With his trademark charm and eloquence, Greg Norman reveals the secrets behind his myriad achievements, tracing his journey from Queensland, Australia, to the World Golf Hall of Fame to chairman and CEO of a global business. Since the days in 1975 when he made thirtyeight dollars a week working as a trainee, Norman has won ninety-one professional tournaments around the world, including two British Opens and twenty U.S. PGA Tour titles, and he held the No. 1 World Ranking for an astonishing 331 weeks. Norman has brought the same competitive fire to the boardroom, building a business that reflects the diversity of his interests and the power of his brand. Norman has done something very few professional athletes have ever managed -- he has transcended the sport that made him famous. As head of Great White Shark Enterprises, Norman presides over a multimillion-dollar empire that ranges from golf course design to real estate to apparel to wine. An astute businessman with unmatched desire and drive, he has an unerring instinct for knowing what will work and what won't. He has combined a hands-on approach with an overall strategic vision to produce an internationally recognized and respected brand. In these pages, Norman illustrates the principles that are at the core of his successes and offers readers concrete advice for applying their own talents to successfully play both the "front nine" and the "back nine" of life. Practical, engaging, and incisive, The Way of the Shark shares the lessons Greg Norman has learned both on the course and off, demonstrating how anyone, at any stage of his or her career, can be a champion.

The writing of science fiction poses special problems, in addition to those involved in all fiction writing. Often the writer has to create a whole new world - invent a believable future or rewrite the past authentically. He has to design an alien world, and adapt human biology and geology to it. He must develop imaginary technology and avoid making elementary errors in science. He may even have to use language in an entirely new way. The Way To Write Science Fiction tackles all these subjects, as well as giving practical guidance on markets and the contemporary science fiction scene. Brian Stableford is supremely well-qualified to write this book; the author of over 30 science fiction novels, he is also the co-author of The Science in Science Fiction which won the 1985 European Science Fiction Award and has contributed to many reference books on literature in general and science fiction in particular.

WE ARE ANGELS will appeal to everyone longing to remove suffering and obstructions from their current and past lives.
"My hope is to clear up your amnesia and help you remember what you once knew in childlike innocence: that there is something or someone out there bigger than you who has a divine purpose for your life. The first step in any spiritual journey is a longing for home, a yearning to reconnect with something bigger than you. The focus in this book is on "suiting up"- deliberately accepting on faith God's unconditional love for us as manifested in His gift of grace. ... Rather than trying to persuade you what to do, I'd simply like to share what I believe is an incredibly good deal. It answers the questions about self-esteem once and for all, for it's the realization that once you receive the Lord's forgiveness through grace, you have all the love you will ever need. No amount of striving for approval or achieving greater and greater things will give you more love and acceptance than you already have."

Based on her popular workshops in Canada and Europe, Welcome to the Fifth Dimension is author Diane LeBlanc's guide to helping readers recognize and integrate their multiple dimensions. Through examples, exercises, and channeled teachings, she shows us how to regain our co-creative power and live each day and moment in a state of grace. The key, says LeBlanc, is Quintessence, a self-coaching program that revitalizes the five most important dimensions of human existence in order to feel better, recover from disease, and be fully happy. The book breaks Quintessence into groups of five: the five energy fields that surround the body, the individual's five main ÒSoul families,Ó the five dimensions of the human brain, and others. The book assesses and draws on many contemporary schools of thought, as seen in books like The Law of Attraction, The Power of Now, and The Celestine Prophecy. It also provides original teachings channeled from the powerful entity LeBlanc describes as the "Mother Earth Consciousness," personified as Bianca Gaia who is LeBlanc's alter ego. Packed with charts, diagrams, and illustrations, this compelling book encourages readers to radically enhance their health and happiness by opening their minds to this new way of thinking.
What do your people at work and your spouse and kids at home have in common with a five-ton killer whale? Probably a whole lot more than you think, according to top business consultant and mega-bestselling author Ken Blanchard and his coauthors from SeaWorld. In this moving and inspirational new book, Blanchard explains that both whales and people perform better when you accentuate the positive. He shows how using the techniques of animal trainers -- specifically those responsible for the killer whales of SeaWorld -- can supercharge your effectiveness at work and at home. When gruff business manager and family man Wes Kingsley visited SeaWorld, he marveled at the ability of the trainers to get these huge killer whales, among the most feared predators in the ocean, to perform amazing acrobatic leaps and dives. Later, talking to the chief trainer, he learned their techniques of building trust, accentuating the positive, and redirecting negative behavior -- all of which make these extraordinary performances possible. Kingsley took a hard look at his own often accusatory management style and recognized how some of his shortcomings as a manager, spouse, and father actually diminish trust and damage relationships. He began to see the difference between "GOTcha" (catching people doing things wrong) and "Whale Done!" (catching people doing things right). InWhale Done!,Ken Blanchard shows how to make accentuating the positive and redirecting the negative the best tools to increase productivity, instead of creating situations that demoralize people. These techniques are remarkably easy to master and can be applied equally well at home, allowing readers to become better parents and more committed spouses in their happier and more successful personal lives.
