What do we wish most for our children? Next to being healthy, we want them to be happy, of course! Fortunately, a wide array of scientific studies show that happiness is a learned behavior, a muscle we can help our children build and maintain. Drawing on what psychology, sociology, and neuroscience have proven about confidence, gratefulness, and optimism, and using her own chaotic and often hilarious real-world adventures as a mom to demonstrate do’s and don’ts in action, Christine Carter, Ph.D, executive director of UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, boils the process down to 10 simple happiness-inducing steps. With great wit, wisdom, and compassion, Carter covers the day-to-day pressure points of parenting—how best to discipline, get kids to school and activities on time, and get dinner on the table—as well as the more elusive issues of helping children build healthy friendships and develop emotional intelligence. In these 10 key steps, she helps you interact confidently and consistently with your kids to foster the skills, habits, and mindsets that will set the stage for positive emotions now and into their adolescence and beyond. Inside you will discover • the best way avoid raising a brat—changing bad habits into good ones • tips on how to change your kids’ attitude into gratitude • the trap of trying to be perfect—and how to stay clear of its pitfalls • the right way to praise kids—and why too much of the wrong kind can be just as bad as not enough • the spirit of kindness—how to raise kind, compassionate, and loving children • strategies for inspiring kids to do boring (but necessary) tasks—and become more self-motivated in the process Complete with a series of “try this” tips, secrets, and strategies, Raising Happiness is a one-of-a-kind resource that will help you instill joy in your kids—and, in the process, become more joyful yourself.

Do you feel challenged by the problems you face? Are you afraid of what your future might hold? Are you ready to start learning some powerful thinking skills that schools don't yet teach? If so, reading this book will help you more easily solve whatever real-life problems you now face. You can use your improved problem-solving skills to gain a competitive advantage in the workplace, to reach higher levels of success in your chosen field, to improve your relationships, to raise children who are better prepared for their future, and to create valuable innovations. Yes, these are bold claims. Yet in the words of a highly respected critic (J. Baldwin), this book “live[s] up to its pretentious [sub]title,” which is “A Complete Course in the Art of Creating Solutions to Problems of Any Kind.” Published around the world in 9 languages, the printed editions have helped — and inspired — tens of thousands of readers. The new more-affordable ebook edition is now available to quickly download to your tablet or ebook reader. Most creative-problem-solving books basically demonstrate cutesy mind tricks, or focus on areas such as entertainment and furniture design where simply being different is a marketing advantage, or waste your time with examples that involve artificial games and puzzles. Instead, this book takes you far beyond what those introductory books only begin to teach. This heavy-duty toolbox is packed with 79 powerful techniques that will lighten your heavy load, bring greater joy into your life, and transform vulnerability into empowerment. More than two hundred diverse real-life examples throughout the book clearly demonstrate how to apply the tools in this toolbox. These examples include behind-the-scene stories about well-known innovations such as the typewriter and basketball, and the examples cover a diversity of situations including solving business problems, raising children, improving relationships, looking for employment, inventing, and solving global problems. Are we living during challenging times, or exciting times? The choice is yours. Reading this book — and making use of the practical tools it contains — will shift you away from unnecessary suffering, and help you (and those who are close to you) reach greater excitement, opportunities, and rewards. P.S. If you would rather cling to the problems you face than part with a few declining-in-value dollars, then you might be interested in reading the author's less-expensive ebook titled “Ending the Hidden Unfairness in U.S. Elections.” The last chapter of that book explains how the United States — or any nation — can dramatically increase its economic prosperity. Those solutions were developed while the author was writing “The Creative Problem Solver's Toolbox” because he wanted to be sure that the techniques in this toolbox were powerful enough to create solutions to the world's biggest problems.

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation: *Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives *Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters *Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward. Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.
