    We all come into this world with appetites: for food and drink, beauty and pleasure, sex and companionship, meaning and significance. God created us that way, and he didn’t do it to tempt or torment us. Our desires are designed to keep us alive, draw us together, and teach us appreciation for life. But when they get out of control, our appetites can become destructive, depriving us of the things we care about most: our marriages, our careers, and our sense of identity and self esteem. In this readable and practical guide, bestselling authors Stephen Arterburn and Debbie Cherry draw on their extensive counseling experience to help us understand our cravings and manage them over the long haul. The key, they explain, is not in repressing our appetites, but realizing what it is we’re really hungry for and seeking out what really fills us up.

    Through many years of counseling, Dr. Henry Cloud has observed people trying to work out the most important issues of life—issues like relationships, career, fulfillment, meaning, pain, hurt, loss, despair, and addictions. What he has learned is that there are some universal principles, similar to gravity, that operate at all times and in every situation that simply must be learned and applied for people to live with strength, purpose, and joy. Dr. Cloud offers nine practical insights—from “Play Fair” to “Hate Well”—that take into account the truth about our fears, our hopes, our relationships, and, above all, about the potential in all of us to grow spiritually. If you sincerely want to “get life right” and quit repeating the same mistakes, here are Nine Things You Simply Must Do.

    This classic work by psychologist and social philosopher Eric Fromm builds upon his previous popular book, To Have or to Be? In The Art of Being, Fromm teaches us to avoid the tantalizing illusions of our consumer-driven world by learning to function as a whole person from a state of inner completeness or being. The transition from an identity of having to being creates a state of enlightened psychological and spiritual happiness. How can we realize and actualize love, reason, and meaningful, productive work? Fromm’s proposed way of living, based on authentic self-awareness, comes only through honest self-analysis. Wisely, he warns of the pitfalls of our attaining enlightenment without effort, or believing that life can be lived without pain. The tantalizing “spiritual smorgasbord” offered by our consumer-oriented world, Fromm maintains, only feeds our illusions of “easy awareness.” Confronting the psycho-gurus who preach these shortcuts to enlightenment, Fromm offers another way to self-awareness and well-being, one based on psychoanalysis and self-awareness through meditation. By learning to be centered in the self, the individual is less swayed by the endless pressures and dissatisfactions of the culture of consumerism. The Art of Being is one of Fromm’s most important works.

    Charm is good business. It can increase your income, boost your status, and establish and maintain your reputation. In many cases, it can mean the difference between success and bankruptcy. However, most businesspeople don’t fully understand the concept of charm. It ought to be a reflex, a conditioned response, to “turn on the charm” when dealing with customers, clients, associates, and employees—but it isn’t, despite the fact that the value of charm has been made clear through opinion polls, scientific studies, and just plain old real life. It’s true in politics. And it’s certainly true in entertainment, a whole business based on the money-making potential of charm. This is true for the small businessperson as well. Charm draws customers, whether to a garage, a dry cleaner’s, or an investment bank. Charm gets noticed. When a customer contacts a firm for the first time, charm can seal the deal. But charm is only partly innate. Much of it is learned, from your parents, from your friends, and from people like author Michael Levine, who has made a lifelong point of paying attention to charm. And you can learn how to make it work for you. How do you succeed in business without really trying? By charming your way to the top.
