Rethink Happy: An Entrepreneur’s Journey Toward Finding Authentic Joy by Doug Kisgen (Book Review #53)

This review is written for Online Book Club. “I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.” Although this book is a fictional story, it comes from a very real place. The Author uses two characters in his tale to express and communicate his message to the reader. The significance of the message is way more useful than the story, however, sometimes, I believe people listen and learn faster and more effectively when it is said in a tale rather than a []

Erasing Scars by Dr. James D. Okun MD, Evangelita Goodwell (Book Review #21)

  “Millions of Americans are afflicted with genital herpes with tens of thousands of new cases being reported each year. This ravaging disease afflicts its sufferers with both physical and emotional scarring, and while effective treatments for the physical aspects of the disease have been developed in recent years, relatively scant attention has been given to the emotional trauma associated with the disease.

On Death & Dying by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (Book Review #15)

Summary “One of the most important psychological studies of the late twentieth century, On Death and Dying grew out of Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’s famous interdisciplinary seminar on death, life, and transition. In this remarkable book, Dr. Kübler-Ross first explored the now-famous five stages of death: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Through sample interviews and conversations, she gives readers a better understanding of how imminent death affects the patient, the professionals who serve that patient, and the patient’s family, bringing []

The History of New Innovations in Modern Medicine by Dr. James D. Okun MD, Evangelita Goodwell (Book Review #16)

  This book is almost like a dedicated memoir of collected physicians that have almost become forgotten by the modern society, of whom their discoveries are to this day the reason why many of us have the ability to live a longer life. In every chapter of this book, Author, Dr. Okun & Goodwell, initially introduce us to an inventor, his background and how they discover the cure to a particular illness. In most cases, instead of being appreciated for new ideas []
