Quick review for a quick read. A library read that was recommended to me regarding texts on mindfulness. I really enjoyed it. “The Ultimate Happiness Prescription” is one of the most concise, inspiring reads that I’ve picked up in its respective genre. Chopra’s explanation of the seven keys are logical, honest, encouraging, and informative.
Quick review for a very quick read. I found this book of affirmations at my local bookstore and picked it up on a whim. Mostly because it had bright colors, peppy illustrations and very memorable adages when I flipped through the work. I read this inside of an hour, but even with it being a brief read, the values and advice within Salmansohn’s narrative is well worth revisiting for many different scenarios (mood changes, life changes, loss, failure, trying something new, etc.) Some dialogues in this book hit more home with me than others and I give it credit for that. Salmansohn’s connections to the experiences is well noted, and I thought the narrative supported a strong connection between sticking to the topics of each section and providing personal feedback. I definitely will find myself returning to this narrative, if even on the measure that illustrations are a big part of that enjoyment/reasoning.
Overall score :3.5/5 stars.
Quick review for a quick read. I’d probably give this around 3 stars. I appreciated reading it, but admittedly it wasn’t quite what I was looking for in the context of narrative resources I was searching for. I regularly seek books with inspirational quotations because I love reading those kinds of quick bit narratives and they make for quotations that I refer back to frequently the context of inspiring my writing, mood, among other things. Some of these quotation books can be non-denominational (just general good mood quotations) or those that may come from narratives of different faiths or ideologies – and I read them with the appreciation of what they bring to the table.
Quick review for a very quick read. I ended up reading this in the span of about two full hours, and only because I wanted to take my time going through each of the quotations, picking and choosing some of my favorites among the bunch. I was browsing around Barnes and Noble and saw this book on sale (for $7, I thought it was a great deal). It’s a long shaped, rather thick hardback book comprised of numerous inspirational quotations from a lot of different writers, artists, historians, political and famous figures. It’s separated into five sections: Celebrating You, Positive Change, Life’s Simple Pleasures, The Great and the Good, Silver Linings, and The Power of Laughter, each section color coded and filled with little etchings, designs, and otherwise colorful prints to put you in a good mood alongside the quotes. I love the quality of the paper it’s printed on as well. I’m definitely keeping this in my library for a long time to come, and referring to it when I need a bit of a pick-me-up.
Overall score: 5/5 stars.
