Understanding Your Dog for Dummies gives you everything you need to learn to understand your pooch's unique dialect of "Doglish"-and shows you how to take on the role as pack leader to give your dog the cues, guidance, and consistency she needs to shape and develop good behaviors. Inside you'll discover how to: Read your dog's body language, communicate with your dog, interpret your dog's breed-specific traits, correct dog-behavior-gone-bad, counter anxiety-based behavior, understand and resolve aggressive behavior, and so much more!

Elaine Aron follows up her bestsellers on the highly sensitive person with a groundbreaking new book on the undervalued self. She explains that self-esteem results from having a healthy balance of love and power in our lives. Readers will learn to incorporate love into situations that seem to require power and deal with power struggles that mask themselves as issues of love. From the bedroom to the boardroom, her strategies will enable us to escape feelings of shame, defeat, and depression; dissolve relationship hostility; and become our best selves. With Aron's clear, empathetic writing and extraordinary scientific and human insight, THE UNDERVALUED SELF is a simple and effective guide to developing healthy, fulfilling relationships, and finding true self-worth.
Like heart disease, says psychotherapist Richard O'Connor, depression is fueled by complex and interrelated factors: genetic, biochemical, environmental. In this refreshingly sensible book, O'Connor focuses on an additional factor often overlooked: our own habits. Unwittingly we get good at depression. We learn how to hide it, how to work around it. We may even achieve great things, but with constant struggle rather than satisfaction. Relying on these methods to make it through each day, we deprive ourselves of true recovery, of deep joy and healthy emotion. UNDOING DEPRESSION teaches us how to replace depressive patterns with a new and more effective set of skills. We already know how to "do" depression--and we can learn how to undo it. With a truly holistic approach that synthesizes the best of the many schools of thought about this painful disease, O'Connor offers new hope--and new life--for sufferers of depression.

Dr. Bob Rotella is the preeminent golf psychologist to the game's top players--he has coached stars like Keegan Bradley, Padraig Harrington, and Darren Clarke--and he has offered his advice to golfers of all skill levels in his bestselling books, including Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect and Golf Is a Game of Confidence. Now, he tackles the mind's role in the most difficult aspect of golfing--the short game. It's no secret that more than two-thirds of the shots a golfer makes are short ones: putts, chips, and pitches. Long drives may garner applause, but whether a golfer wants to win the Masters or just five bucks from a friend on Saturday morning, it's the little shots that make the difference. Yet many players either fail to recognize or choose to ignore the importance of the short game. In The Unstoppable Golfer, Dr. Rotella applies the same wisdom and experience that have worked for clients like Davis Love III and Graeme McDowell to help every golfer master this special art of short shots and take all the frustration out of this increasingly challenging element of the game. Requiring extraordinary levels of concentration, the short game is typically a source of fear for amateurs and pros alike. In this book, Dr. Rotella teaches readers how to overcome that fear by using their minds to achieve a state of calm in which the focus is on one thing alone: the hole. Rotella shares stories about professionals with whom he has worked who have mastered the psychological aspect of successful putting by adhering to simple--but hard-to-follow--rules and practices that will improve any golfer's game: stay focused on your targets, visualize your shots, commit to your routine, and accept completely whatever happened to the golf ball. On top of citing his experiences with golfers, Dr. Rotella also probes the science of memory and how knowledge of the brain's workings--especially those areas that deal with physical tasks--can markedly improve a golf game, particularly when it comes to getting out of a bunker or taking the measure of a long putt. For casual and dedicated golfers alike, a better short game provides one of the ultimate pleasures of golf--a pleasure they will come to know by training their minds to allow them to become unstoppable golfers. SINCE 1984, GOLFERS COACHED BY DR. BOB ROTELLA HAVE WON A TOTAL OF: 74 major professional titles 2 Masters tournaments 12 U.S. Opens 12 British Opens 11 PGA Championships 4 U.S. Women's Opens 6 LPGA Championships 5 Kraft-Nabisco Championships 5 Tradition Championships 7 Women's British Opens 2 Senior PGA Championships 5 U.S. Senior Opens 3 Senior Players Championships

Have you ever found yourself caught on a roller-coaster ride that you weren't standing in line for? If so, you'll appreciate the way that author Joe Stowell reminds you of the important truths you need to know that will help you hold on with certainty and stay on board, even in the ups, downs, and wild curves of pain and suffering. The difference between a roller-coaster ride and trouble is clear. If we want to ride a roller coaster, we stand in line, eagerly waiting to enjoy the thrill; but trouble comes to us all, whether it takes the form of the death of a loved one, an illness, the untimely loss of a job, or the sudden break-up of a marriage. It's a "ride" that we would rather avoid, and none of us eagerly stands in line for it. In The Upside of Down, Dr. Stowell presents tribulation as God's tool to prepare Christians for His use. Citing numerous passages of Scripture and the personal experiences of Christians who have suffered, Stowell explains that ordeals will come, but we can respond productively in the midst of trouble if we remember that there is an ultimate purpose behind our suffering and that the "end of the ride is God's responsibility."
In his gut-wrenching memoir of brutal crime, prison time, and ultimate redemption, author Weldon Long tells the true story of how he transformed himself from a drug-addled convict to the CEO of a multimillion-dollar business by discovering the upside of fear.
The Upside of the Downturn: Ten Management Strategies to Prevail in the Recession and Thrive in the Aftermathby Geoff Colvin
Colvin advocates strategies during trade recession and shows how these strategies really work, using examples of major companies that have applied them with inspiring results.
Today, when your fortunes can literally change overnight, the new strategic imperative is making your moment of maximum risk your moment of maximum opportunity. In The Upside, Adrian Slywotzky provides bold and original ideas for growth breakthroughs as well as the practical tools to use Monday morning, such as *How to change the odds for your next major initiative and create potential industry breakthroughs, as Toyota did with its expanding universe of Prius vehicles. *Shape and exploit risk, don't be shaped by it. Become a knowledge-intensive business and continually increase the knowledge gap between yourself and rivals, as Coach and Tsutaya of Japan have convincingly done. *A category killer can't kill what's not in its category. When basketball legend Bill Russell faced a taller, stronger Wilt Chamberlain, he led the Celtics to victory by inventing a different game. The same thinking lets Target prosper in a Wal-Mart world--and can help you outcompete the "unbeatable" rival in your own industry. *When you come to a fork in the road--take it! Only a fraction of companies survive when industries experience technological or strategic transitions. To be a survivor, learn the secret that enabled Microsoft to weather the advent of the Internet--the art of the double bet. *Stuck in a business box? Find the bigger box--and then the biggest. When growth stagnates, capture more of your customer's dollars through demand innovation and big-box thinking, as companies from Continental AG and Ikea to Procter & Gamble have done. *Your competitors can also be your greatest enablers of profit. Stop competing yourself to death! The key is knowing when to compete and when to collaborate, as Apple has shown with its revolutionary approach to the music business. In the 1980s conventional wisdom was that you could have high quality or low cost, but not both--until Japanese makers of cars and electronics showed otherwise. Now, high quality and low cost are required just to enter the marketplace. Today, we face a similar paradox when it comes to risk and reward. Rather than shrink from the high risk so integral to the tumultuous global economy, Adrian Slywotzky shows how it can be your greatest source of growth and future reward.
