Joseph Balkoski
5 stars

Lying (Kindle Single) – FREE

Lying (Kindle Single)
Sam Harris
4 star nonfiction

As it was in Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, and Othello, so it is in life. Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies. Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals, financial fraud, government corruption—even murder and genocide—generally require an additional moral defect: a willingness to lie.

In Lying, bestselling author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth in situations where others often lie. He focuses on “white” lies—those lies we tell for the purpose of sparing people discomfort—for these are the lies that most often tempt us. And they tend to be the only lies that good people tell while imagining that they are being good in the process.

Do You Speak Dog? – FREE

Do You Speak Dog? How to Easily Train Your Dog By Communicating With Him On HIS Level
Lee Dobbins
3+ stars

Even the most unruly dog can be trained if you just know how to talk to him!

If you are a dog owner, you probably already know how challenging dog training can be. Dogs have their own personality and their own ideas about what they want to do and it’s not always what you want them to do. Couple that with the fact that most people aren’t born being able to simply “whisper” to dogs and get them to do their bidding and you have a recipe for frustration.

All dogs are not created equal so it stands to reason that not all dogs should be trained the same way.

In fact, in order for dog training to be successful, you have to learn how to talk your dogs language. Not just “dog language” the language that your specific dog talks.

The mistake that most people make with dog training is to try to get the dog to understand them, when they should be working to understand the dog. And that’s what this book will help you do – talk to your dog in a language that HE will understand!

Once you do that, you will find that dog training is not only easy and fun but you will quickly be able to turn your dog into the obedient companion you always wanted.

How to make that all-important first chapter sparkle. (The only one anybody reads if it doesn’t sparkle.)

JULIE SMITH is the author of two dozen novels and short story collections, and the winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel.

Good Enough Parenting – The Sensible Discipline Guide for New Parents – FREE

Good Enough Parenting – The Sensible Discipline Guide for New Parents
Lisl Fair
5 stars

Discipline is the one area in child rearing that often makes parents feel as if they are missing the mark. To be consistent in disciplining their children whilst juggling their other responsibilities is one of the most difficult tasks that parents will ever attempt. The bewildering array of discipline books, formulas and methods available often add to parents’ burdens instead of supplying practical ideas that can be customized to be implemented in their own households.

Good Enough Parenting – The Sensible Discipline Guide for New Parents doesn’t make any claims that children will be transformed in a couple of days, but it does provide parents with a framework from which they can make informed choices about discipline that suit their own parenting goals. It also helps parents understand how to strike a balance between their children’s needs and their own.

This guide book is helpful for parents who find prescriptive discipline methods limiting and wants to learn more about the essential elements in an effective discipline approach. The book contains a framework for effective discipline and a questionnaire to help parents identify areas of the discipline process in which they can still grow.
