You: On A Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management

You: On A Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management by Mehmet C. Oz & Michael F. Roizen
People can not get enough of this book. The authors are everywhere from Good Morning America to being featured on Oprah! Roizen and Oz will invigorate you with equal parts information, motivation, and change-your-life action to show you how your brain, stomach, hormones, muscles, heart, genetics, and stress levels all interact biologically to determine if your body is the size of a baseball bat or of a baseball stadium. In YOU: On a Diet, Roizen and Oz will redefine what a healthy figure is, then take you through an under-the skin tour of the organs that influence your body's size and its health. You'll even be convinced that the key number to fixate on is not your weight, but your waist size, which best indicates the medical risks of storing too much fat.

The Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography (Oprah's Book Club)

The Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography (Oprah's Book Club) by Sidney Poitier
"I have no wish to play the pontificating fool, pretending that I've suddenly come up with the answers to all life's questions. Quite that contrary, I began this book as an exploration, an exercise in self-questing. In other words, I wanted to find out, as I looked back at a long and complicated life, with many twists and turns, how well I've done at measuring up to the values I myself have set."—Sidney Poitier
When Oprah selected The Measure of a Man as her latest book club selection it flew off the shelves. Not only is it what we are reading it's what you are reading too! If you aren't then come on in or call to reserve a copy today!

In The Audacity of Hope, Obama engages themes raised in his keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, shares personal views on faith and values and offers a vision of the future that involves repairing a "political process that is broken" and restoring a government that has fallen out of touch with the people.
