    In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be “positive” all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. “F*ck positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f*cked and we have to live with it.” In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—“not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault.” Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. There are only so many things we can give a f*ck about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

    A renowned psychologist and expert on human behavior presents Emotional Agility—a proven approach to unhook from negative feelings and behaviors so you can lead a healthier, more fulfilling life. Whether it’s getting ahead at work, becoming a more patient parent or partner, or losing that pesky ten pounds, we all have things we want to achieve in life. And yet, despite our good intentions, we often get tripped up by self-defeating habits and emotions. Why do some people succeed in reaching their loftiest goals while the rest stumble? In Emotional Agility, Susan David provides the revolutionary answer to this question. Challenging the popular belief that positive thinking is the key to fulfillment, she explains that negative thoughts and feelings are normal. Negativity doesn’t derail emotionally agile people. Instead, they know how to unhook from, accept, and harness these experiences so they can focus on what really matters. Drawing on more than twenty years of research and the latest insights from behavioral science, David shows that being emotionally agile is not about suppressing negative emotions or fixing “bad” behavior; instead, it’s about facing our inner selves with courage and compassion, identifying and acting on our values, and remaining curious and engaged with the world around us. Written with wit and empathy, Emotional Agility is a groundbreaking guide that proves we don’t need to be perfect to reach our full potential.

    Born without legs, she inspires others to overcome. Jen Bricker was born without legs. Shocked and uncertain they could care for her, her biological parents gave her up for adoption. In her loving adoptive home, there was just one simple rule: never say “can’t.” And pretty soon, there was nothing this small but mighty powerhouse set her sights on that she couldn’t conquer: roller-skating, volleyball, power tumbling, and spinning from silk ribbons thirty feet in the air. Everything Is Possible is her incredible story—a story of God working out his plan for her life from before day one. Listeners follow Jen from the challenges of growing up different to holding captive audiences numbering in the tens of thousands.

    Over the decades the reputation of the samurai has grown to mythical proportions, owing to such films as Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai and Yojimbo as well as works such as James Clavell’s epic Shogun. In Legends of the Samurai, Hiroaki Sato confronts both the history and the legend of the samurai, untangling the two to present an authentic picture of these legendary warriors. Through his masterful translations of original samurai tales, laws, dicta, reports, and arguments accompanied by insightful commentary, Sato chronicles the changing ethos of the Japanese warrior from the samurai’s historical origins to his rise to political power. A fascinating look at Japanese history as seen through the evolution of the samurai, Legends of the Samurai stands as the ultimate authority on its subject.

    All of us worry about something, big or small, every day. But much of the emotional misery we feel is an overreaction, and it can be significantly reduced, using the techniques you’ll find in this landmark book. World renowned therapist Dr. Albert Ellis, who created Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), believed that anger, anxiety, and depression are not only unnecessary, they’re unethical, because when we allow ourselves to become emotionally upset, we’re being unfair and unjust to ourselves. Thinking negative thoughts is a choice we can refuse to make. Applying the proven, time-tested principles of REBT is a simple, logical way to find true mental health and happiness. REBT acknowledges the power of emotions, but it also helps us understand which feelings are healthy and which are not. This classic book teaches you how to: *Retrain your brain to focus on the positive aspects of your life and face each obstacle without unnecessary despair *Control your emotional destiny *Refuse to upset yourself about upsetting yourself *Solve practical problems as well as emotional problems *Conquer the tyranny of “shoulds” …and much more, providing all the tools you need to take back your life—and your happiness. If you can refuse to make yourself miserable, you’re that much closer to making yourself happy—every day.

    A New York Times business journalist explains why it’s important for people to pursue big creative projects and identifies both the obstacles and the productive habits that emerge on the path to completion. Whether it’s the Great American Novel or a groundbreaking new app, many people want to create a big thing, but finding the motivation to get started, let alone complete the work, can be daunting. In The Big Thing, New York Times business writer and editor Phyllis Korkki combines real life stories, science, and insights from her own experience to illuminate the factors that drive people to complete big creative projects—and the obstacles that threaten to derail success. In the course of creating her own big thing—this book—Korkki explores the individual and collaborative projects of others: from memoirs, art installations, and musical works to theater productions, small businesses, and charities. She identifies the main aspects of a big thing, including meaningful goals; focus and effort; the difficulties posed by the demands of everyday life; and the high risk of failure and disappointment. Korkki also breaks down components of the creative process and the characteristics that define it, and offers her thoughts on avoiding procrastination, on staying motivated, scheduling a routine, and overcoming self-doubt and the restrictions of a day job. Filled with inspiring stories, practical advice, and a refreshing dose of honesty, The Big Thing doesn’t minimize the negative side of such pursuits—including the fact that big projects are hard to complete and raise difficult questions about one’s self-worth. Wise, humorous, and good-natured, The Big Thing is a meditation on the importance of self-expression and purpose.

    How Could You Do That?! illustrates Dr. Laura Schlessinger's philosophy of personal responsibility through her usually provocative but always stimulating moral dialogues with callers about everyday ethical dilemmas. In her lively pull-no-punches style, Dr. Laura takes on the moral dilemmas of our time: from the mindless pursuit of pleasure and immediate gratification to taking the easy way out when those actions produce ugly or uncomfortable life-altering consequences. She demonstrates in no uncertain terms that personal values are never someone else's responsibility but your own, and why choosing not to honor them actually compounds unhappiness. Finally, she explains that by disciplining self-indulgence and rising above temptation we can discover the infinite pleasures, the true happiness, of the moral high ground. Dr. Laura delivers not only a compelling argument for an ethical approach to life but also an invaluable inspiration to rebuilding character, conscience, and courage. Here is a work that can make a genuine difference in the quality of your own life and the lives of those we love.

    Oncologist and cancer gene hunter Theo Ross delivers the first authoritative go-to for people facing a genetic predisposition for cancer. There are 13 million people with cancer in the United States, and it’s estimated that about 1.3 million of these cases are hereditary. Yet despite advanced training in cancer genetics and years of practicing medicine, Dr. Theo Ross was never certain whether the history of cancers in her family was simple bad luck or a sign that they were carriers of a cancer-causing genetic mutation. Then she was diagnosed with melanoma, and for someone with a dark complexion, melanoma made no sense. It turned out there was a genetic factor at work. Using her own family’s story, the latest science of cancer genetics, and her experience as a practicing physician, Ross shows listeners how to spot the patterns of inherited cancer, how to get tested for cancer-causing genes, and what to do if you have one. With a foreword by Siddartha Mukherjee, prize-winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies, this will be the first authoritative go-to for people facing inherited cancer. This book empowers listeners to face their genetic heritage without fear and to make decisions that will keep them and their families healthy.

    Just as there are three dimensions of the physical world (height, width and depth), there are three dimensions of the interpersonal world-power, love, and mindfulness. How well we learn to navigate them directly corresponds to how well we live our lives, how happy and fulfilled we feel. Human reactivity is the source of most of our interpersonal problems and pain. The 3 Dimensions of Emotions introduces the concept of working the triangle, a unique practice that provides a compelling yet practical road map that can help you move from painful reactivity to productive proactivity in your relationships. And it works just as successfully for a CEO of a Fortune 500 company as it does for a parent struggling to communicate with a teenager. The 3 Dimensions of Emotions is a new way to understand emotional intelligence and find your relational “sweet spot” which is the dynamic intersection of power, love, and mindfulness. It will also help you to: Manage difficult people in your life.Improve your emotional intelligence as a partner, parent, and friend.Improve your emotional intelligence as a leader at work.

    This is one of Dr. Murphy’s best books, on a par with his classic Power of Your Subconscious Mind. It explains the difference between the conscious and subconscious mind and how the two work together to create the reality of the individual. As in Murphy’s other books, examples are given of how people overcame problems or manifested their desires by changing their minds through belief, affirmation, and visualization. The chapters deal with healing, prayer, becoming spiritually minded, the creativity of thought, the meaning of evil, the meaning of life, controlling one’s fears, the power of suggestion and marriage, sex and divorce. In his engaging style, the author teaches us how to use both phases of the mind synchronously, harmoniously, and peacefully in order to bring harmony, health and abundance into our lives. He also explains that Biblical statements are parables, allegories, metaphors, similes, and cryptic statements, and are thus not to be taken literally. The main message is that we are all children of the infinite, born to win, and to live in the joyous expectancy of the best.
