Coffee is always in the press with it's good, it's bad argument. This book clearly spells out the facts on what coffee is and is...n't. Suppose you have a heart condition and your cardiologist says you should stop. Should you. Did you make the right choice or did you make things worse. Did the doctor render his / her opinion or did they just tell you some outdated fact. Was it specific to your Atrial Fibrillation or Stroke. The point I'm laboring to make is we should make calculated decisions to help ourselves that this book, chapter after chapter tells you whether coffee will help your specific condition and point you to modern research that proves the point. Empower yourself, educate yourself and protect yourself with the facts. Kind regards, Allen Huff, BS, DC read more

Letter Sounds to Help Parents Help Their Children: Not a Workbook, But a Work-With Book
In this provocative history of parenting, Harry Hendrick analyzes the social and economic reasons behind parenting trends. He show...s how broader social changes, including neoliberalism, feminism, the collapse of the social-democratic ideal, and the â new behaviorism,â have led to the rise of the anxious and narcissistic parent. The book charts the shift from the liberal and progressive parenting styles of the 1940s through the â 70s to the more behavioral, punitive, and managerial methods of childrearing today, made popular by so-called experts like Gina Ford and Supernanny Jo Frost andâ in the United Kingdomâ by New Labour parent education programs. This trend, Hendrick argues, is symptomatic of the sour, mean-spirited, and vindictive social norms found throughout society today. It undermines the better instincts of parents and, therefore, damages parent-child relationships. Instead, he proposes, parents should focus on understanding and helping their children as they do the hard work of growing up. read more
