Reincarnation by Tabitha Zalot (Book Review #190)

This review was kindly requested by Lean Stone Book Club. Reincarnation is a non- fiction- semi-religious book written about Karma and what happens after death. The author believes that there are seven levels of astral worlds where people have to evolve through different lives until they reach the level of Karma, which can liberate them from the reincarnation cycle. I found the book to lack major references and substantial evidence to suggest the opinions mentioned in the content. There are some indications []

History of Philosophy by Michael J. Stewart (Book Review #206)

This review was kindly requested by Lean Stone Book Club. History of Philosophy is a mind-boggling book discussing Roman, Eastern, and Western philosophy. It also includes Theories and philosophers, which have had great influence in shaping what we have today. I liked this book because it was very easy to understand.

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 []

NLP Techniques by Brian Ledger (Book Review #228)

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. NPL stands for Neuro Linguistic Programs, which are psychological techniques that facilitate effective communication.

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.

There are parts where you feel that the book []
