My Voice Will Go with You: The Teaching Tales of Milton H. Erickson

by Sidney Rosen Milton H. Erickson

Milton Erickson's teaching tales--the stories he told his patients and the stories he told the pilgrims who came to sit at his feet --are ingenious and enchanting. They are extraordinary examples of the art of persuasion. Some people would say that they are much too good to be tucked away on the psychiatry shelf, since even though their intention was therapeutic, they are part of a much larger tradition: the American tradition of wit and humor whose greatest exemplar is Mark Twain.

My Year Off

by Robert Mccrum

'When I was just forty-two I suffered a severe stroke. Paralysed on my left side and unable to walk, I was confined to hospital for three months, then spent about a year recovering, slowly getting myself back into the world. When I was seriously ill in hospital, I longed to read a book that would tell me that I might expect in convalescence and also give me something to think about. . . ' 'Not only a riveting account of his sudden illness, but of love being put under a real test: a heart-warming triumph' Kazuo Ishiguro, Sunday Times Books of the Year 'With its lucid heartfelt prose, My Year Offgives voice to the millions of people who suffer strokes . . . More importantly, this book is a testament to the parallel trials and courage of the family members of stroke victims' New York Times Book Review 'Few of us can write in perfect health with the wit, skill, honesty and compassion that McCrum manages following a stroke' Professor Anthony Clare

The Myth of Stress: Where Stress Really Comes From and How to Live a Happier and Healthier Life

by Andrew Bernstein

Where does stress come from? Financial pressures? Looming deadlines? Conflicts at work or at home? For more than half a century, we've been told that stress comes from circumstances like these, that it's a by-product of our ancestors' fight-or-flight response to danger, and that the best we can do, given the fast pace of life today, is to breathe, try to relax, and accept that life is hard. All of this, according to Andrew Bernstein, is wrong. Spurred by the death of several family members when he was young, Bernstein began a quest to understand the real dynamics of stress and resilience. He eventually realized that stress doesn't come from your circumstances--it comes from your thoughts about your circumstances. More specifically, stress is created by a particular kind of thought that humans happen to excel at. Seeing this, Bernstein realized that the antidote to stress--and the key to far greater resilience--is not exercise or physical relaxation, but finding these stress-producing thoughts and finally dismantling them. He created a process called ActivInsight that helps you--and the people you care about--do this on your own in just seven steps, often yielding life-changing breakthroughs in a matter of minutes. Bernstein has been teaching ActivInsight to great acclaim in schools, not-for-profits, and Fortune 500 companies since 2004. Now he shares this technique for the first time with a wider audience. In The Myth of Stress,you will experience the surprising power of this new approach for yourself as you apply ActivInsight to a wide variety of today's most common challenges, including:weight loss * money * success interpersonal conflict * addiction * traffic * divorce * heartbreak * discrimination * anger uncertainty about the future * loss of a loved one * and more. With compassion, intelligence, and humor,The Myth of Stress offers a complete reeducation in the nature of stress, permanently changing the way you relate to challenges--at school, at work, and at home--in order to live a happier and healthier life.

Natural Causes: Death, Lies and Politics in America's Vitamin and Herbal Supplement Industry

by Dan Hurley

A riveting work of investigative journalism that charts the rise of the dietary supplement craze and reveals the dangerous---and sometimes deadly---side of these highly popular and completely unregulated products. Over 60 percent of Americans buy and take herbal and dietary supplements for all sorts of reasons---to prevent illness (vitamin C), to ease depression (St. John's wort), to aid weight loss (ephedra), to boost the memory (ginkgo biloba), and even to cure cancer (shark cartilage, bloodroot)---despite the fact that few of these "natural" supplements have been proven to be safe or effective. The vitamin and herbal supplement industry generates over $20 billion a year by selling products that promise to cure or fix, but are produced and marketed essentially without oversight. And while the media has been quick to sensationalize the benefits of supplements, few have taken a hard look at the dangers posed by many of the remedies flooding the market today. Award-winning journalist Dan Hurley breaks the silence for the first time in Natural Causes. From the snake-oil salesmen of the early twentieth century, to rise of the health food movement in the sixties and seventies, Hurley charts the remarkable growth of an industry built largely on fraud, and reveals the backroom politics that led to the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, which effectively freed the industry from FDA oversight. In unprecedented detail, he shows how supplement manufacturers have concealed the truth about dozens of untested treatments and the shocking rise in deaths, disfigurements, and life-threatening injuries caused by products deceptively promoted as "safe and natural." Most importantly, he provides a telling look at why, in an age of unprecedented scientific advancement, we continue to buy and believe in remedies for which little evidence exists--and why the supplements we take to promote our health may be doing far more harm than good. As Hurley shows, the dietary supplement craze may be one of the greatest swindles ever perpetrated on the American public---one that feeds billions of dollars each year into the pockets of lobbyists, politicians, and any charlatan who wants to slap a label on a bottle and tout it as the next big "natural cure." Blending hard facts with spellbinding personal stories, Natural Causes is a must-read for anyone who has ever popped a multivitamin or an herb, and provides a hard-hitting, frightening look at a cultural trend that is out of control.
