More About the Author

Brian Leaf, M.A., is the author of eleven books, including Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi, Name That Movie!, Defining Twilight, and McGraw-Hill's Top 50 Skills for a Top Score. He is the only man alive to have written both a yoga memoir and multiple test-prep guides. He is not sure if this is a noble or dubious distinction.

Brian is Director of the New Leaf Learning Center in Massachusetts, where he has helped thousands of students from throughout the United States manage ADD and overcome test and math phobias.

Brian graduated from Georgetown University in 1993 with a B.A. in Business, English, and Theology.
In 1999, he completed a Masters through Lesley College specializing in yoga and ayurveda for Attention Deficit Disorder.
Brian is certified as a Yoga Instructor, Ayurvedic Practitioner, Massage Therapist, Energyworker, and Holistic Educator, and he is an avid meditator. He has also dabbled with Bach Flower Essences, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Reiki, Shiatsu, and Tai Chi. Can you top that?

So what's the connection between yoga and test-prep? Let's just say that one of Brian's first yoga teaching gigs was at the ETS corporation (Educational Testing Service) in Princeton, NJ. They're the folks who make the SAT. So now Brian gets paid hundreds of dollars per hour to share what he learned while the test-makers were half asleep in relaxation pose.

Format: Paperback
Defining New Moon is a workbook that helps you learn vocabulary for SAT, ACT, GED and SSAT, by using the book New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. The work book is not only for those tests listed above, but you can also use them to brush up and learn new words. How it works is in the workbook, they give you groups of words and page numbers on where you'll find the word in the actual book. You can then write what you think the word means and then check your answer on the next page which has the definitions. The workbook also has synonyms, analogies and sentence completions.

If you're anything like me, then it sometimes takes a little bit for you to feel like studying. You think about other things, get online, or read a book (not the one you're suppose to be studying..) instead of just jumping in. I think we're all a little guilty of this from time to time. So, when I saw Defining New Moon, I was eager to get it and see if it really worked or not. I was very surprised by how much I liked the book and how much I learned. I would look up the word in New Moon and try to guess what it meant. Sometimes I was right, sometimes I wasn't. But now I know more words than I did when I began this little experiment.

I highly recommend Defining New Moon, along with it's predecessor Defining Twilight. Coming soon there is also going to be a Defining Eclipse, which I'll definitely have to get my hands on! I think these are very helpful workbooks and Twilight fans are going to love them! I think what Mr. Leaf is doing here is great and and it's a genius idea! I think anything to help is worth giving a shot and this is a series to try out! You can check out Brian Leaf, M.A on his website or you can become a fan facebook where there's usually giveaways and news about the series.

Defining New Moon is wonderful. Plain and simple. Not only does it help you understand what you are reading, but it also introduces hundred of new words into your vocabulary. It also has questions that you can answer to help you more understand what those words are and how to use them. I'd recommend this book to and Twilight fan!

Please people with the money, if you buy a new book, include a used one in your shopping cart. That will help Amazon enormously in their storage, and it can help you too. At some places the price can’t lower to lesser a penny. Take a used book for a 0.01$ anywhere.
It has many usage including, “Cash4Books.net”
Recycle it or Burn it for survival heat. Use two books as spacers to raise your monitor because it’s always better to view at eye leveled to the center of your screen. Even better, send it to donation, any library would take it, or the third world too.
Do not fear a book because it has no teeth!!
When you open your used book, wear gloves if you have to, then you’ll realize, “This book ain’t that bad after all.”
Good read and peace!!
- Ricky

My daughter and I sat down together to use this workbook and I'm so pleased with the layout. Not only is it topic friendly, using Vocab from a popular novel, but it is user friendly. I would love Brian Leaf to do this with novels my younger kids read, such as Fablehaven.
