When you read books that tell you to change your life, or that claim to have a major impact on your life – as in, tell you how to heal or live – please please please check the accreditation of the author.

Too many times the author is someone who has no business telling you how to live your life – they have no professional credentials. Which sometimes is okay, because maybe they have age old wisdom to give from living a truly spectacular life: google them to find out. More than that, read it with a critical eye. Otherwise, take that book and use it for what it should be used: kindling.
