This set is the best book set! When my daughters were little, we wore them out because they loved them all so much. I must've given away about 5 or 6 sets to other children (both boys and girls) over the years because they're so cute and hilarious. The illustrations are easy and the storylines are so creative and funny for all ages, as most of Amy Krouse Rosenthal's books are. If you don't have it in your library, I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.
So a lot of amazing reviews. I really search these only OK, mostly because of the lack of polite language. I change all the “can i”s to “may i”s when we read e pea book is cute, but teaches littles if yoj dislike dinner, thst is normal. Just suffer through it until you [may] have dessert. The owl book and pig book each have some whininess, though in the end both children do mind their parents. Honestly I will give these away before my small is much older.
We had learned about "The Small Pea" from the libary and my small one just loved it. I decided to test this set and purchased as an Easter bonus for her and she just loves them. For what ever reason....the messaging sticks and oddly enought she eats her spinach now :-) She has also memorized the stories. We love them!
These are my favorite baby books ever. The stories are so sweet and have just the right small bit of humor/irony. The illustrations are easy yet engaging. I give this boxed set as a baby bonus to all my friends! It’s such a sweet collection. I still read them with my 7-yr old!
I gave this to my 3 year old for her birthday and since we had them from the library she already knew what they were. She loves Small Pea and can actually recite it, that's how much we read it. I like it in the board books because it is definitely getting a workout from my small one year old who loves me to read books to him too. Amazing quality, amazing bonus set. I ended up throwing the actual box away since there's no reason to hold a box around if these books are always being taken out! But buying it in the boxed set is much cheaper than buying all three separately.I love the theme of these stories and how they are all so similar. Some people may search that tiresome and tedious, but I think it offers routine and familiarity to my kiddos.
Bought these for a friend's niece. I had read them all at the library and loved the stories (and the twist on getting the different protagonists to do things that small ones may not normally like to do, such as clean), and the board versions are just so darn cute!
Like a lot of of today’s children books, these stories are a bit vapid: small oink’s parents wish him to mess up the house, small pea has to eat his candy for dinner, small hoot has to stay up late. I’m not sure if this is playing into the modern notion of silly parents and random rules.
This small book is an perfect introduction to Peacemaking Circles. It is NOT a "How To" book. It does provide a amazing introduction to Circles for the reader. It also seems to be a helpful resource for introducing others to the subject and helping groups, organizations, and communities consider getting more info and training and possibly using Circles for conflict resolution, to promote dialogue around difficult topics, discovery and learning of various perspectives, alternative sentencing in courts, alternative discipline in schools, e book is well written, clear and concise. The author is knowledgeable and has much practical (and inspirational) experience. I enjoyed the brief stories and examples used in the book, which seemed fitting for the subject.I did search it somewhat redundant in how it introduced the core elements of Circles in the second chapter, and then attempted to explain them further in a separate chapter (c 6). I didn't search much extra information in the chapter on the core elements, though some expansion of ideas previously introduced was helpful. I wondered if the limited zone in the book could have been better used to cover extra content (The "Little Books of Justice & Peacebuilding" series seems to be wisely limited to 90 pages). I was glad that the author did address different challenges to implementing Circles in the book.
A must read for people who are interested in being in circle and learning more about creating community. Kay Pranis uses her experience to benefit families and communities with opportunities to bring people together.
Circle Processes is a really amazing reference for anyone looking to learn a bit about the benefit of working in circles. This book outlines why circles are used for therapy sessions, the criminal justice system and in school settings. It also outlines the reasons that circles are amazing ways to promote healing and accountability. I used this book for more than one project in courses focused on education. There is a lot of amazing info contained in this small book. A mate of mine recommended it after her school started teacher conferences to go over the benefits of circle processes.
I’m a doctoral student at Boston University. This was one of the needed texts. It has helped me learn more about facilitating community and peace in the locations around me. I’ve become excited about using the skills introduced here. If you love people and wish human harmony, this is a MUST read. Enjoy.
Best book on the shop to quickly learn about the philosophy behind restorative justice. There are so a lot of books to follow it up with but Kay lays out the basics and makes you wish to learn more!
I found this book helpful in explaining the circle process. it has support drive my desire to see this process used in corrections rather than longer sentences or other forms of punishment.
I actually took a class and this was a needed book. I received it in a timely fashion and it was in amazing condition
If you wish to learn about gratitude, the person to go to is Dr. Bob Emmons. The Small Book of Gratitude is an awesome resource for folks who wish to be introduced to this topic as well as some of us who already practice and teach gratitude.Dr. Emmons gives us the research and provides similar activities – things to do today to increase our happiness and wellbeing.I will often refer to this small book in my workshops and ank you Dr. Emmons for an awesome small book of gratitude.
This little book includes only 96 pages, with plentiful illustrations throughout the text. Whereas it is thus a potentially fast and simple read, you will do well to slow down when entering the globe depicted within its pages. This volume may be small, but like a little box of the finest chocolates, it should be savored one morsel at a time. Informed by roughly 15 years of rigorous research, the eight chapters overflow with unbelievable wisdom in plain English showing the practical power of gratitude. The reader will learn much regarding the value of cultivating thankfulness. Moreover, this Small Book of Gratitude contains a wide assortment of readily doable activities to support one develop a truly grateful outlook that enhances life’s blessings and buffers life’s hardships. Far from being a naïve, Pollyannaish foray into the globe of “thinking satisfied thoughts,” Dr. Emmons teaches the reader to use gratitude as a realistic lens through which both happiness and sorrow can be valued and seen more clearly. Read this book, reflect on it, test the practical tips, and then repeat. You will be very grateful that you did.
"Gratitude enables a person to feel amazing and also to do good." Indeed - and Dr. Robert Emmons has done a masterful job of teaching us how to make & grow our own practice of gratitude. The 100 "little" pages are filled with enormously strong ideas and tools. He has woven a attractive tapestry of the science, beauty and power of "giving away the goodness."I purchased ten copies to give for holiday bonuses and will be getting more - - rarely can you give a bonus that is life changing. This is one. Thanks, Bob Emmons, for doing and then skillfully translating the science, for inspiring us to change the method we approach our everyday lives and how we interact with the world.
This is a attractive book. I liked it so much that I got it for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day. He loves it.I started a gratitude journal where I spend fifteen mins doing the exercises it recommends before I go to bed. It has a amazing result on my sleep and my attitude the next day.
Two days into reading this book and practicing several of its suggestions has created an extraordinary difference in my life. I would recommend it to anyone who is unhappy or going through a rough time even if it seems counter intuitive.
As a self-proclaimed gratitude junkie, The Small Book of Gratitude fit right into my everyday practice. I love how the author layered in science and research and provided tangible, relevant practice. I only [email protected]#$%! would have been longer.
This small book is a gem. Don't be fooled by the beautiful layout and whimsical drawings - this is not "gratitude light". Robert Emmons is a leading researcher and expert in the field and knows exactly what he is talking about. It's a amazing short introduction into the subject including several practices. This is a unbelievable starter for anyone interested in the subject - and makes an amazing and thoughtful gift.
...He'd yell out loud and throw his toys." Well-rhymed, well-illustrated, charming children's book together with a fine family message! Already went on to purchase "Marty and Momo Create Bedtime Fun" from same author as I enjoyed the book so and looking to add more of this author's works to my collection in the near future. Just a heads up that if you are wanting the gift coloring pages mentioned in the description I suspect you'll have to order the paperback, but didn't hamper my enjoyment factor of the book whatsoever so earns the full 5 stars. Monstrous fun I heartily recommend!
I have a small son and he likes to have stories before sleeping. And this book was recommended me by my sister. This is a very fun, interesting and colourful bedtime story book. I think that this book is very amazing for families who have children in their houses. If your kids love having story before going to bed, then this book is for is book includes perfect bright and colourful illustrations that create it more awesome for kids. The rhyming is perfect for learning and makes for a amazing read-a loud book. My son listens to this story with amazing pleasure. It is his favourite book now. Our all family likes to read this book. It is really great! I recommend this book for families with children. It is worth reading.
The colourful illustrations and Swampy’s merry look created me wish to buy this small book. The small Swampy, his family, as well as rhyme and illustrations a kind of stirred my finest childhood memories in me. I’ve just bought this book and I’ll read it to my son when he grows up a little! The story will teach him to do the right things before sleep. Well, it is so well rhymed, so why not test it right now as a lullaby!
This story is amazing to read to your children when they go to bed, it is filled with cute illustrations and gives a very positive notice for kids. You really need to read to your son or daughter this book!
Oh, what an awesome bed time children story book! I purchased this items for my small daughter latest week. This small story created my small daughter wish to have Swampy as a pet. The monster got her laughing and crying at the same time. Personally, I loved the overall illustration of this book. My unique thanks for the rhyme and images.
Is there a cuter method to convince a kid to follow the nighttime routine? My small nephew gets beautiful stubborn at times just like Swampy when it comes to doing bedtime stuff. Maybe that small Swampy will create him wish to do all that lol. Indeed, the rhyme sounds fine and the pics are all so cute, I think it will work!
This is a truly soothing, yet joyful bedtime story. A charge of positive mood before sleep won’t hurt a kid. Swampy the creature is not spooky at all. He can even be obedient when motivated. My daughter and I found the rhyme sleepy, she crashed out halfway into it, and I began to doze off too!
Bedtime is hard for kids everywhere. This book gives the concept a delightful spin with the helpful older brother. It is a cute story ending in an satisfied resolution. The only issue I had was the occasional stiffness of the prose in an effort to complete the rhyme. I realize that the rhyming format was a style choice, but it does result the flow of the story in a few places. I would highly recommend this book for kids under four. The pictures are adorable and the feel of the book is sweet.
It’s quite so funny, but this book is a amazing motivator, at least for my small son. Somehow he took to Swampy and now wants to do as he finally did in the story. That is beautiful much thanks to the pics. And the rhyme is so melodic and gentle! We love this bedtime story!
Swampy, the small one learns lessons taught by his huge brother. This is the method it should be! The book really teaches an elder sibling to be responsible for his or her younger one. All characters are cute, and the rhyme is all so soothing and peaceful. Nice!
I intended my star rating to stand as my opinion and review of the book, having now been needed to write such that my rating can be public I will share what I will call an experiential report-a "this is how it has been helpful to me" review. Anyone who has gone through a graduate philosophy program (maybe any MA program) will attest to the disorientating and mind-numbing trials of papers, tests, reading, note taking, lectures, etc. that brought me, on multiple occasions to ask, "Is this really worth it". Can anyone relate? This book came to me through a couple whom mentor me, and I have used it as a reminder, a kind of anchor, when I face that question, or something like it. It has the thoughts of not only the author, but of so a lot of amazing thinkers of the philosophical professional field giving what could be considered a report of what they do, and more importantly, why they do what they do. I have flipped it begin and read those reports (some of which are only sentences long) and "gone and done the same". A mate and, as of this semester, a philosophical program colleague faces epistemology and metaphysics next semester-I will be giving him this book before he does.
Paul Copan teaches philosophy at Palm Beach Atlantic the subtitle of this book indicates, this book talks about the advantages of studying philosophy. It seems to be aimed at people who wonder whether they should pursue philosophy as an academic study, perhaps for a career in e book thoughtfully explores a dozens of subjects: the increasing acceptance of theism within philosophical circles, arguments for the existence of God, the existence of the soul, verificationism, similarities and differences between the God of the Bible and the philosophical God (i.e., the picture of God influenced by Greek philosophy), the question of whether atheists bear any burden of proof, and what to do with religious doubt. Copan also defends the study of philosophy versus Christians who regard it as antithetical to Christianity. Not only does Copan offer an alternative interpretation of Bible verses that have been cited versus philosophy, but he also effectively argues that Scripture itself, along with Christian minds throughout history, have encouraged the life of the pan also offers a lay-of-the-land of academia, as he speaks from experience as an academic philosopher. For Copan, Christian philosophers should exemplify the fruit of the Spirit in how they treat colleagues, including those with whom they disagree. This may sound obvious, but Copan offers practical tip on how to be a Christian in academia: how to view one’s own work, how to support others, and how being in a group of Christian philosophers can be important. Cohan also shares how he went through Coppleston’s series of books on philosophy, and that may be helpful to people who are seriously interested in the field, as well as people whose minds can easily wander when they are reading!I would like to quote some of my favorite lines in the book, just to give you a taste:“Practicing philosophy in the method of Jesus, for instance, requires that professors never publicly dismantle a graduate student’s paper at a conference” (page 81).“So whether we publish much or little, whether our work is widely admired or falls stillborn from the press, we will be a faithful presence wherever God has placed us” (pages 82-83).“My PhD advisor told me not to attempt anything earthshaking for my dissertation…He suggested I hold my nose to the grindstone, work hard and save any bold work for later” (pages 92-93).And, as someone who wonders if James 1:6-8 condemns all doubt, I appreciated Cohan’s interpretation: “Actually, James is condemning a mindset of divided loyalty between God and the world—-a spiritual adultery” (page 103).The book may support Christian students at secular universities to feel less alone when their Christianity is challenged. This book demonstrates that smart people have embraced Christianity and have pursued careers in is book, by itself, may not provide Christian students with sufficient arguments to use versus atheists and skeptics, who can easily answer with “Where’s the proof for God’s existence?”, dismiss some arguments as wishful thinking, or see some arguments as “God in the gaps” arguments. Copan criticizes “God in the gaps” arguments as lazy, but he also seems to prefer theistic explanations because they at least attempt to acc for things that puzzle naturalists. Naturalists would probably see that approach itself as a “God in the gaps” approach, believing that we should not dismiss the chance of a natural explanation just because one currently eludes us. The book may still provide Christian students with a starting-point in addressing atheist and skeptical arguments.A disappointment, in terms of the book, is that it did not really discover how Christians can be edified by philosophical insights. Granted, it talked about how philosophy can sharpen one’s mind, but, when it came to philosophy, it largely focused on the questions of whether God and the soul exist. Can philosophy do more than buttress what Christians already believe to be true? Can it teach them anything new? On pages 38-39, Copan refers positively to analytic theologians who “haven’t focused primarily on Christian apologetics or arguments for God’s existence…” Copan’s book would have been better had its horizons been e book also had somewhat of a siege mentality, in places: Christians must test to protect their faith, and Christians should hang around their own. I should stress, though, that, the opposite approach is in the book, too, as it encourages those interested in philosophy to learn the thoughts of major philosophical figures and to engage atheist and skeptical philosophers. Copan also has reasons for holding the Christian faith, which contain arguments, its explanatory power, its satisfaction of human longings, and the experiences of the supernatural by people he knows. I doubt that Copan is insecure in his faith. It just seems that he is for exploration, but he wants it to arrive at Christian conclusions. Of course, there are atheists and skeptics who are the same way, with their own worldviews, but is there a method to be open-minded while holding a particular worldview, as opposed to being in a no-man’s land?I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My review is honest!
A Small Book for Fresh Philosophers by Paul Copan is an excellent, short tutorial as to why and how to study philosophy. This book is notable for giving a very short, cogent summary of why it is reasonable to believe that God exists, as the author notes as follows:“We should also consider God’s robust explanatory power. Christian philosopher Alvin Plantinga says that theism “offers suggestions for answers to a wide range of otherwise intractable questions.” The existence of consciousness, beauty, free will, personhood, rationality, duties and human value – not to mention the beginning and fine-tuning of the universe and the existence of life itself – are hardly surprising if a good, personal, rational, creative, strong and wise God exists. Conversely, these 10 phenomena are quite startling if they are the effect of deterministic, valueless, non-conscious and non-rational material processes.”Another key section of this book is a compelling respond to atheist Bertrand Russell’s questions as to why God doesn’t provide more evidence of his existence. According to Copan, God doesn’t reveal himself to the proud, the apathetic or half-hearted. Rather, God reveals himself to those who seek him with all their heart. God rewards faith, not nce philosophy is the love of wisdom, real philosophers will love this book.
Not far into Paul Copan’s //A Small Book for Fresh Philosophers: Why and How to Study Philosophy// I thought to myself, “This may become needed reading for all introductory courses in Bible and theology programs.” The first two chapters are absolutely unbelievable and rightly demonstrate a put for philosophy within Christianity. However, Copan thereafter takes a sharp dive into axioms and poorly articulated arguments that leave the reader wondering how this was ever intended to be a primer on philosophy for Christians. It feels as if Copan assumes //a priori// knowledge of the very reasoning espoused so that it need not be articulated, which is contrary to the book’s purpose. Unfortunately, rather than introducing the reader to philosophy’s put in Christianity, this fits better as an exercise in dogma. (Concerning much of what is actually articulated, Copan relies heavily on Alvin Plantinga, which speaks to his tradition and philosophical presuppositions.)Concerning the positive note, the following are included in the first two chapters:“Philosophy is mind-sharpening.” (20)“Philosophy helps us to see that ideas have consequences.” (21)“Philosophy expands our horizons.” (21)“Philosophy can support isolate poor or sloppy thinking.” (22)“Philosophy can strengthen our theology.” (24)“Everyone takes a philosophical view of things—a worldview, some call it—even if their philosophical assumptions are subconscious and unexplored. Like it or not, whatever your outlook or training, you are a philosopher!” (31)“Another method of looking at philosophy is as a kind of tool. In this sense it is a //way// of thinking, not the //result// of your thinking.” (33, emphasis original.)I expected more from IVP Academic with this one, but it does fit a theological trend in what I’m seeing from them recently. However, despite my overall opinions of the text, I would still recommend students read through chapter 2 of this book.*I received a temporary digital copy for review from IVP Academic via NetGalley.
Friends:This book spans my entire lifetime starting with a Honda 90cc motorcycle to my current BMW K1600 GTL..... The quotes are really the essence of each motorcycle enthusiast mentioned in the plan is to Google the name of each person quoted to make hours of enjoyable reading..... I already remember that some have written their own books and even created Hollywood films that we can inking Allowed....Arthur Gerard Michael Baron von Boennighausen
Beautiful good. Any motorcycle similar book aimed at humor should contain some Ed Hertfelder quips. Ed is probably riding somewhere today with a week old fried egg sandwich in his jacket pocket. I am a rider for 50 plus years and admire Peter Egan and Hertfelder as very talented writers.
Honestly I bought this book thinking on a BASEBALL Law book, but I was surprised on how interesting it is. It has true legal facts and cases that has happened in baseball. Simple to read (I finished it in one afternoon - watching a android game ..)
The Small White Book of Baseball Law is well worth the price. The authors, John H. Minan and Kevin Cole, have blended 226 pages of fascinating legal disputes from baseball's history with an examination of some of the more arcane rules in baseball. This lawyer/reader, as an 11 year old Cleveland Indians fan, without a television, began my love of baseball around the time I "heard" Willie Mays' popular over the head catch in the 1954 Globe Series. The Small White Book of Baseball Law more than happy my 55 year quest to understand everything worthy that America's pastime could brings to our e depth and breadth of The Small White Book of Baseball Law is commendable. The eighteen chapter topics range from Sammy Sosa's corked bat incident in 2003, to the perjury allegations versus Barry Bonds derived from his Grand Jury testimony. There is an explanation of when, why, and if, Media corporations televising Major League Baseball can preempt Major League Baseball rtually every page has a tidbit of info that even the most dedicated fan will appreciate. Perhaps the most interesting literary device in the Book is the "Umpire's Ruling" segment that follows each chapter explaining a pertinent legal problem of the android game in concise lay person's terms. What happens when a pitched ball is stuck in the catcher's mask? What are the rules for "balks"? When is a catch a legal "catch"? Who is liable for injuries on and off the field, and on the method to the hospital? What are the merits of metal bats vs wooden bats? The reader will explore that a ball hit by a metal bat will travel at a speed of more than 100 miles per hour (mph) over 40% of time and arrive at the pitchers mound in less than .4 of a second, a shade faster than the average ball hit by a wooden bat, therefore reducing the reaction time of a pitcher finishing up his e most interesting chapter for me was the concise explanation of the positive impact of Curt Flood's unsuccessful legal war on the reserve clause in the Federal Courts, which ultimately became the catalyst for the "Curt Flood Act" in which Congress included major league baseball players' "employment" contracts within the protections of the antitrust laws, but did not provide minor league players with the same protection in order to preserve the Minor League farm system. As Hint O'Neil once said "Everything is political". Apparently, even in Baseball. This is a amazing read!
My wife purchased this book for me as a Birthday Bonus and I cannot sum it up any better than stating "Professor Minan hit this one out of the park!". After falling in love with the Professor's first book in this series "The Small Green Book of Golf Law", I couldn't wait to begin this one. The sequel surely does not disappoint the baseball purist. I challenge Professor Minan to come up with his next installment in the international realm of "football" -- surely there are amazing international legal cases that would entertain us from continent to continent! Bravo Professor!
I originally purchased this book at the AAPS meeting where Dr. Palmisano spoke. I never saw myself as a leader, so I gave this book as a bonus to different supervisors at work. This year, I took the book out again as I was created my town's volunteer coordinator for the Trump campaign. Dr. P's philosophy that leaders are made, not born, was very helpful to me. I then saw that a lot of of the supervisors to whom I had given this book were not leaders at all, but managers! That was my brief experience working for government. So the book also helped me see what is so wrong with government bureaucracies: leadership towards the betterment of the organization is stifled and failure becomes a good. Another interesting note on reading this again in 2016, is that Dr. P. never mentions Donald Trump as a leader, but does create a back-handed remark about people who place their names in huge letters on buildings. This book would be especially helpful as a bonus for young white men, who face tremendous discouragement and discrimination in today's society.
About 30 years ago, a tv miniseries detailed Winston Churchill's life between 1929 and 1940---his so called "wilderness years." Churchill had become estranged from the Conservative party after its conquer in the 1929 elections, primarily over the problems of protective tariffs and home rule for India. Already a public servant for 29 years and now out of government and ridiculed for his warnings about Germany, Churchill had amazing reason to be depressed. Yet during this time of relative isolation, during which he wrote his biography of the First Duke of Marlborough and A History of the English Speaking Peoples, he refined a lot of of the characteristics that made the remarkable Prime Minister and freedom winner that we remember. "The most risky myth in leadership is that leaders are born", quotes Dr. Palmisano of Professor Warren Bennis. "That's nonsense...Leaders are made."Dr. Palmisano's recent book is an beautiful compilation of quotations from men and women who know firsthand about leadership, divided by themes (which correspond to the leadership traits that he described in his earlier books), and nicely illustrated (often by Dr. Palmisano's own handsome photographs). He has assembled what he modestly calls a "book of ideas" on the subject of ers will search The Small Red Book of Leadership Lessons to be much more than that. What becomes evident throughout is that the amazing thinkers from classical Rome to our current times strike the same recurrent meta-themes of liberty, honesty, courage, tenacity, courtesy, and ethics. At a time when some of these principles may seem naïve or quaint, the truths that emerge--and their timelessness--are necessary for us all to remember. This book is the excellent bonus for young people--tomorrow's leaders--and I personally think should be on every teenager's desk. The rest of us will have the perspective to even better appreciate the relevance and importance of the principles that Dr. Palmisano has so carefully collected.A provocative study published in 1992 by psychiatrists at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital detailed the results of psychometric data on 107 Harvard College student-leaders followed from 1941 to 1991. One of the most fascinating findings, to me at least, was that those men who had seen combat in Globe Battle Two were more likely to be later listed in Who's Who in America than those who had not seen combat. I am not surprised at these findings, and they mesh with a lot of of the themes that Dr. Palmisano's selected authors his next book, I hope that Dr. Palmisano will dig further into the lives of some of these men and women and present us what it was in their lives that drew out leadership qualities. "Man...will prevail," Dr. Palmisano quotes of William Faulkner, "because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance."A nice notice for all of us.
This is a nicely organized collection of pithy sayings about leadership. As such, the book reads like a collection of proverbs, which makes for simple and fast reading. The eclectic list of thinkers ranges from ancient to contemporary. An unfortunate omission from this book is the lack of an index. For example, I wanted to reference Dr Leah McCormack's quotation for this review, but the lack of an index means that the casual reader will have to read the book to search her unbelievable pearl of wisdom within its pages. However, that's not an entirely poor thing, as there are a lot of other pearls strung throughout the pages to delight the casual reader. This is a nice addition for the Kindle, and I heartily recommend this book.
Former AMA President Donald Palmisano MD has done it again. This compilation of lessons learned in quotation form is simply a treasure trove of inspiration, wisdom and guidance. This book deserves its rightful put next to Sun Tzu's Art of Battle - Yes, it is that good. In fact, I urge everyone to send a copy of this book to every member of Congress during these challenging times. Again, Buy This Book!
The perennial philosophy is called perennial because it is so. Gathered from a multitude of leaders, both contemporary and historical, this recent release from Dr. Palmisano is filled with inspiring quotes and truisms that stand the try of time. One such truism, and perhaps the dominant theme throughout, is in the importance of Liberty. Liberty, not just as a beneficial idea, but as a principle woven into our very existence from the fundamentals of the universe. This "Little Red Book of Leadership Lessons" is indeed a pithy gathering of wisdom. An perfect read and resource!
This book is a must read for all Americans,, particularly in this election year. the author clearly reveals the qualities of hero inherrently shared by true leaders. He does this by presenting inspirational sketches of persons, who by the example of their own lives, give an example for leadership development in all of us. Well written and entertaining, this book will uplift all readers.
Again Dr Palmisano [email protected]#$%! it out of the park. The book is a fast, timely read. The style from his previous books on leadership works very well in this fresh format. It is full of timely quotations that are both informative and reusable. He has added fresh leaders and their special leadership talents. Well worth the price
For anyone in a leadership position -or trying to understand what makes leaders amazing and successful, this small volumewill present you what the elements of a amazing leader are.I thoroughly enjoyed this book - and recommend it very highly !
This book is especially helpful for people who are fresh to fly fishing, but is also for seasoned fishers. The pages are created of a thick textbook, shiny paper which create it more durable to water (but it is still probably not a amazing idea to dunk in a lake or river). Overall very satisfied with this purchase! It is informative for a "little book"; photos and quality / clarity of writing is great.
I bought this for Father's Day for my husband, whom has just recently gotten into fly fishing and fly tying. He packs it everywhere! I wasn't expecting it to be as huge a book as it was, for that price, but also little enough to take with you! It's a very nice small book, with lots of amazing info! My husband really enjoyed it!
Why read a multitude of books on fly fishing when the authors took the mystery out of the sport! Simple to follow and very informative. Easy illustration coupled with simple to understand text that any level fly fishing enthusiast can appreciate. As the authors point out proper technique and how to solve issues you might encounter you will be amazed how your fishing becomes more enjoyable and successful.
If you love horses, than you also love reading, thinking, being around them, so a book like this is the ultimate feel-good book to pick up and read about the thoughts of popular horse-lovers. Broken up into chapters on topics such as Ages of the Horse through history, Amazing Horses, Humorous Horse, The Horse is Never Wrong, On the Track, They don't call it Sitting: On Riding, and the latest chapter which is about taming, training, breaking and gentling."Nothing brings such innocent joy or such profound awareness that I am not invincible as the horseback experience.--Melissa Sovey-Nelson, If I Had A Horse." loc. 68"The best horse doesn't always victory the race.--Irish Proverb." loc. 1485"Riding becomes a break from reality, a time when I know why I am.--Gawani Pony Boy, Of Women and Horses." loc 2041"I think jumping is the largest thrill of all. It's the closest thing to flying. Nothing feels better than galloping down a huge jump and having a horse take flight. It's like being super-human.--Nona Carson." loc. 2060"In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. Eleven-hundred pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs--it's something you just can't obtain from a pet hamster.--Anonymous" loc.588The book is full of these inspiring thoughts about horses. What's not to love?
What a compilation of observations from folks a lot smarter than me. I have a small horse clinic every Sunday here at my ranch. I place this small gem out on the meal table and sit back and watch the smiles come over those who take a few mins to peruse it. Eventually, I think I'll place it on the night stand in my guest room. Excellent for my town clicker visitors, as well as my equine loving soul mates.
I'm not done with the book yet, but so far it's an simple read. Mr. Kleiman is able to explain the topic of Zone Law so the average non-lawyer can grasp the huge picture. It's helping me understand what I need to look for when voting and investing. Zone will be America's next HUGE hurdle after our chaotic healthcare and Middle East problems are settled. Do your homework NOW!!
Amazing primary starting point for anyone interested in Zone Law. Naturally it only provides an introduction to different aspects of Zone Law, but for someone wanting to learn who doesn't know where to start, you can't go wrong buying this!
I bought this book simply because it was cute and seemed like a amazing bonus for a dear friend. I ended up buying one for myself because its so great! Its super simple to read, not long or complicated, but still teaches valuable lessons and inspires the reader to be more mindful. I thought the author did a amazing job writing in a fun and modern method but still delivering on an necessary message. I recommend it to all teenagers and adults! amazing gift!
This cute small Sloth Philosophy book is not what I expected. I thought it was going to be a home book but this actually was more beneficial. It uses the sloth as a cute reminder to slow down and have fun life. Lots of cute cartoon sloths.
My grown daughter has a unique put in her heart for sloths. I bought this book as a gentle joke and looked through it when it arrived. I fouled it welll written and full of common sense tip based on the sloth outlook on life.
Thought I'd take a few days to read this. Finished it in an hour. Such a easy read and profoundly helpful. I gifted a copy to a co-worker who was struggling with stress management issues. Really helped her out.
I wanted to like this book, but it's really not for me. This being a Llewellyn book, I expected more detail about spiritual/neopagan aspects of Halloween and Samhain. A amazing chunk of it was how to host a general Halloween party (which I can obtain off Pinterest). Another chunk is very, very primary esoteric items and divination techniques, like what a tarot deck is, and advising you to use your deck's book to search a spread. (C'mon. Not even one?) Had I not seen better books on this topic ("Tarot for All Seasons" for example), and having certain expectations from Llewellyn, I might have liked it better. I just didn't see anything fresh or useful here.(As for the "leftist" comment, I have NO idea what that reviewer is talking about.)
I wasn’t sure what to expect with Llewellyn’s Small Book of Halloween by Mickie Mueller, but decided to check it out to obtain into the holiday spirit. Something I particularly enjoyed was the focus on Halloween itself in its modern form and how Mickie incorporates that back into a witch’s Samhain practice. She invokes the fun of our modern secularized Halloween that we grew up with back into the sacred period of the Pagan Samhain, including the spooky and sometimes scary aspects of the celebration that are sometimes swept under the rug in modern Samhain practices. She writes that “Witches know that fully experiencing our emotions can give us power and increase our magic. In this way, fear can be a strong tool.”The book opens by going over the history and evolution of Halloween and I learned a few things about it myself that I didn’t know. There are over 33 exercises and 11 hints throughout the pages. While the book covers things you’d expect to see in a book written about Samhain from a witch such as spells and divination practices, folklore and customs, it also contains a lot of clever celebration, decoration ideas, and recipes. The divination practices range from tea leaf readings to ouija boards to hosting seances. Mickie has an entertaining writing style and I found the book an endearing fast read which definitely got me into the Halloween/Samhain spirit.
