I just finished the second via an audio book (very well done, it fits the format of the book well )during my commute and have started the first. I think everyone should read both with parents giving their kids a copy when they leave home.

Definitely "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne! Completely changed my outlook on goal-setting.

I'm reading Mindful Eating by Brian Wansink PhD. Its awesome. Great for those of us who over eat. great for those of us that dont think we do but actually do. Great for those of us in great health that eat healthy just to better understand how the mind works and how we and others are subconsciously influenced.
