  • Moody B--ches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, the Sleep You're Missing, the Sex You're Not Having and What's Really Making You Crazy...

Overworked? Exhausted? Powering between career, family, and friends and frazzled and libido-less as a result? No wonder you're moody! But as New York psychiatrist Julie Holland explains in her radical and eye-opening new book, the first step to overcoming the lows is to accept that being testy is in our nature - we were made to be Moody B--hes. Being a successful modern woman is hard, and for so many of us the constant flux in our hormones and the dips and dives our mood swings take make it that much harder.

The narration was nasally and a little hard to listen to. The physiology info in the book was great, and some good ideas. One main idea is that women should think about going on antidepressants seasonally, and give them up in summer when the days are brighter and things seem better...I dont know how the author manages patients doing this. Its hell getting used to antidepressants for lots of people, and weaning yourself off them is worse. I cant imagine anything worse than doing that two or three times a year! Crazy. Also she talks a LOT about how men are hard wired for porn and are addicted to plastic images of women, so much so that they are no longer turned on by their real girlfriends...but then goes on to assure us that "heterosexual men go wild for a real womans curves so love your body" um. No. They don't...thats the problem! Theres lots of gender stereotyping going on. Also, she starts out by saying "your emotions are normal, youre meant to be anxious and high string and people around you should understand" but...actually severe PMS is a sign of serious imbalance and anyone who has lived with it will tell you its far from ok. Take this book with a grain of salt

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I feel like Tony is rebranding himself as a finance wiz, but the basic message is "the stock market always wins if you can stomach the ride" ...literally the very first thing anyone ever tells you about wealth.

Would you ever listen to anything by Tony Robbins again?

Love the guy. But too many long winded stories and examples. We arent stupid mate!

On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

a little heavy with the hashtags and cool girl speak but also a fun and mindful guide to all things "now age". I love her perspective on stuff like sobriety and bathing like you mean it. basically this book promotes getting in touch with your own brand of magic and thats a beautoful and healthy thing. buy it.

Sutton doesn't like the 3 a.m. phone calls. He should change his number; that way Rawson wouldn't have it. Sutton's best mate is a hero cop, but strife flows through him like a highway. A story of good dogs living in a bad-news town...a fragrant harbour city where the judges are dead, the vendetta's lively and every glittering fortune hides a sin. An epic novel of corruption, murder and the true nature of justice, Winter Traffic announces the arrival of a compelling new voice in literary crime.

If you're like me, you watched The Secret, attended seminars, and studied every other New Age and new thought author and teacher, but with little success. Eventually, I combined the different advice I'd received and started to receive what I've nick-named Magic Money. But don't get me wrong - this isn't the woo-woo, Law of Attraction stuff you've heard before. Magic Money is practical prosperity that, when you practice it, works like a charm. And it usually starts within 24 hours!
