Interior pages have several earmarks, occasional light soiling and one page with pink highlighting. Solid reading copy with a few flaws. Book Description: Happiness is the most sought-after commodity in the world, and people are willing to do just about anything to get it. But, after walking on hot coals, following gurus, making lists, learning in their sleep, and reading every book ever written on self-improvement, most people are still stuck in the same self-defeating patterns they were in before. Now there's hope. Workshop facilitator and author Jim Britt has helped thousands of people achieve happiness and fulfillment in their lives by teaching them how to use their inherent authentic power to attract what they desire. Britt reveals how most people allow daily dramas-relationship dramas, health dramas, work dramas, and spiritual dramas-to get in the way of achieving happiness. While a desire for success and happiness inspires them to move forward, these negative emotions and nonproductive behaviors hold them back. In this amazing book, readers will learn how to break out of this pendulum of negativity by letting go of the fears and false thinking that causes them pain. ; 8vo

Pages are clean and intact, light scuffing to covers. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 192 pages; Who among us hasn't harbored a hidden--and, perhaps, not-so-secret--dream of publishing a book? Expanding a 20-page memo originally published in Inc. Magazine, Brown, with major credentials as a magazine editor (including Forbes and Inc. ) and an author (among his book titles is Customers for Life, 1990) , sets out to help us realize that desire. What he imparts is common sense. His three-step process to finding an agent starts with identifying the books with concepts close to yours, reading the acknowledgments, then contacting that agent. The list of questions to ask your editor begins with a query about the intended marketing plans. How he writes is pure entertainment, complete with editorial sidebars (courtesy of Ellen Kadin, acquisitions editor at AMACOM) , footnotes packed with laugh-out-loud information, and occasional illustrations that perk up the well-written text.

New item - has a small remainder marking to one outer edge. The opening section, “In the Face of Tragedy, ” defines suffering as the pain that threatens to make life meaningless.

The true self contains the light that no darkness can attack. Having described a path of awareness and compassion that leads to the light, the second half of The Deeper Wound takes us there through “A Hundred Days of Healing, ” daily affirmations, exercises, insights, lessons, and questions—each a step out of pain toward a higher reality. “We can become living memorials to tragedy by restoring the power of life, ” writes Deepak Chopra.

Pages are clean and tight, a little soiling to one outer edge. Cover has light edgewear and some corner and edge curling. Old price sticker on rear. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 192 pages; Feng shui is the 3,000-year-old Chinese art that looks at how objects affect energy, an important concern when arranging furniture, building a home, or planting a garden. There are several different variations of feng shui, which has led to confusion about its most basic principles. Clear Englebert explains the differences and then discusses how to put feng shui into practice. He addresses concerns about architectural features such as doors and windows, about finding the right place to situate beds and other furniture, and about landscaping. Other topics include removing clutter, creating empowered positions, avoiding "poison arrows," and what to know about clocks, mirrors, glass, air circulation, and the five elements. Straightforward and comprehensive, this guide enables anyone to practice the art of feng shui for a more peaceful and harmonious living environment. (290-osl)

The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, Ford, Debbie
18 Ford, Debbie The Dark Side of the Light Chasers
Riverhead Trade 1999 1573227358 / 9781573227353 First Edition Softcover Near Fine 
Excellent condition, clean & unmarked. Very light wear to cover, price sticker on rear. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 208 pages; Debbie Ford believes that we each hold within us a trace of every human characteristic that exists, the capacity for every human emotion. We are born with the ability to express this entire spectrum of characteristics. But, Ford points out, our families and our society send us strong messages about which ones are good and bad. So when certain impulses arise, we deny them instead of confronting them, giving them a healthy voice, then letting them go. It is to these feelings that Ford turns our attention, these parts of our selves that don't fit the personae we have created for the rest of the world. She shows us the effects of living in the dark, of keeping all our supposedly unsavory impulses under wraps. We find ourselves disproportionately frustrated and angry at the selfishness of friends, the laziness of colleagues, the arrogance of siblings. When we are unable to reconcile similar impulses in ourselves, Ford explains, we waste our own energy judging others instead of empathizing. But most important, we deny ourselves the power and freedom of living authentically. Through the stories and exercises in The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, Debbie Ford shows us not only how to recognize our hidden emotions, but also how to find the gifts they offer us. The very impulses we most fear may be the key to what is lacking in our lives. [185-osl]
