Dave Romanelli redefines the standards of a self-help book with Yeah Daveï¿½s Guide to Livinï¿½ the Moment: Getting to Ecstasy Through Wine, Chocolate, and Your iPod Playlist. The title guarantees that this isnï¿½t your average 10-step solution to happiness and enlightenment. A Los Angeles-based yoga instructor, Romanelli gets up close and personal as he discloses hilarious and irreverent life experiences. To reach bliss in life, readers are encouraged ï¿½to protect those sacred moments when life happens and memories are formed.ï¿½
The authorï¿½s honesty and personal integrity are both relatable and endearing.ï¿½ This quick and easy-to-read book is sure to entertain and teach. Chapters describe his oddball encounters with free-spirited yogis, his acquisition of a white male poodle named Schmutzie, and his experimentation with a new-form of aerobics called ï¿½yog-aeroba-late-tate.ï¿½ Romanelli also unveils the symbolism of hugs and provides a simple guide to being a wine connoisseur. Despite the varied and random story topics, the overarching message speaks loud and clear, ï¿½Every day of your life, enjoy a beautiful moment, a delicious moment, and a funny moment.ï¿½
