4.0 out of 5 stars Intense and interesting..., April 3, 2013
As an avid reader I often find books predictable. This book was a happy exception! I dislike reading review spoilers so I won't include any here but suffice it to say that there were many surprises in this storyline. There were a few times I actually got goosebumps. It was a VERY enjoyable diversion from the typical mom duties of laundry and dishes - highly recommended!

Influence by Robert B. Cialdini -  A Concise Understanding in 30 Minutes (30 Minute Expert Series)
Influence by Robert B. Cialdini - A Concise Understanding in 30 Minutes (30 Minute Expert Series)

5.0 out of 5 stars SMART summary of important book..., February 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Dr. Robert Cialdini's New York Times best seller, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, is considered a business essential as one of the most influential marketing texts describing the behaviors associated with why people say `yes'.

Why read a summary instead of the original? The concise nature of the book and the quality of the information provide the ability to gain the insights of the original in very little time! The chapters are inventively structured to assure that the reader understands and retains the information with key points highlighted at the end of each chapter.

Everyone wants to have business savvy and consumer smarts. The book's main concept is that we have automatic reactions to specific stimuli or situations such as reciprocation where we want to do something for someone who has done something for us. In our fast paced society these mindless responses serve a purpose. However, those looking to influence your choices may manipulate you into making decisions against your best interests.

This common sense book provides helpful insights into how our instinctive behavior puts us at risk of manipulation and how to avoid it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid science, sensible exercise, simple meal plans, so many recipes!, October 17, 2012
If you're concerned about your health then you've doubt heard about the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet developed through the National Institutes of Health. This book provides the details you may have missed in shorter articles or news clips. The health benefits are many ~ not only lowering blood pressure and hypertension but also decreasing risks of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. The research is sound and extensive.

The best thing about this high fiber, low fat diet is that we CAN do it! Up your intake of high fiber grains, fruits and veggies, swap protein to lean sources and you've got the essentials down. The exercise plans with cardio and strength training are both helpful & feasible.

Amazingly this book is as much a cookbook as a diet plan. There are FIVE chapters of recipes! Yeah! These recipes, packed with familiar, inexpensive ingredients, are so good even your non-dieting family members will eat them (kids too!) - omelets, French toast, Dijon pork chops, garlic basil shrimp, salads, beef stew, seafood fettuccine, coffee cake, chocolate mocha mousse, & more!

Love this diet - solid science, sensible exercise, simple meal plans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious food, delectable dining and weight loss? - Marvelously Mediterranean!, October 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Here's a healthy way to eat that not only helps you lose weight but also improves your mood, heart health, brain function, cholesterol and blood pressure levels without counting calories or eating bland, tasteless food. Sounds almost too good to be true but the Mediterranean diet, endorsed by Mayo Clinic, is scientifically proven to be safe, effective, extremely healthy and temptingly delicious. Folks living in coastal areas of Greece, Italy and Spain have long understood how to eat succulent food that is great for you. They choose flavorful, seasonal entrees and have a care towards making each meal delightful. This guide provides a new food pyramid with a focused way of eating local fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains - heavy flavorful whole grain breads, seafood and fish, beans, legumes and nuts, olive over other oils, fresh herbs over salt and less dairy and meat. The diet is high in vitamins, healthy fat, fiber and antioxidants. It encourages succulent eating and variety, trying new things, use of small snacks and meals and mostly embracing the pleasure in your food. A joyful diet... something everyone can swallow!

4.0 out of 5 stars Odds in your favor and recipes filled with flavor!, October 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Hunger Games inspired cookbook is full of fun, inventive recipes based on the popular books. Fans will love references to their favorite scenes and characters. Each chapter focuses on part of the story. For example, The Woods and The Hearth, includes recipes from the home district with food that Katniss and Gale would provide to their families by hunting, gathering, or through trade. Prim's Goat Cheese Gifts is a simple tasty appetizer representing when Prim leaves goat cheese wrapped in basil for Katniss. Other chapters include food Katniss could encounter during her time on the train, in the capital and during the games. The hot chocolate recipe, from the train chapter, includes brown sugar. It's sure to become a kid fave. The 6th chapter includes recipes from the first book. The Cake on Fire, based on Katniss, the girl on fire, would be perfect for a Hunger Games party. Later chapters include equally tasty and amusing recipes from Catching Fire and The Mocking Jay. The Authenticity for the Adventurous recipes include mush, rabbit and unusual fare befitting this daring title. With these delightful recipes clearly the odds will be ever in your favor!
