Mind Wide Open: Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life by Alan Sklar

 
 
Mind Wide Open: Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life by Alan Sklar (Narrator)
Publisher: Tantor Media; Unabridged edition (August 1, 2004) | ISBN-10: 1400101166 | Language: English | Audio CD in MP3 + PDF (book) | 468 MB

Given the opportunity to watch the inner workings of his own brain, Steven Johnson jumps at the chance. He reveals the results in Mind Wide Open, an engaging and personal account of his foray into edgy brain science. In the 21st century, Johnson observes, we have become used to ideas such as "adrenaline rushes" and "serotonin levels," without really recognizing that complex neurobiology has become a commonplace thing to talk about. He sees recent laboratory revelations about the brain as crucial for understanding ourselves and our psyches in new, post-Freudian ways. Readers shy about slapping electrodes on their own temples can get a vicarious scientific thrill as Johnson tries out empathy tests, neurofeedback, and fMRI scans. The results paint a distinct picture of the author, and uncover general brain secrets at the same time. Memory, fear, love, alertness--all the multitude of states housed in our brains are shown to be the results of chemical and electrical interactions constantly fed and changed by input from our senses. Mind Wide Open both satisfies curiosity and provokes more questions, leaving readers wondering about their own gray matter. --Therese Littleton --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly
It's the rare popular science book that not only gives the reader a gee-whiz glimpse at an emerging field, but also offers a guide for incorporating its new insights into one's own worldview. Johnson, the former editor of the Webzine Feed and author of the acclaimed Emergence (2001), does just that in his fascinating, engagingly written new survey. Applying what he calls "the `long-decay' test" to gauge the information's enduring relevance, he chooses a handful of current neuroscience concepts with the potential to transform our thinking about emotions, memories and consciousness. In a charming device, the writer subjects himself to the latest in neurological testing techniques, from biofeedback to the latest forms of MRI, and shares the insight he gains into the moment-by-moment workings of his own brain, from the adrenaline spike he gets from making jokes to his intense focus when composing sentences. The structure is fluid almost to a fault, as Johnson illustrates, elaborates on and returns to his view of the brain as a modular, associative network, "more like an orchestra than a soloist." He introduces the amygdala, for example, as a small region in the brain implicated in our ongoing, nearly automatic interpretation of the emotional states of others (called "mind reading"), a function impaired in autistic individuals. But the amygdala, the brain's source of "gut feelings," returns in the following chapter as important in encoding fearful memories, a connection that helps explain why fearful or traumatic memories are so much more tenacious and detailed than emotionally neutral ones. Always considerate of his audience, Johnson weaves disparate strands of brain research and theory smoothly into the narrative (only a concluding section on Freud's modern legacy feels like a tangent), which leaves readers' minds more open than they were.

Michel Thomas Method: Russian Advanced Course

Michel Thomas Method: Russian Advanced Course (Michel Thomas Series) By Natasha Bershadski
Publisher: Hodder Arnold 2008-03-28 | ISBN: 0340948434 | Language: English | Audio CD in MP3 + PDF | 307 MB


Summary: Ideal for gaining confidence in Russian
I bought this course without having followed the Foundation Course in the same series - I'd learnt some Russian through other self-study courses, and wanted to take things further. I managed to get into this course straight away, as you can follow the lessons easily without reference to the previous course. In fact, I'd say that Russian learners across a range of levels could get into this quite quickly - most of the material is presented and explained as new language, and you can pick up any words you haven't covered as everything is translated into English anyway.

The teacher-pupil format isn't unique to audio courses, but it works particularly well here; the teacher (an amenable but quite strict Russian lady!) takes her male and female student through a series of short grammatical / vocabulary points and subsequent translation exercises. It's quite fun to try and preempt the students in these tasks, and beat them to saying the Russian out loud!

I was surprised how well and clearly the grammatical points were put across; for instance, I've not come across a clearer explanation of imperfective and perfective aspect in verbs than in this course - the teacher's way of explaining this particular point may not be the orthodox route, but it made more sense than any dry grammar.

In short, it's fantastic for teaching you some important rules to improve your confidence in Russian, and get you used to using what you know to communicate (and not overcomplicating things by translating word for word!).

Speak Mandarin Chinese For BeginnersThe Michel Thomas Method (8-CD Beginner's Program)
Michel Thomas Method Speak Mandarin Chinese Advanced

I am the author of the Michel Thomas series on learning spoken Mandarin. For the past 40+ years I have been studying languages and collecting language learning aids.

Teach Yourself Esperanto, which, unfortunately is now only available used, is bar none the very best textbook I have ever found to learn Esperanto. I have it beside me as I write. What an amazing and delicious book!!

There are several books which are used by English-speakers to study Esperanto. However, none of them comes close to the obvious love and brilliance that has gone into the preparation of this book.

The authors were reknowned British Esperantists who had years of teaching experience under their belts. They also have an intuitive understanding of how to make potentially difficult concepts very easy. These little pearls which occur throughout the book are more than worth whatever you pay for it.

These days there is a lot of use of the internet to learn languages and Esperanto is a prime example. We have the wonderful site, lernu dot net. Also, Google " don harlow + esperanto " and you will come up with a wealth of wisdom on how to learn and use Esperanto.

However, with all of the above you still will want a reliable book to guide you through the language.

This is the book.

Just get it. Never ever lend it. You won't get it back!

A real gem.
 

What Would Google Do? CD By Jeff Jarvis

What Would Google Do? CD By Jeff Jarvis
Publisher: HarperAudio 2009-02-01 | ISBN: 0061726338 | Language: English | Audio CD in MP3 | 196 MB

A bold and vital book that asks and answers the most urgent question of today: What Would Google Do?

In a book that's one part prophecy, one part thought experiment, one part manifesto, and one part survival manual, internet impresario and blogging pioneer Jeff Jarvis reverse-engineers Google—the fastest-growing company in history—to discover forty clear and straightforward rules to manage and live by. At the same time, he illuminates the new worldview of the internet generation: how it challenges and destroys, but also opens up vast new opportunities. His findings are counterintuitive, imaginative, practical, and above all visionary, giving readers a glimpse of how everyone and everything—from corporations to governments, nations to individuals—must evolve in the Google era.

Along the way, he looks under the hood of a car designed by its drivers, ponders a worldwide university where the students design their curriculum, envisions an airline fueled by a social network, imagines the open-source restaurant, and examines a series of industries and institutions that will soon benefit from this book's central question.

The result is an astonishing, mind-opening book that, in the end, is not about Google. It's about you.

You are going to knock'em dead......but, what about your table manners? Pass the bread the wrong way and your valuable client thinks you are a clumsy halfwit.

Tear at your lobster like an animal and you can stop worrying about getting a raise and start worrying about keeping your job. Etiquette matters.

God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything by Christopher Hitchens

 
 
God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything by Christopher Hitchens
Publisher: Twelve 2007-05-01 | ISBN: 1600240097 | Language: English | Audio CD in MP3 | 278 MB

From the author hailed as “one of the most brilliant journalists of our time”

(London Observer) comes a book that redefines the debate about religion in public life. With his unique brand of erudition and wit, Christopher Hitchens addresses the most urgent issue of our time: the malignant force of religion in the world.

In this eloquent argument with the faithful, Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion (and for a more secular approach to life) through a close and learned reading of the major religious texts, citing numerous historical instances in which sexual repression and outrageous acts of violence have been committed in the name of God.

Hitchens tells the personal story of his own dangerous encounters with religion and describes his intellectual journey toward a secular view of life based on science and reason, in which the heavens are replaced by the Hubble telescope’s awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix. “God did not make us,” he writes. “We made God.” Religion, he explains, is a distortion of our origins, our nature, and the cosmos. We damage our children – and endanger our world – by indoctrinating them.

Whether lifelong believer, devout atheist, or someone who remains uncertain about the role of religion in our lives, you will want to consider and engage in the arguments within this audiobook, and you will not soon forget Hitchens’s foreboding refrain: Religion Poisons Everything.

GET READY TO EXPLORE YOUR 'INNER SPACE' AND UNLOCK YOUR MIND'S TRUE POTENTIAL! There will be times when someone is making an important decision, perhaps a life-and-death decision, and you won't be there to help. At that moment, the only influence you will have with that loved one or customer or associate, when he or she is making a decision that will affect the rest of his or her life - is Remote Viewing and Remote Influencing. This unique mind technology will help you in every area of your life. Transform Your Health: With Remote Viewing you can detect health problems and threats to your health, and then take action both physically and mentally - with Remote Influencing - to protect your health or restore and maintain optimum health for yourself and your loved ones. While your doctor works from the outside-in with physical medicine, you help by working from the inside-out. Transform Your Relationships: Troubleshoot relationship problems by remotely viewing them, even before they develop. Sense the other person's needs and wants so that you can respond appropriately. Then use Remote Viewing to detect the invisible barriers they have erected, old wounds you may have forgotten, or not even know about, misunderstandings that have never been resolved. Then use Remote Influencing to establish deep rapport at deep, inner levels, and watch the changes that take place at the outer level. Transform Your Career and Your Business: Do you want a better job? A raise? Something more meaningful, interesting and satisfying to do? Do you want to start your own business? Bigger sales?

PUA Training - Supercharge Your State


PUA Training - Supercharge Your State
PUA Training | 2009 | ISBN: N/a | MP3/64 kbps | 43 MB
If you've ever been in the field then you know that there is a single component that separates a good night in the field from a bad one. That component is state. When you are in state it feels like you can do anything, you approach more, your jokes hit, girls are hanging on your every word.
But when your state isn't where it needs to be your results go down the drain. You feel at a loss for words, you can't get yourself to take action and nights are rough.
The key is to be able to generate the state you want whenever you want it. And until now, this was nearly impossible to do.
I've sought out one of the top NLP experts in the world and he's recorded a mp3 that INSTALLS a peak pickup state into you so that you can trigger it at will.

Just listen to the audio a few times and before you know it, you'll find yourself ALWAYS in state when you hit the field. Originally, I had this audio entrainment program created for myself and now, for the first time, I am releasing it to my students.

Are you experiencing physical or emotional symptoms that no one is able to explain? If so, you may be suffering a traumatic reaction to a past event, teaches Dr. Peter A. Levine. Medical researchers have known for decades that survivors of accidents, disaster, and childhood trauma often endure life-long symptoms ranging from anxiety and depression to unexplained physical pain and harmful ''acting out'' behaviors reflecting these painful events. As a young stress researcher at the University of California at Berkeley, Levine found that all animals, including humans, are born with a natural ability to rebound from these distressing situations. On Healing Trauma, this respected therapist and teacher brings you face to face with his effective new treatment - not a ''talking'' cure, but a deep physiological process for releasing your past traumas and instilling a harmonious awareness of your body.

Twelve body-based Somatic Experiencing® tools for emotional and physical release and the recovery of wholeness 91 pages including an Integrated CD to enhance learning. Twelve body-based Somatic Experiencing® tools... Trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering. But what is trauma- and how do we heal it?

As a young stress researcher UC-Berkeley, Peter A. Levine found that all animals, including humans, are born with a natural ability to rebound from distressing situations. In Healing Trauma, this leading authority brings you face to face with his effective new approach- not a “talking cure,” but a deep physiological process for identifying and releasing your past traumas, and cultivating a harmonious awareness of your body. With this book and the exercises on the included CD, you will learn Dr. Levine’s remarkable Healing Trauma Program to find a pathway out of unnecessary suffering, and help you “recapture the simple wonders of life.”

Love Is the Killer App

Love Is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends By Tim Sanders
Publisher: Random House Audio 2002-02-05 | Five CDs, 5 hrs. 15 min. in MP3 | ISBN: 0553712853 | Rar'd mp3 128 kbps | 263 MB

Are you wondering what the next killer app will be? Do you want to know how you can maintain and add to your value during these rapidly changing times? Are you wondering how the word love can even be used in the context of business?

Instead of wondering, read this book and find out how to become a lovecat—a nice, smart person who succeeds in business and in life.

How do you become a lovecat? By sharing your intangibles. By that I mean:
Your knowledge: everything that comes from all the books that I’ll encourage you to devour.
Your network: the collection of friends and contacts you now have, which I’ll teach you how to grow and nurture.
Your compassion: that human warmth you already possess—in these pages I’ll convince you that you can show it freely at the office.

What happens when you do all this?
* You become a rich source of information to all around you.
* You are seen as a person with valuable insight.
* You are perceived as generous to a fault, producing surprise and delight.
* You double your business intelligence in one year.
* You triple your network of personal relationships in two years.
* You quadruple the number of colleagues in your life who love you like family.

In short, you become one of those amazing, outstanding people to whom everyone turns, who leads rather than follows, who never runs out of ideas, contacts, or friendship.

Here’s the real scoop: Nice guys don’t finish last. They rule!


Amazon.com Review:

Is love really all you need? Tim Sanders, director of Yahoo's in-house think tank, believes love is the crucial element in the search for personal and professional success. In Love Is the Killer App he explains why. Sander's advice is to be a "lovecat," which despite the cutesy moniker is his sincere and surprisingly practical prescription for advancement both inside and outside the office. It starts with amassing as much usable knowledge as possible, which he explains can be done by religiously carving out time to read and then poring through as many cutting-edge books in your field as possible. It follows with an emphasis on networking to the extreme. Sanders offers concrete suggestions, from compiling a super list of contacts to ensuring all are regularly stored in an always-accessible format. And he concludes by advocating a true mindset of compassion, which he says involves sharing this knowledge with those contacts and ultimately helping anyone who in one way or another may ultimately help you. Through identifiable anecdotes and specific recommendations, the book promotes an undeniably feasible yet decidedly offbeat program that has worked for the author and could prove equally favorable for others who apply it. --Howard Rothman

In The Secret Handshake, top corporate consultant and USC management professor Kathleen Reardon explores and reveals the hidden rules on the ins and outs of corporate politics that you won’t find outlined in any employee handbook.
Based on hundreds of candid interviews with executives at Fortune 500 companies who have achieved their goals and joined the inner circle, The Secret Handshake lays bare the unstated conventions that govern and shape corporate hierarchies. Taking readers inside boardrooms to learn firsthand how the top decision-makers view and assess the employees under them, it offers invaluable advice on such career-building tactics and skills as getting noticed, networking, persuading others, knowing which battles to fight, and mastering the art of the quid pro quo. For all those who aspire to be part of the decision-making body of their organization, The Secret Handshake is the ultimate intelligence report on whom to trust and whom to watch out for, how to manage the inevitable conflicts that will arise, and how to read between the corporate lines.
