Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender by David R. Hawkins free download.

The present work describes a simple and effective means by which to let go of the obstacles to Enlightenment and become free of negativity. During the many decades of the author’s clinical psychiatric practice, the primary aim was to seek the most effective ways to relieve human suffering in all its many forms. The letting go technique (surrender) was found to be of great practical benefit and is described in this book.

Review

[A] beautiful gift of writing… [You] spread joy, love and compassion through what you write. The fruit of these three is peace, as you know… Mother Teresa Praise for Power vs Force: Perhaps the most important and significant book I’ve read in the past ten years. — Dr Wayne W. Dyer New York Times bestselling author of Wishes Fulfilled.
The technique explained in this book would be too good to be true if there was such a thing. I’ve read hundreds of self-help and law of atttraction books, all kinds of them, and this was the one that helped me the most along with Abraham-Hicks teachings.

I don’t know about beginners, but if you’re like me, a law of attraction novice (knows all about it, has been trying for years and years) but haven’t been able to achieve much either mood-wise or manifestation-wise, and if you’re NOT a naturally positive person this is the book for you to release all that resistance that have built up for years so you can finally be unconditionally happy, and have a fulfilling life at the same time.

I thank the author everyday for this work, it was a God-sent.

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance pdf free download.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“You will not read a more important book about America this year.“—The Economist

“A riveting book.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Essential reading.”—David Brooks, New York Times

From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.

The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America. J. D.’s grandparents were “dirt poor and in love,” and moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. They raised a middle-class family, and eventually their grandchild (the author) would graduate from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of their success in achieving generational upward mobility.

But as the family saga of Hillbilly Elegy plays out, we learn that this is only the short, superficial version. Vance’s grandparents, aunt, uncle, sister, and, most of all, his mother, struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, and were never able to fully escape the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty, and trauma so characteristic of their part of America. Vance piercingly shows how he himself still carries around the demons of their chaotic family history.

A deeply moving memoir with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.

Science Is Culture: Conversations at the New Intersection of Science + Society by Adam Bly, Julian Dufort free download

Science Is Culture: Conversations at the New Intersection of Science + Society by Adam Bly, Julian Dufort free download

Description:

Seed magazine brings together a unique collection of conversations between prominent scientists, artists, and other thinkers, with dialogue designed to tear down the wall between science and society. In this one-of-a-kind-experiment, Science Is Culture offers insights from the Steven Pinker, Tom Wolfe, Noam Chomsky, David Byrne, Errol Morris, Jonathan Lethem, and many more of the world’s brightest burning minds.

From the Back Cover

Seed magazine brings together a unique gathering of prominent scientists, artists, novelists, philosophers + other thinkers who are tearing down the wall between science + culture.

We are on the cusp of a twenty-first-century scientific renaissance. Science is driving our culture and conversation unlike ever before, transforming the social, political, economic, aesthetic, and intellectual landscape of our time. Today, science is culture. As global issues—like energy and health—become increasingly interconnected, and as our curiosities—like how the mind works or why the universe is expanding—become more complex, we need a new way of looking at the world that blurs the lines between scientific disciplines and the borders between the sciences and the arts and humanities. In this spirit, the award-winning science magazine Seed has paired scientists with nonscientists to explore ideas of common interest to us all. This book is the result of these illuminating Seed Salon conversations, edited and with an introduction by Seedfounder and editor in chief Adam Bly.

This book is a collection of engaging conversations between pairs of scientists and leaders in arts and humanities. It presents reasoned exchanges between thought leaders of our society. Climate politics discussed between the late Steve Schneider and Laurie David, and Smater Infrastructure discussed between Tom Lovejoy and Mitchel Joachim are two among 22 topics explored in this book. I can see from this collection why Adam Bly’s Seed Magazine is so successful. No wonder he is in such demand at the World Economic Forum. He is truly, a world leader. These conversations are too fascinating to miss.

Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting by Pamela Druckerman free download

Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting by Pamela Druckerman free download

Description:

The runaway New York Times bestseller that shows American parents the secrets behind France’s amazingly well-behaved children

When American journalist Pamela Druckerman had a baby in Paris, she didn’t aspire to become a “French parent.” But she noticed that French children slept through the night by two or three months old. They ate braised leeks. They played by themselves while their parents sipped coffee. And yet French kids were still boisterous, curious, and creative. Why? How?
With a notebook stashed in her diaper bag, Druckerman set out to investigate—and wound up sparking a national debate on parenting. Researched over three years and written in her warm, funny voice,Bringing Up Bébé is deeply wise, charmingly told, and destined to become a classic resource for American parents.

Review

“Marvelous . . . Like Julia Child, who translated the secrets of French cuisine, Druckerman has investigated and distilled the essentials of French child-rearing. . . . Druckerman provides fascinating details about French sleep training, feeding schedules and family rituals. But her book’s real pleasures spring from her funny, self-deprecating stories. Like the principles she examines, Druckerman isn’t doctrinaire.” — NPR
Bringing Up Bébé is a must-read for parents who would like their children to eat more than white pasta and chicken fingers.”

Fox News
“On questions of how to live, the French never disappoint. . . . Maybe it all starts with childhood. That is the conclusion that readers may draw from Bringing Up Bébé.”

The Wall Street Journal
“French women don’t have little bags of emergency Cheerios spilling all over their Louis Vuitton handbags. They also, Druckerman notes, wear skinny jeans instead of sweatpants.The world arguably needs more kids who don’t throw food.”

Chicago Tribune
“I’ve been a parent now for more than eight years, and—confession—I’ve never actually made it all the way through a parenting book. But I found Bringing Up Bébé to be irresistible.”

Pendulum: How Past Generations Shape Our Present and Predict Our Future by Roy H. Williams, Michael R. Drew free download

Pendulum: How Past Generations Shape Our Present and Predict Our Future by Roy H. Williams, Michael R. Drew free download

Description:

Politics, manners, humor, sexuality, wealth, even our definitions of success are periodically renegotiated based on the new values society chooses
to use as a lens to judge what is acceptable.
Are these new values randomly chosen or is there a pattern?

Pendulum chronicles the stuttering history of western society; that endless back-and-forth swing between one excess and another, always reminded of what we left behind.

There is a pattern and it is 40 years: 2003 was a fulcrum year, as was 1963, its opposite.

Pendulum explains where we have been as a society, how we got here, and where we are headed. If you would benefit from a peek into the future,
you would do well to read this book.

Review

“If you’re trying to get a grip on why we do what we do, there’s a way forward: It’s  Pendulum. Roy Williams and Michael Drew have explored the profound shifts in society from ancient times to now and created a blueprint to civilization. To understand your clients, to understand the market, to understand your own motivations – read  Pendulum.”
—T. Harv Eker, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Secrets of the Millionaire Mind

“How do you predict what kind of society we’re in?  How do you know when’s the right time to make a difference? In Pendulum, Roy H. Williams and Michael R. Drew have combed through history’s ups and downs and the cultural shifts that ripple through every generation. They’ve written a unique guidebook that has an interesting perspective for marketers, entrepreneurs, and anyone is thinking about how to live in the now—and in the future.”
—Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos and New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness

The 48 Laws Of Power by Robert Greene pdf free download

The 48 Laws Of Power by Robert Greene pdf free download

Description:

The New York Times Bestseller

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, The 48 Laws of Power is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.

Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

Review

“Machiavelli has a new rival. And Sun Tzu had better watch his back. Greene . . . has put together a checklist of ambitious behavior. Just reading the table of contents is enough to stir a little corner-office lust.”New Yorkmagazine

“Beguiling . . . literate . . . fascinating. A wry primer for people who desperately want to be on top.”People magazine

“An heir to Machiavelli’s Prince . . . gentler souls will find this book frightening, those whose moral compass is oriented solely to power will have a perfect vade mecum.” Publishers Weekly

“Satisfyingly dense and . . . literary, with fantastic examples of genius power-game players. It’s The Rules meets In Pursuit of Wow! with a degree in comparative literature.”—Allure

Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton free download

Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton free download

Description:

#1 New York Times Bestseller

The Newest Oprah Bookclub 2016 Selection

The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.

Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out―three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list―her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life.

Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another – and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they’ve been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, commit to living true―true to themselves and to each other.

Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.
