A little book for those feeling a little down to keep note on a day by day basis of the various reasons they need to stay alive. One day at a time.
The condition of the struggle is either live or die, although on some level death does not exist. It is always considered to be an end, but not at all. And if this is so it would only be in the plan that someone cuts the thread of his own existence. Even if all the doors are closed in front of you, you feel that everyone is turning their backs on you. Even if the darkness of life's hardships does not allow you to see even a small ray of light, do not lose hope because you will still hear a voice that will give you the strength to get up, a voice either inside or outside who will tell you that life is not over. There will always be someone you can lean on.
THE INSTANT NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Reflections on hope, survival and the messy miracle of being alive It is a strange paradox, that many of the clearest, most comforting life lessons are learned while we are at our lowest. But then we never think about food more than when we are hungry and we never think about life rafts more than when we are thrown overboard. The Comfort Book is a collection of consolations learned in hard times and suggestions for making the bad days better. Drawing on maxims, memoir and the inspirational lives of others, these meditations celebrate the ever-changing wonder of living. This is for when we need the wisdom of a friend or a reminder we can always nurture inner strength and hope, even in our busy world. A book of timeless comfort for modern minds.

A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives. We are more connected, yet feel more alone. And we are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index. – How can we stay sane on a planet that makes us mad? – How do we stay human in a technological world? – How do we feel happy when we are encouraged to be anxious?

And he began to look for the link between what he felt and the world around him. Notes on a Nervous Planet is a personal and vital look at how to feel happy, human and whole in the twenty-first century.
Hello, readers. Manny Fulsom here. I wrote a book about what happened to me and events in my life leading up to it. What happened to me? It's actually the first three words in my book. Writing this book was not therapeutic for me at all actually, it was actually very stressful. I literally put blood, sweat, and tears into writing this book. I hope you all get the message of my story. That's the vision behind Stay Alive is to help all people, to Stay Alive, even when life is hard. I wrote the entire book on my iPhone 7. I destroyed my laptop with my friends with baseball bat and a shovel back in the fall of 2016 because I was struggling with porn. That was stupid now that I think about. I could've just sold it. I wrote a very vulnerable story. People say I have "such profound wisdom," but there is being humble. I aim for that. Also, in my first chapter I say,"The world deserves to know." That's not to be narcissistic, it's an amazing testimony I have, but I think everyone has an amazing testimony. Also, the aim is not for people to feel bad for me. The aim is to help the reader if they need it. I'm so glad the cognitive stuff and memory came back quickly. I want people to not have to go through what I went through because it's a tough situation.

Helping the Suicidal Person provides a highly practical toolbox for mental health professionals. The book first covers the need for professionals to examine their own personal experiences and fears around suicide, moves into essential areas of risk assessment, safety planning, and treatment planning, and then provides a rich assortment of tips for reducing the person’s suicidal danger and rebuilding the wish to live. The techniques described in the book can be interspersed into any type of therapy, no matter what the professional’s theoretical orientation is and no matter whether it’s the client’s first, tenth, or one-hundredth session. Clinicians don’t need to read this book in any particular order, or even read all of it. Open the book to any page, and find a useful tip or technique that can be applied immediately.
Human beings have always been specialists, but over the past two centuries division of labor has become deeper, ubiquitous, and much more fluid. The form it now takes brings in its wake a series of problems that are simultaneously philosophical and practical, having to do with coordinating the activities of experts in different disciplines who do not understand one another. Because these problems are unrecognized, and because we do not have solutions for them, we are on the verge of an age in which decisions that depend on understanding more than one discipline at a time will be made badly. Since so many decisions do require multidisciplinary knowledge, these philosophical problems are urgent. Some of the puzzles that have traditionally been on philosophers' agendas have to do with intellectual devices developed to handle less extreme forms of specialization. Two of these, necessity and the practical `ought', are given extended treatment in Elijah Millgram's The Great Endarkenment. In this collection of essays, both previously published and new, Millgram pays special attention to ways a focus on cognitive function reframes familiar debates in metaethics and metaphysics. Consequences of hyperspecialization for the theory of practical rationality, for our conception of agency, and for ethics are laid out and discussed. An Afterword considers whether and how philosophers can contribute to solving the very pressing problems created by contemporary division of labor. "These always interesting, often brilliant, and contentious essays focus on the question of how we need to reason practically, if we are to flourish, given Millgram's account of our human nature and of the environments that we inhabit. The originality of his thought is matched by his clarity and his wit."--Alasdair MacIntyre, University of Notre Dame
It's not just smaller, lesser-known companies that have launched dud brands. On the contrary, most of the world's global giants have launched new products that have flopped - spectacularly and at great cost. Haig organizes these 100 ""failures"" into ten types which include classic failures (e.g., New Coke), idea failures (e.g., R.J.Reynolds' smokeless cigarettes), extension failures (e.g. Harley Davidson perfume), culture failures (e.g., Kellogs in India), and technology failures (e.g., Pets.com).
