In this section you will find books that have made me think as well as the list of books from my book, Doing It with Love!  More will be added over time.  Please let us know of any good books that you have come across as well.

Recent Books

Einstein:  His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson - this book has a good mix of the personal and the science.  Albert's sparkling eyes on the cover caught my attention.  I loved the way Einstein explained his theory of how the universe is finite but has no edges to it.

Aura-Soma:  Self-Discovery through Colour by Vicky Wall - an interesting book which describes how Vicky Wall came to discover Aura-Soma, her journey with these amazing bottles and how she introduced them into the world.

The Teachings of Don Juan:  A Yaqui Way of Knowledge by Don Castaneda - this book describes his experience with an Indian Shaman and is quite scholarly as it forms part of his anthropological studies.  There is one point where I burst out laughing and could not stop laughing every time I thought about his experience

The Road He Travelled by Arthur Jones - I do not particularly like Jones' style of writing and he seems to not particularly like his subject but there is no doubt that M Scott Peck was a fascinating man.  See my blog on Do you practise what you preach?

eat pray love by Elizabeth Gilbert - this wonderful woman shares so much of her journey it makes me catch my breath.  See my blog on eat pray love for more on this book.  It would be great to hear what you thought about it.

Books from Doing It with Love!

The following list of books has been taken from Doing It with Love! by Mary Marko. 

I am always on the look out for interesting books, so I thought it might be useful to provide a list of books that have made me think over the years.  The main criterion I have used is that the book has been thought provoking, not necessarily enjoyable or beautifully written.

The Celestine Prophesy by James Redfield - it is so simple but profound as well.  I very rarely re-read books but over the years I have read this book about eight or so times and always got something out of it.  I have not read it for a few years so I might have to give it another go soon.  I have read other books by this author but they did not have the same effect.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy - Tolstoy writes so beautifully, you are instantly transported and his philosophy of life is very interesting.

The Idiot, Crime and Punishment, Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevksy - I really enjoyed The Idiot.  Brothers Karamazov and Crime and Punishment were interesting and provided lots of food for thought but were not as enjoyable.

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle - a great reminder to live in the now and be present.

Essential Energy Balancing by Diane Stein - the first of three books that I have found amazing - this book has helped me realise that I can do it myself.

Soul Psychology by Joshua David Stone - I have read a few of his books and they are very interesting.  His focus in Soul Psychology is on integrating all aspects of yourself and transcending your negative ego.

Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela - this book is very inspiring.

Anastasia by Vladimir Megre - the first of eight books that are really fascinating.  The main concept is about establishing a Kin's Domain.  I am really excited about starting plans for my own Kin's Domain.

Zen and the Art of Motorcyle Maintenance by Robert M Pirsig - the whole issue of quality is one that really intrigues me.

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell - this book really disturbed me for a long time.  I remember staying up late one night to finish it and being absolutely devastated - what is life without hope.

Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter, The Prime of LIfe by Simone de Beauvoir - a very interesting woman.

The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand - she has an interesting philosophy.  I read these books in my early 20s - they were from a friend's mother.

Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra - a great book about Ayurveda and living in tune with your body type.

Cave in the Snow by Vicki Mackenzie - about an English woman who spent 12 years meditating in a cave.

The Road Less Travelled by M Scott Peck - a fascinating book that was given to me as a gift many years ago.  I will have to re-read it again soon.

Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder - a mystery story that is also a history of philosophy.
