I was very excited to receive the follow review of Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons from the Slopes from MidWest Book Review in their “Small Press Bookwatch”.
Synopsis: “Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons from the Slopes” by certified nutritional counselor Kathryn Kemp Guylay (who is also the founder of the national non-profit organization Nuture) uses stories from the author’s personal life as an engaging, often hilarious, backdrop for studying wellness and life lessons. From starting a nonprofit to her family’s journey west and her humbling adventures learning to ski as an adult, Kathryn’s stories inspire and entertain. “Mountain Mantras” offers life lessons on how to: Achieve greater success in life simply by adjusting how you perceive events around you; A 6-step framework to overcoming obstacles in life; Using vision and visualization to turn dreams into reality; Strategies to engage fully in life, while experiencing improved health and vitality.
Critique: As impressively well written, organized and presented, as it is inherently humorous, absorbing, informative, and inspiring, “Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons from the Slopes” is very highly recommended for both community and academic library Self-Help/Self-Improvement and Contemporary American Biography collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that “Mountain Mantras” is also available in a Kindle edition ($7.99).
Thank you so much! Here is the Book Intro video if you haven’t seen it yet. Fun!
