Smashwords book reviews by Mary C. Blowers

  • Missing Links on March 25, 2015

    I am very impressed with Missing Links. I love self-help books and find that they can be a useful supplement to talk therapy, or used alone. Missing Links by Daniel Petra explains what we know instinctively that by trying too hard to change ourselves we can become exhausted and give up. Therefore, “baby steps” can be an effective method of change in the process of giving up bad habits or acquiring new ones. Baby steps require less effort and can seem to promote a seamless transition to a better life. Many aspects are covered including our creativity, setting priorities, deepening our self-awareness, getting over past hurts, and much more. I think you will love Missing Links if you have ever wondered if you could be happier.

Make sure to read all of his publishing and marketing advice. Check out my books on Smashwords at They are doing better and better--I hope to break 5 figures ($10,000) this year.
