Toxic Work: How to Overcome Stress, Overload, and Burnout and Revitalize Your Career - book cover picture

Toxic Work is a wonderful resource. I have used the book as a required text for both my graduate level Managment Training and Development and Human Resource Management courses. My students, without exception, rave about the content. Dr. Reinhold's humor and insight have provided me and over 100 of my students with a great set of career problem solving tools and a teriffic bibliography. I keep hoping that there will be a sequel ... perhaps Toxic Two. Keep them comming.

A wonderful classic!!

The Hobbit - book cover picture

Reading through the reviews, I was really quite surprised to read the opinions of those people that thought this to be a horrible book. It is a true classic that I have read several times and I will probably read it again and again until the book falls apart. It is easy to read and the characters are well developed. Those who think that it has way to many details or say it is to complicated should really go back to reading their Dr.Suess books. But for those of you who are at least slightly intellectual and like fanatsies, this is a must read!

At once a humorous tragedy and a tragic comedy

Rating: 5/5

The Guide : A Novel (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) - book cover picture

This book is a first-person account of a charmingly neurotic character, whose materialism, protectiveness, and dishonesty lead him to success as often as they get him into trouble. His fortunes rise and fall as a shopkeeper, a tour guide, a lover, and ultimately an unwilling saint. He even finds success and happiness in prison, where his charisma leads him to build many friendships amongst fellow prisoners and security staff alike.

This book successfully treads the narrow space between tragedy and comedy, bringing lightness to an otherwise heavy theme.

Talking to Heaven : A Medium's Message of Life After Death (AUDIO CASSETTE) - book cover picture

I was at a very low point in my life when I went to J. Van Prague's lecture. After attending I bought the book and reading it changed my life. I became a new person. No more insecurities, depression, etc. Most of my problems completely disappeared over night. I found an excellent medium who contacted my deceased grandmother. Grandmother spoke to me as if she were still living. Everything she said made perfect since. I am so happy to know that she is watching me and helping. I hope that someday I will be able to contact her on my own, although since reading Talking to Heaven and getting in touch with her, she has sent various messages randomly - happens when least expected (alarm going off on old antique alarm clock that hasn't worked in two years. ) (she had the same alarm clock.) I am going to read "Talking to Heaven" again. It really did lift my spirits and made me feel great. I can't wait to read his other books as well.

A chilling story of the darkness of the collective system

Book title: Darkness at Noon
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Darkness at Noon - book cover picture

This is the book which Communist apologists dread - a chilling and all together dark tale of totalitarian governments in the name of the people. Whether it be Russia of the1930's, China of the late 40's, Cuba in 1959 or Cambodia in the mid 1970's, Koestler succeeds at the depiction of the sacrifice of the individual for the good of "the movement", and the "good of the movement", which is always in the name of "the people". The book also succeeds in depicting the fallacies of the blind following of the all-knowing "Number 1". It is almost a companion piece to anyone reading the Ayn Rand novels "We the Living" or "Atlas Shrugged". All of a sudden, Ms. Rand doesn't sound so far "out there".A terrific book and must read for those who still see any legitimacy in the big red monster.

I was on the job market and just felt that I was doing something wrong. I'm a professional, a supervisor, and just couldn't figure out where I was stumbling. This book changed all of that. It opened my eyes, showed me hidden strengths, and got me the job offer I wanted -- for a higher salary than I had expected.Many books tell you what to say during different situations. This book works because it helps you determine your unique strengths and how to best present them to potential employers. It's a quick read, too. I've recommended it to all my job hunting friends, from novice to experienced.Don't even think twice. Get this book.

A Life Changer

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Drinking : A Love Story - book cover picture

Now three years sober, I come back to this book again and again for its fresh perspective and dead-on descriptions of addiction from the standpoint of a "high functioning" alcoholic; i.e., one who is able to achieve considerable professional success while her alcoholism escalates. The author writes with a clear-eyed but lyrical style that illuminates her drinking life without romanticizing it, and ends with the hard-earned hope--but not the guarantee--of permanent sobriety. If you have any questions whatsoever as to whether you drink too much--especially if you are a aharp, single, successful woman who "has it all together"--I urge you to buy this book. At the very least, you will be rewarded with an absorbing read and you might find that it is a catalyst for a change in your own life. In the same vein, if you are worried for a friend who drinks too much and you can not confront her, slip her a copy of this book. It might save her life.

A Comprehensive Overview -- at least!

Human Change Processes: The Scientific Foundations of Psychotherapy - book cover picture

Mahoney has written a comprehensive overview of the cognitive revolution in psychology -- at the very least. He provides clear timelines of philosophical, theoretical, and empirical events that put this complex history in clear context. The writing is "thick" while managing to be accessible to even a beginner (if highly motivated) who is trying to make sense of the complexities of the field of cognitive psychology. He goes on to develop a rationale for the development of what is now known as cognitive constructivism -- of which he is a seminal thinker. His rationale and theory development are logical, well constructed, heavily referenced, and inspired. After laying the historical, theoretical, and empirical groundwork, Mahoney provides examples of how this theory is applied to clinical practice. This work is a gem. It is truly worth the energy and investment necessary to read and absorb it.

Gal: A True Life - book cover picture

From the moment I picked up the book, I could scarcely tolerate even minor interruptions while I read it from cover to cover within the span of four hours! Since then, I have purchased the book for several female friends, with instructions that it must be passed on to other favorite sisters as a special treat. Contained within its pages are accurate (and timely) examples of love, greed, envy, lust, power, and worship of the money god. This book was so true-to-life, I felt I knew each character personally. I urge women everywhere to experience the rollercoaster ride through the life of Ruthie Bolton, because it will be an experience they'll never forget!
