What We Are Reading Today: Beaten Down, Worked Up Steven Greenhouse

Beaten Down, Worked Up — from longtime New York Times labor correspondent Steven Greenhouse — is an in-depth look at working men and women in America, the challenges they face, and how they can be re-empowered

Greenhouse writes in depth of the history and current state of American labor and specifically highlights labor unions. 

Greenhouse “probably knows more about what is happening in the American workplace than anybody else in the country, having covered labor as a journalist for two decades,” said Zephyr Teachout in a review for The New York Times. 

Teachout said Greenhouse “achieves a near-impossible task, producing a page-turning book that spans a century of worker strikes, without overcondensing or oversimplifying, and with plausible suggestions for the future.”

The review said Greenhouse “may be a great advocate for unions, but he has no patience for union insiders who have grown used to internal power, who ask for too little and focus too much attention on strategies designed to minimize damage.”

What We Are Reading Today: Free for Life by Christopher Lee Maher

Unresolved physical, spiritual, mental and emotional stress, tension, and structural distortion rob people of their ability to do what they truly love. The majority of the available tools designed to help you manage your complex stressors are a distraction from the underlying road blocks that keep your body from healing itself. There is a much better way to rebalance and restore your health so you can resume doing all the things that bring you joy, peace and happiness.

The intense complex stressors  Christopher Lee Maher experienced as a child and as a Navy SEAL inspired him to embody, study and develop powerful systems that create instantaneous, permanent change at a conscious, unconscious and subconscious level.

He introduces his remarkable wellness program in Free for Life. His True Body Intelligence system is a suite of  subtractive methodologies specifically designed to restore balance to the emotions, body, brain, and nervous system, according to a review published on goodreads.com.

The systems within True Body Intelligence assist in reintegrating every aspect of your being to offer real, permanent solutions for root causes, not bandages for symptoms.
