The Happiness Animal
The Happiness Animal

Review: The Happiness Animal goes into depth on how to be happy with theoritical scenarios, exercises, famous quotes, and the author's real life experiences. It goes on to say how someone wears a superficial mask in order to become more like the person they think they should be, not the person that they want to be. It also goes into detail about tolerance, forgiveness, pride vs self-esteem, and anger. This book is good for someone looking for happiness internally as opposed to externally. The author put...

9 Powerful Ways for Self-Improvement - & Gaining Positive Energy
9 Powerful Ways for Self-Improvement - & Gaining Positive Energy

Review: One thing that is sure about this is that it was written with heart and soul. Apart from the fact that the author really absorbs himself into his writing, it is clear that he knows something about becoming loving and open minded. I must warn you, for those that prefer to stay away from religion, there is some referencing of the Bible and Christianity. I however, was totally fine with that. In any case, the book was written warmth will benefit the many of you. It does have great points. Read more

127 Small Changes to Improve Your Health - and Happiness
127 Small Changes to Improve Your Health - and Happiness

Review: I had to read this book 3 1/2 to 4 times before I felt that I was improving my life any. Others reviewers said they were already familiar with habit stacking. I was not. Although I soon realized that there were some habit stacks that I was doing automatically without calling them anything--like First Things in the Morning Stack and Last Things in the Evening Stack. After the first read, I began writing down procedures. Then I deleted them all because I had the sense that I was spending more... Read more

Win the Inner War & Let Your Art Shine - The Heart To Start

Review: Excellent guidance on how to overcome the sometimes invisible psychological barriers that prevent people from starting a project and/or pursuing a goal. Mental traps like the "Fortress Fallacy" and perfectionism are insidious not only in their ability to prevent people from pursuing a goal, but also in their ability to erode confidence over time until so much avoidance turns to a life of regret. The author shows readers how these barriers convincingly give us reasons to avoid projects/goals we w... Read more

The book provides a general description of the pleasant sensation described as "Flow."

Trauma Or Toxic Shaming Must Know To Have Peace In Their Lives
Trauma Or Toxic Shaming Must Know To Have Peace In Their Lives

Review: It's nice to read a self-help book from a writer who has been in the trenches. She describes co-dependency from the perspective of someone who's experienced it first hand, and her hard-won wisdom shines through. I read with a pen in hand and barely a page went by where I didn't underline a passage or scribble something in the margins. She describes the workings of the co-dependent mind very well. There were so many passages where I thought, "Wow, and I thought I was the only person who thought t... Read more

How to Become the Alpha Male Women Respect - and Want to Submit To

Review: With enthusiasm I began reading this book. Immediately I soaked in all the information and began applying it in my daily life while interacting with the opposite sex and with the same sex.

A Revolutionary Way to Influence and Persuade
A Revolutionary Way to Influence and Persuade

Review: In his now-classic "Influence", Robert Cialdini tagged along with vacuum salesmen, car dealers and other persuasion professionals to come up with the six psychological principles that were "deployed routinely in long-prospering influence businesses" -- reciprocation, liking, social proof, authority, scarcity, and consistency. Those principles are still solid gold. Prof Cialdini once again gets his hands dirty to uncover an even deeper level of influence: how to make compliance almost a foregone ... Read more
