to have such a practical and straightforward approach to living our lives based on something we can control..our thoughts and how they influence how we live. Any book that helps remind us how important this connection is would be worthwhile. However, a book that does so in such an interesting way is worth reading.
I also highly recommend Intuitive Healing: Five Steps to Physical, Emotional and Sexual Wellness by Dr. Judith Orloff.
Dr. Orloff offers the best, most complete and the most fascinating strategy for using our minds to acheive inner peace, success and healing I have seen yet. Add it to your nightstand "must-reads!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and entertaining, Feb. 12 2003
Judith Orloff has built a bridge between the ideas behind spirituality and the capacity to utilize these ideas into our own lives. She offers a practical and wise blueprint to demonstrate specific techniques to access our intuition and she shows how doing so will open our lives to healing and to living a more joyful and satisfying life. Her book is filled with indespensible information that will provide the skills we all need to find meaning and compassion in our world and in our lives. I highly recommend this book be added to the top of the priority list of "must reads."

Mother Nurture
Mother Nurture
by Rick Hansen
Edition: Paperback
17 used & new from CDN$ 24.22

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable-indespensible-must have!, Feb. 3 2003
This review is from: Mother Nurture (Paperback)
I have been overwhelmed with wonderful, but sometimes redundant parenting advice. It is refreshing to have such wonderful information about how to keep moms from losing their balance so they can raise the kids they want to raise. The authors have provided the strategies for moms to get their needs met, which is the key to meeting the needs of a child. Offering practical ideas and information on many crucial topics, including stress, moods, energy, and keeping a couple strong, along with addressing health and work issues, Mother Nurture is truly the most valuable book all parents can have.....or give. I highly recommend reading this book as part of your bedtime routine.
