Book Reviews from the Harper College Library   Leave a comment

As we approach the calorie packed holidays with eager utensils, there is no better time to discuss the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. With the final pieces of Halloween candy now devoured, we have little time to recoup before we plate our tables with homemade sausage stuffing and toasted marshmallow yams. If your New Year’s resolutions often involve waist management, you might benefit from an introduction to bestselling authors of the “YOU” series, Doctors Michael F. Roizen and Mehmet C. Oz.

Frequently featured on the Discovery Health Channel and Oprah, Dr’s Roizen and Oz have made superheroes out of nutrition, vitamins, exercise and you! Here’s a series of books that actually speak to the reader in motivating no-nonsense terminology with tips on reaching diet and exercise goals, eating essential foods, using stress management techniques and more!

If you’ve always wanted to be healthy but were convinced you didn’t have the time, patience, money or energy, (and let’s face it, enjoy the taste of fatty foods!) these books will satiate, once and for all, your extra thick chip dip craving. Read:

    This Week’s Book Review   Leave a comment

    This week’s # 1 pick is: Cesar Millan’s, Be the Pack Leader: Use Cesar’s Way to Transform Your Dog–and Your Life. Cesar does it again, if you finished Cesar’s Way, (also in the Harper Library) wanting more insight into your dog’s mind and psyche, this is your bone to gnaw on! I don’t have to tell you that Cesar hosts National Geographic’s Dog Whisperer TV program–by this time we all know that his books are just as unique and brilliant as his on air personality. Cesar’s technique of using “calm-assertive energy” to manage unstable dogs has revolutionized the dog world. This book is not just for dog owners and dog lovers, but for anyone with a love of animals with an interest in animal psychology. There is only one Cesar, he rehabilitates dogs and trains people.
