This book is a practical guide to learning to love difficult people in your life. The author shares her personal experiences, which thankfully are different than mine, but the advice is practical for any situation and it was nice to read something I could relate to. Even if you don't have difficult in-laws, this book is full of good advice on making the most of your relationship with your daughter-in-law or mother-in-law.

This book is a must read for anyone who is in a relationship! The information is practical, useful, and applicable to the real world. The author does not lecture or talk down to the reader, rather she encourages and guides in an easy to read format. There are practical solutions that can be easily applied to any relationship, with real results. There are also quizzes and exercises spread throughout the book that can really help you practice what you're learning. I'm about to get married, and I am SO GLAD I found this book! I have recommended it to EVERY one of my friends.

A practical guide to cooking, well, everything! Unlike Joy of Cooking (which I also own), this book is less complicated and boils down basic cooking techniques to their essence. It is inspiring to use because of its elegant simplicity - in the first week I made homemade mayonnaise and fresh shortcake biscuits, 2 items I had never tried. This book focuses on making the basics accessible and encourages the reader to expand beyond that. Great addition.

The quality of the product has to do in this case with the author, and the author wrote it perfectly well.

While this guide is great, jam-packed with instruction and practice problems, the problem I've found is after taking the practice tests and having a list of incorrect problems, I was often at a roadblock. I didn't know how to fix my problems and I didn't have the $$$ for a tutor or after school program. I was lucky to have found ShowMeSAT.com, a free, online supplement to the College Board book that every student should use. On the site, tutors provide step-by-step video explanations for almost every problem in the book. So say you're stumped on question 2 of section 3 of practice test 2, you can simply find the corresponding question on the site, fix and learn your mistake. www.*****

As an amplifier technician and builder of tube guitar amps, I found this book to be the best technical tube amp guide available. It's easy to read and includes an amazing amount of tips and practical information on amp maintenance and construction. Gerald Weber bases this information on many years as a professional amp builder (Kendricks Amps). I've applied many of these tips to my own amp projects resulting in some of the best tube amp sounds I've ever heard. This book is a must have for both novice and professional amp enthusiasts.

What a find! Natalie Diaz offers tons of advice- so much of what I needed to hear. But this is not just advice as in "you MUST do this and you MUST do that". After reading other parent to be manuals I notice everyone has their own strong opinion and I was confused more so than relieved to read other books. What to do? Who is right? Who is wrong? But FINALLY here is an author who recognizes not all families are the same....and I enjoyed reading her thoughts, advice and practical idea's. I was not intimidated. I read the book and felt more confident in the sense that not all problems have just one solution! And what a breath of fresh air to read and also laugh as Mrs. Diaz has a way with words that made me smile more than once! She is knowledgeable AND hilarious- a WIN WIN! The book is already at my bedside as I can foresee myself picking it up daily..lucky to have this guide as my ' go to'. Having twins can be a stressful and scary experience! Here is someone who knows this, survived it and lives to tell the tale. And she wants ME to know all will be ok. There is help if I need it. I know what help to ask for. I can handle any and all situations that come my way. I can DO IT! I felt like I made a friend after reading the book....an EXRIODINARY friend who has a clear point of view and gives advice I trust. "What to Do When You're Having Two: The Twins Survival Guide from Pregnancy Through the First Year" is a GOLD MINE of information...but my only question I have now is what happens after the first year! Natalie Diaz? If you are out there? How about what to do after the 1st year till the kids are at least 18? LOL! I can't wait to be able to buy your next book. I need your priceless HOW TO'S to continue!

Newborn gifts range from the useful and practical to the whimsical and luxurious. When selecting a baby gift for a newborn, you may be wondering how to choose something unique that won't be like all the other presents at a baby shower. To find the best newborn baby gift, consider what you know about the baby and the lifestyle of the parents and consider gifts that the parents truly want. Toys. Baby toys always make good gifts for newborns. Even if the toys won't be played with right away, parents can use them to provide stimulatory experiences and items such as rattles, stuffed animals, soft blocks and musical mobiles all provide the developing baby with learning opportunities. Books. Children can never have too many books. Reading to and with a little one can help them develop language skills and imaginative qualities. Many parents start reading to baby from day one and find that it is a valuable bonding experience. Any baby book with a simple, clean layout, contrasting visuals and short, straightforward text makes a good choice. Look for touch-and-feel books, pop-up books and books with mirrors, which are all fun for babies. Blankets. Keep baby warm and comfortable with a soft blanket. A luxury blanket made of cashmere or silk can be a nice change from other gifts and will probably become a family treasure. Blankets that have been embroidered with the baby's name or initials are also a unique newborn baby gift. Baby blankets that have been folded into the shape of a cake or other decorative item are fun to give on their own or as part of a gift basket. Larger items. Many parents find that they simply can't afford to purchase all of the baby gear that they really want. If you are looking for a newborn baby gift that will impress, then you might consider purchasing a larger item, such as a swing, a rocking chair or a video baby monitor. Surprise the mom-to-be in your group of friends with something she has been wanting by gifting something expensive with several other people.

There are many educational toys and games that help children learn better listening skills. Children often have difficulty developing good listening skills, and by playing educational games with your children, you can bond with them and guide their learning. Many electronic learning and educational toys encourage independent learning while still focusing on listening comprehension. By using the numerous educational games and toys available focused on listening skills, children can learn while having fun. Board games: Board games require kids to listen to a set of rules. To play, they must retain the rules they just heard. Instead of letting the kid read the rules, read the rules to them. Have them repeat the rules back. The practice of repeating and using the rules they've learned helps reinforce their ability to listen and remember. Video games: Age-appropriate educational video games work similar to videos, music and other auditory games. These games can be played alone or with others. Video games can be played on most game consoles, on computers and through many websites. To complete game tasks, kids must listen to and remember instructions. Auditory games: Games such as "Simon Says" or "Bingo" require kids to listen in order to play. If they don't listen, they can't perform tasks correctly. Children like to win games, and games that focus on another player stating steps or have an audio component to state tasks and steps will encourage kids to improve their listening skills. Play these games with your child to help make the games more fun. Books: Books can be turned into games. Read a book to a child and ask questions afterward. For every correct answer, provide some type of award. If reading to a group, turn the questions into a group game. Many books focus solely on improving listening skills, such as riddle books which require kids to listen to and remember all details before they can solve the riddle. Other books include guessing games such as "20 Questions." To guess the answer, kids must remember the answers to the 20 questions. Videos and music: Many movies, shows and songs are actually full of games. These games require children to listen carefully to perform the desired task. Typically, these tasks include saying a certain phrase or doing a certain dance or exercise move. These tasks build upon each other to develop kids' ability to remember what they've heard.

There are many educational toys available to help children with learning disabilities both enjoy learning and learn better. These learning and educational toys spark a child's interest and focus on specific learning needs. Parents and educators can use these educational toys to help children better overcome their learning obstacles. No matter what learning disability children may have, toys for learning are available to help them. Books: Educational books provide activities for all skill levels from preschool to high school. These books focus mainly on mathematics, reading and writing. The content is presented in an easy-to-understand format. Educational books provide children with both images and words to stimulate their senses; children with learning disabilities require this combination. Activities are provided to help the child practice skills within the book. Most educational books also provide suggestions for other activities, and some feature sounds for a more interactive experience. Computers: Child-oriented laptops feature games based on the model you choose. These games are geared to specific age groups and are based on your child's learning level. Games focus on using images, sounds and words to make learning more fun. Children enjoy playing the games and will learn both basic and advanced skills through continued play. Educational computer games are also available specifically for certain disabilities, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, auditory and visual processing disorders and nonverbal learning disorders. Board games: Most children's board and card games can be adapted for children with learning disabilities. For instance, the popular children's game Go Fish can be used to teach number recognition and even basic counting. Other games can help teach children letters and spelling or counting with paper money while playing with friends and family. Instead of focusing solely on winning the game, focus on teaching children while they play. Board and card games can help children of all ages with learning disabilities. Other toys: Dolls can help boost a child's self-esteem, which helps them learn better. Dolls that focus on the child's disability helps the child feel like they're not so different after all. Many dolls are electronic and focus on learning games specific to the learning disability. Wooden toys, especially those with colored, detachable parts, are used to help stimulate a child's senses and teach counting and colors. These toys also help develop logical thinking skills when the child is putting the parts back together.
