Life mimics a marathon more than it does a sprint Obvious as that may appear, as proud and ambitious parents, we often push our children to excel in ways that may help them achieve some early successes - but may sap their stamina to endure the more difficult challenges which life may throw at them. What is more, our obsessive rush to get our children off to a good start overlooks the fact that in life, as in a marathon, an early lead hardly matters, but being too intent on coming first may leave our children lacking in many of the life skilld that a normal childhood would teach them. V. Raghunathan, best-selling author of Games Indians Play, offers an alternative approach that can be even more rewarding: life, he avers, is not a sprint, and it does not in the long run matter very much if you missed out on the best school, college or job as starters. As long as you give yourself the time to develop your personality and skills, you will still get where you want, at your own pace and perhaps far more happily. To illustrate, based far more happily. To illustrate, based on first-hand interactions, he gives numerous examples of many achievers, famous and not-so-famous, among them N.R. Narayana Murthy, Dr Kallam Anji Reddy, Dr. P.D.K. Rao, V. Mani, Ashwini Nachappa, Ila Bhatt and G.M. Rao. For those helping their children along for success in life, or rethinking their children along for success in life, or rethinking their own approach to it, Don't Sprint the Marathon will prove an invaluable guide.

The OCD Workbook is not intended as a substitute for psychiatric or psychological treatment by a qualified mental health professional. Rather, it should be used in the following ways: 1.In conjunction with ongoing psychiatric or psychological treatment. For example, you may be seeing a highly qualified professional who does not specialize in treating OCD. This book can be used to assist your therapist in the role of coach, guide, or advisor as you work through the steps toward getting control of your OCD.... 2. By people reluctant to seek professional help for one reason or another. You may have a desire to learn as much about OCD as possible, using this book as a guide for self-directed intervention. If you think you have OCD, we urge you to see a mental health professional who is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of OCD. A psychiatrist or psychologist can confirm an OCD diagnosis and help you decide if self-directed cognitive-behavior therapy is appropriate for you.... 3. By family members seeking a greater understanding of OCD. Just as it is not recommended that a doctor treat his/her own family for other diseases, we do not recommend that family members take on the role of psychotherapist using this book, even if trained as therapists. However, family members can provide valuable support as the person with OCD works through the self-help process outlined in this book. Chapter 4 describes how a trusted friend or family member can play the role of behavioral assistant.

Leaving home for college can be both exciting and scary, especially for young Christians who want to succeed academically, socially, and spiritually.The College Adventure Handbook provides what every college student needs most: practical tips blended with spiritual commentary designed to help faith-filled students stay on track. Most college advice books don't talk about how to make a student's faith a natural part of the college experience. Or they're so focused on faith, they don't deal with practical matters. The College Adventure Handbook is different. It's packed with useful tips for every aspect of college life, from passing classes and dealing with roommates, to avoiding temptations, stressing out, even finding a church that fits – all spiked with humor and presented in a format that can be referenced on a need-to-know basis. College students don't need one more textbook to read, and most of them don't want one more inspiration-packed devotional. What they need most in this extremely nerve-racking, life-changing time is some down-to-earth advice and practical strategies on how to walk a God-inspired life with as few missteps as possible. The College Adventure Handbook delivers all that and more.

"It's hard to talk clearly about investing and make sense to ordinary readers at the same time. Katsenelson gives a lucid explanation of today's markets with sound advice about how to make money while avoiding the traps that the market sets for exuberant bulls and frightened bears alike." — Thomas G. Donlan, Barron's "A thoroughly enjoyable read. Provides a clear framework for equity investing in today's ‘sideways' and volatile markets useful to everyone. Clear thinking and clear writing are not often paired - well done!" — Dick Weil, CEO, Janus Capital Group "The bible for how to invest in the most tumultuous financial market environment since the Great Depression. A true guidebook for how to build wealth prudently." — David Rosenberg, Chief Economist & Strategist, Gluskin Sheff + Associates Inc. "A wonderful, grounded read for new and seasoned investors alike, Katsenelson explains in plain English why volatility and sideways markets are a stock picker's best friend." — The Motley Fool, www.Fool.com Praise for Active Value Investing "This book reads like a conversation with Vitaliy: deep, insightful, inquisitive, and civilized." — Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of The Black Swan "Thoroughly enjoyable . . for the thoughtful and often entertaining way in which it is delivered. . . Katsenelson takes his reader step by step into the mind of the value investor by relating, in a fictional addendum to Fiddler on the Roof, the story of Tevye's purchase of Golde, the cow. He also describes his own big-time gambling evening (he was willing to lose a maximum of $40) and that of a half-drunken, rowdy fellow blackjack player to stress the importance of process. He then moves on to the fundamental principles of active value investing. What differentiates this book from so many others on value investing is that it describes, sometimes through the use of case studies, the thinking of a value investor. Not just his models or his metrics but his assessments. Katsenelson is an empiricist who weighs facts, looks for contraindications, and makes decisions. He makes value investing come alive. This may be a little book, but it's packed with insights for both novices and experienced investors. And it is a delight to read." —Seeking Alpha

Originell, faszinierend, abenteuerlich: ein Journalist auf der Suche nach dem letzten Geheimnis des Sports Seine Passion: das Laufen, sein Beruf: das Schreiben. Christopher McDougall suchte eine Antwort auf eine vermeintlich einfache Frage: Warum tut mir mein Fuß weh? Wie er sind Millionen von Hobbyläufern mindestens einmal im Jahr ernsthaft verletzt. Nach unzähligen Zyklen des Dauerschmerzes, der Kortisonspritzen und immer neuer Hightech-Sportschuhen stand McDougall kurz davor, zu kapitulieren und die Diagnose der Mediziner ein für alle Mal hinzunehmen: „Sie sind einfach nicht zum Laufen gemacht.“ Stattdessen hat sich der Journalist weit abseits der kostspieligen Empfehlungen von Ärzten und Ausrüstern auf eine abenteuerliche Reise zu den geheimnisvollsten und besten Läufern der Welt begeben. Eine Reise, die McDougall in die von Mythen erfüllten Schluchten der Copper Canyons in Mexiko führen sollte, wo ein Volk lebt, das sich seit Jahrhunderten unter extremen Bedingungen seine Lebensweise bewahrt hat. Die Tarahumara verkörpern den menschlichen Bewegungsdrang in seiner reinsten und faszinierendsten Form. Laufen über lange Strecken ist für sie so selbstverständlich wie atmen. Was wussten sie, was McDougall nicht wusste? In seiner Reportage geht er den vergessenen Geheimnissen der Tarahumara nach. Er verbindet lebendiges Infotainment über neueste evolutionsbiologische und ethnologische Erkenntnisse mit zahlreichen, inspirierenden Porträts von Menschen, die sich – egal, ob sie zum Spaß das Death Valley durchqueren oder einen Ultramarathon in den Rocky Mountains absolvieren – eines bewahrt haben: die Freude daran, laufen zu können wie ein Kind. Einfach immer weiter. Denn in Wahrheit, so McDougalls Fazit, sind wir alle zum Laufen geboren.

1600 Kilometer - in 10 Tagen - zu Fuß! Unmöglich? Nicht für Ultramarathon-Läufer. Denn: Für diese ist ein normaler Marathon nur Aufwärmübung. Sie laufen 50-Meilen-Rennen, 100-Meilen-Rennen und mehr. Sie laufen über 24 Stunden ohne Rast und ohne Schlaf. Sie treiben ihren Körper, ihren Geist und ihren Willen weit über das äußerste Maß an Schmerzen und Strapazen hinaus. Warum? Läuferlegende Dean Karnazes hat in seinem Buch seine ganz persönliche Lauf-Geschichte aufgeschrieben. Ein mitreißender, emotionaler Bericht, der nicht nur einen Einblick in das Seelen- und Trainingsleben eines Extremsportlers gibt, sondern den Leser auch dazu motiviert, den Mut zu haben, die eigenen Träume zu leben.
