<p>A long-haul mover’s rollicking account of life out on the Big Slab.</p><br /><p>More than thirty years ago, Finn Murphy dropped out of college to become a long-haul trucker. Since then he’s covered more than a million miles packing, loading, and hauling people’s belongings all over America. Known by his trucker handle as U-Turn, he spends his days (and many of his nights) in a 53-foot eighteen-wheeler he calls Cassidy.</p><br /><p>In <em>The Long Haul</em>, Murphy offers a trucker’s-eye view of America on the move. Going far beyond the myth of the American road trip, he whisks readers down the I-95 Powerlane, across the Florida Everglades, in and out of the truck stops of the Midwest, and through the steep grades of the Rocky Mountains. As he crisscrosses the country, Murphy recounts with wit, candor, and charm the America he has seen change over the decades, from the hollowing-out of small towns to changing tastes in culture and home furnishings.</p><br /><p>Some 40 million Americans move each year, and very few have any idea what they’re getting into or the kind of person to whom they are relinquishing their worldly goods. <em>The Long Haul</em> is also a behind-the-scenes look at the moving industry, revealing what really happens when we call in “the movers.”</p><br /><p>Through it all, Murphy tells poignant, funny, and often haunting stories of the people he encounters on the job: a feisty hoarder in New Hampshire; a Virginia homeowner raging when Murphy’s truck accidentally runs down a stand of trees; an ex-banker in Colorado who treats Finn and his crew with undisguised contempt; a widow who needs Murphy to bring her archeologist husband’s remains and relics to a Navajo burial ceremony in New Mexico. These experiences inspire Finn’s memorable reflections on work, class, and the bonds we form with the things we own and the places we live.</p><br /><p>Brimming with personality and filled with great characters, <em>The Long Haul</em> is a resonant portrait of the enduring appeal of manual labor in the dark underbelly of the American Dream.</p>

The top-selling auto repair guide--400,000 copies sold--now extensively reorganized and updated<br /> <br /> Forty-eight percent of U.S. households perform at least some automobile maintenance on their own, with women now accounting for one third of this $34 billion automotive do-it-yourself market.

For anyone who wants to save money on car repairs and maintenance, this book is the place to start.<br /> <br /> Deanna Sclar (Long Beach, CA), an acclaimed auto repair expert and consumer advocate, has contributed to the Los Angeles Times and has been interviewed on the Today show, NBC Nightly News, and other television programs.

<hr /><h2><b>Cognitive Behavioral Therapy</b></h2><h3><b>Master Your Brain and Emotions to Overcome Anxiety, Depression and Negative Thoughts</b></h3><hr /><p>Most of us are trapped in a roller-coaster of ‘automatic’ thoughts, emotions, and actions. Try as hard as we might, when we see certain people or heard certain things, we get emotional. These intense emotions then trigger us to say certain things out of habit. We also often feel pushed to act a certain way. This all plays out so quickly we feel we really have no control about it. Very much like being on a roller-coaster. Might as well just brace yourself for the ride, right? After all, it’s too easy to conclude that your ‘automatic’ reactions of fear, anxiety, depression, or anger are simply part of ‘who you are as a person!’</p><p>Well, you don’t have to keep making the same wrong decisions over and over again. You don’t have to be miserable, powerless, or small. You don’t have to keep defining yourself as a person who doesn’t have much power over your life and your world. What if I told you that you CAN get off the careening roller-coaster. that is your life? What if you can put an end to negative emotional reactions that consistently and constantly put you in a bad spot?</p><p>The answer? <b>Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a one of the most respected, thoroughly tested, and vetted psychiatric counseling systems in existence. Countless people have been liberated from personal prisons of helplessness, powerlessness, failure, anxiety, depression, and compulsive behaviors.</b> Best of all, CBT doesn’t necessarily involve mind altering medication, hypnosis, or electro shock therapy. Instead, CBT works with a very basic premise: whatever negative thoughts, psychology, verbal and habitual behavioral patterns you have are products of how you choose to interpret situations. These interpretations, in turn, are products of certain ‘truths’ you choose to believe.</p><p>CBT zeroes in on the central fact that you have a lot of choice in how your life plays out. <b>By simply choosing to think in a different way and interpret certain experiences differently, you can produce a massive positive change in your life.</b> You no longer have to feel like certain negative mental and emotional states are natural and ‘automatic’ responses to certain triggers in your life.</p><p><b>This workbook teaches you key Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy principles that will enable you to become a happier, more fulfilled, more effective, and more content person. Stop thinking that your world is spiraling out of control or you don’t have control over your life. This book/ guide teaches simple clear techniques that will enable you to start living life to the fullest.</b></p><h2><b>Get this book today on Limited Time Discount Only. </b></h2><h3><b>Go To The Top Right Of This Page and Click Buy Now!</b></h3>
