lady in field

They are all great books, which when read will give you the knowledge to make changes to your own lives, physically, intellectually and emotionally.




Sue Baker - our Non Fiction Expert - says of her selections:
'There is no let up in the tidal wave of diet books and slimming guides hitting the shelves in January and while the eating regimes continue, there are increasing numbers of books tackling weight problems through mind control, looking at overeating as another addiction in the same league as alcoholism and drug dependency.' Find out which I rate as the best by looking at my selections in the 2014 New Year, New You category.'




We hope they can help you - if that's what you are looking for.
