I rated this one star for entertainment, because it is not meant to be entertaining. The information in this book is rock solid. If you wish to consider it, it is a very helpful book.

If you know someone who is from an alcoholic family, this is the book for them. It is a valuable tool for understanding the behaviors associated with people who live with alcoholics and the impact an alcoholic has on the family. It explains in details specific dysfunctional behaviors, how to identify if you and/or other family members have them, and what you can do to change those behaviors. It is not a "blame the alcoholic" kind of book. It is definitely an educational look at the disease and an empowering read of things YOU can do to cope and change YOURSELF if you are an adult child.

This book was recommended by a counselor who is helping us connect with our ADULT children. It teaches ways to stay in a conversation and allow them to be open and honest, as well as ourselves to remain calm and supportive, even when we may not be in agreement! Many other valuables tools in the book to help with all ages and with different types of human relationships.

I purchased this coloring book for an adult as a stress relieving fun activity. Her daughter was as enthusiastic about the gift as the recipient. The pages are large and the designs interesting. Printing is on one side so there is no bleeding of colors from the back. I wish I'd ordered more for holiday gifts, maybe one for myself.

The Butterfly Effect As a book review blogger for Book Sneeze I received a complimentary book called The Butterfly Effect. How your life matters written by Andy Andrews. I am not sure if I am jealous or angered at how you can take one page of uplifting inspirations and turn it into an entire book. I did enjoy the story of the Butterfly and it's wings. The graphics are outstanding. It is and would be a nice gift for someone who needs constant positive energy reenforcement. This 6 1/2' X 6 1/2' sized book with 110 pages in it is basically a book of inspirational lines. It is the adult version of the children's book The boy who changed the world. It is a nice gift basket addition to any Civil War buff. Would I recommend it ..depends on the purpose of it's use. I was basically disappointed in it. I guess I expected more even though it does make you stop and think if only for a few seconds.

This book is such an eye opener for my personal life, as well as my therapy practice. I rated entertainment as 1--because I cannot say I read this for entertainment purposes. Would highly recommend this book to anyone who has come from, is currently in, or working with anyone from a dysfunctional family--not just alcohol abuse.

Each position in football has a special job. Because each member of a football team has a specialized purpose, they require slightly different pads.

Whether you are an adult or play American football in a youth football league, you won't want to play without protection. Here are some tips on how to choose football gear that will make it easier to live up to your position.
A good pair of ski goggles will protect your eyes in many ways. Ski goggles block ultraviolet light, which can be stronger at high elevations than at near sea level. Sunlight also tends to be brighter when you're skiing because the light reflects off the snow. Ski and snowboard goggles will also protect your eyes by keeping wind and snow out better than sunglasses, and you won't have to worry about your goggles falling off or breaking as easily as sunglasses. And if you enjoy tree skiing, goggles are going to help protect your face and eyes from small branches.
Rating systems used to be so simple. Everyone understands the standard film industry rating system, and each rating is carefully described before the movie begins. Video games are different. They come in individualized packages, and gaming sessions can go on for hours on end, making it difficult for a parent to determine how appropriate a game actually is. Video game ratings may vary greatly depending on region or country, so you'll want to learn and understand the rating used in your area. In the United States, Canada and Mexico, the Entertainment Software Rating Board, or ESRB, is the authority on video game ratings. These ratings will help determine the approximate suitable age levels for games, but keep in mind that all ratings are merely recommendations that you may agree or disagree with. This step-by-step guide will help you interpret the different video game ratings, so you can better shield your family from offensive or questionable content.
