Ever feel as though the time is constantly slipping through your fingers, but you suspect the cause is not so much a mystery of supernatural proportions but perhaps... somewhat within your control?

The truth is, there are four major suspects when it comes to the crime of stealing your time; escapism, needless waiting, pretend progress, and half-justified excuses. But, unlike most crime cases, we are not here looking for the one suspect that truly committed the crime. In fact, we know that each and every one of those suspects commit the crime of wasting your time every day. Yet, if you really want to point the finger, if you really want to be specific about who to blame... you need only look to yourself.

That's the bad news; you are responsible for time mis-management. The good news, however, is that you are an unwilling felon. How do we know this, you ask? Because you are reading this blurb in preparation of buying this book. If you did not consider buying this book and hence reading this blurb, it might be that you truly do enjoy letting time slip away while productivity, goals, and dreams pour down the drain along with it. But, that's just not you.

So, since you are the unwilling evildoer and are plotting to manage your time, save your time, and create a more bountiful life with the time you gain... then you have at last found your secret weapon. Within this book are many clever strategies, mind tricks, and fox-like contrivances to cheating the clockwork time gods of the time they day-to-day gnaw away, and even outsmart your own natural time-wasting rhythms – making them serve you rather than run amok all over your life. Read this book and you won't have the luxury of mindlessly wasting your time again, nor will you be willing to accept the excuses you invent to procrastinate and waste your time. Take your life back by taking your time back, learn how in Who Stole My Time.

This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol.
Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health. But, they resist change because they fear losing the pleasure and stress-relief associated with alcohol, and assume giving it up will involve deprivation and misery.  
This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science, and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us.  Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. With Annie’s own extraordinary and candid personal story at its heart, this book is a must-read for anyone who drinks.

This Naked Mind will give you freedom from alcohol. It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of science and storytelling, This Naked Mind will open the door to the life you have been waiting for.

Healing Your Emotional Self

"Emotionally abusive parents are indeed toxic parents, and they cause significant damage to their children's self-esteem, self-image, and body image. In this remarkable book, Beverly Engel shares her powerful Mirror Therapy program for helping adult survivors to overcome their shame and self-criticism, become more compassionate and accepting of themselves, and create a more posititve self-image. I strongly recommend it for anyone who was abused or neglected as a child."
--Susan Forward, Ph.D., author of Toxic Parents

"In this book, Beverly Engel documents the wide range of psychological abuses that so many children experience in growing up. Her case examples and personal accounts are poignant and powerful reminders that as adults, many of us are still limited by the defenses we formed when trying to protect ourselves in the face of the painful circumstances we found ourselves in as children. Engle's insightful questionnaires and exercises provide concrete help in the healing process, and her writing style is lively and engaging. This book is destined to positively affect many lives."

Have you bought into the lie that success constantly requires more, more, and more? To achieve success, you must do more, work more hours, take on more projects, and accept more responsibilities?
