The world is flooded with information, but starving for wisdom. <br /><br />Many feel a sense of overload, anxiety, and a general state of restlessness. Eastern cultures refer to the monkey mind and respond with yoga and meditation. Western civilization has identified a series of disorders and related prescription drugs.<br /><br />All of this can help, but what is the complete and balanced solution? How do we get grounded, despite all the confusion? How do we build a solid foundation that assures solid, authentic growth? If you look carefully at every authentic achievement, you will see a clear pattern of <b>Me We Do Be</b>.<br /><br /><b>Me We Do Be</b> reveals that all behaviors can be organized within these four cornerstones. <b>Me</b> is quality thinking that builds wisdom, <b>We</b> habits form quality relationships, <b>Do</b> actions build productivity, and <b>Be</b> designs the future. <b>Me We Do Be</b> connects the dots and creates a fresh perspective for moving forward.<br /><br />The <b>Me We Do Be</b> principles are the result of research that has spanned 25 years at the intersection of sociology and economics. Dr. Randall Bell masterfully interweaves classic behavioral research with his own work on high-profile cases—including Chernobyl, the World Trade Center, and O. J. Simpson—to reveal why some dive, some survive, and others thrive.<br /><br />Success can be defined in many ways. Obviously, some people define it as making money. Others see success as leading a great organization, breaking sales records, having a happy family life, finding true love, or winning a competition. Some see it as contributing to a worthy cause, completing a degree, or mastering a musical instrument. Others view success as beating cancer, connecting with the divine, or healing from an emotional wound.<br /><br />There is no one-size-fits-all for success. <b>Me We Do Be</b> lets us define what success means to us individually. But in so doing, it looks at the foundational elements that apply to us all.<br /><br />The power of <b>Me We Do Be</b> is that it cuts through the noise and simply puts the focus on the classic, timeless principles that build authentic success. Indeed, with a solid foundation we can build anything we want.<br /><br />This is the one book that you will want everyone in your family, business, and organization to read!

<DIV><P>Some things about babies, happily, will never change. They still arrive warm, cuddly, soft, and smelling impossibly sweet. But how moms and dads care for their brand-new bundles of baby joy has changed—and now, so has the new-baby bible. <BR /><BR /> Announcing the completely revised third edition of <I>What to Expect the First Year</I>. With over 10.5 million copies in print, <I>First Year</I> is the world’s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don’t come with, but should. And now, it’s better than ever. Every parent’s must-have/go-to is completely updated. <BR /><BR /> Keeping the trademark month-by-month format that allows parents to take the potentially overwhelming first year one step at a time, <I>First Year</I> is easier-to-read, faster-to-flip-through, and new-family-friendlier than ever—packed with even more practical tips, realistic advice, and relatable, accessible information than before. Illustrations are new, too. <BR /><BR /> Among the changes: Baby care fundamentals—crib and sleep safety, feeding, vitamin supplements—are revised to reflect the most recent guidelines. Breastfeeding gets more coverage, too, from getting started to keeping it going. Hot-button topics and trends are tackled: attachment parenting, sleep training, early potty learning (elimination communication), baby-led weaning, and green parenting (from cloth diapers to non-toxic furniture). An all-new chapter on buying for baby helps parents navigate through today’s dizzying gamut of baby products, nursery items, and gear. Also new: tips on preparing homemade baby food, the latest recommendations on starting solids, research on the impact of screen time (TVs, tablets, apps, computers), and “For Parents” boxes that focus on mom’s and dad’s needs. Throughout, topics are organized more intuitively than ever, for the best user experience possible.</P></DIV>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • The pioneering experts behind <i>The Whole-Brain Child</i>—Tina Payne Bryson and Daniel J. Siegel, the author of <i>Brainstorm</i>—now explore the ultimate child-raising challenge: discipline.</b><br /><br />Highlighting the fascinating link between a child’s neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, <i>No-Drama Discipline </i>provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears—without causing a scene.<br />  <br />Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, <i>not</i> to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation. Inside this sanity-saving guide you’ll discover<br />  <br /> • strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophy—and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart <br /> • facts on child brain development—and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages<br /> • the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a child—no matter how extreme the behavior—while still setting clear and consistent limits<br /> • tips for navigating your child through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair<br /> • twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents make—and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques<br />  <br /> Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, <i>No-Drama Discipline</i> shows you how to work with your child’s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>No-Drama Discipline</i></b><br />  <br />“With lucid, engaging prose accompanied by cartoon illustrations, Siegel and Bryson help parents teach and communicate more effectively.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “A lot of fascinating insights . . . an eye-opener worth reading.”<b>—<i>Parents</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “Insightful . . . The ideas presented in this latest book can actually be applied to all of our relationships, as it will help us in many circumstances to be able to calm down, have empathy for another person, and then communicate in a constructive way about our concerns and proposed solutions. What works to help children learn and behave better might also help our world’s leaders and large groups of people get along better, as many of us adults failed to develop these mindsight skills as we were growing up and we tend to sabotage our relationships with others as a result. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, or just a person who wishes to learn to get along better with others, you may find some valuable insights in <i>No-Drama Discipline</i>.”<b>—<i>Examiner.com</i></b><br /><br />“Wow! This book grabbed me from the very first page and did not let go. Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson explain extremely well why punishment is a dead-end strategy. Then they describe what to do instead. By making the latest breakthroughs in brain science accessible to any parent, they show why empathy and connection are the royal road to cooperation, discipline, and family harmony.”<b>—Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., author of <i>The Opposite of Worry</i></b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<strong>With the spate of publicity surrounding the possible health risks posed by childhood immunization, parents are no longer simply following doctor's orders and automatically having their children vaccinated. Instead, they are asking questions. The problem is the search for answers only leads parents to conflicting, one-sided information: doctors claim that parents are endangering their child's life if they refuse shots, while radical vaccine opponents claim parents are endangering their child's life if they accept shots. With THE VACCINE BOOK, parents finally have one, fair, impartial, fact-based resource they can turn to for answers. Each chapter is devoted to a disease/vaccine pair and offer a comprehensive discussion of what the disease is, how common or rare it is, how serious or harmless it is, the ingredients of the vaccine, and any possible side effects from the vaccine. Ultimately, parents will have to make their own informed decisions as Dr. Bob Sears is neither pro-vaccine nor anti-vaccine. But THE VACCINE BOOK will provide exactly the information parents want and need as they make their way through the vaccination maze.</strong>
