<p><strong>Now a Wall Street Journal bestseller.</strong></p><p><strong>Learn a new talent, stay relevant, reinvent yourself, and adapt to whatever the workplace throws your way. <em>Ultralearning</em> offers nine principles to master hard skills quickly. This is the essential guide to future-proof your career and maximize your competitive advantage through self-education.</strong></p><p>In these tumultuous times of economic and technological change, staying ahead depends on continual self-education—a lifelong mastery of fresh ideas, subjects, and skills. If you want to accomplish more and stand apart from everyone else, you need to become an ultralearner. </p><p>The challenge of learning new skills is that you think you already know how best to learn, as you did as a student, so you rerun old routines and old ways of solving problems. To counter that, <em>Ultralearning</em> offers powerful strategies to break you out of those mental ruts and introduces new training methods to help you push through to higher levels of retention. </p><p>Scott H. Young incorporates the latest research about the most effective learning methods and the stories of other ultralearners like himself—among them Benjamin Franklin, chess grandmaster Judit Polgár, and Nobel laureate physicist Richard Feynman, as well as a host of others, such as little-known modern polymath Nigel Richards, who won the French World Scrabble Championship—without knowing French. </p><p>Young documents the methods he and others have used to acquire knowledge and shows that, far from being an obscure skill limited to aggressive autodidacts, ultralearning is a powerful tool anyone can use to improve their career, studies, and life. </p><p><em>Ultralearning</em> explores this fascinating subculture, shares a proven framework for a successful ultralearning project, and offers insights into how you can organize and exe - cute a plan to learn anything deeply and quickly, without teachers or budget-busting tuition costs.</p><p>Whether the goal is to be fluent in a language (or ten languages), earn the equivalent of a college degree in a fraction of the time, or master multiple tools to build a product or business from the ground up, the principles in <em>Ultralearning</em> will guide you to success.</p>

<b>A REESE WITHERSPOON x HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK<br /><br />"A hands-on, real talk guide for navigating the hot-button issues that so many families struggle with."--Reese Witherspoon <br /><br />A revolutionary, real-world solution to the problem of unpaid, invisible work that women have shouldered for too long.</b><br /><br />It started with the Sh*t I Do List. Tired of being the "shefault" parent responsible for all aspects of her busy household, Eve Rodsky counted up all the unpaid, invisible work she was doing for her family -- and then sent that list to her husband, asking for things to change. His response was... underwhelming. Rodsky realized that simply identifying the issue of unequal labor on the home front wasn't enough: She needed a <i>solution</i> to this universal problem. Her sanity, identity, career, and marriage depended on it. <br /><br />The result is Fair Play: a time- and anxiety-saving system that offers couples a completely new way to divvy up domestic responsibilities. Rodsky interviewed more than five hundred men and women from all walks of life to figure out what the invisible work in a family actually entails and how to get it all done efficiently. With four easy-to-follow rules, 100 household tasks, and a figurative card game you play with your partner, <i>Fair Play </i>helps you prioritize what's important to your family and who should take the lead on every chore from laundry to homework to dinner. <br /><br />"Winning" this game means rebalancing your home life, reigniting your relationship with your significant other, and reclaiming your Unicorn Space -- as in, the time to develop the skills and passions that keep you interested and interesting. Are you ready to try Fair Play? Let's deal you in.

<p><strong>National bestseller</strong></p><p><strong>A fresh, insightful guide to reading body language in the post-digital age </strong></p><p>Whether you’re at a job interview or a cocktail party, searching LinkedIn or swiping right on a dating site, you want (no—<em>need</em>) to understand what people are really thinking, regardless of what they’re saying. Understanding what others are trying to tell you with their posture, hand gestures, eye contact (or lack thereof) or incessant fiddling with their iPhone might all be even more important than what you’re projecting yourself. Do they plan on making a deal with your company? Are they lying to you? Can you trust this person with your most intimate secrets? Knowing what others are thinking can tell you when to run with an opportunity and when not to waste your time, whether at work, in a crucial negotiation or on a promising first date.</p><p>Bestselling authors Mark Bowden and Tracey Thomson, principals at the communications company Truthplane, illustrate the essential points of body language with examples from everyday life, leavened with humour and insights that you can use to your advantage in virtually any situation.</p>

<b><b><b>Look out for Daniel Pink’s new book, <i>When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing</i></b><br /><br />#1 <i>New York Times</i> Business Bestseller </b><br /> <b>#1 <i>Wall Street</i> <i>Journal</i> Business Bestseller</b><br /> <b>#1 <i>Washington Post</i> bestseller</b><br /><br /> From the bestselling author of <i>Drive </i>and <i>A Whole New Mind </i>comes a surprising--and surprisingly useful--new book that explores the power of selling in our lives.</b><br /><br /> According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in nine Americans works in sales. Every day more than fifteen million people earn their keep by persuading someone else to make a purchase.<br /><br /> But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges:<br /><br /> Yes, one in nine Americans works in sales. <i>But so</i> <i>do the other eight</i>.<br /><br /> Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others. Like it or not, we’re all in sales now.<br /><br /> <i>To Sell Is Human</i> offers a fresh look at the art and science of selling. As he did in <i>Drive </i>and <i>A Whole New Mind</i>, Daniel H. Pink draws on a rich trove of social science for his counterintuitive insights. He reveals the new ABCs of moving others (it's no longer "Always Be Closing"), explains why extraverts don't make the best salespeople, and shows how giving people an "off-ramp" for their actions can matter more than actually changing their minds.<br /><br /> Along the way, Pink describes the six successors to the elevator pitch, the three rules for understanding another's perspective, the five frames that can make your message clearer and more persuasive, and much more. The result is a perceptive and practical book--one that will change how you see the world and transform what you do at work, at school, and at home.
