Welcome to the board,


There are certainly alot of good books out there, so thanks for bring this one to light. With all the choices, options, and resources - it's nice to hear what other's opinions are of them. :-)


I hope you join in the other threads,

Welcome popbeliever. I assume the p-o-p stands for Pocket Of Pears? I attempted to visit the website that you posted, but was not able to access it. I tried two different servers but still had no luck. I will try again another time. In the meantime I will look at the bookstore for the book you spoke of. I have someone in mind that I think will benefit from such a book, if it's what I think it is. Anyway welcome to the board. Blessings.

positive self-talk, faith, and the power and liberation of forgiveness have helped me immensely in the past. :)

Would that book work as well for a multiply disabled person who knows none of their strengths? All the books in the past have failed.

I think you just have to find the right book - one that catches your attention. I won't read a book I don't like, so I'm pretty picky in choosing books, specially when I don't have time to read.

Or Asperger's Syndrome, or Ataxia Telangiectasia, or chronic confusion.... But yeah...gotta find that one book that actually helps. Not like any of the others have.

The books that I like the most and have been the most influencial to me, are books that aren't even self-help books... actually they are actually fictional too. Pounding Hooves, Les Miserables, Angels and Demons, Life of Pi, Blood

I find that I relate better with fictional characters, than to those books written for/about regular people.

I didn't really start reading till I found a book called 'Wild Magic'. I loved the character of that book and the way it was written that I just ate through the entire series in a bout a week's time. After that I started looking for more books that gave me the same feeling. When I fall into a story and see the characters grow as if I am there with them, I cannot help but try to read the book start to finish non-stop.

I started reading, when I was four years old. By the time I was 9 years old, I was reading books meant for 12-14 y.o.

My favorite genre is also fantasy/sci-fi. Heard of Anne McCaffrey?
