Get RIPPED! 1000 #3 by Jari LoveThis DVD is one of the latest offerings from Canadian fitness instructor Jari Love, who first entered the video fitness scene about twelve years ago with her original Get Ripped! DVD.  Since that time, Love has released a number of offerings in the Ripped series, including two prior "1000" incarnations.         For this third volume of the 1000 videos, Love has designed a workout with both cardio and weights segments.  The cardio and weights can be alternated in a 65-minute full workout, or each component can be completed individually for two short

Get RIPPED! and Jacked - The Boomer Workout
DVD
By Jari Love
Review by Beth T. Cholette, Ph.D. on Tue, Oct 30th 2018.
This DVD is one of the latest offerings from Canadian fitness instructor Jari Love, who first entered the video fitness scene about twelve years ago with her original Get Ripped! DVD.  Since that time, Love has released a number of offerings in the Ripped series.  In Get Ripped and Jacked, a strength-only routine, Love changes things up a bit two ways:  1) she has her senior Ripped instructors lead the entire workout, and 2) the weights work consists of slow-paced lifting         In addition to being designed at a slower tempo,

Beyond the Self
Conversations Between Buddhism and Neuroscience
By Matthieu Ricard and Wolf Singer
Review by J. Jeremy Wisnewski on Mon, Sep 3rd 2018.
Beyond the Self by Matthieu Ricard and Wolf SingerBeyond the Self is a series of dialogues between the neuroscientist Wolf Singer and the Buddhist monk and author Matthieu Ricard. Both are extremely well-known in their respective worlds. Wolf Singer ran the Max Plank Institute for Brain Research; Matthieu Ricard is the French translator for the Dalai Lama and has authored numerous well-received books (including The Quantum and the Lotus, with Trinh Thuan, among others). Their conversations take up issues central to cognitive science and the philosophy of mind and action. The dialogues are rich in content, avoiding needless technicality withou

A Journey Into Yin Yoga
By Travis Eliot
Review by Beth Cholette, Ph.D. on Mon, Sep 3rd 2018.
Author and yoga instructor Travis Elliot became known to many through his yoga DVD series, The Ultimate Yogi.  That collection of twelve yoga routines consisted of various themed classes, one of which was a 65-minute yin yoga practice.  In this book, Elliot builds on the popularity of that particular class by offering a comprehensive approach to the practice of yin yoga.  More than just a yoga practice manual, A Journey into Yin Yoga is filled with stories from Elliot's life—starting with the near-fatal car accident that brought him to the practice—as well as feature

Yoga for Athletes
By Ryanne Cunningham
Review by Beth Cholette, Ph.D. on Tue, Aug 7th 2018.
Yoga for Athletes by Ryanne CunninghamAuthor and yoga instructor Ryanne Cunningham lives in the Green Bay area, where she works with team members of the Green Bay Packers as well as athletes in other sports.  In this book, she argues that yoga can serve to enhance the already rigorous training programs of both professional and amateur athletes by brining greater balance to the entire body.  Some of the benefits she postulates include assistance with muscle recovery and injury prevention, plus reducing stress, increasing focus, strengthening underused muscles, building the core, and improving sleep. Chapter 2, "Getting S

Food You Can Forage
Edible Plants to Harvest, Cook and Enjoy
By Tiffany Francis
Review by Christian Perring on Tue, Jul 24th 2018.
Foraging is particularly fashionable in the UK, as those who watch UK cooking competition shows on TV are probably aware. The idea is that one goes out to the forest or countryside and finds ingredients growing naturally that are not available in shops. The plants will be especially fresh and tasty because they will be eaten soon after being collected, and they will make one's meal unique and can draw on traditional recipes that are part of rural traditions.. A familiar example comes from picking wild mushrooms. But mushrooms are a salient example because although they can be delicious, there

Sleep
The Myth of 8 Hours, the Power of Naps, and the New Plan to Recharge Your Body and Mind
By Nick Littlehales
Review by Christian Perring on Tue, Jul 24th 2018.
Sleep by Nick LittlehalesNick Littlehales argues that we sleep in 90 minute cycles, and that we need to go through 4 or 5 of these sleep cycles each day. But we do not need to get them in one continuous period of sleep: we can have a shorter sleep and then get another cycle later in the day with a 90 minute nap, preferably in the early afternoon. These are the distinctive features of his message, and he also endorses many of the other bullet points that are familiar from other sleep experts: sleep is important for mental and physical health, and should not be skimped, we sleep better with a regular bedtime, free of el

The Science of Sleep
What It Is, How It Works, and Why It Matters
By Wallace B. Mendelson
Review by Maura Pilotti, PhD on Tue, Jul 24th 2018.
In The Science of Sleep: What It Is, How It Works, and Why It Matters, Wallace B. Mendelson provides an insightful as well as accessible overview of the phenomenon of sleep. The overview is effectively organized into topical chapters, each answering a set of key questions likely to be asked by a special kind of reader, one that not only is curious about sleep, but also values scientific rigor in the answers he/she receives. The author's narrative begins with conventional matters involving the main features of sleep and its functional and structural components. Then, it moves to more
