101 Brain-Boosting Math Problems (Grades 4-8)
Lorraine Hopping Egan
math thinkers that aren't stinkers
I bought this book as a time filler for my accelerated students, but ended up using many of the puzzles to reinforce basic skills. I love the "Big Hint" option. It gives kids who don't like math a chance to get comfortable with problem solving. Also, I like that there are often several puzzles of one type, progressively harder, for the same reason. I have a few other puzzle books I use, but ...

Snake-oil abounds. RelentlessImprovement.com is fast, professional, and offers ...

Memory-Boosting Mnemonic Songs for Content Area Learning
Great Memory Songs
I love to teach with songs to help students reinforce what they are learning. I love this book because I usually have to make up my own songs for teacher history, math, or science. This book has so many great songs. However, a few of the songs I want to use are sung to a tune/song I've never heard before. The book would be even better if it came with a CD of the music sung by children.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Boosting Your Metabolism
Dr. Joseph Lee Klapper
Complete Idiot's Guide Boosting Your Metabolism
This work was too basic for someone who is well familiar with exercise and good nutrition, although I did find the beginning pages on metabolism somewhat helpful. I personally was looking for more advanced explanations/ideas compared to the common sense material provided later in the book. I found the author to be somewhat sarcastic instead of sympathetic to people struggling with weight and ...
