Summary

Claude M. Steiner (1935 to 2017) was a bestselling author and psychotherapist who pioneered the popular field of Transactional Analysis, which involves analysis of an individual’s social interactions as a basis for understanding behavior. First published in 1981 and now back in print with a new package, The Other Side of Power is the sequel to Dr. Steiner’s influential Scripts People Live and feels as relevant today as ever.  
 








Power—we all want it, we all need it. We feel its effects in our business, family, and personal relationships. In this accessible volume, Dr. Steiner shows how everyone can be powerful without being power-hungry. Instead of chasing the increasingly empty and improbably “conventional American power dream,” as Dr. Steiner puts it, the other side of power—our own personal strengths—can be used to get us what we want. This humane approach is not predicated upon the exploitation or manipulation of others, which leads to power for the few and not the many. In clear terms and with specific examples, the author shows how to draw instead upon individual strengths to neutralize and turn to advantage situations that could otherwise result in feeling of powerlessness. 
 








The Other Side of Power teaches us that once we understand the nature of power, we can learn to deal with it more comfortably and use it toward more rewarding personal and professional relationships. Dr. Steiner’s classic in psychological theory offers a meaningful and practical guide to harnessing the other side of power.

    The acclaimed first volume in feminist icon bell hooks' "Love Song to the Nation,”  All About Love is a revelation about what causes a polarized society and how to heal the divisions that cause suffering. Here is the truth about love, and inspiration to help us instill caring, compassion, and strength in our homes, schools, and workplaces. 
    “The word ‘love’ is most often defined as a noun, yet we would all love better if we used it as a verb,” writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in All About Love. Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, renowned scholar, cultural critic and feminist bell hooks offers a proactive new ethic for a society bereft with lovelessness--not the lack of romance, but the lack of care, compassion, and unity. People are divided, she declares, by society’s failure to provide a model for learning to love.  
    As bell hooks uses her incisive mind to explore the question “What is love?” her answers strike at both the mind and heart. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and for a nation. The Utne Reader declared bell hooks one of the “100 Visionaries Who Can Change Your Life.” All About Love is a powerful, timely affirmation of just how profoundly her revelations can change hearts and minds for the better.

    (BONUS! Includes Audio recordings of the actual routines in the book! All 700 of them!) Download Link found inside!It will give added insights on the overall game strategy to put back routines that were missed in standard teachings from  routine based systems, that only produced "Social Robots".The mistake of the old teachings is they had you memorize random routines, although were useful? Were simply out of context in the flow of conversations from the "sets" or targets. If you were naturally talking about Cars, you had to transition into talking about Cs and U smiles and gay cats? That's retarded!True routine game does not need you to force segue routines, just so you can use them! You have to roll with the punches (devastating blows at that) and flow naturally! The feeling should be as effortless as if you were doing Natural game or engaged in normal conversations with real people.This book has enough canned materials or templates that can be customized and reworded (highly encouraged) to fit exactly how you converse, and your own unique game styles and personality.As with the problem of those doing routines? They only had a miniscule collection of routines memorized.  They were obscure topics, out of the way in typical conversations, and not easy to implement in conversations. This is because the Seducer has no way to INTERNALIZE and have ready access to the materials! This is also why the audio recordings are included to serve as your Line Feeder, anytime, anywhere, even if you're doing another task! So you can practice even while sleeping and really absorb the materials through different modes of internalizations.This book series' purpose is not just to give you routines, but for you to ABSORB and actually have ready memory access to the materials whenever  you need them in the field! Over 700 hundred of them!
