Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

Jane Birdsell is thrilled to receive a Finalist Award in the Relationship Category of the 2013 National Indie Excellence Book Awards contest. Indie Excellence Awards recognize books demonstrating "an indefinable synergy of elements that make for overall excellence." http://www.indieexcellence.com

Having recognized the need for many people to have more information about expressing feelings to enhance self-awareness and understanding of others, Jane Birdsell was motivated to write Emotional Enlightenment: Managing Feelings for Success. She wanted to help readers become their own expert on emotions. In the book, she dissects emotions to show what they really are, where they come from and how to manage them when they are negative.

Emotional Enlightenment: Managing Feelings for Success provides "deep, fresh psychological insights, which makes the book a perfect teaching tool for a classroom setting," says Jennifer de Poyen (a California-based writer and critic). "Yet, it is written in a direct, accessible style, which makes it useful for anyone who wants to improve his or her relationships."

The book is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in the United States and at Owl’s Nest Books and other quality bookstores in Canada. It is also available on Kindle.
