Distressed? Anguished? Heal Your BMind"Distressed? Anguished? Heal Your BMind"
by Jacob Gonik 

For nearly 30 years, Jacob Gonik has successfully treated anxiety, stress, fears, traumatic obesity, depression, and other mental disorders in an average of 10 sessions thanks to his "Heal Your BMind" Concept. It is based on a new approach: Your mind has just two parts: an Intellectual part (IMind) and a Behavioral part (BMind).

Psychological problems are not embedded in your personality; they all reside in your BMind in the form of programs. The BMind works like a computer or smartphone app. When you enter ZETA, a BMind relaxing state, all harmful programs can be identified and healed! Self-ZETA is a mentalization process that anyone can use to modify habits and control stress, anxiety, insomnia, fears, and more. Purchase at

You're Kidding, Right?"You're Kidding, Right?"
by Brad Goldfarb 

This book is based on 30 actual questions that retired financial advisor Brad Goldfarb received from clients where the only possible response was, "You're kidding, right?" The common thread behind these questions: they seemed to come from clients' emotions and not necessarily rational thinking. Goldbarb knew he could simplify complicated analytical techniques so every investor could easily understand them, avoid mistakes and apply them to their own strategy.

This book was not written to offer specific advice to investors. It was not written with the idea of do-it-yourself. It was written to educate and enlighten investors to allow them to work more collaboratively with their financial advisors, especially during downturns and turmoil in the financial markets.
