and Turn Your Life Around

by Cheries Carter-Scott, PhD

Living Fearlessly:
Bringing Out Your Inner Soul Strength

by Paramahansa Yogananda

Description: The book delivers a single message designed to set you free from fear and its debilitating effects in your life. That message is to recognize and connect fully to your own divine source, and how this omniscient presence is within you, your heart and soul at all times and that, as such, you are never alone.

Sidís Comments: Yogananda has written many great books each succesfully merging the best of the Eastern and Western spiritual teachings.  Living Fearlessly is a quick and insightful read on overcoming fear by developing greater faith and trust in the spiritual.


Please Understand Me:
Character and Temperament Types

by David Keirsey & Marilyn Bates

Description: Rather than trying to 'change' your mate, your coworkers or a family member, Keirsey and Bates argue that these differences are a good thing and maintain that, not only is it impossible to truly change others, it's much more important to understand and affirm their differences. This book is a guide for putting an end to trying to change others and starting on the path to acceptance.

Sidís Comments: This is a social style profile (The Myers Briggs) which has been around for decades. The book allows for nine people to take the test and get their score. An interesting exercise that will help you understand some of the basic differences in how people approach life.

Leslie Nielsenís Stupid Little Golf Book
by Leslie Nielsen & Henry Beard

Description: Comedic actor and self-proclaimed 'guru of bad golf' Leslie Nielsen and former National Lampoon editor Henry Beard open the book with hints on the golfer's stance, grip and sighting, all guaranteed to make you laugh but do nothing to actually improve your game.  They scoff at the notion of taking lessons from a pro but offer up various ways of undermining a fellow player's morale and suggest that readers always appoint themselves scorekeeper and avoid thinking of the ball as an ailment.

Sidís Comments: If youíre a golfer and enjoy slapstick humor, this book is hilarious! It may be out of print but there are used copies available.
