Decisiones, decisiones, decisiones. Nos enfrentamos a cientos de ellas todos los días, incluso miles. Pero ¿cómo podemos saber si estamos tomando las correctas? En Decídete, Chip y Dan Heath abordan uno de los temas cruciales de nuestras vidas laborales y personales: cómo tomar mejores decisiones. Y es que la decisión correcta, en el momento oportuno, puede cambiarlo todo. La investigación psicológica ha revelado que nuestras decisiones se distorsionan por sesgos e irracionalidades: tenemos una confianza desmedida en nosotros mismos y buscamos información que nos respalde y restamos importancia a la que no lo hace. Las emociones a corto plazo nos distraen. Cuando elegimos, nuestros cerebros son nuestro peor enemigo. Lamentablemente, limitarse a ser consciente de estos defectos no soluciona el problema, de igual modo que saber que somos miopes no nos ayuda a ver. La verdadera pregunta es: ¿cómo podemos hacerlo mejor? ¿Cómo podemos tomar mejores decisiones más inteligentes? En Decídete, los hermanos Heath, basándose en la literatura científica sobre la toma de decisiones, presentan un proceso de cuatro pasos para contrarrestar estos sesgos. Escrito en un estilo cautivador e irresistiblemente ameno, Decídete lleva al lector a un viaje inolvidable a través de historias y anécdotas reales de personajes populares para ayudarnos a tomar mejores decisiones en nuestra vida tanto personal como profesional.

Publisher: Harper Collins
The bestselling author of Your Erroneous Zones, Pulling Your Own Strings, and Wisdom of the Ages combines psychological insights and guidelines for achieving spiritual fulfillment to present a three-step program designed to help readers look inside themselves to find a new sense of self-awareness and spiritual joy. Developing the sacred self, Wayne Dyer explains, brings an understanding of our place in the world and a sense of satisfaction in ourselves and others. In Your Sacred Self, Dyer offers a program that helps listeners establish a spiritually-oriented, rather than an ego-oriented, approach to life. Step by step, Dyer shows us how to progress from emotional awareness to psychological insight to spiritual alternatives in order to change our experience of life from the need to acquire to a sense of abundance; from a sense of one's self as sinful and inferior to a sense of one's self as divine; from a need to achieve and acquire to an awareness that detachment and letting go bring freedom. Your Sacred Self is an inspiring, hopeful, illuminating guide that can help everyone live a happier, richer, more meaningful life.

Author: Neale Donald Walsch
Neale Donald Walsch has changed the way the world thinks about God. His books have beentranslated into twenty-five languages, and his Conversations With God series, book1, book 2, and book 3, have all been New York Times bestsellers-book 1 for over two years. In the Conversations books, Walsch shared with his readers the beginning of a sacred relationship, as he began an exchange with God on everything from love and faith, to life and death, and good and evil. And then, as Walsch recounted in Friendship with God, something else extraordinary began to happen. His relationship with God began to strengthen and deepen, just as our own relationships do, into a friendship. Now in Communion with God, his most richly intimate book yet, Walsch discovers how to elevate that friendship to a state of communion. In this blueprint for seekers, he reveals The Ten Illusions of Man-the misconceptions we hold about ourselves and our world and our God. He describes with striking clarity how we might heal the great divide that has arisen from these illusions. And as he explores the true meaning of bringing God into our everyday lives, of having the courage of our convictions. Walsch shows us that we can only break free from our illusions when we act always from a place of deep fellowship with all that is holy-a place of communion with God.

The goal of this volume is to explore the social and political dynamics of rumor and the related concept of urban or contemporary legend. These forms of communication often appear in tandem with social problems, including riots, racial or political violence, and social and economic upheavals. The volume emphasizes the connection of rumor to a set of social concerns from government corruption and corporate scandal, to racial, religious, and other prejudices. Central to the dialogue are issues of truth, belief, history, public policy, and evidence.Rumor has been recognized as one of the most important contributing factors to violence and discrimination. Yet, despite its significance in exacerbating social discord and mistrust, little systematic scholarly attention has been paid to the political origins and consequences of rumor. Rumor is defined as a proposition for belief that is not backed by secure standards of evidence. Rumor can be traditional or not, and can be expressed as a simple claim of fact. In both instances groups of claim-makers, operating out of their own interests and with a set of resources, attempt to depict reality, and if possible, impact the future.The need for this book is underscored by changing patterns of technology. What in the past was grounded in face- to-face interaction is now often found on the Internet, which is a major source of rumor. An appreciation of how new electronic forms of communication affect communal belief is essential for explicating rumor dynamics. The volume is comprehensive. Essays cover race and ethnicity, migration and globalization, corporate malfeasance, and state and government corruption. While editors and contributors well appreciate the dynamic nature of rumors and legends, the high quality of the effort make it evident that the issues that are raised and reoccur will serve to channel and inspire research in this major field of communications research for years to come.

Suppose you could ask God any question and get an answer. What would it be? Young people all over the world have been asking those questions.

Conversations with God for Teens is a simple, clear, straight-to-the-point dialogue that answers teens questions about God, money, sex, love, and more. Conversations with God for Teens reads like a rap session at a church youth group, where teenagers discuss everything they ever wanted to know about life but were too afraid to ask God. Walsch acts as the verbal conduit, showing teenagers how easy it is to converse with the divine. When Claudia, age 16, from Perth, Australia, asks, "Why can't I just have sex with everybody? What's the big deal?", the answer God offers her is: "Nothing you do will ever be okay with everybody. 'Everybody' is a large word. The real question is can you have sex and have it be okay with you?" There's no doubt that the casual question-and-answer format will help make God feel welcoming and accessible to teens.
