[prMac.com] Calgary, Canada - Carmanah Information Products Inc. announces the release of Ideas for Better Living (TM), its first entry into the iPhone Book App category. The book is a compendium of 60 ideas for improving one's life backed up by the knowledge of self-help experts.
Ideas for Better Living is specifically designed to make efficient use of one's limited browsing time: Each idea is expressed in a few short paragraphs, not pages. Should the reader wish to explore an idea in more depth, Sources and Further Reading accompany the majority of articles. In total, there are 39 references to go along with the 60 articles.
Examples of referenced experts include: Stephen R. Covey, Dr. Phil C. McGraw, Norman Doidge M.D. and Viktor E. Frankl to name just a few. The book can be read in the order in which ideas are listed or can be browsed by category. Categories group the ideas into themes. The categories are:
* Your Behavior
* Your Mind
* Health and Wellness
* Work and Play
* Chart Your Course
* Beyond Yourself
"We believe this book to be unique in the app store and of great value to anyone looking to improve their relationships, themselves and their lives in general", says Carmanah's President, Paul Kaufmann. "Hundreds of hours went into research, writing and editing this small book in an effort to make something truly useful"
A playful feature of the book app is the reminder button. Pressing the button causes a short reminder of an idea to be presented. Tap the reminder and the reader is taken to the full article.
