The most significant act of love we can do for our spouse is the single act of taking personal responsibility—or “the power of one.” We cannot reach satisfaction in our marriage relationships if we don’t first look at ourselves and see where we need to change. Personal responsibility is the fuel that drives the actions of a healthy marriage.Usually, each spouse blames the other for their problems; this attitude only leads down a path of unfulfilled expectations and heartache. But marriages can be transformed, literally overnight, when a husband or wife learns the power

Reviews: Having been a runner now for nearly four decades, I remember buying this book when it first came out and thinking ’Wow - I’d never thought of it that way before.’ As someone who was consumed with the approach to running that getting faster as a distance runner was what it was all about, this book introduced me to the idea that running was more than my mile time. If you’re looking for x’s and o’s of how to get faster on the roads or on the track, or if you’re one of the lemmings being sucked into marathon running, this book is probably not for

Thinking Forth applies a philosophy of problem solving and programming style to the unique programming language Forth. Published first in 1984, it could be among the timeless classics of computer books, such as Fred Brooks’ The Mythical Man-Month and Donald Knuth’s The Art of Computer Programming. Many software engineering principles discussed here have been rediscovered in eXtreme Programming, including (re)factoring, modularity, bottom-up and incremental design. Here you’ll find all of those and more, such as the value of analysis and design, described in Leo Brodie&rsquo

The book contains 16 case studies from Central European countries and 5 case studies from the United Kingdom with learning points and recommendations for fundraisers. It is an outcome of the work of 24 experts within Topical Working Groups of this project and offers experience of two dosens of NGDOs in CEE countries and United Kingdom.   Fundraising is about people and long-term relationships with them.

The scientific research enterprise is built on a foundation of trust. Scientists trust that the results reported by others are valid. Society trusts that the results of research reflect an honest attempt by scientists to describe the world accurately and without bias. But this trust will endure only if the scientific community devotes itself to exemplifying and transmitting the values associated with ethical scientific conduct. On Being a Scientist was designed to supplement the informal lessons in ethics provided by research supervisors and mentors. The book describes the ethical foundations

FOREWORD This is a book of readings for thinking people, for those who value self-understanding. We might see this as self-help servings of healing words from early Buddhist recipes for emotional health, a full life and spiritual liberation. This anthology records my weekly reflections written from September 2009 to May 2011, in response to some current affairs or while reflecting on uplifting moments of being joyfully touched by the Buddha’s teachings, that is, by life’s simple and true realities. If you read between the lines, you would see that this is a record of your ow

Herbert Marcuse’s Negations is both a radical critique of capitalist modernity and a model of materialist dialectical thinking. In a series of essays, originally written in the period stretching from the 1930s to 1960s, Marcuse takes up the presupposed categories that have, and continue to, ground thought and action in our administered society: liberalism, industrialism, individualism, hedonism, aggression. This book is both a testament to a great thinker and a still vital strand of thought in the comprehension and critique of the modern organized world. It is essential readin
