Weight Loss Surgery For Dummies
Marina S. Kurian
Great Reference Book
I bought this book prior to my July 2009 GBS surgery. It is the best book on the subject, by far. The sections are broken down in order with a lot of information on every aspect of GBS/Lap Band you would need to know prior to and post surgery. I loaned it to a friend of mine and wish I had kept it as it is a very useful guide to everything from food, water, protein, post surgery emotions, ...
Final Gifts: Understanding and Helping the Dying
Hodder & Stoughton Religious
Hope at a scary time
In the middle of caring for my 50-year-old husband during his dying process my hair dresser gave me a copy of this book. I was so scared that I wouldn't know what to do, how to care for him and I would cause more pain than be a source of strength or comfort. I am a Believer, a Follower of Jesus. I didn't see this book as going against anything I believed. I saw it has a tool, information for ...

In Her Wake
Basic Books, 2009
An absolutely wonderful read!
I laughed, teared up, and marveled at the author's use of vocabulary and ability to communicate so directly. What a powerful family, and moving story. A beautiful weaving of past events, the author's current life, and salient information regarding suicide. Thanks to her prose, I felt as if I was going through the journey with the author; and certainly enjoyed her explanations, world view, and ...
Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio
Albert Whitman & Company
Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio
This was an excellent book that very accurately described what children experienced when they contracted polio in the 1940's and 1950's. It was well written to be read quickly by an older child or by an adult to any child or just for their own education. Peg Kehret's memories will help as a base in any discussion of polio; what happens, how it was treated and in some cases overcome, and what ...

This book should be in every household. It is very simple to use, it has one page for each day of the year. My sister used it following the death of her beloved husband and now she is living life to the fullest once again. I bought two, one to keep and one to pass on to someone in need.

Ryan White: My Own Story
Ann Marie Cunningham

He was my friend
Today is World AIDS Day and each year I remember my childhood friend, Ryan White. His sister and I were both Rollerskaters and skated in the same skating rinks. Knowing Ryan personally and having his book for years now, it is still a story that resonates with me. It is true, thoughtful, and in his own words. I'll never forget the hatred the spewed from the city of Kokomo against him. It was ...
Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimer's: One Daughter's Hopeful Story
Unforgettable! A "Must-Read"
"Dancing With Rose" ("Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimer's") was one of the most tender, poignant and moving stories I've ever encountered. On so many levels, it is memorable. I don't have any personal experience (yet) with Alzheimer's, but this book has prepared me to embrace it in a different way than I certainly would have. I applaud Lauren's courage to admit her fears and weaknesses ...
