Best Mans Duties


Category: Mind Body and Spirit
Description: Being asked to be a best man is a great honour...but there's the terrifying prospect of giving the speech. There's the stag party to organise, but where do you start? Then there are all those other duties, not to mention the general support you'll need to give the groom. Pretty soon you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed and start to wonder how you can get out of it. Well I'm afraid that's generally not an option, as in this case the groom is like Don Corleone in the Godfather: he has made you an offer you can't refuse. This book will help you rise to the challenge. Written in an informal and lively style it guides you through all your duties from comprehensively exploring the options for the stag party to ensuring you are fully prepared to deliver a great speech on the day (to help with this the book includes 10 original, entertaining and inventive sample speeches). Its detailed guidance should ensure that anyone chosen to be best man will be able to fulfil the role with confidence and in doing so really enjoy the experience.

Unthinkable


Category: Mind Body and Spirit
Description: Our brains are far stranger than we think. We take it for granted that we can remember, feel emotions, navigate and empathise with others but what if these abilities were dramatically enhanced or weakened overnight? Helen Thomson is an award-winning science writer who has spent years travelling the world to track down incredibly rare brain disorders. In this book, she tells the story of nine extraordinary people - including a man who thinks he's a tiger and a doctor who feels the pain of others just by looking at them. This book delves into the histories of these conditions and explains how they affect the people's lives in unexpected, brilliant and alarming ways. Helen also looks at the power of the human brain and how it affects our consciousness, our emotions and our creativity. From learning how to hallucinate and make yourself happier in only a split-second to avoiding getting lost, seeing more of reality and confirming you're alive, this is a fascinating philosophy book that encourages you to think the unthinkable. It breaks down the science of the human mind into manageable New Scientist-style chunks and combines the witty observational style of Jon Ronson with the humanity and intelligence of Oliver Sacks.

Description: For over two decades, Spencer Johnson has been inspiring and entertaining millions with his simple, yet insightful stories of work and life that speak directly to the heart and soul. The Present is an engaging story of a young man's journey to adulthood, and his search for The Present, a mysterious and elusive gift he first hears about from a great old man. This Present, according to the old man, is 'the best present a person can receive.' Later, when the young boy becomes a young man, disillusioned with his work and his life, he returns to ask the old man, once again, to help him find The Present. The old man responds, ' Only you have the power to find The Present for yourself.' So the young man embarks on a tireless search for this magical gift that holds the secret to his personal happiness and business acumen. It is only after the young man has searched high and low and given up his relentless pursuit that he relaxes and discovers The Present - and all the promises it offers. The Present will help you focus on what will make you happy and successful in your work and in your personal life. Like the young man, you may find that it is the best gift you can ever give yourself.

Introducing Melanie Klein


Category: Mind Body and Spirit
Description: INTRODUCING guide to the pioneering child psychoanalyst. Born in Vienna in 1882, Melanie Klein became a pioneer in child psychoanalysis and developed several ground-breaking concepts about the nature and crucial importance of the early stages of infantile development. Although she was a devoted Freudian, many of her ideas were seen within the psychoanalytic movement as highly controversial, and this led to heated conflicts, particularly with Freud's daughter, Anna. Introducing Melanie Klein brilliantly explains Klein's ideas, and shows the importance of her startling discoveries which raised such opposition at the time and are only now being recognized for their explanatory power. Her concepts of the depressive position and the paranoid-schizoid position are now in common usage and her work has to be taken seriously by psychoanalysts the world over. She is also now important in many academic fields within the human sciences.

Jung


Category: Mind Body and Spirit
Description: Though he was a prolific writer and an original thinker of vast erudition, Jung lacked a gift for clear exposition and his ideas are less widely appreciated than they deserve. In this concise introduction, Anthony Stevens explains clearly the basic concepts of Jungian psychology: the collective unconscious, complex, archetype, shadow, persona, anima, animus, and the individuation of the Self. He examines Jung's views on such disparate subjects as myth, religion, alchemy, 'sychronicity', and the psychology of gender differences, and he devotes separate chapters to the stages of life, Jung's theory of psychological types, the interpretation of dreams, the practice of Jungian analysis, and to the unjust allegation that Jung was a Nazi sympathizer. Finally, he argues that Jung's visionary powers and profound spirituality have helped many to find an alternative set of values to the arid materialism prevailing in Western society.

Intelligence


Category: Mind Body and Spirit
Description: People value their powers of thinking and most of us are interested in why some people seem to drive a highly tuned Rolls Royce brain while others potter along with a merely serviceable Ford Fiesta. This Very Short Introduction describes what psychologists have discovered about how and why people differ in their thinking powers. The book takes readers from no knowledge about the science of human intelligence to a stage where they are able to make judgements for themselves about some of the key questions about human mental ability differences. Each chapter deals with a central issue that is both scientifically lively and of considerable general interest, and is structured around a diagram which is explained in the course of the chapter. The issues discussed include whether there are several different types of intelligence, whether intelligence differences are caused by genes or the environment, the biological basis of intelligence differences, and whether intelligence declines or increases as we grow older.

Thinking And Reasoning: A Very Short Introduction


Category: Mind Body and Spirit
Description: Our extraordinary capacity to reason and solve problems sets us aside from other animals, but our evolved thinking processes also leave us susceptibile to bias and error. The study of thinking and reasoning goes back to Aristotle, and was one of the first topics to be studied when psychology separated from philosophy. In this Very Short Introduction Jonathan Evans explores cognitive psychological approaches to understanding the nature of thinking and reasoning, problem solving, and decision making. He shows how our problem solving capabilities are hugely dependent on also having the imagination to ask the right questions, and the ability to see things from a completely new perspective. Beginning by considering the approaches of the behaviourists and the Gestalt psychologists, he moves on to modern explorations of thinking, including hypothetical thinking, conditionals, deduction, rationality, and intuition. Covering the role of past learning, IQ, and cognitive biases, Evans also discusses the idea that there may be two different ways of thinking, arising from our evolutionary history.

Psychoanalysis: A Very Short Introduction


Category: Mind Body and Spirit
Description: Since its inception, psychoanalysis has been hailed as a revolutionary theory of how the mind works, whilst some of its ideas such as the Oedipus complex have become part of everyday conversation. In Psychoanalysis: A Very Short Introduction, Daniel Pick offers a lucid, lively, and wide-ranging survey of psychoanalysis. This book offers the reader a flavour of what it might be like to enter treatment, and suggests the possible surprises that can await both analyst and patient, as well as the potential benefits. Yet whilst Freud's writings have shaped the way many of us understand dreams, desires, and destructiveness, as well as anxieties, blunders, and guilt, numerous critics have warned of the dangerous methods and time-bound assumptions of psychoanalysis, doubted the efficacy of its drawn-out methods, and dismissed its core claims as pseudo-science. Looking at modern ideas of the self, exploring the nature of unconscious aspects of relationships, and considering how psychoanalysis has evolved, Pick ponders the particular challenges now facing the analytic profession, and shows why psychoanalysis remains an important resource for investigating the mind, its creative functioning and many afflictions.

From the contemplative 'find beauty in rain' to the uplifting 'live every day like it's your birthday' the sincere 'be kind, for everyone is facing a hard battle' to the joyful 'let your hair down' Think Happy, Be Happy is charming and honest. Scattered throughout are playlists, simple recipes and quirky facts to complement the quotes.
