How to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t is a straight-shooting approach to self-improvement for women, one that offers no-crap truth-telling about the most common self-destructive behaviors women tend to engage in. From listening to the imposter complex and bitchy inner critic to catastrophizing and people-pleasing, Andrea Owen - a nationally sought-after life coach - crystallizes what's behind these invisible, undermining habits. With each chapter, she kicks women's gears out of autopilot and empowers them to create happier, more fulfilling lives.

In How the World Sees You, author and personal branding expert Sally Hogshead applies the principles of fascination triggers to understanding "personality brands" - how individuals use different triggers to influence, persuade, and captivate others. You already know how you see yourself and the world. But how does the world see you? If you want to be heard and remembered, if you want people to take action on your ideas and opinions, then you need to get the full picture.

Two cousins, Rory and Arden, lie unconscious in a hospital burn unit. The fire, which broke out in their shared college dorm room, killed another student, and the police want answers. Tension between Rory and Arden's parents was already at an all-time high before the fire, owing to a recent financial crisis and the decline of the family business. As the parents huddle anxiously in the waiting room, carefully avoiding the subject of their own unraveling relationships, disturbing truths come to light.

Her medical records - from a month-long hospital stay of which she had no memory - reported psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier she had been a healthy, ambitious twenty-four-year-old, six months into her first serious relationship and a sparkling career as a cub reporter

In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

This just makes SO much sense! Why not have several mini-retirements throughout our lives?! Since reading this book several times, I have found myself more focused and energized! Once you outline what it is you really want in life, it is easier to focus on what it will take to get you there. Thank you Tim Ferris for a phenominal book!

Join author Tim Ferriss as he shares the incredible experiments he's done over 10 years to beat genetics and achieve the impossible…for himself and more than 200 men and women aged 18 to 70. You don't need better genetics or more discipline. You need immediate results that compel you to continue. This is an abridged edition.

Tim Ferris has done a LOT of independent research on how to get the "ideal" body. The results of his experiences are chronicled in an easy to listen to format. I found myself taking many notes while listening, but then found his detailed program is available online (so save yourself the hassle and look it up so you have all the details of the program wihout getting into a wreck!). He walks you through his personal history and this helps one better understand how he came to the details. Will I follow all of his advice? I'm not likely to put an icepack on the neck daily in order to increase my metabolism, however he does have many which I will add to my daily program.
