In an age where questions are answered by a simple internet search, I still prefer the old fashioned book. Christine's "Articles for the Mind" answers questions and provides vital advice all in one place. I appreciated the sections for different life situations. This book will definitely be a life-long resource.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Author Christine Rice brings to the table with her book Articles for the Mind an array of topics that will interest readers covering the physical, emotional, financial and daily living areas. Each of the 58 topics are grouped alphabetically by category and are sure to inform you on a wide variety of areas.
With regard to health, for example Rice discredits the myth that all calories act the same way. If nutrition and healthy living are in your interests learn the best snacks to take on a hiking trip and how to shop wisely to maintain a variety of health foods. Fresh looking skin should not be reserved solely for women and these tips will help you look your best personally and professionally.
Finances, a common concern to many households, and if you struggle with organizing a budget, need help with debt reduction, and/or would like to know the advantages and disadvantages of buying or leasing a car this resource will help. Sad but true, many today are in wrong careers. There is a section that will give you signs to evaluate this for yourself. Because most of us will have to endure at least one if not several interviews in our life, gain insights into helpful questions to consider for better preparedness.
Some of the other interesting topics are as follows:
~supportive ways to enhance a marriage
~symptoms of emotional abuse
~factors to consider for returning or first time adult education
~differences between shyness and introversion
If you are a writer gain strategies in overcoming writers block while also being aware of word usage, sentence structure and effective beginnings and endings.
I recommend this book for its valuable content, easy to read style, and reasonable price. Short, to the point, but highly informative is how I would classify these articles. These topics stem from a wide variety of endeavors that Rice has experience with. In addition to this book and other books she has written Christine Rice has a passion to help authors and writers with editing, proof reading and formatting. She runs a successful publishing service business worth looking into.
