    Erik Weihenmayer was the first blind man to summit McKinley. He also reached the top of Everest, scaled the 3,300-foot wall of El Capitan, and married his sweetheart on Kilimanjaro. This is his remarkable story, about daring to dream in the face of a seemingly insurmountable limitation. Jon Krakauer, author of Into Thin Air, calls Weihenmayer "an inspiration to other blind people and plenty of us folks who can see just fine."

    In this eye-opening handbook, the internationally noted speaker, economics expert, and bestselling author, Noreen Hertz, reveals the extent to which the biggest decisions in our lives are often made on the basis of flawed information, weak assumptions, corrupted data, insufficient scrutiny of others, and a lack of self-knowledge. To avert such disasters, Hertz persuasively argues, we need to become empowered decision-makers, capable of making high-stakes choices and holding accountable those who advise us.

    Until about 1800, the West and the Islamic realm were like two adjacent, parallel universes, each assuming itself to be the center of the world while ignoring the other. As Europeans colonized the globe, the two world histories intersected and the Western narrative drove the other one under. The West hardly noticed, but the Islamic world found the encounter profoundly disrupting.

    Being understood by someone you love is one of the most powerful feelings, at any age. For a young child, it is the most important of all experiences because it allows the child's mind and sense of self to grow. In the midst of the perennial concerns parents bring to Dr. Claudia Gold, she shows the magical effect of seeing a problem from their child's point of view. Most parenting books teach parents what to do to solve behavior problems, but Dr. Gold shows parents how to be with a child. Crises are defused when children feel truly heard and validated; this is how they learn to understand, and, eventually, control themselves.
