Summary

New York Times Bestseller 
From the New York Times bestselling author of An Altar in the World, Barbara Brown Taylor’s Learning to Walk in the Dark provides a way to find spirituality in those times when we don’t have all the answers. 
Taylor has become increasingly uncomfortable with our tendency to associate all that is good with lightness and all that is evil and dangerous with darkness. Doesn’t God work in the nighttime as well? In Learning to Walk in the Dark, Taylor asks us to put aside our fears and anxieties and to explore all that God has to teach us “in the dark.” She argues that we need to move away from our “solar spirituality” and ease our way into appreciating “lunar spirituality” (since, like the moon, our experience of the light waxes and wanes). Through darkness we find courage, we understand the world in new ways, and we feel God’s presence around us, guiding us through things seen and unseen. Often, it is while we are in the dark that we grow the most. 
With her characteristic charm and literary wisdom, Taylor is our guide through a spirituality of the nighttime, teaching us how to find our footing in times of uncertainty and giving us strength and hope to face all of life’s challenging moments.

  • Jim's Weight Training Guide "Superset Style!" (A Resistance Training Method For Weight loss Muscle Growth Endurance and Strength Training) - cover

    Jim's Weight Training Guide...

    Hi, I’m James Atkinson ("Jim" to my friends and readers). I’m a qualified fitness coach, competing bodybuilder and have a burning desire to help others reach their fitness goals.  
    I have been training for nearly 20 years and this training has taken me from long distance running to bodybuilding competition.  
    It is fair to say that I have learned the secrets of weight loss and fitness from my own personal journey. I have been fat, skinny and muscle bound throughout my fitness career and I really feel fulfillment from helping and advising others when it comes to their goals.  
    This book is all about the very well-known but little practiced (correctly) method of training known as “Supersets”.  
    My aim with this book is to give you the knowledge so you will:  
    • Be able to identify the workload that best suits your training goal.  
    • Effectively add supersets to your existing workouts.  
    • Use the method “full time”.  
    • Plan to use supersets to target your weaknesses.  
    • Be in a position to devise your own workout routine using this method.  
    From my first year of resistance training, I knew of the superset concept, but it was many years later that I started to use it to good effect in my training and, later, my clients' training, too.  
    It was through my own exercise and learning that I was able to fashion this method into something that could be used in all types of workout.  
    Whether you are looking to build muscle, burn fat or even train for endurance, you can:  
    • Use supersets to shorten your workouts.  
    • Increase intensity. 
    • Add volume to your training.  
    • Add variety to your average training session.  
    This book includes examples of full workout routines for different levels of fitness and different fitness goals. These can be followed directly from the book, but my main focus is to pass on my knowledge so you can adapt your training or tweak the featured routines to great effect.  
    I will wish you good look and I'll see you on the inside.  
    Let’s get started!

    Let’s face it, we all know people who are irrational. No matter how hard you try to reason with them, it never works. So what’s the solution? How do you talk to someone who’s out of control? What can you do with a boss who bullies, a spouse who yells, or a friend who frequently bursts into tears? 
    In his book, Just Listen, Mark Goulston shared his bestselling formula for getting through to the resistant people in your life. Now, in his breakthrough new book Talking to Crazy, he brings his communication magic to the most difficult group of all—the downright irrational. 
    As a psychiatrist, Goulston has seen his share of crazy and he knows from experience that you can’t simply argue it away. The key to handling irrational people is to learn to lean into the crazy—to empathize with it. That radically changes the dynamic and transforms you from a threat into an ally. Talking to Crazy explains this counterintuitive Sanity Cycle and reveals: 
    Why people act the way they doHow instinctive responses can exacerbate the situation—and what to do insteadWhen to confront a problem and when to walk awayHow to use a range of proven techniques including Time Travel, the Fish-bowl, and the Belly RollAnd much more 
    You can’t reason with unreasonable people—but you can reach them. This powerful and practical book shows you how.
