Book Summary:

"The most important book at the borderland of psychology and politics that I have ever read."—Martin E. P. Seligman, Zellerbach Family Professor of Psychology at that University of Pennsylvania and author of Learned Optimism Why are we devastated by a word of criticism even when it’s mixed with lavish praise? Because our brains are wired to focus on the bad. This negativity effect explains things great and small: why countries blunder into disastrous wars, why couples divorce, why people flub job interviews, how schools fail students, why football coaches stupidly punt on fourth down. All day long, the power of bad governs people’s moods, drives marketing campaigns, and dominates news and politics. Eminent social scientist Roy F. Baumeister stumbled unexpectedly upon this fundamental aspect of human nature. To find out why financial losses mattered more to people than financial gains, Baumeister looked for situations in which good events made a bigger impact than bad ones. But his team couldn’t find any. Their research showed that bad is relentlessly stronger than good, and their paper has become one of the most-cited in the scientific literature. Our brain’s negativity bias makes evolutionary sense because it kept our ancestors alert to fatal dangers, but it distorts our perspective in today’s media environment. The steady barrage of bad news and crisismongering makes us feel helpless and leaves us needlessly fearful and angry. We ignore our many blessings, preferring to heed—and vote for—the voices telling us the world is going to hell. But once we recognize our negativity bias, the rational brain can overcome the power of bad when it’s harmful and employ that power when it’s beneficial. In fact, bad breaks and bad feelings create the most powerful incentives to become smarter and stronger. Properly understood, bad can be put to perfectly good use. As noted science journalist John Tierney and Baumeister show in this wide-ranging book, we can adopt proven strategies to avoid the pitfalls that doom relationships, careers, businesses, and nations. Instead of despairing at what’s wrong in your life and in the world, you can see how much is going right—and how to make it still better.

Book Summary:

From the international bestselling authors of Willpower Why does a bad impression last longer than a good one? Why does losing money affect us more than gaining it? What makes phobias so hard to shake? The answer is the negativity bias - or in other words, the power of bad. As John Tierney and Roy F. Baumeister show, we are wired to react to bad over good. It makes sense in evolutionary terms, but in our modern world the lure of bad is, well, bad. It governs people's moods, drives marketing and dominates our news. It can explain everything from why wars start or couples divorce, to why we mess up job interviews or feud with neighbours. But there is good news. By using smart strategies from new science, we can train our brains to get better at spotting our own negativity bias, fighting back with our rational minds to manage the bad in our lives - and even using its power for positive results. Breaking bad's hold over us can help our own lives, at work and in our relationships. Properly understood, bad can be a good thing.

Book Summary:

Although there is no international government, and no global police agency enforces the rules, nations obey international law. In this provocative study, Franck employs a broad range of historical, legal, sociological, anthropological, political, and philosophical modes of analysis to unravel the mystery of what makes states and people perceive rules as legitimate. Demonstrating that virtually all nations obey most rules nearly all of the time, Franck reveals that the more legitimate laws and institutions appear to be, the greater is their capacity for compliance. Distilling those factors which increase the perception of legitimacy, he shows how a community of rules can be fashioned from a system of sovereign states without creating a global leviathan.

Book Summary:

Meaningful Change is Based upon Something Much Stronger than Our Own Self-Will.When we make the decision to change, we often do it because we are sick and tired of the life that we have been living. That choice is usually based on an earnest desire to do things differently; however, under our own strength, it doesn't always work out that way. God is in the change business. He has the ability to make all things work together for the good of those that place their faith in Him. God promises us that He can and will heal us through His Holy Spirit... From the AuthorWhen most people hear the word recovery, they first think about overcoming addiction to drugs and alcohol. While an important part of the process of overcoming addiction, true recovery is for all of us who are tired of anything that may be destroying our lives. It is for all of us who want to stop living in grief, fear, anxiety, guilt and shame. It is for all of us who want to separate ourselves from the issues of the past. And it is for those of us who want to turn our will and our life over to a sovereign God who loves and forgives us. My hope is that through this study will help you to strengthen your faith and grow closer to Him. Reviews…"Raw, life-changing and inspired, McCraigh connects us to the power that changes lives." -- Dean Angell, Senior Pastor, Lakeview Church, Canada "No matter how badly we've messed up our lives, this book shows we don't have to be alone". -- Judy (Mrs. Larry) Burkett“Awesome book! I have been in recovery since the mid-80's. I have checked out different Christian recovery books, but I really like this the best. It is written very plainly with a clear message of biblical truth. One of the things that I most like about it is that it is not oriented to any particular addiction. Instead it is written more from a perspective that we all struggle in life and this workbook applies to whatever your issues are. It is a good book for everyone...for those who recognize their brokenness and for those who don't! For those who are churched and for those who are not. It has a really comforting message and points us to the love of God. Jim shows how God can bring healing and restoration to broken lives. And more importantly, they show that He can use us even now...even in the midst of our brokenness. God does not expect us to clean up to come to Him. He wants us to come to Him and allow Him to clean us up. I highly recommend this workbook!” --- Abigail Wolfer, Indiana “Twelve Healing Words Help Readers Remain Close to God Through Difficult Times… Beginning with its compelling cover that touches a remote part of your soul, "The Power of Brokenness" aims to help readers grow closer to God through twelve special "healing" words. These words (some examples include "denial," "trust," "forgiveness," and "vigilance") deal with faith, action, and growth and help us move past the fear and anxiety of the past into a future of hope and everlasting life. In a conversational tone, this book presents a unique spiritual study of these common (and a few not-so-everyday) words that we rarely spend time thinking deeply about. Useful advice is presented in easy to digest chunks that can be applied to our lives.” --- Christina M. Downs, author of Simply Balanced: Bible Contradictions Teach Balanced Living“Wonderful Biblical Resource for 12 Step Recovery… This workbook is clearly laid out and explains in detail how to effectively work the 12 Steps. Each aspect of the Steps is discussed using clear Biblical references and principles. Excellent for individual or group use.” --- S. O. Brennan Tequesta, FL
