HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED IF LIFE IS TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING? This is a book about all the unwanted and unexpected moments in our lives. They surprise us, they blindside us. They shock us. They command our attention. Some bounce off us, other strike deep into our being. These moments are collision points between how we see life and how life actually is. These are lifeshocks. In her new book Sophie explains how lifeshocks awaken us. She offers her own deeply personal story as well as other case studies as a vehicle for bringing the theory and teachings to life. She focuses on three kinds of lifeshocks we all receive: limiting lifeshocks which challenge our arrogance and appetite for control; exposing lifeshocks which challenge our affectations and pretences; and evoking lifeshocks which challenge our closed-heartedness. This groundbreaking new book reveals how these lifeshocks can bring healing, transformation and peace.

Savor all four novellas in the Life Shocks Romances Collection. With 90+ reviews and an average of 4.6 stars, you'll find an enchanting story for every occasion: "ENSNARED...IS A RICH, ROMANTIC TALE...WELL WORTH THE READ." The two Falconer boys, Raphael and Michael, were named for the archangels. Lily Herald knows that they are anything but. At twenty-two, she married Raphael, the first Falconer boy. By twenty-five, she was divorced, having traded in her wedding ring for two near-fatal bullet wounds-the best damned trade of her life. No one, especially not Michael Falconer, knows why she's returned home, to the place of so many shared and painful memories, but he's determined to find out before she destroys what's left of his family. "FLAWED...HAS PLENTY OF ANGST, LUST AND HEARTBREAK TO KEEP YOU HOOKED." Aspiring actress Ariel Falconer is out of dreams. Disillusioned and burned-out, she heads on a lavish, all-expense-paid vacation, determined to enjoy herself one last time before facing up to the fact that life has dealt her a big flat zero. Professional beach volleyball player Jake Hunter is full of dreams. He holds a winning hand, but only if he can find a wealthy sponsor to finance his modest lifestyle while he trains for Olympic gold. Their mutual attraction is immediate and scorching, but neither is ready for the emotional complications of false impressions and clashing expectations. Can Ariel and Jake escape unscathed, or will their conflict shatter their dreams and the promise of love? "GRACED...IS SO LOVELY AND I TRULY DIDN'T PUT IT DOWN TILL IT WAS FINISHED." Noelle Langford's ambitions have always been bigger than the little town of Havre de Grace, but when her father's heart attack summons her home, she finds the town little changed, except that Connor Bradley, the high school nerd, is now the town's doctor, a Grade-A hunk, and a widower with two young children. Connor doesn't have time for distractions, not while juggling single parenthood and his clinic on five hours of sleep a night. He most certainly doesn't have time for Noelle, the high school flirt, who is prettier and more irresistible than he remembers. When her father's heart attack derails Connor's plans for his first Christmas without his wife, Noelle wants to save the day for his adorable children, but can she also find her way into Connor's guarded heart? "HAUNTED...IS SWEET BUT NOT CHEESY, SEXY BUT NOT DIRTY, AND SHORT BUT COMPLETELY FULL." Holly Langford has given up on love, but the Christmas season unexpectedly ignites her bleak and solitary life with three men who represent her past, her present, and her future. Peter Warren, her high school and college sweetheart, who shattered her heart but rules her dreams... James Kerrigan, the principal of Havre de Grace Elementary School and her boss... Brandon Smith, the dashing New York City lawyer, who promises an escape from the confines of her small town life... Which man offers the gift of true love and happily ever after?

The self-published sensation and UK bestseller that has helped thousands touched by cancer. “I have cancer. Cancer does not have me.” Sophie Sabbage was forty-eight years old, happily married, and mother to a four-year-old daughter when she was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. Since that shocking diagnosis, she has been on a remarkable journey of healing and renewal that has reshaped her life—for the better. The Cancer Whisperer chronicles Sophie’s extraordinary relationship with cancer and the very effective methods she has used for dealing with her fear, anger, denial, and grief. The Brené Brown of cancer, Sophie empowers readers to reject the traditional adversarial relationship with cancer by teaching us how to listen to it; how to be healed by it as well as how to seek to cure it; and how to be emotionally free even when we are physically curtailed. Beautifully and poignantly written, The Cancer Whisperer encourages cancer patients to: • Direct their own treatment while preserving their personhood in a system that tends to see them as patients more than people. • Engage with fear, anger, and grief in healthy and healing ways instead of toughing it out, trying to be falsely positive, or collapsing into despair. • Radically shift from being a cancer victim to a cancer listener—fostering an understanding of cancer as a symptom of other underlying causes and engaging with whatever changes it calls on them to make. As authentic as it is revolutionary, The Cancer Whisperer calls for an end to “the war on cancer” and the start of a more transformative dialogue with the disease.

Continue your journey through the alphabet of love with Inflamed, Jilted, Kindled, and Lured. Meet sexy firefighters, brooding ballet dancers, and travel through Italy's romantic wine country in this "perfect blend of heartache, humor, heat, and happiness..." INFLAMED Debra Martinez doesn’t believe in happy endings. Even if she did, she knows she doesn’t deserve one, not after betraying her best friend in the worst possible way. Eight years into single parenthood, her life is a grind of exhaustion in between spikes of fatigue—an endless struggle to make ends meet—until Sean Orr, Havre de Grace’s newest firefighter, shows her and her son, Aidan, a new and beautiful kind of “normal.” But the happiness can’t last—not for Sean who is on the run from his past. When it catches up with him, will it bring Debra’s fragile normality crashing down around her, or will she find the strength to define her own happy ending? JILTED Jon Seifer's on top of the world with an undergraduate degree from a top college, a thriving alternative health business, and a breathtaking girlfriend, Anjali Bhanot. Unfortunately, Anjali was, at birth, promised in marriage to a dashing man who holds a medical degree from Harvard Medical School, works as a cardiac surgeon at Mayo Clinic, and hails from the lofty Brahmin caste, just like Anjali. Everyone agrees—he’s perfect for her. And why would Anjali—brilliant, talented, and an overachiever from birth—settle for anything less than perfection? KINDLED Nicholas Dragov, a principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, is the bad boy of ballet. On stage, his grand jeté defies the laws of physics and gravity. Off stage, he lavishes money on fast cars and fast women. His small-town roots are abandoned in the past, until a career-ending injury traps him back home, in the care of the woman who broke his heart. Marisa Chantilly was Nicholas’s first dance partner, but he alone made it onto the world stage. In the eight years since they have seen each other, she has married, become pregnant, a widow, and a mother. Now, Nicholas is home, his beautiful body broken, and his attitude darker and deeper than a volcanic crater. A massage therapist, she knows how to work with sports injuries, but no amount of training or professionalism can help her endure the man who abandoned her when she needed him most. LURED When an accident cuts short Dr. Shannon Larson’s bicycle tour through Italy, she’s rescued by a brusque, career-driven American lawyer—the same kind of man who once broke her heart. A week in Brandon Smith’s company, however, convinces her that the similarities are superficial. Her Italian fling with Brandon becomes the highlight of her life, but can the glow of their holiday romance survive the harsh light of reality when they return to America and find themselves on opposite sides of the courtroom?

Meet the girl-next-door who hides a devastating secret, join a war veteran's struggle to find happiness in spite of PTSD, and unravel the tangle of deception between two people who are not what they seem in this "perfect blend of heartache, humor, heat, and happiness..." MALIGNED Tom Lancaster, a single father not looking for a relationship, is reluctantly roped into investigating an escort responsible for wrecking his sister’s marriage, but instead of a sly and seductive siren, he meets the pretty girl-next-door. Sheridan is an aspiring college graduate and influential fashion blogger. She also has secrets—shameful secrets, precious secrets—and a past that could shatter her carefree present and promising future. When Tom discovers Sheridan’s secrets, will he trust only the facts he can see, hear, and touch, or will he be the first and only man to accept her for anything and everything she is? NURTURED High-flying corporate lawyer, Nicole Lefton, does not have any space or time in her life for distractions, but a car accident saddles her with the unexpected company of a large dog and the attentions of a handsome vet. She refuses to allow her casual fling with Dr. Rico Vargas to blossom into something deeper, but Rico wears down her formidable emotional defenses with his wit and his gentleness. Nicole is on the cusp of saying yes to love when a crisis in Rico’s family awakens the trauma of Nicole’s past and shatters her growing trust in Rico. Will the fragile foundations of their love survive the lingering shadows of Nicole’s broken childhood? OWNED Marie Vargas had always believed that her love for Phil Casteen was meant to last forever, but that was before he divorced her. Not even winning a $1,000,000 lottery fills the emptiness in her life. Eager for a new beginning, she takes a long-awaited Key West vacation, but Phil is already there, and he’s carved a new life for himself—a life that would be even better if he got his hands on his share of her winnings. Vulnerable and still in love, Marie is easy prey, but what does Phil really want from her? Will their unexpected reunion offer Marie the emotional closure she needs, reopen wounds that haven’t fully healed, or shatter her heart beyond repair? PRIZED Rio Loren, scion of the jet-setting Loren family, is too elegant and civilized for revenge. All he wants from his erstwhile girlfriend, Cixi, is the blue diamond pendant she stole from him, even if he has to personally hunt her down and snatch it out of her thieving, faithless hands. Cixi, the street-waif-turned-supermodel, is too busy fending off dozens of admirers to pander to the wounded egos of former boyfriends. Unless, of course, that boyfriend happens to own the diamond ring and earrings that complement her blue diamond pendant, the prize of her jewelry collection. The precious gems, however, are the lowest stakes in a game of wits, which rapidly escalates into a battle to stay alive, for Cixi is more than a feel-good Cinderella story, and Rio is more than a spoiled billionaire’s son. When the facades crumble and layers peel back, when nothing is left between them except the raw, ugly truth of mutual betrayal, will they survive?

Quicklet on Ruby K. Payne's A Framework for Understanding Poverty (CliffNotes-like Summary)

ABOUT THE BOOK A Framework for Understanding Poverty provides important insight into the nation’s ongoing difficulty educating poor children. Students from impoverished backgrounds at all levels of America’s education system achieve success at lower rates than students who are not impoverished. The author, Ruby Payne, suggests that individuals who have experienced generational poverty—that is, individuals whose parents also grew up in poverty—behave in certain characteristics ways that put them at a disadvantage in institutional settings like public school. Payne defines generational poverty as different from “situational poverty,” that is the condition of poverty caused by lack of resources due to a particular event like death, chronic illness, or divorce. The idea is that raising oneself out of situational poverty is easier that raising oneself out of generational poverty. MEET THE AUTHOR Jeff Davis is a life long educator with a Ph.D. in English Studies who has taught at both the high school and university levels. He is also an artist and an amateur anthropologist who is a proponent of “First Art,” that art which our ancient ancestors practiced some 30,000 years ago and even earlier. His most recent book, The First-Generation Student Experience, expanded the college student-affairs field describing the challenges of contemporary nontraditional students. Related to his interest in evolutionary biology, he is currently working on a writing pedagogy book that argues that motivation is the most important dimension of the creative process, even more important than skill and native ability. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Payne establishes her working definition of poverty as “the extent to which an individual does without resources” such as financial, emotional, mental, spiritual, physical, support systems, relationships/role models, and knowledge of hidden rules (8). The challenge for the school or work setting is to analyze and understand the available resources before problem solving and to utilize opportunities that impact the non-financial resources. She describes “three aspects of language: registers of language, discourse patterns, and story structure (27). Registers of language include frozen, formal, consultative, casual, and intimate. Dropping down one register in the same conversation is socially acceptable; dropping down two registers is socially offensive. Buy a copy to keep reading!

Gewinner der Silver Medal des Axiom Business Book Award 2016 Auf der Liste der Bloomberg Best Books 2016 Mit einem exklusiven Vorwort von Star-Ökonom Nouriel Roubini $uper-hubs enthüllt, wie die Finanzelite und ihre mächtigen Netzwerke das Weltgeschehen – und damit unser aller Leben – beherrschen. Super-hubs sind die am besten vernetzten Knotenpunkte innerhalb des Finanznetzwerks, wie Milliardär George Soros, JP-Morgan-Chef Jamie Dimon und Blackrock-Boss Larry Fink. Ihre persönlichen Beziehungen und globalen Netzwerke verleihen ihnen finanzielle, wirtschaftliche und politische "Super-Macht". Mit ihren Entscheidungen bewegen sie täglich Billionen auf den Finanzmärkten und haben somit direkten Einfluss auf Industrien, Arbeitsplätze, Wechselkurse, Rohstoffe oder sogar den Preis unserer Lebensmittel. Als Insiderin der Hochfinanz nimmt Sandra Navidi Sie mit hinter die Kulissen dieses Mikrokosmos der Macht: zum Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos, zum Internationalen Währungsfonds, zu Thinktanks, Benefizgalas und glamourösen Partys. Sie beleuchtet die Menschen, die hinter abstrakten Institutionen und Billionen an Kapital stehen, ihr Erfolgsgeheimnis, ihre privilegierte Existenz und die Auswirkungen auf unser Finanzsystem und damit auch auf die Zukunft unserer Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Erstmals überhaupt gibt Sandra Navidi damit einen Einblick in die sonst hermetisch abgeriegelte Machtelite.

Eine junge mexikanische Jüdin, ein alter Historiker und ein ehemaliger Ameisenzeichner und Wolkenspezialist treffen aufeinander – und die Konturen der Welt beginnen sich aufzulösen. Tatiana hat es eher zufällig aus Mexiko-Stadt nach Berlin verschlagen. Empfindsam für historisch belastete Orte wie für Wetterphänomene, durchstreift sie auf einsamen Spaziergängen die Stadt und beginnt schließlich, die Notizen des Stadthistorikers Weiss zu transkribieren. Über ihn trifft sie auf den Meteorologen Jonas Krantz, der schon als Kind in der DDR in der Flüchtigkeit der Wolken über Berlin Trost fand. Doch jeder der drei ist für eine Freundschaft zu spröde, und lebendiger als die Menschen, denen Tatiana begegnet, sind für sie die Geister Berlins: Von einer überfüllten U- Bahn, in der Hitler als alte Frau verkleidet erscheint, über eine unterirdische Kegelbahn der Gestapo, an deren Wände Spielstände aus längst vergangenen Partien angeschrieben sind, bis zu einem unerklärlichen Nebel, der alles verschluckt, führt uns Chloe Aridjis durch eine unruhige Stadt und verwischt die Linien zwischen Wirklichkeit und Vorstellung. Mit traumlogischem Surrealismus lässt Buch der Wolken uns spüren, dass Städte, genau wie Menschen, ihrer Vergangenheit nicht entkommen können.
