Books for women and women's books

PARAVIEW PRESS  and the PARAVIEW LITERARY AGENCY aim to produce books for and about women of all ages and interests.

Our first title is by Sheila Grant, a former fashion director for TV shows on CBS and NBC, who then started her own Image consulting firm, taking individual clients, and conducting seminars and workshops for women.

How to Get a New Look and a New Life

Sheila Grant is convinced that Any Woman Can change her life! In this inspiring and affirmative book, she reveals how you don’t have to be rich, thin, or young to get a new image and a new life. All you need is the will to change, and this book tells you exactly how to do it. Grant should know, as she also became a Ford model at the age of forty-three, after her own re-imaging. Since then has successfully re-imaged over five hundred women.

Our second Paraview Press for women is by Laurie Nadel, who has worked for such major news organizations as Newsweek, United Press International, Reuters Television, ABC News, CBS News, and The New York Times.

Dancing With The Wind by Laurie Nadel

Dancing With The Wind
A True Story of Zen in the Art of Windsurfing

Order Now

In the 1980s Laurie Nadel began keeping a journal as she learned how to windsurf, using Zen as a way of finding balance within herself. When she came down with an illness with no medical cure, what she had learned from Zen and windsurfing took her far beyond what she ever thought she could accomplish-physically, mentally and spiritually. Dan Rather of CBS News said of the book: "Invigorates and inspires. Excellent."

Our third Paraview Press title, this one by Jim Garrison, director of the State of the World Forum, shows how the suppression of the archetypal feminine throughout history has brought us to the brink of world catastrophe.

Civilization and the Transformation of Power by Jim Garrison

Civilization and the Transformation of Power  
This visionary new book takes readers on a stimulating journey through history, and examines the spiritual, cultural, and evolutionary changes that brought humanity to its current predicament--namely its critical imbalance with Mother Earth.

The Paraview Literary Agency has also handled several books for and about women and women's health issues.

The Paraview Literary Agency’s best selling women’s book was written by  Dr. John Lee and Virginia Hopkins.

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You ABout Menupause by Dr John Lee and Virginia Hopkins

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause: 
The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone

Order Now

This is the book that started a revolution. "Menopause as a disease has been largely fabricated by physicians and the pharmaceutical industry," says Dr. Lee. Estrogen is not the magic bullet for protection against heart disease and osteoporosis, nor does it retard aging. "Advertising and research dollars are spent trying to convince women that estrogen will cure everything from heart disease to Alzheimer's," writes Dr. Lee, "but there is scant evidence for any of these claims and reams of evidence that synthetic estrogens are highly toxic and carcinogenic." Natural progesterone, instead, puts postmenopausal women's hormones in balance. 

Paraview Literary Agency clients Dr. Frank Vasey and Josh Feldstein produced the definitive book on a controversial subject at just the right time.
