Gosh where can I start. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has really opened my mind to the endless possibilities for me to improve my life through the most normal and natural process of all - breathing!

When I first tried the 6 breaths per minute exercise I was surprised to feel the effects almost immediately. It is now a permanent part of my daily activity.

The author explains things in a very clear and concise way. This is very good for someone like me who is new to breath work. But yet it works for all levels of breath work enthusiates. I like the fact that the breath work doesn't require anything other than your commitment.

I am working on some of the other breathing techniques he discusses and I look forward to reaping the benefits of the exercises.

I would definitely recommend this book to all who breathe...

When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it's there. There's no explanation, no website - just a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it's just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make?

When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

I initally thought this book was a bit full on and so dipped in and out of it over a few months. But now having completed it I would give it 10 stars. It gave me a better understanding of our spiritual connection God and makes several references to Jesus Christ. As a Christian it opened my mind to understanding some of the questions I had about my faith.

You might think laziness, lack of willpower, and/or low motivation are to blame for the fact that you aren't achieving your goals. But fascinating research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology has revealed another, far more likely possibility. One with the potential to transform your life in a dramatic way.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It explains very clearly and concisely the mechanisms (emotional and biological) involved in why we are unsuccessful or procrastinate or lack confidence. I, having studied biochemistry and pharmacy, was intrigued with his scientific explanations at a cellular level. It also offers ways to eliminate or reduce issues one mayhave with achiving one's goals. I will be implementing his strategies as they seem to be realistic approaches to solving my problems and achiving my personal goals.

Many people are tired of modern medicine and the harmful side effects that they can bring, but herbal antibiotics and antivirals are easy to use when you are using them properly. However, there are risks and side effects with herbal antibiotics and antivirals as well. Still, they have many fewer side effects than modern medicine.

This book was a total disappointment. For a start I hated the computerised monotone voice of the natrator. Then the content really was repetitive and inadequate, it only touched on less than 5 herbs in about chapter 8. Infact they were not true herbs. It is definitely refund material.

Most of us believe that we will finally feel satisfied and content with our lives when we get the good news we have been waiting for, find a healthy relationship, or achieve one of our personal goals. However, this rarely happens. Good fortune is often followed by negative emotions that overtake us and result in destructive behaviors.
