Strange as it may seem, other people are not nearly as committed to our happiness as we are. In fact, sometimes they seem like they're on a mission to make us miserable! There's always that one person. The one who hijacks your emotions and makes you crazy. The one who seems to thrive on drama. If you could just "fix" that person, everything would be better. But we can't fix other people--we can only make choices about ourselves. In this cut-to-the-chase book, communication expert Mike Bechtle shows readers that they don't have to be victims of other people's craziness. With commonsense wisdom and practical advice that can be implemented immediately, Bechtle gives readers a proven strategy to handle crazy people. More than just offering a set of techniques, Bechtle offers a new perspective that will change readers' lives as they deal with those difficult people who just won't go away.

"It's not that we're dumb. We're wired to avoid pain and pursue pleasure and security. It feels right to sell when everyone around us is scared and buy when everyone feels great. It may feel right-but it's not rational." -From The Behavior Gap Why do we lose money? It's easy to blame the economy or the financial markets-but the real trouble lies in the decisions we make. As a financial planner, Carl Richards grew frustrated watching people he cared about make the same mistakes over and over. They were letting emotion get in the way of smart financial decisions. He named this phenomenon-the distance between what we should do and what we actually do-"the behavior gap." Using simple drawings to explain the gap, he found that once people understood it, they started doing much better. Richards's way with words and images has attracted a loyal following to his blog posts for The New York Times, appearances on National Public Radio, and his columns and lectures. His book will teach you how to rethink all kinds of situations where your perfectly natural instincts (for safety or success) can cost you money and peace of mind. He'll help you to: • Avoid the tendency to buy high and sell low; • Avoid the pitfalls of generic financial advice; • Invest all of your assets-time and energy as well as savings-more wisely; • Quit spending money and time on things that don't matter; • Identify your real financial goals; • Start meaningful conversations about money; • Simplify your financial life; • Stop losing money! It's never too late to make a fresh financial start. As Richards writes: "We've all made mistakes, but now it's time to give yourself permission to review those mistakes, identify your personal behavior gaps, and make a plan to avoid them in the future. The goal isn't to make the 'perfect' decision about money every time, but to do the best we can and move forward. Most of the time, that's enough." From the Hardcover edition.

Reader be assured this narrative is no fiction. I am aware that some of my adventures may seem incredible; but they are, nevertheless, strictly true. I have not exaggerated the wrongs inflicted by Slavery; on the contrary, my descriptions fall far short of the facts. I have concealed the names of places, and given persons fictitious names. I had no motive for secrecy on my own account, but I deemed it kind and considerate towards others to pursue this course. I wish I were more competent to the task I have undertaken. But I trust my readers will excuse deficiencies in consideration of circumstances. I was born and reared in Slavery; and I remained in a Slave State twenty-seven years. Since I have been at the North, it has been necessary for me to work diligently for my own support, and the education of my children. This has not left me much leisure to make up for the loss of early opportunities to improve myself; and it has compelled me to write these pages at irregular intervals, whenever I could snatch an hour from household duties.

After hiding in her grandmother’s attic for seven years, Harriet Ann Jacobs was finally able to escape servitude—and her master’s sexual abuse—when she fled to the North. Once there, she became a very active abolitionist, and her correspondence with Harriet Beecher Stowe inspired her to write Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl about her years as a slave. She published the narrative in 1861 under the pseudonym Linda Brent, and the book was written as a novel with fictionalized characters to protect Jacobs from retribution by her former owners. (Dr. Flint, i.e., the real Dr. James Norcom, is Linda Brent’s master in the novel.) The story emphasized certain negative aspects of slavery—especially the struggles of female slaves under sexually abusive masters, cruel mistresses, and the sale of their children—in order to play on the sympathies of white middle-class women in the North. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was published at the beginning of the American Civil War. It contributed to the Union’s and abolitionists’ war effort, but is today seen as an important first-hand account from an escaped slave woman and an important abolitionist. After the Civil War, Jacobs continued to support the African-American cause, particularly education, until her death in 1897. Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. Our list includes biographies on well-known historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Alexander Graham Bell, as well as villains from history, such as Heinrich Himmler, John Wayne Gacy, and O. J. Simpson. We have also published survivor stories of World War II, memoirs about overcoming adversity, first-hand tales of adventure, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Lose the Guilt, Love Your Instincts If the latest “breakthrough” child-development theory, parenting technique, or child-appropriate diet makes you worry or groan (or just want to lie down for a nap), it’s time to make way for Momfidence! Paula Spencer, parenting expert and mother of four, provides refreshing, down-to-earth proof that most of the business of raising confident, healthy children involves nothing more complicated that trusting your instincts, using common sense, and above all, hanging on to your humor. Momfidence! is: •Using “perfect” only to describe such wonders as a ripe peach, a cloudless day at the beach, or a husband who does diapers and dinner. . . It has no application whatsoever in describing motherhood. •Recognizing that there are appropriate times and places for lying, yelling, threatening, bribing, and saying “I told you so” •Sending yourself to time-out—preferably with chocolate and/or your spouse •Being completely amnesiac about the day’s exasperating transgressions when you peek in your children’s bedrooms at night and watch them sleep Based on her popular Woman’s Day and Parenting columns, Momfidence! explains how obsessing less and winging it more can keep you sane—and your kids healthy and happy. It’s a hilarious look at “perfect motherhood” that cuts parents a long-overdue break by reminding us that we’re not the amateurs here—we’re all experts, too. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Have you ever noticed how dysfunctional bosses come in many different disguises? Some mask their flaws by being insecure, others by being control freaks, or by just being freaked-out micro-managers. Others are panicky, self-doubters but act like know-it-alls, while still others are unconfident and overcompensate by giving you unrealistic goals and drive you into the ground expecting you to meet goals that no sane person on earth could ever meet. FACT Bad managers are traditionally the all-time #1 reason employees leave a company. Bad managers SUCK!! Oh yeah, there are other reasons why people leave their job, like; job insecurity, lack of empowerment or authority, lack of respect, no opportunity for growth, not allowed to use key skills, little or no training, no access to critical information, no commitment to employees, no opportunity for involvement in decision-making, coworkers suck, work culture really sucks, no work-life balance, unfair treatment, no recognition, not challenging enough, bored, communication blows, the job is not what was expected, little or no benefits, no performance feedback, no direction from leadership, people get away with murder, no one is held accountable, or work ethic in this place is fucked up! The list is endless AND as the saying goes...employees don't leave companies, they leave MANAGERS. We have spent countless hours in conversations, delivery training sessions, and conducting coaching sessions with people all over the world who are struggling with dealing with their challenging manager. There is no question about it, after, over forty combined years of dealing with, working for and being in management, our mission is to pay it forward so that you can minimize frustration and maximize effort. The strategies in this book are the same strategies we've trained thousands of people to use successfully in real life situations for years. Organizations around the world spend countless dollars developing their front line people to provide epic customer service for their customers. Why should so many who have grand purposes for change have to work for a crappy, underdeveloped boss? One of the things we've seen over and over is that managers are always looking for ways to train their front line people BUT they rarely pick up a book or take a management course to hone their own skills. AND if they do, they hardly ever put anything new into practice. One bad manager can ruin what might otherwise be a great culture and work environment. There are trillions of what we'll call "horrific management styles" out there which result in wasted time and wasted hard-earned company dollars, and they destroy countless promising careers, just like yours, if you let them. One of the first lessons in life is figuring out who we should listen to and who we shouldn't. It seems like a no-brainer right? If you have a choice (which you do), learn from someone who has actually accomplished what you're trying to accomplish. That's what we've done here. We've learned from some really great, and equally, from some really bad managers. We're grateful to them all. We've pieced together the best information on how to hack your manager, so you don't have to go through a lot of pain and frustration and waste a bunch of time dealing with a less-than-awesome manager, who will hold you back from achieving your career goals. Looking back on our careers as managers, sales consultants, marketers, corporate trainers and independent consultants, we've observed management styles (and we're not talking about Harvard-level qualities either) that have stood out. We've taken the best qualities we've observed and experienced and adopted them into our own management style. Are we saying we're perfect managers in the world? NO! AND, what we're about to share with you hasn't failed us yet.

The Anarchist Cookbook will shock, it will disturb, it will provoke. It places in historical perspective an era when "Turn on, Burn down, Blow up" are revolutionary slogans of the day. Says the author" "This book... is not written for the members of fringe political groups, such as the Weatherman, or The Minutemen. Those radical groups don't need this book. They already know everything that's in here. If the real people of America, the silent majority, are going to survive, they must educate themselves. That is the purpose of this book." In what the author considers a survival guide, there is explicit information on the uses and effects of drugs, ranging from pot to heroin to peanuts. There i detailed advice concerning electronics, sabotage, and surveillance, with data on everything from bugs to scramblers. There is a comprehensive chapter on natural, non-lethal, and lethal weapons, running the gamut from cattle prods to sub-machine guns to bows and arrows.
