Writing this book is quite possibly the most selfish thing I have ever done. After living the first 30 years of my life as a prisoner of circumstance - blaming everyone and everything around me for my hopelessness, my anger, my stress and even my obesity; waiting to finally get a ´´break´´ and confidently proclaiming that my victim personality was permanent and ´´ just the way I am´´ (I´m sure none of you reading this can relate) - I finally discovered the simple and powerful distinction that helped me transition from a helpless, exhausted, overwhelmed, and overcommitted prisoner to a creative, conscious, and courageous self-leader. While it´s true that as a speaker, trainer, and coach, I could tell you I wrote Prison Break because I was so passionate about sharing with you what I know has been the most pivotal piece of my personal transformation, it´s only half of the self-serving story. I also wrote it because it is the book I needed to read (and will no doubt refer to for the rest of my life for a gentle reminder...or 40) to help me see through the lies, myths, and fundamental misunderstandings I held for so long about how the world worked. (Spoiler: It never seemed to ´´work´´ for me until I developed this new understanding; these new tools.) What you will find in this book is not an instruction manual but rather a destruction manual - breaking down the self-imposed walls and barriers that I worked so tirelessly to erect over the first few decades of my life and that I have seen affect so many of the thousands of people I have met, trained, and coached. 1.

As in no other ´´dog book´´ or training manual, in Bones Would Rain from the Sky an extraordinary woman shows us how to find a deep connection with another being and to receive an incomparable gift: a profound, lifelong relationship with the dog you love. 1.

At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human life. Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, aggression and response in kind can lead only to destruction, we must learn to work with conflict in a more profound and effective way. Crucial to this strategic vision is knowledge - especially self-knowledge - and a view of the whole that seeks to bring conflicting views into a larger perspective. The Denma Translation Group´s presentation of The Art of War is a meticulously faithful version that carefully preserves the enigmatic quality of the original - allowing us to discover innumerable insights in its lines millennia after this oral tradition was first set down. Line-by-line commentary reveals the broader implications of Sun Tzu´s teachings and how they can be applied to everyday circumstances.

There’s a terrifying truth facing today’s men, and it’s caught many off guard. But once that first overwhelming challenge hits, the reality about evil becomes clear: Every one of us is in a fight for our lives. The enemy is real–and so is the danger. But powerful forces convince us to ignore the spiritual war surrounding us. And that willing surrender ensures the total destruction of all we hold dear. But a new generation of God’s men is beginning to engage with the tools and training to take the fight to the enemy and respond with boldness and duty. This book is the manual for recognizing the deceptions about doing true spiritual battle, realizing the roles men play at the front lines, and rescuing the captives from the enemy’s stronghold. 1.

In Prophets, Gurus, and Pundits, author Anna M. Young proposes that the difficulty of bridging the gap between intellectuals and the public is not a failure of ideas; rather, it is an issue of rhetorical strategy. By laying a rhetorical foundation and presenting analytical case studies of contemporary ´´public intellectuals,´´ Young creates a training manual for intellectuals who seek to connect with a public audience and effect change writ large. Young begins by defining key aspects of rhetorical style before moving on to discuss the specific ways in which intellectuals may present ideas to a general audience in order to tackle large-scale social problems. Next, she defines the ways in which five crucial turning points in our nation - the rise of religious fundamentalism, a growing lack of trust in our institutions, the continued destruction of the environment, the ubiquity of media and information in our daily lives, and the decline of evidence-based reasoning, have set the stage for opportunities in the current public-intellectual dialogue. Via case studies of such well-known personalities as Deepak Chopra and Professor Cornel West, Young goes on to reveal the types of public intellectuals who achieve success 1. Language: English.

Tantrum Survival Kit is a compendium of the latest empirically based techniques documented for disruptive (tantrum, other) children, ages preteen to teenage years. This simple-to-use manual provides rapid solutions for professionals and parents. User-friendly steps conveniently describe the logical way to control tantrums, especially for nontraditional parents (e.g., grandparents, foster parents, stepparents, and adoptive parents). Category one is comprised of garden-variety verbal escalations that are universally present in most preteen to teenage households. Category two deals with more seriously aggressive tantrums in preteen children, from self-injurious to malicious property destruction. Category three spells out a remedy for explosively violent tantrums in teenagers without parents falling into traps. Listeners also get a privileged look at the reasons why commercially and research-favored methods do not work and have nasty side effects. The chapter on impulsiveness and attention spans provides succinct explanations for behavior problems and how to cure them. Steps show how to bypass labels of ADD and ADHD and deal directly with the child´s behavior. The chapter on tantrums in school informs parents and therapists on why programs fail, and how to liaison with teachers and personnel in repairing school behavior problems. No other book on the trade market comprehensively covers the inner workings of schools and how to navigate the maze. Unlike other tantrum manuals, this book is encyclopedic in its detailed review of tantrums, tantrum-related problems, and solutions to obstacles encountered during interventions. 1.

Terrorists have taken down America´s electrical grid in the simplest way possible, they shot holes in it. The same as they had previously tried on the Silicon Valley in 2013 that most people in the know said was a trial run to destroy America. The attack, which nearly took out power to parts of Silicon Valley, has been called ´´the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred´´ by the nation´s top electrical utility regulator. The destruction continues and mayhem ensues as hackers use cyber-attacks to further destabilize the world and take down the nation´s infrastructure. Joe and Mary are just common citizens caught up in the chaos with their two teen age kids as society collapses. They don´t have a clue how to survive the famine and the violence ahead except for a very brief survival manual a prepper friend gave them that has been languishing with the rest of the unwanted Christmas gifts of years past. Could this small text containing nothing more than basic preparedness advice be their salvation? As terrorists both foreign and domestic play cops and robbers with the authorities by using snipers and small team military style raids against water, power and gas, the family reads what they should do to survive with no supplies. The government says the lights will be back on in eight weeks, but eight weeks of no food and water in the big cities will tip the scales toward eternity as the grim reaper sharpens his scythe. Millions will die by famine, disease and violence, the Jones family says, not them, but wish they had bought a gun before now. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis Adkinson.
