Truths Half Truths and Little White Lies

'If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down.

'If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That to me is a better reflection of a human's life.' Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy. In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

"Body language and Behavioral Profiling" is a timely book on the vital roles of nonverbal communications and people reading in our everyday lives. We all use body language to communicate our innermost feelings, thoughts, and attitudes along with spoken words. Knowing the hints, clues, signals, and signs that people use in business and social settings helps people to interpret behavioral motives, and enables them to rapidly organize information for quick decisions that may be consequential. In addition, facial expressions, posture, dress attire, and gestures that people use all infer future behavior patterns. In this book, body language signals and signs are broken down into understandable topics backed by authoritative sources. Practical pointers help readers to adopt better image and self-presentation skills. The social science tools that are covered will help readers to "get" the motives and behavior of others, while improving their own intercommunications, which helps people make more informed decisions, meet personal goals, and more fully protect themselves.

In the battleground of the mind, many of us are ill-equipped. We say we want to grow, improve, and succeed, but so often we silently and effectively kill our own dreams by the things we tell ourselves. Shift Your Thinking provides truly unconventional, yet highly practical ways to re-engineer our thought-life and behaviors so we can attain the things we say are important to us. Dean Del Sesto shows busy readers how to make small shifts in their thinking that can have big impacts. These to-the-point readings will provoke, inspire, and move readers to improve all areas of life, work, and relationships through simple, yet critical shifts in the way we govern our thinking. Del Sesto introduces readers to provocative ideas like •If we were a brand would we buy ourselves, or keep shopping? •During tough times in life, it's easy to medicate ourselves with distraction. •When we begin to think less of what people think of us, it is then we are able to think. •If we gossiped about ourselves for a week, we might never gossip about another again. •Don't confuse being a visionary with the ability to actually bring forth a vision. •Wisdom is saying enough to prove our point, not our existence. Each principle can be applied instantly to readers' lives, making Shift Your Thinking a useful, valuable source of inspiration and motivation in a rapidly changing world.

Making the rich narrative world of Talmud tales fully accessible to modern readers, renowned Talmud scholar Jeffrey L. Rubenstein turns his spotlight on both famous and little-known stories, analyzing the tales in their original contexts, exploring their cultural meanings and literary artistry, and illuminating their relevance. Delving into both rabbinic life (the academy, master-disciple relationships) and Jewish life under Roman and Persian rule (persecution, taxation, marketplaces), Rubenstein explains how storytellers used irony, wordplay, figurative language, and other art forms to communicate their intended messages. Each close reading demonstrates the story's continuing relevance through the generations into modernity. For example, the story "Showdown in Court," a confrontation between King Yannai and the Rabbinic judges, provides insights into controversial struggles in U.S. history to balance governmental power; the story of Honi's seventy-year sleep becomes a window into the indignities of aging. Through the prism of Talmud tales, Rubenstein also offers timeless insights into suffering, beauty, disgust, heroism, humor, love, sex, truth, and falsehood. By connecting twenty-first-century readers to past generations, The Land of Truth helps to bridge the divide between modern Jews and the traditional narrative worlds of their ancestors.

New from Bestselling Proverbs 31 Author Suzanne Eller! Without realizing it, we've gotten lost in our own little lives. We've settled for "good enough" and days that run together in an unmemorable blur. We long for something to shake us up, but we're exhausted by the thought of it too. In her warm, vulnerable style, bestselling Proverbs 31 author Suzanne Eller shows how living and loving without limits has nothing to do with your own efforts--and it has everything to do with God's Holy Spirit. Unpacking the promises and teachings Jesus shared with the disciples about the Holy Spirit, Suzanne shows how you can stop settling and start truly living. When you learn to unwrap the gift of his presence, you'll find the world-changing, foundation-shaking, soul-stirring life of passion and purpose God is waiting to give you.
