The Core Program: Fifteen Minutes a Day That Can C&hellip by Peggy Brill
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept, June 26 2004
While I agree with the other reviewer that Brill's book should not put down pilates and yoga when a number of her exercises have roots in each, and I haven't actually done the workout yet, I thought the book had a lot of interesting points to make about body balance, and core strength. The test for core strength was enlightening, although I suspect I probably would have put more emphasis on how to correct core weaknesses closer to the test (or maybe do a "If you have difficulty doing this test exercise, refer to page ___"). While I checked this book out of the library, I suspect I will be buying my own copy in the future.
Curves: Permanent Results without Permanent Dietin&hellip by Gary Heavin

I'd heard about Curves, and decided to check out this book from the library to decide if I wanted to try out the Curves system. As other reviewers have said, this is Atkins all over again. More than 2/3 of the book is about diet. While there is a SMALL section about the exercises, to be honest, I didn't see an exercise in there that was particularly original.

Baby Mickey Plays Hide and Seek by Golden Book
5.0 out of 5 stars My baby loves these books, April 17 2004
I've had this book and "Baby Mickey's Toys" since my daughter (now 10) was a baby, and my youngest loves them. There's only one or two sentences per page turn, so they make good read aloud books when baby's attention span is short. The pictures are adorable too!
