This is a lighthearted
and fun book about the serious benefits of play. Knowing
Barbara personally, I know that she wrote this book from
her heart and her own personal experiences. Barbara walks
her talk or should I say plays her play. One only has
to meet Barbara to know that she is play in action. She
carries with her a strange array of toys and one never
knows when she might breakout into something playful and
amusing. I loved the book because it so much reflected
what I know to be true about Barbara. She makes play a
part of her life and she encourages other to do so too.
Extraordinary Success as a Coach is the one book I would
have given anything to have had available to me as I was
trying to navigate my way from successful author and speaker
to that of a successful coach. Having this book would have
saved me years of trial and error and earned me tens of
thousands of dollars in the process. This is an essential
resource for anyone wanting to have a successful full or
part time coaching business." Jim Donovan, Author,
Reclaim Your Life.

to the unabridged audio tape version of the book
read by Judith Ivey. Ms. Ivey brings individual characters
to life using only her voice in an incredible, marvelous
way. The book is great fun, but the storyteller makes the
experience even better.
I admit it; I bought this book based on the cover alone.
I picked the book up in an airport bookstore knowing nothing
I had a two-hour layover
so I decided to pick up a book to read during the trip
back home. I went right to the self-help books (force
of habit). Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted this
book with a picture of a Yorkshire terrier in a box. I
went over and looked at the book and I set it back down.
After all, I thought, I should get a real book, a book
that would provide a learning experience or something
like that, but that little Yorkie on the cover had stolen
my heart. I went back and bought the book.
And I am glad I did. It
is one of the sweetest books and has a great story to
it. The author is Cindy Adams the New York Post gossip
columnist. The story is about how a puppy helped her heal
and cope with the death of her husband. They were married
40 years. I cried, I laughed, I shook my head and I related
to this funny and touching story. I finished reading the
book by the time I got home.
This is a "Leave
a smile on your face" book, a must read for a lazy
day or a long flight home.
I started a new hobby,
"sweepstaking." I actually had a strange experience
that started me on this path. I was taking my morning
walk when the voice in my head said, "If you enter
a contest you will win a car." This was a strange
thought to me because I have never been one to enter contests
or sweepstakes. During my walk, I began to think about
this and how that might work. I wondered if there were
contests that gave away cars and how one might find out
about them. By the time I got home, I was truly intrigued.
I was blessed with the
gift of knowing that anything I want to know is in a book
somewhere. I now have updated this to know that any information
I want to know is in a book somewhere on the Internet.
I went right to the Internet, put in "How to Enter
Contests" and came up with the book, Contest Queen
by Carol Shaffer. Carol has won over $150,000 worth of
goods in seven years. She is truly amazing. The book was
well written and informative.
If you want to learn more
about how to enter contests and sweepstakes get the book.
It is an easy read and will give you a good idea whether
this is the hobby for you.
