GOING GRAY is an exploration of that experience and a frank, warm, and funny investigation of aging.

Fraternal twins, Summer Pitt and Dirk Pitt, Jr., are working to determine the origin of a strange brown tide infesting the ocean off the shore of Nicaragua when two startling things happen: Summer discovers an artifact, something strange and beautiful and ancient. And the worst storm in years boils up out of the sky, heading straight for them and a nearby floating luxury resort hotel called Ocean Wanderer. The peril for everybody concerned is incalculable. And now that Dirk Pitt has learned he's a father, he will stop at nothing to protect his two children. He rushes into the chaos, only to find that what's left in the storm's wake makes the furies of nature pale in comparison. For there is an all-too-human evil at work in that part of the world, and Summer's relic may be the only clue to the man calling the shots. Whoever he is, he's connected to a cult that believes the Celts, also known as the Achaeans, reached the New World millennia before the accepted history suggests. If he's right, his ancestors laid the foundation for the work he will soon complete--and our world will be a very different place. Though if Summer's discovery is to be believed, the world is already a very different place... 485 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Working With Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman
8 Daniel Goleman Working With Emotional Intelligence
Bloomsbury 238752 Great Britain 1998 0747542902 / 9780747542902 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Do you have what it takes to succeed in your career? The secret of success is not what they taught you in school. What matters most is not IQ, not a business school degree, not even technical know-how or years of expertise. The single most important factor in job performance and advancement is emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is actually a set of skills that anyone can acquire, and in this practical guide, Daniel Goleman identifies them, explains their importance, and shows how they can be fostered. For leaders, emotional intelligence is almost 90 percent of what sets stars apart from the mediocre. As Goleman documents, it's the essential ingredient for reaching and staying at the top in any field, even in high-tech careers. And organizations that learn to operate in emotionally intelligent ways are the companies that will remain vital and dynamic in the competitive marketplace of today--and the future. Comprehensively researched, crisply written, and packed with fascinating case histories of triumphs, disasters, and dramatic turnarounds, Working with Emotional Intelligence may be the most important business book you'll ever read. Drawing on unparalleled access to business leaders around the world and studies in more than 500 organizations, Goleman documents an astonishing fact: in determining star performance in every field, emotional intelligence matters twice as much as IQ or technical expertise. Readers also discover how emotional competence can be learned. Goleman analyzes five key sets of skills and vividly shows how they determine who is hired and who is fired in the top corporations in the world. He also provides guidelines for training in the "emotionally intelligent organization," in chapters that no one, from manager to CEO, should miss. Working with Emotional Intelligence could prove to be the most important reference for bottom-line businesspeople in the first decades of the 21st century. 384 pages.

The Road to Character, David Brooks
9 David Brooks The Road to Character
Random House 245436 New York 2015 0812983416 / 9780812983418 Softcover Near Fine Condition With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In The Social Animal, he explored the neuroscience of human connection and how we can flourish together. Now, in The Road to Character, he focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Looking to some of the world's greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character. Labor activist Frances Perkins understood the need to suppress parts of herself so that she could be an instrument in a larger cause. Dwight Eisenhower organized his life not around impulsive self-expression but considered self-restraint. Dorothy Day, a devout Catholic convert and champion of the poor, learned as a young woman the vocabulary of simplicity and surrender. Civil rights pioneers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin learned reticence and the logic of self-discipline, the need to distrust oneself even while waging a noble crusade. Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth. 296 pages.

Private Publication 243068 NSW, Australia 2014 0987578715 / 9780987578716 Softcover Very Good Condition Don't be fooled by the title. Australian author Hannah Boland is a faithful servant of Jesus. But having lost a second near full-term baby in 2013, Hannah was forced to face the deep, often unanswered questions of the Christian faith and to peel away the layers of fluff or "superstition" to see what really lies at the heart of her faith, and to discover anew what it means to know God. To help her do this, Hannah engaged the help of three of her most trusted Godly mentors, and asked them to respond in whatever way they chose with only one condition: they were not allowed to give answers based solely on rhetoric or learned theology, but rather from their own personal walk with God whilst drawing upon the fruit of their respective areas of ministry, professional formation and life experience. The result is a challenging book which may very well change the way you think about God, Jesus and the Bible, regardless of whether or not you share the faith of Christianity. 214 pages.

John Wiley & Sons 233287 Toronto 1997 0471642207 / 9780471642206 Softcover Very Good Condition It happened in 1988, and a man named Jim Hayhurst was there to witness it. Two men died trying to climb Mount Everest. They died because they failed to understand themselves and their goals. They attempted a climb that was not for them. They were not on the right mountain. The Right Mountain is Jim's story of that climb. It is a riveting account of how traditional definitions of success can break down and what can be done to improve them. As part of the 1988 Canadian Expedition to Mount Everest, Jim experienced first hand the monumental challenges involved in climbing the world's highest mountain. He takes you on that expedition, across surging rivers, over treacherous ice fields, and up mountains where temperatures dip to 60 below and winds gust to over 160 miles per hour. He describes the life-threatening experiences that affected each member of the team, the critical choices that had to be made, and the lessons that were learned as a result. More than an adventure story, The Right Mountain is a graphic illustration of what it means to be successful. Not just in terms of short-lived victories. But in terms that are right for the individual, that lead to sustained success and real satisfaction. 209 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
