This book shows how we can move beyond secular mindfulness and compassion techniques to the cultivation of insight - seeing into and thereby becoming free of the repetitive thinking that keeps us trapped in cycles of suffering. Most books in the secular mindfulness tradition stop with mindfulness and self-compassion but do little to uncover the root causes of our suffering. Drawing on both Buddhist analyses of mind and current findings in psychology and neuroscience, the book explains how our thinking becomes fixed and routinized through our engaging with unconscious preferences and reactions. Through the cultivation of insight, we can disentangle ourselves from these patterns, which leads to greater equanimity, freedom, and compassion. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Perring.

Winner of the 2013 Books for a Better Life Acorda Wellness Award and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award. Resilience is the ability to face and handle life's challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters. While resilience is innate in the brain, over time, we learn unhelpful patterns, which then become fixed in our neural circuitry. But science is now revealing that what previously seemed hardwired can be rewired, and Bouncing Back shows us how. With powerful, time-tested exercises, Linda Graham guides us in rebuilding our core well-being and disaster-proofing our brains.

The 1890s saw a revolution in advertising. Cheap paper, faster printing, rural mail delivery, railroad shipping, and chromolithography combined to pave the way for the first modern, mass-produced catalogs. The most prominent of these, reaching American households by the thousands, were seed and nursery catalogs with beautiful pictures of middle-class homes surrounded by sprawling lawns, exotic plants, and the latest garden accessories - in other words, the quintessential English-style garden.America’s Romance with the English Garden is the story of tastemakers and homemakers, of savvy businessmen and a growing American middle class eager to buy their products. It’s also the story of the beginnings of the modern garden industry, which seduced the masses with its images and fixed the English garden in the mind of the American consumer. Seed and nursery catalogs delivered aspirational images to front doorsteps from California to Maine, and the English garden became the look of America.Named one of “the year's best gardening books” by The Spectator. 1.

A NOTE FROM JEN LANCASTER: "To whom the fat rolls...I'm tired of books where a self-loathing heroine is teased to the point where she starves herself skinny in hopes of a fabulous new life. And I hate the message that women can't possibly be happy until we all fit into our skinny jeans. I don't find these stories uplifting; they make me want to hug these women and take them out for fizzy champagne drinks and cheesecake and explain to them that until they figure out their insides, their outsides don't matter. Unfortunately, being overweight isn't simply a societal issue that can be fixed with a dose healthy of positive self-esteem. It's a health matter, and here on the eve of my fortieth year, I've learned I have to make changes so I don't, you know, die. Because what good is finally being able to afford a pedicure if I lose a foot to adult onset diabetes?" 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jamie Heinlein.

Wolves in sheep's clothing have pulled the wool over our eyes. For almost 500 years, the masses have been thoroughly deceived by a cosmic fairy tale of astronomical proportions. We have been taught a falsehood so gigantic and diabolical that it has blinded us from our own experience and common sense and from seeing the world and the universe as they truly are.Through pseudoscience books and programs, mass media, and public education, universities and government propaganda, the world has been systematically brainwashed, slowly indoctrinated over centuries into the unquestioning belief of the greatest lie of all time. A multigenerational conspiracy has succeeded, in the minds of the masses, to pick up the fixed Earth, shape it into a ball, spin it in circles, and throw it around the sun! The greatest cover-up of all time, NASA and Freemasonry's biggest secret, is that we are living on a plane, not a planet, that Earth is the flat, stationary center of the universe. 1.

Flash Boys by Michael Lewis was published and distributed on March 31, 2014. The content keeps tabs on high frequency exchanging (HFT) in monetary markets. Lewis states that "the business is fixed" by HFT brokers who front run requests put by investors. The entire book has a number of different claims and interesting information (some of which is, of course, debated among professionals that are in the field). The book is quite an interesting listen, and we will explore other's opinions about the issues that are presented in this book later on in this summary. If you are looking to find a book that talks about a lot of the modern issues with Wall Street and other parts of the economy, then you are going to want to start here. The research that Lewis put into this book really shows how serious he was about revealing the truth about this very volatile and vital topic. The lot has been cast, and the responsibility has fallen to big name writer Michael Lewis to bring forward a more extensive, open consideration to the predations of HFT. Some people who have started to look into this book have also looked into other books that explored the same exact topics, and trusted that these generally investigated books might pick up some recognition in the topic. The ultimate goal of Flash Boys and other books that focus on HFT is to lead to new SEC decisions, which will address the quickening and computerization of Wall Street and how the SEC's well-meaning NSM had helped introduce this rebuilding of value markets. 1.
