Social Intelligence provides a highly accessible and comprehensive model for describing, assessing, and developing social intelligence at a personal level. We now live in a learning economy, says Brad Staats, and while learning has always been important, the returns on lifetime learning are greater than ever. Our primary focus must be on our ability to learn. We must strive to develop new skills to create more value - or be left behind. In Never Stop Learning , Staats outlines the framework that will help you become more effective as a lifelong learner.
With over a quarter of a million copies sold, Mindfulness in Plain English is one of the most influential books in the burgeoning field of mindfulness and a timeless classic introduction to meditation. This is a book that people listen to, love, and share - a book that people talk about, write about, reflect on, and return to over and over again. With great wit and stunning intellect - drawing on a diverse array of faiths, including Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Christian mysticism, and Islam - Huxley examines the spiritual beliefs of various religious traditions and explains how they are united by a common human yearning to experience the divine.
Roughly 2, years ago, the Athenian people established a radical democracy in which power derived from the votes of everyday citizens. At a time when local governments ranged from oligarchy to tyranny, the elite classes of Athens gradually ceded power to the inexperienced masses, whose votes served as referendums for everything from taxation to war to welfare.
The sequence of events that led to this development is astonishing, and the society that flourished under Athenian democracy is one of the greatest - even if greatly flawed - achievements in world history. Have you ever driven several miles without noticing anything on the road or read a page in a book without registering any of it? Do the day's worries and disappointments crowd your mind as you're trying to fall asleep at night? Do you feel stressed much of the time and aren't sure how to find peace? In this book Amit Sood, MD, MSc, a Mayo Clinic specialist in stress and resiliency, reveals how the mind's instinctive restlessness and shortsightedness generate stress and anxiety and presents strategies for living a more peaceful life.
The book is based on the highly popular stress management program offered at Mayo Clinic that Dr. Sood developed after two decades of work with tens of thousands of people.

All of these concepts are weaved into a practical and fun journey that has been tested in numerous scientific studies, with consistently positive results. Take the first step to discover greater peace and joy for you and your loved ones. No exageration. This book has done more for me than the Counselor I saw, the Therapist I went to, and even the Psychiatrist I was seeing. It is a foundation for peace and happiness, and even more so, a key to a functional relationship and raising healthy children.
No book has done more for me, I can not recommend it enough. It all seemed so hopeless for so many years, but this book has changed everything, and I mean everything. I will listen to it over and over again for the rest of my life. Thank you. The content is decent, particularly the neuroscience parts early on, but the narrator makes it painful.
Couldn't make it past the half way point. Other than the Bible, this is probably the only book that I have ever read that could actually change The story itself seems interesting, but I just couldn't handle the narrator any longer. I made it three hours in and had to give up. I believe everything the author wrote.
See a Problem?
But, it is like a diet or weight loss book, The only way for all of that wisdom to do the reader any good is if he or she does the work of putting the knowledge into practice as a lifestyle change. It isn't good enough to read about the ideas. To be effective and life changing they must move from being an object of study to ideas for action.
The difference is the voice talent wasn't trying to be funny and it is a long book for that cadence. I assume it is just his way of articulating himself. So, if you like Mo Rocca you might like this performance. If you aren't a fan of the humorist then the performance might turn you off from a very good book. It isn't bad. It is a professional reading of the book.
The tone just sounds incongruous with the subject matter to me. Even if you don't like the performance I urge you to stick with the book. I believe it can be a life changer. Will reread this one. This is a wonderful body of work. Very insightful and informative. The narrator putts, perhaps a little too much emphasis into the matter, but after a while I got use to it.
However, I cannot listen to it without wincing and going back to my Kindle version. It has stopped me from recommending it to those who might benefit from it.

I do not enjoy reading.
This was a great way to learn the material during my commute every morning. I looked forward to it everyday. What did you like best about this story? I like the biological rational provided by the author and the multitude of examples of each concept. Sood provided many pertinent examples from his life and family, history, artists and spiritual leaders. It made it very easy to relate to. I prefer fact based rationale with little "fluff" and this was fantastic. I appreciated that it was not religious, but spiritual.
I recommend it to everyone I talk to and practice gratitude and compassion everyday.
storinazsares.tk It is harder than I expected but worth it. His voice was easy to listen to.
Highly recommend! His happiness book is a must read. I have a concussion and reading is excruciatingly difficult with short term memory issues.
