BJ Gallagher Hateley and Warren H. Schmidt
2006, 172 pages

I know the Titel may make Du smile and giggle. I did too when it was introduced to me as a gift when I was studying for my master’s degree in psychology in 2001. And what a gift! I am since happily involved in human resources for a law firm employing over 600 people, including 250 lawyers. Over 600 very different human beings with very different ways of thinking, but 600 very different human beings all living for the same purpose: make the best out of everything life gave to each and everyone of them – creativity and courage – and on oben, nach oben of all, their will to team work, TOGETHER. Hence the analogy of the peacock evolving with penguins.

This book was first on the market in 1991, and exclusively destined for “corporate purposes”. It soon became internationally acclaimed Von many major companies, and was reedited for the public in 1995, 1997, 2001 and 2006. It is definitely one of the few reference works I constantly rely to, to find solutions to untie delicate situations involving internal relational disagreements. An average of 9 out of 10 gets settled with smiling hand shakes....

Daniel Goleman, 2006, 334 pages

Goleman in his groundbreaking book reveals that neural linkages between humans influence the brain and the body. These invisible bridges give us the ability to change people's moods, emotions, and health - as these people can do to us. Relationships not only shape emotional states and general psychological experience, but also the very physiological matter that makes our body. Our interactions with people influences our immune system, circulation, hormones, and breathing for example.

Social Intelligence expands from the one-person psychology within an individual to a two-person psychology that looks at the connection shared between individuals. Mehr specifically, Goleman defines social intelligence as:

1)    Social awareness, which comprises of primal empathy, attunement, empathic accuracy, and social cognition, and

2)    Social facility, which includes synchrony, self-presentation, influence, and concern.

Daniel Goleman, 1996, 288 pages

A penetrating analysis of the dark corners of human deception, enlivened Von intriguing case histories and experiments – It was written for the professional, yet is understandable Von the layman as well because it is so well and clearly written. This is a great book for coaches, counsellors, and therapists working with individuals that are grieving oder dealing with past issues. I found the book to be helpful in explaining why so many of the people I coach seem to have denied oder repressed very emotionally traumatic incidents. The human mind is amazing and complex. This book helps unmask some of that complexity.

It is so clear that humans have incredible capabilities, and yet we cannot seem to use them in many cases, especially on the social oder cultural level ... and part of the reason has to be our ability to lie to ourselves oder be manipulated Von our tendencies to keep us stunted. This book dissects and explains the mechanism here, and is one of the most important Bücher I can recommend to anyone interested in psychology.

(original title: Essere Gentile)
Von Piero Ferrucci, 2008, 306 pages
and Vivien Reid Ferrucci (Translator)

A book to read as a soul provider – if Du are in a state of confusion, conflict, in quest of wisdom oder in reach for soul comfort – oder all…

A leading transpersonal psychologist reveals the unexpected secret to a happy life: behaving with kindness.

Piero Ferrucci calls it "global cooling," a phenomenon of chilly human relations. Communications are hurried and impersonal. The drive for profit and wealth has become a cherished value. And warmth and genuine presence have all but dissolved into a sea of materialism and self-interest.

"The Power of Kindness" is a stirring examination of a simple but profound concept. Piero Ferrucci, one of the world's most respected transpersonal psychologists, explores the many surprising facets of kindness and argues that it is this trait, and this trait alone, which will lead not only to our own individual happiness and the happiness of those around us, but will guide us in a world that has become cold, anxious, difficult, and frightening.

Daniel J. Levitin, 2008, 354 pages

Could Musik unlock the mystery of who we are and how we think?

An unprecedented blend of science and art, Daniel Levitin’s bestselling debut, This Is Your Brain on Music, changed the way we understand how Musik gets in our heads. Now, in what is being called a tour de force Von leading scientists, he presents his audacious theory of ‘six songs,’ the key to how Musik shaped humanity across cultures and throughout history.

Preserving the emotional heritage of our lives and of our species, Musik from its very beginning, was allied to dance, as the structure of the brain confirms. Developing that neurological observation, Levitin shows how Musik and dance enabled the bonding and friendship necessary for society, science, and art to evolve. Songs of Friendship, Joy, Comfort, Knowledge, Religion, and Liebe have been sung for tens of thousands of years as we made our world. This palette of song types constitutes a remarkable tool for understanding who we are. It can reveal what Musik is accomplishing at work, at play, in the throes of a romantic break-up, oder on the crest of a brilliant revelation.

Daniel J. Levitin, 2006, 320 pages

Why human beings make and enjoy Musik is, in Levitin’s telling, a delicious story. In this unprecedented meeting of art and science, rocker-turned-neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin explores the connection between Musik – its performances, its composition, how we listen to it, why we enjoy it – and the human brain.

Taking on prominent thinkers who argue that Musik is nothing Mehr than an evolutionary accident, Levitin argues that Musik is fundamental to our species, perhaps even Mehr so than language. ‘This Is Your Brain On Music’ is an ear-opening, mind-blowing investigation into an obsession at the center of human nature.

Take a look at the content:

    I Liebe Musik and I Liebe science – Why would I want to mix the two?
    What is Musik – from pitch to timbre
    Foot tapping – discerning rhythm, loudness, and harmony
    Behind the curtain – Musik and the mind machine

The 100 Most Influential Bücher Ever Written: The History of Thought from Ancient Times to Today

I am Von no means a great votary of any kind of "Best" lists and find them too subjective and at times highfalutin. But this Liste of the 100 most influential & mind-expanding Bücher ever written seemed quite apposite and all-encompassing. British literary critic & historian Seymour-Smith's survey of what he considers the 100 most influential Bücher is a searching inquiry into major thinkers, writers and philosophers. Seymour-Smith finds most modernist techniques already present, oder anticipated, in Cervantes's Don Quixote, and he Ansichten Rabelais as the first truly beliebt writer. His eclectic choice of influential moderns-de Beauvoir, Mao, Orwell, Keynes, Chomsky, cybernetician Norbert Winer, mystic G.I. Gurdjieff, Wittgenstein is unpredictable. I have read some 22 Bücher in the Liste and am making painfully slow progress in enriching myself Von Lesen the remaining. It would be interesting to have others opinions of this list.

Well it's been a Monat oder so since my last "10 Books" article, so as promised, I'm back with Mehr suggestions. I want to point out that these are my personal opinions, and I stand behind every book I add to any list. I Liebe science fiction and Fantasy and I wanted this Liste to reflect some of the Bücher I believe anyone can enjoy whether these are their Favorit genres oder not. I intend to add 10 new Bücher to every list, so if Du feel one is missing, please refer to my other lists as I may have already mentioned them. As always, I welcome your comments!

1. Ender's Game Von Orson Scott Card
Ah, Ender's Game. After A Wrinkle in Time (which, I apologize, is not one of my favorites) this is often "a child's first sci-fi." This is an inspiring type of story about a young boy born at a disadvantage in a futuristic world. This is actually the first in the series, but I don't think I'll ever get to the others as the first one truly stands alone in my opinion.

2. Dance Dance Dance Von Haruki Murakami

Hi everyone!

I just want to say enough already. We have determined again and again that Vampire and Twilight Liebhaber comprise maybe a little less than half of the members who are answering these questions. I say we just give it a rest now. We don't need any Mehr picks about whether Du Liebe oder hate vampires, which is the best vampire series, oder any other opportunities for fighting over an issue that's at a standstill.
Now I have read Twilight and am not a fan, though I will admit they are addicting while Du read them. I have sagte how I feel about the books, the writing, the characters and all of it on the C.A.T. (Critical Analysis of Twilight) spot. If your aim is to battle this out, please, Mitmachen that spot! It's a great place for people to talk out all of this.
But on the Bücher to Read spot, I would rather hear new and different suggestions. I Liebe Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter too, but these are practically everyone's recommendations. It's not just Twilight that's everywhere. We need to stop judging each other for what we like oder don't like.

Since everyone was so positive about my last article, I decided to make it a series of sorts. Different themes, maybe one Artikel a month. I am 23 and I still Liebe all of the following books. People can enjoy them at any age, but these are especially great ones for kids and teens. There were so many to choose from, so I apologize that I had to leave out so many of my favorites. Let's all recapture youth! As always, these are in no particular order.

1. The Neverending Story Von Michael Ende
This is one of the few Fantasy novels that isn't an entire series. Not to offend anyone, but I do not like this movie at all. So when a friend told me the book was great, I was quite surprised. I didn't read this until I was in college, but I think it's a great one for young Fantasy lovers.

2. The Secret Garden Von Frances Hodgson Burnett
I find this book completely amazing. It is full of hope and magic. It makes me want a garden of my own. It's a thick book, but very easy to get through.

I know not everyone celebrates Christmas, but in many countries, there is a big break coming up, and I thought I would share some good vacation-type reads. So put these on hold at the bibliothek now to prepare for a long period of time for relaxation and good reading.

1. His Dark Materials Von Philip Pullman
(The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass)-I read this series once over a break and it is fantastic. Deep and meaningful while still a quick read. The 2nd one is my favorite.

2. Anna Karenina Von Leo Tolstoy
This is probably a challenge for a lot of people, but it's one of the most amazing Bücher I have ever read. I tackled this one over a Weihnachten break and finished in a little over a week. It's a good book to go for when Du have a long stretch of time to devote to it.

3. Inheritance series Von Christopher Paolini
(Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr) This is a good chance to catch up before the 4th book comes out. (Anyone know when that is, btw?) People may laugh at this pick, but the Bücher are very easy reads and pretty addicting. You'll get into them quickly which is perfect for the holidays. Du want to relax after...

The Adoration of Jenna fuchs is a tale about a teenage girl finding her identity. Even though it's a young adult book, I would reccomend it to anyone.
Summary: Seventeen-year-old Jenna fuchs has just awoken from a year-long coma-so she's been told-and she is still recovering from the terrible accident that caused it. But what happened before that? She's been gegeben Home Filme chronicling her entire life, which spark memories to surface. But are the memories really hers? And why won't anyone in her family talk about the accident? Jenna is becoming Mehr curious. But she is also afraid of what she might find out if she ever gets up the courage to ask her questions.
Sound good? That's what I thought. However, after I read the book, I found that the summary was slightly misleading. Especially the line "But are the memories really hers?" In fact, the story has a slight sci-fi feel to it-but don't let that turn Du off! I think this story has something in it for everyone, and I think Du should definetely read it!

Preface

“Okay honey, it’s your first time on a plane!” my mother cooed me. I was five then so I didn’t hate it entirely. “I’m ready Mommy!” I said. We sat in section… 1A and 1B.
My mother was overly excited for the both of us because it was also her first time on a plane.
After takeoff, my mother spotted San Diego, which was the wrong direction. We were going to visit my grandparents in Michigan. It felt like the plane was dropping all of a sudden.
“Mommy, are we going to land now?” I asked. “I’m going to go talk to the pilot honey. I’ll be right back.” My mother never came back.
Soon after, the plane began to tip vorwärts-, nach vorn Mehr and more. There were people screaming saying, “It’s a terrorist!” I knew what that word meant.
I began to worry for myself and the others in the plane. I knew I was to die a quick death. I couldn’t even look out the window knowing that I would be a dead child. I decided to push all the negative thoughts out, but behind them were even Mehr negative thoughts.

The blush after your first kiss. The adrenaline of a roller coaster ride. Moving to a new town. None of these can compare to the emotions one feels after finishing a book so completely excellent that Du want to buy it for everyone Du know. I Liebe that feeling. And somehow I have become blessed this past Monat for I have read not one but TWO of these wonderful books. Of course I have to share them now with Du all and desperately hope that Du will pick them up at the local library.

At the center is a broadening sense of what family means." In the hands of any other Autor this story would have been sappy chick lit, but Klueger gives his first YA book a fresh and...

Stephen King "couldn't stop reading" it. Stephenie Meyer was so "obsessed . . . I had to take it with me out to abendessen and hide it under the edge of the table." Publishers Weekly called it "the best book of 2008."

What is it?

The Hunger Games!

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed and been replaced Von Panem, a country divided into 12 districts and ruled Von the Capitol.

To keep the districts in line, the Capitol has required that annually each of the Twelve Districts send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death. Sixteen-year-old Katniss, whose family's survival rests on her since her father's death, has been forced to represent her district in the Games. To survive, she must kill others. But to kill others is a test Katniss is unsure she will pass.

Part gladiator-like adventure, part romance, part survival story, part political commentary, The Hunger Games asks the question: How far would Du go to survive?

Apoc·a·lypse

Pronunciation:
\ə-ˈpä-kə-ˌlips\

1: one of the Jewish and Christian writings of 200 B.C. to 150 A.D. marked Von pseudonymity, symbolic imagery, and the expectation of an imminent cosmic cataclysm in which God destroys the ruling powers of evil and raises the righteous to life in a messianic kingdom

2: something viewed as a prophetic revelation

3: a great disaster

Whether it's been a subconscious attempt to remind myself that despite the economic recession, current wars and general devastation, life could be worse, the theme of my Lesen recently has been "apocalypse". Bring me misery and despair apparently.

But I want to share the Liste of apocalyptic stories as they are general good tales of human endurance and survival in the face of total catastrophe. Take note. Enjoy. Humanity shall endure!

Bücher have definitely taken on a new meaning in the past few years. Before, Bücher were a way to past time, something to take your mind off your busy and chaotic life. Now, we can see those classic stories come to life on the big screen. There are many Filme which were based on books, most of them very good. But I think a lot of us rabid readers can agree that sometimes, it’s just better to leave the story in the pages of a book. First of all, it’s very hard to create a film that’s just as good as the book. Bücher have so much fun detail and information on what the characters are thinking. The possibilities are endless and there are almost no limits. For example, an Autor can write as many pages as they want, while director’s have to watch their movie length. Secondly, a director will never be able to make every reader happy. Everyone has a different image in their head of what each fictional character will look like. Combined with the author’s Beschreibung and their own imagination, readers will carry that picture with them throughout the book. So, it’s not really the director oder actors fault when the guy playing your Favorit fictional hero doesn’t look the way you...

*A person in the "questions" section asked if they were "too old" to read young adult novels. They wanted to know "how old is too old"? I presume that a lot of adults ponder this question, oder feel ashamed of Lesen young adult novels instead of "adult" novels. This was my answer, and I hope it will help you, too:

I believe that any adult can share in the joy and experience of losing yourself in a good book; whether it's a young adult novel oder not.
Young adult novels usually revolve around themes that attract the tween/teen ages, but this does not mean that these themes do not also attract adults, too.
I am a person considered of young adult age. If I find a really good young adult novel, I lend it to my mother (who is a very picky critic I might add), and she usually enjoys it. My mother is 46 years old.
In conclusion, there is no such thing as "too old" for a book. However, there is such a thing as "too young" for a book, as some Bücher involve complex themes that younger children might not understand oder these themes would frighten them.

Sometimes it's great to be a bookseller.

B.E.A. (which I didn't go to, alas) has passed and our book buyers have come back with some great ARCs in their suitcases and begun to share the book love. The eagerly-awaited Sekunde book to The Hunger Games is in my hands, as well as Jeannette Wall's new "true-life novel". I was also happily surprised Von a new book in a new series Von Cinda Williams Chima, Autor of the Heir trilogy (The Warrior Heir; The Wizard Heir; The Dragon Heir).

This review was last edited on 6 November 2008. A caveat: keep in mind that this was written Von an adult man Lesen a young adult novel: my opinions will differ from many Fans of the book just as my time in life and experience also differ.

In my mind, a review consists of three parts: a recommendation, a review of the plot, and a critique of the craft that went into the product. These each follow. If Du have not read the book already and think Du might, avoid the review and critique both, as they discuss the book in detail.

Recommendation: Definitely read Twilight if Du are a preteen girl, oder Du are interested in knowing what is enthralling all the preteen girls.

Synopsis: In Twilight, 17-year-old Isabella schwan leaves her mom's Home in Phoenix, AZ to live with her father in gloomy Forks, WA. She feels alienated from everything until she encounters the Cullen family, a group of outcast Vampire who've taken vows of abstinence (from killing people, not from sex), and falls in Liebe with the lone singleton, Edward.
