With 10 Minutes/10 Years, one of the world's most famous cosmetic dermatologists offers a breakthrough skin-care program that will take you only ten minutes a day -- and will reverse your skin's aging process by ten years. There is a skin-care revolution taking place; the days of washing your face with soap and water and slapping on some cream are long gone. But this means that skin care isn't simple anymore. As new products appear, seemingly overnight, it becomes harder to know what's right for your skin. With warmth and humor, Dr. Brandt cuts through the information overload to provide concrete information and advice for women of all ages and of every skin type. He helps you determine who to go to and who not to go to as well as what to ask. 10 Minutes/10 Years is a uniquely formatted, problem/solution-driven guidebook that reveals many unknown threats to the skin which age it before its time, such as sugar and diet (Chapter 3).

His system has already helped thousands of people look younger, and now readers will have their own one-way ticket back to a youthful appearance.

Is your life path lit by your inner candle flame, or are you stumbling along in the dark? In Dr. Wayne Dyer's new book, he reminds us of what so many people easily forget in the day-to-day grind of life -- that material success isn't what we're ultimately trying to achieve, and therefore it shouldn't be our driving force. Within each of us lies success and inner peace, which can be found once we understand that a deeper, richer life experience is characterized by a burning desire, or as Dr. Dyer describes it, an "inner candle flame." In this thought-provoking book, Dr. Dyer offers simple ways to change your life -- and your outlook on life. The ten principles presented here apply to people who are just beginning their journey of discovery, as well as those who have already embarked on life's winding path. Dr. Dyer urges us to listen with an open heart, and to apply the secrets that resonate with them and discard the rest. By doing so, we'll learn to feel the peace of God that truly defines success.
