Format: Paperback
By Dorothy Ryan

"Our Brain When We Grieve," the chapter by Polly O'Connor, is outstanding.
My mother recently passed away and my grief at times has felt overwhelming.
In her chapter, the author explains scientific material on how our brain experiences
loss in easy to read and understand terms. Her "assignments" to help the pain
of loss are caring and creative. I used several to help me deal with not only my
mother's passing but again when a close friend recently died. While I am still
a neophyte at learning how to focus less on sorrow and more on joyful memories,
thanks to "Our Brain When We Grieve," I am coping better than I expected.
Polly O'Connor's writing style is clear and succinct. Her compassion is conveyed
on every page. Other chapters I found helpful in Changes of the Heart include
"You've Just Been Elected to the Board" and "Ending the War at Work."
You'll be making the right choice when you buy this book!

Format: Paperback
there are so many books on the self-help market that focus on promoting the writer through giving guidance ranging from obvious to bogus to plain boring - as opposed to actually offering helpful practical advice. this one is NOT one of those. very well written by people who obviously care about others, the book does not 'lecture' you but is full of simple and clear down-to-earth pragmatic strategies of facing both every day dilemmas as well as more challenging situations (from losing weight and getting along with colleagues at work - to child rearing and pursuing your life passions). people who wrote this book are not in love with themselves - they are in love with you and their passion is to help you do and be better. reading this books is like talking to a best friend - the authors know you darn well and their advice is spot on. a fantastic read - and a great positive holiday gift.

This is a great book, very well written and easy to read and follow. It offers simple yet very helpful and powerful steps on a variety of life challenges. Reading this book made me feel good about myself and helped me redefine and clarify my decision-making process. I think the fact that each chapter in this book is written by a different life coach who has expertise in a particular field makes it so great and unique. Following easy steps and advice from this book made me a happier person and took off a considerable amount of stress in my life. It is amazing how reading one book can change a person so much! I highly recommend it!

My wife and I were in the process of buying a summer home and were considering an option to buy a mobile home. We couldn't quite figure out whether to buy it or not so we used a chapter in the book "Practical Guide to making choices" by Alina Bas and went through the exercise and then it became really clear to us that we do not want to buy that specific house. This book let us see our assumptions, commitments and desires clearly and put us on the same page. Later on we got a much better deal which saved us tens of thousands of dollars!
This book is an amazing tool!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received this book as a gift from a friend, specifically for Polly O'Connor's chapter, "Our Brain When We Grieve," to help with the sudden loss of my two very special pets. Polly's chapter was immensely helpful. Normally a pretty rational and overly logical person, I couldn't help thinking I was going crazy to be grieving so much over two small animals who had lived good, long lives. Polly's chapter explained how neurological patterns trigger certain emotional and physical responses, including pain during loss. Although (necessarily) a little technical, her explanations were very clear and understandable - and very interesting. I also find understanding how the brain processes different thoughts and emotions to be very helpful in dealing with other life issues.

After reading that chapter, I thought I'd just breeze through a few of the other chapters to see what they were about. As it turned out, I found it hard to put the book down because every single chapter contained valuable advice and tips on other important life situations: business, relationships, families, decision-making, etc. I highly recommend "Changes of the Heart." I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from it!

It is quite rarely we call books beautiful, but "Changes of the heart" indeed is a great work of amazing talented people who had a power to get together and create the book which can answer to so many different questions for different stages of life. Almost encyclopedia for life, it can be helpful when you need to loose weight, have questions how to raise a challenging child, making difficult choices or need to renew your energy. It is all in one book. I own the copy and looking forward to give it as gift to my friends and family.
