Anyone looking for a way to alleviate depressive symptoms or simply cope with everyday emotional turmoil will find this book an invaluable read.<br /><br /><b>10% Happier Overview</b><br />In 10% Happier, Dan Harris makes a case for meditation that is so compelling that even the hardened skeptic can’t help but get drawn in. Mixing a true personal story with scientific research and the wisdom of renowned self-help gurus, this book takes an entertaining and refreshingly honest approach to overcoming the trappings of everyday life. <br /><br /><b>The Book of Joy Overview </b><br />In "The Book of Joy," his Holiness, the Dalai Lama, and the Archbishop Desmond Tutu talk about how true joy is essential for our lives. They highlight several ways where we can embrace joy and find a purpose. Although they both suffered depressing times in exile, they experience greater joy and affirm the truth about the relationship between profound joy and sadness with amazing clarity. <br /><br /><b>Man's Search for Meaning Overview </b><br />Frankl’s experiences in Auschwitz and Dachau, among other camps, are used to explain the psychological theory that he developed as a prisoner, and as such bring his psychological philosophies into a more personalized and humanized realm. It invites the reader to focus on deciding for themselves what potential positive experience every situation may hold, and gives the individual the tools necessary to seize these potentialities. Man’s Search for Meaning is more than just a book about imprisonment and psychology, it is an answer to life’s greatest question: what is the purpose of life? <br /><br /><em>Click 'Buy now with 1-Click' to own your bundle today!</em><br /><b>Please note:</b> These are summaries, analyses and reviews of the books and not the original books.

Don't miss this summary of Charlamagne The God's half-memoir, half-self-help book, <em>Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It.</em> The successful radio show host weaves a balance between his own personal narrative and the lessons he learned into a guide for anyone to find success, no matter where they came from. This SUMOREADS summary provides key takeaways and analysis to help you quickly grasp the essence of his hard-learned life lessons. <br /><br /><b>What you will learn from reading this book</b><br /><br /><ul><li>How to get rid of anxiety and doubt as you pursue your dream</li><br /><li>What you need to do to get your equilibrium right</li><br /><li>The importance of recognizing the power of God in our lives</li><br /><li>How to consider setbacks as lessons not losses</li><br /><li>Three questions that can tell you if you are discouraging honesty in your relationships</li><br /><li>Why embracing the process rather than the results is the only way to achieve a dream</li><br /><li>How to tell if your old friends are evolving as you are</li><br /><li>Why it’s important to have an open mind and how to open ourselves to more instruction</li><br /><li>How being open to learning is can help you nurture grow your personal relationships</li><br /><li>Who are the Five Percenters and what makes them “revered” and “attractive”</li></ul> <br /><b>Book Summary Overview</b><br />Raised in a small town by a religious mother and a crack sniffing, alcoholic father, life didn’t come on a platter for Charlamagne. The environment was harsh but here’s where he learned one of his most valued principles of attaining success in life: “bite your tongue for none.” By following his gut and believing in himself, he managed to land jobs in different radio stations including co-hosting the Wendy Williams show and hosting the Breakfast Club. As a person in the public arena, he experienced love, hate, criticism, physical attack and even dismissal from four different jobs on account of his brutal honesty.<br /><br />Charlamagne describes brutal honesty as a sign of real friendship and good manners. He writes boldly, using fearless speech and uncensored anecdotes from his formative years to explain his evolution. The author is expressive about his sexual and criminal escapades and articulates his learning points using lyrics from hip hop tracks. He quotes artists like a skilled essayist on an excellent thesis driving the point home brilliantly, especially for lovers of hip hop music. He shares eight principles which he learned and developed over time. These principles have been the anchor of his successes, and he hopes to impress on the reader. <br /><br /><h4>Click 'Buy now with 1-Click' to own your copy today!</h4><br /><b>Please note:</b> This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book.
