    Some people believe they are absolutely typical of their sun sign, while others see little of themselves in the descriptions given in most astrology books.Written for beginners as well as astrology students, this informative volume explains why one sun sign can include many different personalities. There are many possible astrological reasons for the diversification within each sign, but this book demonstrates two main factors that are easy for a complete beginner in astrology to understand and to use: decans and dwads. The system presented here is simple and effective and does not require learning the complexities of chart interpretation.Each sign of the zodiac can be divided into three sections called decans, and each decan can be divided into four dwads. These divisions can lead to many variations in personalities of people born under a specific sign, including those between twins. Determine your decan and dwad on the easy-to-use tables provided, then see what their interpretations say about your life. Find out how to progress your sun sign to check out trends and events for any year of your life. After you've evaluated yourself, you can enjoy doing the same for your family and friends.Although perfect for beginners, the simplicity of this approach makes it a handy tool for working astrologers and includes information on gender, elements, and qualities and how they relate to the sun sign.

    Born under a bad sign? Of course you were, we all were. In this case Virgo the Virgin, the zodiac’s uber nitpicker. Everyone knows their bright starry self, but the Darkside Zodiac reveals what you are like on the bad days. You will deny it all, being Virgo, and back up your denial with a truckload of incontrovertible data; but secretly you know it’s true and will be forced to scourge your soul with metaphorical clorox. Bliss.  
    What can you expect in this short, yet vitriol-packed e-volume? Prepare to break bad. Here’s the checklist  (partial - you think we give this stuff away?) 
    * Bitch factor? You got it. 
    Likewise
    * Annoying habits 
    * Deadly sin of choice 
    * Your love life. Hah. 
    * Your criminal career 
    * Your road rage
    
    Plus clever charts showing just how incompatible you are with everybody else in every conceivable aspect of life. Of course it’s not your fault. It never is. Find out which planet/s is/are responsible for your cosmic awfulness, and blame it/them. And you get to find out who famously shares your sector of the darkness, just so you have a role model if you begin to stray towards the light.  
    Until now only available to the discerning in tree-based form, the darkside has gone e-side so you can read all about your dark self without having to lift a finger to turn the page. Buy one for yourself (and wallow in delicious shame) or, even better, for your friends/enemies/frenemies/office nemesis and send it to them anonymously. That would be very darkside.

    A treasure trove of inspiration and guidance from the minister and million-selling author of The Power of Positive Thinking.   Norman Vincent Peale’s self-help phenomenon The Power of Positive Thinking continues to transform countless lives. The volumes collected here serve to expand and deepen Dr. Peale’s life-changing philosophy of positivity.  Have a Great Day: The philosopher, self-help innovator, and minister offers inspiration for every day of the year with an uplifting volume of positive thought to nourish our souls and spirits. From profound “thought conditioners” accentuating the everyday positive to “spirit lifters” devised to help us soar above our troubles, Dr. Peale’s affirmations are “daily vitamins” for our mental and spiritual health.  Positive Imaging: Building on Dr. Peale’s principles of constructive affirmation, this step-by-step guide shows you how to utilize a potent mental process called “imaging.” Keeping a clear and vivid picture of a desired goal in your mind until it becomes part of your subconscious will help you break through the barriers that block you from achieving harmony, happiness, and success—and allow you to actualize your objectives by releasing previously untapped inner energies.  The Positive Power of Jesus Christ: The revered pastor of the world-famous Marble Collegiate Church proclaims his unshakable faith in Christ the Savior through inspiring true stories of healing and hope. In sharing the ways in which his life and the lives of others have been profoundly touched and transformed by Jesus, Dr. Peale makes plain how “positive thinking really means a faith attitude . . . [and] only faith can turn the life around.”

    From the bestselling author of A More Beautiful Question, hundreds of big and small questions that harness the magic of inquiry to tackle challenges we all face--at work, in our relationships, and beyond. 
      
    When confronted with almost any demanding situation, the act of questioning can help guide us to smart decisions. By asking questions, we can analyze, learn, and move forward in the face of uncertainty. But "questionologist" Warren Berger says that the questions must be the right ones; the ones that cut to the heart of complexity or enable us to see an old problem in a fresh way. 
      
    In The Book of Beautiful Questions, Berger shares illuminating stories and compelling research on the power of inquiry. Drawn from the insights and expertise of psychologists, innovators, effective leaders, and some of the world's foremost creative thinkers, he presents the essential questions readers need to make the best choices when it truly counts, with a particular focus in four key areas: decision-making, creativity, leadership, and relationships. 
      
    The powerful questions in this book can help you: 
    -        Identify opportunities in your career or industry 
    -        Generate fresh ideas in business or in your own creative pursuits 
    -        Check your biases so you can make better judgments and decisions 
    -        Do a better job of communicating and connecting with the people around you 
      
    Thoughtful, provocative, and actionable, these beautiful questions can be applied immediately to bring about change in your work or your everyday life.
