The Winner’s Brain
Contrary to popular belief, winning in life has little to do with IQ, your circumstances, your financials resources, or even luck. But it has everything to do with creating a failure-resistant brain. Every time you think a thought, feel an emotion, or execute a behavior, your neurocircuitry changes, and the good news is you can take charge of this process. Yes, the key to success really is all in your head. To order:

Fitness for Dummies
The original Fitness for Dummies, published in 1996, was a real breakthrough: a book that took a reader through all the fitness basics without being offputtingly complicated or insultingly simplistic. This second edition only improves on that tough balancing act. The authors are two of the most experienced fitness writers in the business–Suzanne Schlosberg is a longtime contributor to Shape and Liz Neporent is a veteran personal trainer, corporate fitness consultant, and contributor to Shape and The New York Times. In addition to being experienced at explaining exercise, they’re both exercise junkies, and their firsthand knowledge and love of the topic is evident throughout. To order:

Weight Training for Dummies
Owning Weight Training for Dummies is like having two knowledgeable and entertaining personal trainers into your home. The authors, Liz Neporent and Suzanne Schlosberg, authors of the popular Fitness for Dummies, are both fitness professionals who walk (lift, run, bicycle) their talk. They explain the basics of weight training simply, then take you through every step to setting up your own program and doing it properly. Whether you have free weights (dumbbells and barbells), a home machine, or access to a gym with many machines, you’ll get an introduction to safe and effective weight training, plus descriptions, technique, and illustrations of dozens of exercises designed to target all major muscle groups. And just in case this is the only fitness book you buy, the authors include some information on cardio exercise, stretching, and other exercise options. Best of all, the book is motivating, easy to understand, and fun to read. To order:

The Fat Free Truth
Is it true? That’s the question that probably comes to mind every time you read or hear a claim about a new diet plan, metabolism-boosting pill, exercise device or workout regimen. You wonder: Has the Atkins diet really been vindicated by scientific research? Will Pilates give you “long, lean muscles – no bulk,” like some of the Web sites promise? If you pack on three pounds of muscle, will you actually burn an extra 10,000 calories a month? To order:
