Summary

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.

    Dessert has sweetness and is refreshing, and sometimes it also has a salty taste or a combination of both sweet and salty. Some people deliberately don't eat dessert because avoiding the high calories contained in a piece of chocolate mousse, for example. 
    	This is true especially for diabetics, who are firmly discouraged from consuming dessert because of the high content of sugar and calories. 
    	This book will give you 23 Diabetic Friendly Dessert Recipes with different variations. Hopefully, they can be an inspiration for the reader who wants to develop his or her culinary skills while still staying healthy. Enjoy !

    First comes love, then comes marriage . . . and then comes That Baby.  
    Fall in love with the boy next door in this sweet romance series by USA Today Bestselling Author, Jillian Dodd.  
    That Boy:  
    You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits.   
    There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it’s windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He’s the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for.  
    Equally crush-worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth.  Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He’s the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me.  And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no.  
    One boy will give me my very first kiss.  
    One boy will teach me to make out.  
    One boy will take me to prom.  
    And, finally, one boy will ask me to marry him.  
    They will both be my best friends.  
    But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with.  
    Only one of them is That Boy.

    The gorgeous engagement ring on my finger mimics my happiness.  
    I feel so sparkly, glittery, and full of promise, because I absolutely know he's that boy.  
    The boy I want to marry. My prince. My happily ever after.  
    But then our pastor starts asking lots of questions.  
    His parents say I haven’t dealt with my past.   
    I have horrible wedding disaster dreams.  
    I can’t find the perfect dress.  
    I have to manipulate him to get my way.  
    An old boyfriend asks me to run away with him.  
    My best friend says I'm going to ruin everything.  
    And forever starts to sound like a really long time.  
    Which totally freaks me out and makes me question everything I know.  
    Should best friends get married?   
    Will my past affect our relationship?  
    Are my horrible dreams a warning?  
    Will I ever find a dress?  
    Could his sexiness be clouding my judgment?  
    Am I going to ruin everything?  
    Or is it just a case of cold feet?  
    And then I have to decide. Am I willing to give up on true love forever, or am I going to listen to my heart and marry him? 
    That Baby: 
    It’s amazing how a few little words can change your life.  
    It starts with a simple I love you.  
    It’s made official with I do.  
    And becomes incredible with I’m pregnant.

    "You know, Dr. Dan, that kid is from my planet."
    
    With in-depth descriptions of LEGO®-based therapy in action, this book explains how and why it helps to promote the development of social skills for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and related conditions. 
    
    Written by Daniel B. LeGoff, who pioneered the approach, this book comprises a series of case histories of children who participated in LEGO® therapy. It traces the development of the evidence-based approach, shares the clinical insights gained along the way and highlights the principles which should be at the core of all effective treatment and educational strategies for children with ASDs. The case histories have real practical value for those working with children with ASDs and also help to demonstrate the subtleties of the adult facilitation role for professionals running sessions.
