There are plenty of round-ups at this time of year which make for very good quick summary readings on the year gone by. Here are the The Life Adventure team’s top 5 reads – books that we feel could very well change your life:
Why the past is always present by Ronald A Ruden
We’ve talked about trauma a fair amount on The Life Adventure, mainly because it is our belief that unresolved trauma is often the cause of ongoing problems. The book offers valuable information and understanding about how emotional trauma can get locked in the body along with techniques on how to release it. For an excerpt try here.
Molecules of Emotion by Candace B Pert (forward by Deepak Chopra)
Why do we feel the way we feel? How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from each other or do they function together as parts of an interconnected system? In her ground-breaking book Molecules of Emotion, Candace Pert provides startling and decisive answers to these and other challenging questions that scientists and philosophers have pondered for centuries.

Without the Woo Woo by Austin Wyse & Dawn Bailey
Without the Woo Woo’ is a mainstream and down to earth self-development book that not only brings powerful realisations to your conscious awareness, but it also offers practical application suggestions to help you move forward. Having both made considerable life journeys and with many combined years of experience in the field of human behaviour and consciousness Austin Wyse and Dawn Bailey have compiled these new and ancient personal development insights to help you change the way you feel about your life forever.
Human Universe by Brian Cox & Andrew Cohen
Human Universe is first and foremost a love letter to humanity; a celebration of our outrageous fortune in existing at all. Brian Cox has chosen to write his letter in the language of science, because there is no better demonstration of our magnificent ascent from dust to paragon of animals than the exponentiation of knowledge generated by science. Two million years ago we were apemen. Now we are spacemen. That has happened, as far as we know, nowhere else. That is worth celebrating. A great read that will make you go ‘wow’ many, many times.
Whack around the head – Purpose, Passion and Power at work right now by Sharon Eden
This book shows how to discover how the emotional gap from being dispirited or bored to being enthusiastic about your work is actually minute, and easily achievable through engaging with your purpose, passion and power. If you’re suffering with stress, depression, Monday morning blues, lack of life purpose or direction or low energy and lack of enthusiasm then we highly recommend this book to you. Sharon Eden is a psychotherapist and NLP Trainer. She debunks the mumbo-jumbo of personal development, stripping away mystery, jargon and hype with her transformative coaching approach.
