Author: Cheryl Saban
Psychologist, philanthropist, and family advocate Cheryl Saban, Ph.D., is on a mission! What Is Your Self-Worth? is a ''call to action'' for women around the world to take a look at how society perceives them, how they perceive themselves, and how women can adopt a personal mind-set (choosing happiness). You can form new habits! You can find your voice! Unlearn a perceived lack of control over your life. Uncover, rediscover, and express the worth that is innately yours, regardless of what others may say or do to make you doubt it. Your core authentic self is your truth ... what you believe in and care about, where you come from, who you are. With a strong sense of self, you are able to view outside influences objectively - as merely outside influences. With interactive tasks and quizzes for self-assessment and growth that uniquely personalize the book for you, Cheryl helps you proactively express and own your sense of validity. She reveals the simple yet powerful truth about a woman's self-worth through relevant research and by divulging her own personal life challenges and triumphs, including the horror of rape; the marginalization of divorce; the difficulty of single-parenthood; and ultimately a fulfilling 22-year marriage and a dynamic, successful life. Once you've rediscovered yourself, you'll be eager to pass this knowledge forward to your daughters and sons. One hundred percent of the author's proceeds from this book will benefit women's funds.
How to Work Less and Enjoy Life More: Easyread Large Edition
Author: John D. Drake
This book is for you if you are....fed up with the 12-hour work day and want to cut back....scared about the risks that come with working less....looking for more satisfaction in life....making a good income, but wondering if the price is worth it....questioning ''Is this all there is?''....wanting more time for your family or yourself, but uncertain about the best ways to achieve it. Downshifting is all about getting off the merry-go-round. It is written to help you move from the fast track to a more satisfying, less work-focused lifestyle. You will not find Downshifting to be pie-in-the-sky. Most of us need to work to earn a living. We recognize, too, that work can be a positive experience - it can provide us with a sense of self-worth, pride of achievement, and even an identity. But, as with most things in life, dependence on just one source for fulfilling our psychological needs narrows the opportunities for personal satisfaction. This book helps you to expand the possibilities. In Downshifting you will learn ways to cut back and still make a good living. I will show you how to convince your organization that the changes you want to make will be good for the organization. You will even learn how to cope with the scared feelings that you're likely to experience. This book will guide you through all you need to know, and do, to find more free time - not only for yourself, but those you care most about. I've written this book because I want to share my experiences in becoming a happier, more balanced person. As a workaholic I knew it would be difficult to work less and as a psychologist I knew why, but I learned how to do it - peacefully and profitably. I've never had the desire to go back. ---- PREFACE

Would you like to earn some extra cash? Do you have "stuff" you'd like to get rid of? If your answer is yes, this is the book for you. It's not a "get-rich-quick" guide. It won't tell you how to convert your guest-room into a warehouse or spend your weekends scouting library sales for "inventory." I call this "the book for the rest of us." It's for booklovers who want more for their used books than a few pennies in trade from the local second-hand bookshop. It's for folks who want more for their CDs, DVDs, games, and household "clutter" than they'd get at a yard sale. It's for folks who don't have a lot of extra time, but could sure use some extra cash. This book makes it easy to turn clutter into cash. If you've never sold a thing on Amazon before, this book gives you every step you need to get started. You'll find out how to list items, how to determine what an item is worth, how to package and ship your orders, and how to handle customer questions and concerns. Most of all, it will help you make the most of your Amazon sales. Whether you want to sell five items or five hundred, everything you need is right here. But Amazon sells more than books, and you can too. This book explains how to sell non-media items, including computer equipment, electronics, and even ordinary household items. So what are you waiting for? Start reading-and start selling!
Facts and Feelings : a Handbook for Women and the People who Care about Them
Author: Nada Logan Stotland
Publisher: American Psychiatric Pub
Where do you turn when you are wrestling with a painful decision? You turn to your spouse, trusted friends and relatives, to professionals, to religious advisers. But sometimes you want accurate information and suggestions all in one place, in a form you can use on your own. The decision to have an abortion is not an easy one, and it is not the right decision for every pregnant woman, even in difficult circumstances. Every situation is different. Women considering abortion range in age from nine to fifty-five years. They are rich and poor; married and unmarried; white, black, brown, yellow, and red; members of every religious group and ethnic origin; heterosexual and homosexual. Some have no one to talk to and others have too many people talking to them. Some are in danger from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. Abortion: Facts and Feelings is for women who are considering whether to have an abortion, women who have had an abortion and want to do more thinking about it, and relatives, mates, lovers, friends, and health professionals who want to help the women they care for make the best possible choices for themselves. Partners in relationships, families, and friends, and, of course, pregnant women themselves, deserve to have accurate information about this common, but controversial, procedure -- information they can use to make both personal and policy decisions. This book contains that information. It discusses * The practice of abortion in other times and places, and practical information about how it is practiced now* How to find out about abortion laws where you live, and laws in other places where you might go if necessary* The attitudes of major North American religious groups about abortion, and how to obtain more specific information about the approaches of your religion to your situation* The medical and psychological outcomes of abortion* Alternatives to abortion -- delivering the baby and either caring for it yourself or allowing someone else to provide the parenting* The needs and concerns of women in special circumstances, and of women's loved ones Most important, it will help you think through and carry out your own decision, whatever it is.
