When Mom and Dad Separate: Children Can Learn to Cope with Grief from Divorce
I found this book extremely helpful in my therapy work with children whose parents are divorcing. The art therapy format was especially helpful for my nonverbal kids. The book nicely addresses many issues that may arise for children in a nonthreatening manner. Most of all, it did a good job of explaining "divorce", a very grown-up concept, in kid terms.

Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else
Genuinely useful info, and a fascinating read
Superb book with fascinating and useful info. I found it a bit lengthy to get through - all of the most salient points were made in the first half, plus the last chapter. Still, very important info for those interested in self-development. I found it a little meatier than Outliers, with more research and fewer out-there hypotheses. My Kindle version is filled with notes and highlights. Great!

A Separate Peace
A Line Runs Through the Human Heart
Walking down the aisles of a bookstore or a library and encountering a book called A Separate Peace, flipping open the cover and noting that the copyright is dated 1959, it would not be much of an intuitive leap for the reader to guess that the subject matter involved war. The reader would be right, though he or she could not possibly intuit the richly layered tale that unfolds as pages turn, ...

Too often, organizations stupidly ...

This is a very good book.
A Separate Battle: Women and the Civil War (Young Readers' History of the Civil War)
Fiction format will grab the most apprehensive reader
The text looks at the famous and not so famous women who participated in the Civil War. It is written in a narrative format, more like a fictional text than a non-fiction. The book is filled with original pictures and short informational biographies of the most important women featured. The illustrations are very large and would be nice to use with an opaque projector when speaking about some ...

Exceptional reading for anyone, but especially those with any degree of apprehension of non-duality teachings or those who have read similar books on the subject and are not quite sure "what now." Nirmala's simple down to earth approach to everything he publishes is just what many of us need to cut through the brush of material available, most of which is either too complicated, too abstract, or ...
