 A short book but packed full of wit and wisdom, you'll read through this lovely piece of fiction in a short amount of time but will continue to

 I highly recommend this book!

"The Basic Essentials of Knots for the Outdoors" by Cliff Jacobson, A Book Review

 This is a super handy book!
 First the book teaches you about different kinds of rope, how to prepare a new rope, then jumps into tying knots.

The book covers many different knots, from simple knots to more complicated types, even splicing.  The directions for how to tie each knot are very clear and simple to follow, with very easy to understand, clear line drawings.

 If your looking to learn to tie knots then this is a great book to learn from! I recommend this book!

"The Five Love Languages; How to Express Heartfelt Communication to Your Mate" by Gary Chapman, A Book Review

 This is a wonderful book! It very clearly explains how people each have their own "love language" or ways of showing their love. Since this is the case, problems can arise when your loved one has a different "language" then you do, expressing their love for you in that language and expecting you to in turn express your love in a similar manner.
  The book carefully divides the languages into five different "love languages",then walks you through each individually and discusses many ways for you to show your love in that "language".

 The book also includes a "Love Language" quiz for you each to take so that you each can discover your own love languages.

 This is a must read for all couples!

"You Just Don't Understand!; Women and Men in conversation" by Deborah Tannen, a Book Review

 What a great book! This very educational, excellent book extensively explores the differences between how men and women talk and what they mean, helping you to understand the other so you can better understand and communicate.

  If your looking to deepen your understanding of the other gender and to learn how to effectively communicate clearly then this is a must read!

 As you'll learn in this book, men and women truly are in different worlds, different cultures. Men and women are at a disadvantage when it comes to cross-gender communication.  What may have came across as hurtful to you, may actually have been an effort to help or show love.  By putting to use what you learn in this book you can start to open clear lines of communication and reap the benefits.

 I highly recommend this book!

 This is a very neat book! All about the Mongolian saddle, history and uses. The book has many interesting, lovely black and white drawings.

 The book instructs you on how to make your own Mongolian saddle, with step-by-step instructions and also how to decorate the finished saddle!

 A very interesting and educational read even if you aren't planning on making your own saddle!

"Fidelity: How to Create a Loving Relationship That Lasts" by Thich Nhat Hanh, a Book Review

 This is a wonderful, simple manual for developing and maintaining true love!  Explaining what true love is and what it is not, and clearly walks you through the changes and growth you need to develop within yourself so that you can be a person who can truly love.

 While this book is written from a Buddhist view point anyone can gain much wisdom and sound advice from this book regardless of your religious beliefs.

 Even though this book is short compared to many books on relationships, it is hard hitting and a well of deep wisdom and knowledge. This is not a light read if you are serious in your desire and commitment for self-growth for your own, as well as your partner's sake and benefit.

 I found this book to have many incredibly beautiful, wise passages and highly recommend this book if you are looking to seriously deepen your love in a true and real way, at the vary roots of love.
