Death Benefits

by Jeanne Safer

Although five percent of the population loses a mother or father. . . few of us are psychologically prepared for the experience in later life. Death Benefits explores the uncharted territory each of us enters when a parent leaves us, and offers a blueprint for positive change in every aspect of our lives. Death Benefits demonstrates through powerful stories (including the author's own revelatory experience) how parent loss is the most potent catalyst for change in middle age and can actually offer us our last, best chance to become our truest, deepest selves. Safer challenges the conventional wisdom that fundamental change is only for the young; and that loss must simply be endured or overcome. Filled with moving and engaging stories of real men and women re-imagining themselves after a parent's death, it is a fresh, impassioned, and sophisticated look at self-transformation in later life.

Bold, surprising, and compassionate, Death Benefits challenges the idea that loss must simply be endured or overcome.

Death by Carbs: Are you eating yourself into an early grave?

by Dr Stephen K. Fairley

There are three serious, widespread addictions in Western society that account for countless unnecessary and premature deaths. We all have to die sometime; these things just help to ensure our death is sooner rather than later. Tobacco and alcohol are self-explanatory and accepted without question by most people. What most of us don't seem to realise is that far more people die prematurely from carbohydrate poisoning than tobacco and alcohol combined. Premature death by carbohydrate poisoning is a slow but steady process that is potentially completely avoidable. Each year this results in the premature deaths of many millions of unsuspecting people worldwide, particularly in Western societies. Are you at risk? Do you know how to avoid this Grim Reaper that is trying to take your soul to another place before you are ready to leave? This book reviews the scientific evidence behind the claims.

Death, Hope And Sex: Steps To An Evolutionary Ecology Of Mind And Morality

by James S. Chisholm

By showing how and why human nature is what it is, evolutionary theory can help us see better what we need to do to improve the human condition. Following evolutionary theory to its logical conclusion, Death, Hope and Sex uses life history theory and attachment theory to construct a model of human nature in which critical features are understood in terms of the development of alternative reproductive strategies contingent on environmental risk and uncertainty. James Chisholm examines the implications of this model for perspectives on concerns associated with human reproduction, including teen pregnancy, and young male violence. He thus develops new approaches for thorny issues such as the nature-nurture and mind-body dichotomies. Bridging the gap between the social and biological sciences, this far-reaching volume will be a source of inspiration, debate and discussion for all those interested in the evolution of human nature and the potential for an evolutionary humanism.

Debt Free For Life: The Finish Rich Plan for Financial Freedom

by David Bach

GOODBYE DEBT--HELLO FREEDOM! Most of us grew up with the idea that there is good debt and there is bad debt. Good debts are generally considered to be debts you incur to buy things that can go up in value--like a home or college education. Bad debts are things like credit card balances, where you borrowed money to buy things that depreciate or go down in value, like most consumer goods. But as America's favorite financial coach, David Bach, points out, in difficult times there is no such thing as good debt. There is only debt. And all debt is too expensive-if what you desire is FREEDOM! In fact, Bach believes the best investment you can make today is to pay down your debt, faster and smarter than you have ever attempted before--starting today! In Debt Free for Life, #1 New York Times bestselling author David Bach has written his most groundbreaking and important book since The Automatic Millionaire, giving us the knowledge, the tools, and the mindset we need to get out of debt and achieve financial freedom-forever! Offering a revolutionary approach to personal finance that teaches you how to pay down your debt and adopt a whole new way of living, debt free. Bach unveils the Debt Wise program that empowers you to pare down your debt automatically. You'll learn how to calculate your Debt Freedom Day -- the actual date you will be completely free of debt. And you'll discover that when you are debt free, you need a lot less money to live on. You can retire, even with a smaller nest egg -- perhaps earlier than you expected. David Bach has coached millions to pay off their debt and now he can guide you. Whether you have home loans, student loans, car loans, credit card debt-paying down your debt is truly a game you can win, if you know the rules. Debt Free For Life will teach you the rules and give you the tools to buy back your freedom.

The December Project

by Sara Davidson

In 2009, New York Times bestselling author Sara Davidson was surprised by a call from Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, asking her to engage with him in what he called "The December Project." At eighty-five, Reb Zalman wanted to teach people how to navigate the December of life and to help them "not freak out about dying."Davidson jumped at the chance. She feared that death would be a complete annihilation, while Reb Zalman felt certain that "something continues." For two years, they met every Friday to discuss this and how getting "up close with mortality" quickens our ability to relish every day.Woven through their talks are sketches from Reb Zalman's life: escaping the Nazis; becoming an orthodox rabbi in the U.S.; landing in San Francisco during the sexual revolution; taking L.S.D. with Timothy Leary; befriending other faith leaders, including Thomas Merton and the Dalai Lama; and founding the Jewish Renewal movement.During their time together, Davidson was nearly killed by a suicide bomb and Reb Zalman faced a steep decline in health. They created strategies to deal with pain and memory loss and found tools to cultivate fearlessness and joy--at any age. Davidson includes twelve exercises so readers can experience what she did, a sea change in facing what we all must face: mortality.
