Library Journal December 1999 Simon, David, M.D. Vital Energy: The 7 Keys To Invigorate Body, Mind, & Soul. Wiley. Jan. 2000. c288p. ISBN 0-471-33226-7. $24.95. HEALTH By filling out the numerous questionnaires contained in this book, readers can discover which of the seven basic mind-body types they are: earth, wind, fire, or some combination of these. However, Simon explains that we all embody the three basic principles to varying degrees, and he suggests that understanding how these forces interact and affect the mind-body connection can lead to increased vitality. Once medical conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disease, or anemia have been ruled out as causes for fatigue, we need to discover our "inner ocean of vital energy." Chapters instruct readers on how to, among other things, Seek Yourself, Clear Your Toxins, and Work with Meaning. Simon, medical director of the Chopra Center for Well Being and author of Return to Wholeness and The Wisdom of Healing, provides practical advice to help us understand that "we are composed of the same stuff that makes the world and [that] enables us to imbibe the energy we need to create balance and vitality in our lives." For large public libraries. --Jodith Janes, Cleveland Clinic Fdn.

The roller-coaster life of the flamboyant creator of General Motors
"A well-written biography."--New York Times
"A well-executed glimpse of one of the giants of the automobile industry."--Publishers Weekly
Long before Ted Turner, Rupert Murdoch, and Bill Gates, there was William C. Durant (1861-1947), the flamboyant businessman who made deals at warp speed to build General Motors and the automotive industry. Now in paperback, The Deal Maker brings Durant, a self-starter obsessed with making it and being seen as making it, to thrilling life. Thriving on the art of the deal, Durant was buying companies at the rate of one every thirty days at the height of his career. By 1910, he had brought together twenty-five automobile firms into what would become the General Motors empire. Then, gambling on a run on GM stock, Durant was forced into a buyout, which unseated him from GM, leaving him without the financial wherewithal to ever succeed again. Featuring some of the most important figures in the history of the automotive industry and American business, including Henry Ford, David Buick, Albert Champion, Louis Chevrolet, Alfred P. Sloan, and Pierre Du Pont, The Deal Maker is a fast-paced, rousing tale of Durant's dizzying success and abject failure.
This book is a treasure trove of information. Vital energy is our most precious personal resource, and David Simon teaches us how to create it and maintain it." —Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love and Enchanted Love The secret to vitality and happiness is within your grasp. Why are so many people overwhelmed by fatigue, lack of enthusiasm, and depression? Why are so many people haunted by the sense that something vitally important is missing from their lives? David Simon explains that these feelings come from a lack of personal connection to what is truly important.

This book shows you how to tap into this reservoir. Vital Energy nourishes the body, mind, and soul with a practical program designed for genuine and lasting benefits. Featuring a balance of compassionate spiritual wisdom, down-to-earth health advice, and remarkably beautiful, insightful writing, Vital Energy delivers a proven healing plan for the majority of us who experience symptoms of fatigue and weariness—as well as a lack of inspiration and enthusiasm. In Vital Energy, youll learn which of the three mind body types you are: earth, fire, or wind—or a combination. With this knowledge, you will understand more about the true nature of your personality and you will be able to help yourself to Dr. Simons personalized prescriptions that lead to self-knowledge, cleansing of toxins, healing nutrition, healthy and loving emotions, daily routines in sync with nature, a life balanced between mindful work and joyful play, and an appreciation for the sacred magic of life.
