<b>THE #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER WITH OVER 28 MILLION COPIES IN PRINT!<br /><br />A timeless business classic,<i> Who Moved My Cheese?</i> uses a simple parable to reveal profound truths about dealing with change so that you can enjoy less stress and more success in your work and in your life.<br /><br /></b><i>It would be all so easy if you had a map to the Maze.</i><br /><i>If the same old routines worked.</i><br /><i>If they'd just stop moving "The Cheese."</i><br /><i>But things keep changing...<br /><br /></i>Most people are fearful of change, both personal and professional, because they don't have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Dr. Spencer Johnson, the coauthor of the multimillion bestseller <i>The One Minute Manager,</i> uses a deceptively simple story to show that when it comes to living in a rapidly changing world, what matters most is your attitude.<br /><br />Exploring a simple way to take the fear and anxiety out of managing the future, <i>Who Moved My Cheese?</i> can help you discover how to anticipate, acknowledge, and accept change in order to have a positive impact on your job, your relationships, and every aspect of your life.

<b>This groundbreaking book explains why women experience burnout differently than men—and provides a simple, science-based plan to help women minimize stress, manage emotions, and live a more joyful life.</b><br /><br /><b><b>“Essential reading.”—<i>Bustle </i>• NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY <i>BOOKRIOT</i></b><br /></b><br /> Burnout. Many women in America have experienced it. What’s expected of women and what it’s really like to be a woman in today’s world are two very different things—and women exhaust themselves trying to close the gap between them. How can you “love your body” when every magazine cover has ten diet tips for becoming “your best self”? How do you “lean in” at work when you’re already operating at 110 percent and aren’t recognized for it? How can you live happily and healthily in a sexist world that is constantly telling you you’re too fat, too needy, too noisy, and too selfish?<br /><br /> Sisters Emily Nagoski, PhD, and Amelia Nagoski, DMA, are here to help end the cycle of feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Instead of asking us to ignore the very real obstacles and societal pressures that stand between women and well-being, they explain with compassion and optimism what we’re up against—and show us how to fight back. In these pages you’ll learn<br /><br /> • what you can do to complete the biological stress cycle—and return your body to a state of relaxation<br /> • how to manage the “monitor” in your brain that regulates the emotion of frustration<br /> • how the Bikini Industrial Complex makes it difficult for women to love their bodies—and how to defend yourself against it<br /> • why rest, human connection, and befriending your inner critic are keys to recovering and preventing burnout<br /><br /> With the help of eye-opening science, prescriptive advice, and helpful worksheets and exercises, all women will find something transformative in these pages—and will be empowered to create positive change. Emily and Amelia aren’t here to preach the broad platitudes of expensive self-care or insist that we strive for the impossible goal of “having it all.” Instead, they tell us that we are enough, just as we are—and that wellness, true wellness, is within our reach.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Burnout</i></b><br /><br /> “<i>Burnout</i> is the gold standard of self-help books, delivering cutting-edge science with energy, empathy, and wit. The authors know exactly what’s going on inside your frazzled brain and body, and exactly what you can do to fix it. . . . Truly life-changing.”<b>—Sarah Knight, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Calm the F*ck Down</i></b>

<b><p>The lack of personal accountability is a problem that has resulted in an epidemic of blame, victim thinking, complaining, and procrastination. No organization—or individual—can successfully compete in the marketplace, achieve goals and objectives, provide outstanding service, engage in exceptional teamwork, or develop people without personal accountability.   <br /><br />John G. Miller believes that the troubles that plague organizations cannot be solved by pointing fingers and blaming others. Rather, the real solutions are found when each of us recognizes the power of personal accountability. In <i>QBQ! The Question Behind the Question</i>®<i>,</i> Miller explains how negative, ill-focused questions like “Why do we have to go through all this change?” and “Who dropped the ball?” represent a lack of personal accountability. Conversely, when we ask better questions—QBQs—such as “What can I do to contribute?” or “How can I help solve the problem?” our lives and our organizations are transformed.</p><p><br />THE QBQ! PROMISE</p></b><p>This remarkable and timely book provides a practical method for putting personal accountability into daily actions, with astonishing results: problems are solved, internal barriers come down, service improves, teams thrive, and people adapt to change more quickly. <i>QBQ!</i> is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to learn, grow, and change. Using this tool, each of us can add tremendous worth to our organizations and to our lives by eliminating blame, victim-thinking, and procrastination.</p><p>                                                                                                 <br /><i>QBQ!</i> was written more than a decade ago and has helped countless readers practice personal accountability at work and at home. This version features a new foreword, revisions and new material throughout, and a section of  FAQs that the author has received over the years.</p><p></p><b><p></p></b><p></p>

Now featuring a new introduction by Dr. M. Scott Peck, the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the classic bestseller <i>The Road Less Traveled, </i>celebrated by <i>The</i> <i>Washington Post</i> as “not just a book but a spontaneous act of generosity.”<br /><br />Perhaps no book in this generation has had a more profound impact on our intellectual and spiritual lives than <i>The Road Less Traveled.</i> With sales of more than seven million copies in the United States and Canada, and translations into more than twenty-three languages, it has made publishing history, with more than ten years on the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller list. <br /> <br />Written in a voice that is timeless in its message of understanding, <i>The Road Less Traveled</i> continues to help us explore the very nature of loving relationships and leads us toward a new serenity and fullness of life. It helps us learn how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become a more sensitive parent; and ultimately how to become one’s own true self.<br /> <br />Recognizing that, as in the famous opening line of his book, “Life is difficult” and that the journey to spiritual growth is a long one, Dr. Peck never bullies his readers, but rather guides them gently through the hard and often painful process of change toward a higher level of self-understanding.
