Inheritance: How Our Genes Change Our Lives–and Our Lives Change Our Genes by Sharon Moalem MD PhD $4.98 Amazon ($28.00 MSRP) This book is about how our genes detemermine how our health is affected. This book talks about how pain killers are like morphine to some people and how fructose can kill you.
Summary: Conventional wisdom dictates that our genetic destiny is fixed at conception. But Dr. Moalem's groundbreaking book shows us that the human genome is far more fluid and fascinating than your ninth grade biology teacher ever imagined. By bringing us to the bedside of his unique and complex patients, he masterfully demonstrates what rare genetic conditions can teach us all about our own health and well-being.
Wake Up Happy By Michael Strahan $8.80 ($16.00 MSRP) Michael is the new co-host of Live with Kelly and Michael and former football player. This book is about how to use mental toughness and hard work to get what you want. I have seen his morning show a few times and I am interested to see what he says.
Summary: Pulling from his own life experiences, Michael Strahan details the mix of mental discipline, positive thinking, and sense of play that lead him to a Super Bowl XLII victory as a member of the New York Giants, and later to star alongside Kelly Ripa in the hit daytime talk show Live! with Kelly and Michael. Each of these “Strahan Rules” will guide you step-by-step through developing a work ethic and mental durability that will prime you to achieve your goals and transform your life.
Delivered with his signature wit and wisdom, Strahan’s Rules combine a range of advice, from values he picked up from his father who served in the military to professors who teach on the science of happiness and include: -Rule #5: Too many of us count ourselves out before we even give ourselves a chance…Do the work. Be excellent. You’ll find your place.
-Rule #11: You can’t change other people, but you can change how you are around them, and sometimes, a lot of times, that’s more than enough.-Rule #12: Listen to other people, but don’t take their opinions for fact. Have your own experiences. Draw your own conclusions.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $13.78 using Amazon prices. The books look interesting, but I wished the value was higher. I do like that you can select that books that fits the category you want. If you want to check out Book Grind, use the coupon READNOW to save 10%.
