5.0 out of 5 stars A Coping Masterpiece, October 14, 2014
Wiest's book comes under the general caption
of "dynamic coping" if there is such a thing. The
basic ideas behind the coping mechanisms are
a set of tools.

These tools accomplish such things as treating
the body as a whole unit, engaging in self regulation
or discipline and understanding structure and function.

The author explains that movement begets health.
This is true because old age is much more prominent
without movement or a defining purpose in life. At
bottom, this is why centenarians live well beyond the
average life expectancy in places like Okinawa.

The author asks that we reach higher orders of
functioning by empathizing with others, appreciating
art and getting close to nature. Most experienced
physicians and physical therapists will urge you
to "listen to your body". Often, the body will signal
stop messages when we do anything in excess.

At a point late in the book, the author offers remedies
like meditating to find inner direction, appreciating
nature, tending toward the direction of ease, listening
to music, trusting your gut and examining intentions
dispassionately.

Overall, Wiest's book provides an important
roadmap for coping with virtually every curveball
that life or the world puts in front of us. The book
is well written and directed to a specific audience
of readers who may need this help the most !


Truffol DuraSound Ultra Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Built-in Speakerphone, 8 Hour Playback - Black
Truffol DuraSound Ultra Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Built-in Speakerphone, 8 Hour Playback - Black
Offered by Truffol
Price: $29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Operates Well !, October 14, 2014
This portable wireless bluetooth speaker is
easy to use. The instructions are clear and
the sound is stunning.

Just connect the line-in to your device
line-in. Turn the (on/off) switch on. Once
connected, a blue light will flash. The two
devices will pair automatically once a
connection is established.

When you receive a call on your
smartphone while playing music with the
Durasound, the music will be muted
automatically. Overall, the unit functions
as advertised.

The sound is absolutely crisp and clear.
There is a tremendous depth and richness
to the sound which is very unusual for a unit
priced this reasonably. The reviewer requested
and received a sample in order to facilitate
this review.


The Light: A Book of Wisdom: How to Lead an Enlightened Life Filled with Love, Joy, Truth, and Beauty
The Light: A Book of Wisdom: How to Lead an Enlightened Life Filled with Love, Joy, Truth, and Beauty
by Keidi Keating
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.93
40 used & new from $7.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Conquering The Id To Reach The Higher Self, October 14, 2014
Keating explains that seeing the light is a
pattern of self discovery that introduces
us to the soul and the higher self. The
higher self transcends the physical
world and the desires of the id. In fact,
our highest duty is to cultivate the wellness
of our body and mind.

The author explains the rationale for
Feng Shui and the coloration of rooms,
as well as, the placement of furniture
for maximum effect and psychological
well being. Essentially, a home should
convey brightness and space and not
darkness or restriction. Perhaps the
most important space is a private
sanctuary for meditation.

The book has an important essay on the
development of the Chakras. These
include earth, water, fire, air, ether,
ajna and sahasrara or the crown chakra.

One of the most important chapters is
on healing the past. Essentially, each of
us has to root out the defining miseries
in our lives. We need to understand them
thoroughly so that life can move forward
without looking back. This happens when
we embrace new more positive attitudes
and new ways of thinking or contemplating.

One of the high points in the book is to
find peace through the prism of the
greater good. This is an unconditional
connection between spirit, nature and
the discovery of each other.

Overall, Keating's book is a brilliant
compendium of wisdom of how to
live life and ultimately transcend the
temporal world to see the light in us all
and experience the spiritual higher
order dimensions which are the domains
of the cosmos and unbounded energies.


The New Heaven And The New Earth
The New Heaven And The New Earth
Price: $7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Transcending the Id, October 14, 2014
Imre Vallyon's new book is an adventure beyond
the physical temporal world into the Astral world
which exists after death. Essentially, people die
and are shaken up or disoriented temporarily
by the new light.

Vallyon explains that on earth, we are limited by
incessant conditioning which prevents us from
achieving higher order domains like the light
dimension.

The author explains that the earth is billions of
years old and will continue for many more years-
probably into the billions. He explains that the
Cosmos exists as an infinite body of electromagnetic
energy.

Vallyon has a good delineation of the elements of the
new earth. These elements consist of science,
psychology, death/dying, economy, art, life's purpose,
health, healing and geo-politics.

Vallyon's definition of consciousness is interesting.
The author explains that consciousness is a
principle inside each of us that always was and always
will be.

The author's explanation of unification is an evolving
state with individual contemplation, spirituality and
fulfillment of destiny. In the highest state, there is
a unification on a communal plane which involves
personal sacrifice for the greater good.

Later, the author invokes the 9 pillars of wisdom
which consist of such things as focus, memory
of the eternal law, creative imagination, logical
explanation of the truth, a spiritual teacher and
much more.

Overall, Vallyon's book succeeds in pointing
the direction to the light realms which exist
beyond temporal reality and familiar paradigms.


Atkins Encore: A Strict Plan for Burning Fat and Losing the Weight You Deserve
Atkins Encore: A Strict Plan for Burning Fat and Losing the Weight You Deserve
Price: $0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Atkins Regimen Finally Explained At Length, October 14, 2014
Atkins Encore by Mirsad Hasic is a good recitation
of how the Atkins diet works and the elements of
weight maintenance once the ideal weight is
achieved. Mirsad explains that this process can
take months if participants honestly implement
the program faithfully.

Examples of food to eat on the Atkins program
include such things as Taco Salad, Bunless
Burgers and a Monster Salad. Essentially, the
Atkins Program is a lifestyle change aimed at
sticking with a predefined regimen.

Exercise is part of the program as is a steadfast
reduction in carbs. Essentially, Atkins strives to
get people off the blood sugar express by eating
sensibly with low carbs in mind all the time. In fact,
a low carb diet is good for candidates qualifying
for weight loss surgery.

Mirsad's book is a goldmine of good advice which
consumers should implement in conjunction with
their health care providers. Generally, health care
providers monitor such things as the A1C log for
glucose and the C-reactive Protein which is a
marker for inflammation.


Celtic Literature

Price: $0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Interpretations of Celtic Literature And Ancient Culture, September 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celtic Literature (Kindle Edition)
The presentation is loaded with ancient Celtic folklore
which pretty accurately cultivates the poetry, music,
art and stylish writing of the Celts. The author recites
his experience in visiting places like Gorsedd which
are the stalwarts of academe. In this case, it's conferring
the bard degree.

There is an interesting delineation of the Myvyrian
manuscripts which consist of 40 + volumes of poetry
with 2000 englynion or epigrammatic stanzas. The
Annals of the Four Masters is another interesting
literary conversation piece with a solid foundation
in the destruction of churches and castles of old.

Here is a sample of the poetry:
"For acuteness of valor, the Greeks.
For excessive pride, the Romans.
For dulness, the creeping Saxons;
For beauty and amorousness, the Gaedhils."

Overall, this volume is a useful critique on
Celtic literature and its origins and interconnectedness
to British, Welsh and Irish literature. The Celtic vocabulary
is complex to read for newbies to this form of writing.
In addition, the author's characterizations are overly general
for the present day discourse.


The Standard Electrical Dictionary A Popular Dictionary of Words and Terms Used in the Practice of Electrical Engineering
The Standard Electrical Dictionary A Popular Dictionary of Words and Terms Used in the Practice of Electrical Engineering
Price: $0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Engineering Resource, September 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This dictionary has some very important scientific
definitions like absolute temperature, absorption
and acoustic telegraphy. There are extensive
explanations of the concepts with relevant examples.

For instance, an acidometer is defined as a hydrometer
used to determine the specific gravity of an acid. This
volume would be useful as a supplemental reference book
for students and even practicing engineers. The presentation
would be more useful as a history of engineering text.

The author needs to do some reformatting of the
book because the contents are not presented in a
uniform manner for ease of reading. Otherwise, the
book has quite a number of interesting definitions of
classic engineering terms with plenty of examples!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Primer On Engineering, September 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an ancient book-written 94 years ago.
The advice is still very relevant for students
considering the continuing needs of the
engineering profession.

For instance, the author explains important
personal characteristics of a good engineer.
Examples are inquisitiveness, objectivity and
the ability to seek evidence-based solutions.

Horton explains the theoretical and practical
sides of engineering. He views engineering
applications in civil engineering, electrical,
mechanical and mining. More recently, the
profession has branched out into areas like
fire safety, industrial engineering, chemical
and nuclear engineering (fission/fusion).

Overall, this book would help prospective
engineering students to decide on a major
based upon the personal characteristics
required of engineers and the classic jobs
or opportunities that have been always
available. ( in some cases dating back centuries)


Edgar Cayce Encyclopedia of Healing
Edgar Cayce Encyclopedia of Healing
by Reba Ann Karp
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: $8.00
85 used & new from $0.20

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Book If Used In Consultation With Your Medical Providers, September 30, 2014
Edgar Cayce is considered to be a giant in the
field of Holistic Medicine. His protocols have
been in use for decades, although it would be
necessary to cross reference his findings to
authoritative sources like the Journal of the Lancet
and others.

His arthritis protocol would have patients eat a
simple diet with veggies, fruits, whole grains and
proteins. There would be less meat and starch.
Exercise is another mainstay in the protocol
as is colonics (certified) to discharge toxins.
Massages are helpful too according to Cayce.

The anemia protocol has patients eating vegetables,
liver, seafood, beet juice and whole grains with no
fried foods, white bread or carbonated drinks.

Overall, the Cayce protocols are interesting to
know although each patient should review the
medical program with a qualified physician and
nutritionist as needed. There are complementary
physicians who are aware of the naturally based
protocols that have authoritative support in
places like The Journal of the Lancet and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat Bolse 5A3 Port USB Car Charger, September 30, 2014
The Bolse 3-Port High Output USB Car
Charger is really smart looking.The device
comes with an attached charging cord and has
2 other USB ports for use in charging other devices.
This feature is helpful if you have more than one
household member requiring access-especially on
family trips.

Just remember that on certain units like the iPhone 5,
you need to plug the iPhone cord directly into the car
charger. The existence of multiple ports is an important
feature. There is help center support in the rare instance
where you may need assistance. [support@ mybolse dot com]
The compact shape allows for easy access and use in
a car with limited passenger space. The instruction on the
face of the Bolse carton indicates that the charger is
perfect for a Galaxy S5 S4, Note 3 2, HTC One etc.

Overall, the price is right for the functionality described.
