A paradigm-shifting, instant classic in the making that challenges our assumptions about change by encouraging us to understand and embrace our resistance to it. We all have something we want to change about ourselves. But whether it's quitting smoking, losing weight, or breaking some common bad habit or negative behavior pattern, we feel a sense of failure when we don't succeed. This often sets off a cascade of negative feelings and discouragement, making it even harder to change. The voice in our head tells us: Why bother? Successful change depends far more on understanding why we don't change, psychotherapist and sociologist Ross Ellenhorn insists. His decades-long career as a pioneer in helping people overcome extreme psychiatric experiences and problematic substance use issues--especially those whom the behavioral healthcare system has failed--especially those whom the mental healthcare system has failed--has lead him to develop an effective, long-term method to achieve transformation, from the simplest shifts to the most profound. In How We Change, Ellenhorn looks to the evolutionary imperatives driving us. We are wired to double down on the familiar because of what he calls the Fear of Hope--the act of protecting ourselves from further disappointment. He identifies the "10 Reasons Not to Change" to help us see why we behave the way we do, making it clear that there is nothing broken inside us--it's how we're built. By addressing this little known reality, he gives us hope and helps us work toward the change we seek. Ellenhorn speaks to the core of our insecurities and fears about ourselves, with a humor and kindness. By turning our judgements about self-destructive behaviors into curious questions about them, he teaches us to think about our actions to discover what we truly want--even if we're going about getting it in the wrong way. How We Change is a brilliant approach that will forever alter our perspective--and help us achieve the transformation we truly seek.

“One of the most important books I’ve ever read—an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.” – Bill Gates “Hans Rosling tells thestory of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readershow to see it clearly.” —Melinda Gates Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. When asked simple questions about global trends—what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty; why the world’s population is increasing; how many girls finish school—we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers. In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators, Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens. They reveal the ten instincts that distort our perspective—from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse). Our problem is that we don’t know what we don’t know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases. It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. That doesn’t mean there aren’t real concerns. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most. Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future. --- “This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance...Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing. It wasn’t enough. But I hope this book will be.” Hans Rosling, February 2017.

The real change will come only when you will accept it inside your soul ... There are so many books about change or success, that you will not have enough time to read them during this life time. Sometimes looking for a huge success that could complete our lives ... the change is just part of the script. And success indeed can’t come without the change. But what is the change?! Can you do it by yourself, or you just need special help from different people?! Or maybe the real change can come only from inside of us ... and the only real help as it to happen is to accept it ... not only want it. Accept it ... as part of your life. Imagine that many years ago ... you had been poor, but you dreamed to be rich. And one day you become rich. But the funny question is ... do you accept the fact that you became rich?! There are so many people that they were poor and then they became millionaires ... but soon after they lost everything again. So ... they re became poor again. They did not accepted the change. Could not integrate it in their life. When change comes in small steps ... is much easier to accept it as part of our new life. When change comes suddenly ... we need to change our thinking right away ... and dare to see the whole scene of life in different colors. On the paths trough life ... we get lost. We lose all our dreams, one by another ... and we also lose ourselves also. One day ... the idea of change looks illusory and we wonder why we can’t understand the fact that we are never happy anymore. For a beautiful life, no matter if you are 20, 30, 40, 50 or even 60 or 70 ... you just need a plan ... the plan for the change. But the change needs to be a positive one ... and not a collection of silly desires. And if your life is miserable today ... small changes will make almost no difference at all. The change needs to be a process of ... dreaming big no matter what happens in your actual life. But you need to visualize and accept the future ... cause the real change means the break up from your past. You will lose yourself into this process and become a new you ... but if you really want a new you ... you will accept it.

Everything Is Personal is an empowering book for those who have tried to change without experiencing much success. Following several setbacks in an attempt to live a life of unconditional love, the author looks into the conflict between how she wants to act and how she actually behaves. In the process, she discovers a truth that transforms her life: Everything is Personal. Everything is Personal is an inspiring chronicle of the author’s inner journey to alter her behaviors, only to discover how difficult change can be even when the desire is strong. She recognizes she is not alone. Research shows ninety percent of those who make New Year’s resolutions fail by the end of the year. Relying on the guiding principle that Everything is Personal and her love for Quantum Physics, brain research, and learning theory, she devises a change process that is simple and effective. As she gradually revises her self-defeating beliefs, she discovers true inner happiness, unconditional self-love, and compassion for others. Her journey is personal, but the answers she finds are universal.

Millions of women were abused and raped during the final stages of WW II, and while the attitude among many survivors is "We don't talk about that," this woman has found the courage to place her memories on record. Growing up in a rural village in Pomerania, Gila's tranquil life turned tragic when the fighting approached her neighborhood. Her father was captured and taken to Siberia while she and her family became displaced persons and joined the trek of thousands "on the road to nowhere." She was witness to gruesome acts of violence that quickly aged her before her years. She barely survived diphtheria and later, recovering from typhoid fever, she took responsibility for her three siblings while her mother worked. Despite her interrupted schooling through circumstances beyond her control, Gila's determination empowered her to become a Physical Education teacher and successful competitive kayaker. The division of Germany into East and West with its political ramifications caused her to escape to West Germany. Here she was able to fulfill an old dream despite having to face new challenges, including an unwanted affair. Gila's story is one of heartache, courage, pain, love, liberation and reclaiming life....

Respecting Truth

Throughout history, humans have always indulged in certain irrationalities and held some fairly wrong-headed beliefs. But in his newest book, philosopher Lee McIntyre shows how we've now reached a watershed moment for ignorance in the modern era, due to the volume of misinformation, the speed with which it can be digitally disseminated, and the savvy exploitation of our cognitive weaknesses by those who wish to advance their ideological agendas. In Respecting Truth: Willful Ignorance in the Internet Age, McIntyre issues a call to fight back against this slide into the witless abyss. In the tradition of Galileo, the author champions the importance of using tested scientific methods for arriving at true beliefs, and shows how our future survival is dependent on a more widespread, reasonable world.
