In the Midwest we are experiencing what are known as the dog days of summer. And when it gets this hot, we all tend to wind down a bit, hang out in the a/c and perhaps even turn to a bit of reading. I recently asked my Facebook Fans a question; “What is the best book you have read in the last year?” I got so many interesting responses, I wanted to share them with you. Though I have not read all these books, some have really peaked my interest.
- A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases & The Cure of Advanced Cancer by Diet Therapy by Max Gerson, M.D. This book is based on 30 years of clinical experimentation and explains how Dr. Gerson’s Therapy reactivates the body’s healing mechanisms in chronic degenerative diseases. Presented are fifty documented case histories, along with a modified version of the therapy for use with nonmalignant diseases, as well as for preventative purposes.
- Three Feet From Gold by Sharon L. Lechter and Greg S. Reid is based on the principles outlined in Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. Publishers Weekly says that they “Readers won’t ever get bored with Lechter and Reid’s brisk text, and it’s ameliorated by plenty of review. Big ideas are developed artfully by revisiting and building upon previously introduced concepts. This volume should interest both sophisticated and novice followers of Napoleon Hill, or anyone looking for a practical take on the power of a positive outlook.”
- The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss is a huge book; in fact the comment by the poster to Facebook was that if it did not make them smarter, it would make them strong simply by having to lift the book! There are several different sections in the book, however, and not all sections will apply to every person’s goal, so you can pick and choose sections to read. This is a very interesting health book that goes way outside of the box.
- Radical by David Platt presents a radical challenge; it challenges us to really consider Jesus’ view of what a disciple of his is. As in how one may actually live and what their life may actually look like. It shares the dramatic story of what is happening as a “successful” suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.
- The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman is one that I really do love. It is a wonderful way for you and your spouse to discover each of your unique love languages and learn practical steps in truly loving each other.
- Boundaries is by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, this is a must read for anyone who has a hard time saying “No.” The book reveals how readers can set reasonable boundaries in order to follow the true path of Christianity. The book makes personal boundaries easier to define and is filled with spiritual purpose.
Happy and Self-Helpful reading to you all during these HOT summer days! Please feel free to share with us below any books you think our fans would love to read!
