Summary

Using his wit, his rare ability to see through the lies that we sane human beings tell each other in order to hide our selfishness, and his courage to call a spade a spade, which is without a doubt rarely found in someone who makes a living from speaking or writing, Mokokoma Mokhonoana, author of Divided & Conquered and writer of not a few worldview-altering aphorisms, lucidly explores the use and misuse of children by human beings and things such as Mother Nature, religions and churches, countries, and companies. 
Among other things, Mokokoma, using brief and potent sentences, touches on the real reason or reasons why you were intentionally brought into this troubled world. Or why your mother, if you were conceived unintentionally, did not order, ask, or beg someone to end your life way before you had to be pushed or pulled out of her womb.

    Negotiating the Impossible - How...

    Some negotiations are easy. Others are more difficult. And then there are situations that seem completely hopeless. Conflict is escalating, people are getting aggressive, and no one is willing to back down. And to top it off, you have little power or other resources to work with. Harvard professor and negotiation adviser Deepak Malhotra shows how to defuse even the most potentially explosive situations and to find success when things seem impossible.Malhotra identifies three broad approaches for breaking deadlocks and resolving conflicts, and draws out scores of actionable lessons using behind-the-scenes stories of fascinating real-life negotiations, including drafting of the US Constitution, resolving the Cuban Missile Crisis, ending bitter disputes in the NFL and NHL, and beating the odds in complex business situations. But he also shows how these same principles and tactics can be applied in everyday life, whether you are making corporate deals, negotiating job offers, resolving business disputes, tackling obstacles in personal relationships, or even negotiating with children.As Malhotra reminds us, regardless of the context or which issues are on the table, negotiation is always, fundamentally, about human interaction. No matter how high the stakes or how protracted the dispute, the object of negotiation is to engage with other human beings in a way that leads to better understandings and agreements. The principles and strategies in this book will help you do this more effectively in every situation.

    This book summary and analysis was created for individuals who want to extract the essential contents and are too busy to go through the full version. This book is not intended to replace the original book. Instead, we highly encourage you to buy the full version.
     
    Renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics Daniel Kahneman shows us how the mind has two systems that drive how we think. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, the first system—System 1—is the fast, intuitive, and emotional system while the second system—System 2—is the slower, more deliberate, and logical system. Kahneman shows the impact of overconfidence in making decisions, the difficulties of predicting happiness in the future, and the profound effect of having cognitive biases. These can be understood based on how the two systems control our judgments and decisions.
     
    Kahneman shows us when our intuitions can be helpful and when it can’t as well as how we can get the benefits of slow thinking. He gives us practical insights into how we make our choices both in business and in our personal lives as well as what techniques we can use in order to protect ourselves against the lapses that can cause us trouble. Given the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is a book that would certainly affect how we think and hows we live our lives.

    Internationally bestselling author and relationship expert Arielle Ford offers the keys to re-discovering love, passion, respect, and renewed commitment, years after the simple act of falling in love and getting married. 
    It’s one thing to fall in love and get married. It is quite another thing to have a marriage you love. This is the true purpose of Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate. 
    Author of the international bestseller The Soulmate Secret, Arielle Ford unlocks the wisdom learned in her own marriage along with expertise gleaned from friends and experts such as Harville Hendrix, John Gray, Dr. Helen Fisher, Neale Donald Walsch, and Marianne Williamson, to help readers find a happy middle ground between the rare, precious, and unattainable romantic notion of love, and the reality that happens when restlessness, anger, or disappointment set in and act as a stubborn barrier to happiness and fulfillment. 
    Turn Your Mate into Your Soulmate explores and reveals:   What love really is and is not, and how to infuse your life with richer, fulfilling love.   Why we yearn to be connected to another person;   Our soul and our sacred contracts around love.   Why giving up perfectionism is the key to happiness.   The purpose and benefits of marriage.   Components of a healthy relationship.   Moving beyond ourselves to infuse our relationships with God/Spirit/devotion.   Breathing new life into old love by kick-starting the fun;   Why changing partners may not be the answer and why re-envisioning the partner you have can be the path to happiness. 
    Arielle lays the groundwork for the purpose and work needed for a healthy relationship, proving that marriage is not as simple as Happily Ever After—but that real love can be even better.
