The Student Manual is a timeless self-development book designed to help students (also written by a student) to discover more of their potential and learn life skills with its short, fluff-free and enlightening format.

This modular book enables you to read what you want, when you want, and the BS-free, easy-to-read content avoids any dreaded walls of text or useless fluff.

Four primary sections of health, relationships, wealth and skills each provide fundamental principles to succeed in those areas – you don’t need a book for each.

MY THOUGHTS:
THE STUDENT MANUAL A GUIDE TO SUCCESS by Nicholas Goodall is an educational Teacher Resource/Educational/ Self-Help.
A great resource for college students, or high-school students to help build confidence, good study habits, and positive attitude. A great resource for relationships, health, wealth, and skills. Filled with advice, and self-help information. Well written, easy to follow.

This book is a must-have for anyone seeking to expand their knowledge of natural health and mind/body medicine, written in an easy to understand and informative way. The Alternative Medicine Cabinet covers a wide range of modalities such as massage techniques, homeopathics and Bach Flower Essences, and also provides natural solutions for common ailments like stress, back pain, sleep issues, and more serious conditions such as depression and cancer.

MY THOUGHTS:
THE ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE CABINET: HUNDREDS OF WAYS TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR HEALTH. NATURALLY. by KATHY GRUVER,PHD,LMT,RM, NHC  (2nd Edition)is an interesting Alternative Medicine/Nutrition/Health. What a wonderful guide to better health naturally. A great quick guide to Homeopathy,herbs,healing,belief and so much more. While not intended to diagnose or prescribe in any way it is an excellent source of information. I enjoyed the 10 quick health tips and the obesity and natural health. I was fasnicated by the fact that soda, neither diet nor regular have any nutritional value except to help you gain weight. There have been studies to the “correclations between high fructose corn syrup(found in non-diet soda and many processed foods)  and weight gain in the US.” A very educational book and one I intend to look back on often. Well researched and well written. Easy to read and follow. I would highly recommend this title if you are interested in natural health, supplemental health and wellness. Also, if you are looking for a quick resource, this is the title for you to pick up and read. A wonderful guide to better health. Received for an honest review from the author.

MY THOUGHTS:

STICKY ICKY BOOGER BUGS by Sherry Frith,illustrated by Carol Newell Walter is a charming Children’s Picture Book/Cystic Fibrosis. Age range: 0-7.  A charming and educational tale of a young boy, Kory, who battles Cystic Fibrosis. This lively story is based on the author’s own struggles to help her boys better understand their disease, and cope with the their battle to keep the sticky icky boogers away. What an amazing tale, which beautifully explains for young children and parents alike how to better understand the terms, their struggles, and their never ending battle with Cystic Fibrosis. While, at this time there is no cure for this progressive disease, there are ways to help avoid the hospital, and live a more fulfilling life as they battle the sticky icky booger bugs. I would highly recommend this title to not only parents, children, but to educators as well as health care providers. What a wonderful way to help children better understand their disease. As a retired health care provider who worked with children with Cystic Fibrosis, I wished this title was available when I was working. A great read aloud! Oh, I forgot to mention the delightful illustrations. Educational as well as entertaining! Well done, Ms. Frith!! I absolutely loved it and can not say enough about this title!! A must for any and all health care providers, educators, parents,children, and grand-parents and anyone else who wishes to learn more on Cystic Fibrosis.

*Amazon*

Cookin’ for Cures is a cook book with a big difference. It helps people learn how to use the aloe vera they have in their garden in drinks and food to gain great health. At the age of eleven my dog was very sick with liver cancer and bad arthritis. So I syringed aloe vera into her mouth three times a day. In six months her cancer was gone, and in twelve months her arthritis was gone too. She is now nearly seventeen years old and very healthy. I tried drinking it myself and in six months my arthritis was also gone, so was my cold sores (I used to get them three or four times a year). My eczema was also a distant memory it has been six years and still no sign of the arthritis, cold sores or eczema. There are many testimonials in the book of people that were not given much hope by their doctors but after trying this they are now 100% healthy. But there are many things that we need to know about this plant like which type, as there are 400 species. How old should the plant be? Or how do you get the bitter taste out of it? After fifteen years of research on this plant I have learnt many things to make it easy for others to use to gain great health. There is a video of my dog Maxine on my web site if you would like to see how I administer the aloe vera to her.www.angiessmartbooks.com

 

MY THOUGHTS:

COOKIN’ FOR CURES: OVER 100 ALOE VERA BASED RECIPES by Angie Andrews is an exciting Nutrition/Aloe Vera Plants/Health/Education based on uses of the Aloe Vera plant. Packed full of information, how-to,and recipes. From drinks & smoothies, to doggie treats you will not go wrong with this very educational tool. You knew Aloe Vera plants had so many uses? We all knew you could use it for burns, but did you know? You can use to for healing also….it has been used to help with arthritis, diabetes, cold sores,prevent sunburn,infected wounds,are just a few things it has proven to help. Oh yea and for animals also, such as dogs. The recipes sounds awesome! It has beautiful, full pages photographs of the recipes as well as easy to follow instructions. And you also have a Doggie treat recipe, how cool is that? I plan to try many of the recipes myself. A wonderful guide is also included on how to purchase and grow Aloe Vera. A great read!

Can speed be taught? The answer is YES! Kenneth Taylor, Speed Specialist and Chicago Bears Super Bowl Champion, will take you through an in-depth and unique approach to speed training. Whether you are age 10 or 60, Ken can help any athlete run faster than ever before. Using the power of 10,000, visualization techniques, psychological tricks, communication tips and the power of gravity, he will put an end to many myths of speed. Speed can be taught. And he will show you how. In addition to explaining the “Psychology of Speed”, Ken specializes in helping the athlete understand his or her genetic potential. He explains how it is not only important to be faster but to think while in motion as well as maximize control. He uses very unique communication techniques to help athletes learn “what, where and when” to move for speed, as well as for each sport. Through years of studies, Ken also describes the negative effects of bad coaching and the positive effects of being able to run fast for any sport. He explains the spiraling chain reaction of positive self-confidence and gives specific examples of how speed can change an athlete’s life – sometimes in unimaginable ways.

MY THOUGHTS:

YOU CAN’T JUST TEACH THAT!: OR CAN YOU? by Kenneth D. Taylor is an interesting Sports/Coaching/Training. An interesting book intended to help teach young athletes speed in sports. According to the author with speed comes confidence. It is filled with tips on conditioning,and the holistic approach to speed training plus many more approaches. The author explains the “Psychology of Speed”, the muscle physiology and movement of bio- mechanics for young athletes. A useful tool for educators and parents alike.

And that s when this foursome redefines the meaning of compassion.

Book Description(From Amazon)

Publication Date: December 29, 2012
Ladies…Imagine being able to lose all the weight you wanted and still eat all your favorite foods! The Calorie Confusion® system makes this a reality!

Calorie Confusion® is completely different than any other weight loss programs on the market. “Reaching Your Goal Step-by-Step” was specifically created for women who have yo-yo dieted for years and want a real and permanent weight loss solution.

It takes you by the hand each and every week, and tells you exactly what you need to do that week to lose weight.

Not only does it tell you exactly what you need to do to lose weight each week, but it also gives helpful advice on the many issues that normally sabotage a woman’s weight loss.

What women need to realize is that it is not their fault that they haven’t lost weight. Almost every “diet” on the market is a short term (at best) solution.

Most weight loss programs don’t teach you how to enjoy eating your favorite foods in a way that you can lose weight and sustain the weight loss for life.

If you’re a woman who has struggled with yo-yo dieting for years and you’re ready to get your life back and lose weight once-and-for-all, then this book is for you.

Through my research I discovered “The Perfect Plan” that will allow you to eat the foods you love…With NO food restrictions, NO special food combinations, NO bland food substitutions and it is formulated in such a way that you avoid discouraging plateaus – so you will see results fast – each and every week.

The Calorie Confusion® system works for everyone, no matter your age, and can be easily incorporated into the busiest of lifestyles.

“Reaching Your Goal Step-by-Step” is a complete and comprehensive weight loss system that is full of advice and motivation…not fluff and filler.

MY THOUGHTS:

CALORIE CONFUSION, REACHING YOUR GOAL STEP-BY-STEP: Finally There Is Hope….A Weight Loss Solution That Is Simple And Life Changing by Pamela Miles is an interesting non-fiction/Health/Exercise/Diet book. What a educational tool for exercise and diet. Filled with motivation,advice,encouragement,using a food journal,calculating calorie intake and so much more. A must read for anyone who wants or needs to “lose weight”,exercise more and eat better. I enjoyed this book and intend to check out the “lose weight” part for I desperately need to “lose weight”,eat healthier,and exercise more. Received for an honest review from the author.
