Summary

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.

    Book 1: Litecoin - Several cryptocurrencies are fighting to be first in line, and although Bitcoin is the largest, most expensive one at this moment, there may be other opportunities people have overlooked. Litecoin is one of those. With Litecoin, there are great possibilities. Hence the purpose of this guide: to enlighten you and show you the way regarding this currency.  
    Book 2: Bitcoin Business - The Bitcoin hype has blown up and it’s still a great opportunity to invest or buy cryptocurrencies. How long it will last, nobody knows. But if you know what you’re doing, you can definitely increase your income. This book is there to guide you to make the right decisions. It focuses specifically on the business side of it, and whether or not you can make a return on investment. 
    Book 3: Bitcoin Tools - Aside from all the basic “bitcoin for beginners” books, this book shares a different perspective by looking at the specific tools you can use, such as blockchain and charting tools, to mine and buy bitcoin, and cash on it big time at the right time!  
    Book 4: Bitcoin Trading - People have been talking about it for a while now. They used to say it’s a scam, it’s for nerds, or it will disappear in a year or two. Well, now some of those skeptics have joined the mining and trading game themselves. And the sad thing is: So many people mention all the get-rich-quick aspects of a regular conversation, but none of those gossipers have the mind to take action and start trying out. That’s because they don’t know how to do it. If you invest, you always need knowledge, otherwise you’re just throwing money at the wall. So, to help you on your journey to understand the rise of this phenomenon, this audiobook has been put together.

    Creating a Future Distinct from the Past 
    In this new edition of his classic book, Peter Block offers an alternative to the increasing economic, relational, and ideological divides in our culture. To achieve a deeper sense of connection and belonging, we need to change the narrative from one of deficiencies and entitlement to one of possibility and generosity. This is how community is created, and Block shows how it's done with examples from neighborhoods, towns, and cities around the United States. To bring transformation into everyday life, Community outlines six conversations that create shared accountability and shows how to design systems that foster this sense of belonging.

    China today is visible everywhere - in the news, in the economic pressures battering America, in the workplace, and in every trip to the store. Provocative, timely, and essential, this dramatic account of china's growing dominance as an industrial super-power by journalist Ted C. Fishman explains how the profound shift in the global economic order has occurred - and why it already affects us all.How has an enormous country once hobbled by poverty and Communist ideology come to be the supercharged center of global capitalism? What does it mean that China now grows three times faster than the United States? That China uses 40 percent of the world's concrete and 25 percent of its steel? What is the global impact of 300 million rural Chinese walking off their farms and heading to the cities in the greatest migration in human history? Why do nearly all of the world's biggest companies now have large-scale operations in China? What does the corporate march into China mean for workers left behind in America, Europe, and the rest of the world?Meanwhile, what makes China's emerging corporations so dangerously competitive? What could happen when China will be able to manufacture nearly everything - computers, cars, jumbo jets, and pharmaceuticals - that the United States and Europe can, at perhaps half the cost? How do these developments reach around the world and straight into the lives of all Americans?These are ground-shaking questions, and China, Inc. provides answers.Veteran journalist and former commodities trader Ted C. Fishman paints a vivid picture of the megatrends radiating out of China. Fishman's account begins with the burgeoning output of China's vast low-cost factories and the swelling appetite of its 1.3 billion consumers, both of which are being driven by historically unprecedented infusions of foreign capital and technological know-how. Traveling through China's frenetic landscape of growth, Fishman visits the factories, markets, streets, stores, towns, and cities where the story of Chinese capitalism is being lived by one-fifth of all humanity. Fishman also draws on interviews with Chinese, American, and European workers, managers, and executives to show how China will force all of us to make big changes in how we think about ourselves as consumers, workers, citizens, and even as parents. The result is a richly engaging work of penetrating, up-to-the-minute reportage and brilliant analysis that will forever change how readers think about America's future.

Now, an education initiative called the Billion Oyster Project teaches public school students how to help bring them back to the city’s harbor, with the goal of restoring a billion oysters by 2035. NewsHour Weekend’s Ivette Feliciano has more.
