Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Diffusing Essential Oils for Beginners

Diffusers are becoming wildly popular.


In ancient times, the plant kingdom provided our earliest ancestors with the natural healing powers derived from nature. Extracts and essences from plants and flowers were prized for their medicinal, spiritual, aromatic, and therapeutic value, including beauty benefits.

Aromatic plants, essences, and oils have traditionally been used during religious ceremonies and observances, beauty care and perfumes, food enhancement, and preservation. Aromatic plants were the basis for herbal and botanical medicines and remedies for thousands of years - they still are. In fact, they’re the root of today’s modern pharmaceuticals.

And as lifestyles rapidly changed to meet everyday challenges, and technology progressed in leaps and bounds, herbal knowledge soon fell by the wayside.

During the past century, as the side effects of many chemically based drugs come to light - not to mention the exuberant costs, natural healing has come full circle and has gradually found its way back into our homes. The Western World is standing up and taking notice. People are educating themselves about the wonderful uses and benefits of using essential oils, herbs, and spices. Mother nature's medicine cabinet is back, invoking endless remedies and in some cases, cures - without the side effects.

Granted. Natural healing may not replace the family doctor or chemically manufactured drugs entirely, but it certainly is a healthy alternative to consider when thinking about your health, beauty, wellbeing, and fitness regime.

Bonus: Includes Medicinal Herbs and their uses.

Discover the many benefits to diffusing essential oils to achieve optimal health and well-being in your home and workplace.
Diffusing essential oils can help you study better, sleep better, enhance your moods and put you in the mood...

Kindle Pick of the Week: Getting to Us: How Great Coaches Make Great Teams

This is still a great read, even with college basketball taking hits left and right amid allegations from agents and middlemen and their involvement with players and teams.

Coaches always stand out as important people in our lives.

What makes a coach great? How do great coaches turn a collection of individuals into a coherent “us”?

This a compelling read as the book is broken up in sections- with coaches that interesting stories and back stories to tell.
Seth Davis, one of the keenest minds in sports journalism, has been thinking about that question for twenty-five years. It’s one of the things that drove him to write the definitive biography of college basketball’s greatest coach, John Wooden, Wooden: A Coach’s Life. But John Wooden coached a long time ago. The world has changed, and coaching has too, tremendously. Seth Davis decided to embark on a proper investigation to get to the root of the matter. 

In Getting to Us, Davis probes and prods the best of the best from the landscape of active coaches of football and basketball, college and pro—from Urban Meyer, Dabo Swinney, and Jim Harbaugh to Mike Krzyzewski, Tom Izzo, Jim Boeheim, Brad Stevens, Geno Auriemma, and Doc Rivers—to get at the fundamental ingredients of greatness in the coaching sphere. There’s no single right way, of course—part of the great value of this book is Davis’s distillation of what he has learned about different types of greatness in coaching, and what sort of leadership thrives in one kind of environment but not in others. Some coaches have thrived at the college level but not in the pros. Why? What’s the difference? Some coaches are stern taskmasters, others are warm and cuddly; some are brilliant strategists but less emotionally involved with their players, and with others it’s vice versa.

A pre-order right now that comes out March 6.


Kindle Pick of the Week: Inside the Star Wars Empire: A Memoir 

Wow, what a great read!

Bill Kimberlin may refer to himself as “one of those names on the endless list of credits at the close of blockbuster movies.” In reality though, he’s a true insider on some of the most celebrated and popular movies and franchises of the past century. Jurassic Park. Star Trek. Jumanji. Schindler’s List. Saving Private Ryan. Even Forrest Gump. And perhaps most notably, Star Wars.

Inside the Star Wars Empire is the very funny and insightful tell-all about the two decades Kimberlin spent as a department director at LucasFilm Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), the special effects studio founded by the legendary filmmaker George Lucas.


Kindle Free Pick of the Week: The Gospel According to John

On Super Bowl weekend, only natural to have a football free pick to keep you entertained until gametime.

Gary Sapp, an avid sports fanatic, tackles the phenomenon and controversy of Tim Tebow.

During the 2011 season, Tim Tebow, led the Denver Broncos on an improbable playoff run that cumulated with a breathtaking overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

One month later, John Elway, Bronco legend turned General Manager and President of Football Operations, stunned the pro football world by signing Payton Manning and trading Tim Tebow away to the New York Jets.

Fast forward to the summer of 2013 and Tebow found himself again a man without a team. The New England Patriots became the third organization to trade or outright release the embattled signal-caller.

His detractors say he’s finished. His fans say he’s only getting started.

Gary Sapp finds himself allied with Tebow’s critics. He paints an unflattering but fair picture of a player who struggled to improve as a passer because of his poor mechanics and his inability to read NFL defenses.

The question, however, still remains. Has the NFL seen the last of the former Heisman Trophy Winner? Or did John Elway save us from Tim Tebow?
