4-0 out of 5 stars Get other materials by Hawkins too.
First,
5-0 out of 5 stars An incredibly important work.
I first learned of this book while listening to an audiobook by Wayne W. Dyer. While reading it, I realized it was one of the most important books I would ever be exposed to. The author goes into such amazing detail. This is a must-read for anyone wanting to improve not only their own life but humanity as well. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and any other book written by Dr. David R. Hawkins.

5-0 out of 5 stars Vedic Astrologer Finds Ideas That Fit
Dr. David Hawkins, a former psychiatrist, has quantified the most important aspects of human behavior to help us clearly be able to not only separate the good from the bad but also to rank the "good" in some sequence.

Editorial Review

Bill Phillips had been publishing bodybuilding magazines and marketing nutritional supplements for years when he had a weird revelation at a trade show: many of the most loyal and enthusiastic readers he had were totally out of shape. From that uncomfortable realization came his popular Physique Transformation Contest (top prize that first year: Phillips's own Lamborghini), now world famous, and this book.Read more

I listened to the Book on CD, and particularly enjoyed the comments and testimonials by those who've already done it. Those made me believe that I can do it too.
5-0 out of 5 stars Body for LifeFan
I've been using BFL on and off for the past 3-years.If you stick with it it really works.Just tailor it to suit you.If your a woman you might want to substitute some of the excercises for those that are geared towards women.Awesome book for just getting started and workout junkies.

5-0 out of 5 stars This "diet" works. Period.
I have read many of the reviews for this book and I am dismayed at those people who have given it less than four stars. I seriously doubt they have actually followed through with the program. Pick up a copy of Men's Health magazine. They are preaching the same thing: high-protein, moderate carbohydrate meals, six times a day. EVERY issue gives specific recipes supporting this eating lifestyle. Heck, I picked up a Fortune magazine a few weeks ago, and they said the same thing: six small meals a day. Bill Phillips just figured it out before everyone else did.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very thorough, not well proofread
This book is very thorough, and although it seems a bit alarmist, it's apparent that the information he covers could really become necessary in terms of a major disaster. My primary criticism is the in the editing. The author continually uses the word "loose" when he means "lose," for example, and it's an error that's found throughout the book. It makes me cringe when I see it, but when you get past things like that the information is valuable and it's well presented.
4-0 out of 5 stars Disaster Preparedness Books
If you're like I was, you're looking through the various disaster preparedness books wondering which one is best. I have worked my way through 7 of the most popular books and offer a shared review of all of them here. I hope this comparison helps you make a decision.
3-0 out of 5 stars The best?
I picked up this book after having read it some time ago. Reason is I chanced to read these reviews, and I'm stunned. Best book on the subject, perhaps. However, I've yet to read one book, on the subject, worth the price. Please, do yourself a favor and use the price of this book as partial payment for a Red Cross course. Very much of the content is common sense, and more important, time is valuable - don't waste it on this. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Remedies
Excellant Kidney Cleanse program if you get Kidney stones, this will put an end to them.
5-0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life !!
I was in the military and exposed to a lot of chemicals without proper protection (sanding and painting metals).Then i got two large dental fillings, and a year later i started having dicomfort around my middle (in retrospect, probably kidney irritation).Had to wear loose pants.A couple years later my whole life began to deteriate.I had chronic yeast infection, urinary infection, and watery bowel movements with stomache cramps.Military doctors treated with temporary infection treatments, but didnt offer any indepth search for the cause of this seemingly sudden onslaught of ill health.My sex life was seriously effected, and my marriage was strained.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful.
I have a lot of books about body cleansing and alternative healing, but this one has information, which I never heard before like zapping or removing gold from the body for obese people. Also I think author is a little bit abscess about not using any metals even stainless steel, but she does recommend using plastic; and it is a little bit confusing about usage of filters. But I gave this book five stars anyway, because I think, that it has extremely valuable information and it is one of must have books. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Balanced Nutrition
It looks simple and easy. It's all about you!
1-0 out of 5 stars Le Garbage
Sure, you might lose weight on this diet, but ultimately, your health will decline.Almost everything in here is packed with sugar or preservatives as the suggested ingredients.I actually GAINED weight from this plan!I was only 5 lbs overwight when I started (125 and 5'4") and gained five in about a month and a half.I switched to Ultrametabolism which actually has meat 116.5 (4 lbs. BELOW recommended weight for my height) and I feel fantastic.Buy Ultrametabolism by Dr. Mark Hyman, it contradicts everything (almost) that this book says.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!
This is a fabulous cookbook.The recipes are simple and quick.The results are delicious and filling.I eat virtually all of my meals & snacks out of this book, and my energy remains stable throughout the day. I use about 95% of the recipes, which is unprecedented for a cookbook in my home, as my family tends to be picky.This has made dinners much for enjoyable for all of us without compromising my weight.

I have read over a dozen parenting books including Playful Parenting, Easy to love, Difficult to Discipline, Picking Your Battles, Kids, Parents and Power Struggles, P.E.T. and Unconditional Parenting just to name a few.This though is the first book parenting book, I've ever reviewed, because it's the only one that has truly helped me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This book pretty much sums up all a man needs to know about picking up women. My only problem was the approach; Clink helped me practically step-by-step on how to get better at the initial approach. He also helps with keeping a conversation and when to stop it. Its just a fantastic book.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not the best but decent for the price
I've read everything on the subject of seduction.SO its hard for me to view books as someone who is reading it for the first time.I've also read hundreds of articles on seduction and posted the best of them on my website The Seduction Bible.So lets just say, im educated.THat being said:
3-0 out of 5 stars READS LIKE A LOVE LETTER TO "SPEED SEDUCTION" SHAM ROSS JEFFRIES...
... and although there's some inspiring ideas to be found here, there's also some pretty crazy schemes that could get you into serious trouble (lying in wait along bike paths and jumping in the way of attractive females at the last moment in order to meet them???... that's the kind of thing that'll scare the bejeezus out of women, create a creepy first impression and possibly even get you arrested)... his 3-second rule is also highly questionable: immediately approaching every attractive woman you see within 3 seconds of spotting her - first of all, fussy types with discriminating tastes need a little more time to decide who's worth pursuing and, secondly, in a nightclub scenario, this approach will only make you appear to be a desperately impulsive horndog - and no woman likes being hit on by a horndog (and neither do their jealous boyfriends, a critical "X" factor you have to ascertain before zooming yourself into an awkward situation)... instead, think like one of the big cats on the African plains hunting its prey - be patient, play it cool, scope the room, zero in on your chosen targets, assess their situation and figure out what your approach will be before making your move - after all, what's the big hurry? But if you happen to lock eyes with one of your targets, NOW would be the time to implement the 3-second theory (be cool about it - don't cause drinks to spill on your way over - just casually move in beside her).

5-0 out of 5 stars A lot of userful advice
We turn to a lot of books for helping in raising our daughter (now 2 and a half) and the various issues we face."What to Expect the Toddler Years" is among our top three, along with Penelope Leach's "Your Baby & Child" and the American Academedy of Pediatrics's "Caring for your Baby and Child".The advice of the three is quite consistent (including on such "hot button issues" as when to wean), but this What to Expect Book provides the greatest help on day-to-day stuff.The philosophy is consistently respectful of the child, and the book is full of useful advice.

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I enjoyed the first two books in this series so much that I did not even look at the reviews listed here before putting it on my birthday wish list. Now I wish I had. I guess I would call what I do "attachment parenting" and I have not yet decided when to cut my son from the breast -- but unless he insists it won't be his first birthday. When I read the section on breastfeeding I literally threw the book across the room. It is not just biased, it is flat out wrong. I happen to know a lot about breastfeeding and so I suppose I could just ignore them on this issue -- but with it being so wrong I wonder what else they got wrong; things about which I am not knowledgeable.

2-0 out of 5 stars Eh, it was okay, but...
The first two entries into this library were great, but this book did not live up to my expectations.Some of the advice given was outdated, and sometimes just plain wrong.I have used it a bit, and I do read the monthly chapters as my child ages, but I would not use it as my primary source of information, and certainly not as my sole source of information. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Simplicity itself
This book breaks it down to such a simple recipe --- even a caveman could do it!(Sorry Gieco.)
5-0 out of 5 stars Healthy, sensible, simplistic weight loss plan
I give Dr. Gott a standing ovation for creating a simplistic plan for weight loss.Complex plans that require higher math skills (a la 40-30-30) or intense memorization (is it no carbs with proteins or no fats with carbs or no fruit with protein or other carbs?) tend to frustrate dieters at some point in the process and they resort back to the old, weight-gaining ways.Dr. Gott's plan has 2 main rules - don't eat anything with flour (in any form) or sugar (in any form).C'est tout, as the French say (and we all know they don't get fat...:)The fact this plan is simplistic does not mean that it is easy to follow.I have been amazed daily when trying to follow Dr. Gott's basic recommendations how much food I eat on a normal basis that contains sugar and flour (and I suspect any self-respecting comfort-food loving, chocolate addict will feel the same).No bread (but you can have corn tortillas that are not made with corn flour).No pasta (mama mia!).Most cereals are out (except whole grain with no added sugar of any type).No desserts at restaurants (although there are some great recipes in the book).What does that leave, you ask?Wholesome foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins (although I'm a vegetarian, so that means soy products and beans), and whole grains like oatmeal (which I'm eating now), bulgur, brown rice, etc. (but NOT anything made with whole wheat FLOUR).Basically, what this plan does then is cut out all the processed foods which we shouldn't really be indulging in, anyway, and it concentrates on whole foods that are healthy and nutritious.For those who would rather die than give up sweets, Dr. Gott does allow products with artificial or fruit sweeteners, so you can still have your Diet Coke (not exactly a health food, but we have to have some vices, right?) and anything else you can find that is sweet but has no flour or "real" sugar.

In my humble opinion, Dan Miller has written a valuable tool to help you better understand yourself and transition into a better career.Some reviewers see the book as just another "cut and paste" title.Yes, there is some of that in the book, but it doesn't hurt to be reminded of things we have previously heard but forgot.Also, there is some new interesting information included in the book, particulary the ample number of websites you can access to help you along in your transition.

4-0 out of 5 stars Trigger point mania
I love this book I have had a chance to use it a lot in my practice. It has tons of great information, be prepared a long read it is a medical manual so to speak and it can be a little on the long side, but if your up for it, It is a fantastic asset...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent text
I found the information quite thorough.It is written in a user-friendly way, easy to understand.I bought this book because it was listed as a reference for the chiropractic practice part 2 exam.This book helped me with the locations of the trigger points.Sometimes the chiro boards like to ask questions on trigger points.However, Leonardi's book: National Board of Chiropractic Part II Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers and National Board of Chiropractic Part III Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations are excellent for board exam preparation.These three books are needed for the part II and Part III of the boards.

5-0 out of 5 stars The ultimate in drug-free pain relief!
As a Clinical Massage Therapist at a hospital, I use these books almost daily.In fact, I just ordered my second set. . . The first is so threadbare it's barely usable.ANYTIME I have a patient with a pain that I can't immediately identify I grab my Travell's.This set is an absolute BIBLE for anyone in the health care industry.Travell and Simons have esentially written "The Instruction Manual" for elliminating myofascial pain by going to it's source!Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars We Want More!
In his adroitly served "Enough", Juan Williams meticulously defends the honor and polishes the tarnished star of Sir William Cosby.While retorting to the haters of individual responsibility, Mr. Williams offers real solutions (not just talk), to the plague that has infected multitudes of African Americans, who live on both sides of the tracks!His intricate weaving of history, politics, and culture qualifies his work as required reading for all with any trace of African ancestry. As a matter of fact, it would be good reading for anyone with any dealings with African Americans, which leaves out no one.

3-0 out of 5 stars I really really wanted to write a good review...
I first heard of this book on a radio show and was very impressed with Williams' take on black leadership in America.I was shocked to hear these words coming from Juan Williams, who is the token liberal (whoever thought that "token" and "liberal" would ever go together?) on FOX News.I began reading the book thinking that I would be as impressed with the ideas expressed by Williams as much as I was will Bill Cosby's 2004 speech.I was disappointed for two major reasons:
4-0 out of 5 stars Only Half the Job is Done
Juan Williams gets an "A" for effort, but this book does not go far enough. It is part of the dishonest black circular firing squad started by Cosby, where blame is readily meted out when the cause is black men, but the punches are carefully pulled when the cause seems attributable elsewhere, perhaps, god forbid, even to irresponsible black women.

3-0 out of 5 stars Family Therapy An (Humdrum) Overview
This text is very dry reading.As a student, I had to force myself to read by promising myself rewards every ten pages (yes! I can go get a drink! Then ten more pages and then yes! I can call my mom!) And I am interested in the subject, and love to read.The information is good, detailed, etc. but the method is dry.In comparison, my counseling theories text was easy to read, informative, and interesting, and it didn't take self positive reinforcing to get me to read the whole thing. ...

Editorial Review

This clear and valuable book dispels a variety of myths about attention deficit disorder (ADD). Since both authors have ADD themselves, and both are successful medical professionals, perhaps there's no surprise that the two myths they attack most persistently are: Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Well Written
This book was suggested to me ater recently being diagnosed with ADHD. Anyone who has a brother, sister, child, mother or friend with ADHD should read this book. Because it is so well written it gives the reader real insight into how the ADHD mind intereprets and responds to everyday activities. Books like this one will help to dispell the myth that ADHD= "hyperactive, over drugged kids who refuse to pay attention" and "lazy, irresponsible adults looking for excuses".

5-0 out of 5 stars This should be required reading to get a prescription!!!
It's simple, any parent filling a prescription for any ADD medication for thier child should have to first read this book or any other written by Dr. Hallowell. My son was diagnosed 9 years ago and I knew I connected with him better than anyone else but I didn't know why. Since 1 year ago I was diagnosed I started to understand but until I read this book and a couple of others (I think I have close to 15 ADD books) and realized what A.D.D really is I didn't get it. I'm not sure someone who is not gifted with A.D.D will ever really get it but if they read more books like this one maybe they would at least understand a little more and minimize the damage created by trying to fit the child into their small world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
I never ever finish books and I read this in a few days.It describes me to a T.Not only is the subject matter interesting but the author is funny and the book is entertaining.I loved the cough drop syndrom story.The cough drop syndrom is totally my life.

5-0 out of 5 stars On track to losing weight
This journal starts with a Personal Goals page to record everything from calories, fat,& carbs to workout goals, to your measurements. You can also tape a before photo for extra motivation. I look at this daily to remember my goals. The remaing journal has 3 months of pages to record food. The pages are organized in an easy-to-follow layout. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner on the right side. Snacks, Vitamins, Physical Activity, Water & your Daily Totals on the Left side. It is easy to keep track of all your eating habits and go back over the days to see how you can improve your diet.I plan on buying another journal when this one fills up.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Tool
This is a great book to keep track of what I eat. I showed it to a friend of mine who is also a personal trainer. She thought it was a fantastic book to give to people who want to lose weight by seeing what it is that they are eating. It's really good for people who what to take the time out to see what their body is and isn't getting. I highly recommend the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thorough but flexible
When you decide it's time to get serious about taking an honest look at your food intake and activity level, you'll find DietMinder to be a thorough and flexible tool to help. Regardless of the food plan you're following (South Beach, Weight Watchers, Atkins, etc.) you have a tool that can track fat, carbs, protein, fiber, and overall calories, and has an extra row for any other nutrient you want to track as well. (I track sodium.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Content
Pema is very funny and personable. She cuts throught it and gets to the point with excellent real world examples. What she gives on this CD is something that you can use everyday. Her discussion on "Shenpa" was worh the price of the CD!

5-0 out of 5 stars Changing Your Perspective
Don't go into situations with specific expectations or you may end up frustrated and angry.The book helps you learn to roll with the punches.We find ourselves in such a rush and that puts extra pressure on ourselves (and the others around us).
5-0 out of 5 stars You Don't Have to be Buddhist to Get a Lot From This.
I found myself getting stuck in repetitiousthought patterns even after decades of meditation practice.This audio book is one of the best teachings I've ever heard and can apply to anyone with an open mind who is ready to find thekeys to get unstuck.I speak from my experience and the experience everyone I know who listens, to it.I hear things like "life altering changes"."Getting Unstuck" is awesome. Done with a good sense of humor and lots of down to earth wisdom,Pema Chodron has outdone herself with this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bringing the message home
This is a book you will want to share with colleagues, patients, family and friends if you are in an integrative medicine healing practice. Those that "get" what you are doing will love it for its clear description of our vision. Those that don't "get" what you are doing, may very well after reading this extremely well written, passionate story. Matthew understands that yoga goes far beyond his personal experience or any story for that matter. He uses his story to share how yoga is indeed a "waking" of the human consciousness and a responsiblity for us all. His use of humor, irony and candor make for an engaging, personal experience while pushing the reader to look beyond their personal limits.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Connection of Mind and Body
This memoir was a fabulous read.I couldn't put it down once I started.Matthew's story of his accident and recovery was heartbreaking, but the inspiration he provides for all of us gives ushope that we toocan overcome the obstacles we face in our ownlives. We do not stand apart from Matthew, but we walk with him, all of us.I feel that Matthew does not what us to feel sorry for him, but to learn from him that we all can be whole, healthy and live productive lives.I was amazed by his insights and the poetic elegance of his writing.This author will go far.Read it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Waking, by Matthew Sanford
This was an awesome book.A great story for anyone really, but very helpful as well to those in the medical or alternative health care field, as I am a massage therapist. I found the linking of trauma and injury with the body very helpful in understanding clients and even my own limitations or prior injuries, it proves that your muscles do remember and even have flashbacks to trauma incurred to the body.I was totally inspired by Matthew and all he went through and accomplished during his journey back to health and Im so grateful that he shared it with us. It is also a good book for anyone experiencing aging in their bodies to read as well, lots of helpful insight for all of us as we start to disconnect from our bodies because of limitations or injury or age.Very inspiring and uplifting and hopeful. ...
