Summary

Our collective yearning to love and to be loved has childhood roots that lie deep within the hearts of people of all ages, cultures, faiths, and backgrounds everywhere on our planet. Our deep human desire for love is a childhood phenomenon that follows us into adulthood and is our main drive for getting married and having a lifelong companion. 
 
We all have heard the saying, "If you can't love yourself, you can't love anyone else," yet we are not born knowing how to love ourselves or anyone else. Our capacity to love, as well as our impairments around love, grows out of the first interactions with our parents. 
 
Learning about love is just like learning a language: If we learn it in our homes when we are children, it becomes our native language that we use to express ourselves effortlessly. For most of us, love becomes a second language that we need to consciously learn as adults. Having come to the United States as a teenager from my native country of Iran, I know all too well that the later in our adult life we learn to speak a language, the harder it is to learn and the heavier our accent! 
 
I never expected to write a book about love because I have been struggling with it all my life. As much as I genuinely desired to love, I was miserably unhappy in my marriage. This book was born out of the dissolution of my marriage, which compelled me to explore the mysteries of love relationships.
 
In a world that seems to have gone mad with mass shootings and public incivility, I share my life story to inspire hope that the foundation of love is built on the shoulders of loving parents. The essence of this book is to remind us all about the importance of love in all aspects of our lives, which is the foundation for a happy life that I plan to teach my children.
 
Experiencing love may seem like a straightforward thing, but it is a skill that has to be acquired. School systems do not teach children about the most important topic in life, which is love. This must be learned in our homes. True love begins in our homes with our parents—if we were lucky—or with our children once we become aware of our enormous responsibility as parents. No parent can adequately articulate the experience of holding his or her child.
 
The future of the world depends on parents' ability to teach their children how to become loving and respectful human beings, because all distressing habits of humankind are acquired after birth. There is nothing more powerful than the power of love to change the world by raising the next generation of our civilization who will not allow race to disconnect them, religion to separate them, or wealth to classify them. One mistake we can make is thinking that we, as parents, cannot make a difference.

    How do the rich get rich? An updated edition of the “remarkable” New York Times bestseller, based on two decades of research (The Washington Post).   Most of the truly wealthy in the United States don’t live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue. They live next door.   America’s wealthy seldom get that way through an inheritance or an advanced degree. They bargain-shop for used cars, raise children who don’t realize how rich their families are, and reject a lifestyle of flashy exhibitionism and competitive spending. In fact, the glamorous people many of us think of as “rich” are actually a tiny minority of America’s truly wealthy citizens—and behave quite differently than the majority.   At the time of its first publication, The Millionaire Next Door was a groundbreaking examination of America’s rich—exposing for the first time the seven common qualities that appear over and over among this exclusive demographic. This edition includes a new foreword by Dr. Thomas J. Stanley—updating the original content in the context of the financial crash and the twenty-first century.   “Their surprising results reveal fundamental qualities of this group that are diametrically opposed to today’s earn-and-consume culture.” —Library Journal

    “Her colorful and descriptive narrative lays out one of the classic truths of sales: Sell yourself sincerely before trying to sell anything else” (The Home-Based CEO).  Sell without Selling is a delightful fable that tackles the issue many salespeople face daily—in their hearts they hate to sell. It instantly engages anyone who sells with the story of a young business student named Christina and her struggle to learn a way to sell with ease. In the Krenker Business School of Practical Sales Advice, she learns that while sales methods have changed, good sales tactics have not. There, she learns to say goodbye to the hard sell and opens her eyes and ears to selling without selling.   Entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs, small-business owners, sales executives, managers, and sales people need this highly effective yet simple story to show them how to create more sales while giving up the sales “tricks” that won’t work with today’s savvy buyers. Times have changed and to generate sales, you must, too! What you’re about to read might buck the trend, but it sure works! Find out for yourself. Buy and read Sell without Selling today!   Praise for Terri Levine’s Turbo Charge:   “This brilliant must-read book provides the keys to the new era. It’s priceless for those who want to transform their business as a Heart-repreneur®.” —Dr. Joe Vitale, author of Attract Money Now   “It is, simply stated, the best book on entrepreneurship that I have ever read. When Terri speaks hearts are opened.” —Forrest Willett, #1-bestselling author of Baseballs Don’t Bounce

    In May 1908 William James, a gifted and popular lecturer, delivered a series of eight Hibbert Lectures at Manchester College, Oxford, on “The Present Situation in Philosophy.” These were published in 1909 as "A Pluralistic Universe."
    
    In “A Pluralistic Universe” James captures a new philosophic vision, at once intimate and realistic. He shares with his readers a view of the universe that is fresh, active, and novel. He defends the mystical and anti-pragmatic view that concepts distort rather than reveal reality. 
    The message conveyed is as relevant today as it was in his time.
