Based on a reading of more than three hundred self-help books, Sandra K. Dolby examines this remarkably popular genre to define "self-help" in a way that's compelling to academics and lay readers alike. Self-Help Books also offers an interpretation of why these books are so popular, arguing that they continue the well-established American penchant for self-education, they articulate problems of daily life and their supposed solutions, and that they present their content in a form and style that is accessible rather than arcane. Using tools associated with folklore studies, Dolby then examines how the genre makes use of stories, aphorisms, and a worldview that is at once traditional and contemporary. The overarching premise of the study is that self-help books, much like fairy tales, take traditional materials, especially stories and ideas, and recast them into extended essays that people happily read, think about, try to apply, and then set aside when a new embodiment of the genre comes along. Sandra K. Dolby, professor of folklore and American studies at Indiana University, is the author of Literary Folkloristics and the Personal Narrative.* A timely analysis aimed at understanding instead of lamenting the popularity of self-help books

Purpose Driven Life ZONDERVAN PUBLISHING HOUSE

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

You are not an accident. Even before the universe was created, God had you in mind, and he planned you for his purposes. These purposes will extend far beyond the few years you will spend on earth. You were made to last forever! Self-help books often suggest that you try to discover the meaning and purpose of your life by looking within yourself, but Rick Warren says that is the wrong place to start. You must begin with God, your Creator, and his reasons for creating you. You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. This book will help you understand why you are alive and God's amazing plan for you - both here and now, and for eternity. Rick Warren will guide you through a personal 40-day spiritual journey that will transform your answer to life's most important question: What on earth am I here for? Knowing God's purpose for creating you will reduce your stress, focus your energy, simplify your decisions, give meaning to your life, and, most importantly, prepare you for eternity. The Purpose Driven Life is a blueprint for Christian living in the 21st century - a lifestyle based on God's eternal purposes, not cultural values. Using over 1,200 scriptural quotes and references, it challenges the conventional definitions of worship, fellowship, disciple.

Mad as Hell TIMES BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Those words, spoken by an unhinged anchorman named Howard Beale, "the mad prophet of the airwaves," took America by storm in 1976, when Network became a sensation. With a superb cast (including Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Peter Finch, and Robert Duvall) directed by Sidney Lumet, the film won four Academy Awards and indelibly shaped how we think about corporate and media power. In Mad As Hell, Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times recounts the surprising and dramatic story of how Network made it to the screen. Such a movie rarely gets made any more - one man's vision of the world, independent of studio testing or market research. And that man was Paddy Chayefsky, the tough, driven, Oscar-winning screenwriter whose vision - outlandish for its time - is all too real today. Itzkoff uses interviews with the cast and crew, as well as Chayefsky's notes, letters, and drafts to re-create the action in front of and behind the camera at a time of swirling cultural turmoil. The result is a riveting account that enriches our appreciation of this prophetic and still-startling film. Itzkoff also speaks with today's leading broadcasters and filmmakers to assess Network's lasting impact on television and popular culture. They testify to the enduring genius of Paddy Chayefsky, who foresaw the future and whose life offers an unforgettable lesson about the true cost of self-expression.

Psycho-Cybernetics and Self-Fulfillment WWW.Snowballpublishing.com

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Maxwell Maltz was an American cosmetic surgeon and author of Psycho-Cybernetics, which was a system of ideas that he claimed could improve one's self-image. In turn, the person would lead a more successful and fulfilling life. He wrote several books, among which Psycho-Cybernetics was a long-time bestseller - influencing many subsequent self-help teachers. His orientation towards a system of ideas that would provide self-help is considered the forerunner of the now popular self-help books. The word cybernetic comes from the Greek for 'steersman', and in the modern sense usually refers to systems of control and communication in machines and animals: how, for instance, a computer or a mouse organises itself to achieve a task. Maltz applied the science to man to form psycho-cybernetics. However, while inspired by the development of sophisticated machines, his book denounced the idea that man can be reduced to a machine. Psycho-cybernetics bridges the gap between our mechanistic models of the brain's functioning (cliches like 'Your brain is a wonderful computer'), and the knowledge of ourselves as being a lot more than machine. Maltz's genius was in saying that while we were 'machines', and while the dynamics of goal-setting and self-image might best be described in mechanistic terms, the fantastic variety of our desires and our ability to create new worlds were uniquely human. What could never be reduced to machine analogies were the fires of imagination, ambition and will. In this book "Psycho-Cybernetics and Self-Fulfillment", Dr. Maxwell Maltz teach about: Goals, Self Image, Happiness, and more...

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Self-Help / Personal Growth / Parenting Words can be deadly weapons or protective layers of love. They can bruise and batter a person, no matter how old, in the heart and spirit just like physical blows can cause damage to the outside of the body. Because these bruises to the spirit are not readily apparent, many think that the damage is easily repaired. However, while verbal abuse may be long forgotten or dismissed by the offender, the words and memory are lodged in the cells and memory of the child or person who was emotionally assaulted. The fear of rejection stops many very talented and skilled people from achieving their full potential in life. They become paralyzed by frustration, guilt and discouragement, hoping and praying that someone will have the key to open the potential that is being held captive in their mind. Building Self Confidence With Encouraging Words will unlock your potential and open the door of success, happiness and more nurturing relationships! You will learn: How to ask for what you want How your core belief system came to be Why self-confidence is a learned skill How to use positive self-talk Why positive action follows positive thought How to correct others in a supportive way Why communication is more than just words How to set boundaries and build respectful relationships How to appreciate and acknowledge success Grab a cup of tea and enjoy the next few minutes discovering ideas and tips that will bring an abundance of meaningful experiences and relationships into your life. Many of the suggestions and exercises are written for parents to use in building stronger relationships with their child. They have been tested in years of parent education. Parents and caring adults will make sacrifices of time, treasure, and talent to insure happiness and well being for children, but will not do the same for themselves! They will persevere in a course of action if they can see that the end result will be a stronger, more confident child. Sometimes they forget that the most effective teaching method is to model behavior. Do it for them and their future. Start your journey today Build your self-confidence and become all that you were meant to be! Author Judy H. Wright Judy is a parent educator, family coach, and personal historian who has written more than 20 books, hundreds of articles and speaks internationally on family issues, including end of life. She works with Head Start organizations and child care resource centers. The symbol of the artichoke has great meaning for Judy in her teaching and writing. As she works with families, she sees that frequently only the outer edges are exposed and they can be prickly and sometimes bitter to the taste. But, as you expose the artichoke and people to warmth, caring, and time, gradually the leaves begin to open and expose the real treasure-the heart. The artichoke also became a teaching lesson when Judy, with her young family, moved into military housing in California to find Artichokes in their yard. Given that it takes two years for the vegetable to flower, the original gardener never got to see the seeds of her labor. Many times, our actions and reactions in life are felt by people we will never meet, but we plant the seeds of kindness anyway

Anthony DeStefano's first book, A Travel Guide to Heaven, explored the wonders, joy and fun of the next life. In ALL THIS AND HEAVE, TOO he comes back to earth to reveal to readers the wonders, joys and fun of this life. Happiness: everyone wants it, not everyone has it-or even knows how to get it. People differ on the definition of happiness, where it comes from, and how to achieve it, but its importance to our everyday lives is universally agreed upon. Many writers have written on the subject of happiness, but an important aspect is always missing. A vast majority of self-help books neglect to mention a spiritual component when providing people with tools to better their lives, while the books that do focus on spirituality tend to concentrate on that and nothing else. ALL THIS AND HEAVE, TOO bridges these gaps to combine the best elements from both self-help and spiritual books to create an uplifting, joyful and motivational guide to living life to the fullest. DeStefano has crafted a method that provides nourishment for the whole self - it's Tony Robbins meets Thomas Aquinas; Andrew Weil meets St. Augustine. Chapters include: * Starting Fresh: Your Past Is Not Your Future! * The Attitude of Gratitude * Discipline: The Vince Lombardi Guide to Spirituality * Life is a Paradox In ALL THIS AND HEAVE, TOO , DeStefano teaches readers that they can experience the happiness of Heaven on earth, no matter what their circumstance.
