At times in our careers, we've all been aware of a "gut feeling" guiding our decisions. Too often, we dismiss these feelings as "hunches" and therefore untrustworthy. But renowned researcher Gary Klein reveals that, in fact, 90 percent of the critical decisions we make is based on our intuition. In his new book,THE POWER OF INTUITION, Klein shows that intuition, far from being an innate "sixth sense," is a learnable--and essential--skill. Based on interviews with senior executives who make important judgments swiftly, as well as firefighters, emergency medical staff, soldiers, and others who often face decisions with immediate life-and-death implications, Klein demonstrates that the expertise to recognize patterns and other cues that enable us--intuitively--to make the right decisions--is a natural extension of experience. Through a three-tiered process called the "Exceleration Program," Klein provides readers with the tools they need to build the intuitive skills that will help them make tough choices, spot potential problems, manage uncertainty, and size up situations quickly. Klein also shows how to communicate such decisions more effectively, coach others in the art of intuition, and recognize and defend against an overdependence on information technology. The first book to demystify the role of intuition in decision making,THE POWER OF INTUITIONis essential reading for those who wish to develop their intuition skills, wherever they are in the organizational hierarchy.
Why do bad things happen to me? Why can't I find a soul mate, lose weight, get a better job, be happy? Is it my karma? Karma is the universal law of cause and effect. Simply: What goes around comes around; you reap what you sow; you get what you deserve; if you give love you get love; revenge returns itself on the avenger. Literally, karma means action: good action equals good karma; bad action equals bad karma. Many believe that they are powerless to change their karma. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Now with stunning insight, wit, and practical wisdom, renowned psychic, visionary, and noted author Mary T. Browne untangles the web of confusion surrounding karma, its inextricable link to reincarnation, and the question of free will versus destiny -- and shows us how to use our karma to understand our past and shape our future. Knowledge is power, history is the record of human struggle, and history does not have to repeat itself once karma is understood and integrated into every thought, word, and action in our lives. In The Power of Karma, Mary T. Browne provides indispensable tips, usable tools, easy-to-follow spiritual exercises, and powerful affirmations designed to help us achieve the goal of a life enhanced by greater health, love, security, and balance. How many incarnations does it take to achieve self-mastery? What is the "karmic boomerang" -- and how does one recognize and avoid it? Can I discover the secrets of my past life by examining my present one? How do I differentiate bad karma from bad judgment? Drawing on dozens of fascinating case histories of her own clients, the author addresses -- and answers -- these intriguing questions and many more. Even as we face difficult times and know we will face far more arduous ones in the future, the opportunity for spiritual growth -- and real change -- is enormous. Let Mary T. Browne be your expert guide. The Power of Karma will lead you every step of the way as you shape your life for the better.
while providing important indicators for the future of our world.

Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval have moved to the top of the advertising industry by following a simple but powerful philosophy: it pays to be nice. Where some many companies encourage a dog-eat-dog mentality, The Kaplan Thaler Group has succeeded through chocolate and flowers. In The Power of Nice, through their own experiences and the stories of other people and businesses, they demonstrate why, contrary to conventional wisdom, nice people finish first.

Kaplan Thaler and Koval illustrate the surprising power of nice with an array of real-life examples from the business arena as well as from their personal lives. Most important, they present a plan of action covering everything from creating a positive impression to sweetening the pot to turning enemies to allies.

The Power of Purposebegins with a simple but remarkable statement: "The more you focus on helping others, the more you will succeed in reaching your own goals. " Peter S. Temes builds on this fundamental insight to share a simple plan for living with the truest and most enduring kind of happiness. At the heart ofThe Power of Purposeare the "three levels of thinking. " At the first level, we ask, Who am I? and What do I want? At the second level, we ask, Who do other people think I am? How do I look to them? But the real magic happens when we hit the third level, forgetting about ourselves and asking the questions that lend a powerful sense of purpose to our lives: How do others look to themselves? How can I help others become the people they want to be? To help us along the way, Temes, who teaches humanities at Columbia University, draws on the wisdom of great thinkers including Aristotle, Søren Kierkegaard, and Abraham Lincoln; the life lessons of great achievers ranging from Mother Teresa to Michael Jordan; and home truths he's gathered from his parents, his grandparents, and his three children. From all these sources and from his own life of great personal accomplishment, Temes identifies the essential knowledge that brings people happiness and success. He cites Aristotle's notion that happiness is not a psychological state but a moral one, resulting from doing good in the world. Temes also believes in the pivotal importance of trust and team-building in every area of life, from the family to the workplace to the street corner. The Power of Purposeis a map for finding the confidence and power, the opportunities and occasions, and--most important--the techniques and strategies for centering your relationships and work on helping others. It is a book with a point of view: the clearest path to your own success and happiness lies in helping others get to where they want to go. From the Hardcover edition.

The Power of Religion in the Public Sphere represents a rare opportunity to experience a diverse group of preeminent philosophers confronting one pervasive contemporary concern: what role does--or should--religion play in our public lives? Reflecting on her recent work concerning state violence in Israel-Palestine, Judith Butler explores the potential of religious perspectives for renewing cultural and political criticism, while Jürgen Habermas, best known for his seminal conception of the public sphere, thinks through the ambiguous legacy of the concept of "the political" in contemporary theory. Charles Taylor argues for a radical redefinition of secularism, and Cornel West defends civil disobedience and emancipatory theology. Eduardo Mendieta and Jonathan VanAntwerpen detail the immense contribution of these philosophers to contemporary social and political theory, and an afterword by Craig Calhoun places these attempts to reconceive the significance of both religion and the secular in the context of contemporary national and international politics.
