From the bestselling author of Love's Executioner and When Nietzsche Wept comes a provocative exploration of the unusual relationships three therapists form with their patients. Seymour is a therapist of the old school who blurs the boundary of sexual propriety with one of his clients. Marshal, who is haunted by his own obsessive-compulsive behaviors, is troubled by the role money plays in his dealings with his patients. Finally, there is Ernest Lash. Driven by his sincere desire to help and his faith in psychoanalysis, he invents a radically new approach to therapy -- a totally open and honest relationship with a patient that threatens to have devastating results. Exposing the many lies that are told on and off the psychoanalyst's couch, Lying on the Couch gives readers a tantalizing, almost illicit, glimpse at what their therapists might really be thinking during their sessions. Fascinating, engrossing and relentlessly intelligent, it ultimately moves readers with a denouement of surprising humanity and redemptive faith.

In The Hedgehog Effect, Manfred Kets de Vries presents the case for leadership group coaching as an experiential training ground for learning to function as a high performance team. His group coaching model, incorporating living case studies, has been developed over more than 20 years of delivering programs to top-level executives and sets the standard in the field of leadership group coaching. Written for coaches, consultants, leadership development directors, and anyone working in or with teams, The Hedgehog Effect begins with an in-depth analysis of what teams and groups are all about. The intricacies of leadership coaching are illustrated with an elaborate example of a team coaching intervention. In Part Two, the author applies a psychodynamic lens to the dynamics of teams and groups, taking a close look at relationship patterns, how groups evolve, and the phenomenon of the group-as-a-whole. Part Three takes a more systemic perspective, addressing the challenges that change processes pose for people in organizations, and how to create best places to work. Kets de Vries supports the whole with the story of an organizational change initiative accomplished through group coaching.

Written by two former coaches for the U.S. National Swim Team, "Workouts in a Binder for Swimmers, Triathletes, and Coaches" extends beyond freestyle to include other strokes for masters and collegiate swimmers and coaches, as well as triathletes seeking skill-building in the off-season. The workout categories, which are more diverse than "Swim Workouts for Triathletes" (the previous book in this series), include distance, middle distance, sprint, individual medley, and stroke. Competitive swimmers and coaches can build a training plan using a variety of workouts from each category to improve speed and skills. Recreational swimmers, on the other hand, can realize new fitness levels by introducing greater variety to their swimming routines. Printed on large, durable cards, this new entry in the popular "Workouts in a Binder" series was specially designed for swimmers to use at the pool and can be easily read, even through foggy googles and flip-turn splashback.
