Dave Pelz's Damage Control: How to Save Up to 5 Shots Per Round Using All-New, Scientifically Proven ...
Dave Pelz Damage Control side benefit
When I first read the book, new information that you would never hear from your local pro was flowing into my head. The course management ideas, backed by statistics, was worth the price of the book. The practice ideas for a backyard session for damage conrol shots will be tested this spring. The best thing that came across the page to me was Dave explaining that the clubface direction is ...
The Spectrum: A Scientifically Proven Program to Feel Better, Live Longer, Lose Weight, and Gain Health
Dean Ornish M.D.
Excellent book, good advise, proven health plan
I first became aware of Dr. Dean Ornish when I read his book "Eat More Weight Less". It has been many years since that time and although I believed it was a good, informative book, I was not ready to follow his suggestions. I've since received a diagnosis of calcification of the arteries and was prescribed statin drugs. I did not like the side effects and decided to look for alternatives. I was ...
The Marriage Clinic: A Scientifically Based Marital Therapy (Norton Professional Books)
John M. Gottman
W. W. Norton & Company
Recommended reading for all relationships
Dr Gottman is a noted researcher in the field of interpersonal relationships. You can read the summary for the book in the description. I was never one of those readers who thinks Sister Mary Amazon will give me a gold star on my report if I bore you with 500 lines of basically repeating the publisher's summary. The book is purportedly about marriage. I can tell you as an unmarried person that ...
Why Don't Students Like School: A Cognitive Scientist Answers Questions About How the Mind Works and What It ...
Daniel T. Willingham
Confucius says ...
If you learn but do not think, you are in the dark. If you think but do not learn, you are in danger. This is an old quote from the Analects of Confucius stating the importance of both the passive rote memorization of facts (learning), and the active intellectual activity of reflection and investigation (thinking). In this book, Willingham backs up the wisdom of this saying with the results ...
Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes ...
Rodale Books, 2007
The Scientific Proven System for Reversing Diabetes . . . .
A great book with a detailed study of what foods will lower or raise one's glucose levels with many excellent recipes for a healthy diet. It might be somewhat an overstatement to title the book a "Proven System for Reversing Diabetes", but I would cut him some slack for all the great material it does provide.
Prime-Time Health: A Scientifically Proven Plan for Feeling Young and Living Longer
Little, Brown and Company
First a great read, then a great reference!
I have read many self-help books on dieting or health in general and this is the best. I would describe it as having unlimited access to a doctor who not only is knowlegeable but is an ideal communicator. The writing includes a wealth of material on every aspect of maintaining health as you age, all science-based. The emphasis is on proactive things the reader can do to improve your probablities ...
Healthy at 100: The Scientifically Proven Secrets of the World's Healthiest and Longest-Lived Peoples
Ballantine Books, 2008
Healthy At 100
The correct view of healthy living is elusive. One physician said, "When we all die and find out the truth, the thing we will be most embarrassed about is the diets we prescribed." Advice on new nutritional concepts sells magazines, but most of the ideas soon fall by the wayside in favor of the next fad. If only we knew what has worked in the long term. Well, it seems that "Healthy at 100" is ...
Yes!: 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive
120 reviews, ...
Free Press, 2008
Fascinating, Applicable Business Ideas
I picked up Yes! at an airport bookstore before a long flight. I read it cover to cover on the flight out, and read it again, this time with highlighter, on the way home. The short chapters, each on a different facet of human social behavior, backed up with empirical evidence and focused on persuasion techniques, are entertaining, and a great read. Moreover, it's all information that readers from ...

Dr. Esselstyn lays it out pure and simple. We have control over our lives, the choice is ours. Eat to live or eat yourself to death. I've been using his system for the past 6 weeks and have never felt better. Not always the easiest way to eat because of habits and temptations, but taking control of your life has never been an easy path. Read this book! And then choose life.

The Anti-Aging Plan: The Nutrient-Rich, Low-Calorie Way of Eating for a Longer Life--The Only Diet ...
Da Capo Press, 2005
The best of the CR books
The Anti Aging Plan is, in my opinion, the first book to read on the subject of Caloric Restriction (CR). The basic idea of CR is that you can live much longer if you design a diet for yourself which is low in calories, but provides all of the necessary nutrition. This book presents the essential facts, without getting bogged down in technical details. Anyone who wants to maximize their ...

St. Martin's Griffin
You will never need another "diet" book!
I have tried everything: WW, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, Atkins, Biggest Loser, etc. I own every diet book out there. I even tried the oil or sugar in the water diet. I usually couldn't even make it through one meal on a diet nevermind a day. Finally I realized I just didn't want to lose weight. Well of course I wanted to lose weight I just didn't know how to convince my head. My mind set ...

Practice what the book says on a regular basis and you will get to be less stressful. It has helped me and I like the realistic approach of the book.
The Brain Trust Program: A Scientifically Based Three-Part Plan to Improve Memory, Elevate Mood, ...
Brilliant and Authoritative
I couldn't help but notice that Dr. McCleary's photo on the back flap of the book shows that he is a bit overweight. This is natural considering his apparent love for beacon and eggs for breakfast, and his love for red meats, butter, and cheese. In my opinion, this is the only questionable part of his book. I just cannot believe that a diet abundant in saturated fats and cholesterols is not ...
Stretching Scientifically: A Guide to Flexibility Training (4th Revision ed)
Stadion Publishing Company, Inc.
A must read on flexibility
This book is very informative and easy to read. It use of common sense and research will make you re-think all the years of poor advice you have received on stretching. I have basically been stretching the same way that I was taught in junior high for the last 30 years. I have made more progress toward the split in the 30 days since I began reading this book then I did in all that previous time.
