3-0 out of 5 stars nice but..
The book is nice but its very simple. I feel like I could have given this book to my 14 year old sister and she would throw it away. I like the intention behind it but it is far from motivating.

This was a wonderful book and I plan on getting some of the negative people in my life a copy.

This is an excellent book with timely, poignant information which I have already used again and again.

5-0 out of 5 stars A brilliant reference
If you are like me, and interested in this field, then I recommend you also get the The Energy Medicine Kit, which has a DVD where she demonstrates various energy routines, and an easy to follow five minute daily routine. This is now part of my daily routine. Everyone should have a daily routine for moving energy.

The book and the kit are stand alone products. I highly recommend both to everyone. I got the energy medicine kit first, and I am glad I did because there is nothing quite like seeing the exercises demonstrated, and I know I would not be doing these techniques properly if I did not first see them shown. The mutimedia is format is easier to follow and use.

The book also contains the five minute routine, and is more encyclopedic. If you are not already an advanced healer I recommend getting the kit first, because you are more likely to be able to follow a visual demonstration correctly. You are also less likely to understand the concept of energy testing without a visual demonstration which is like watching a magic show.

There is so much content in this book, which is based on the twin concepts of touch for healing and kinesiology (energy testing) in which she tests your muscle resistance,and then treats. Donna can see energy, but you can achieve the same thing with energy testing.

In this book, you learn about opening the chakras, and celtic weave, figure eights, strange flows, the aura, eye movement exercises, neurovasculars or fight or flight response and many other things.

If you have health challenges, you owe it to yourself to do everything you can to resolve them. Seek professional help, go see an energy healer to resolve the issues, and by all means use the techniques in this book, and the energy kit.

If you are like me you will be very pleased with this product. If you are unsure about which one to buy first, get the energy medicine kit. I wonder if this review was helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars an amazing tool to heal yourself
Im a massage therapist and a healer. But with energy medicine there is hope for people who don't find solutions for their illnesses. start doing the dayly energy routine, and already you will start improving. ( on the first chapters in the book)

Do the exercises related to your emotions. (chapter about five elements)

balance your meridians while pressing your neurolymphatic points (p 84)

if you've got a cavity try sedating the related meridian everyday during 4 weeks. I did it and the cavity disappeared. the dentist could just not believe it (on the chapter about pain)

if around you two people are quarrelling just zip yourself up and then zip them up, (tracing 3 times central meridian from pubic bone to the lower lip) even in your mind. it's amazing how fights stop when I zip people up. (this one we found it using logic)

this is a GREAT book and those are powerful teachings.

Im so grateful to Donna Eden to have published such knowledge, Many thanks


5-0 out of 5 stars A "must have" book energy medicine
I am basically familiar with energy medicine and have had acupuncture before. This book takes you to the next level in how to do energy exercises to improve your health, while explaining basics very well also. Donna Eden's style is entertaining and informative.

If you buy one book on energy medicine, you should definitely buy this one.

this is a very difficult book to follow on the kindle.it refers to text and illustrations by page numer but you have no real way of skipping to that page and just have to wait till you get there which is frustrating.for esample it will talk about tapping the 8th chakra and tells you to look at the chart on page 79.where the hell is 79 on the kindle.plus many of these practices require a partner.all in all very disappointing. ...

I read tarot professionally and have recommended this book more times than I can count.

I have read this book and put into practice the techniques I have been waiting to learn, from someone, to help me manage my "sensitivity".

Great, practical advise and tools for your toolbox to help you manage your energy, deflect energy which is not harmonious with your own, and empathize with others without soaking up their suffering.

Anyone who has been told more than once that they're "too sensitive" will absolutely benefit from reading this book.

Product Description

With The Energy Cure, Dr. William Bengston presents astonishing evidence that challenges us to totally rethink what we believe about our ability to heal. Drawing on his scientific research, incredible results, and mind-bending questions, Bengston invites us to follow him along his 35-year investigation into the mystery of hands-on healing and to discover a technique that may activate your healing abilities. Part memoir and part instruction, this provocative book explores: Bengston's paradigm-shifting experimental results and why they seem so difficult for some medical practitioners to accept - Image cycling, a unique preparation method for a hands-on-healing treatment - Why traditional Western medicine isn't always best, the value of skepticism, the strengths of energy medicine, and more.

5-0 out of 5 stars "Why Haven't you Won a Nobel Prize?"
The above title comes from Dr.Bengston's book and is a question asked in a doubting voice by his patients and other people. Why indeed? It is one to be answered by all readers. In his book Dr.Bengston presents astonishing clinical and experimental evidence that challenges the paradigm of Western medical
science. He summarizes his 35 years relentless investigation into the mystery of hands-on healing, in the face of constant rejection and lack of support. His paradigm shifting experimental results with mice and humans are presented in an easy conversational style, with a constant attitude of scepticism and a professional approach, asking hard questions of himself and others involved.

A real sceptic may enjoy this sceptical attitude, and Dr. Bengston's findings that it is easier for him to cure a doubter than a believer in energy healing. An aggresive cancer remits faster than a slower progressing one, and a cancer in a petrie dish does not react at all.

The healer wanting to learn the method is invited to follow the detailed instructions presented in the book, or take a course. Bill Bengston's aim is to duplicate himself as wide as possible, he says that anyone can learn to do it, even if Ben, from whom he has learned
it, was a "natural" healer and psychic. Tests conducted during healing sessions show that The healer who learns the Bengston method starts producing different brain wave frequencies, and harmonizes them with the brain of the patient.

It was a challenge for me not to feel enraged by the fact that instead of open-minded welcome or scientific curiosity, the medical and scientific establishments are doing their best to put obstacles in his way and wipe out thishealing method that could eliminate so much suffering and loss of life. Bill relates the case of two friends, one of whom is still enjoying her family life, after he cured her, while the other has died years ago, after the tortures of chemo and radiation. Oh, once healed with the Bengston method, the patient ( or the mouse) is cancer immune for the rest of their natural life.

This book is a real milestone in the annals of energy medicine, and provides hope for the coming generations to see themedical world of healing move ahead into the quantum physics paradigm, with an ivitation to learn and practice a proven self-healing method.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Energy Cure
When I started reading this book I approached the subject with an open mind. I was pleasantly surprised that it had clinical trials and science to back up his claims. The actual proof in the pudding was my actual experience with his approach. I have been able to heal someone onhis long distance approach and heal my knee injury. The book is well written and somewhat entertaining. The book includes the actual procedure for energy healing.

Product Description

Addressing the sustainable energy crisis in an objective manner, this enlightening book analyzes the relevant numbers and organizes a plan for change on both a personal level and an international scale—for Europe, the United States, and the world. In case study format, this informative reference answers questions surrounding nuclear energy, the potential of sustainable fossil fuels, and the possibilities of sharing renewable power with foreign countries. While underlining the difficulty of minimizing consumption, the tone remains positive as it debunks misinformation and clearly explains the calculations of expenditure per person to encourage people to make individual changes that will benefit the world at large.

5-0 out of 5 stars Missed my stop twice because of it.
...because I was so engrossed.

First, I want to congratulate MacKay for being all about the numbers.He has his opinions, sure.But, in the end, what really matters with CO2 is boring old arithmetic:How much does it cost?How long will it last?How much energy can be delivered?How much energy can be saved?How much space will it take?More than anything else, he provides us with an intellectual toolkit on how to measure different approaches.Taking the basic raw numbers, such as incoming sunlight and available surface area, multiply them by an efficiency factor.Simple, elegant, powerful.

His approach also tells us where OUR own greatest energy use, as individuals, is likely coming from.Which tells us where WE can improve and where we should not bother.

Now, I don't agree with everything he says, but the observations below by no mean justify any less than 5 stars:

-Nuclear power may not be renewable, but say a 100 year supply of uranium would nicely tidy us over till we found other energy sources.So it shouldn't be dismissed that quickly.

-His numerical analysis is relentlessly English in outlook.England's geography imposes a fairly specific set of constraints that would apply differently to other countries.Which he admits - noting for example that the US could make solar energy work in its southwest deserts, as England could not.That's not so much a flaw with the book as, well, a feature.We need another edition for Canada and the US.

-I am not always fully convinced by his calculations.For example, he relates fuel consumption in cars to the cube of the speed, IIRC and backs it up with some empirical data.And also links it to the number of stop/starts in city driving.But, one of the most common recommendations we hear to save gas is to accelerate slowly which really does not appear in his calculations.Are we getting the full picture?I think a broader admission of the need for "engineering fudge factors", not just simple predictive equations, would have been welcome.

-Costs are not covered much.Seeing as there is only so much money around, the best solution may be the one which is affordable, not just the best that is theoretically possible.

Honestly, I am only mentioning these points to highlight how little there is to criticize about this book.Praising it with faint criticism if you wish.If only more of the climate change advocates were as rigorous in their analysis we would have much better much better sets of policy options to choose from.It is one thing to convince people that climate change is happening, another to convince them to take action, potentially at personal cost.If you then mess that up by prescribing insufficiently thought out, dogmatic, solutions that is really a shame.This book is a huge step towards teaching us how to analyze possible solutions critically.

Finally, one of his most important points is that we can't _always_ say NO to everything.Most renewables DO take up space and they DO change the environment.My area has had years of impact studies to birds and scenery of offshore wind turbines.Ditto run-of-river hydro objections.What it hasn't had is much new generation capacity.

5-0 out of 5 stars exallent service!!!!!!
the book i ordered arrived in wonderful condition very quickly after i ordered it! thank you very much! wonderful doing business with you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cuts through all the misleading hype
Richard Feynman once asked me if energy is a conserved quantity how come we have so many different names for the same thing?All the different units, giga this, mega that, makes it hard for even an educated citizen to get his or her hands around the actual amounts of production and consumption.MacKay does a great job of solving that problem by using one understandable measure - kilowatts hours per person per day.In doing, so he highlights how significant the task of providing adequate energy is likely to become in future years and how little we have done about it to date.

5-0 out of 5 stars Maybe the best non-fiction book I have ever read
It's such a good book. Almost every other book about renewable energy provides you with speculations. This book is about facts and numbers, but it's not boring or tiring. Reading it was not only informative, but also a great pleasure because it's extremely well written.

4-0 out of 5 stars Approachable and Systematic Primer on Sustainable Energy
This book was amazingly well written, and frankly, it scared the hell out of me. In clear concise language the author describes many alternative energy sources without the flimsy "if everyone unplugged their cell phone chargers we could power X houses" foolishness. He used physics and graphs. To show the land costs of some of the energy projects he used *gasp* maps.

Our civilization needs to make hard decisions about our energy future. This book is an essential resource for citizens. It truly gives you the facts about energy sources without the Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt that many activists and lobbyists rely on. I know that I'm going to send a copy to all my representatives and tell them to get moving on helping the US become energy independent (a cause I didn't care that much about until reading this book).

And, finally, this is a free book. If you own a Kindle DX, go download the PDF in high definition from the author's website. The print is a little small, but it was worth saving the $30.

5-0 out of 5 stars donna eden's energy medicine kit
For a hands-on approach to better health, the kit has an audio cd, dvd, and a large deck of illustrated "cards".The kit (approx. $25 new) is practical and immediate, almost a cliff's note version of the book. You can try any one exercise just by viewing any card in the deck. You do not need to be physically fit or able-bodied to do many exercises either.
An incredibly affordable price to pay for better health for an individual or family.I've read the book one and a half times.Itwould make a nice complement when you feel well in order to maintain your health, or if you require explanations as to why the exercises work.

5-0 out of 5 stars A safe and effective way to stabilize one's energetic field.
I have tried following some Tai Chi and Chi Gung/Qi Gong books and videos with less than desirable results.Such Chinese Energetic Healing methods require that one have the guidance of a master to adapt the exercises for each individual.Reading Donna's story in the accompanying booklet, I discovered that I am sensitive to people's energetic fields.Also, two metaphysics practitioners had told me that I am sensitive to energy.
I have found that none of the exercises that Donna Eden highlights in this kit depletes my energy or causes strange sensations.This has been a great introduction to energetic medicine.This a very well put together kit: DVD, CD, cards, booklet and glass pendulum in a black velvety pouch.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little kit for covering the basics of energy medicine

5-0 out of 5 stars It Works
I have tried the methods given in the DVD. Wow! All methods work.

There are 1 technique that is very good for releasing thoughts called Forehead Neurovascular Points. Hold your forehead with both hands. There is 2 lumps on your fore head near the hair line. 4 other fingers on one lump. Thumb on the temple. Use both hands to cover temples and the 2 lumps, left hand on left temple and lump while right hand on the right temple and lump. Without moving your hands, think about something bothering you until you find that you can think no more. Funny part is that you stop thinking after a while and the most interesting is you won't think about the same thing in the future anymore.

If this method works for you, you should try the rest.......

Tip : better to get the DVD than the book because it is easier to learn how to do it. ... Read more

Exploring why people pray, The Energy of Prayer examines the applications and effectiveness of prayer in Buddhist and other spiritual traditions. The book introduces several meditation methods that re-envision prayer as an inclusive, accessible practice that is not tied to a particular religious or spiritual affiliation, but rather that helps anyone create healthy lives through the power of awareness and intention. Included are visualization and breathing exercises as well as a rich sampling of prayers, chants, and invocations from the Buddhist tradition. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Add this book to your list of must haves.Very well written. Thich tries to re-interpret scripture-not good.
The book is very well written, easy to understand. As a Christian who also appreciates Buddhist I found this book helped me see prayer from a different perspective.

5-0 out of 5 stars Prayer: A movement in silence
Meditation and prayer are aspects of the same process - the journey from the superficial contents of the surface mind to the depths of experience that transcends mind. For this movement to take place there must be stillness, an openness of both mind and heart. This is where God's messages can be heard. But, if our minds are cluttered with beliefs, thoughts, perceptions and emotional reactivity based on the past, on memories that are dead, then there is no room for God to enter. This inner silence and openness and kindness is described as mindfulness, the sensory awareness of the open mind and open heart in which there is complete presence. God speaks when there is presence; the other guy enters when there is reactivity and unawareness.
The essence of Buddhism is not an attack on theism; it does not attack the notion of God or any other divine entity. That is a common misunderstanding. The core of the Buddha's message is " Look and find out for yourself. Don't attach to the superficial products of the thinking mind that say "There is", "There is not." That is way that takes us away from God.
Mindfulness is a way of tuning in to that which is beyond the superficial; it is a movement towards truth and away from non-truth. That is also the same movement as prayer.
If you wish to learn more about mindfulness, I also recommend 'The Path of Mindfulness Meditation' by Dr Peter Strong, an in-depth exploration of mindfulness meditation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Helpful, and Inspirational
Thich Nhat Hanh has written a wonderful little book on prayer that is accessible to virtually anyone.I bought the book back in June of 2006 and find myself still going back to it and turning through its pages for ideas, inspiration and solace.I have shared the book with family and friends -- and everyone, regardless whether they are Christian, followers of Eastern traditions, or agnostic, have all expressed how the book has helped them and that it is a living treasure for them.I particularly find Hanh's writing to be inviting and filled with rich lovingkindness.

The full title of the book rings true:The Energy of Prayer: How to Deepen Your Spiritual Practice, and the text serves a spiritual guide for anyone who is open-minded.The various chapters in the book include: Does Prayer Work?; The Object of Prayer; Heart, Body, Spirit; The Role of Prayer in Medicine; Meditation and Healing.The appendixes include Meditation Exercises, and Buddhist Prayers and Gathas.

I continue to appreciate the Energy of Prayer and thank Hanh for writing such a great little gem on the wonders of prayer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Building on Strength
Thich Nhat Hanh has written may books over the years. His focus is simple.Explain how his practice works for HIM & how this may help you. This latest addition to his library is a gem. I have bought one for each of my three children for Christmas discussion and, hopefully, an addition to their daily practice.

Product Description
This groundbreaking book explains how to tap into your body's energy not only to change your health, but to change your behaviors and thought patterns as well.

Your body is comprised of energy pathways and energy centers that are in constant motion, a dynamic interplay with other energies and with your cells, organs, immune system, mood, and thoughts. If you can shift these energies, you can influence your physical health, your emotional patterns, and your state of mind.

The Healing Power of Energy Psychology gives simple step-by-step instructions that will help you to:

- overcome fear, guilt, shame, jealousy, or anger
- change unwanted habits and behaviors
- enhance your ability to love, succeed, and enjoy life

The energy approach presented in this book can help bring about significant change in your life. With this strategy, stubborn phobias often fade in minutes; the lifelong effects of an early trauma can frequently be reduced or completely eliminated; uncontrollable anger can rapidly become manageable; even elusive physical problems may respond where other treatments have failed. The Healing Power of Energy Psychology is an amazing tool that puts the ability to effect change directly into your hands, and finally gives you control over your fears, pain, and destructive behaviors. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Kudos from a Chakra Author
I have written a book and teach classes on the chakras and have found the exercises in this book to be very useful in helping my students move through places of stuck energy in the body. The book works with the meridians, but the meridians do go through the chakras. Opening any parts of our energy systems helps to open other parts of it. I bring this book to my classes and recommend it to my students. The exercises in the "Circuits of Joy" chapter are very easy and effective for feeling more connected in the body and releasing emotional pain to feel lighter and more joyful. Great exercises for depression. The descriptions and diagrams are clear and easy to understand. Tapping is also a well-proven technique for releasing emotional trauma and self-limitations. It is used by therapists of various modalities, and is taught in this book. I thought I had lost my copy, and ordered a second one. I found the first one and gave the new one to my daughter, who is a counselor. She also likes it very much. This, and "Energy Medicine" by Donna Eden, are two books I would not be without...Marcia Phillips, author of "Seven Portals To Your Soul: An Accessible Guide for Mending Your Life".

1-0 out of 5 stars Lack of science, lots of snake oil
Question:Where are the results of the peer-reviewed, randomized, controlled, double-blind studies?

Answer:There aren't any!!

This book is the equivalent of getting the cart before the horse.If it's so effective, then let's have the scientific evidence that shows its efficacy.Most books written by psychologists are written on the basis of the result of years of scientific research that use accepted research methods.This book is written on the "promise" of studies that might be done "someday" and nothing but excuses for why there are yet to be any proper studies.Sorry, but I don't have time or money to waste on "promises" as there are many, many promises that never come to fruition.At this point, this promise isn't science.It's snake oil.The funniest part is a pilot study would be sooooo simple to conduct, which would then either make way for more research or lay the matter to rest, if only there were a scientist in the room!

5-0 out of 5 stars Energy Healing - EFT
This is one of the very best books on Energy Healing I have come across. A fully detailed method of healing emotional turmoil by using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)is described in the first half of the book. Wonderful energy exercizes complete this wonderful book on healing self. Outstanding energy healing for self. Highly recommended.

Amazon.com Review
The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial andPersonal Fulfillment, by Maria Nemeth, Ph.D., outlines adistinctly unique approach to one of the most dominant yet forbiddentopics in modern society: money, and how we deal with it. A clinicalpsychologist who once lost $35,000 in a fraudulent investment scheme,Nemeth learned from that ordeal (and similar experiences of friendsand associates) how most of us develop relationships with money, andthe ways in which we subsequently can bring these in line with ouractual dreams and realities. She initially used this knowledge tostart a workshop called You and Money, which eventually attracted morethan 4,500 participants and led to the development of concepts nowdelineated in this book. Quoting relevant wisdom espoused by thoseranging from Joseph Campbell and Ram Dass to Mark Twain and DorothyParker, Nemeth sets out "12 principles for personal fulfillment"designed to help readers "uncover the hidden landscape of beliefs,behavior patterns, and habits that underlie and sometimes subvert howyou use money and other forms of energy." The result is a refreshing,useful, and surprisingly accessible mixture of universal financialadvice and the much rarer--but no less important--ethereal side offiscal self-management. --Howard Rothman ...

The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment

The principles described in this book can be applied to all aspects of life. Dr. N supplies the tools for the reader to look at their relationship with money from a spiritual point of view; to dig deep within ourselves to find the core of our money issues AND to overcome those issues.

5-0 out of 5 stars Money
Excellent! A must read for everyone whether you have money or not. The author takes the reader on an interesting journey that helps you to understand the relationship between your earning power, material possessions and closely held beliefs. I strongly recommend this book.

The book has a lot of good information with a different view of money.There are many practical exercises to help with money issues.

Marie Nemeth takes a subject most of us would prefer to avoid and takes us on an adventure to discover how to consciously direct our money towards what we care about most. I found this book engaging, practical, wise, insightful, and clear. One chapter after the next delivers the goods--with excellent questions at the end of each chapter to cement the learning.The chapter on "Scarcity Is One of Your Greatest Teachers" and the Forgiveness exercise alone would be worth every penny!Who wouldn't benefit from having a more conscious relationship with their money!

1-0 out of 5 stars Possibly good children's book.For an adult, basic & painfully poor editing.
The book might be excellent to those teaching their children about money (i.e., for one's children, not for anyone over, say 15).It is not necessarily bad material, but poorly edited and in any case, frustratingly basic.

One of those books where the title grabs you, but the content disappoints immediately. Slooooow reading that calls for an editor.Overly simplistic to a thinking audience looking at the abstract/psychological/behavioral aspects of money/wealth.

A sample: "Imagine if a laser beam wasn't bouncing all over the obstacles and could get right to the heart of the matter, that would be using your money energy efficiently, consciously, and powerfully...You will clear away many of the boulders that have been in your path...When you and I have an idea and begin to take it into physical reality, there is an incredible shift in the energy that it takes"For an adult, this is tiring to read.

Better alternatives are "wealthy and wise" or "everyday irrationality", "hooked" , "the high price of materialism", "my vast fortune", or perhaps more analogous is "creating affluence".This genre demands a good book. ... Read more

"Our civilization's ever-increasing hunger for energy-and its fixation on fossil fuels to provide that energy-is in the process of imploding on itself as our population grows and its demographics change. Yet we live in a world of tough realities, where an elegant solution simply does not exist." 2GreenEnergy founder Craig Shields provides a broad survey of the subject, presenting 25 interviews with the widest possible variety of subject matter specialists-each chosen to provide the reader with an accessible and fair-minded treatment of a particular issue. The technology, the economics, and the politics of renewables form a fantastically complicated calculus that needs to be thoroughly understood if we are to have relevant, informed discussions on this subject-the most important challenge in the history of mankind-the migration to clean and sustainable energy sources. ...

The author does a great job capturing interviews from energy experts in a range of industries. It's an easy read and much of it is written in a Q&A type format with the author speaking, followed by the interviewee speaking.

This book is a timely piece, particularly since energy and sustainability are big buzz words of our time. This book will leave you ready to have informed discussions on renewable energy and the tough realities of the subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Honest Review
Renewable Energy: Facts and Fantasies really gets to the heart of the burgeoning renewable energy industry.By going straight to the experts, this book provides an honest review of where the industry is, and more important, where it's heading.A great read for those looking for an intro to the world of renewable energy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Blood, Sweat, and Tears
I recall a book about Southwest Airlines called "Nuts."It should have been called "Guts," because that is what it takes to launch a new technology in the United States today.Craig's book is a collection of powerful interviews with the people who took the chance to follow their dream. The testimony of how these champions overcome their engineering challenges is enough to inspire anyone to step onto the path of entrepreneurship.Craig is in a unique position to hear to stories behind the curtain.

I encourage you to hear the wizards' stories as they apply their skills and tell of how they had to learn new ones to make it happen.Great read, because Craig is a great interviewer.

3-0 out of 5 stars Easy to Read and Easy to Understand
This is a good starter book to get a general outline of what needs to be done.I only rated it three stars because I've already taken classes that offer a lot more detail.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than your average off-grid source book
Lots of good reading with in depth discussion of the authors own hot water and PV systems.I was impressed, the book is somewhat generic and tries to teach simple electrical formulas, boring the crap out of your average reader.The author was a bit too eco-conscious for my taste, but the info was good.Its going on my shelf for future reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great informative book
I was very impressed with both the information and the easy to read and comprehend presentation.It is very easy to see the time and effort put into this book and the author has a very plain way for presenting the information.This book provides detailed advise on making your home a much more efficient and money saving place to live.It is not specifically geared towards Off-Grid Living and has a wealth of valuable information for any home owner wishing to have a more efficient house.It provides a good look at renewable energy options and is a great source of information.

2-0 out of 5 stars limited information
This is yet another renewable energy book that is far to generalized and does not tell you how to really get off the grid.Lot's of information on how to do it to a tiny cabin, but not a regular house (at least in any specific terms).Pretty well written if you want to familiarize yourself with alternate energy or what's involved in going off the grid, but you sure won't know how to actually do it.Cheaper to read a few articles on-line than to buy this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars WHAT A HANDBOOK!!!
This excellent work by the engineer William H. Kemp has made me to decide about installing my own small-wind turbine generator.

In this book you will find the basics about renewable energy, without entering in much technical details, so as a good introductory book it is excellent. Living in a farm with excellent resources all the year round, wind and water, not only I will install a wind generator, but because of this book I have started thinking about inmicro hydro electricity production, chapter 8; chapters 9 to 11, are dedicated with some extend to batteries, converters DC TO AC, and DC regulation or controllers.

Evidently if you want to know a little bit more you have to study more, I would recommend too to the excellent manual by Hugh Piggott, HOW TO BUILD A WIND TURBINE. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Solar Electricity Handbook by Michael Boxwell
The book is comprehensive and easy to understand. It is suitable for beginners who want to learn about solar system installation and wiring concepts and basic design. People who have technical knowledge will find it very easy to understand. The book should not be called a handbook as it lacks technical and material specifications on solar panels and other necessary equipment and also limited in in-depth design calculation. It essentially provides a basic understanding and practical knowledge for people to start with.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book...
There is so much information in this book! I really wish I had purchased earier...before renovating my house. The DYI books I used were helpful, but after reading through Residential Energy, I discovered so many things that I have done wrong. It will take a huge effort to go back and correct the mistakes that I made. This book has me looking at my house in a completely different light. The content of this book is so important, I just wish I had read it a long time ago!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best
The problem is that this is the "only" textbook on the subject.It gets lots of good reviews but they seem to ignore the following:The book has technical errors; not a lot but still.....It is poorly arranged and can be difficult to follow.A good example is the intro.This should be a short synopsis of what to expect ... instead, it tries to teach the whole subject in 13 long pages complete with complex charts.The index is missing many important entries, making it difficult if not impossible to locate information.At times the author seems to get lost in the issue he's trying to convey and not get back to the needed result.There are not nearly enough examples to helpfully convey complex ideas (in some cases there are none, in others the examples serve only to confuse the reader).There are only drawings; in many places a picture would be far superior.All that said, it IS the only textbook available and in spite of all its shortcomings provides a lot of information.
The authors also have 2 field handbooks.Do not waste your money on these. Their physical layouts are excellent (spiral bound, good size, good internal layout) but, and this is important, the contents are practically useless.They are NOT field handbooks in the proper sense (to be used as reference works in the field).Be sure to look them over before purchasing -- you'll find they bring no value.
Instead I'd highly recommend the Taunton Press book by Bruce Harley "Insulate and Weatherize". Altho it's written more for the homeowner, its high level of professionalism makes it a good text for people entering the energy efficiency business.The pictures and layout are a perfect example of "how to write a book". It's a delight and conveys the issue exceptionally well in a fraction of the space that "Residential Energy" tries to.But it won't have the complex physics and math of the Krigger book.
Someone needs to tackle this field with a fine textbook -- and do the world a favor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Book for RESNET test
Took a class to become a Class 1 Florida Home Rater. This book was given to every student in the class. It seems to have quality information that is put in a simple format to read.
Before I took the National RESNET test(passed), I highlighted and tab the book which was very useful come test time. I also bought the Online version and up it to my web site so I could use adobe search at test time.
I found the online book not to be as beneficial because I was faster using my tabs. So I would recommend the Soft book version over the Online Adobe version. I think you learn more by highlighting and tabbing an actual book too.

If you plan to take the National RESNET Test then this book is a must to have.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cost Savings & Comfort
"Residential Energy" is an extremely comprehensive manual to help any homeowner identify and fix all types of energy related problems, including creating a thermal barrier (insulation), when to replace windows or doors, or upgrades to heating and AC units.Covers virtually every area of the house.This book also provides excellent insight or review for the seasoned energy consultant or auditor.Lots of visual graphics to illustrate further.I highly recommend this book.

Design and construction of energy-efficient homes focuses on new construction and 12 houses specially built for zero energy living: it's a pick for any homeowner's library - particularly those featuring new construction options - will want.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Overview
I think "Toward a Zero Energy Home" provides a good overview of what is going on in the technology side of building. I like the fact that a variety of opinions are presented for the reader on different methods working toward the same goal of building a technically smart, energy efficient living space. Anyone interested in this subject will find numerous other books that should be read as well for a more complete understanding of the topic. This volume, in my opinion, holds its own as one of the books that will contribute to that knowledge and is a worthwhile read.

3-0 out of 5 stars A bit too generic for my taste...
While there is nothing inherently wrong with the book (I'm sure it will be exactly what some buyers want) it simply didn't meet my needs.I felt like I was reading a bunch of articles from my Fine Homebuilding magazine (BTW, great magazine).

That is, it covered all sorts of areas, but none of them in enough detail for my liking.In that sense, it is a complete "Guide" to energy self-sufficiency at home.

5-0 out of 5 stars So far... Fantastic!
I'm not done reading this book, but so far it has been a fantastic introduction to the energy markets. Some of the material is repeated over and over, but it only helps reinforce the ideas. There are also some typos, but not to the point of being annoying. If you are looking for a great intro to the energy markets, includingsome of its physical characteristics (e.g., what it is, where it comes from, how its transported, how it's processed, and where it ends up), then this is the book for you. The author has substantial experience in the energy markets and he wrote this book as something he wishes he had read when he got started.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book, but...
watch out for errors! It is a really useful book for somebody just getting into the energy industry. As a beginner, I was able to find a couple errors though, most profound is the Black-Scholes formula - it is copied incorrectly (formulas for d1 and N(x) in particular). Another error can be found on page 237, literally the last sentence. The lower a plant's heat rate the more efficient it is.
Other than that - a great read!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to Energy Trading
Excellent book which describes how physical constraints significantly impact the trading of electricity and natural gas. It explains the physics behind pipelines and power systems in a fairly accessible way however I imagine it would be quite difficult for people who have never done physics. It introduces risk management and options in an easy to read fashion.

The only reason I gave it four stars is due to the incongruous 20 or so pages in the middle of the book in which the author gives us his significantly misinformed view on renewable energy. I hadn't heard this one before, but apparently wind energy's ability to limit oil imports is seriously offsetted by the need for lubricating oil in the wind turbine.

Two minutes on google tells me that a typical wind turbine (1.5MW) consumes about 100L of oil per year. That's about 1MWh of energy. A wind turbine has a typical capacity factor of 30% which means it would generate approximately 4000MWh of energy per year. Thus the energy used for the lubrication oil is 0.025% of the energy generated.

So my advice is to buy the book but skip chapters 4.5-4.8.

Product Description
Opening the Energy Gates of Your Body introduces the key concepts of chi gung in a manner both accessible and understandable to Westerners. With fascinating insights gained from years of training in Asia as a warrior, healer, and priest, Bruce Frantzis demystifies the concept of "chi," the body’s vital energy life force, and shows why this 3000-year-old system of self-healing works. The book provides a set of enjoyable, low impact exercises that readers can learn on their own, including standing chi gung, a core exercise that effectively boosts performance for martial artists, athletes, business people, and others. Body alignments and Taoist breathing, fundamentals that are the foundation of all Taoist energy practices, are also taught, with special alignments that benefit those who must sit for long periods of time. The book also reveals how chi gung can enhance other forms of exercise, from yoga and Pilates to golf and basketball. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginners & advanced
Bruce Frantzis is obviously uniquely trained in Chi Gung, Nei Gung, Tai Chi, Hsing-i and Ba gua. A Western person being individually trained by an Eastern internal arts master is unheard of, let alone being brought into the lineage of the art.

So when Bruce Frantzis publishes a book on Opening the Energy Gates of Your Body you can expect it is done correctly and done with safety in mind.

5-0 out of 5 stars breathing better already
This is a great book, it takes awihle to get to the actual teachings and but is worth the price just for the breathing techniques alone.I am a month into trying this and it does take time but is easy to understand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent ground-work for internal martial arts
I agree with one 5-star reviewer that is the best book of the author (and I also agree with that reviewer that it is disappointing that the author hasn't followed it up with other books along the same direction, but instead mumble-jumbled into many shady "New Age" stuffs and sexual chi gung!).Anyway, his teaching of basic standing meditation (zhan zhuang) has been thorough, and I agree a lot with his focus on alignment, and his partner assisted opening the groin (kua) technique is very useful.

There are two training direction of opening one's chi (or energy) blockages.The classic Taoist way is opening through the meridians during meditation.For best results, it has to be supplemented by moving forms.And the cloud hands is one of the best form, and the author presented in a clear and logical way.His spinal stretch is however only rudimentary.

The author seems to be a man of publicity.And I'm sure he would receive much praise if he could share with us more of his other similar/more in-depth good practices (assuming available) in books, and not keep saying he won't do it for safety reasons (as if legal disclaimer doesn't work).

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you Bruce
I finally have my copy and can't put it down. I have already begun using the exercises, which are bringing relief to my very painful muscles. I have a lower back injury,expensive,fun thieving, injury and I know that I will recover learning from Bruce. I may not have been so focused on taking care of my body, or may not have discovered Bruce's teachings, had I not tripped over that low lying branch in the bush! The injury has been a powerful catalyst for change in my life, helping me to deeply appreciate good health and many beautiful everyday occurances in life. I am inspiredto learn from him and will buy more of his books and dvds, cds... I recommend his work. There are thousands of quigongs out there and every teacher has there own way. This way is a good way to walk. Kind regards, Helen Anderson, Blue Mountains, Australia.

3-0 out of 5 stars A great book, but you really need a teacher..
There are two main things about this book:

A) It's filled with loads of practical information, and great advice both for martial artists and those who practice Qigong.I found the several chapters on standing meditation (Zhan zhuang) especially enlightening.

B) Much of the book is detailing his main methods of clearing Qi blockages, which are the "swings".The "Swings" would be very difficult to do properly without a qualified instructor, and thus I considered those portions of the book (50% or more) useless.

Product Description
Change is hard. Beliefs, thoughts and behaviors often continue as if they have a life of their own, and trying and talking--despite the best intentions--often don't seem to help. Many people spend years in psychotherapy without making a dent in their issues, but now a growing body of doctors, nurses, psychologists, and social workers are discovering that there are remarkable new techniques that, by correcting the flow of electromagnetic energy in the body with simple touching and breathing exercises, actually resolve longstanding psychological issues.

The authors of The Energy of Belief, Sheila Sidney Bender, a psychologist, and Mary T. Sise, a clinical social worker, wanted to help their patients take back control of their lives from unwanted beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and actions. They call their breakthrough method energy-TAB, or "touch and breathe." In this self-help book, Bender and Sise describe their method and lay out a series of simple exercises that allow people in distress to quickly feel major physical and psychological shifts. Their book is packed with real-life examples of clients who were not helped by other forms of therapy, but who used energy-TAB to free themselves of fears, addictions, and runaway emotions. Additionally, the book includes solid science, a step-by-step method for replacing any negative belief with a positive one, simple strategies for performance enhancement, dozens of illustrations, real-life case histories, and easy-to-follow instructions for using this exciting new method. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Remove your energetic blockages now! Your beliefs can change.

Bender and Sise combine the physiology and psychology of healing using simple, helpful techniques. These techniques will help the novice who is just stepping into bio energetics, as well as practitioners of EFT, TFT, acupuncture, massage and light work. Holistic care embraces energy healing and sees it as growing form of therapy. Why wait for western medicine when you can be taught techniques and applications that help.An increased number of professionals are now seeing the value of energy work. Self help is a billion dollar industry. More psychologists are embracing the natural healing powers of the body and the mind. This book gives you concrete ways to heal many issues. If compulsive thoughts consume you, this is a good book to start with. We sometimes don't realize what a "funk" we are in until we look from outside in. this book uses an energy method called "TAB." Touch and breathe--it is that simple. The chapters introduce how thoughts get trapped in our mind field. It acquaints you with how TAB helps. The authors do a great job of giving you step by step instructions with photos as a guide to help rid yourself of negativity and compulsions that are holding you back. I enjoyed that they discussed the impact of core beliefs and how you can have healthier beliefs. It is possible to create the life you want. Energy follows thought!
Creating inner peace and harmony is only the start for allowing the world to heal, one person at a time.
These authors have vision, and compassion to teach and share, and easily communicate ways to help you polish your self awareness. The self awareness test discusses safety, deservedness, blocking beliefs, unknowing beliefs as well as relationships with all of theses.
This book bridges the gap between the ambiguity of energy work and science.It allows you to create positive intentions by releasing those thoughts that hold you back. Intuition is the art of knowing- a concept many people are unsure of. The authors show you how to achieve this.
The book is filled with case stories, techniques, and concepts you will enjoy learning about and using. It will help advance your self help awareness if you are already experienced in this, by creating more focus. Lots of good ideas here. I enjoyed it.
I received a complimentary review copy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Touch and Breathe and Transform
This beautiful book first clearly and gently guides the reader to understand the principles that determine our emotional state.But then it launches the reader into the next step--actually changing the negative beliefs that limit our lives with a powerful tool from the new field of Energy Psychology called the "Touch and Breathe" method.Developed by Dr. John Diepold Jr., this powerful technique combines mindfulness meditation-based practice with touching points on the meridians of energy that flow through the body for "emotional acupressure."Case examples show the profound and long-lasting upward shifts in functioning that come from applying these simple principles.Step-by-step instructions and photos of models demonstrating the procedures guide the reader to be able to access information from their own energy system--a kind of "reading one's own computer."Then the reader is guided through a self-help process to reprogram one's system for emotional health and wellness.This book is a gem!

Invisible Roots: How Healing Past Life Trauma Can Liberate Your Present

5-0 out of 5 stars A Life Changing Health and Wellness Tool
In "The Energy of Belief", Sheila Bender and Mary Sise present a thorough education on what beliefs can do to you, what they can do for you and how they can often work against you. They also teach an easily learned body-energy based method "Touch and Breathe" (TAB). Practicing this method as the easy-to-understand instructions detail, will release negative beliefs and with them, completely change your life. I know, this technique is one I practice and teach myself. I was very impressed by both the research as well as the straight talking explanations and extra tips and hints that made all the difference in artful use of TAB for personal issues. I recommend this book for those who are keen to dump problems, stress and overload. You couldn't have better teachers than these two authors, who are outstanding guides in what for most will be new, though exciting, territory. Buy this book today and start living the life you've always dreamed. When you have control of your beliefs, anything is possible!

4-0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent book that delivers on the promise in its title
Sheila Sidney Bender & Mary T. Sise, The Energy of Belief: Psychology's Power Tools to Focus Intention and Release Blocking Beliefs, Fulton, CA: Energy Psychology Press 2007.

This is an excellent book that delivers on the promise in its title, presenting clearly and convincingly the tools and methods that can identify and transform beliefs that block one's progress and satisfaction in life. Sheila Bender and Mary Sise have a very readable style that engages the reader's interest as it explains biological energy fields, blocking beliefs and how to deal with them.

Helpful nuggets that stand out include:

·Energy field perturbations (well known in the numerous therapy traditions as signs of problems), as well as elaters and harmonizers (positive aspects of energy fields);

·Energy field reversals (again, well known in the Energy Psychology) and energetic belief reversals that can block progress;

·Self-testing for energetic belief blocks.

The scripts and diagrams for using the Touch and Breathe method, supplemented with richly illustrated case examples provide a clear understanding of how to apply these methods. This book is warmly recommended to those who are seeking methods for self-healing.


5-0 out of 5 stars Vital information for self healing
This is the book I have been waiting for - a well written, comprehensive, yet simple, guide to a profound energy psychology technique - Touch And Breathe (TAB). It is the first book I now recommend to those patients who understand how vital it is to take true ownership of their healing. In the early chapters, Sheila Sidney Bender and Mary Sise impart to the reader their deep knowledge of the essential components of TAB:"the meridian gateway,mindfulness,touch, breath,intention and intuition." From then on, they give clear and practical advice on how best to apply this profound healing approach to a wide variety of common debilitating conditions whose roots so often lie within conditioned, false negative beliefs.
Reading this book, and applying its heart-felt advice to our lives, is a truly rewarding experience. I am honored that it has been published as a companion to my own book The Human Antenna: Reading the Language of the Universe in the Songs of Our Cells ... Read more
