What Happy Women Know

release date: May 15, 2007
What Happy Women Know
The director of Canyon Ranch's award-winning Life Enhancement Program draws on the latest discoveries in psychology and gender-specific medicine to help all women enjoy richer, healthier, more fulfilling lives. In this innovative book about what brings women happiness, Dr. Dan Baker focuses on the five traps that can compromise happiness and leave women yearning for a better life. Unlike clinical psychology, which focuses on trying to fix what's wrong with an individual, positive psychology builds on a person's natural strengths. The root of most unhappiness, fear, finds a special expression in women, who too often succumb to the happiness traps of perfectionism, wanton wanting, people pleasing, seeking revenge, thinking I'm nothing without X, and overinvesting in their careers. In What Happy Women Know, Dr. Baker synthesizes a wide range of current research on how women uniquely respond to life's slings and arrows and how they can best bounce back from them. The book offers women a compelling set of tools that will help them accept the past and actively move toward a happier future of their own design.

One Man's War

release date: Feb 18, 2002
One Man's War
Escaping certain death—not once but several times—lies at the core of the riveting, real-life story of an American soldier during World War II. In One Man's War: The WWII Saga of Tommy LaMore, a B-17 pilot vividly details his experiences in war-ravaged Germany, from the horrific to the romantic and beyond. LaMore's saga began when his plane collided with another B-17 above France and went down. He then entered the French Resistance, where he employed his knowledge of explosives to bomb German operations. After an informant turned him in, he faced a death sentence and was sent to a Polish death camp. LaMore endured the camp's gruesome conditions and eventually escaped, just days before the Germans machine-gunned every man in the camp. LaMore's love story unfolds as he describes liberating a women's slave labor camp and instantly falling in love with one of the detainees. LaMore chopped off her hair, dressed her like a man, and freed her from the camp. After just three days together, the couple agreed to marry once Rosa checked on her family's well being in Poland. They jumped separate trains and never saw each other again. Years later, LaMore learned that Rosa had become a freedom fighter against the Communists and had been executed. Intrigue, passion, and loss imbue LaMore's fascinating tale and make One Man's War a compelling read not only for history aficionados and WWII scholars but also for those who are fascinated by the bittersweet nature of love in times of war.

What Happy Companies Know
"What Happy Companies Know will be one of the most important business books in our time. The science of happiness is a crucial strategy for the health and wellness of both leaders and their organizations if they are truly capable of `leading beyond the walls'-getting the best from people both within and beyond the organization."---Frances Hesselbein, founding president and current chairman, Leader to Leader Institute "...Relevant to both the CEO concerned with motivating workers and the employee figuring out how to improve personal coping skills."---Publishers Weekly "As a former U.S. Secretary of Labor, I've been involved in countless business and labor negotiations. I've generally witnessed situations when companies were at their worst, and can't help but think that if they were `happy companies' things might have been less stressful. What Happy Companies Know is filled with brilliant and original ideas that can improve the health of any company-big or small. The executive health and business culture principles are applicable to all areas of labor relations. This book provides the tools necessary to assist companies in the planning and organization essential for profitable and positive negotiations."---W.J. Usery, Jr., former U.S. Secretary of Labor "The authors' central concept that `happiness' is not a result, but rather the cause of success, will change basic business thinking. Instead of ROI, they focus on ROP, return on people, and encourage applying the techniques of the human potential movement to the process of doing business. This book should be on the reading list of every executive and every board member of every type of organization."---Jonathan Estrin, executive vice president, American Film Institute "Filled with practical ways to master `the softer side' of business, this guide will help employers effectively implement change and produce more cooperative, innovative, and dedicated employees...Thanks to the authors' thorough research and accessible style, readers will understand not just how to improve their companies, but why it's necessary. Original and intelligent-a `complete blueprint' for building a happy and successful organization."---Kirkus Reports
