Fights You’ll Have After Having a Baby: A Self-help Story

After Rachel and Matthew had their first child, they had a couple of fights. Well, okay, more than a couple—they fought for over three years. They fought about schedules. They fought about bad habits. They even fought about the lawn mower.

And besides actually having their child, it was the best thing that could’ve happened.

Chronicling their greatest hits, from the Great Birth Control Debate to the Divorce Joke Showdown, Fights You’ll Have After Having a Baby is a post-partem story with hope. It offers true stories from the field, nitty-gritty advice and, most importantly, a nuanced understanding of what it takes to be married with children.

The Power of Acceptance

Eckhart Tolle and other spiritual teachers insist that continuous meditation is possible for us all. Which brings up a simple yet profound question in many of their readers: Is it, really? Can a normal person like me experience an ongoing sense of oneness with the Divine?

In The Power of Acceptance, one woman attempts to answer this question. Following her year-long attempt to meditate daily, then to remain in the state of meditation as much as possible throughout the day, it chronicles both her significant successes as well as her … well, learning opportunities. Featuring six honest, in-depth interviews with experienced meditators, it is less an advice book than a refreshingly honest look at this widely-practiced prescription for happiness.
