#3 The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson

The Warmth of Other Suns is a lifetime spanning tale of three unique stories of black Americans who took part in one of the largest “unrecognized migrations” of human history.

Wilkerson’s historical non-fiction is insightful, vivid, and vital in our understandings of how the country has changed over the last hundred years.

#5 Subconscious Power by Kimberly Friedmutter

Our life is in the eye of the believer. Our perception of fear, love, career and relationships shapes our ability to process what is around us, as it relates to ourselves and who we are. Emotions are housed in the subconscious. The ability to harness and understand how we feel is our liberation, residing in the subconscious.

Subconscious Power not only teaches readers about their own capacity for excellence but shows readers easy-to-do exercises (each 3 minutes or less)to alleviate stress, anxiety, sleeplessness, phobias, addictions and more no matter what age you are. These techniques have been used by Hollywood’s top stars, titans of industry and readers worldwide to overcome anxiety before it ever begins. 100% natural, organic and sustainable.

Experience why hypnotic trance has become the new meditation for those looking to enhance their performance and to excel, using their subconscious mind or just to understand their own life and choices of those they love. See what celebrities like Mike Tyson, Jennifer Hudson and Martha Stewart have to say regarding Subconscious Power.
