Want your kids to be happy? If you're like most parents, it's your most fervent wish. But is this just a pipe dream? Or is happiness more substantive? Is it possible that parents can actually do something constructive to create happy children? YES, THEY CAN! A "Simple Formula for Raising Happy Children" provides the ingredients of happiness and enumerates nine steps to ensure your children will be happy.
"This formula makes sense..." --Michael Dobson, author of Managing Up and other self-improvement books
"This book pushes us to question commonly-held beliefs and intuitions about parenting that--although well-intentioned--often don't help children cope with life's challenges. Dr. Herst encourages us to think about the steps that allow children to become independent, effective decision-makers prepared for life." --Betsy Olney, principal, Hyde Leadership Charter School (New York)
"The reader learns of Aristotle's dictum, 'Happiness is activity of the soul in accord with virtue.' A wise, thoughtful and, above all, practical book." --Denis Doyle, Winning the Brain Race and Reinventing Education [close]

Ever wonder why you always seem to seek the easiest and shortest way to accomplish something? And why is it so satisfying to drive along a road hitting every green light as if by magic?

The classic self-help book WAKE UP & LIFE has been out of print for decades but it is coming back in September and you can read an advance copy in JUNE!
"Act as if it were impossible to fail":
This phrase is the magic key to the heart of one of the most persuasive self-improvement books ever published – a work that, while forgotten, rivaled the popularity of contemporaneous books by Napoleon Hill and Dale Carnegie. WAKE UP & LIVE!by Dorothea Brande was published in 1936, and soared to popularity, selling over 1,000,000 copies in years ahead.
Rather than risk rejection, people often self-sabotage: blowing deadlines, alienating allies, aimlessly procrastinating. Brande’s grasp of the psychology of failure brought her a “eureka” moment. After a lifetime of searching she had found the answer.

"Take your writing seriously, even when nobody else does. Especially when nobody else does."
That’s the message that writers need to hear when their passion for writing wanes in the face of what often seems like nonstop resistance from life, the universe, and everything. With empathy and humor, this book provides a kind of tent revival for writers, helping them to jump start their writing again. More of a why-to than a how-to, this book nonetheless provides practical tips—some of them unorthodox—on what writers can try when they find more and more excuses not to sit down at their desks and do the work they used to love. If you’re slogging through a creative drought, this book may provide just the inspiration you need. [close]

The NEW YORK TIMES-bestselling author of TRANSCENDENCE and noted research psychiatrist explores how life's disappointments and difficulties provide us with the lessons we need to become better, bigger, and more resilient human beings.
"Dr. Rosenthal catalyzes conversations around adversity with tales of wisdom and survival that we can all treasure.” – Mehmet C. Oz, M.D.
In THE GIFT OF ADVERSITY, Norman Rosenthal illustrates his message through a series of compact, memorable chapters, each one drawn from episodes in the lives of his patients, colleagues, or himself, and concluded with a take-away maxim on the lesson learned.
Using stories from his own life—including his childhood in apartheid-era South Africa, his years after suffering a violent attack from a stranger, and his career as a clinical psychologist—as well as case studies and discussions with well-known figures like Viktor Frankl and David Lynch, Rosenthal's THE GIFT OF ADVERSITY shows that true innovation, emotional resilience, wisdom, and dignity can only come from confronting and understanding the adversity we have experienced. Even when life is hardest, there are meanings to be found, riches to be harvested, and gifts that can last a lifetime. [close]
