How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie is a classic self-help book. It instructs readers on ways to improve their standing with others and convince others to do things using strategic courtesy, conversational techniques, and proven methods of motivation.
There are three fundamental techniques to improve your ability to manage others. The first is to avoid any kind of criticism, complaint, or other type of negative tactic. Negativity only puts people on the defensive. The second technique is to frequently give earnest appreciation and praise. The third is to find a way to encourage others to want what you want. These fundamental techniques apply to the various principles for encouraging agreement and leading effectively.
The best ways to be liked are to become interested in others first, smile, and refer to others by name. People who are good at winning friends are good listeners and learn to talk…

There’s more to life than loving someone. But being single can feel like a death sentence. Why does being alone = being lonely? And why do we stop working on ourselves when we’re in a relationship?
After a painful divorce, “The Angry Therapist” John Kim realized he had never truly been on his own. He went on a journey to rebuild his relationship with himself, going from alone and disconnected to alone and fulfilled.
Kim has gone on to help thousands of clients find their own unique way to break free of expectations and finally live their truth. With Single on Purpose, Kim takes his signature no-BS “self-help in a shot glass” approach as he shares his own singlehood story and shows readers how to own their shit, break their patterns, and find a grounded sense of self.
Spending time to cultivate your relationship with yourself shouldn’t be something you only do when you hit rock bottom, go through a major loss, or have a quarter-life crisis. All of us, at some point, need to be single—on purpose.

From the beloved bestselling author whose award-winning parenting books have sold over 1 million copies—an indispensable guide to the unique needs of Spirited Infants™.
Does your baby bursts into tears when another baby in the same situation sleeps soundly?
Do the strategies your friends swear by not work with your baby?
Do the upsets and shrieking come out of seemingly nowhere and take forever to subside?
Moms and dads who answer “yes,” are the parents of a spirited infant. Spirited infants are the outliers—the exceptions to the “rules.” They are genetically wired to be alert and intense. Raising them takes special skills and patient perseverance.
In this groundbreaking new book, beloved parenting expert Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, Ed.D., offers her findings in the fields of neuroscience, sleep, temperament, self-regulation, attachment, and parent-child interactions, and shares what she has learned from hands-on experiences with families to bring this much-needed perspective to the parenting of babies under eighteen months of age, including:
Raising Your Spirited Baby is a shame-free, guilt-free how-to handbook that will be embraced by parents—and everyone who supports them—as a simple, trusted companion.
Billy-Jo McCabe never expected to become a social worker, considering the broken system nearly destroyed her. Shortly after she takes a job on a remote Pacific Northwest island, she gets a call about an adolescent girl who’s gone missing from a wilderness camp, and questions arise about the marks and bruises seen on the young girl’s body before she disappeared.
Roche Harbor detective Mark Friessen is called in to investigate the disappearance, but instead of working with the newly appointed social worker, he ends up butting heads and clashing with her every step of the way. Billy-Jo becomes the rival he does his best to avoid, considering the only conversations they have involve her pointing out his shortcomings and arrogance, telling him exactly where he can go.
But when Billy-Jo finds herself in over her head, she’s forced to team up with the man she tells herself is her polar opposite, someone she could never be attracted to, as he has the uncanny ability to bring out the worst in her.
The only thing Billy-Jo wants is to find the missing girl and see that she gets the kind of help she herself never got before being tossed in the system—before her father, Chase McCabe, saved her. So, swallowing her pride, she unwillingly forms a truce with Mark, and together, they come up against close-mouthed locals, island secrets that hit too close to home, and the realization that their case about finding and helping a young girl has turned into something far more sinister.

In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior tries to tackle this question, isolating and analyzing the many ways in which children reshape their parents' lives, whether it's their marriages, their jobs, their habits, their hobbies, their friendships, or their internal senses of self. She argues that changes in the last half century have radically altered the roles of today's mothers and fathers, making their mandates at once more complex and far less clear.
Recruiting from a wide variety of sources—in history, sociology, economics, psychology, philosophy, and anthropology—she dissects both the timeless strains of parenting and the ones that are brand new, and then brings her research to life in the homes of ordinary parents around the country. The result is an unforgettable series of family portraits, starting with parents of young children and progressing to parents of teens. Through lively and accessible storytelling, Senior follows these mothers and fathers as they wrestle with some of parenthood's deepest vexations—and luxuriate in some of its finest rewards.
Meticulously researched yet imbued with emotional intelligence, All Joy and No Fun makes us reconsider some of our culture's most basic beliefs about parenthood, all while illuminating the profound ways children deepen and add purpose to our lives. By focusing on parenthood, rather than parenting, the book is original and essential reading for mothers and fathers of today—and tomorrow.
“Read this unless you’re allergic to laughing.”
“If you’re wondering if there is a real man behind the quotes on Twitter, the answer is a definite and laugh-out-loud yes.”
—Christian Lander, New York Times bestselling author of Stuff White People Like
Tuesdays with Morrie meets F My Life in this hilarious book about a son’s relationship with his foul-mouthed father by the 29-year-old comedy writer who created the massively popular Twitter feed of the same name.
Sweet and sassy or predatory and hardened, sexualized girlhood influences our daughters from infancy onward, telling them that how a girl looks matters more than who she is. Somewhere between the exhilarating rise of Girl Power in the 1990s and today, the pursuit of physical perfection has been recast as the source of female empowerment. And commercialization has spread the message faster and farther, reaching girls at ever-younger ages. But how dangerous is pink and pretty, anyway? Being a princess is just make-believe; eventually they grow out of it . . . or do they?In search of answers, Peggy Orenstein visited Disneyland, trolled American Girl Place, and met parents of beauty-pageant preschoolers tricked out like Vegas showgirls. The stakes turn out to be higher than she ever imagined. From premature sexualization to the risk of depression to rising rates of narcissism, the potential negative impact of this new girlie-girl culture is undeniable—yet armed with awareness and recognition, parents can effectively counterbalance its influence in their daughters' lives.

“Scattered Links is a novel that pulls its characters from the gutters and, in the end, celebrates the tenacity of the human spirit.” A reviewer comment.
Thirteen-year-old Oksana lives on the streets of Russia with her pregnant mama and abusive aunt—both prostitutes. When Mama swells into labor, Oksana makes a decision to save herself from abandonment, a decision that torments her forever. But her plan fails when her aunt dumps her in an orphanage before she has the chance to say goodbye to her mama or tell her the secret that haunts her.
Scattered Links is a story of family and the consequences that come from never learning how to love. It’s a story of a girl’s inability to bond with her adopted family and the frustrations that follow.
How can a child understand the mechanics of forming a healthy relationship when she never had a mother who answered her cries, held her when she was frightened, fed her when she was hungry, or loved her unconditionally?
Only when the child meets a rescued abused horse, and recognizes the pain in his eyes, does she begin to trust again.
SCATTERED LINKS takes you down the street of nearly any Eastern European town, arm-in-arm with the orphaned. Michelle has captured the beauty and horror millions of children live everyday. The attention to detail is impressive. Having lived in a post-Soviet country for a time, visiting orphaned children, this fictional account rings with truth, from the heart-wrenching pain of abandonment to the realization of self-worth, and the love family and faith brings. Thank you for such an uplifting book, appropriate for the young reader, as well as adult. May your heart be encouraged, as mine was.

This book will help make pregnancy the experience of a lifetime.
The Octonauts are a crew of adorable animals who explore the oceans in search of adventure and fun! From their undersea base called "the Octopod," the Octonauts explore a vibrant world full of thrills, chills, and gills. The crew of eight talented critters, which include Captain Barnacles, Kwazii Kitten, Peso Penguin, and Professor Inkling, is always ready to embark on a new exciting voyage.
The Octonauts travel to a large reef city where they discover this bustling destination has turned into a ghost town! The once colorful coral has turned an eerie white and homes lay empty. So the crew visit different reef 'neighborhoods' from mangrove forests to seagrass meadows, searching for clues. Can they solve the mystery of the great ghost reef? Find out!
Combining the instant appeal of Hello Kitty with the intrepid spirit of Jacques Cousteau, the Octonauts will entertain and delight children, while adults will appreciate the stylish design and subversive humor. Lushly layered and brightly colored illustrations create a teeming undersea universe that will dazzle readers’ eyes, inspire their imaginations, and tickle their funny bones.
Called “charming and beautifully-designed” by comics scholar Scott McCloud, Meomi’s winsome cast of characters have attracted an international audience, from kids, parents, and teachers to digital artists and fashion designers. What is their next mission? Stay tuned for the next Octonauts adventure to find out! Immedium’s original four books inspired the popular animated television series that is broadcast on Disney Junior and Netflix and in more than 100 countries around the globe.

"I've had the pleasure of reviewing all of the books in Meomi's wonderful 'Octonauts' series, which are published by Immedium. I have to say, they just keep getting better and better, and the newest,The Octonauts & the Great Ghost Reef is probably my favorite yet. Not only are the illustrations so cute I want to hang them on my walls, but the story is great, and it's educational... Every page is filled with the cutest illustrations, featuring Meomi's signature characters!"
- Tokyo Bunnie
"The eight cuddly underwater explorers from The Octonauts and the Sea of Shade (2007) take a vacation to the Great Reef City only to discover the wondrous reef ecosystem has become bereft of both life and color. They learn that coral is actually made up of thousands of little creatures, and the buildings built on top of the reef have strangled them of sunlight. Even if children don't quite respond to the gentle socio-environmental message of learning to live in harmony with one's surroundings, the anime-inspired artwork and oodles of minute details bubbling around each page will have them deeply immersed in the fantastical undersea world."
- American Library Association, Booklist
"For many here at COLOURlovers, the illustrations and color compositions found in this brilliant series have continually been a source of inspiration, and The Octonauts and the Great Ghost Reef is no exception." - Colour Lovers
"The illustrations are delightful and a host of reef dwellers are beautifully presented, as other reef neighbourhoods are also explored. Despite this being designated a picture book for children 4-8, The Octonauts & the Great Ghost Reef is another fine example of top quality illustration that makes a fine book for anyone of any age to pore over."
"Kids should be drawn in by the zippy graphics and comprehend the message about conservation."
- Publishers Weekly
"The Octonauts are Diesel Oakland's favorite team of underwater animal explorers. Cute, colorful, imaginative, and action-packed, their exploits appear in four volumes...Their mission? To investigate the mysteries of the deep and to help their fellow creatures. Kids will love the fact that The Octonauts have their own unique personalities, a deep sea workstation in which they live and play, and jobs just like real scientist-explorers. Adults will appreciate the cool graphics and quirkyhumor. And both will look forward to the vibrant illustrations and little visual details that make each adventure worth returning to again and again."
