Every parent & grand parent should read this book. It gives practical ways to manage discipline & there are an abundance of examples to guide & teach. It is the opposite of yelling & threats, & actually works!

When I ordered the book, I did not realize it was a lamenated fold out guide to knots. I thought it was going to be a small pocket book. But it is a great little manual. My husband claims to be a knot genius and he liked this guide. He said it has all the practical and useful knots with easy to follow directions. He also found out he had been tying one knot incorrectly. it is useful and helpful and easy.

I like this book over other books on Yoga because it is a simpler, and in my mind more common sense way to do Yoga. The book is well written, the pictures of the positions are good, I like the way they explain not just "HOW" to do the pose, but "how" it should feel, what muscles are bieng worked, as well as warnings about what you should not feel while holding the pose. It also explains in simple language what the pose does for the muscles bieng worked. The book contains recipes for healthier eating, as well as chapters on various other related subjects. The tips on Meditation were excellent! I find Kripalu Yoga a more Practical, and easier to follow discipline then the more well known Yoga practices. Great for people new to Yoga, or someone becoming reacquainted!

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.

This book guides parents of teens in how to focus on the heart motivations rather than just behavioral change. It is practical and encouraging.

If you only buy one SAT study guide, make it this one because this is the one your teenagers might actually read and use. It gets right to the point in a language they like and isn't filled with hundreds of pages of practice tests that they can get free online (where most teens prefer to take practice tests anyway). In addition to practical tips for increasing one's score on the SAT, it has a vocabulary section with concise definitions. The vocab words are also used throughout the book for greater exposure to them.

If you do Yoga at home, this is the only book you will need. It is just what I was looking for as a beginner.

I was just diagnosed with celiac disease three months ago and have been looking for good resources on not only how to eat properly but live with the disease. This book does it with style and humor! The author includes a few recipes but don't buy the book just for that. They are recipes submitted by chefs from 5 star restaurants and these recipes mean serious time in the kitchen which even before celiac was not me. This is a practical guide on what you can eat, how to survive the world outside your uncontaminated kitchen and to do it with style. The author gives many resources for all aspects of going gluten free. You don't need to sit there and eat carrot sticks while everyone around you enjoys a good meal.
