Who would have thought a health and fitness book would be so absorbing. This is the genre of book I usually flip through hoping to pick up an interesting tip or two. But once I started reading Susan’s story, I couldn’t put it down. Her story and her journey are inspirational. Her enthusiasm is infectious.

Ben Sherman

Waking up at 3am, paralysed down the right side of her body and unable to speak, Susan Kitson was rushed to hospital. A week later, after a devastating diagnosis, she embarked on a journey to regain health. Using her body as a Petri dish, she experimented with different approaches to nutrition and exercise. During the next five years she researched and trialled many foods and different ways of living. Discarding what didn’t help and improving upon what did, the 21 steps to glowing health were developed.

Introducing herself with a brief but candid overview of what started her on her journey to health, she goes on to clearly guide the reader through each of the 21 steps. The steps are practical, achievable, and can be incorporated into anyone’s life, in any order, including as few or as many as desired.

Here We Are & There We Go – Teaching and Traveling with Kids in Tow

Jill Dobbe

Price: FREE

This book deals with a family teaching abroad for several years while raising their two young children. The adventurous parents, who wanted something different, had the courage to do what most of us only dream of. They made their dreams come true. What better life education could two young kids ask for than to grow up traveling the world and learning different cultures and languages. From their first experience on the island of Guam to exotic Singapore to the vast continent of Africa and then to Mexico, following all the ups and downs of this young family is inspiring. I love how they talk about the reverse culture shock of coming back home. I can’t believe that people were bored hearing about their adventures. If they lived close to me I would bug them so much to hear about their experiences they would be tired of talking about it. I can just imagine what wonderful well rounded kids they have. I think this book is a must for anyone who desires to travel and live abroad. This book get an all around 5 star review.

Voracious Reader

A heartwarming travel memoir filled with temper tantrums, disorienting jetlag, and zany, once-in-a-lifetime family adventures. Who says you can’t travel with kids? Dan and I find out we can do just that as we set off with our two very young kids, first to live and work on an island far out in the Pacific, then on to the continent of Africa with a few stops in between. Armed with strollers, diapers, and too much luggage, we travel to over twenty-five countries throughout a ten year span, while working together as international overseas educators. After surviving typhoon Yuri, almost being mauled by lions, and, being nearly shot by a presidential guard, we happily endure all of the good times and bad, while living life to the fullest. A decade’s worth of experiences and lifelong memories remain with us, as we return to the U.S., now with two teenagers in tow, and begin to experience our very own version of reverse culture shock.

Seeing through the Fog: Hope When Your World Falls Apart

Ed Dobson

Price: FREE

I learned a lot from this book which helped to strengthen my Christian faith. I have friends who are helped by his statement that “God can always heal, but he doesn’t always cure.” Like Ed Dobson, they too have found peace without finding a cure.

J Keillor

An exploration of identity and faith, Seeing Through the Fog invites readers to a vibrant life, an expectant life, a life of joy in each new morning.

Pastor Ed Dobson has spent his life preaching sermons, but this book is not a sermon. He has spent more than ten years with a debilitating illness, but this book is not about grief. He has found joy in the midst of sorrow, but this book is not about looking on the bright side.

Seeing Through the Fog is about living well when you realize you can’t live forever. It is about having gratitude for each sunrise, birthday, and moment of knowing God more. It is about holding hope when circumstances hold pain.

With stories, wisdom and unique content distinct from the popular film series about Ed, Seeing Through the Fog will encourage readers in their own difficulties and give them hope for their future.

Donna Wilson

As a graduate of BrainSMART, I highly recommend their program and publications.

BrainSMART is for all teachers, no matter the subject or grade. You won’t be disappointed!

Niki G.

“I’m going to be the boss of my brain!” a young student declares after being taught cognitive skills that are useful in guiding children to become self-directed learners. Explicit instruction on strategies to help students “learn how to learn” is a key aspect of the M.S. and Ed.S. degree programs with a major in Brain-Based Teaching featured in this book. You’ll discover how graduates of these programs transfer what they’ve learned into their professional practice—and how applying their studies has enhanced student learning. These graduate degree programs are among the first of their kind to apply the implications of mind, brain, and education research to classroom practice. Read Effective Teaching, Successful Students to discover, as just a few examples, how and why:

Students in Texas elementary teacher Diane Dahl’s class gained five months in reading skills in just two and a half months.

Preschool teacher Gina Cabadaidis engages 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds in playful activities that are developing their social and problem-solving skills.

High school teacher and coach Jeremy Green guides his teenage students to make the most of their brains’ capacity to master academic challenges—even in those subjects where they have previously struggled.

K-5 students in Melissa Smith’s English as a Second Language class are excited about leaving recess to join in engaging activities that help them develop fluency in their new language.

Reading specialist Linda Clark applies differentiated instructional techniques to help middle schoolers who struggle with reading recognize their potential to take charge of their behaviors and learning outcomes.

A design student at Austin Community College thanked instructor Linda Smarzik for fostering a “safe” environment for adults developing new creative skills.

Parent educator Angel Rodriguez shares learning strategies to help parents and grandparents become effective partners in their children’s education.

The degrees are offered online through Nova Southeastern University’s Abraham S. Fischler School of Education, which is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Since these programs were launched in 2001, more than 3,000 teachers and administrators from 48 states, from Canada, and from countries in Europe and Asia have enrolled in these innovative programs to earn their Master’s Degree with a Major in Brain-Based Teaching (Concentrations in Learning and Teaching or Reading and Literacy) and/or their Educational Specialist’s Degree with a Major in Brain-Based Teaching (Concentration in Teacher Leadership).

Selecting the best graduate degree program to pursue is a big decision for educators. The inspiring personal stories in this text offer an insider’s view of how earning your graduate degree can equip you with new research-based teaching strategies and reignite your passion for teaching. If you’re a graduate of these programs, you’ll find a variety of examples of how fellow educators are applying what they’ve learned with students of all ages in traditional and virtual school settings. And you’ll discover how earning these degrees equip graduates to take on new roles and responsibilities as teacher leaders and instructional mentors.

Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Seasoned America

Paul Prudhomme

Price: 99 cents

I’ve used this book for years. Some people rely on stricly fresh ingredients, others like to cook with dried spices. Prudhomme’s a big dried spice guy. Yes, garlic purists will be aghast that he uses garlic powder. But these recipes work, and he does a great job of coming up with recipes that people will actually use. The dishes are NEVER bland and the flavors are often very complex and comingle well. His technique is to use the same spice mixture in different ways- frying some in oil, adding some in the middle of the cooking, adding more just before serving, et al- and it really helps add complexity and richer flavor to a dish! Some of these recipes are clunkers, as are many in most cookbooks, but I return time and time again to a fair amount of these recipes. My biggest critique- his recipes are fairly straightforward, but they are sometimes unnecessarily complicated- Yyou can streamline them without poor results. For instance, use canned broth in the Tetrazini recipe and you will save yourself about three hours. Also, I really think that you can make his Kentucky Burgoo in less than two days, but that’s actually what the recipe calls for! But you’ve already made many of the dishes in this book before, only without all the flavor. Paul was “kicking it up a notch” long before Emeril got to New Orleans. Buy a cheap used copy and tell me that it wasn’t one of the best investments you’ve ever made after you’ve tried three of the recipes! My favorite recipe: Basque Chicken and Shrimp with Wine. Fantastic!

Mark A. Healy

When one of America’s most talented and best loved chefs reinterprets the great American classics, the result is Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Seasoned America, a beautifully illustrated collection of American favorites made even better.

In his new book, Chef Paul works his culinary magic on America’s classic regional recipes–San Francisco cioppino, Texas chili, Maryland crab cakes, for example. The results are more than 150 recipes that represent a whole new way of interpreting traditional American cooking. Special sections encourage home cooks to experiment and take risks for the sheer taste of it.
