Summary

Brilliant illustrated guide to the best-known and most controversial continental philosopher of the latter 20th century. Jacques Derrida is the most famous philosopher of the late 20th century. Yet Derrida has undermined the rules of philosophy, rejected its methods, broken its procedures and contaminated it with literary styles of writing. Derrida's philosophy is a puzzling array of oblique, deviant and yet rigorous tactics for destabilizing texts, meanings and identities. 'Deconstruction', as these strategies have been called, is reviled and celebrated in equal measure. Introducing Derrida introduces and explains his work, taking us on an intellectual adventure that disturbs some of our most comfortable habits of thought.

    If you want to survive and thrive in today’s game, you’ve got to level up, buttercup. You need to 10X what you’re already doing. That means becoming ten times smarter. Ten times better at what you do. You need to buckle down with ten times the focus, holding strong with ten times the grit.If you aren’t willing to do what it takes to 10X your author business (and to remember that it is a business, complete with sensible business rules), you’ll perish as soon as you begin.But the good news is that if you are willing to become a 10X author, you’ll reap a lot more than ten times the reward. The sad truth is that very few people are willing to work as hard as it takes to realize their dreams, and that leaves room for others to realize them instead.

    A genre-defying debut memoir of insomnia by Betty Trask Prize-winner and one of our most singular stylists, Samantha Harvey. 
    In 2016, Samantha Harvey began to lose sleep. She tried everything to appease her wakefulness: from medication to therapy, changes in her diet to changes in her living arrangements. Nothing seemed to help. 
    The Shapeless Unease is Harvey’s darkly funny and deeply intelligent anatomy of her insomnia, an immersive interior monologue of a year without one of the most basic human needs. Original and profound, and narrated with a lucid breathlessness, this is a startlingly insightful exploration of memory, writing and influence, death and the will to survive, from “this generation’s Virginia Woolf” (Telegraph).

    The Thyroid Diet - Manage Your...

    From patient advocate Mary Shomon, author of Living Well With Hypothyroidism, here is the first book to tackle the weight factors specific to thyroid patients and detail a conventional and alternative plan for lasting weight loss. 
    An estimated 10 million Americans have been diagnosed with thyroid disease—most of them women—and for the majority of them, losing weight is mentioned time and time again as a primary concern and chief frustration—a challenge made more difficult due to the metabolic slowdown of a malfunctioning thyroid gland. For these thyroid patients, treatment alone doesn't seem to resolve weight problems. Further, they may struggle with raising basic metabolism, resolving underlying nutritional deficiencies, treating depression and correcting brain chemistry imbalances, reducing stress, and combating insulin resistance. 
    The Thyroid Diet will identify these factors that inhibit a thyroid patient's ability to lose weight, and offer solutions—both conventional and alternative—to help. It will discuss optimal dietary changes, including how a thyroid sufferer should focus on a low-glycemic, high-fibre, low-calorie diet, eaten as smaller, more frequent meals to balance blood sugar. The Thyroid Diet addresses the use of various herbs, nutritional supplements, and prescription weight loss drugs, outlining the necessity of exercise, and drawing together all information into an integrated diet and exercise plan. It contains several different eating plans, food lists, and a set of delicious and healthy gourmet recipes. With handy worksheets to use in weight loss tracking, and a special resource section featuring websites, books, and support groups, here is vital help for the millions of thyroid patients dealing with weight problems. 
    Mary Shomon has been praised by doctors around the country for her medical knowledge and sensitivity to patients' needs. She will be receiving similar blurbs for this new book. There are no other books on controlling your weight problems if you have a thyroid condition, yet over 40% of overweight people have evidence of a thyroid condition, and the weight loss problems facing them are unique and need a specific approach.

    FOREWORD by Dr. Myles Munroe
     
    “UNDERSTANDING EMOTIONAL HEALING” is an erudite, eloquent, and immensely thought-provoking work that gets to the heart of the deepest struggles and aspirations of the human heart and addresses the contemporary culture of despair and loneliness gripping our present generation. 
     
    UNDERSTANDING EMOTIONAL HEALING is indispensable reading for anyone who wants to understand how to overcome the mystery of spiritual and emotional healing in areas of our lives that we keep suppressed. This is a profound authoritative work which spans the wisdom of the ages and yet breaks new ground in its approach to understanding the modern man. This book will possibly become a classic in this and the next generation. 
     
    This exceptional work by Steve & Jacob Lapp is one of the most profound, practical, principle-centered approaches to this subject of True Emotional Healing I have read in a long time. The author’s approach to this timely issue brings a fresh breath of air that captivates the heart, engages the mind and inspires the spirit of the reader. 
     
    The title of this book alone "UNDERSTANDING EMOTIONAL HEALING” should make it a must read for all humanity. The cultural hopelessness and disillusionment among the nations makes this book more valuable than ever. There is not a race, culture, or group of people on the planet who are not being devastated by the attack on their emotional stability. 
     
    The author’s ability to leap over complicated theological and metaphysical jargon and reduce complex theories to simple practical principles that the least among us can understand is amazing. 
     
    This work will challenge the intellectual while embracing the laymen as it dismantles the mysteries of the soul search of mankind and delivers the profound in simplicity. 
     
    Steve and Jacob’s approach awakens in the reader the untapped inhibiters that retard our personal development and their antidotes empower us to rise above these self-defeating, self-limiting factors to a life of exploits in spiritual, mental and emotional advancement. 
     
    The authors also integrate into each chapter the time-tested precepts giving each principle a practical application to life making the entire process people-friendly. 
     
    UNDERSTANDING EMOTIONAL HEALING is pregnant with wisdom and powerful principles and I enjoyed the mind-expanding experience of this exciting work. I admonish you to plunge into this ocean of knowledge and watch your life change for the better.
