5.0 out of 5 stars Baseball from a rare perspective, April 4 2004
Ralph Kiner is the personification of a solid role model for any baseball fan. He is a Hall of Famer in every sense of the word. In this breezy account of America's greatest game, Kiner pulls no punches in terms of his feelings about those who have influenced his life--Hank Greenberg, Branch Rickey, former teammates, and his beloved late wife DiAnn. He also does not shy away from today's controversial figures, including Pete Rose and Barry Bonds. Since he was instrumental in establishing the first players' association, he is no stranger to the struggle for such things as free agency.
Those of us fortunate enough to know Ralph Kiner well enough to call him a friend, can testify that he is one of today's outstanding conversationalists who speaks the sort of truth that can come only from real-world experience. Co-writer Danny Peary has maintained the immortal slugger's unique "voice" in helping to craft this page-turner.
To the die-hard baseball fan, this book will trigger some treasured memories of the past; for the newcomer to the sport, it will reveal how the game has evolved over the past 60 years.
This is a "must read" for baseball enthusiasts everywhere.

This book is a winner. Speaking as one who has suffered with stomach disorders for a decade, I can testify that the information is solid and easy to understand. In fact, it's the most pragmatic book I have ever seen on this subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natural Stomach Cure, Nov. 20 2003
Since I have suffered from digestive problems for a full decade, I had more than a passing interest in this book. After reading it, I put into practice some of Dr. Minocha's teachings. I can testify beyond any doubt, his counsel works. In my opinion, it is, by far, the most pragmatic book written on the subject. I highly recommend it.

Stress; Living Working in A Changing World
Stress; Living Working in A Changing World
by GEORGE MANNING
Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 35.96

5.0 out of 5 stars A pragmatic approach to solving a universal challenge, Aug. 4 1999
In the academic arena, some books offer sound intellectual insights; a few present a nuts and bolts approach to a problem. Dr. George Manning's newest book on stress is one of the rare volumes that offers both.
A seasoned and respected psychologist, George Manning has the credentials that demand respect. He also has a way of relating sophisticated truths to the real world of the workplace.
I highly recommend this book for company executives, for teachers, for clergypeople and for anyone else who must work with people who are in the state of "becoming."
