Summary

Written by two best friends, the book is a product of real girl talk between BFFs about the truths of pregnancy, as seen from a mom who went through it and her best friend who observed from the sidelines. It conveys a sense of female camaraderie over an exclusively female topic and reclaims it above the myriad of how-to, self-help maternity guides out there. This book is for moms and non-moms—all women—in the vein of The Girlfriends’ Guide to Pregnancy (2007, half a million copies sold).

In line with strong media messages about body positivity and women’s rights, this book champions the pregnant woman—and how it’s okay to show (and laugh at) the dirtier, but just as real, side of pregnancy. The ideal book for the mom-to-be who wants a light-hearted, empathetic beachside read away from her stresses

A great baby shower gift from one woman to another, with possible book club potential, especially for gatherings of new moms or moms-to-be

    Attraction Mantra Secrets

    Simply  put,  Attraction   Mantra  Secrets  is  the  ability  to  use  one's thoughts and intentions to attract things they want. The theory behind the Attraction Mantra Secrets is that we create our own realities. We are the magnet that attracts our reality. It uses the power of mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. This explains the significance of focusing on the positive things that you want to attract.   
    The  power  of  the  Attraction  Mantra  Secrets  lies  in  the  fact  that whatever  you  think  about  and  believe  will  ultimately  become  the reality you experience. 
    On the other hand, if you choose to focus on the negative doom and gloom you will remain under that cloud.  Therefore, starve the negative thoughts by removing your attention. 
    By  transforming  your  mindset  to  focus  on  what  you  want,  rather  than 
    what you don’t have, you will come to view the world in a different way. 
    Each  thought  you  have  will  bring  you  closer  to  your  goal,  rather  than 
    bringing you down and focusing you on what you might never have. 
    Once  you  understand   the  power  of  your  thought  and  direct  this powerful tool in the direction of things that you desire, then you will discover that the action part of your life is the way you enjoy what you have created through your thoughts.  
    Although  the  theory  behind  the  Attraction  Mantra  Secrets  is  very simple,   putting   it  into  practice   on  a  conscious   level  takes  work. Negative and limiting belief systems are buried deep inside us. They are the ones which stop you from succeeding, achieving, and manifesting.

    When I think about what Yoga has contributed to my Life,
    there are many aspects that enter my mind. I truly think of
    an Ajarn and two wonderful Doctors that live this life so completely that
    even their perception in this book will be a revelation for some. It was
    for me. I give Gratitude to these wonderful individuals. For me the Yogic
    way of life is about the flow. It is allowing a moment by movement into
    your days. When you read this book, remember that your first read will be
    emotional and the second analytical. It will take you through the structure
    of changing your days by focusing on the mind body connection with the
    Spirit directing your manifestations in a positive way that is for your greatest
    good and higher purpose. It has been a journey of self, and continues to be.
    Once you read this book and begin to practice the traditional and cultural,
    yes I said cultural, methods of adaptation of self, you will begin to discover
    who the true you can become.
    The Doctors Yardi and I have developed this book to teach Ayurveda
    for the world. We will cover chanting, Asanas, Ayurveda Body Typing,
    nutrition, concepts of Yoga, philosophy of Ayurveda, medical effects on
    the body, Pranayama, meditation, and more. We will then tie it all together
    with the Spiritual influence that will be felt in the frequency of the body as
    it raises your awareness.
    Evolution has, to date, meant extinction to most species, but Ayurveda
    has always survived. It is a way of life, a science, called YOG!

    Immune - How Your Body Defends...

    The human body is like an exceedingly well-fortified castle, defended by billions of soldiers – some live for less than a day, others remember battles for decades, but all are essential in protecting us from disease. This hidden army is our immune system, and without it we could not survive the eternal war between our microscopic enemies and ourselves. 
     
    Immune explores the incredible arsenal that lives within us – how it knows what to attack and what to defend, and how it kills everything from the common cold virus to plague bacteria. We see what happens when the immune system turns on us, and how life is impossible without its protection. We learn how diseases try to evade the immune system and exploit its vulnerabilities, and we discover how scientists are designing new drugs to harness the power of the system to fight disease.  
     
    Do transplants ever reject their new bodies? What is pus? How can your body make more antibodies than there are stars in our galaxy? Why is cancer so hard for our immune system to fight? Why do flu outbreaks cause a spike in sleep disorders? Can we smell someone else's immune system, and does that help us subconsciously decide who we fall in love with? In this book, Catherine Carver answers all of these compelling questions, and many more besides. 
     
    Drawing on everything from ancient Egyptian medical texts to cutting-edge medical science, Immune will take you on an adventure packed with weird and wonderful revelations about your own internal defensive system.
