Felicidad al Alcance de Todos

Pedro Carranza, Author Llewellyn Espanol $12.95 (295p) ISBN 978-1-56718-114-2
Through personal and motivational language, this book introduces the reader to the themes of self-confidence, overcoming fear, goal setting, visualization, and affirmation. A native of Peru who has done graduate studies in administration and leadership in institutions in France and the United States, Carranza weaves passages from the Bible and Buddhist philosophy together with the ideas of many diverse thinkers, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mother Theresa, and Dale Carnegie. Though not a workbook, this volume provides several exercises to encourage the reader to explore and put into writing self-evaluation, values, goals, and plans for happiness. With ""chicken soup""- style stories of success in each chapter, the book tends toward redundancy, but it will be of interest to readers in search of self-help and motivation. Recommended for bookstores and medium to large public libraries. Catherine Cebrowski, Monterrey, Mexico
