Short Book

History of Empires by Robert Dean (Book Review #205)

Lean Stone Book Club kindly requested these short book reviews. History of Empires is a short book written about the history of the Roman, American, and British Empires. It also covers Sparta and Babylon and their history. Since it is a short book, it is obvious that the content is not going to cover everything or at least won’t be able to cover things in detail, however, what it does do is provide a general and correct overview of each of the []

This review was kindly requested by Lean Stone Book Club.   NLP is a short non-fiction book written about the effective way to set your mind straight and to be able to focus better in life.

Intermittent Fasting by Justin Hart (Book Review 203)

This review was kindly requested by Lean Stone Book Club. This book is all about weight loss. It discusses methods such as fasting and ketogenic ways of losing fat in our body. It also provides some history and common knowledge on problems people have that face dieting and what is now called “crash dieting.” I found that particular part of the book to be very interesting, as I know it to be true. There are parts where you feel that the book []

Vikings by Michael J. Stewart (Book Review #207)

This review was kindly requested by Lean Stone Book Club. Vikings is a book writing about the history, mythology, and the Rune Stones of these well know pirate raids. It begins with explaining where the word ‘Viking’ originates from and how it all started. These raiders and plunders sure did have a life of their own and I was happy to read and learn more about them. My knowledge about these people was, to be honest, limited. However, after reading this book, []

“Kids on Trump: America’s Children on President Trump” by Marie Korman & Freida Raj

This review was kindly requested by Marie Korman. Kids on Trump is a short non-fiction book about creating opportunities for children to grow by giving value to what they think. The book begins with interviewing a 10-year-old kid, asking her questions about Trump. The questions are all very generic and the answers are pretty funny. The girl is completely against Trump and wants nothing to do with him. In between these interviews, there are exercises for the reader. I found the workshop []

Lean Stone Book Club kindly requested this short book review. Mythology is a book written about the legends and stories (where they originated) of Jews, Egyptians, Norse, Christian, Roman and the Greeks. The traditions, tales, and information are obtained from scripts and scrolls found within each era. This book has ultimately created a collection of myths that would interest any historian to read. I enjoyed the fact that the book’s intention is to educate how the world worked back then. Although the []
