The Assertiveness Guide for Women - by Julie De Azevedo Hanks (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 224Genre: Self ImprovementSub-Genre: Personal GrowthFormat: PaperbackPublisher: New Harbinger PublicationsAge Range: AdultBook theme: SuccessAuthor: Julie De Azevedo HanksLanguage: English About the Book Many women find it difficult to stand up for themselves, but for women who are prone to anxiety and avoidance, it is especially difficult. Grounded in attachment theory, this is an essential guide to help women identify their thoughts and feelings, balance their emotions, communicate their needs, and set healthy boundaries to improve their lives. Book Synopsis Isn't it time you took a stand? Many women struggle with assertiveness, but if you're prone to anxiety and avoidance, it is especially difficult. Grounded in attachment theory, this essential guide will help you identify your thoughts and feelings, balance your emotions, communicate your needs, and set healthy boundaries to improve your life.When you're assertive, you're able to communicate your needs and wishes clearly while respecting yourself and anyone else involved in the interaction. But when you aren't assertive, you may stop yourself from saying anything when your needs aren't being met, or end up lashing out in hostile or hurtful ways. People with different attachment styles struggle with being assertive for different reasons, and even women with a secure attachment style may have difficulty expressing emotion when faced with challenging circumstances.Using strategies based in mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), The Assertiveness Guide for Women can help you understand the attachment styles that keep you from asserting yourself. You'll learn about the three communication stances--from the passive Doormat to the aggressive (or passive-aggressive) Sword to the assertive Lantern--and find practical examples that show you how to apply your new communication and emotional awareness skills in your own life. Rather than being caught in a cycle of rumination and regret when you're unable to express yourself or even acknowledge your own needs, you'll be ready to assert yourself and get what you want.Whether you're anxious and overwhelmed by the intensity of your emotions, avoidant and struggle to identify your emotions, or otherwise have difficulty expressing yourself, this book will help you become more aware of your own thoughts and feelings, and empower you to ask for what you need, set boundaries, and speak your truth for a more fulfilling life. Review Quotes "The Assertiveness Guide for Women offers the skills you need to change and empower your life--including strengthening valuable relationships!

The Assertiveness Guide for Women is a powerful book packed with practical, thoughtful suggestions and poignant real-life examples to help us speak up, effectively express ourselves, and set strong boundaries. You'll also gain insights into your own thoughts, feelings, and relationships, and into your own challenges with being assertive. This book empowers you, even when you feel powerless and undeserving. I truly wish it was required reading for all women and girls. It's that important." --Margarita Tartakovsky, MS, writer and associate editor at www.psychcentral.com "This informative, accessible guide goes beyond healthy communication techniques and delves into the psychology that drives our patterns of relating to others. With thorough information, relatable examples, and awareness exercises that personalize the experience, Julie de Azevedo Hanks provides readers with a highly applicable resource that can transform their relationships with others and with themselves.

The Exquisite Risk - by Mark Nepo (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 290Genre: Self ImprovementSub-Genre: Motivational & InspirationalFormat: PaperbackPublisher: HarmonyAge Range: AdultAuthor: Mark NepoLanguage: English About the Book From an award-winning poet and spiritual writer comes a beautifully written guide to the life that is meant to be lived--a life of risk, which opens us up to love. Book Synopsis A fresh perspective on the art of being alive and essential insight into how we can minimize what stands between us and an authentic experience of life, in the spirit of works by Deepak Chopra and Ram Dass "Once again, Mark Nepo draws us to the heart of what matters. He illuminates love with the light of his own understanding."--Marianne Williamson In these fast-paced times, the exquisite risk facing each of us every day is to slow down so that we may experience life rather than simply manage it. In The Exquisite Risk, poet and teacher Mark Nepo encourages readers to become quiet enough and open enough to listen to what truly matters--our own hearts, our loved ones, the wonders of nature--in order to live a life with nothing held back. In rich, lyrical prose, Nepo shares his own spiritual path, including a battle with illness that helped him understand how daring to embrace all that life has to offer can bring us to a deeper appreciation of its meaning and beauty. Review Quotes "Once again, Mark Nepo draws us to the heart of what matters. He illuminates love with the light of his own understanding." --Marianne Williamson "The Exquisite Risk is a celebration of an honest life, lived on purpose. Mark Nepo's words, like water on a stone, gently but firmly score a path for us to follow, a path that leads us into the place of remembering what a life is for; an invitation to tell the truth, remain close to the earth, and love well. What, more than this, can we ever ask of a book as our companion?" --Wayne Muller, author of Learning to Pray, Sabbath, and How, Then, Shall We Live? "Every page of The Exquisite Risk is alive with Mark's compassion, rich with his soulfulness. If you are looking for one of those rare books that offer companionship on the journey, you will find none better than this." --Parker J. Palmer, author of A Hidden Wholeness, The Courage to Teach, and Let Your Life Speak "An inspiration . . . The Exquisite Risk affirms that there are essentially two responses to life--a risky opening up to love and a controlling move into success and isolation. The direct reporting of Mark Nepo's epiphanies moves and flows in a wonderful sequencing of revelations that deepen and fill out as we read. . . . An exquisite gift."--Robert Inchausti, author of The Ignorant Perfection of Ordinary People About the Author Mark Nepo, a member of Oprah's SuperSoul 100, is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry and spirituality for forty years.

Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers - 3rd Edition by Robert M Sapolsky (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 539Genre: Self ImprovementSub-Genre: SelfFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Holt McDougalAge Range: AdultBook theme: Stress Management, ManagementAuthor: Robert M SapolskyLanguage: English About the Book Renowned primatologist Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, featuring new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, new insights into anxiety and personality disorder, and the impact of spirituality on managing stress. Book Synopsis Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress. As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet. Review Quotes Robert M. Sapolsky is one of the best science writers of our time.--Oliver Sacks For the first edition of Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers: Sapolsky succeeds in interpreting technical material in a way that leaves readers with an understanding of how the same physiological responses, so well suited for dealing with short-term physical emergencies, can turn into potential disasters when chronically provoked for psychological or other reasons....The author has a way with words and images....you'll find plenty to intrigue you. --The Washington PostRobert Sapolsky wittily dissects the anatomy of human stress-response. --The Wall Street Journal About the Author Robert M. Sapolsky is a professor of biology and neurology at Stanford University and a research associate with the Institute of Primate Research, National Museum of Kenya. He is the author of A Primate's Memoir and The Trouble with Testosterone, which was a Los Angeles Times Book Award finalist. A regular contributor to Discover and The Sciences, and a recipient of a MacArthur Foundation genius grant, he lives in San Francisco.
The Book of Freedom - (Mastery Trilogy/Paul Selig) by Paul Selig (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 368Genre: Body + Mind + SpiritSub-Genre: Channeling & MediumshipSeries Title: Mastery Trilogy/Paul SeligFormat: PaperbackPublisher: TarcherperigeeAge Range: AdultAuthor: Paul SeligLanguage: English Book Synopsis The third work in channeler Paul Selig's acclaimed Mastery Trilogy guides readers to the knowledge of their true selves. The crown jewel of the mastery trilogy--the most important spiritual work of our time.--Aubrey Marcus, New York Times bestselling author of Own the Day, Own Your Life, founder and CEO of Onnit The channeled literature of Paul Selig--who receives clairaudient dictation from unseen intellects called the Guides--has quickly become the most important and celebrated expression of channeling since A Course In Miracles rose to prominence in the 1970s. Selig's previous trilogy of channeled wisdom--I Am the Word, The Book of Love and Creation, and The Book of Knowing and Worth--won a large following around the world for its depth, intimacy, and psychological insight. The first two books of his new Mastery Trilogy, The Book of Mastery and The Book of Truth, likewise attained popularity and praise. Now, Selig continues the Teachings of Mastery with the widely anticipated third volume in the series: The Book of Freedom, which shows readers how to find full expression as the Divine Self through surrender and acquiescence to the true nature of their being. Review Quotes "The words spoken through Paul Selig in the Book of Freedom ring as true as any that have ever been written. Like a steady drumbeat drawing us toward our soul's highest potential, this book is the crown jewel of the mastery trilogy--the most important spiritual work of our time. The message continues to unfold in a way that is deeply impactful for both a first time reader, or a long time follower of Paul's work. The Book of Freedom has profoundly influenced my life and I am honored to help shout from the rooftops, 'we are free, we are free, we are free!'"--Aubrey Marcus, founder and CEO of Onnit, New York Times bestselling author of Own the Day, Own Your Life "If you have not yet encountered the channeled teachings of Paul Selig, you are in for a treat. Rarely does one encounter spiritual teachings of such directness, lucidity, and relevance. In a world where there are many claims of higher consciousness and psychic insight, Paul is a profound and authentic voice. The teachings of the Guides ring true again and again. If you already know something of these teachings, you will find here a new wealth of insight into the stages of self-understanding that make it possible to live more fully from our awake and compassionate core. The Book of Freedom is a powerful manual on how to 'walk the talk' of authentic spiritual teaching--integrating our spiritual selves with our lived human lives. This a very welcome addition to the literature of work on consciousness."--Russ Hudson, co-author of The Wisdom of the Enneagram The Book of Freedom calls us all into the same kingdom of heaven Jesus announced two thousand years ago--experienced through a radical shift in perception beyond the known world of judgment and prescription into the resonance of divinity in all. Finding freedom from the prisons that hold us captive to fear and unworthiness is like being re-born into a whole new world at the cost of everything we think about ourselves and the nature of reality. This awakening is the only journey that ultimately matters, and the Book of Freedom is a trumpet that guides us home. May we all have ears to hear the song of freedom sung to us in this beautiful offering of love.--Ted Dekker, New York Times bestselling author of Rise of the Mystics Praise for the Mastery Trilogy Paul's messages arrive from a consortium of unseen 'Guides' whose voices are deeply ethical, penetratingly insightful regarding the foibles of human nature, and unsparingly blunt about the possibilities and pitfalls facing us in the present era. As an intellect, Paul, too, possesses these qualities and serves as a fine instrument--a kind of Stradivarius of the soul--through which the Guides can play their notes.--Mitch Horowitz, PEN Award-winning author of Occult America, One Simple Idea and The Miracle Club About the Author Born in New York City, Paul Selig attended New York University and received his master's degree from Yale. A spiritual experience in 1987 left him clairvoyant. Selig is considered one of the foremost contributors to the field of channeled literature working today. He offers channeled workshops internationally and teaches regularly at the Esalen Institute. Also a noted educator, he served on the faculty of NYU for over 25 years. He is the former director of the MFA in Creative Writing Program at Goddard College and now serves on the college's Board of Trustees. He lives in New York City where he maintains a private practice as an intuitive. Information on public workshops, online seminars and private readings can be found at www.paulselig.com.

From old family recipes and subway rides to jury duty and hospital stays, in Cozy Gillies shows readers that true ease stems not with throw pillows and a candle, but from opportunities to feel that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, and learn to make ourselves at home no matter where we are.Simple choices can make a hectic life or an uncomfortable situation just a little more comfortable--you just have to know what to do. Just as Marie Kondo offered a philosophy for how to tidy, Gillies offers a new way of occupying the spaces we live in. Starting with yourself, then broadening to your home, your community, and the world at large, Cozy will show you how to bring the truth of who you are into any situation, easy or challenging.

The Conquest of Happiness - by Bertrand Russell (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 223Genre: Body + Mind + SpiritSub-Genre: HealingFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Liveright Publishing CorporationAge Range: AdultBook theme: GeneralAuthor: Bertrand RussellLanguage: English About the Book "Should be read by every parent, teacher, minister, and Congressman in the land."--The Atlantic Book Synopsis In The Conquest of Happiness, first published by Liveright in 1930, iconoclastic philosopher Bertrand Russell attempted to diagnose the myriad causes of unhappiness in modern life and chart a path out of the seemingly inescapable malaise so prevalent even in safe and prosperous Western societies. More than eighty years later, Russell's wisdom remains as true as it was on its initial release. Eschewing guilt-based morality, Russell lays out a rationalist prescription for living a happy life, including the importance of cultivating interests outside oneself and the dangers of passive pleasure. In this new edition, best-selling philosopher Daniel C. Dennett reintroduces Russell to a new generation, stating that Conquest is both "a fascinating time capsule" and "a prototype of the flood of self-help books that have more recently been published, few of them as well worth reading today as Russell's little book." Review Quotes 'He writes what he calls common sense, but is in fact uncommon wisdom.' - The Observer

Brain Training with the Buddha - by Eric Harrison (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 336Genre: Body + Mind + SpiritSub-Genre: Mindfulness & MeditationFormat: PaperbackPublisher: ExperimentAge Range: AdultAuthor: Eric HarrisonLanguage: English About the Book Sparklingly clear instructions on how to train the mind using the Buddha's original teachings on mindfulness and meditation--no familiarity with (or even interest in) Buddhism required Book Synopsis The essential guide to training your brain for mindfulness--modern, science-based, and with no Buddhism required. Publisher's note: Brain Training with the Buddha was previously published in hardcover as The Foundations of Mindfulness. Lifelong meditation teacher Eric Harrison intimately understands the benefits of mindfulness, from improved focus and better judgment to relaxation and inner peace. He's helped tens of thousands of students to achieve these goals by rooting his practice in the Buddha's original text on how to meditate and live mindfully: the Satipatthana Sutta. Brain Training with the Buddha offers a secular perspective on this ancient wisdom that requires no familiarity with Buddhism itself--only openness to the Buddha's original teachings. Harrison's translation of this sutta (the first in modern English) comes with guidance for anyone looking to train their mind by applying its thirteen steps to mindful living today. Review Quotes "Brings clear thinking, practical wisdom, and welcome rigor to the widely popular concept of mindfulness."--Publishers Weekly "A deeply engaging book which both Buddhist meditators and secular mindfulness practitioners around the globe will find useful. To help clarify mindfulness, Eric Harrison explores the relationships, overlaps, and divergences between western Buddhist meditation and secular mindfulness. Whatever your particular views and preferences on the subject, [Brain Training with the Buddha] will help you locate them. I also enjoyed Eric's translation of the Satipatthana Sutta for its accessibility."--Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness "The Satipatthana Sutta is one of the Buddha's foundational teachings on mindfulness. This commentary by a staunchly non-Buddhist mindfulness teacher makes for a stimulating and, at times, provocative read."--David Michie, author of The Dalai Lama's Cat series and Mindfulness is Better Than Chocolate

Number of Pages: 308Genre: Health + WellnessSub-Genre: DiseasesFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Avery Publishing GroupAge Range: AdultBook theme: HeartAuthor: Caldwell B EsselstynLanguage: English About the Book Drawing on the groundbreaking results of his 20-year nutritional study, the author maintains that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease but can also reverse its effects. Book Synopsis The New York Times bestselling guide to the lifesaving diet that can both prevent and help reverse the effects of heart disease Based on the groundbreaking results of his twenty-year nutritional study, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn illustrates that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent the progression of heart disease but can also reverse its effects. Dr. Esselstyn is an internationally known surgeon, researcher and former clinician at the Cleveland Clinic and a featured expert in the acclaimed documentary Forks Over Knives. Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease has helped thousands across the country, and is the book behind Bill Clinton's life-changing vegan diet.The proof lies in the incredible outcomes for patients who have followed Dr. Esselstyn's program, including a number of patients in his original study who had been told by their cardiologists that they had less than a year to live. Within months of starting the program, all Dr. Esselstyn's patients began to improve dramatically, and twenty years later, they remain free of symptoms.Complete with more than 150 delicious recipes perfect for a plant-based diet, the national bestseller Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease explains the science behind the simple plan that has drastically changed the lives of heart disease patients forever. It will empower readers and give them the tools to take control of their heart health. Review Quotes "One of the most outstanding projects in health research of the past century. It's relevant, it's caring, it's innovative, it's extremely well executed and it's very, very useful." --T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., author of The China Study "Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has directed pioneering research demonstrating that the progression of even severe coronary heart disease can often be reversed by making comprehensive change in diet and lifestyle."--Dean Ornish, M.D, founder, president and director of Preventive Medicine Research Institute and author of Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease "I highly recommend Dr. Esselstyn's book."--Kathy Freston, author of Veganist "Dr. Esselstyn has always been ahead of his time. His focus on the healing powers of proper nutrition on diseased coronary arteries has now proven right, raising another unthinkable notion--that heart patients can cure themselves."--Bernadine Healy, M.D., former Director of the National Institutes of Health "A hard nosed scientist shows us his secrets for successfully cleaning the rusting arteries of so many patients - and it doesn't even hurt."--Mehmet Oz, M.D., coauthor, You: The Owner's Manual "Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., is certainly the father (and the mother) of the now proven hypothesis that you can reverse severe arterial disease (including severe disease of the arteries supposed to nourish your heart). He proved that radical changes in diet (and that alone) cause radical changes in the age and disease of your arteries--and that you can make your arteries much younger. So even if you only want to try this plan five days a week, this book is a must purchase because of its great recipes that spice low fat plant based food to high taste--you may even want to enjoy (and know I am using that word specifically and as intentionally as the proposal I made to my wife 33 years ago) the recipes all 7 days."--Michael Roizen, M.D., coauthor of YOU: The Owner's Manual and YOU: On A Diet. The Owner's Manual to Waist Management "This powerful program will make you virtually heart-attack proof. Based on decades of research, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has shown not only how to prevent heart disease, but how to reverse it-even for people who have been affected for many years. I strongly recommend this important book." --Neal D. Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and author of Breaking the Food Seduction "If you have heart disease, this book should be essential reading. It could save your life." --Michael F. Jacobson, Executive Director, Center for Science in the Public Interest "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease provides a practical approach for people to regain their lost health. Considering the worldwide prevalence of coronary artery disease this book should become the bestseller of all times."--John McDougall, M.D., author of The McDougall Program "Dr. Esselstyn's solution in Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease is as profound as Newton's discovery of gravity. Half of all Americans dying today could have changed their date with the undertaker by following Dr. Esselstyn's plan."--Howard F. Lyman, author of No More Bull! and Mad Cowboy "Dr. Esselstyn's eminently successful arrest-and-reversal therapy for heart disease through patient education and empowerment as the treatment of choice will send shock waves through a mercenary medical system that focuses largely on pills and procedures."--Hans Diehl, Founder & Director of the Coronary Health Improvement Program (CHIP) About the Author Caldwell B. Esselstyn, JR., M.D., was a researcher and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic for more than thirty-five years. In 1991, he served as the president of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons and organized the first National Conference on the Elimination of Heart Disease.

Book Synopsis What's the meaning of life?Am I really happy? Why am I going through challenges? As you make progress in overcoming life challenges and grow as a person, you'll eventually arrive at a crossroads, where you'll need to ask yourself these questions. These are calling for you to go on an adventure, to embark on your heroic journey into your inner world to discover who you truly are, what you really want, and why you were born.

He provides psychological insights, visualization exercises, and reflective questions that can begin to heal your deeply held pains and invite realizations to arise. In the process, you will discover your Phoenix, your life-changing transformation and renewed sense of identity that will successfully guide you through life. The phoenix is flying across time and space, arriving at the crossroads of your life.Doubt, and she'll disappear into thin air.Chase, and she'll slip through your fingers like desert sand.Surrender, and she'll show you the way to your destiny.--Hiroyuki Hiro Miyazaki Your Phoenix is your authentic higher self who knows exactly why you were born into this lifetime, what you really want, and where you are headed. As the process of discovering your authenticity involves letting go of the old and rebirthing into a new life, the Phoenix works very well as a metaphor to convey the transformational process and the magnitude of its importance in one's life. Your Phoenix contains your most deeply held beliefs, your values, and the principles you live by. When your Phoenix reveals itself, it fuels you with a deep sense of purpose that burns brightly with the fire of your passion. The Game of Life Theory explains that you were born into this life for a purpose, and before this life, you preplanned important events and meetings so you can grow and fulfill the said purpose. You entered this life without a conscious awareness of such blueprints, and you will depend on your free will to go about your life's path. Does this theory portray the truth about our lives? The author invites you to answer this question only after reading this book in its entirety. This theory explains a lot about the many mysteries of our lives and can be very useful in helping you conquer fears and effectively address your various life situations, thereby enabling you to experience the utmost joy and fulfillment in life.

Know Your Value - by Mika Brzezinski (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 256Genre: Self ImprovementSub-Genre: Personal GrowthFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Hachette BooksAge Range: AdultBook theme: SuccessAuthor: Mika BrzezinskiLanguage: English About the Book Originally published in 2010 by Hachette Books as Knowing your value. Book Synopsis The bestselling motivational guide that TheAtlantic.com calls "a rallying cry for women to get the money they deserve." Why are women so often overlooked and underpaid? What are the real reasons men get raises more often than women? How can women ask for -- and actually get--the money, the job, the recognition they deserve? Prompted by her own experience as cohost of Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski asked a wide range of successful women to share the critical lessons they learned while moving up in their fields. Power players such as Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Harvard's Victoria Budson, comedian Susie Essman, and many more shared their surprising personal stories. They spoke candidly about why women are paid less and the pitfalls women face -- and play into. Now expanded to address gender dynamics in the #MeToo era, Know Your Value blends compelling personal stories with the latest research on why many women don't negotiate their compensation, why negotiating aggressively usually backfires, and what can be done about it. For any woman who has ever wondered if her desire to be liked can be a liability (yes), if there is a way to reclaim her contribution after it's been co-opted in a meeting (yes), and if there are strategies men use to get ahead that women should too (yes!), Know Your Value provides vital advice to help women be their own best advocates. Review Quotes Praise for Mika's previous titles: ---"A rallying cry for women to get the money they deserve."--TheAtlantic.com, -"An in-depth look at how women today achieve their deserved recognition and financial worth." --Today.com, -"An inspiring evaluation of the potential women have to create fully productive lives at work and at home."--Kirkus Reviews, -"Mika Brzezinski... is on a mission to help women know their worth-and claim it. Her book-turned-movement is giving women across the country the support, knowledge and tools they need to successfully advocate for themselves."--Forbes, -"Mika...shares valuable insight on gender bias in the Trump era, how #TimesUp and #MeToo have changed office politics, why women need to stop trash talking other women on the rise and tactical maneuvers to use at the bargaining table."--DC Refined, -"Mika's Know Your Value asks the essential question-are you getting the money, respect, responsibility you deserve?-and shows you how to get it."--Katty Kay, broadcast journalist and bestselling author of The Confidence Code, -"Mika's book reminds us that women are great at asking and advocating for others, but not so great when it comes to advocating for ourselves.... I observed the success women had when they used Mika's tools and strategies. I heard them speaking with more positive self-talk and saying things that reflected a better understanding of the workplace.... Mika's core message is: Get clear about your value at your job. The tool of positive self-talk supports us in this effort. It helps us claim our strengths, accept our weaknesses, put things in perspective and sustain a more open and optimistic point of view."--Medium.com, -"Part memoir and part manifesto...chronicles the author's struggles as a woman in the workforce-and outlines the dos and don'ts of achieving equal pay."--The Daily Beast, -"Provides much-needed perspective....

The Heart Healers - by James Forrester (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 416Genre: MedicalSub-Genre: HistoryFormat: PaperbackPublisher: St. Martin's GriffinAge Range: AdultAuthor: James ForresterLanguage: English About the Book The compelling story of how scientists and doctors learned to save the human heart by one of the men who made it possible Book Synopsis At one time, heart disease was a death sentence. In The Heart Healers, world renowned cardiologist Dr. James Forrester tells the story of the mavericks and rebels who defied the accumulated medical wisdom of the day to begin conquering heart disease. By the middle of the 20th century, heart disease was killing millions and, as with the Black Death centuries before, physicians stood helpless. Visionaries, though, had begun to make strides earlier. On Sept. 7, 1895, Ludwig Rehn successfully sutured the heart of a living man with a knife wound to the chest for the first time. Once it was deemed possible to perform surgery on the heart, others followed. In 1929, Dr. Werner Forssman inserted a cardiac catheter in his own arm and forced the x-ray technician on duty to take a photo as he successfully threaded it down the vein into his own heart...and lived. On June 6, 1944 - D-Day - another momentous event occurred far from the Normandy beaches: Dr. Dwight Harken sutured the shrapnel-injured heart of a young soldier, saved his life and the term cardiac surgeon born. Dr. Forrester tells the story of these rebels and the risks they took with their own lives and the lives of others to heal the most elemental of human organs - the heart. The result is a compelling chronicle of a disease and its cure, a disease that is still with us, but one that is slowly being worn away by The Heart Healers. Review Quotes a stunning survey of cardiology's "Golden Age" and the "misfits" who made it so... It's a book of marvels. - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review Forrester brings history to life and explains complex procedures for lay readers in this excellent book for readers interested in medical history and those who want to understand modern medical procedures. - Library Journal, Starred Review "A heartwarming account of risk-taking, iconoclastic doctors who achieved extraordinary cardiovascular breakthroughs and of the patients who trusted them." --Kirkus Reviews "Dr. James Forrester has been pioneering cardiac treatment for his entire storied career. Now, he brings his ideas and knowledge to all-and the impact will be profound. This book changes the landscape in heart health." --David B. Agus, M.D. Professor of Medicine and Engineering, University of Southern California; New York Times-bestselling author of The End of Illness and A Short Guide to a Long Life "Dr. James Forrester's The Heart Healers is a fast-moving tale told by someone who has lived through many of the developments he describes. Forrester is a gifted writer whose prose flows effortlessly and is, by turns, both inspired and irreverent He always keeps the narrative moving quickly, letting readers in on the fact that that success was not inevitable, describing false starts and blind alleys along the way. The Heart Healers is deepened by the fact of James Forrester's career, his contact with patients and colleagues and the personal stories of patients he has treated and woven into the narrative." --Bruce Fye, M.D. Author of Caring for the Heart: Mayo Clinic and the Rise of Specialization "James Forrester is one of the great medical storytellers of our era.

The Introduction to Systematic Kinesiology - by Brian Henry Butler (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 68Genre: Health + WellnessSub-Genre: Health Care IssuesFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Brian H. ButlerAge Range: AdultAuthor: Brian Henry ButlerLanguage: English About the Book An introduction to Systematic Kinesiology which involves Muscle testing and Holistic Energy Balancing. A Hands-on, Drug-Free, Non-Intrusive, Preventive way to improved "Balanced Health" and Well-Being. Featuring the powerful "Emotional Stress Release" technique. Book Synopsis KINESIOLOGY HELPS PREVENTION!The many imbalances which occur just coping with the stress of everyday life can be found, and then analysed with Kinesiology. All imbalances which can be found with Kinesiolology can be corrected. Health and Well-Being improve.As we become healthier, our own miraculous powers of recuperation can get to work. Our bodies have many very intricate and amazing mechanisms for putting its own house in order. Just watch a cut heal!By balancing imbalances regularly we help the body to solve the little problems. This means that big problems do not get a chance to develop. This opens the door to true prevention.PREVENTION IS DETTER THAN CURE! Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb said over a hundred years ago: The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.We are not quite there yet! But, with Kinesiology we now have the tools to deal with and correct the many day to day imbalances which the body is unable to resolve for itself.KINESIOLOGY CAN HELP WITH OVER 80o/o OF ALL THE THINGS THAT TROUBLE PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT DISEASEIf you have a problem with any of the discomforts we all typically experience, there is a very good chance that Kinesiology will probably help you. Remember it is always wise to have a check-up with a health professional. Persistent problems should always be checked with a physician.Kinesiology is simple, non-intrusive, and enables us to get into harmony with our own bodies. The basics are easy to learn and the results dramatic. Use the ideas in this book, and feel the benefit.EMOTIONAL STRESS RELEASE (E.S.R.)One of the simplest of Kinesiological techniques can help relieve upset feelings in a very powerful way. Emotional Stress Release (E.S.R.) really can work wonders.How many times have you-wanted to reach out and help someone who is very upset? Have you felt a bit helpless sometimes? Tea and sympathy certainly have their place, as does a consoling arm around the shoulder and a listening ear. But unfortunately these sympathetic and kindly acts do not always really help in a permanent way.Everyone has to contend in daily life with events and circumstances which create negative feelings. Keeping calm and centred at times of emotional upsets is not easy. We all experience emotional stress in our lives. It affects us all adversely at one time or another. Kinesiology offers a way to help others resolve upsets simply.Despite all out efforts to keep smiling, life's trials and tribulations sometimes get us down.When we are knocked off our emotional equi librium, everything seems more difficult to handle. Unpleasant jobs we would normally tackle easily seem daunting. Difficult people we can normally cope with suddenly become impossible to contend with. Work stresses we can usually handle, cause us to fly off it!It does not seem to matter how serious the problem appears at the time, using E.S.R. will help the person to deal with it. A few minutes of this hands on method of dealing with upset feel ings will create an entirely new perspective.The amazing thing is that the relief gained seems to be permanent. Review Quotes Where orthodox medicine cannot really help, Kinesiology is an indespensible tool particularly for finding food sensitivities. In using complex homoeopathy it facilitates the selection of the most appropriate remedy. It enables me to get dramatically better insight and results with patients. Dr. R.A.J. DoctorSick for twenty years, aching all over, I was diagnosed as having the total allergy syndrome. Kinesiology has made me a new woman, I can eat anything and even go for seconds! Kinesiology is now a vital part of my daiily work. Ann B. Physiotherapist.They said I had the post viral symdrome. I was totally out of order, no energy, depressed, and all I wanted to do at school for the last ten months is put my head on the table. They found I was wheat sensitive.

Number of Pages: 352Genre: MedicalSub-Genre: EthicsFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Algonquin BooksAge Range: AdultAuthor: Jacob M AppelLanguage: English About the Book Drawing upon the author's two decades teaching medical ethics, as well as his work as a practicing psychiatrist, this profound and addictive little book offers up challenging ethical dilemmas and asks readers: What would you do? Book Synopsis "An original, compelling, and provocative exploration of ethical issues in our society, with thoughtful and balanced commentary. I have not seen anything like it." --Alan Lightman, author of Einstein's Dreams Drawing upon the author's two decades teaching medical ethics, as well as his work as a practicing psychiatrist, this profound and addictive little book offers up challenging ethical dilemmas and asks readers, What would you do?A daughter gets tested to see if she's a match to donate a kidney to her father. The test reveals that she is not the man's biological daughter. Should the doctor tell the father? Or the daughter?A deaf couple prefers a deaf baby. Should they be allowed to use medical technology to ensure they have a child who can't hear? Who should get custody of an embryo created through IVF when a couple divorces? Or, when you or a loved one is on life support, Who says you're dead? In short, engaging scenarios, Dr. Appel takes on hot-button issues that many of us will confront: genetic screening, sexuality, privacy, doctor-patient confidentiality. He unpacks each hypothetical with a brief reflection drawing from science, philosophy, and history, explaining how others have approached these controversies in real-world cases. Who Says You're Dead? is designed to defy easy answers and to stimulate thought and even debate among professionals and armchair ethicists alike. Review Quotes "Appel's scenario approach works well, as readers are challenged to weigh the morality of decisions in our increasingly complex medical world. An easy-to-digest compendium of bioethical issues that provides plenty of food for thought." --Kirkus Reviews "A fascinating and thought-provoking book that should appeal to everyone--doctors, patients, and cloned Neanderthals alike." --A. J. Jacobs, bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically "Important and provocative. Physician, lawyer, and bioethicist: what a perfect trifecta for the author of a book on ethical issues in medicine. I read it from start to finish in one sitting." --Jon LaPook, M.D., Chief Medical Correspondent, CBS News "Dr. Appel adroitly places the dangerous flames of ethical dilemmas into a terrarium for careful examination so we don't burn ourselves." --Mehmet Oz, M.D, Professor of Surgery, Columbia University, host or The Dr. Oz Show "Dr. Appel in his extraordinary book has done a service for the public and health professionals by clearly illustrating the present and evolving medical ethical issues before us. This is a provocative and informative read for all!" --Richard Carmona, MD, MPH, FACS, 17th Surgeon General of the United States "The most thorough set of challenges in tightly reasoned and highly readable scenarios that should be read not only by students and teachers, but by every member of Congress before they vote on issues with ethical implications, which is nearly every vote. An important contribution to philosophy and science. I dare you to try a few." --Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic Magazine, monthly columnist Scientific American, author The Moral Arc "This book will enliven your dinner conversation for months to come. Not only is Who Says You're Dead? a lot of fun; its topic--how technology and ethics co-evolve--is of the utmost importance." --William Poundstone, author of Head in the Cloud: Why Knowing Things Still Matters When Facts Are So Easy to Look Up "I couldn't put it down. Dr. Appel offers analyses that are spot on! Every medical student should be made to read this book. Whether compelling them to do that is ethical or not is an easy choice." --Joe Schwarcz, host of "The Dr. Joe Show" and author of A Feast of Science "Who Says You're Dead? entertains as it educates. Dr. Appel ranges from organ transplantation to embryo custody to voluntary castration and confidentiality laws and, yes, even to the cloning of Neanderthals. It is an exotic journey, and strongly recommended." --E. Fuller Torrey, author of Emerging Brains, Emerging Gods "Jacob Appel is a doctor, lawyer, bio-ethicist, and terrific writer--the perfect person to pose fascinating ethical conundrums and guide us toward practical answers. The biggest messes in modern medicine result when medical technology outpaces medical ethics. This lively book helps right the balance." --Allen Frances, MD, chair of the DSM-IV Task Force and author of Saving Normal "When life seems too simple or dull, open this book. Pick a conundrum, any conundrum. Within a few minutes, you'll be transported into imagining your life as impossibly complex and your decisions absolutely vital.

The Foundations of Mindfulness - by Eric Harrison (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 336Genre: Body + Mind + SpiritSub-Genre: Mindfulness & MeditationFormat: HardcoverPublisher: ExperimentAge Range: AdultAuthor: Eric HarrisonLanguage: English About the Book A brilliant, fresh, essential book for everyone seriously interested in mindfulness--a sparklingly clear, step-by-step explanation of the Buddha's original teachings on the subject, here considered wholly (paradoxically!) from a secular, non-Buddhist perspective Book Synopsis An Essential Addition to Mindfulness Literature Who among us does not want to discern right from wrong and useful from useless in any situation? Thirty years ago--long before the modern mindfulness movement--Eric Harrison began teaching meditation as a secular, science-based therapy. Paradoxically, he rooted his practice in the Buddha's original teaching: the Satipatthana Sutta. The 13 steps in the Sutta offer readers the full benefits of mindfulness: attention, good judgment, and tranquility. Now--informed by a lifetime spent teaching tens of thousands to meditate--Harrison offers both a new translation of the Sutta (the first in modern English) and lucid guidance on how to apply it today. Review Quotes "Brings clear thinking, practical wisdom, and welcome rigor to the widely popular concept of mindfulness."--Publishers Weekly "A deeply engaging book which both Buddhist meditators and secular mindfulness practitioners around the globe will find useful. To help clarify mindfulness, Eric Harrison explores the relationships, overlaps, and divergences between western Buddhist meditation and secular mindfulness. Whatever your particular views and preferences on the subject, TheFoundations of Mindfulness will help you locate them. I also enjoyed Eric's translation of the Satipatthana Sutta for its accessibility." --Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness "The Satipatthana Sutta is one of the Buddha's foundational teachings on mindfulness. This commentary by a staunchly non-Buddhist mindfulness teacher makes for a stimulating and, at times, provocative read." --David Michie, author of The Dalai Lama's Cat series and Mindfulness is Better Than Chocolate
