Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity Amazon.com Review With first-chapter allusions to martial arts, "flow," "mind like water," and other concepts
275
$10.98 USD

Amazon.com Review With first-chapter allusions to martial arts, "flow," "mind like water," and other concepts borrowed from the East (and usually mangled), you'd almost think this self-helper from David Allen should have been called Zen and the Art of Schedule Maintenance. Not quite. Yes, Getting Things Done offers a complete system for downloading all those free-floating gotta-do's clogging your brain into a sophisticated framework of files and action lists--all purportedly to free your mind to focus on whatever you're working on. However, it still operates from the decidedly Western notion that if we could just get really, really organized, we could turn ourselves into 24/7 productivity machines. (To wit, Allen, whom the New Economy bible Fast Company has dubbed "the personal productivity guru," suggests that instead of meditating on crouching tigers and hidden dragons while you wait for a plane, you should unsheathe that high-tech saber known as the cell phone and attack that list of calls you need to return.) As whole-life-organizing systems go, Allen's is pretty good, even fun and therapeutic. It starts with the exhortation to take every unaccounted-for scrap of paper in your workstation that you can't junk, The next step is to write down every unaccounted-for gotta-do cramming your head onto its own scrap of paper. Finally, throw the whole stew into a giant "in-basket" That's where the processing and prioritizing begin; in Allen's system, it get a little convoluted at times, rife as it is with fancy terms, subterms, and sub-subterms for even the simplest concepts. Thank goodness the spine of his system is captured on a straightforward, one-page flowchart that you can pin over your desk and repeatedly consult without having to refer back to the book. That alone is worth the purchase price. Also of value is Allen's ingenious Two-Minute Rule: if there's anything you absolutely must do that you can do right now in two minutes or less, then do it now, thus freeing up your time and mind tenfold over the long term. It's commonsense advice so obvious that most of us completely overlook it, much to our detriment; Allen excels at dispensing such wisdom in this useful, if somewhat belabored, self-improver aimed at everyone from CEOs to soccer moms (who we all know are more organized than most CEOs to start with). --Timothy Murphy --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition. Read more From Booklist Allen, a management consultant and executive coach, provides insights into attaining maximum efficiency and at the same time relaxing whenever one needs or wants to. Readers learn that there is no single means for perfecting organizational efficiency or productivity; rather, the author offers tools to focus energies strategically and tactically without letting anything fall through the cracks. He provides tips, techniques, and tricks for implementation of his workflow management plan, which has two basic components: capture all the things that need to get done into a workable, dependable system; and discipline oneself to make front-end decisions with an action plan for all inputs into that system. In short, do it (quickly), delegate it (appropriately), or defer it. While an infomercial for the author's consulting practice, this road map for organizational efficiency may help many who have too much to do in too little time, both professionally and in their personal lives.

Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges Amazon.com Review An Amazon Best Book of December 2015: Madonna isn’t the only person famous for telling people to strike a
59
$19.60 USD

Amazon.com Review An Amazon Best Book of December 2015: Madonna isn’t the only person famous for telling people to strike a (power) pose. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy advocates for the same in a book that expounds on the ideas set forth in her popular 2012 TED Talk, “Your Body Shapes Who You Are.” It may sound silly, but assuming the assured body language of Wonder Woman, or that “Man Spreader” on the bus, can literally change your body chemistry and make you feel more confident in anxiety-inducing situations. I must admit I was a bit dubious when I first heard about this, but Cuddy’s Presence offers up sound science to back up her claims, and, well I tried it. Even sans the Lasso of Truth, I was less nervous about a public speaking engagement after taking Cuddy’s advice, and was therefore more successful at that endeavor. Translate this to a first date, a job interview, even those prickly conversations you hesitate to have with loved ones…and you’re conjuring self-confidence at the times you need it most. This is something that hits home for Cuddy, who overcame a traumatic brain injury to become a respected professor and researcher at the Harvard Business School, a feat she once thought inconceivable. Learning about the tenuous time in her life when she was paralyzed with doubts about her intellectual capacity, about how successful she could be in life, lends Presence a certain emotional center you don’t find in many books of its type. –Erin Kodicek Read more Review New York Times bestsellerWashington Post bestsellerWall Street Journal bestsellerUSA Today bestsellerPublishers Weekly bestsellerAmazon "Best Books of December" pick and December spotlightAmazon Canada "Best Books of December"AARP Editor's Pick and a "Top Ten Books of 2015"Forbes "15 Best Business Books of 2015" Business Insider "20 Best Business Books of 2015"Business Insider "20 of the Best Books by the Most Influential Thinkers in Business"Washington Post "12 Leadership Books to Watch for in 2015" Inc. #1 pick for "12 New Business Books for the Perfect Gift"People "Book of the Week"BusinessMirror "10 Books to Look for in Early 2016"Bustle "10 Books That'll Inspire You to Make the World a Better Place in 2016"Irish Independent "The 6 Best Motivational Reads for 2016"Shortlisted for the Thinkers50 Leadership Award (UK)World Economic Forum #1 pick for "Books on Leadership to Read This Holiday""Cuddy brings an abundance of humility and charm to the page. Her presence itself--her openhearted desire to help the insecure and the uneasy in this age of anxiety--shines through. PRESENCE feels at once concrete and inspiring, simple but ambitious--above all, truly powerful."―Heather Havrilesky, front page, New York Times Book Review"Amy Cuddy's must-read new book...is a triple threat: enjoyable, fascinating, and a brightly packaged New Year's resolution....There's a lot more to the body-mind connection, and that's what PRESENCE lays out so well.―Lane Florsheim, Marie Claire"A must-read for anyone looking to achieve their personal best."―Kim Hubbard, People (Book of the Week)"Amy Cuddy fuses the rigor of a researcher befitting one of the world's finest universities with the raw empathic insight that springs from uncommonly trying personal experience."―Maria Popova, Brainpickings"A treatise on presence."―Forbes"Filled with stories about achieving greater mindfulness, successfully coping with stress, and being present to our immediate moments, PRESENCE will help you direct all your competing energies more effectively.

This transformative self-help tome explains how assuming the Wonder Woman stance before a big interview sends an empowering message to your mind."―Deirdre Donahue, AARP"...Cuddy is endearingly normal. And her new book, PRESENCE, is as entertaining as it is scientific."―Associated Press/The National (UAE)"Amy Cuddy is making the world a braver place with her book, PRESENCE. Courage is contagious and presence begets presence. Weaving together science, practical examples, and storytelling, Cuddy shows us how bringing our boldest, most authentic selves to challenging situations inspires others to do the same. This book is a game-changer!"―Brene Brown, author of Daring Greatly and Rising Strong "PRESENCE is exactly the kind of behavioral science book the world needs."―Robert Cialdini, New York Times bestselling author of Influence "Amy Cuddy is the high priestess of self-confidence for the self-doubting. In PRESENCE, she uses her warmth, empathy, and laser-sharp intelligence to decode the mysteries of presence under social pressure. A must-read for--well, for everyone."―Susan Cain, co-founder of Quiet Revolution and author of Quiet"A captivating, charming read on harnessing confidence and poise. Demystifying a century of science, Amy Cuddy shows how we can achieve greater success and sincerity by changing the way we carry ourselves."―Adam Grant, author of Originals and Give and Take"Millions of people have already been empowered by Amy Cuddy's groundbreaking TED talk on 'power posing' -- but that was just the tip of the iceberg! In PRESENCE, Cuddy reveals a much bigger and deeper science: a whole new way of understanding the body-mind connection, and how our physical habits affect our thoughts, feelings and choices. Reading this book will forever change how you carry yourself, and in doing so, it will make you braver, bolder, and better able to show up for all of your life's greatest opportunities."―Jane McGonigal, author of Reality Is Broken and SuperBetter "In one exquisitely written book, Amy Cuddy illuminates for us the latest research of how the body and mind, in surprising yet elegant ways, affect who we are and how we are perceived. This generously cited book goes far beyond Amy Cuddy's TED talk. Delving deeply and widely into the research that confirms that we can transform ourselves, that we can change how we are perceived, that we can master the art and science of influence. But first we have to understand how the body affects the mind and the mind working with the body changes us, changes perceptions, and changes the world around us. And no one does this better than Amy Cuddy."―Joe Navarro, author of What Every BODY Is Saying "There is one thing that separates those who do from those who don't: power. Amy Cuddy helps us understand what it means to build our personal power, keep it strong when it falters and help us steer clear of arrogance. This book is a must read for every doer out there."―Simon Sinek, author of Leaders Eat Last and Start with Why "What could be more important in life than being yourself? In this wonderfully engaging, intelligent, and practical book, Amy Cuddy unpacks the cutting-edge psychology of presence when we most need it. I recommend it highly!"―William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes and author of Getting to Yes with Yourself "With advice that is both practical and profound, Amy Cuddy shows how to summon your true and best self when doing so matters most. Emotions are contagious. If you personify poise and optimism yourself, you enhance the odds that they will respond in kind."―Michael Wheeler, Harvard Business School, author of The Art of Negotiation "It's no mystery why Amy Cuddy is one of the most beloved TED speakers of all time. Her candid and incisive voice is a gift for anyone seeking to understand what makes people tick, and her research-based, inside-out approach to putting your best self forward in high-stakes situations makes this a must-read."―John Neffinger and Matthew Kohut, coauthors of Compelling People"You probably didn't know how much you were reading from your own body language. Amy Cuddy's beautiful new book explains how our minds and bodies connect and influence one another, affecting how we feel about ourselves and our place in the world."―Heidi Grant Halvorson, Columbia Business School, author of No One Understands You and What to Do About It and Focus "I'm loving the latest from Amy Cuddy."―Joanna Coles, Editor-in-Chief, Cosmopolitan Read more See all Editorial Reviews

What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours From School Library Journal Keys are central to the short stories in this collection; they can either open or lock away something
13
$18.36 USD

From School Library Journal Keys are central to the short stories in this collection; they can either open or lock away something of significance for the characters. All of the tales are intertwined with themes of search and possible retrieval, which will draw young adult readers into worlds that are sometimes secretive and sometimes elusive; they will be able to easily identify with that search of self that so often comes with adolescence. The characters are relatable to YA readers, from the young woman looking for her long-lost mother and heritage to the hopeful music fan wanting to find the best in a broken artist. These worlds and characters are complex and passionate, and readers will find themselves longing for more once the stories end. Even though the settings are quite strange (a locked library, a city of stopped clocks, a marshland of the drowned), there's a complexity here and the brilliant prose gently pulls readers in, encouraging them to identify with the characters. VERDICT A must-add to libraries, this work will appeal to fans of literary fiction.—April Sanders, Spring Hill College, Mobile, AL Read more Review “Magical and show stopping.” —Elle.com“Oyeyemi so expertly melds the everyday, the fantastic and the eternal, we have to ask if the line between ‘real’ and ‘unreal’ is murkier than we imagined—or to what extent a line exists at all. . . The deeper one descends into the fabulist warrens of these stories, the more mystery and menace abound, and with each story I had the delightful and rare experience of being utterly surprised. . . Transcendent.” —The New York Times Book Review“It is, in a word, flawless. . . Oyeyemi seems to be incapable of writing anything that's not wholly original. . . Oyeyemi manages to make the story both realistic and fantastical, and the characters are rendered with grace and compassion. . . [What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours] is a lot of things: dreamy, spellbinding, and unlike just about anything you can imagine. It's a book that resists comparisons; Oyeyemi's talent is as unique as it is formidable.” —NPR, Michael Schaub“Oyeyemi’s fictional world is scintillating and eccentric, an ‘implosion of memory,’ as one character puts it.” –The New Yorker“What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours. . . boasts ambitious stories written masterfully by an adventurous author, and is another example of Oyeyemi’s skill at finding inspiration in the smallest and most ephemeral details.” —Women in the World, in association with The New York Times“An enchanting and beautifully crafted first collection of stories, linked by the recurrence of keys. . .  Oyeyemi’s storytelling is without parallel.” —BBC.com“Oyeyemi infuses magic into the lives of contemporary characters.” —TIME“Dizzying, baffling, and beguiling. . . The stories in What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours are unruly in the best way, drawing on pre-modern modes of tale-telling (fairy tales, Boccaccio, The Arabian Nights) to show they’ve lost none of their power in the present.” —New York Magazine, Vulture“[Oyeyemi] again shows her ability to mesmerize and enchant.” —The Washington Post“Oyeyemi writes with mastery, sometimes keeping her prose sparse and declarative only to unleash a bounty of description and humor a sentence later.” —Entertainment Weekly“In this collection of short stories, there are many keys that unlock many things. . .  What links them all? You’ll want to open and see.” —Cosmopolitan“These modern fairy tales from award-winning author Helen Oyeyemi…will unlock your imagination with stories of love, loss, and. . .  keys. . .  magical, feverish, spooky, and delightful.” —Marie Claire“The most inventive. . . story collection of the year.” –O, The Oprah Magazine“Inventive and free-ranging. . . Combining the fantastical and the ordinary to dreamlike effect, these tales are full of tenderness, humour and strange delights.” –The Financial Times“Summarizing Oyeyemi is like trying to tell a dream. . .  Casual and accessible at the sentence level, [these stories] are not so much experimental as deeply comfortable with the pre-narrative and proto-narrative impulses at the heart of storytelling.” —The Chicago Tribune   “A potent and playful collection.” —The Boston Globe“[U]napologetically odd—a goldmine for those who crave magical realism with surprising twists told through spectacular writing. . . Readers should take their time with each story, possibly rereading in order to glean as much of Oyeyemi’s intent and meaning as possible.”  —San Francisco Book Review  “These hauntingly enigmatic linked short stories attest to the author's reputation as a stylist of the first rank… Fasten your seatbelts for the ride…  ‘What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours’ [is] a testament to her growing reputation as a contemporary master.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune  “Spellbinding.” —The Denver Post“Flirting with the speculative, Oyeyemi weaves stories about living puppets and their puppet masters, old diaries not meant to be opened, ancient libraries, and secret gardens. It’s hands-down my favorite book of the year thus far.” —The Chicago Review of Books“Think the god Hermes, that fleet-footed trickster, and perhaps you have Oyeyemi’s style in a nutshell… Oyeyemi’s infinitely nested stories seem an end in themselves, born of a limitless imagination.” —Los Angeles Review of Books“Breathtakingly bold and original.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel“Oyeyemi demonstrates her deftness with description, of finding beauty in bizarre places. . . being granted access to these inventive and ambitious stories is a bit like receiving a gift, one full of strange and private wonders.” —Miami Herald“Whether it’s the one about the puppetry school or the mystical diary, these nine virtuosic stories promise to mix up your reading diet with deliciously weird, thought-provoking, and fearless fare.” —Los Angeles Magazine“Surprising, and satisfyingly so.” —Dallas Morning News“Short stories that lead readers on secret journeys without ever leaving home.” –Pittsburgh Tribune Review“Boldly original stories, often with fantastic elements.” –The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel“In every story, surprising and beautiful phrases fall carelessly from the author’s pen. Which is a good reminder for aspiring writers: Trust that your imagination is infinite. Creativity is not like currency; spending it doesn’t leave you with less. Thinking creatively inspires more creativity. Oyeyemi shows us what can be accomplished with absolute trust in the expansiveness of one’s imagination. If you’re feeling uncertain, just dip into What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours for the proof.” –Washington Independent Review of Books“A book that is sure to unlock the imagination of anyone who follows along.”—Refinery29“A downright addictive read.” —Nylon“There is no other fiction writer working in English, save Toni Morrison, whose books I look forward to more.”  —Brooklyn Magazine“Masterful.”  —Slate"Contains Oyeyemi's heady trademark combination of upside down fairy tale fantasy that is as emotionally resonant as it is inventive, and the excellent details from modern life that bring her stories firmly into some magical version of our own world." —Esquire“A restless imagination harnessed to a smooth and propulsive prose style — Helen Oyeyemi’s fiction is a juggernaut, and she brakes for no one.” —Vulture“Helen Oyeyemi is a literary genius, and it shows in this fantastic collection of short stories. . .  With characters that will welcome you, push you, and surprise you, Oyeyemi's writing takes you past your expectations.” —Bustle“Helen Oyeyemi has established herself as one of the premiere fabulists in the realm of the contemporary novel. . . [This collection] serves beauty and violence in equal measure, but is beholden to neither.” —Flavorwire“A revelation. . . the perfect story collection.”  —Mashable“Here is the delightful union of vivid language, compelling plot, resonant characters and profound meaning that we turn to literature to find.” —The Root“On the page [Oyeyemi] roars. . .  Oyeyemi leaves us spellbound and begging for more of her ingenious and utterly addictive prose.” —Essence“Helen Oyeyemi is a master at mixing magical elements with substantive topics.” —Redbook“Both charming and unsettling, Oyeyemi’s stories will stay with you a long time.”—Bust“[A] word must be said about the prose itself: spectacular.” —Electric Literature“Stunning. . .  Highly imaginative and enchanting. . .  This collection is Oyeyemi at her best.” —Buzzfeed “Enchanting.” —BookRiot   “These nine casually interlocking stories. . . overflow with the cerebral humor and fantastical plots that readers have come to expect from Oyeyemi.” —Kirkus (starred) “[Oyeyemi’s] enthusiasm for a world where witches and phantoms coexist with psychiatrists and graduate students is infectious. What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours leaves readers with the captivating notion that behind every locked door lies additional mysteries.” —BookPage  “Page after page of macabre wit and beautiful, lingering imagery. This is a book where a busking viszla and ironic prison selfies happily co-exist. . .  If these stories are mazes, they’re ones where readers can be all too happy to find themselves lost.” —Books and Whatnot Read more See all Editorial Reviews

Dazed And Confused (1993 Film)

Product Description Certified double platinum by the RIAA. (11/97) Amazon.com Tellingly, director Richard Linklatter's Dazed and Confused was released 20 years after American Grafitti and offers a similar story of troubled young personalities lurking beneath an oversaturated pop culture veneer. Like Lucas before him, Linklatter clearly relishes that gloss and wields it like an ironic chainsaw. His soundtrack is a raucous, authentic collection of mid-70's radio fare, be it sharp-edged pop (Sweet, the vastly underrated Rick Derringer), nascent metal (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple) and out-and-out hard cheese (Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas). Dazed and Confused is the real sound of 70's teenage America. --Jerry McCulley

Product Description This tops any single-CD Carpenters collection previously available in the U.S., adding smashes like I Won't Last a Day Without You; Please Mr. Postman; Only Yesterday , and Touch Me When We're Dancing to (They Long to Be) Close to You; Top of the World; Superstar , and the rest of these pop treasures. 21 tracks, including a version of For All We Know from a British TV special! Amazon.com This revamped version of the Carpenters' two original Singles LPs may, despite the absence of some Top 40 charters, stand as the definitive single-CD collection of the duo's hits. Included are most of the reasons Karen Carpenter's bring-the-pain vocals are still revered by thrift-shopping college kids and their moms alike. Despite the act's squeaky-clean image, Karen was of course more than touched by tragedy; at least one of the more hopeful of these tunes, "For All We Know," has doubt built right into its title. The best of this is smart, cry-in-your-Evian pop that sounds a lot less dated than it might in your memory. "Close to You" and "Hurting Each Other" are actually soulful claims on their then-new soft-pop tradition, while the towering "Goodbye to Love" is worthy of Rumours-era Christine McVie. Despite some duds, mostly from its later period, 1969-1981 makes its case for this enduring and sometimes classic outfit. --Rickey Wright
