Size 2 for Life by Ashley Marriott and Marc L. Paulsen, MD

I found this an interesting and encouraging book. We all might want to be Size 2, but in this book the authors explain how not everyone can be a size 2, but they can be an adjusted size 2. They explain how to find what your perfect size might be by measuring your wrist. They tie in eating properly, and getting the right amount of exercise in a no-nonsense and up-front manner that I found encouraging. This is not the kind of book you can sit down and read cover to cover, tho. It is more a reference, with facts, exercises, recipes, and a diet plan that can help you along the way. I think this book is worth a read, and maybe will inspire a new perspective on sizing and maybe even encourage getting to your size 2!

How to Solve Your People Problems: Dealing With Your Difficult Relationships by Dr. Alan Godwin

I found this an interesting and worthwhile book. It deals with conflicts and relationships, why we have them, and why we need them. I am sure anyone who reads it will find that they recognize situations in their own life where conflict has arisen, and how it might have been dealt with better. It would definitely be worth a second read.
