Speaker's Lifetime Library - Leonard. Spinrad


Speaker's Lifetime Library

Most people name public speaking as their greatest fear--it outranks even death for that coveted position. If you're like most, your knees turn to water at the prospect of standing before your fellows and giving a speech, but it needn't be that way. Preparation builds confidence, and confidence is all it takes to win over a crowd. The Speaker's Lifetime Library will help you prepare for any speech on any occasion with its four extensive sections: "The Speaker's Reference Guide," "Apt Comparisons," "The Day and Date Book," and "The Special Occasions Book." The first is a collection of more than 150 sets of definitions, quotations, aphorisms, anecdotes, and facts about subjects such as computers, motivation, and youth. ("If youth be a defect, it is one that we outgrow only too soon." --James Russell Lowell) "Apt Comparisons" lists metaphors, symbols, and opposites for almost 1,000 common words; it is followed with a long section detailing great events for each day of the year--even February 29, when the first Playboy Club opened in 1960! The large volume is topped off with speech ideas written for over 50 different occasions. Whether you're opening an art gallery or speaking at your sister's wedding, you'll find the Speaker's Lifetime Library invaluable in shaking the jitters and bringing down the house. --Rob Lightner

Secrets from the Sofa: A Psychologist's Guide to Achieving Personal Peace - Kenneth Herman


Secrets from the Sofa: A Psychologist's Guide to Achieving Personal Peace

If what everyone really wants from life is happiness, success, and peace of mind, then why do people stay at unrewarding jobs or in destructive relationships? Why are people neglecting their physical and mental health? Why do we sometimes have so much trouble just getting through the day? Unfortunately, people feel safe and secure with familiar emotions. Even misery is preferable to the anticipated anxiety associated with change. Intellectually, we would like to change; emotionally, we question if change is necessary-or even possible. As a practicing clinical psychologist for over 45 years, Dr. Kenneth Herman shares his "Secrets from the Sofa"-his proven step by step approach to helping people change and achieve a greater sense of purpose, happiness and peace. He offers readers the chance to be their own psychologist; to look at their problems, to address where they are coming from, to make a plan to overcome the issues, and then to execute that plan. With motivation and determination, you will find that your personal peace plan can make a change for the better completely possible. "Secrets from a Sofa" can lead you to a happier, more fulfilling life. And if you really put your mind to it, it will.

Generation Earn: The Young Professional's Guide to Spending, Investing, and Giving Back - Kimberly Palmer


Generation Earn: The Young Professional's Guide to Spending, Investing, and Giving Back

As a young professional today, you are part of a generation with greater earning power and more advanced degrees than preceding ones—along with a fresh, holistic outlook on financial success. Yes, you might have taken out more debt than previous generations, but that doesn’t mean you’re a slacker living off credit cards and takeout as media pundits would have people believe. Kimberly Palmer, the Alpha Consumer columnist for US News & World Report, frequently receives questions from twenty-, thirty-, and forty-something readers like you about making smart, sustainable life choices, including:

What should I be doing with my savings?  •  Should I take on freelance jobs?  •  Where should I invest my money?  •  Should I buy a house or keep renting?  •  Does it make sense to share a mortgage with my significant other?  •  Can I afford a baby?  •  How can I support the causes I believe in?  •  Should I start a nonprofit?

In Generation Earn, Palmer answers these questions—and many more—in three parts. Part one centers on the self, covering professional goals, personal spending, debt management, and investing. Part two focuses on creating a home, including renting, mortgages, marriage, and saving for baby. Part three addresses the world at large, including green spending, sustainable donating, and supporting nonprofits. Add it all up and you have a plan for every major decision you’ll have to make to create a successful life.
