Book of Sufi Healing by S.H.M. Chishti
Book of Sufi Healing by S.H.M. Chishti
5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading, 14 April 2012
This book turned up when I had many deep questions about medicine to which I strongly desired answers. This book changed my life, it set me upon a journey which continues today. It comprehensively presents in English this fascinating system of medicine rooted in the Islamic and Greek traditions. It presents the cosmological framework and the way we are part of the great whole. It shows the centrality of worship to the human being and health. It shows the vital practices of Islamic worship from their health giving and spiritual perspectives. It examines the role of sound, scent, food etc. in a wholistic review of health and healing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, 14 April 2012
This book has remained a classic for almost forty years, it remains a fascinating, brilliant and clear introduction to psycholinguistics. It examines the question of what is language from a structuralist point of view, examines whether language is limited to humans, how children acquire language and the great question of whether language is innate or a learned capacity. The groundbreaking work of Naom Chomsky is examined and the developments and schools within in psycholinguistics are examined in a fairly impartial manner.

The strength of the book is that it is well written, is replete with examples and is fun to read.

Thick Face, Black Heart: The Asian Path to Thrivin&hellip by Chin-ning Chu
5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 14 April 2012
This book is a modern classic. It should be essential reading for the ambitious. It's straight talking, to the point, brutally honest and incredibly useful. I gave my copy to a friend and launched him upon a path of self help book reading, in my opinion all of what I've seen him read is dealt with in this one, the lady goes for the jugular and stays with it. If you stick with it you will uncover gems and treasures continually.

The beginning may not be the easiest read but stick with it the payoff is immense.
