Don't Let Your Kids Kill You: A Guide for Parents of Drug and Alcohol Addicted Children
Don't Let Your Kids Kill You: A Guide for Parents of Drug and Alcohol Addicted Children
von Charles Rubin
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Take the First Step--Read This Book, 2. Dezember 1999
"Don't Let Your Kids Kill You" is not written by a psychologist or a therapist. It is written by an ordinary parent who watched in horror as his two children were swept away by the insidious and powerful tide of drug abuse.
As any parent knows who has an alcholic or drug addicted teenager, the overwhelming feeling of helplessness can drive you to despair. This book clearly defines both your parental responsibility and your limits. It teaches you to "let go and let God"--one of the basic tenets of such support groups as Al-anon and Tough Love.
If you are frightened and confused by the self-destructive behavior of one of your children, if you do not know where to turn for help, read this book.
It just may be the first step back to a sane life in which you reassert your right to a happy and fulfilling existence even if your child continues to pursue the road to hell.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Mind of Compassion, 30. August 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind (Taschenbuch)
"Simplify, simplify, simplify." Thoreau's message is aptly repeated in "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind." No need to study philosophical theories, no need to go and sit on some mountaintop, no need to engage in spiritual gymnastics: Shunryu Suzuki encourages his students to learn to express their true nature in their everyday activity.
The book is actually a transcript of talks given at a Zen center. The only shortcoming of the book, then, is what is lost in the process of transcribing-the tone of voice, the emphasis on a particular word or phrase, the demeanor of the speaker. Nevertheless, Suzuki expresses himself with such clarity that the reader has no trouble understanding the many lessons that help the spiritual seeker find his way home.


The Last Temptation of Christ
The Last Temptation of Christ
von Nikos Kazantzakis
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 15,07

5.0 von 5 Sternen A passionate account of the life of Christ., 16. Mai 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Last Temptation of Christ (Taschenbuch)
If you are looking for a wholly different perspective on the life of Christ-a radical departure from the pious and saintly myth-read "The Last Temptation of Christ." Kazantzakis's imagery and vivid descriptions breathe life into the stiff and wooden idol of the Christian pulpit. The reader is left with the impression that here is a man that is at once human and heroic-a model for all those who seek to live a truly spiritual life.
