<p>YOU DESERVE TO HAVE POWER.</p><p>IT IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.</p><p>GENE SIMMONS IS HERE TO UNLOCK THE DOORS TO THE TEMPLE.</p><p>Gene Simmons, KISS front-man, multi-hyphenate entrepreneur, and master of self-invention, shares his philosophy on power—how to attain it, how to keep it, and how to harness it as a driving force in business and in life.</p><p>As co-founder of KISS, America's #1 gold record-award-winning group of all time, Simmons knows the thrill and seduction of power firsthand. But gold records alone don’t equal power. The decisions you make once you attain a certain level of success are what separate the pretenders from the pantheon.</p><p>Inspired by Niccolo Machiavelli’s <em>The Prince</em>, Simmons offers his unique take on the dynamics of power in every realm of life, from the bedroom to the boardroom, to the world of rock, celebrity, and social media, to politics. With one-of-a-kind anecdotes from his life and career, as well as stories from historical and contemporary masters of power, including Winston Churchill, Napoleon Bonaparte, Warren Buffett, Michael Jordon, Oprah, and Elon Musk, Simmons crafts a persuasive and provocative theory on how the pursuit of power drives civilization and defines our lives.</p><p>The rules of power are changing in today’s fast-paced, hyper-connected world in a way that Machiavelli never could have imagined, and we all need to learn to adapt. Simmons tells readers: Ignore the negatives. Be unrelenting. Rise above the rest. You are the architect of your success.</p><p> </p>

<p><i>Playing the Matrix</i> is <b>Mike Dooley</b>’s advanced course on living deliberately and creating consciously. The concepts he shares were born of material he’s delivered to live audiences the world over, culminating in his most impactful, most transformational program ever. Now, for the first time in 17 years of touring, these ideas are to be shared in book form.</p><p>At the heart of the Matrix lies a simple yet <i>highly unexpected</i> concept for creating major life change that’s unlike anything shared by other teachers, past and present. It clearly reveals why “manifesting” <i>sometimes</i> works with incredible ease, why it sometimes doesn’t work at all, and why, on occasion, it works, and yet in hindsight we wish it hadn’t. Readers will not only learn about the “Bermuda Triangle of Manifesting” that too often leads to heartbreak and loss, they’ll learn how to navigate around it, under full sail, with their own new “a-ha” moments that will teach them:<ul><li>How to achieve clarity in purpose and desire and thereby avoid contradictions and self-sabotage<li>How to fuel their dreams with passion while not attaching to unimportant details and outcomes<li>How to plan and take action on their dreams without “messing with the cursed how’s”!</ul></p><p>And so much more…</p>

<p><b>A <i>USA Today</i> Bestseller!</b></p><p><b>Standing between you and the man you CAN be is one thing: The Mask of Masculinity.</b></p><p>Lewis Howes grew up as an athlete. He was a two-sport All-American, played almost every sport in high school, and went on to play football professionally. Howes then transferred his competitive nature from sports to business, building his podcast, "The School of Greatness," into a global phenomenon and becoming successful beyond his wildest dreams. But his whole identity was built on misguided beliefs aboutwhat "masculinity" was: dangerous, false ideas learned from teammates and coaches in locker rooms and stereotypes in the media. Like so many men, Howes grew up to be angry, frustrated, and always chasing something that was never enough.</p><p>At 30 years old, outwardly thriving but unfulfilled inside, Howes began a personal journey to find inner peace and to uncover the many masks that men--young and old--wear: by asking for advice from some of the world's best psychologists, doctors, and household names like Tony Robbins, Alanis Morissette, and Ray Lewis. That journey created this book--a must read for every man, and for every woman who loves a man.</p><p>In <i>The Mask of Masculinity</i>, Howes exposes the ultimate emptiness of the Material Mask, the man who chases wealth above all things; the cowering vulnerability that hides behind the Joker and Stoic Masks of men who never show real emotion; and the destructiveness of the Invincible and Aggressive Masks worn by men who take insane risks or can never back down from a fight. He teaches men how to break through the walls that hold them back and shows women how they can better understand the men in their lives. It's not easy, but if you want to love, be loved, and live a great life, then it's an odyssey of self-discovery that all modern men must make.</p>

<b>Now updated with new research—the book that has changed millions of lives</b><br /><br /> After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a <i>fixed mindset</i>—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a <i>growth mindset</i>—those who believe that abilities can be developed. <i>Mindset</i> reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.<br /><br /> In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Mindset</i></b><br /><br />“A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.”<b>—Robert J. Sternberg, co-author of <i>Teaching for Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, and Success</i></b><br /><br />“An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”<b><i>—Library Journal </i>(starred review)</b><br /><br />“Everyone should read this book.”<b>—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of <i>Made to Stick</i></b><br /><br />“One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”<b>—Po Bronson, author of <i>NurtureShock</i></b><br /> <br />“If you manage people or are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read <i>Mindset</i>.”<b>—Guy Kawasaki, author of <i>The Art of the Start 2.0</i></b>

<b><b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller. </b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br />From thought leader Dr. Brené Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.</b><br />  <br /> <i>“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while <b>daring greatly.</b>”—</i>Theodore Roosevelt<br /><br /> Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Dr. Brené Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.<br /><br /> Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, <i>and</i> the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: “When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.”<br /><br /> <i>Daring Greatly</i> is not about winning or losing. It’s about courage. In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena—whether it’s a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. <i>Daring Greatly</i> is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>
