School of Hard Luck

release date: May 11, 2020
School of Hard Luck
Poor. Skinny. Immigrant. Dirty Jew. Weird. Weakling. Useless.Believing they were right about him and always afraid to walk home from school, Paul couldn''t get through a day without some form of bullying. Until the day Paul couldn''t take it anymore. They were always a group of 5 or more but this time he saw one of the boys walking alone, sans entourage, and he unleashed years of pent-up rage. "He had to have seen the fury in my eyes because he tried to dash away but not before I could chase him all the way to Rachel street. It was there that I unleashed the anguish of never having fought back. Brian took the hit for seven years of my constant struggle against bullying."Reminiscent of Mordechai Richler''s "Duddy Kravitz", School of Hard Luck is a coming-into-wisdom story that takes place in the same era and the same Montreal neighbourhood. Paul Steinberg does whatever it takes to make something of himself. In one of life''s ironies, he finds himself once again a victim of bullying, this time at the hands of a boss who humiliates him on the job.Paul Steinberg, award winning car salesmen, all-around athlete, family first kind of man, author, shameless 75-year-old.I''ve been told by people many times and over many years that I don''t matter. Well, I have a message to spread that is very important. And one that matters to everyone who has ever been made to feel less than. That makes them wrong, doesn''t it?

A Salamander's Tale

release date: Apr 21, 2015
A Salamander's Tale
Staring in the face of prostate cancer at age thirty-five and metastatic disease and proposed surgical castration at age forty, Paul Steinberg was forced to take two simultaneous journeys. The first was to transition from doctor to patient and surrender his physical health to a medical establishment he knew from firsthand knowledge would be using approaches that would be outdated within a few years. The second was a spiritual journey. His search for a higher meaning in his life sent him as far as walking over hot coals with Tony Robbins. Using the salamander as his role model, Steinberg, a college-health and sports psychiatrist, takes a look at the evolution of the regenerative capabilities of cold-blooded vertebrates like the salamander and at what we as humans have lost and gained in our warm-bloodedness. How do human beings regenerate? How do we redeem ourselves when our capacity for regeneration is limited? How did the prostate evolve, and how does prostate cancer develop? With wit and humor, Steinberg tackles lust and sex, and ultimately time and death and the gods. Having lived longer than virtually anyone else with metastatic prostate cancer, he uses his knowledge as a doctor and experience as a patient to provide a story of endurance and perseverance, weaving a tale of grace, regeneration, and redemption—just not the kind of regeneration and redemption that he or anyone else would expect.

Speak You Also

release date: Mar 10, 2015
Speak You Also
In 1943, sixteen-year-old Paul Steinberg was arrested in Paris and deported to Auschwitz. A chemistry student, Steinberg was assigned to work in the camp''s laboratory alongside Primo Levi, who would later immortalize his fellow inmate as "Henri," the ultimate survivor, the paradigm of the prisoner who clung to life at the cost of his own humanity. "One seems to glimpse a human soul," Levi wrote in Survival in Auschwitz, "but then Henri''s sad smile freezes in a cold grimace, and here he is again, intent on his hunt and his struggle; hard and distant, enclosed in armor, the enemy of all." Now, after fifty years, Steinberg speaks for himself. In an unsparing act of self-examination, he traces his passage from artless adolescent to ruthless creature determined to do anything to live. He describes his strategies of survival: the boxing matches he staged for the camp commanders, the English POWs he exploited, the maneuvers and tactics he applied with cold competence. Ultimately, he confirms Levi''s judgment: "No doubt he saw straight. I probably was that creature, prepared to use whatever means I had available." But, he asks, "Is it so wrong to survive?" Brave and rare, Speak You Also is an unprecedented response to those dreadful events, bringing us face-to-face with the most difficult questions of humanity and survival.

Recovery, the 12 Steps and Jewish Spirituality

release date: Sep 18, 2014
Recovery, the 12 Steps and Jewish Spirituality
Claim the Spiritual Freedom That Waits Beyond the Suffering and Slavery of Addiction “One of the important similarities between AA and Jewish spirituality is the statement in Step 12, ‘to practice these principles in all our affairs....’ There is no dichotomy of sacred versus secular. Jewish spirituality applies to how we eat, sleep, work, socialize and recreate. There is nothing that is external to the relationship of human being to God.” —from the Foreword A major new Jewish contribution to 12-Step spirituality. This easy-to-read exploration from a Jewish perspective is the first comprehensive approach to successfully integrate classic Jewish spirituality with the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and other recovery resources. With clarity and passion, Rabbi Paul Steinberg masterfully weaves traditional Jewish wisdom with the experience, strength and hope of AA. He draws on Jewish resources—theological, psychological and ethical—that speak to the spiritual dimension of the disease, and shows how the principles of Jewish spiritual recovery directly align with those of the AA 12 Steps. Along the way, he courageously shares his own personal struggles with alcoholism and addiction in a way that will help others find guidance and a new life path—and stay on it.

Spiritual Growth

release date: Apr 01, 2019
Spiritual Growth
This book began with Paul Steinberg''s realization that although religions are struggling to meet the needs and trends of our modern age, spirituality is not. Its contemporary manifestations continue to thrive, and Jews can be found throughout all varieties of spiritual leadership in America. Facing the fact that, for whatever reason, Jewish leaders simply have not done a good job of translating the ancient, spiritual wisdom of their beliefs into contemporary language and images that resonate with mass appeal, Rabbi Steinberg knew that the faith of his fathers was ready for a new spiritual message. And so he has written it--a message that is both particular to Judaism and uses Jewish language and text as starting points for a view that is universal enough to include spiritual concepts, terms, and expressions from many other spiritual traditions. Spiritual Growth: A Contemporary Jewish Approach provides both a language and a set of Jewish spiritual principles that are accessible and integrated with contemporary life, as well as being deep and authentically real (i.e., not "dumbed down" for anyone). It is a work that emerged out of Rabbi Steinberg''s own personal experiences, pains, and spiritual journey--the trials and growth documented in his highly successful book Recovery, the 12 Steps, and Jewish Spirituality. There are not a lot of works like this. There are books on Jewish scholarship, history, and theology. But books on Jewish spirituality tend usually to focus on a particular motif, such as the feminine, grief, aging, or Kabbalistic biblical interpretations. Spiritual Growth: A Contemporary Jewish Approach presents its message through the psycho-spiritual world view of 2018 but without the language and narrative of a therapist. It is an important contribution to the spiritual-seeking community at large, to Jews who have become alienated from their faith, and to anyone interested in learning more about what a historically vibrant spirituality can bring to today''s troubled world.

Right Price, Fair Credit

release date: Jan 01, 2002
Right Price, Fair Credit
Under the Army''s financial management system for spare parts, logistics customers receive budgets to buy spare parts from the supply system and receive credits for returning parts to the supply system, either for repair or because they are no longer needed in local inventories. The Army''s wholesale inventories of spare parts are financed by a stock fund, which uses its income from the sale of parts, net of credits issued to customers, to pay for repairs and procurement of replacement parts. Some installation-level, or retail, inventories are also financed by stock funds. During fiscal year 2001, the Army''s stock funds were in a period of transition from separate wholesale and retail components to a Single Stock Fund (SSF). As part of this change, the Army implemented new price and credit policies for spare parts. In this document, the authors introduce a set of criteria to assess price and credit policy changes in terms of their effectiveness in meeting the overall objective of maintaining the logistics customer''s ability to meet mission requirements while keeping weapon systems in operating condition at the lowest total cost to the Army. The authors then use these criteria to compare and evaluate pre-SSF,SSF, and proposed future price and credit policies, and define the characteristics of an optimal Army price and credit policy.

Dollars and Sense

release date: Jan 01, 2000
Dollars and Sense
As the Army has implemented initiatives to improve its basic logistics processes, it has found that these processes are hampered by a financial management system that is slow and inaccurate and that creates errors and delays. This report documents analysis supporting the Army''s effort to improve its logistics financial management (FM) processes using Velocity Management''s Define-Measure-Improve methodology. In defining the FM process, researchers developed process maps that showed that the delivery of conflicting information from the supply and finance systems forces units to create time-consuming, manual reconciliation processes to determine their remaining budgets. Researchers identified metrics to measure performance. To improve the quality of price and credit information and eliminate the need for manual reconciliation, the researchers recommended that when a transaction is first undertaken the prices and credits should be used for all records of the transaction.
