The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go Of Who You Think You're Supposed To Be and Embrace Who You Are, Brene Brown PhD
3 Brene Brown PhD The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go Of Who You Think You're Supposed To Be and Embrace Who You Are
Hazelden 245931 2010 159285849X / 9781592858491 Softcover Good Condition New York Times best-selling author and professor Brené Brown offers a powerful and inspiring book that explores how to cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to embrace your imperfections and to recognize that you are enough. Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself? In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, PhD, a leading expert on shame, authenticity and belonging, shares what she's learned from a decade of research on the power of Wholehearted Living--a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness. In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough, and to go to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging. 137 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Little Bee, Chris Cleave
4 Chris Cleave Little Bee
Simon & Schuster 242021 New York 2008 1416589643 / 9781416589648 Softcover Good Condition The lives of a sixteen-year-old Nigerian orphan and a well-off British woman collide in this page-turning #1 New York Times bestseller, book club favorite, and "affecting story of human triumph" (The New York Times Book Review) from Chris Cleave, author of Gold and Everyone Brave Is Forgiven. We don't want to tell you too much about this book. It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this: It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific. The story starts there, but the book doesn't. And it's what happens afterward that is most important. Once you have read it, you'll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds. 271 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction; United States; Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9781416589648. Inventory No: 242021.

Allen Lane 230066 Australia 2005 0713998555 / 9780713998559 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Part memoir, part remedy for the state we're in, with liberal sprinklings of common sense, Chris Patten's Not Quite the Diplomat is a frank and funny book from a very outspoken politician. After spending several years in the thick of international events, Chris Patten has seen rather a lot of the world - and the people who run it. And now he's free from the bonds of diplomacy, he doesn't have to be quite so careful about what he says. Here he gives us his forthright views on everything from the Tories' downfall to America's empire, from whether Blair has any political convictions to why Britain should start liking the French. 'Masterly, elegant, sprightly, wry ...the best political reading of the year' James Naughtie, The Times Books of the Year 'A garnering of rich personal experience ...Frank and vivid ...without betraying any confidences or relationships of trust (Sir Christopher Meyer, please note)' The Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year 'Elegant, warm, witty, stylish and readable ...If politics were sane, appointments to ministerial rank anywhere would be conditional on reading, digesting, understanding and acting upon the wisdom of this book' Independent 'Patten writes with wit, elegance and passion, showing a candour and courage uncommon among politicians' Sunday Telegraph Chris Patten is currently Chairman of the BBC Trust, and Chancellor of Oxford and Newcastle Universities. He is well known for being the last Governor of Hong Kong 1992-97, about which he wrote in East and West (1998).

Jean Rhys Letters 1931-1966, Francis Wyndham and Diana Melly - Editors
7 Francis Wyndham and Diana Melly - Editors Jean Rhys Letters 1931-1966
Andre Deutsch 237963 London 1984 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good In her will, Jean Rhys expressed a wish that no biography of her should be written unless authorized during her lifetime. Following her death, her literary executor was approached frequently with requests for permission to write "an official life". Finally he decided that, by compiling a volume of letters, authentic biographical information would be provided. But as the collection grew, the biographical aspect took on a secondary importance as the self-portrait began to reveal the turbulent process of literary creation. The final result is a portrait spanning the years 1931 (taking up the story roughly where it was left in "Smile Please") to 1966, when the long struggle to finish "Wide Sargasso Sea" was over. 313 pages. Light foxing to outer page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Autobiography; Biography & Autobiography; Inventory No: 237963. Hardcover

Flamingo 240297 Great Britain 2000 0006552153 / 9780006552154 Softcover Very Good Condition In the beginning diamonds came from India, nowhere else. And the greatest of those ancient stones cut a deep and bloody path across the history and legends of the country. The Koh-i-Noor, the Mountain of Light, has been fought over, cursed and occasionally lost. Seized by British agents eager to please the young Queen Victoria, it now lies in the Tower of London, its ownership still disputed. Kevin Rushby follows the trail of this great jewel on a journey that takes him to many fascinating corners of India and to the heart of Indian culture. Along the way he meets the dealers, smugglers and petty crooks who populate modern India's diamond trade, and finds that the depths of human greed and the heights of spiritual aspiration are both bound up in India's long association with diamonds. 272 pages.

HarperCollins 245654 USA 2001 0064408655 / 9780064408653 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Near Fine Condition Brett Helquist Dear Reader, You have undoubtedly picked up this book by mistake, so please put it down. Nobody in their right mind would read this particular book about the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire on purpose, because each dismal moment of their stay in the village of V.F.D. has been faithfully and dreadfully recorded in these pages. I can think of no single reason why anyone would want to open a book containing such unpleasant matters as migrating crows, an angry mob, a newspaper headline, the arrest of innocent people, the Deluxe Cell, and some very strange hats. It is my solemn and sacred occupation to research each detail of the Baudelaire children's lives and write them all down, but you may prefer to do some other solemn and sacred thing, such as reading another book instead. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket 161 pages. Illustrator: Brett Helquist. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
