Summary

“Refreshing, inspiring, and honest….One book I’m not going to be ‘giving up’ anytime soon.”—Nicole Williams, author of Earn What You’re Worth 
Give It Up! is author Mary Carlomagno’s inspiring chronicle of her 365 days spent learning to live better with less—when she decided to give up one modern convenience (eg: elevators) or indulgence (eg: alcohol) every month for a year. A joyous celebration of voluntary simplicity, Give It Up! offers a solution and a liberating new outlook to shopaholics, jaded consumers, and spirituality seekers overwhelmed by the unnecessary clutter in their lives, in the most uplifting self-help guide to better living since Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project.

    What do business owners, millionaires, writers, fortunetellers, religious leaders, psychologists, actors, singers and other famous, popular and powerful people, from many different countries around the world, are doing together in the same room? Why did I receive the invitation by cellphone and was prohibited of informing anyone about it, while being warned that this would be the most amazing meeting I’ve ever attended in my entire life? Honestly speaking, even though I didn’t really believed all the hype I received on this day, as I was very well-experienced in participating in close-door meetings and secret events like this one, I never imagined that this event alone would surely change my life forever and the way I live it. It changed the way I see myself, my reality, my dreams and my future. And I listened to everything carefully, as the feeling of being in presence of something amazing was rushing in my body, compelling me to write so fast that it was as if my pen was going to catch on fire.
    
     
    I was the only one in the group taking notes, so I thought that I would be stopped but it didn’t happen.
    
     
    I never shared this information with anyone before, because most people aren’t ready to understand it, but I’ve helped many people by using these principles.
    
     
    In this book, I present a resume of those theories. So, ”I wish above all things that you prosper and be in good health, even as your soul prospers” (3 John 1:2); “May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness - abundance” (Genesis 27:27-29). ”All you need to say is "Yes' if you mean yes, "No' if you mean no; anything more than this comes from the evil one" (Jeremiah 29:11). “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2); “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33) “and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).
    
     
    “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” (Romans 15:13).

    At least one out of four people prefers to avoid the limelight, tends to listen more than they speak, feels alone in large groups, and requires lots of private time to restore their energy. They're introverts, and here is the book to help them boost their confidence while learning strategies for successfully living in an extrovert world.After dispelling common myths about introverts-they're not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial--The Introvert Advantage explains the real issues. Introverts are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation-chitchat, phone calls, parties, office meetings-can easily become "too much."The Introvert Advantage dispels introverts' belief that something is wrong with them and instead helps them recognize their inner strengths-their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration. It helps readers understand introversion and shows them how to determine where they fall on the introvert/extrovert continuum. It provides tools to improve relationships with partners, kids, colleagues, and friends, offering dozens of tips, including 10 ways to talk less and communicate more, 8 ways to showcase your abilities at work, how to take a child's temperament temperature, and strategies for socializing. Finally, it shows how to not just survive, but thrive-how to take advantage of the introvert's special qualities to create a life that's just right for the introvert temperament, to discover new ways to expand their energy reserves, and even how, when necessary, to confidently become a temporary extrovert.

    The essential guide to kaizen—the art of making great and lasting change through small, steady steps—is now repackaged as an impulse paperback with a dazzling new cover that speaks to its proper positioning as a self-help/inspiration title that’s applicable to business as well.  Written by Dr. Robert Maurer, a psychologist on the staff of both the University of Washington School of Medicine and Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center, and an expert on kaizen who speaks and consults nationally, One Small Step Can Change Your Life is the gentle but potent way to effect change. It is for anyone who wants to lose weight. Or quit smoking. Or write a novel, start an exercise program, get out of debt, or conquer shyness and meet new people.  Beginning by outlining the all-important role that fear plays in every type of change—and kaizen’s ability to neutralize it by circumventing the brain’s built-in resistance to new behavior—Dr. Maurer then explains the 7 Small Steps: how to Think Small Thoughts, Take Small Actions, Solve Small Problems, and more. He shows how to perform mind sculpture—visualizing virtual change so that real change comes more naturally. Why small rewards lead to big returns by internalizing motivation. How great discoveries are made by paying attention to the little details most of us overlook. Rooted in the two-thousand-year-old wisdom of the Tao Te Ching—“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”—here is the way to change your life without fear, without failure, and to begin a new, easy regimen of continuous improvement.
