    5-0 out of 5 stars You don't need a degree to be an expert
    This review is specifically in response to the comments of some reviewers who express contempt for Ms. Somer's proclaiming to have knowledge about the human body.
    4-0 out of 5 stars At Least She's Trying
    Suzanne has done the research, and I have already commented on this book, but because I mentioned other books, Amazon took it out.My friend Elsa commented also, and mentioned a better book-also removed.Hmm...But it's okay for "authors" to say they are authors and promote their books here.Anyway, I believe Somers has done the right thing in doing the research, the wrong thing in passing it off as "holistic".At least she is TRYING to understand her body instead of giving up control to a practicing person with initials after his name.

    1-0 out of 5 stars How dare she
    Suzanne Somers has crossed the line - from a sensible advocate of bioidentical hormones to an out-of-control MD-wannabe. Although she has interviewed numerous doctors for this book, she seems to have "drunk the Kool-Aid" when it comes to the crazy protocols recommended by her friend T.S. Wiley, who has zero medical credentials. Before any women buy into the Wiley Protocols outlined in this book, they should do some internet research and read about the women who have tried it and now bitterly regret it. Erika Schwartz MD was quoted in this week's New York Times as saying this book is "dangerous." She's dead right. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Efron Is Real
    As a university professor originally from New York City and definitely past the "baby Boomer" stage, I still found time to read Nora's essays and thoroughly enjoyed them."Sleepless in Seattle" and "You've Got Mail," are not "Hilarious" as so many people expect, but rather poignant portrayals of real-life human dilemmas presented in a lighter voice.Nora has been the one who can capture the rare moment within the chaos of reality, and her essays in the "neck" book do just that. This was obviously not meant to be the "book of the year," but a snapshot of the woman behind the captivating novels and films.The essays allow us to see that, she too, is aging with the rest of us, and it comes on all so quickly.I plan on gifting this book for the holidays, along with Gangi's "Forget The Cures, Find The Cause," and "Crazy Salad."The combination will help to get many minds and bodies on a better track.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A disappointment
    I ran to get a copy of Nora Ephron's newest book, as I always liked her work. I'm glad I didn't spend the money, and instead got it from the library. I expected a very funny book that would be filled with wisdom and wit. Instead I found a slightly funny book that lacked originality and really had nothing to say. It would be too harsh to call it self-indulgent, but in a way it was. So she had a rent-controlled apartment that she loved, so parenting has changed,and so she has to dye her hair (often). Yawn yawn.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas Gift
    We all need a little reminder about the little things that keep us going, especially when peppered with wisdom.Categorical separation is a problem, but this is one of those books you wrap up for Christmas to let your friends know you care.I'm giving it to many along with Nora Ephron's "Neck" book and Rayna Gangi's "Cures."

    5-0 out of 5 stars Kidder and Oppenheim emphasize revival of the mind and intellect.
    "The Intellectual Devotional: Revive Your Mind, Complete Your Education, and Roam Confidently With the Cultured Class" is an interesting book in which the writers, David S. Kidder and Noah D. Oppenheim, emphasize the concept of mind revitalization. The book devotes itself to 365 lessons spanning a variety of disciplines, from mathematics to history to religion, the goal of which is to assist readers in reviving both their minds and knowledge on facts that are easily forgotten, among them the function of batteries and events in history. The writers provide some excellent advice devoted to assisting readers with freeing their minds from the troubles of their days, which consequently plays a fundamental role in allowing them to sleep better. ...

    First I must say that I am not a fan of Dr. Phil so I know very little of this author's reputation. (I not an 'anti-fan' of Dr. Phil either, just not big on TV)
    4-0 out of 5 stars Not sure about this one
    I think that this book is a good teaching tool for all these parents who want to prepare their children to score high in the IQ test. But when you think of that carefully, doesn't this defeat the idea of your intelligence being measurable by IQ tests? If you can improve the score by preparing yourself to the test that means that the test does not really measure your intelligence, but only your ability to score high on the test. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Textbook on Human Communication
    I am a huge fan of Daniel Goleman.He's the bestselling author who coined the term "Emotional Intelligence" with his 1995 book of the same name.Now he's got a new book, "Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships."Social intelligence is the ability to read other people's cues and then act on them.Life is all about relationships, and there is a science to how we relate to each other.It's fascinating to see how Goleman breaks down each aspect of communication.We can learn how to more effectively express ourselves so that we feel understood.And we can learn how to better "read" other people so that we can better understand.This helps to improve our interactions and ultimately strengthen our relationships.He talks about "synchrony" or interacting smoothly at the nonverbal level, which is an important, yet often overlooked, part of relating.Goleman also scientifically explains "the capacity for joy" and how that affects our social intelligence.He shows how our resilience plays an important role in our happiness, which comes into play as we express ourselves to others.

    5-0 out of 5 stars From Training the Mind to Training the Heart
    Simply put Social Intelligence is the recognition of one's own ignorance and faithful dedication to one's principles. Every day and specilally during our Meirc Training programs in dubai I meet professionals with very high IQ and very low social IQ. Social Intelligence shows why it's important to have both. It's filled with wonderful examples that show what social intelligence is and how to develop it. This book is recommended reading for any leader and any coach and will be my recommended reading for all trainees in particular the intelligent people attending NLP training.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A FRESH LOOK AT OUR WORLD THRU AN EMERGING NEW SCIENCE!
    Five AMAZING Stars!! Welcome to the brave new world of "Social Neuroscience"! This book may change the way you see life, relationships, and how you approach both! In "Social Intelligence", the companion volume to the highly successful and informative "Emotional Intelligence", award-winning author Dr. Daniel Goleman examines the emerging science of Social Neuroscience and reveals it's most basic concept: "we are wired to connect" with each other. Our brains are "sociable" and interact, from the basic one-to-one relationship to those relationships much more complex and layered. He then tells us specifically how this happens in our everyday lives. From the bedroom to the boardroom to recreational activities and beyond, it's always there affecting us. Even more importantly, the book shows how the direct one-on-one neural bridge between two people emotionally affects the brain of the other person. That emphasis is how this book differs from "Emotional Intelligence" which dealt with what happens within the individual. Each individual social interaction becomes a mental thermostat, affecting both specific parts of the brain and individual emotional functions with each changing situation. Each new situation will "reset key aspects of our brain function as they orchestrate our emotions" each time. While each discussion gets technical, Dr. Goleman gives specific simple examples of everyday occurrences that we all can recognize and which reinforces his points.

    I couldn't put it down. This book has everything you need to improve your life and the lives of the people around you. I've read other self-help books but they were never very helpful. After reading this one I was completely inspired. Last night I signed up to volunteer in my community! From now on I am definitely going to live from me to we.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Save yourself the anxiety
    I won't recommend this book.The authors spend too much time listing things that have not been shown to impact a pregnancy and labeling them as "BAD".I spent my pregnancy worrying about things that in retrospect were silly (is decaf green tea really going to give me a mutated baby).It had a tendency to suggest the worst was going to happen - I didn't even finish it.I usually love to read about what is going on and find out what to expect.I even read sections of an embryology textbook.But I had my husband read the section on delivery and births, because I knew reading it myself would make things worse not better.While the other books in this series are extremely helpful, this title is not - DON'T GET IT!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Expect an amazing book
    If your reading this review, stop and just buy the book.Especially new parents!The truth is we don't really know what to expect, and life is so much easier when we at least have a glimpse of the future.It quite possibly might be one of the best things I have ever bought my wife (and I have bought her plenty of expensive gifts).Dads buy this for your wives, moms buy this for yourself.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Good, sensible, non-judgemental advice and information
    After reading some of the reviews for this book, I decided to buy another at the same time in case I disliked it as others had. (That other book was "The Mother of all Pregnancy Books" by Ann Douglas). This is my first pregnancy so I'm hungry for knowledge, so I began reading both books simultaneously... I have now rejected the other and am sticking with WTEWYE.

    2-0 out of 5 stars This guy needs an editor
    I got this book after reading so many great reviews of how it helped people quit. Well, I have no idea how they even got through this waste of paper. At first I thought it was just me, not paying attention to where I left off, but then I saw that some pages were exactly the same, word for word.How many times can you tell someone smoking is disgusting and you don't need willpower to quit? Apparently many. The repetition in this book made me so angry at the poor quality, I wanted to smoke more. This guy is a joke- He quit smoking through hypnosis and now he thinks he knows all the secrets? Um, no. He is just trying to make money (and apparently its working) off people willing to try any way to quit.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I quit smoking a year ago today...
    ...without the use of sticky patches, gross and nauseating and heart-burninducing gums, tampon-applicator-resembling inhalors, therapy, drugs, hypnosis, herbal remedies, or the like.In fact, when I bought my last pack of cigarettes was when I stopped spending money completely on smoking or anything related to it.I had smoked since I was 14 and by the time I was 25, it held no pleasure.It was something that had to be done, a monster to be fed.The one thing I liked about this book initially was that it promised me I could quit smoking by simply not smoking and nothing more and that I was not a weak addict who needed further crutches to compensate for not smoking.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Stop being a slave - this book will free you.
    This book will reveal the truth to you about smoking and your addiction to it with out scare tactics or guilt. After 33 years of being a slave to cigarettes this book gave me the mental weapons I needed to break my addiction. It is not the physical addiction that causes us pain - it is the mental one. After reading this book you will have the tools you need to become a non-smoker. If you want to quit.. get this book and just read it with an open mind. Do it! ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Doctor's Jokes Don't Work
    Yes, I understand that Doctors believe the human body is SO complex that they feel they have to add little elves, sex jokes, and personal, inside humor to make the book readable; However, you can do basic education and keep people reading by not mystifying.I personally took offense at some of the body labels and the condescending way this book approaches the body. I've read several books similar to this, all in an effort to keep my 65 year old body young, and to protect my children from disease.I found Rayna Gangi's Book, and Andrew Weil's books to be much more respectful, and hence, more informative and readable.These guys are capitalizing on the YOU premise, and obviously laughing and joking all the way to the bank.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I could personally thank the authors
    I also bought the RealAge makeover book.I highly recommend that if you enjoyed this book.It has even more details, IMO.I am following the workout plan in that book and have been for the last 48 days.I feel fantastic.I also got my multivitamins based on their recommendations.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Yes - Basic - But Thats What The General Population Still Needs
    As a Fitness Pro and Lifestyle Consultant - it is clear the general population still lacks knowledge of the basics. While a good number of reviews state this book is not a good one because it only covers the basics - I disagree.

    I think deep thinking people tend to be unhappy because they're not living life.They're idealizing and rationalizing life.Some of the concepts here may be good, but reading this book will leave you feeling empty, even if you agree.It's better to spend the time living your life than reading these kinds of deep books.

    The more you read this book and go deeper into the principles of Covey the more you discover yourself and others. For many people reading Covey's book or listening to him speak literally changes their lives. This is a powerful and effective recipe for success indeed and highly recommended for people in training.

    This book is an exceptionally well thought, intellectual work.

    When I read "Crucial Conversations" I found myself tearing through it in long spurts, driven by an intense interest in the authors' discussion of how we handle those tough circumstances life throws our way.

    I am a pharmacist who is also very interested in how diet and exercise maintain people's health.Michael Pollan's book was an incredible eye-opener.I first heard him interviewed on Science Friday on NPR news (podcast) and decided to read his book.It is an extremely well researched book with an entire source list in the back.It is also very entertaining and easy to read.It is obvious he has a great sense of humor.His book encompasses the economics, politics, biology, ecology, and physiology regarding our current american diet.His book has surely changed the way I think about food and I was fairly well versed before I read his book.Now, I am a member of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and have been spreading the word! This is one of the best and most influential books I have ever read. Everyone should read it.Ignorance is not bliss.Just ask some of my pharmacy customers who have side effects from the medicines they take and have to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on those same medications.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My response to Vegan/Vegetarian horn-tutors
    I'm about halfway through this book (I've been kind of skipping around to various parts--which is how I usually read non-fiction books). Modern agriculture, factory farming, and where our food comes from are all subjects near and dear to my heart. These are topics that only people in the industry or professionally trained chefs (which I am) usually know and care about. I don't think veganism/vegetarianism is a good response (and I don't think it will fix anything). Instead, we need to be voicing our displeasure with our dollars.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Must Read for the Health Conscious
    The Omnivore's Dilemma is an exploration into the foods that are on our plates and why. The answers he delivers are at times frightening.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!
    Dale Carnegie is one of the authors I have admired for so long. There are numerous reasons why this book is a classic one. He deeply believes that in every person there is good and you can approach it. Of course, there are many negative people who don't like this book because they see everything in black and white. Carnegie on the other side advocates a really delicate, positive and humane approach to everyone around you. It comes very close to "treat the others as you want them to treat you". I am sure that if everyone read and apply the principles in this wonderful book, the world will be a better place. I am sure that you will be pleased as well with his talent to really understand what drives people. Some of the key and basic motivators he discussed are sex and being important. His viewpoint is very close to the one of the bestselling author of scientfically guaranteed male multiple orgasms and ultimate sex. After all genius things are usually simple. Carnegie explores the human nature and common hot buttons together with the reader and gives you tools to manage and push them at your will with the help of numerous examples. I liked that the book is practical, easy and fun to read, and most of all that it delivers great value. I can not say the same for many other books. Definitely get a copy especially if you are a "good" person and prefer to treat people with respect and dignity.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If only...
    If everyone in the world read this book just once, it would be such a more enjoyable place to live in...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Classic of Self Help Genre
    This book may be the one that Created the genre.And what was true then is just as true today.One of the loveliest parts about this book are the stories and anecdotes from the time when it was written.It was a simpler time back then.And the people faced such different dilemas than we do today.Yet, the more things change, the more things stay the same.The humanity of this books comes through loud and clear. ...

    Since all actions are preceded by thoughts, Don Miguel Ruiz explores, quite eloquently, why every dream has a significant impact upon our actions. I recommend this book for anyone with a vision.

    4-0 out of 5 stars On day 5 of Phase I
    I started on Monday.After two days of bad headaches I did drink decaf (one cup a day) and my headache instantly went away.I figured if I can't drink my wine every night, I'll compromise with the decaf as I'm not putting any creamer or sugar, just sugar substitute in it.I too wish he listed more vegetables.Can you have sugar free snacks?
    3-0 out of 5 stars good plan, flimsy read.
    I read a lot of reviews stating that Dr. Ian's book lacks a lot of the scientific data to support his diet. I decided to give it a chance anyway--and the reviewers were right. The plan seems pretty good, even if a little rough in the beginning. I like the variety of foods you can eat and also the fact that he acknowledges the importance of exercise.
    5-0 out of 5 stars OK Lets See
    Today is my first day of the Phase 1 detox....whew it takes willpower and discipline; something you need if you are going to attempt to lose weight using any plan!Some of the reviews I have read about the book don't seem accurate to me, but we see things through differently.I see this as a way to get rid of unhealthy eating habits, make a change and then incorporate some of the foods that aren't so good for me in moderation, not every day!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sometimes you get to revisit
    Years ago I worked with a lot of this material, and a lot of other material, most of it was good.My father died this last winter and stuff started shifting around a bit and at any rate it became apparent that some of what was getting in my way was codependence.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great reference of psychiatric illnesses
    I think this book will be a pretty good resource for anyone searching for information regarding sleep disorders and mood swings. It will also teach anyone new to psychiatrics valuable information on dementia, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc. as well as diagnoses associated with the illnesses.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The closest thing to Diagnostic Guidelines in Psychiatry
    This is the full manual that you need to at least be in the ballpark on a diagnosis to help treat your patients with reasonable certainty.With Diagnosis, there is prognosis...and with this book, you can give a patient some relatively confident answers about what they are experiencing.One disadvantage to this full text is that it is large, and there is a lot of verbage. The scaled down desk version or the pocket guide to the DSM IV that you may want to have on rounds.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Still "The" Text We All Know About
    DSM will remain as the bible of psychiatry. Despite its shortcomings, DSM has made it possible for clinicians to talk more objectively about psychiatric illnesses. Now more than ever, people around the globe can actually understand what 'schizophrenia' or 'bipolar disorder' really is. So if you're a trainee or a practising clinician, devour it, master it, enjoy it, and use it. But don't take the criteria too literally. Highly recommended! ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars nothing simple about it
    Once again we are being duped with the misleading description "simple". This book has what are probably very good diet/lifestyle adjustments to help you lose weight and detoxify our systems. Dr. Hyman is no doubt sincere and has clearly done his homework but to imply that this is a "Simple" program is "simply" not true. The first half of the book explains how our modern diet is poisoning our systems and causing us to gain weight ad nauseum. We get it. Why can't one of the diet Gurus come up with an eating plan that relies on foods that are both readily available in your average grocery store or produce stand instead of the stuff stocked by specialty stores and health food stores. Where does the average consumer locate "grass fed beef" and "free range chicken" on the way home from the office? Dr. Hyman this is partially why obesity is such a problem, most people in the real world don't have the time, or resources to track down all these things and they simply give up. Anyone could write a diet book with the assumption that we all have access and the ability to provide ourselves with the products you describe and suggest. It is simply lazy science to recommend these things. Want to impress us? Go into a typical grocery store with a typical budget and show us the shopping list.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Surprised by negative comments
    I have read this book twice, once to just read it, twice to go back through and underline things I never wanted to forget, and now I am reading it again to get ready to put it into action.I am on the E-mail list for this doctor sending case studies of people that he has helped.I must say I am very impressed and wish all doctors could be like Dr. Hyman. He looks at the whole body to find the reasons for sickness. I am surprised by the reviews here that say this is the same old information we have heard before.I have read a lot of diet books and I learned so much in this book about other things that can effect your weight besides eating right and exercise. And if I had heard of something before, now it was explained in a way that I could understand. I felt good that a few things that I had started to believe where confirmed in this book.When trying to get to the bottom of why I am over weight, this very nice to have my thoughts validated.There was a couple reviews that sounded like the person had not even read the book.One said they expected to find out more about the glycemic index, saying they were felt cheated that there was no information, when in reality the theory of the glycemic index is out dated.We now need to pay attention to the glycemic "load" of what we are eating.If they had read the book they would have known that. Another person said that it is a vegetarian diet, which it is not. Just look at the recipes in the back of the book to know that. Please don't right a review if you have not read the book.

    I have long been a proponent of encouragement as a means to build healthy, strong relationships and promote growth. This book offers a concrete plan for making that happen.
