Man sieht mit dem Herzen: Ein kleines Mädchen, neugierig und wissensbedürftig hat den Kopf voller Fragen und findet in ihrem Opa einen geduldigen Zuhörer und Erklärer. Er weiss über viel Bescheid und gibt es sehr gerne an sie weiter, ob am Meer oder in der Nacht, immer weiss sie, dass sie ihn auf seinem Sessel finden kann. Aber eines Tages ist der Sessel leer. Verunsichert und um es wirklich nicht zu verlieren, packt sie ihr Herz in eine Flasche und hängt sie sich um den Hals. Aber nun ist nichts mehr wie zuvor, Sterne, Ozean, sie hat keine Fragen mehr, die einzige Änderung ist die Flasche, die immer schwerer und hässlicher wird. Bis sie jemanden trifft, der kleiner und jünger ist und voller Fragen, wie sie früher. Sie beschliesst, ihr Herz wieder aus der Flasche zu holen, benötigt aber noch einmal Hilfe dazu. Ihr Herz kehrt an seinen Platz zurück und auch der Sessel ist nicht mehr so leer. Ein wunderschön illustriertes Buch zum Thema Trauern und dem Verlust von einer Person, der man nahe stand. Aber auch wie wichtig es für ein Kind ist, immer eine Ansprechsperson für alle Anliegen und Fragen zu haben. Ab 5 Jahren, *****, Monika Hedinger.

Pokerface und Unschuldsmiene Befinden wir uns im Würgegriff unserer Gefühle? Oder vermögen wir unsere Emotionen zu kontrollieren? Spüren wir, wenn wir emotional werden, und spüren wir es rechtzeitig? Wie kündigt sich eine emotionale Reaktion in unserem Inneren an? Und sehen andere, was in uns vorgeht? Verrät uns das Gesicht unseres Gegenübers, was er oder sie gerade empfindet? Interpretieren wir Gefühlsausdrücke richtig? Und wie leicht lassen wir uns täuschen? Können wir lernen, unausgesprochene Gefühle bei uns und bei anderen sensibler wahrzunehmen und in angemessener Weise mit dieser Information umzugehen? So viele Fragen – und so wichtig für unser tägliches Miteinander. Der renommierte Psychologe Paul Ekman entfaltet in diesem Buch ein faszinierendes Panorama der Erkenntnisse aus der Emotions- und Gesichterforschung. Er erläutert, wie Gefühle entstehen und wie sie sich in unserer Mimik äußern. Und er zeigt, wie wir dieses Wissen in unseren zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen praktisch anwenden können. Damit ist sein Buch beides: eine spannende Reise in ein facettenreiches Forschungsfeld und ein Leitfaden für einen bewussteren Umgang mit den eigenen Gefühlen und den Emotionen anderer. Die 2. Auflage enthält ein zusätzliches Kapitel über "Lügen und Emotionen". Niemand in der Welt hat Gesichtsausdrücke so intensiv untersucht wie Paul Ekman. In Gefühle lesen präsentiert er – klar, lebhaft und leicht zugänglich – seine faszinierenden Beobachtungen über die offenen und versteckten Ausdrücke von Gefühlen, denen wir Tag für Tag Hunderte von Malen begegnen, die wir aber so oft falsch verstehen oder gar nicht wahrnehmen. Seit Darwins Der Ausdruck der Gemütsbewegungen bei den Menschen und den Tieren hat es kein derart breit angelegtes und einsichtsreiches Buch mehr zu diesem Thema gegeben. Oliver Sacks Paul Ekman hat mit Gefühle lesen ein wunderbares Buch vorgelegt, das helfen möchte, Emotionen richtig zu erkennen und zu interpretieren. Gehirn & Geist Paul Ekman, Pionier der Mimikforschung, eröffnet mit seinem neuen Buch Gefühle lesen allen die Chance, Gefühle besser zu verstehen. Hamburger Abendblatt Ein herausragendes Beispiel populärwissenschaftlicher Literatur. New Scientist Gefühle lesen wird jeden Leser emotional intelligenter machen.

1998 erblickte einer der einflussreichsten Internetkonzerne das Licht der Welt. Einer, der nicht nur die IT-Welt eroberte, sondern es obendrein geschafft hat, einen eigenen Begriff zu prägen. Googeln schaffte es sogar in den Duden. Die Suchmaschine ist heute für Millionen Menschen die Anlaufstelle Nummer 1, wenn es um die Beschaffung von Informationen geht. Und von der ersten Stunde an dabei war Google-Mitarbeiter Nr. 59, Douglas Edwards. Mit viel Humor berichtet er von den Anfängen, der ganz eigenen Google-Kultur und seinen ganz persönlichen Erfahrungen in der sehr speziellen Welt eines Internet-Start-ups auf dem Weg zum Global Player. Er beschreibt, wie Larry Page und Sergey Brin mit Eigensinn und einer leichten Arroganz Google dahin brachten, wo Google heute ist und wofür Google steht. Atmen wir quasi die Google-Luft in der Konzernzentrale und begeben uns mit Douglas Edwards auf die Reise durch das Google-Imperium. Dabei erzählt er uns viele persönliche Geschichten darüber, wie es ist, im wohl eigenwilligsten Konzern der Welt zu arbeiten.

Deftly melding ethnography, cultural history, literary criticism, and autobiographical reflection, A Feeling for Books is at once an engaging study of the Book-of-the-Month Club's influential role as a cultural institution and a profoundly personal meditation about the experience of reading. Janice Radway traces the history of the famous mail-order book club from its controversial founding in 1926 through its evolution into an enterprise uniquely successful in blending commerce and culture. Framing her historical narrative with writing of a more personal sort, Radway reflects on the contemporary role of the Book-of-the-Month Club in American cultural history and in her own life. Her detailed account of the standards and practices employed by the club's in-house editors is also an absorbing story of her interactions with those editors. Examining her experiences as a fourteen-year-old reader of the club's selections and, later, as a professor of literature, she offers a series of rigorously analytical yet deeply personal readings of such beloved novels as Marjorie Morningstar and To Kill a Mockingbird. Rich and rewarding, this book will captivate and delight anyone who is interested in the history of books and in the personal and transformative experience of reading.

Your emotions contain brilliant information. When you learn to welcome them as your allies, they can reveal creative solutions to any situation. For 35 years, empathic counselor and researcher Karla McLaren has developed a set of practical tools for the real-world stresses of family, career, and the quest for personal fulfillment. In The Language of Emotions, she presents her breakthrough teachings for a new and empowering relationship with your feeling states. Your emotions—especially the dark and dishonored ones—hold a tremendous amount of energy. We’ve all seen what happens when we repress or blindly express them. However, there is a powerful alternative. In The Language of Emotions, you’ll learn to meet your emotions and engage with them to safely move toward resolution and equilibrium. Through experiential exercises covering a full spectrum of feelings from anger, fear, and shame to jealousy, grief, joy, and more, you will discover how to work with your own and others’ emotions with fluency and expertise. When we relate to our emotions with respect and authenticity, we can directly access our innermost wisdom, unfold the deepest parts of ourselves, and heal our most painful wounds. The Language of Emotions gives us a much-needed resource for self-understanding and freedom: How to overcome addictions, distractions, and unresolved trauma—the three primary impediments to emotional ease Using the energy of anger to protect and restore personal boundaries Step-by-step guidance in the five skills of the empath (someone skilled in reading emotions) How to balance your “quaternity,” a metaphor for the interplay of mind, body, spirit, and emotions Honoring sadness as a source of release and rejuvenation Joy, the natural response to beauty and communion Praise “In my graduate education in counseling psychology, I found very little information about our emotions. Yet in my work as a therapist and educator, I’ve seen that emotions are key to healing. Karla McLaren’s book offers an outstanding guide to the signals and messages emotions send us, along with clear instructions for intelligent and emotion-supporting actions we can take in response. Karla has made a huge contribution to the well-being of us all; The Language of Emotions will become required reading in all of my courses.”—Nancy —Feehan, MFT, adjunct professor of counseling psychology at the University of San Francisco “Karla McLaren’s unique, empathic view of emotions surprisingly revalues even the most ‘negative’ emotions and opens pathways to understanding the depths of the human soul.” —Michael Meade, author of The World Behind the World and The Water of Life “This book changed the way I relate to others, and to myself, forever.” —Gavin De Becker, author of The Gift of Fear

A Theory of Feelings examines the problem of human feelings, widely understood, from phenomenological, analytic, and historical perspectives. It begins with an analysis of drives and affects, and pursues the nature of "feeling" itself, in all of its variability, through a close study of the distinctive categories of emotions, emotional dispositions, orientive feelings, and the passions. As such, the starting point of the anlysis entails an examination of the characteristics of human involvement, or our ways of being in the world. Building upon this assessment of the conditions of human involvement, the philosophical history and emotional economy characteristic of modern relationships is treated, and the nature of expression, social division, suffering, and responsibility is evaluated in light of the theory of feeling presented here. The book is recommended to anyone interested in philosophy, psychology, sociology, and cognitive science.
