People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It!

by Larry Winget

We talk a lot about the things we want. I want more money. I want a better relationship with my spouse. I want good responsible kids. I want a promotion. I want to be healthy. I want to be smarter. I want to retire. I want, I want, I want. . . But do you know what people really want? They want what they've got. It's a simple formula: You have what you want because your actions produced your results. Not your words and certainly not your wants. In his signature caustic, yet loveable style, Larry dishes out straight talk on what he calls "life's messes" and offers up his advice topped with a dollop of common sense. We all know that people do stupid things to sabotage their success, and we can all think of areas in our own lives where we are just plain being idiots! So here is what Larry is proposing: Recognize where you are being an idiot and then take action to stop being an idiot. He takes on business, family, health, being fat, being stupid, success, money, and more, and tells us step by step what we need to change. He tells us to take responsibility for our words and our wants and put them into action. Why Larry? We have seen him do it as an expert on TV, coaching people on taking control of their money. We turn to him for business advice and kick-in-the- pants motivation. But why ask Larry for advice on things like relationships and parenting? Larry says the answers to most problems, whether personal or professional, go hand in hand. What it takes to be a great leader is what it takes to be a great parent. The principles it takes to be a good salesperson are the same principles it takes to get along with others. The principles of personal success are the same principles of business success and financial success. This book is a little mirror you can hold up to your life to reflect back to you your areas of stupidity. A mirror that has a little action plan taped to the back of it. A little bit of business. A little bit of personal development. A little finance. A little parenting. A little health and wellness. And a whopping dose of common sense!The Pitbull of Personal Development ® and New York Times bestselling author Larry Winget brings us advice on the dumb things we are doing to sabotage our success. Larry Winget is back, and this time he's telling us that most people are idiots! And that seems harsh. But in fact this is Larry's most positive book yet because he believes that what people really want is to be told the truth. And usually the truth isn't pretty. When you have had it with hand holding and making excuses for why you are not doing as well as you could be doing, when you are ready to hear someone tell it to you like it is, tell you exactly what you are doing wrong and how to fix it, Larry is your man. Do you have a plan for success? Why not? It's time to cut out the endless chatter about the things you want, the things you wish you had. It's time to stop wasting your time with excuses and explanations for why you aren't quite where you need to be. This book is the swift kick you need to cut out the bad habits that are keeping you from your goals. Figure out what you really want, not what you say you want, and get started on your action plan for success.

The 2012 Collection

by Daniel Pinchbeck

Now in the years beyond 2012--discover the true meaning behind the hype that captivated the world. It should be no surprise to us now, but the pomp surrounding the coming of the year 2012 that grasped the human race's attention in those preceding years was not at all about the end of the world. Instead, much to the contrary, Daniel Pinchbeck believes that the passing of the year 2012 marked the beginning of a global shift in consciousness--where the human race would begin to see the world and existence on this planet through a different lens, embracing fresh ideas about who we are and what it means to be human. Discover the true wisdom behind the 2012 phenomenon with these two captivating works by one of the leading minds in the movement--both in one place for the first time, and at one low price. 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl Cross James Merrill, H. P. Lovecraft, and Carlos Castaneda--each imbued with a twenty-first-century aptitude for quantum theory and existential psychology--and you get the voice of Daniel Pinchbeck. And yet, nothing quite prepares us for the lucidity, rationale, and informed audacity of this seeker, skeptic, and cartographer of hidden realms. Throughout the 1990s, Pinchbeck had been a member of New York's literary select. He wrote for publications such as The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, and Harper's Bazaar. His first book, Breaking Open the Head, was heralded as the most significant on psychedelic experimentation since the work of Terence McKenna. But slowly something happened: Rather than writing from a journalistic remove, Pinchbeck--his literary powers at their peak--began to participate in the shamanic and metaphysical belief systems he was encountering. As his psyche and body opened to new experience, disparate threads and occurrences made sense like never before: Humanity, every sign pointed, is precariously balanced between greater self-potential and environmental disaster. The Mayan calendar's "end date" of 2012 seems to define our present age: It heralds the end of one way of existence and the return of another, in which the serpent god Quetzalcoatl reigns anew, bringing with him an unimaginably ancient--yet, to us, wholly new--way of living. A result not just of study but also of participation, 2012 tells the tale of a single man in whose trials we ultimately recognize our own hopes and anxieties about modern life. Toward 2012: Perspectives on the Next Age An informed, challenging, and engaging collection of essays on the new choices in lifestyles and community as we begin the countdown toward the year 2012. This fresh and thought-provoking anthology draws together some of today's most celebrated visionaries, thinkers, and pioneers in the field of evolving consciousness--exploring topics from shamanism to urban homesteading, the legacy of Carlos Castaneda to Mayan predictions for the year 2012, and new paths in direct political action and human sexuality. Toward 2012 highlights some of the most challenging, intelligent pieces published on the acclaimed website Reality Sandwich. It is coedited by Daniel Pinchbeck, the preeminent voice on 2012, and online pioneer Ken Jordan, and features original works from Stanislav Grof, John Major Jenkins, and Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky); interviews with Abbie Hoffman and artist Alex Grey; and a new introduction by Pinchbeck. Here are ideas that trace the arc of our evolution in consciousness, lifestyles, and communities as we draw closer to a moment in time that portends ways of living that are different from anything we have expected or experienced.

The 1st Victim

by Tami Hoag

Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska return to investigate the death of a Jane Doe in New York Times bestseller Tami Hoag's short story The 1st Victim. New Year's Day is a time for new beginnings, but Minneapolis homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are focused on endings: specifically, the tragic end of their latest murder victim, an unidentified young woman discovered on the side of the freeway. Believed to be the victim of a serial killer, Kovac and Liska are determined to do the girl the small justice of returning her body to her family as they investigate her case, but it is no simple task matching the broken corpse to any of the scores of missing persons reports, especially when no one seems to be looking for her. Meanwhile, recent widow Jeannie Reiser is frantic when she is unable to get in touch with her daughter, Rose, who, as an eighteen-year-old, is a legal adult rather than a missing child in the eyes of the law. Jeannie's desperate attempts to get the police to believe her child is in trouble lead her closer and closer to the New Year's Doe and to an evil even Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska may be unable to stop. Tami Hoag once again proves her place as "one of the most intense suspense writers around"* with The 1st Victim. *Chicago Tribune

A Course in Happiness

by Mardi Horowitz

A three-part course in one of the most vital subjects known to man: how to be happy. If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands . . . The simple lyrics of this nursery-school song tune small children in to the important life skill of recognizing and acknowledging good feelings within themselves. For adults, getting in touch with a sense of happiness is rarely so simple. It seems what so many of us need is an education on the subject . . . a virtual Course in Happiness. In this book, Mardi Horowitz draws on more than forty years of experience as a psychiatrist to provide readers with just this. According to Dr. Horowitz, in order to identify the root causes of our discontent, it is necessary to consider all the experiences, memories, and emotions that constitute selfhood, the true 'I' in each of us. A Course in Happiness guides readers through a strenuous but deeply rewarding education in mastering the three essential life skills that underlie the achievement of this level of self-understanding: * INTEGRATION: the ability to assemble all the pieces of one's self into a whole, understood, and respected 'me. ' * INTIMACY: the capacity to remain closely connected to the warmth of relationships with family, friends, and others in a social community. * INTEGRITY: an awareness of which of one's values are most dear and which are lower in priority-and then to be true to what is most important, even in the midst of conflict. A Course in Happiness offers a road map for achieving genuine contentment in life.

Street Gang

by Michael Davis

The story of one of the most important and beloved shows on television-how it got started, nearly failed, and was saved by Elmo When the first episode aired on November 10, 1969, Sesame Streetrevolutionized the way education was presented to children on television. It has since become the longest-running children's show in history, and today reaches 8 million preschoolers on 350 PBS stations and airs in 120 countries. Street Gangis the compelling and often comical story of the creation and history of this media masterpiece and pop culture landmark, told with the cooperation of one of the show's cofounders, Joan Ganz Cooney. Sesame Streetwas born as the result of a discussion at a dinner party at Cooney's home about the poor quality of children's programming and hit the air as a big bang of creative fusion from Jim Henson and company, quickly rocketing to success. Street Gangtraces the evolution of the show from its inspiration in the civil rights movement through its many ups and downs-from Nixon's trying to cut off its funding to the rise of Elmo-via the remarkable personalities who have contributed to it. Davis reveals how Sesame Streethas taught millions of children not only their letters and numbers, but also cooperation and fair play, tolerance and self-respect, conflict resolution, and the importance of listening. This is the unforgettable story of five decades of social and cultural change and the miraculous creative efforts, passion, and commitment of the writers, producers, directors, animators, and puppeteers who created one of the most influential programs in the history of television.

Black Ops

by Griffin W. E. B

Delta Force Lieutenant Colonel Charley Castillo receives a series of back-channel messages concerning covert US intelligence assets gone missing and then, suddenly, inexplicably, found dead. One in Budapest; one in Kiev; one in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan - mere klicks from the Iran border. And then one in Virginia, along the Potomac River, practically in the shadow of CIA headquarters. Castillo suspects it's only a matter of time before the commander in chief assigns him and his group of troubleshooters to look into the deaths while the intel agencies fight among themselves trying to put the pieces together. Meanwhile, Castillo has problems of his own - fallout from recent missions involving a clandestine rescue of a DEA agent from South American drug runners, and the confiscation of some fifty million dollars from thieves in the Iraqi oil-for-food scandal. He's made more than a few enemies, he knows. And then comes another back-channel message. All that has happened so far, it says, is just a warm-up for what's about to come out of the Kremlin.

Stuck

by Anneli Rufus

"The brilliant mind behind Party of One examines the striking social trend: people are stuck and they want to change, but. . . " (San Francisco Chronicle) In this book, Anneli Rufus identifies an intriguing aspect of our culture: Many of us are stuck. Be it in the wrong relationship, career, or town, or just with bad habits we can't seem to quit, we even say we want to make a change, but . . . Merging interviews, personal anecdotes, and cultural criticism, Stuck is a wise and passionate exploration of the dreams we hold dearest for ourselves-and the road to actually achieving them. When faced with the possibility of change, our minds can play tricks on us. We tell ourselves: I can't make it. Or, It's not worth the effort. How is it that in a time of unprecedented freedom and opportunity, so many of us feel utterly powerless and unsure? In this book, Rufus exposes a complex network of causes for our immobilization- from fear and denial to powerful messages in popular culture or mass media that conspire to convince us that we're helpless in the face of our cravings. But there can be a light at the end of the tunnel: Rufus also tells the stories of people who have managed to become unstuck and of others who, after much reflection, have decided that where they are is best. After all, she writes, "what looks to you like a rut, others might say is true absorption in a topic, a relation­ship, a career, a pursuit, a place. What looks to you like bore­dom, others call commitment. And even contentment. " A brilliant glimpse into what truly motivates-or doesn't motivate-us, Stuck will inspire you to take a look at yourself in an entirely new light. .

Emotional Bullshit

by Alasko Carl Paul

An invisible disease is affecting every aspect of your life. Insidious and creeping, it shapes you everyday - from the bedroom to the boardroom, from your shopping splurge, to the extra helping at your holiday dinner, to the dangerous liaison at work. It's called emotional bullshit, and it's encroaching on your happiness. In Emotional Bullshit: The Hidden Plague That Is Threatening to Destroy Your Relationships - AND HOW TO STOP IT , Carl Alasko, Ph. D. sheds light on the stealth disease of Emotional BS: that is, the Toxic Trio of denial, delusion and blame that we fall back on when faced with difficult situations. These three dynamics work together to distort and manipulate truth, create a delusional reality, and shift blame when things fall apart. With the toxic trio in action, it's all but impossible to get at the heart of the problem. The result, however, is obvious - no one can achieve happiness and fulfillment. And when used in the world of business, Emotional BS can lead to financial ruin. In his over twenty years working with individuals, couples and families as a psychotherapist, Dr. Alasko has come to recognize the same problem underlying all his patients' unhappiness. When confronted with an unpleasant or inconvenient reality, they fall prey to the TOXIC TRIO: DENIAL: "My girlfriend enjoys a 'good time' at parties, sure. But she doesn't have a drinking problem. " Decoded: There is no problem. Everything is okay. You're exaggerating See: the drinker, the overweight, the wallet full of maxed-out credit cards (pg 12) DELUSION: "Working late isn't a problem. My family will understand when I get that big promotion. " Decoded: I'll tell you what's true. Don't believe what you see - believe me. See: the demanding boss, the neglected partner, the alienated friend (pgs 63, 138) BLAME: "She knew I hated sloppiness when she married me. Why can't she pick up after herself?" Decoded: You're the problem. I was forced to do it; I had no choice. See: the clean freak, sub-prime mortgages, Napoleon Bonaparte (pgs 45, 84) When the Toxic Trio works together, we become stuck in a cycle of emotional BS, preventing us from moving on or learning from our mistakes. Emotional bullshit's pervasiveness in society can be found everywhere, from rising divorce rates, weight gain, and debt, to angry outbursts at work, loss of control over our children, and a lack of fulfillment in our lives. The solution is deceptively simple: You focus on your Core Needs, which is any behavior that advances your long-term best interest, and ask yourself the Master Question--"What do I need from this situation?". Honestly addressing the larger issue - not just in the short term - cuts the BS in every relationship: between friends, co-workers, couples, in parenting and especially in business. Frank, concise and unapologetic, EMOTIONAL BULLSHIT sheds light on this hidden plague, and provides concrete advice to keep it from infiltrating your relationships. .

The Joy of Appreciative Living

by Jacqueline Kelm

Based on a national "joy study," here is a workshop leader's 28-day blueprint to greater happiness broken down into three remarkable steps. Is it possible to study what creates joy in our lives-and to break down the results into a believable, achievable program for inner fulfillment? Mechanical engineer, corporate manager, and motivational coach Jacqueline Kelm discovered that the answer is yes-and she shares her results in The Joy of Appreciative Living. One day while preparing for a speech before a local spiritual community, Kelm experienced a breakthrough. She found a simple way of integrating all the principles of positive-thinking philosophies into three basic exercises. These three steps to lasting, meaningful joy require less than five minutes a day, plus fifteen minutes on the weekends. Her workshop audiences were astounded. Realizing that she was onto something, Kelm designed a study to see how these exercises would work for different kinds of people. Using a cross section of adults around the United States, Kelm's "joy study" showed that after twenty-eight days, 97 percent of participants assessed themselves to be significantly happier. Even more remarkable, participants in the study continued to feel happier even six months afterward. Just three exercises in twenty-eight days? It sounds so simple because author Jacqueline Kelm makes it simple. The book will highlight exactly how and why these exercises work. The Joy of Appreciative Living transforms complexity, insight, and years of trial into one focused, high-powered program of daily practice that can make all the difference in your world.

Quick Draw

by Christopher D. Scott Shu Ejima

Storytelling is at its apex although the story itself begins with a rather mediocre murder. The background scenery takes place from the Californian West Coast to the deep, forgotten land of Mojave Desert. The author sets readers' eye on a LAPD detective, investigating a family massacre in Los Angeles. Actions, explosions and scorching grounds, thugs and rogues standing with full intention to kill the opponent, the bloody vengeance of a swordsman with a dark past....this novel reaches a height of "a hard-boiled crime action" with great surprising conclusion with contemporary touch of "urban mythos". Once you start turning pages, there is no turning back. Quick Draw's venom will taint you with an uncontrollable addiction to read on.
