Everyone is on a journey of growth, from birth to death. The authors used their research data, to tap into the vital stages of this journey of growth from a psychological growth perspective. They linked the stages of psychological growth to self-leadership development. Additionally, they linked different stages of self-leadership development to different types and styles of leadership. For example, they found that authoritative leadership is linked to earlier stages of psychological growth, while inclusive leadership is linked to latter stages of psychological growth. 

The Poetic Journey of Self-Leadership: Leadership Development along Stages of Psychological Growth is relevant to those interested in self-reflection (as it assists to assign oneself to a stage of psychological development), personal growth (as it anticipates processes to follow during one’s current stage of development), self-leadership development, as well as useful for leadership assessment by practitioners (by assigning leadership to stages of development). Additionally, from an academic perspective, the book is relevant to psychology, sociology and leadership students.

Contents include:
•	Surviving: Abandonment versus overwhelment; Survival-stage leader
•	Conforming: Internality versus externality; Conforming leader
•	Differentiating: Social predestination; Differentiated leader
•	Individuating: Guilt versus fear; Journey to individuation; Conquering complexes; Authenticity; Individuated leader
•	Self-actualizing: Kintsugi; Traumas; Magical other; Self-actualised leader
•	Integrating: Values; Heroes; Purpose; Integrated leader
•	Serving: Servant leader

Books about leadership and poetry are mostly written from the perspective of leaders, but The Poetic Journey of Self-Leadership: Leadership Development along Stages of Psychological Growth, focuses on self-leadership development, and not the usual listing of heroic leader capabilities that must be strived for. 

The authors used self-reported poetry from diverse participants, and in their own voices as their main data collection source. The book presents a diversity of writing styles and topics, and makes it much wider in scope and richer than other books.

    The science of getting rich was written by New Thought Movement author Wallace D. Wattles in 1910. It is his best known work and is based on his concept of the ‘Certain (positive) Way of Thinking’. This new trend for using mind over matter was made even more unusual, yet popular, by Wattles’ application of it to business prosperity, mind training, and success in the material world. Wattles showed that we all have a super-power – the power of our mind – and it can be used to harness wealth beyond our greatest dreams. We are taught to be somewhat embarrassed about money and about being wealthy. It is vulgar and gauche to say we love money. Surely it is immoral and anti-spiritual too? Wattles was having none of that; he had a deep concern for spirituality and believed that it is our moral duty to become rich, in order to develop as much as we can.
    In Wallace D. Wattles’ The Science of Getting Rich James Robinson illustrates the timeless nature of Wattles’ insights by bringing them to life with modern case studies. His brilliant interpretation of The Science of Getting Rich is an entertaining accompaniment to one of the most popular self-help books ever written. In Robinson’s modern-day interpretation of a life changing classic, the key themes and ideas have been distilled into 52 bite-sized chunks, supported by examples from life in the twenty-first century. Inside readers will learn how to:
    • Become a money magnet;
    • Harness their special talents;
    • Avoid the haters;
    • Get everyone on side;
    • Make the mind their friend.
    This entertaining accompaniment to one of the most influential self-help books ever written unlocks Wattles’ methodology to provide readers with all the tools they need to harness the power of their will.

  • How a Psychologist Can Prepare for a Successful Negotiation - What You Need to Do BEFORE a Negotiation Starts in Order to Get the Best Possible Outcome - cover

    How a Psychologist Can Prepare...

    It turns out that most negotiations are over even before they begin. The team that has spent the most time planning for the negotiation, doing their homework, and collecting the data that they'll need is the one that's going to walk away from the table with the best deal. Wouldn't you want that team to be your team?
    What You'll Find Inside:
    Planning is what happens before a psychologist sits down at the negotiating table. There are no negotiating tactics or tricks at play here. It's just a matter of you doing your homework.  At the same time you hope that the other side is NOT doing their homework so that you'll show up at the negotiation more prepared then they are.
    Just committing to doing the planning that your next negotiation is going to require is not enough, you also have to know just exactly how to go about doing it. That's what this book is going to teach you. Every negotiation is different and so the planning that you'll have to do for every negotiation will be different also.
    The planning that is required for a successful negotiation takes on many different forms. These can include planning where and when the negotiations will be held, what concessions you'll be willing to make to the other side, and understanding who has what power in the negotiations. 
    The end result of doing the planning that a negotiation requires is that when you sit down at the negotiating table, you'll have a sense of being prepared. You'll know what you need to know about the other side of the table, what their goals are, what their constraints are, and what they hope to be able to get out of the negotiations. This is exactly the type of knowledge that every psychologist is going to need in order to be able to reach the type of deal that will allow you to walk away from the table with a sense of accomplishment.

    A man and his three children leave the “Little Mother” at home in the city and set up temporary housekeeping in a country cottage to supervise the remodeling of the house he has just purchased there. The story is narrated by the father. His interactions with his children, interspersed with his own recollections of past events, make for hilarious reading.This is Jerome at his best, IMHO, although this is apparently one of this lesser known novels.(Summary by Debra Lynn)

    Plutocrats - The Rise of the New...

    There has always been some gap between rich and poor in this country, but in the last few decades what it means to be rich has changed dramatically. Alarmingly, the greatest income gap is not between the 1 percent and the 99 percent, but within the wealthiest 1 percent of our nation—as the merely wealthy are left behind by the rapidly expanding fortunes of the new global super-rich. Forget the 1 percent; Plutocrats proves that it is the wealthiest 0.1 percent who are outpacing the rest of us at break-neck speed. 
    What's changed is more than numbers. Today, most colossal fortunes are new, not inherited—amassed by perceptive businessmen who see themselves as deserving victors in a cut-throat international competition. As a transglobal class of successful professionals, today's self-made oligarchs often feel they have more in common with one another than with their countrymen back home. Bringing together the economics and psychology of these new super-rich, Plutocrats puts us inside a league very much of its own, with its own rules. 
    The closest mirror to our own time is the late nineteenth century Gilded Age—the era of powerful 'robber barons' like Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller. Then as now, emerging markets and innovative technologies collided to produce unprecedented wealth for more people than ever in human history. Yet those at the very top benefited far more than others—and from this pinnacle they exercised immense and unchecked power in their countries. Today's closest analogue to these robber barons can be found in the turbulent economies of India, Brazil, and China, all home to ferocious market competition and political turmoil. But wealth, corruption, and populism are no longer constrained by national borders, so this new Gilded Age is already transforming the economics of the West as well. Plutocrats demonstrates how  social upheavals generated by the first Gilded Age may pale in comparison to what is in store for us, as the wealth of the entire globalized world is concentrated in fewer and fewer hands. 
    Cracking open the tight-knit world of the new global super-rich is Chrystia Freeland, an acclaimed business journalist who has spent nearly two decades reporting on the new transglobal elite. She parses an internal Citigroup memo that urges clients to design portfolios around the international "Plutonomy" and not the national "rest"; follows Russian, Mexican, and Indian oligarchs during the privatization boom as they manipulate the levers of power to commandeer their local economies; breaks down the gender divide between the vast female-managed 'middle class' and the world's one thousand billionaires; shows how, by controlling both the economic and political institutions of their nation, the richest members of China's National People's Congress have amassed more wealth than every branch of American government combined—the president, his cabinet, the justices of the Supreme Court, and both houses of Congress. 
    Though the results can be shocking, Freeland dissects the lives of the world's wealthiest individuals with empathy, intelligence, and deep insight. Intelligently written, powerfully researched, and propelled by fascinating original interviews with the plutocrats themselves, Plutocrats is a tour-de-force of social and economic history, and the definitive examination of inequality in our time.
