TAKE A DEEP BREATH! 9 Dec. 2000
By A Customer – Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback

WOW! What can I say about Andy Evans’s DYNAMIC little breathing book? It was OUTSTANDING, THOUGHT-PROVOKING, ENGAGING, INSIGHTFUL, BREATH-INDUCING and HILARIOULY FUNNY. Yet, none of these adequately describes the experience of TAKE A DEEP BREATH. I have read many self-help books but none captures the readers attention as effectively, yet as simplistically as did TAKE A DEEP BREATH. Evans keeps his promise of “instantenous” stress relief. He uses an interesting approach to stress relief–using “breathing as the vehicle and laughter as the fuel.” TAKE A DEEP BREATH is a quick-read and is filled with lots of lively quips, tips, quotes and annedotes that’ll keep the reader engaged from cover to cover. TAKE A DEEP BREATH is the kind of book you buy for yourself, then buy several copies as gifts. TAKE A DEEP BREATH is a great book for all ages. After reading it, you’ll find folks coming back to tell you a joke or sharing a laugh with you about one of their own stressful experiences. My 12-year-old even found this book to be a fun read–and we haven’t shared a lot of books lately. He gets a kick out of telling me to “take a deep breath” whenever I’m about to go off about something. I think that Andy Evans really hits the nail right on head with this one. He is truly the “Comedy Counselor.”
