Summary

From the psychologist who coined the phrase "healthy dependency"—the first and only book that outlines its four key steps and helps readers understand and use these principles to achieve balance in love, in friendships, with family, and at work. 
The research is clear: Too much dependency in our relationships can be a bad thing, but too little dependency is just as bad. Healthy dependency—that flexible middle ground between rigid independence and unhealthy overdependence—is the ability to balance intimacy and autonomy, lean on others while maintaining a strong sense of self, and feel good (not guilty) about asking for help when you need it. 
The authors' studies confirm that healthy dependency brings a wealth of positive effects including: increased satisfaction in love relationshipsgreater likelihood of academic and career successbetter family communication and improved parenting skillsenhanced physical and psychological health 
This unique book, meticulously organized and laced throughout with case studies, anecdotes, relationship-style questionnaires, and research findings, draws from the authors' more than 20 years of research and clinical experience. A valuable guide to achieving healthy relationships between men and women of all ages, it will help readers identify where they are on the relationship continuum, and understand the skills they will need to address in order to strengthen their personal, professional, and family relationships.

    The Classic Text Annotated to Update Graham's Timeless Wisdom for Today's Market Conditions 
    The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham's philosophy of "value investing" -- which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies -- has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949. 
    Over the years, market developments have proven the wisdom of Graham's strategies. While preserving the integrity of Graham's original text, this revised edition includes updated commentary by noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, whose perspective incorporates the realities of today's market, draws parallels between Graham's examples and today's financial headlines, and gives readers a more thorough understanding of how to apply Graham's principles. 
    Vital and indispensable, this HarperBusiness Essentials edition of The Intelligent Investor is the most important book you will ever read on how to reach your financial goals.

    Life is full of ups and downs, successes and failures, love and betrayal, happiness and sadness, victories and losses. Within the turmoil of this journey that life has to offer, there are many lessons to obtain, and the difference in how much we can learn from them will define how well we’ve lived. “A Journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step” (Lao Tzu, Founder of Taoism)
    
     
    In this book it’s explained how we create our reality around us, which laws define it and how can we change everything in order to obtain positive results. It also talks about faith and the importance of it, by sharing stories that allow an understanding regarding the amount of power that a person with a strong faith can achieve. Finally there are also teachings about loving our enemies and the benefits of doing it. 
    
     
    The whole content, with roots in many different religious philosophies, even though based in modern and real life stories, intents to promote a higher conscience in the reader, regarding how much our thoughts and paradigms influence our reality, but, most of all, how powerful we can be when learning to love ourselves and appreciate our life.
