AdaptAbility How to Survive Change You Didn't Ask For

By Ryan, M.J.

NY: Harmony, 2009. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Near FineChange is hard, we say, and it is even harder when change is thrust upon us. In todays tough times, we may be forced to reinvent our career or downsize our livesat any point in life, we may lose a love or a dream. Our first reaction to change we didnt ask for may be to rail against fate. But what if we could see past todays turmoil and spot the opportunities that lie within unasked-for change? That is the promise of AdaptAbility, bestselling author and executive coach M. J. Ryans paradigm-shifting new book on not merely surviving but thriving when change is required. Why is it so hard to accept change? Paradoxically, it is for the very reason that our brains usually work so wellwe are designed to learn something and make it automatic. The problem is that when circumstances change, our efficient brains keep trying to do things the same old way. In AdaptAbility, Ryan provides strategies to retrain your brain and optimize your response to change, step by step: by first accepting the new reality, then expanding your options, and finally, taking effective action. She offers cutting-edge tools for becoming calmer, less fearful, and more flexible, creative, and resourceful in your thinking. Best of all, as your adapt-ability increases, so does your confidence that you will be able to face whatever life sends your way and find new ways to flourish. 7.60 X 5.20 X 1 inches, 240 pages

Solitude A Return to the Self

By Storr, Anthony

NY: Free Press, 1988. 1st American Edition . Paperback. Very Good. Clean tight edition, minor edge wear. Clean tight text, spine has no creases, Anthony Storr's enlightening meditation on the creative individual's need for solitude has become a classic. "Solitude" was seminal in challenging the established belief that "interpersonal relationships of an intimate kind are the chief, if not the only, source of human happiness." Indeed, most self-help literature still places relationships at the center of human existence. Lucid and lyrical, Storr's book cites numerous examples of brilliant scholars and artists -- from Beethoven and Kant to Anne Sexton and Beatrix Potter -- to demonstrate that solitude ranks alongside relationships in its impact on an individual's well-being and productivity, as well as on society's progress and health. 9.20 X 6.10 X 0.70 inches, 240 pages
