    Story

    This is a topic I work with quite a lot and I was looking for something that got its arms around the subject as a whole. Prof Dues delivers a very clear and helpful overview of the subject with practical tips about how to put the lessons to work, examples from his own work which bring the theories to life and short dramatic illustrations of concepts to life. Despite its length my attention never flagged because his delivery is excellent and there are so many useful theories and tactics on offer throughout. My personal highlight is the section dealing with the interplay of goals relating to topic, relationship, identity and process which form a major part of all conflicts but there are plenty more. I was primarily interested in this from a work perspective but the lectures also deal with personal relationships and raising kids to be effective at conflict management in their own lives.

    Very highly recommended

    Story

    As someone wanting to start mindfulness meditation I found this to be a clear and informative guide. Prof Muesse is from the southern states of the USA; which seems to present a previous reviewer with some problems but for me wasn't an issue. His narration is clear and paced in a way that's well suited to meditation exercises. He provides interesting context on buddhism but also translates concepts such as karma in a way that's useful for those of us who aren't buddhists and don't believe in reincarnation. There are plenty of exercises to offer the beginner a range of options for meditating and since buying this lecture meditation has become part of my daily routine.

    The "Great Lectures" series all involve a bit of kidology; we're supposed to think it's a live lecture but the applause sounds dubbed-in between chapters and one assumes they're recorded in a studio somewhere. That's irrelevant though. Where they come up trumps is in hiring great university lecturers with solid academic credentials in the field and letting them do their thing. I wasn't sure whether that would work in this instance because I was after a practical guide but this really hit the spot for me in delivering both practical exercises as well as interesting background material.

Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Why is it easier to ruminate over hurt feelings than it is to bask in the warmth of being appreciated? Because your brain evolved to learn quickly from bad experiences but slowly from the good ones. You can change this. Hardwiring Happiness lays out a simple method that uses the hidden power of everyday experiences to build new neural structures full of happiness, love, confidence, and peace. Dr. Hanson's four steps build strengths into your brain, balancing its ancient negativity bias, making contentment and a powerful sense of resilience the new normal.
