Exercise Essentials

Download eBook This review may contain some spoilers. Exercise Essentials is a relatively simple guide to getting fit and staying that way. It’s written by Billy Goco Jr, a certified personal trainer. You don’t have to be a gym nut to follow this manual; it’s geared towards the beginner. The first stages of the book explain the best practise habits you’ll need to follow if you want to get the best results. It also explains the potential pitfalls that may arise, and how to overcome them. You’ll also find workout terminology, plus information on the muscular and skeletal systems. There’s also a workout program to help you get started. Or if you’re more seasoned, you may find the workout program useful to jump straight into. The information is presented clearly, with the use tables and pictures where appropriate. However, at times the information lacks character and reads like any Wikipedia article. The author interjects some humor here and there, but I think the work could benefit from more of a distinct personality, so as to separate it from the competition. If the author takes that informal approach to the content, I’d find the information easier to digest. The presentation is decent, and the work was largely free of errors. This is just one opinion.

NLP

Download eBook This review may contain some spoilers. A brief guide aimed at rewiring your brain in order to overcome your fears. There are a lot of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) books on the market, and this offering does little to overcome its competition. The author opens with the principles and history of NLP, before tackling the nature of phobias and moving on to useful techniques for defeating them. Weighing in at 27 pages, the summaries, tips and examples are concise, but the language reads at a hurried pace. This does not necessarily have to be a bad thing, but for a book that relies on educating people, a broader expansion on the methods provided would have been welcome to this reader. There was certainly room to expand on some of the example scenarios of a person suffering from a phobia. It’s important to make a human connection with the reader, and I never felt that with this book. Regarding the size of the work, there is an argument to be made that the author must battle with keeping information that is wholly relevant, and avoiding padding out the manuscript. After all, other books on NLP offer a staggering amount of words to make one point. Yet, this author’s work reads as a bullet point, streamlined version of other texts out there. In this regard, I believe that he has chosen the wrong end of the spectrum. Too little information. Useful information, no doubt, but expect a quick lesson. If you are looking for such an experience, it may just be for you. This is just one opinion. If...
