<b><i>Mindshift </i>reveals how we can overcome stereotypes and preconceived ideas about what is possible for us to learn and become.</b><br />  <br /> At a time when we are constantly being asked to retrain and reinvent ourselves to adapt to new technologies and changing industries, this book shows us how we can uncover and develop talents we didn’t realize we had—no matter what our age or background. We’re often told to “follow our passions.” But in <i>Mindshift</i>, Dr. Barbara Oakley shows us how we can <i>broaden</i> our passions. Drawing on the latest neuroscientific insights, Dr. Oakley shepherds us past simplistic ideas of “aptitude” and “ability,” which provide only a snapshot of who we are<i> now</i>—with little consideration about how we can <i>change</i>.<br />     Even seemingly “bad” traits, such as a poor memory, come with hidden advantages—like increased creativity. Profiling people from around the world who have overcome learning limitations of all kinds, Dr. Oakley shows us how we can turn perceived weaknesses, such as impostor syndrome and advancing age, into strengths. People may feel like they’re at a disadvantage if they pursue a new field later in life; yet those who change careers can be fertile cross-pollinators: They bring valuable insights from one discipline to another. Dr. Oakley teaches us strategies for learning that are backed by neuroscience so that we can realize the joy and benefits of a learning lifestyle. <i>Mindshift</i> takes us deep inside the world of how people change and grow. Our biggest stumbling blocks can be our own preconceptions, but with the right mental insights, we can tap into hidden potential and create new opportunities.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

In this instant <i>New York Times </i>bestseller, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed—be it parents, students, educators, athletes, or business people—that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.”<BR><BR>Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of “genius,” Duckworth, now a celebrated researcher and professor, describes her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.<BR> <BR>In <i>Grit</i>, she takes readers into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers—from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.<BR> <BR>Among <i>Grit</i>’s most valuable insights:<BR> <BR> *Why any effort you make ultimately counts twice toward your goal<BR> *How grit can be learned, regardless of I.Q. or circumstances<BR> *How lifelong interest is triggered<BR> *How much of optimal practice is suffering and how much ecstasy<BR> *Which is better for your child—a warm embrace or high standards<BR> *The magic of the Hard Thing Rule<BR> <BR>Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, <i>Grit</i> is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that—not talent or luck—makes all the difference.

<b><b>“In all of the literature addressing education, race, poverty, and criminal justice, there has been nothing quite like <i>Reading with Patrick</i>.”—<i>The Atlantic</i></b><br /><br />A memoir of the life-changing friendship between an idealistic young teacher and her gifted student, jailed for murder in the Mississippi Delta<br /></b><br /> Recently graduated from Harvard University, Michelle Kuo arrived in the rural town of Helena, Arkansas, as a Teach for America volunteer, bursting with optimism and drive. But she soon encountered the jarring realities of life in one of the poorest counties in America, still disabled by the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. In this stirring memoir, Kuo, the child of Taiwanese immigrants, shares the story of her complicated but rewarding mentorship of one student, Patrick Browning, and his remarkable literary and personal awakening.<br /><br /> Convinced she can make a difference in the lives of her teenaged students, Michelle Kuo puts her heart into her work, using quiet reading time and guided writing to foster a sense of self in students left behind by a broken school system. Though Michelle loses some students to truancy and even gun violence, she is inspired by some such as Patrick. Fifteen and in the eighth grade, Patrick begins to thrive under Michelle’s exacting attention. However, after two years of teaching, Michelle feels pressure from her parents and the draw of opportunities outside the Delta and leaves Arkansas to attend law school.<br /><br /> Then, on the eve of her law-school graduation, Michelle learns that Patrick has been jailed for murder. Feeling that she left the Delta prematurely and determined to fix her mistake, Michelle returns to Helena and resumes Patrick’s education—even as he sits in a jail cell awaiting trial. Every day for the next seven months they pore over classic novels, poems, and works of history. Little by little, Patrick grows into a confident, expressive writer and a dedicated reader galvanized by the works of Frederick Douglass, James Baldwin, Walt Whitman, W. S. Merwin, and others. In her time reading with Patrick, Michelle is herself transformed, contending with the legacy of racism and the questions of what constitutes a “good” life and what the privileged owe to those with bleaker prospects.<br /><br /><b>“A powerful meditation on how one person can affect the life of another . . . One of the great strengths of <i>Reading</i> <i>with Patrick</i> is its portrayal of the risk inherent to teaching.”—<i>The</i> <i>Seattle Times</i></b><br /><br /><b>“[A] tender memoir.”—<i>O: The Oprah Magazine</i></b>

<i>I’d Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had </i>is television, screen and stage star Tony Danza’s absorbing account of a year spent teaching tenth-grade English at Northeast High -- Philadelphia’s largest high school with 3600 students.  <br /> <br />Entering Northeast’s crowded halls in September of 2009, Tony found his way to a classroom filled with twenty-six students who were determined not to cut him any slack.  They cared nothing about “Mr. Danza’s” showbiz credentials, and they immediately put him on the hot seat.  <br /> <br />Featuring indelible portraits of students and teachers alike, <i>I’d Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had </i>reveals just how hard it is to keep today’s technologically savvy – and often alienated -- students engaged, how impressively<i> committed</i> most teachers are, and the outsized role counseling plays in a teacher’s day, given the psychological burdens many students carry.  The book also makes vivid how a modern high school works, showing Tony in a myriad of roles – from lecturing on <i>To Kill a Mockingbird</i> to “coaching” the football team to organizing a talent show to leading far-flung field trips to hosting teacher gripe sessions. <br /> <br />A surprisingly poignant account, <i>I’d Like to Apologize to Every Teacher </i>I Ever Had is sometimes laugh-out-loud funny but is mostly filled with hard-won wisdom and feel-good tears.

"Mixing Modern Orchestral Music" was written for composers who already have a general understanding of processing units and techniques, physics of sound, and basic mixing concepts.<br />This book goes deep into the world of mixing and tackles new ways of processing modern orchestral music. This book is a must have for trailer / media and film composers who want to give that extra edge and polish to their music by learning new orchestral mixing techniques, or musicians who are new to this genre.<br /><br />The information in this book is particularly targeted towards mixing music that was composed using sample libraries and virtual instruments, but most of the information will still apply to mixing live recordings.
