by Marsha L. Randolph You don’t read “Past Tense™” by Shawn Kilgarlin and Ron Kilgarlin you keep it by your bed and chew on one section at a time. I don’t know what I was thinking when I read the title, it was not until I read a 3rd chapter that I finally got it. (Light bulb-on!) I have this tendency to grab a book and begin reading without paying much attention to the cover.
The full title “Past Tense™ -365 Daily Tools for Putting Stress Behind You- for Good!” is a semi-accurate description as to what the book is about. What I discovered, why I believe this book needs to be kept at your bedside, is the book is filled with living antidotes. There are 24 Sections which categorize the tools to alleviate the various stressors one might encounter. The following are titles of nine of the 24 sections:
Section 1- Isolating Your Stressors
Section 2 -Stress Handling Tools
Section 3 -Better Health, Less Stress
Section 7 - Family and Stress
Section 9 - When Stress Leads to Addiction
Section 10- Faith Conquers Stress
Section 11- Dealing With Holiday Stress
Section 15 - Overcoming Heartache
Section 23- Dealing With Abuse
Each chapter presents applicable words of understanding along with notable quotations which reinforce the wisdom presented. In addition to the 365 tools to put stress behind you at the end of the book is an excellent resource guide.
Some may think “I don’t need this book, I am not stressed” you are the ones who need this book the most. “Past Tense™” is about living thus it addresses everyday events. I recommend this book and I would definitely purchase this book.
I received a complimentary advance reading copy of “Past Tense™” in exchange for an honest review.
