Abstract
This is a brief tale of two mice and two humans who live in a maze and one day are faced with change: someone moves their cheese. Reactions vary from quick adjustment to waiting for the situation to change by itself to suit their needs. This story is about adjusting attitudes toward change in life, especially at work. Change occurs whether a person is ready or not, but the author affirms that it can be positive. His principles are to anticipate change, let go of the old, and do what you would do if you were not afraid.

Abstract
Dealing with Depression is a workbook for teens that explains depression and teaches three antidepressant skills you can use to help overcome or prevent it. The skills are presented in a step-by-step way so you can learn them easily and apply them to your life. Sometimes these antidepressant skills can be used on their own, when the mood problem isn't too severe, and sometimes they have to be used along with treatments by professionals. Either way, practicing these antidepressant skills will help you deal more effectively with low mood and depression.

Abstract
This audio file is an interview on Q with author Gary Taubes about his new book, Why We Get Fat: And What To Do About It. He says exercise isn't the key to losing weight. And neither is counting calories. Taubes -- an award-winning science journalist -- says that much of the conventional wisdom, from doctors and weight-loss shows alike, is wrong. But many doctors and dietitians strenuously disagree with Taubes, saying that there is no one-size-fits-all weight solution and that to suggest it's that simple, is just plain wrong.

Abstract
In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, PhD, a leading expert on shame, authenticity and belonging, shares what she's learned from a decade of research on the power of Wholehearted Living - a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.
In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough, and to go to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.
