Hostile and contentious divorces aren’t uncommon. But if you’ve been separated or divorced for more than a year or two and things haven’t gotten better, something is very wrong.

Pat Palmer and Melissa Alberti Froehner -Teen Esteem

Image: 

Depression, violence, pressures to succeed, eating disorders -- being a teenager seems more difficult with every generation. Confronted daily with demands from parents, teachers, and peers, teens have to have refusal skills and positive attitudes to meet the challenges of life in a world which requires them to grow up before their time. Without patronizing or lecturing, Teen Esteem helps teenagers develop the skills needed to handle stress, peer pressure, substance abuse, anger, sexual expression, more.

Gary D. McKay, Wayne F. Peate, and Erik Mansager-Body Mind & Spirit

Three experts: a physician, a psychologist, and a spiritually oriented clinical counselor intertwine their experiences and knowledge to address the "whole you". They show that there is no gap between physical, mental, and spirital aspects of health; all aspects are interrelated and it's powerfully helpful to see this way. Blending their approaches produces a result that is greater than the sum of the parts -- like a "human quilt" -- each contributes to a healthy, satisfying life.

Unplanned events — chance occurrences — more often determine life and career choices than all the careful planning we do.
