Summary

Between your full-length mirror and high-school biology class, you probably think you know a lot about the human body. While it's true that we live in an age when we're as obsessed with our bodies as we are with celebrity hairstyles, the reality is that most of us know very little about what chugs, churns, and thumps throughout this miraculous, scientific, and artistic system of anatomy. Yes, you've owned your skin-covered shell for decades, but you probably know more about your cell-phone plan than you do about your own body. When it comes to your longevity and quality of life, understanding your internal systems gives you the power, authority, and ability to live a healthier, younger, and better life. 
The flagship book of the YOU series, which spawned three subsequent New York Times bestsellers, has now been expanded and updated to make you understand your body even better—perhaps too well. 
YOU: The Owner's Manual, Updated and Expanded Edition challenges your preconceived notions about how the human body works and ages, then takes you on a tour through all of the highways, back roads, and landmarks inside of you. In this update, the doctors have included a new chapter on the liver and pancreas, which will finally demystify the most exotic parts of our bodies; a new workout chapter that will finally get you moving; and nearly one hundred Q&As asked by you, the reader. It has also been updated throughout to give you up-to-the-minute know-how to not just understand what to do to keep fit, but also why and how.  
The book opens with a quiz, "How Well Do You Know Your Body?," which sets the stage for the following chapters. After taking the quiz, you'll learn about all of your blood-pumping, food-digesting, and keys-remembering systems and organs, including the heart, brain, lungs, immune system, bones, and sensory organs. Each chapter also contains common myths of the particular body part that the authors will debunk. 
Just as important, you'll get the facts and advice you need to keep your body running long and strong. You'll find out how diseases start and how they affect your body—as well as advice on how to prevent and beat conditions that threaten your quality of life. Complete with exercise tips, nutritional guidelines, simple lifestyle changes, and alternative approaches, YOU: The Owner's Manual, Updated and Expanded Edition gives you an easy, comprehensive, and life-changing how-to plan for fending off the gremlins of aging. To top it off, this new edition includes even more great-tasting and calorie-saving recipes as part of the Owner's Manual Diet—an eating plan that is designed with only one goal in mind: to help you live a younger life. 
Welcome to your body. Why don't you come on in and take a look around?

    In Rich Dad's Conspiracy of the Rich, Robert Kiyosaki explores why many people are waiting for the political and financial systems of the world to change. He shares his opinion that it’s easier to change yourself than to wait for our leaders and systems to change.Is it time for you to take control of your money and your financial future? Is it time to find out what those who control the financial world don't want you to know? Do you want complex and confusing financial concepts to be made simple? If you answered "yes" to these questions, then this book is for you.In 1971, after President Nixon took the U.S. dollar off the gold standard, the rules of money changed. And today, money is no longer money. That is why the first new rule of money is Money is knowledge.Robert Kiyosaki wrote this book for those who want to increase their financial knowledge and take control of their lives.According to Kiyosaki: We cannot see the world of the future with our eyes. “The world of the future is invisible, and we have to see it with our minds.”Kiyosaki sees a new economy and new definitions of wealth. He believes that there will be new millionaires and billionaires. Money will be made at ultrahigh speed. The question is: Will you be among the new rich, or the new poor?The old economy, the economy as we knew it, is not coming back. A new economy is being born, an economy that will be led by kids born after 1990, young people who only know the invisible, high-speed world of the future.

    Ask yourself -- What would you want if you could command the universe to hand it to you? Fame? Fortune? Heath? Romance? Enlightenment? At last -- for the first time since 1939 -- a famous mystic's recipe for guaranteed success is revealed in the little masterpiece called "At Your Command." Neville was a popular author and speaker who taught practical metaphysics beginning in the Great Depression of the 1930s. His methods influenced countless people, from prolific writer Joseph Murphy to bestselling author Dr. Joe Vitale, author of the #1 bestseller, The Attractor Factor.

    Getting caught in unwanted thoughts and emotions can feel like an inevitable part of life. But Easwaran, who taught meditation for nearly 40 years, shows a way to break free.Just as a fitness routine can result in a strong, supple body, spiritual disciplines can shape a secure personality and a resilient, loving mind.And opportunities to grow stronger spiritually arise not only during meditation but throughout the day. Working with difficult colleagues, going out to eat, and responding to a child’s needs are all occasions to try out different, wiser choices.With humor and empathy, Easwaran places timeless teachings from the Buddha and other mystics into contemporary scenes — watching a juggler on the street, taking a tennis lesson, going to the theater. Training the mind is life’s biggest adventure, one that brings deepening relationships, increasing vitality, and a greater sense of purpose.
