Audible Best Seller of 2017 Inc. 11 Great Business Books New York Magazine Best Psychology Books LinkedIn's 12 Books on Leadership to Read Two mavericks in the field of positive psychology deliver a timely message Happiness experts have long told us to tune out our negative emotions and focus instead on mindfulness, positivity, and optimism.

Anger makes us creative, selfishness makes us brave, and guilt is a powerful motivator. The real key to success lies in emotional agility. Drawing upon extensive scientific research and a wide array of real-life examples, The Upside of Your Dark Side will be embraced by business leaders, parents, and everyone else who’s ready to put their entire psychological tool kit to work.

Have you ever done something stupid, dangerous or self-sabotaging just to get one over someone else? Most of us have. Simon McCarthy-Jones draws on psychology, current affairs, literature and genetics to illuminate – whether we admit it or not – our spiteful side. What is that part of us that secretly wants our friends to fail? Did Americans put Trump in the White House just to stick it to Hillary Clinton? And then there are the legion of stories about toxic behaviour in supermarkets and over the privet hedge, ramping up to incendiary divorces, vicious business practices, backbiting politics and scorched-earth terrorism. There’s a hopeful message too – the upside of our dark side. Spite can drive us forward, and Simon provides a fresh perspective on the concept by showing the evolutionary benefits of spite as a social leveller, an enabler of defiance, a wellspring of freedom and a vital weapon in our everyday armoury.

Given the challenges facing educators today, it is vitally important to understand the workings of teacher excellence. Which teachers exceed state standards for performance and continue to exhibit passion and resilience in the classroom? Beyond subject knowledge and teaching techniques, what do exemplary educators know and do that could be adapted for use by others? Exploring these questions serves as the basis for Avoiding Burnout: How Exemplary Teachers Find Fuel and Cultivate Success. The featured educators—among the most distinguished American teachers—provide insight into their successful strategies with students, parents/caregivers, colleagues, and administration. Their honest and thoughtful voices provide compelling evidence of how they navigate today’s complex issues in education. Concise connections to relevant research underscore the value of their perspectives. This highly engaging and easy to use book is designed to spur thinking and conversation about what supports and inhibits educator success at all levels. In small meaningful bites, readers will learn what exemplary educators do, why they do it, and how it helps. In this time of high teacher attrition, we need to share ideas about how to succeed in the teaching profession.

How to blow the lid off status quo systems, structures, and ideas that don't work. While change can be good, it is almost always hard. It requires courage to step up to challenge flawed systems, ideas, and assumptions. Unfortunately, the vast majority of would-be rebels lack the strength and skills to influence others and forge real, positive change. The rest of us are ill-equipped to champion new and exciting ideas that just might save us. Based on decades of research, The Art of Insubordination is the essential guidebook for anyone seeking to be heard, make change, and rebel against an unhealthy, stagnant, or even dangerous status quo. The book also gives the rest of us the evidence-based tools, tactics, and strategies we need to become better supporters and allies of our leaders in change, ensuring that the best ideas, products, and solutions survive and win the day. Filled with great stories about dissenters in the trenches as well as science that will make you see the world in a different way, this book is for anyone who wants to see more justice and innovation in the world, whether that means one person calling out a wrong or a group fighting larger cultural problems.

"Combining leading theories of psychology and behavior with case studies, personality quizzes, and practical advice, National Geographic Mind explores the question we all enjoy asking- Who am I? A companion to National Geographic'saBodyaandaBrain, this whimsically illustrated reference explores today's theories of personality, mixing scientific theory with an underlying message-by knowing more about your own psychology, you can have a better life.aChapters start with the anatomy, evolution, and development of the human brain, then move into such interesting areas as intuition, creativity, motivation, faith, and ethics-all facets of a unique personality. Quirky, often funny, always thought-provoking photographs, cartoons, and illustrations bring the message home on every page. Interesting scenarios of mental health and mental deviance make for a lively, readable narrative that combines today's leading theories in the science of the mind and personality with life-enhancing questions, quizzes, practices, and tools for self-discovery. An entertaining book about science, National Geographic Mindconnects with the reader in a very personal and ultimately helpful way."

"Take a walk down the dark side of life with Carver Bascombe, turned-off vet and turned-on private detective, and meet his girlfriend Gwen Norris, the senator's daughter and bestower of the kinds of gifts most people don't know exist. It was a perfect relationship until young Ralphie Hart was brutalized and murdered, and Carver was pitched into the bizarre and colorful world of San Francisco's art scene where certain paintings are sketches for death and portraits of destruction."--Back cover.

An all-in-one guide to understanding and managing the dark side of our digital lives. It all started out so well: the online world began as an effective tool for communication that carried with it a great promise to level the playing field and eliminate borders. But it’s morphed into something totally unintended. We’ve all had to endure the troll that derails a generally benign conversation; or received that scam email from a wealthy Nigerian prince; or felt the strange feeling of being watched and tracked by advertising companies as we navigate the web. Welcome to the modern internet. These are but a few of the topics that The Dark Side of Our Digital World: And What You Can Do about It examines to get at the root causes of our current problems with information technology, social media, and problematic online behavior. The book explores the issues raised by the negative side of information technology, including surveillance and spying, declining privacy, information overload, surveillance capitalism and big data analytics, conspiracy theories and fake news, misinformation and disinformation, trolling and phishing. What’s ultimately at stake is how we are able to cope with increasingly invasive anti-social behaviors, the overall decline of privacy in the face of total surveillance technologies, and the lack of a quality online experience that doesn’t devolve into flame wars and insults. The future of the internet as well as our societies depends upon our ability to discern truth from lies and reality from propaganda. The book will therefore also examine the possible directions we could take to improve the situation, looking at solutions in the areas of psychology and behavioral conditioning, social engineering through nudging techniques, the development of e-democracy movements, and the implementation of public policy.
