Fish For Life: A Remarkable Way To Achieve Your Dreams
by Stephen C. Lundin
The internationally acclaimed business bestseller Fish! and follow ups Fish! Tales and Fish! Sticks have been a massive global success - with over a million copies sold in the States and over 400,000 copies in the UK. Now, for the first time, we're shown how to put the unique Fish! Philosophy into action in all areas of our lives, ranging from losing weight to improving our personal finances. Using the same easy-to-read parable format used in the original Fish! title, this is a both a true follow-up to that book (featuring two of the original characters) and a stand-alone work that can be read on its own.

Through its unfolding story, we witness the many challenges encountered by a newly created family as they start building a life together - working parents, growing family, school tension, economic stress, and weight gain - and just how they are overcome. From this appealing metaphor we can obtain accessible wisdom and applicable insights which can be applied for achieving happiness and wellbeing in our own lives.

Paula
by Isabel Allende
Isabel Allende presents a soul-baring memoir that seizes the reader like a novel of suspense. Written for her daughter Paula when she became ill and slipped into a coma, Paula is the colorful story of Allende's life -- from her early years in her native Chile, through the turbulent military coup of 1973, to the subsequent dictatorship and her family's years of exile. In the telling, bizarre ancestors reveal themselves, delightful and bitter childhood memories surface, enthralling anecdotes of youthful years are narrated and intimate secrets are softly whispered.
