Know Which Books Were the First Downloaded on my New iPad

A guide by Dr. Jenn Berman "Therapist, author, radio host, psychological expert & parent of twins" (Los Angeles, CA)

Products sampled from this guide:
I recommend a lot of books on my radio show, "The Love and Sex Show with Dr. Jenn," on Sirius XM. I'm believer in bibliotherapy and am a big lover of books. A few of my listeners have been asking me which books were the first on my iPad, so I thought I would make a guide/list. Some of them are books that I love so much I just thought it would be nice to have them with me, some are new books that I am hoping to read and a few are for me to read to my children when stuck somewhere without a "real" book. These books here are my first batch of downloads.

I couldn't resist taking a look at my own books on the new format: SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years and The A to Z Guide to Raising Happy, Confident Kids. I was really thrilled to see that the electronic version of SuperBaby included all the sign language and massage illustrations.

I love the Positive Discipline Series and couldn't resist Positive Discipline for Preschoolers: For Their Early Years--Raising Children Who are Responsible, Respectful, and Resourceful (Positive Discipline Library) and Positive Discipline A-Z: 1001 Solutions to Everyday Parenting Problems (Positive Discipline Library).

I read Wendy Mogel's book The Blessing Of A Skinned Knee: Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Self-Reliant Children a long time ago. Recently I heard her speak. She was such a terrific speaker and she got me curious about her newest book The Blessing of a B Minus: Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Resilient Teenagers. I picked up Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's book in a book store a while back and found it really compelling so I downloaded 10 Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children. I love his idea that it is only through talking and connecting with our kids that we can create "an environment for inspiration and change."

There has been so much in the press about bullying and I was curious to read some new thoughts on the subject so I got Bullyproof Your Child For Life: Protect Your Child from Teasing, Taunting, and Bullying forGood and The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander: From Preschool to HighSchool--How Parents and Teachers Can Help Break the Cycle (Updated Edition).

I am very anti-princess so I was thrilled to find Cinderella Ate My Daughter.

I love reading about kids and nutrition and this is one of my favorite books The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood: Ten Ways to Get Your Family on the Right Nutritional Track (Sears Parenting Library). I thought it would be nice to be able to reread chapters.

I have been a vegetarian since I was a very little girl and witnessed a documentary about the slaughterhouses. About a year and a half ago my husband and I went vegan thanks to Kathy Freston's book Quantum Wellness Cleanse: The 21-Day Essential Guide to Healing Your Mind, Body and Spirit. I love reading informative books about vegan nutrition and issues so I downloaded two of my favorites: The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World and The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted And the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, And Long-term Health. So many people have been talking about Skinny Bitch that I finally broke down and bought it. I was very intrigued by Thrive Fitness: The Vegan-Based Training Program for Maximum Strength, Health, and Fitness because I have terrible endurance and I was really fascinated that the author, who said he has terrible endurance as a child, trained himself to become a professional Ironman triathalete. It sounded very inspiring.

Geneen Roth is one of my favorite authors. I particularly love her books Breaking Free from Emotional Eating and When Food Is Love: Exploring the Relationship Between Eating and Intimacy. I have been wanted to read her newest book Lost and Found: Unexpected Revelations About Food and Money.

I love Martin Seligman's work and recently bought his newest book Flourish: A Visionary New Understanding of Happiness and Well-being but thought it would be nice to reread his older book Authentic Happiness: Using the New Positive Psychology to Realize Your Potential for Lasting Fulfillment. I love Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, now if I could only pronounce his name! The book Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, Revised Edition looked intriguing. Along those lines, I downloaded the audio version of Outliers: The Story of Success in it's enirety. I have been wanting to read the classics like The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change and How To Win Friends and Influence People. Every time I have read an excerpt from Katie Couric's book The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons from Extraordinary Lives I think to myself "I should get that," so I did.

I always love Harville Hendrix and John Gottman so I had to include Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples, 20th Anniversary Edition and The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work: A Practical Guide from the Country's Foremost Relationship Expert.

I decided to get a few books for the kids. I am not a fan of kids having screentime but I do like the idea of being able to read to them any time or any place we might be stuck so I downloaded Mary Had a Little Jam and Other Silly Rhymes, Winnie the Pooh (mostly because it was free), I Think, I Am!: Teaching Kids the Power of Affirmations and The Secret Garden.

So far I am really enjoying having books in my iPad and really looking forward to reading and rereading these books. I'd love to hear about your favs too. You can find me on facebook or twitter at DrJennBerman.
