Becoming Myself Book Review:

Bestselling writer and psychotherapist Irvin D. Yalom puts himself on the couch in a lapidary memoir Irvin D. Yalom has made a career of investigating the lives of others. In this profound memoir, he turns his writing and his therapeutic eye on himself. He opens his story with a nightmare: He is twelve, and is riding his bike past the home of an acne-scarred girl. Like every morning, he calls out, hoping to befriend her, "Hello Measles!" But in his dream, the girl's father makes Yalom understand that his daily greeting had hurt her. For Yalom, this was the birth of empathy; he would not forget the lesson. As Becoming Myself unfolds, we see the birth of the insightful thinker whose books have been a beacon to so many. This is not simply a man's life story, Yalom's reflections on his life and development are an invitation for us to reflect on the origins of our own selves and the meanings of our lives.

Becoming Myself Book Review:

God has dreams—just for you Becoming Myself is a hope-filled book for anyone who wonders if her life will ever change—if she will ever change.In Stasi Eldredge’s most intimate book yet, she shares her own struggles with self-worth, weight, and her past as she shows readers how God is faithfully unveiling who we truly are. Stasi urges you to lay down your past thoughts about yourself and receive God’s incredible dreams for you instead. We cannot heal ourselves. We cannot become ourselves by ourselves. But we are not by ourselves. The King of love wants to help us become. God desires to restore us—the real us. As he heals our inner life, he calls us to rise to the occasion of our lives. The most important journey any woman can take is the journey into becoming her true self through the love of God. It's a beautiful paradox. The more of God’s you become, the more yourself you become—the “self” he had in mind when he thought of you before the creation of the world. Discover your truest self—the woman God created you to be—in Becoming Myself.

Being a Rockefeller Becoming Myself Book Review:

A pioneering philanthropist and daughter of American royalty reveals what it was like to grow up in one of the world’s most famous families. The great-granddaughter of John D. Rockefeller, Eileen Rockefeller learned in childhood that while wealth and fame could open any door, they could not buy a feeling of personal worth. The privileges of having servants and lavish summer homes were offset by her parents’ thoughtful yet firm lessons in social obligation, at times by her mother’s dark depressions and mercurial moods, and the competition for attention among her siblings. In adulthood, Rockefeller has yearned to be seen not as an icon but as a woman and mother with a normal life, and like all of us, she had to learn to find her own way. Being a Rockefeller, Becoming Myself is an affirmation of how family shapes our identity and the ways we contribute to the larger family of life, regardless of our origins.

A deeply personal and electrifying memoir by Ellen Burstyn, renowned actress and six-time Academy Award nominee. By the time Ellen Burstyn arrived in New York to study acting, she'd already worked as a Texas fashion model, a Montreal chorus girl, suffered numerous toxic relationships, and just as many name changes and spiritual paths.

This is the graceful story of a personal and professional quest, a life-long journey-by turns triumphant and terrifying, tragic and funny, thoughtful and illuminating.

New and Collected Poems 1975 2015 Book Review:

A new book, the first in over a decade, from acclaimed poet Jay Parini This volume revolves around his deep connection to nature and underlines his concerns about the impacts of pollution and climate change. In these beautiful, haunting poems, Parini writes about the landscapes of mining country, of the railroads of Pennsylvania, of farm country, of worlds lost and families dispersed. He explores faith and how it is tested. He limns the deepest crevices of the human heart and soul. He surprises and moves us. In addition to a complete volume’s worth of new work, called West Mountain Epilogue, offering more than fifty poems never before published in any form, Parini has collected the very best work from his previous four volumes, the poems, as he tells us, “written in the past forty years that I wish to stand by.’ Lavishly and deservingly praised over the decades for his work as an essayist, critic, biographer, novelist, and, especially, poet, Parini shines as never before in this generous volume.

Becoming Myself Book Review:

"The women in this collection were asked, simply, to recall a significant memory of growing up female. They responded generously, with intimate stories of their lives. Instead of the superficial prepackaged blurbs of TV sound bites and press releases, they told stories from their hearts; they told secrets never spoken before. They revealed themselves through stories of personal confusion and discovery, pain and overcoming, rejection and celebration." --From Willa Shalit's Introduction The stories shared by these sixty-seven remarkable women -- writers, actors, musicians, journalists, activists -- include: --Kate Winslet on the media's eagerness to distort women's images. --Zane on her belief in a woman's right to satisfaction. --Lillian Vernon on being a trailblazing entrepreneur. --J.K. Rowling on the transformation wrought by giving birth. Filled with sparkling insights and powerful reflections, Becoming Myself is a gift for every woman.

Becoming MySelf Book Review:

Disability rights advocate Darrell Lynn Jones worked for the civil rights and empowerment of people with disabilities. But she didn’t recognize her professional skills could be used to live effectively with her own chronic illness until she connected the dots between her physical journey and her spiritual journey.

The author came to see her illness as a soul journey—meaning her human traits, including chronic illness, are simply Spirit immersed in a physical experience, using time and space as a playground for creation and discovery. Becoming MySelf offers a fresh look at the new-age idea of creating your own reality and suggests the reality one already has is brimming with gifts and opportunities. This perspective helps you end the discontentment you may have concerning illness, disability, aging, and dying—and the belief that we are victims if we’re sick.

“An empowering memoir/self-help book for anyone contending with a hidden disability or chronic illness.” (Kirkus Indie Review)

Becoming Myself Book Review:

When author Margot S. Biestman was born in 1931, her grandmother told her she came into the world beautiful because she’d been kissed by an angel. The proof: her two dimples, one on each blessed cheek. In Becoming Myself, Biestman offers an extensive and insightful commentary on how personal and professional experiences lead to self-examination and growth. Along with examples of her poems and other creative expressions, she reflects on a youth living among a family of artists, growing up in San Francisco, and becoming a teacher. Biestman’s artistic nature has informed her life’s journey as a maverick who chose not to be boxed in by the social environment she was born into. Becoming Myself: An Eighty-Seven-Year Journey of Engaging the Senses through Breath and Creative Expression resonates with the courage to stay true to oneself and to forge a different and inspiring path.

Becoming Myself Becoming His Book Review:

-'Now with God's help, I shall become myself.'Spiritual growth is a pursuit. It does not happen naturally or without effort. Just like the athlete who trains for a competition, we too must train our hearts and minds to be like Jesus. Our spiritual muscles, like our physical ones, become weak and ineffective when they are not stretched and exercised regularly. Often, Christians may find they are caught up in the 'generality' of living a religious lifestyle, but to truly become the Lord's, we must give him time to work with us. Our days may be so filled with activity and service that we seldom take the time to ask ourselves who it is that God created us to be. If you long for the discipline, order, and focus that Christ speaks of in the Word, then you are longing to discover who God created you to be. See yourself through God's eyes in Becoming Myself, Becoming His.Author Kay Watson lives in Pensacola, Florida, with Scott, her husband of twenty-eight years, and two sons. She has taught in church for over twenty-five years, written curriculum for women and children, and has served as the Women's Ministry Coordinator for the Gateway Church of Christ.

The Art Of Becoming Myself Book Review:

’Nang enthokpa society dudei nang chenningasu kem kaide nattraga nangna adugi society duda change purakpa ama(You can escape from the society if they are pushing you away or you can be the one who brought changes to the society.).’ It was my sister’s words that brought me here. It was one of the painful nights that I went through, and it still hurts to write about it. Growing up in a middle-class family as the youngest child among 5, I received the love in all forms. I grew up playing with the boys, and it wasn’t a surprise to everyone when they found out that I had a girlfriend because I was always a boy, and there were no surprises of me coming out. Of course, like everyone else, they tried to stop me from becoming myself when I was young. I mean, who would happily accept when their sweet daughter is becoming a son? And at school, since I didn’t know how to wear the school uniform, which is Phanek(traditional wrap-around for women), my grandmother had to tie the ends so that it won’t fall off and would untie it when I came back from school for four years. I can’t imagine that I had my bathroom schedule so tight that I never peed for 8 hrs. And I don’t fit in the category, or my character doesn’t tick the box where the society sets for the transmen that they should be good at sports. I’m the total opposite. I’m a writer as I tag myself with a very sensitive heart, and I like to think of myself as a romantic guy. I like the idea of being in love and waiting for her with flowers or watching the sunrise together or holding her hand while driving to a quiet place we only know or the art of writing love. But when I found the person who shared everything I wanted, I was smashed right in the face. I kept questioning myself, and for a while, I was lost. All the while I was blaming society, I realized that we couldn’t make everyone in the whole world accept us, but there are people who do, and that’s it. And thanks to all the books that I’ve read that put words on my subconscious that success is not just about winning, it’s about losing too, but most importantly, it’s about how the Phoenix rises from the ashes. And I found myself again, and this time I was already fit in my idea of success. Back then, my definition of success was to live financially free, but now it changed. And this time, it all makes sense. I was becoming myself, and no amount of money would make me that happy when I had my first shot of Testosterone. You have no idea how happy I was when my voice broke down for the first time. And no one would make me that happy when I saw these teeny tiny beards growing up. I finally started getting comfortable with my body, and I realized success is not about the number of digits in my account or the number of security personnel walking next to me or the number of cars or the fame. It’s about how I perceived myself, how I think of myself and The Art Of Becoming Myself. That is my definition of success, and this is my success story. And my story is not a complaint or resentment towards the society that I went through shit. I’m just trying to show you how we feel about things, and after all, you and I are human beings. I’m just trying to prove that we are normal people with feelings and emotions like you guys have. I want the world to know that we have a heart that can love someone too.

Ambulance Girl Book Review:

The basis for the movie starring Kathy Bates, Ambulance Girl is an inspiring story by a woman who found, somewhat late in life, that “in helping others I learned to help myself.” Jane Stern was a walking encyclopedia of panic attacks, depression, and hypochondria. Her marriage of more than thirty years was suffering, and she was virtually immobilized by fear and anxiety. As the daughter of parents who both died before she was thirty, Stern was terrified of illness and death, and despite the fact that her acclaimed career as a food and travel writer required her to spend a great deal of time on airplanes, she suffered from a persistent fear of flying and severe claustrophobia. Yet, this fifty-two-year-old writer decided to become an emergency medical technician. Stern tells her story with great humor and poignancy, creating a wonderful portrait of a middle-aged, Woody Allen–ish woman who was “deeply and neurotically terrified of sick and dead people,” but who went out into the world to save other people’s lives as a way of saving her own. Her story begins with the boot camp of EMT training: 140 hours at the hands of a dour ex-marine who took delight in presenting a veritable parade of amputations, hideous deformities, and gross disasters. Jane—overweight and badly out of shape—had to surmount physical challenges like carrying a 250-pound man seated in a chair down a dark flight of stairs. After class she did rounds in the emergency room of a local hospital. Each call Stern describes is a vignette of human nature, often with a life in the balance. From an AIDS hospice to town drunks, yuppie wife beaters to psychopaths, Jane comes to see the true nature and underlying mysteries of a town she had called home for twenty years. Throughout the book we follow her as she gets her sea legs, bonds with the firefighters who become her colleagues, and eventually, comes to be known as Ambulance Girl.

A Matter of Death and Life Book Review:

A year-long journey by the renowned psychiatrist and his writer wife after her terminal diagnosis, as they reflect on how to love and live without regret. Internationally acclaimed psychiatrist and author Irvin Yalom devoted his career to counseling those suffering from anxiety and grief. But never had he faced the need to counsel himself until his wife, esteemed feminist author Marilyn Yalom, was diagnosed with cancer. In A Matter of Death and Life, Marilyn and Irv share how they took on profound new struggles: Marilyn to die a good death, Irv to live on without her. In alternating accounts of their last months together and Irv's first months alone, they offer us a rare window into facing mortality and coping with the loss of one's beloved. The Yaloms had numerous blessings—a loving family, a Palo Alto home under a magnificent valley oak, a large circle of friends, avid readers around the world, and a long, fulfilling marriage—but they faced death as we all do. With the wisdom of those who have thought deeply, and the familiar warmth of teenage sweethearts who've grown up together, they investigate universal questions of intimacy, love, and grief. Informed by two lifetimes of experience, A Matter of Death and Life is an openhearted offering to anyone seeking support, solace, and a meaningful life.

Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself Book Review:

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE, STARRING JASON SEGAL AND JESSE EISENBERG, DIRECTED BY JAMES PONSOLDT An indelible portrait of David Foster Wallace, by turns funny and inspiring, based on a five-day trip with award-winning writer David Lipsky during Wallace’s Infinite Jest tour In David Lipsky’s view, David Foster Wallace was the best young writer in America. Wallace’s pieces for Harper’s magazine in the ’90s were, according to Lipsky, “like hearing for the first time the brain voice of everybody I knew: Here was how we all talked, experienced, thought. It was like smelling the damp in the air, seeing the first flash from a storm a mile away. You knew something gigantic was coming.” Then Rolling Stone sent Lipsky to join Wallace on the last leg of his book tour for Infinite Jest, the novel that made him internationally famous. They lose to each other at chess. They get iced-in at an airport. They dash to Chicago to catch a make-up flight. They endure a terrible reader’s escort in Minneapolis. Wallace does a reading, a signing, an NPR appearance. Wallace gives in and imbibes titanic amounts of hotel television (what he calls an “orgy of spectation”). They fly back to Illinois, drive home, walk Wallace’s dogs. Amid these everyday events, Wallace tells Lipsky remarkable things—everything he can about his life, how he feels, what he thinks, what terrifies and fascinates and confounds him—in the writing voice Lipsky had come to love. Lipsky took notes, stopped envying him, and came to feel about him—that grateful, awake feeling—the same way he felt about Infinite Jest. Then Lipsky heads to the airport, and Wallace goes to a dance at a Baptist church. A biography in five days, Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself is David Foster Wallace as few experienced this great American writer. Told in his own words, here is Wallace’s own story, and his astonishing, humane, alert way of looking at the world; here are stories of being a young writer—of being young generally—trying to knit together your ideas of who you should be and who other people expect you to be, and of being young in March of 1996. And of what it was like to be with and—as he tells it—what it was like to become David Foster Wallace. "If you can think of times in your life that you’ve treated people with extraordinary decency and love, and pure uninterested concern, just because they were valuable as human beings. The ability to do that with ourselves. To treat ourselves the way we would treat a really good, precious friend. Or a tiny child of ours that we absolutely loved more than life itself. And I think it’s probably possible to achieve that. I think part of the job we’re here for is to learn how to do it. I know that sounds a little pious." —David Foster Wallace
