Breastfeeding is natural, but it is not entirely instinctive for either mothers or babies. The Nursing Mother's Companion has been among the best-selling books on breastfeeding for over 30 years, with over 1,000,000 copies sold. It is respected and recommended by professionals, including The International Lactation Consultant Association, T. Berry Brazelton, and The American Academy of Pediatrics, and is well loved by new parents for its encouraging and accessible style.

The best book about breastfeeding I found. I now wish I read it earlier, I would have a totally different story to tell about the first 2 months with my baby.

This book is both a lesson in true grit and determination, but its goal is one that is attainable. Andy isn't a sporting superstar, he holds down a nine-to-five job and all the pressures that go with it; he isn’t blessed with speed and talent; there are no multi-million pound sponsorship deals; yet this remarkable "common man" is inspiring in a way that some of today’s sporting superstars have forgotten how to be.

As English is not my first language the reader did not bother me ( i am referring here at the other reviews) The story is great, fun and well written...so really loved it and would read/ listen to the next one from the same author (Can't Sleep, Can't Train, Can't Stop).

Triathlon for the Every Woman is a hilarious, fun and informative read - full of expert advice, training tips, and stories to turn a tired, busy woman into a tired, busy woman triathlete - no matter her size, age, or place in life. Meredith Atwood, an overweight and overworked wife, mother, and attorney, went from the couch to the finish of a half Ironman triathlon in a little over a year. Her book, full of contributions from expert coaches, nutritionists and athletes, takes the reader through the disciplines of swimming, biking and running.

This book is not for women only, but for anyone who knows nothing about triathlons and believes that they cannot do it or that partecipating in a thriatlon is for other people...
Telling her personal story with humour the author made me understand that I can do it too...that I can get there too,
She gives every detail you need to know about triathlons to actually get set for one, from gear to training ideas to any possible information and trick.
good read.

Would you listen to The Wisdom of Your Cells again? Why?

Bruce Lipton is a fantastic author and he has the genius to make easy to understand to everyone very complex scientific concepts.

What did you like best about this story?

the author brings logic, rationality and science into meeting with the reality of being human beings

Any additional comments?

Probably the best book I listened to this year.

Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

If you could sum up Wheat Belly in three words, what would they be?

This is the scientifc based, best book ever about the truth about wheat, and the most simple solution to 90% most common health problems of our moder society.
As soon as i listened to this I bought the actual paper book. It require to be read carefully.
Got off wheat and lost the belly and have no arthritis any longer, nor i feel tired...

I wanted to learn about feng shui and I came across this amazing life changing book.

It’s not the kind of book that will advise you where to place a mirror or where your bed is suppose to be, but goes beyond this issues to something deeper about us and our “stuff” and at what level it can really affect our lives, adding clear advice how to get on.

I now listened to it many times, followed the advice and seeing improvements in my life happening so fast!

Karen Kingston has such pleasurable writing style that makes you listen blissfully to the most valuable information I have received in years.

I can certainly affirm everyone would see their life extraordinarily improved by listen to this book.

This audio recording of a interview or talk by James Redfield has very pour audio quality. It is related to the original book but adds nothing to the original, might be due to the quality of the audio. I would read the Tenth Insight, and forget about this.

In The Art of Presence, Eckhart guides you through seven hours of transformational insights that allow "presence to naturally arise" in you. With his one-of-a-kind instruction, you will learn how to ground yourself in the vibrancy of your "inner body" while simultaneously breaking free from the illusion of separation from the outside world.
