You’ll do anything for her – A New Relationship Perspective – by Dr. Maureen E. Hosier & Berta Hosier Conger (Book Review #177)

  This review was written for Online Book Club “I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.” This book was an “OnlineBookClub.org Book of the Day.” You’ll do anything for her is a self – help book about relationships and how to prevent yourself from losing your existence in it. This is not a book that you can use instead of going to therapy. It isn’t the kind of assistance that is needed by any official governing body either. The book []

I Will Be Happy Once _____ Happens by Emily Christopher (Book Review #170)

This review was kindly requested by Emily Christopher. I Will Be Happy Once _____ Happens is a short book written about happiness and how to achieve it. While I have reviewed and featured many psychological books referencing the same concept, I found this one to be equally enjoyable to read. I believe that the book would have benefited from more descriptive content, as it only falls under 64 pages. I felt that the increase in content would have made the book to []

Blind to Succeed by Michael Atkins (Book Review #172)

This review was kindly requested by Michael Atkins.  Every now and again in life, you need something influential to pick you up and to tell you that everything is going to be okay. At times, things do work against you and no matter how much you try; it feels as if every door does get slammed in your face. Blind to Succeed is in my opinion, just the right book to read at such a time. From the beginning of the book, []

He saw what was happening and tried to pull the car out of the swerve, but instead, we started to flip the first of four []
