Best Books for Your Health

Health books are not just about eating right. While having a healthy diet is important, it is not the end all and be all of health aspects. In order to live a lifestyle that works to the benefit of your body you need to cover fitness as well. To help, here are some of the best health related books on the market.

The End of Overeating

David Kessler, former head of the Food and Drug Administration, wrote The End of Overeating to help people understand how to change their relationship with food. Instead of simply pointing out the dangers of eating poorly, he approaches the information like a scientist. He shows readers why there are cravings for sugar, fat, and salt. Throughout the pages of the book he shows how relationships with certain foods form and how many Americans have become obsessed with food.

Like all addictions, breaking the bad food habit is not easy. Kessler takes the time to not only explain the relationships and why they are bad, but he also shows readers how to overcome the problem. There is a reward process and change can’t take place overnight, but it can be done.

Must Read Motivational Books

Motivational books inspire and help those who might not be able to get help any other way. By definition they are designed to motivate the reader to make some sort of change in the way he lives, works, or behaves. With so many to choose from it can be difficult to know where to start. In order to help, here are some of the best motivational books of all times.

How to Win Friends and Influence People

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie is known as one of the first motivational books ever to hit the market. Published in 1936, it has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide. It was revised in 1981, offering updated language and reducing the number of sections from six to four.

In this book, Carnegie details techniques on handling people, ways to make people like you, how to change people without offending others, and steps to win others to your way of thinking. Over three quarters of a century later, it is still one of the most talked about motivational books available.

The Power of Knowledge of Books

In no other way can a person travel to as many cities, worlds, and countries as quickly as through the pages of a book. Books magically transport readers on adventures they would normally never encounter. While opening the mind to a plethora of possibilities, the written work can also impart knowledge to those who seek it.

Because of the limitlessness of books, a reader can be easily transported to entirely new lands just by opening the cover. The written word can describe an entirely new realm where dragons speak and pixies rule. Other stories transport can transport the reader to real places on the planet, allowing them to walk the emerald green hills of Ireland while not leaving the comfort of their favorite chair. Nothing in the world has the power to spark the imagination quite like the written word.

Through the pages of a book, readers become conscious of others around them. Books have been known to open the eyes of those who peruse the pages to the plight of the less fortunate. Through these pages readers are opened to the conditions of the characters and their lives. This, in turns, shines a light on the pain and anguish that can be felt by someone living as the personalities in the story.

The Best Way to Save Our Books From The Apocalypse

book-1063328_960_720Recent events and some earlier posts here may have reminded you of the Apocalypse, whether you believe in the religious connotations of end-of-world scenarios or not. It does not matter what you believe at this stage. One thing that is a reality is that it is quite possible (to quote a line from a movie from this doomsday genre) that the world, as we know it, could end soon. Or as the Hebrew scholars (ancient or present day) insist, not for at least another thousand years. The opinions propagated by fundamentalists, no matter which religion they are affiliated to, don’t count because if you are well-read, you will know that much of what they say (or do) is not informed in a scholarly or literary way.

Books preserve history

There are two poignant moments from two post-Apocalypse movies from the same production crew which have books as its subject matter. In The Day After Tomorrow, sensible survivors are gathering together hundreds of books to add as fuel to a hot fire that is going to keep them alive during the big freeze. They are riding out the storm in New York City’s public library. After being questioned why he has set aside this particularly large, well-bound and ancient book, a confirmed atheist states that with the Bible, all human history can start life over again.

The second scene takes place in a small cockpit within the bowels of a modern-day Noah’s ark after the world has been destroyed as predicted through ancient Mayan prophesies. A brilliant, young scientist remarks that while this particularly modest but no less optimistic adventure story received no acclaim or interest from the literary and general public, this small tome would live on in history as the first printed book of the new age into which his fellow scientist and love interest and thousands of other saved souls were heading.


The world’s first book

church-1024315_960_720Although these are only stories, it is the salt from which legends are born. And the most famous medium through which so many tales of adventure, survival and heroism have been told throughout the centuries since the printing press printed the first Bible remains the good old fashioned book. What if there was an apocalyptic event then? How would we be able to preserve and save all our treasure troves of stories, history and just plain old good advice? Here’s a novel idea; purchase a thick, heavy-duty water and fire-proof metal gun-safe, a large one, mind you, so that you can squeeze at least a thousand books into it.

Novel or not, much like the books themselves, this is all food for thought. Perhaps we could talk to our federal government or local municipality about creating a Fort Knox just for books and manuscripts.


This idea may seem amusing to some, but book lovers will attest to this necessity. What they will also tell their non-reading peers is this; no matter what may happen in the future, the stories and accounts they have read over the years, will, in any case, still be preserved with them.

Bookworms Also Need to Stretch a Little

fitness-956645_1280We must confess that most of us here are bookworms. We read at every opportunity we can get, even sneaking in a few pages here and there at our office desk or at the dinner table.

Because we are so engrossed in what we are reading, we can’t help ourselves and everything else goes to pot.

We’ve let the pot or kettle boil over on the stove on more than one occasion because the page we were busy with caused us to forget. Many of us have also forgotten how quickly time flies after spending two or more absorbing hours with our beloved book and our feet curled up on our favorite settee.

A noble pursuit

While we are so busy getting our three or four-time daily fix, something else also goes to the dogs. Our bodies. Those few hours spent reading, having already cut into our work schedule and housework routine, has left us with no time to get out and exercise. It’s a bit of a conundrum, because if you are an avid reader, you’ll be able to relate. People who love reading say that it helps them to relax. It de-stresses the mind.

But because it barely gets to move about, the body becomes quite stiff. As a regular reader, you know that feeling when you finally clap the book shut and stretch those limbs as far as possible. You are, oh so, stiff, but thankfully not sore. Before continuing any further about why bookworms need to shut the covers every once in a while and give their bodies some time out, we’d just like to remind you that there is absolutely no shame in being a bookworm. In fact, it’s a noble and commendable quality to have.

Carrying the tome

At this point we don’t need to explain why this is so. You already know. Now, where exercise is concerned, you don’t need to pack it all out on a heavy-handed punching bag. Where reading is concerned, your intellect knows no limits. But be reminded that no matter what age you are or what size waist you wear, your body has limits. So, go gently into the night (or morning or afternoon, whichever time works best for you).

Let’s just say that you register with the local gym. You’ll soon see that there are kindred spirits among the sweaty throng, pedaling furiously on their stationary bicycles with a book folded open in front of them. If you really must read while taking a gentle or brisk walk through your favorite park, by all means, pack your book under your arm. But be warned, you may just meet the love of your life. Whoever passes you by along the pathway may just be carrying a heavy tome too.

It was also written somewhere that opposites attract. But don’t mind that. What better way can there be to meet someone who has the same interests in life that you do by joining a book club or attending a book launch. When you do that, leave the car behind.

Books to Travel With

Most of us are lucky enough to be able to take a vacation once a year. Others may only be able to take a weekend break away from home every once in a while. But we believe that most people do not make enough time to sit down and read solidly for just one hour every day. Over time, we have expounded on the reasons why people should read and in the main, the benefits of reading, no matter what genre is being covered. Today we are going to take the road less travelled in the hope that at some stage you’ll have an opportunity to get away from it all.

Pack some books for the road trip

Many Americans love road trips. Because the budget does not yet allow for it yet, there are no overseas trips are on the horizon. Those who have trucks or SUV’s usually love their vehicles and would grab any opportunity to test them on the open road. Before leaving, there is much planning and packing to be done. Firstly; where to go. Secondly; what to take with.

We’d like to suggest that no matter where you’re heading, pack a few books. And when planning your itinerary, try to schedule at least one hour of reading time each day. Seek inspiration in everything you do.  For inspiration during the journey, read a little to build a mental library for while you are driving. And should you be driving at night, make sure that your truck is equipped with a battery-powered LED light bar. Ideally, like the battery in your car, the light battery should be long-lasting. There are other accessories you’ll need for your road trip but if you visit websites such as this one, you’ll soon get a clear picture of what’s necessary and what can be left behind.

Pack in stories that will inspire you

Now that you’ve got all your travelling gear and car accessories sorted out, what sort of books should you be taking with you? Space being at a premium, there should be enough room for at least four books. Make sure that they are pliable, soft-covered publications. They are easier to pack. Your trip is all about seeking inspiration and stimulating your thoughts while driving or hiking. Books that are likely to bring out the best in you can be selected from a variety of genres.

Pick out a biography on one famous person you admire at the moment. Depending on your religious beliefs, take with you a book that could motivate you in the spiritual sense. Instead of taking out a popular fiction novel, take with you one of the great all-American classics in which the moral of the story’s tale leads you to be inspired.

Go with your gut

We could suggest dozens of titles for you, but we are going to leave that choice to you. Go with your gut, or visit your library or search well-publicized bookseller lists to gather some ideas if you don’t have a clear idea in mind yet. And then take the road less travelled, not forgetting to read in between.

Books Worth Saving

Books Worth SavingThough the Internet has seriously changed the way information is distributed throughout the world, there was a time not too long ago when books were the main go to for people who wanted to learn something. Sure, there were and still are magazines and newspapers for people looking to learn the latest trends or what’s happening in their country or around the world, but these aren’t the same as books loaded with useful information. Because books are so useful as stores of knowledge which allows that information to be retrieved at any time, there are some books which are just worth saving.

This is in spite of the fact so much text is digitized and read from the opposite side of a computer monitor these days. Books can be read even without electricity, which is probably the only reason they haven’t completely disappeared from the world yet. Getting back to books worth saving, perhaps it’s more accurate to say information worth saving. Consider medical texts that tell us about human anatomy and physiology, or the various diseases and sicknesses which can malign a person and how to treat those illnesses effectively. Such information is really invaluable when you stop to think about it.

If that is understood, then it makes sense that medical books would be books worth saving. There are other books like this too. What about books which describe the manufacture of various tools, as well as the ways to use those tools to create other things, maybe even other tools which could be used for further projects? Just have a look at for an example. If there weren’t shop and technical education classes that taught kids how to use devices like these growing up, would they even know how to use them? Would they even know what they were for?

book savingInstructional manuals and technical guides are some of the most informative texts possessed by the human race. They contain information learned through years, decades, perhaps even centuries of experimentation, application and learning. These bits of information are also the things people tend to take for granted today, in a world where information of all kinds is so easy to get with a quick Internet search. What if there was no Internet? There are people alive today who can tell you about what life was like without it. Your parents might even know, if you’re not a younger person.

Repair manuals are another treasure people take for granted. If we really end up in Mad Max times like the old (and new) movie depicts, knowing how to fix up an old engine, drain a carburetor or reset a timing chain can only help, and you won’t just be able to look that knowledge up with a fast search. This is probably a better example than the Belt Sander World one, because more people drive around than use belt sanders on a day to day basis. But whatever knowledge you’re trying to find, the odds are good it can be found in books, and that’s the main point here.

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: A Book on People and Quality

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle MaintenanceZen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values is a non-fiction book that every person who is interested in philosophy and wants to understand people a little better needs to read. In this work, the author, Robert M. Pirsig, presents his outlook on the Metaphysics of Quality and explains that people can be divided in two groups depending on their personalities:

  • “Romantics”.
    These are people who are focused on the moment and disregard rational analysis. The examples of such personality offered in the book are the Sutherlands who own a top-notch bike but know nothing about its maintenance. They choose to ignore this issue altogether until a problem appears. When this happens, John Sutherland must resort to employing the services of a professional mechanic as he has no skills to fix the bike on his own.
  • “Classics”.
    The classical viewpoint is focused on rational analysis. “Classics” seek to understand the inner workings of the mechanism, and use this understanding to repair or upgrade the machine. At the beginning of the book, the Narrator is presented as a “classic” who can understand the problem from listening to the sound of the engine, apply logic and analysis to determine its cause, and solve it using his skills.

Despite its name, the book isn’t really about motorcycle maintenance. Although, you can learn some motorbike caring tips from it. Of course, if you are looking for a detailed guide for motorcycling beginners, you should visit websites like that offer helpful information, like a guide to choosing the best helmet in a form that is easy even for non-professionals to understand.

Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a work of philosophy that likens the characters’ journey to life and understanding one’s place in it. It’s a story of a transformation of the protagonist who seeks to find inner peace in the world where “romantic” and “classical” outlooks clash on a daily basis. While reading the book, we come to learn that the Narrator understands both these viewpoints and is trying to establish some kind of “middle ground” where he can find a place for himself. The author uses motorcycle maintenance as an example and shows that it can be seen as either a tedious chore, or a pleasant pastime. The difference is only in the attitude.

Pirsig encourages the readers to embrace both the rational and romantic approaches as true happiness can be found only when one utilizes them both depending on the circumstances. He claims that no matter how efficient, the rational viewpoint isn’t applicable in 100% of cases. In his arguments, he cites ancient Greek philosophers who established the concept of “pure truth” to the concept of “the good”. According to Pirsig, rational, or classical, approach can find the “truth”, but in some cases of individual experiences it will be insufficient or incapable of providing satisfaction.

The author views a high degree of frustration and general dissatisfaction with life we see in the vast majority of people today is born from the inability to distinguish between “quality” (the Good) and “truth”. The solution to this problem is to embrace both science and rational thought as well as bursts of irrational wisdom, like intuition and creativity.

Top Cook Books On Meat

Top Cook Books On MeatWith the importance given to organic produce and the harmful effects of genetically modified foods being highlighted well, people have started preferring organic fruits, vegetables, and meat.  In fact, a lot of research is being done on sustainable agriculture matters, organics, the way animals are grown, fed, and slaughtered and on the way to cook them properly.

Is Your Aquarium Filter Enough?

Is Your Aquarium Filter Enough?If you don’t own fish then you can probably just ignore this article and move on with the rest of your day. Unless you’re really keen on reading about water filtering systems, that is. For those of you who do own fish though, is your aquarium filter enough? Is it doing enough to keep the water clean and free of impurities, toxins, waste and microbial matter? Well, the answer probably depends on a few things, like the size of your aquarium, the total volume of water to be filtered and the number of fish living in the water. Essentially though, if the water always looks dirty, it’s not getting cleaned thoroughly enough.

If that’s the case, replacing your current water filter is probably a good idea. But what should you use to replace it? You could go with another filter of the same type if you’ve found a brand and size that steadily does the job for you. If you know your current choice just isn’t doing enough to keep your aquarium clean though, you might want to upgrade to something bigger, or maybe something that’s simply better made. Not all filters are created equal, though if you’re using a small-scale aquarium that might just seem to be the case.

I’m talking about canister filters. They’re pretty sizeable on average and usually meant for larger water tanks and aquariums, but they’re pretty popular because of how well they work, and smaller versions are available for home use if you’re willing to go looking for them. You can read more about them if you like, but they are at their heart the same as any other liquid filter; water with grit passes through, the grit stays and clean water keeps moving. The fact these filters use ceramics instead of lesser quality or organic materials means they don’t harbor infections or bacterial growth like other filters.

Because they’re made from porcelain but at more of an industrial grade, canister filters are unfortunately very fragile. They’ve been known to break if jarred too hard, and they won’t just get a little rip in one spot and keep working like other filters would; they shatter pretty nicely, actually. You can read more about the pros and cons at that Canister Filter Guide website, but I’ve already outlined the major differences, perks and bad points about them here. Getting back to the question I first asked then, is your aquarium filter enough?

If it is, then you’re in good shape. Even if it isn’t though, you don’t necessarily need to buy some big, bulky filter, or a bigger tank to accommodate it. You could always split your single aquarium up into two smaller ones and divvy up the contents – fish, water, furniture, rocks – evenly between the two separate tanks. This would significantly reduce the burden on each of the two individual water filters, perhaps to the point where both could operate normally and the water quality would improve. Considering the costs of more filters, tanks and supplies though, the best option isn’t immediately clear here.
