This was a wonderful antidote to the "New Age" and The Secret which push positive thinking at the expense of perhaps more realistic thinking. Niro is refreshingly honest about herself and her life. The book makes clear that in order to heal we need to embrace all parts of ourselves including the "negative". I would recommend it to anyone who requires to heal. It isn't always comfortable, but it's real.

Creating a life that heals 29 Mar 2000
By J. W. O'Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a healthcare professional and as someone who has lost freinds and family to AIDS, I was greatly encouraged by this book. At one time, it was required reading by an English professor at Georgia State University. I know a person with AIDS now, whom after reading it, found important information and encouragement to continue living successfully and fully with HIV illness for over 14+ years! A must reading for anyone who wants to retain control of their own life while facing any health challenge. People do not die of AIDS. They die of the fear of inevitable death, pervasive misinformation, and a surrender to the medical and pharmaceutical establishment. This book is a powerful witness to a woman's battle to rob death, personal healing, and triumph over what is seen as a endless or hopeless battle. It is good reading whether you have a life threatening illness or not because it is a true story about hope and personal empowerment!

Why I survive aides Niro Markoff Assisent 3 Mar 2010
By Ardent Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Every so often you come across a book that stands way out from the crowd this is one of them. Niro's journey speaks to all of us and her courage is remarkable and her book is inspiring and inspirational to read. It certainly challenges us to look at your limited belief's about what is possible.

Once again 29 Dec 2005
By Josquin Desprez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Once again someone who believes that the human condition is divine and that we can change our lives ourselves shows that life doesn't have the limitation put on to it by people who are scared of thinking for themselves...or is it that these people want to control life in order to profit from it, or is it that these people want to make themselves out to be victims to avoid taking responsability for the fact that they can change their lives themselves? Don't be a victim, decide that you can change your life yourself and the tools you need will come your way. What you get by making yourself out to be a victim just remains a vicious cycle.
