Abstract
Sometimes the day begins with nothing to look forward to... (from back cover).
When a child awakens with dark leaves drifting into her bedroom, she feels that "sometimes the day begins with nothing to look forward to, and things go from bad to worse." Feelings too complex for words are rendered into an imaginary landscape where the child wanders, oblivious to the glimmer of promise in the shape of a tiny red leaf. Everything seems hopeless until the child returns to her room and sees the red tree. At that perfect moment of beauty and purity, the child smiles and her world stirs anew.

Andrew Solomon tells the stories of parents who not only learn to deal with their exceptional children but also find profound meaning in doing so. He writes about families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities, with children who are prodigies, who are conceived in rape, who become criminals, who are transgender. While each of these characteristics is potentially isolating, the experience of difference within families is universal, as are the triumphs of love Solomon documents in every chapter.

Abstract
The "primes" are universal and unavoidable patterns of group behavior that emerge whenever people attempt to transform systems or collaborate to solve complex problems.

An essential guide for 21st century problem solvers and change agents, The Primes unveils 46 universal secrets of how to:

Forge lasting consensus among competing interests and keep teams focused and productive
Recognize and eliminate the most destructive forces in an organization
Establish cultures of integrity
The Primes gives leaders the edge they need to succeed. Once the primes are revealed, you'll see them everywhere!

Dennis' life is boring and lonely. His mother left two years ago, his truck driver father is depressed, his brother is a bully and, worst of all, no hugging is one of their household rules. But one thing Dennis does have is soccer. He's the leading scorer on his team. Oh, and did we mention his secret passion for fashion?
When Dennis' friend Lisa discovers his stash of Vogue magazines, she convinces him to vamp it up and wear a dress to school. But in class, his hilarious hijinks as "Denise" are brought to a screeching halt when the headmaster discovers his secret and delivers the worst punishment of all -Dennis is expelled from school and therefore forbidden to play in the soccer Final Cup!
Can the team win the most important game of the year without their star player? And, more importantly, will Dennis gain the love and respect of his friends and family, even in a dress?

The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they?re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.

But even if they won’t say what’s on their mind, they still want straight answers. The Boy’s Body Book provides them, in a readable, reassuring, and illustrated guide. It covers a boy’s every concern: hygiene, exercise, teachers, peer pressure, sex, and siblings. He’ll learn about what’s going on physically (vocal changes, body hair) and how to handle academic pressures, deal with out-of-control feelings, make new friends, and stay safe through it all.

Abstract
After the death of his tough, guitar-playing, much-loved sister, Brian finds it increasingly difficult to care about anything. The only time Brian comes alive is in the few seconds it takes for the razor to slice through his skin. In "The Perfect Cut," Julie Burtinshaw has written an incredibly honest and perceptive novel about cutting, revealing why this dangerous practice has become an increasingly common form of stress relief among young adults. Told from the perspective of the grief-stricken Brian who, in his mind, has run out of options for coping, it's clear that while he makes some bad choices, he's not a bad person. The book ends on a grace note, reassuring young readers that even terrible obstacles can be overcome, and that where there's life, there is hope.

Abstract
In "The Wisdom of Menopause", through her personal story and case histories, Dr. Northrup discusses many controversial issues in women's health. Topics include: how menopause jump-starts changes in the brain: how to ensure the long-term health of breasts, bones, and heart: how the body adjusts naturally to changing hormones; why bestselling drugs may not be the best choice: how to deal with metabolism shifts, weight gain, sexual problems, and appearance issues; how to negotiate the challenges of “the empty nest” and midlife marriage.

Abstract
This CD guides the listener to practice breath work along with autogenics, statements used repeatedly to induce a state of deep relaxation. Listeners are encouraged to remember a time and place in which they experienced strength and a strong centre(reframed as “inner healers”). The music of Pachabel’s Canon accompanies the guided imagery of a tree Autogenic phrases emphasize growing in confidence and strength “every day in every way”. The closing image is that of energy rising through the body-as sap through the trunk of a tree. This helps to create a full circle of relaxation.
