While many books can be enjoyed for their basic stories, there are often deeper literary meanings interwoven in these texts. How to Read Literature Like a Professor helps us to discover those hidden truths by looking at literature with the eyes—and the literary codes—of the ultimate professional reader: the college professor.
What does it mean when a literary hero travels along a dusty road? When he hands a drink to his companion? When he's drenched in a sudden rain shower? Ranging from major themes to literary models, narrative devices, and form, Thomas C. Foster provides us with a broad overview of literature—a world where a road leads to a quest, a shared meal may signify a communion, and rain, whether cleansing or destructive, is never just a shower—and shows us how to make our reading experience more enriching, satisfying, and fun.
This revised edition includes new chapters, a new preface, and a new epilogue, and incorporates updated teaching points that Foster has developed over the past decade.

Confidence is a game changer and a key component in living the best life possible. So what if you don’t have it? Russ Harris shows us where the confidence gap has taken root and how we can overcome the myths it has entrenched in a success-driven society.
Grounded and flexible in his approach, Harris starts a conversation about making friends with difficult feelings and accepting the mind’s relentless ‘radio’ commentary; while defusing fear and self-judgement with openness. He highlights simple steps to achieving genuine confidence, based on a pattern of mindful, values-based living; with a spark of curiosity and a long overdue reality check.
