You, unstuck : you are the solution to your greatest problem
Smith, Seth Adam
Oakland, CA : Berrett-Koehler Publishers, Inc., a BK Life Book, 2015
"All of us feel trapped, stuck, or unable to move forward in life at some point. What is it that's holding us back? According to Seth Adam Smith, it's who, not what. Ultimately, the greatest obstacle to achieving your full potential is you. But you are also the solution to your greatest problem. This book combats a destructive mind-set that we all sometimes fall into: I can't change. I am the victim of my circumstances, and I am confined by my personal limitations. This philosophy, though intangible, destroys more dreams and limits more lives than any actual, physical obstacle. To show us how to overcome this philosophy of fear, Smith draws on literature, history, and his personal experiences with chronic depression, as well as encounters with remarkable "ordinary" people who've embraced a different philosophy: the belief that we possess the power to lift ourselves out of the abyss and into the light"--Back cover.

Emotions and the body
Gelder, Beatrice de, 1944-
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2016]
Introduction -- Why bodies? -- Face perception and its context -- Measuring emotions: measuring the impossible? -- Seeing actions: understanding intentions and feeling emotions -- The functional brain basis of bodily expressions -- Conscious and unconscious emotion traffic -- The time course of emotional body perception -- Gender, culture, and context differences in the recognition of bodily expressions -- Body consciousness, body perception deficits, and virtual bodies -- Interactions, or why it takes more than one to tango.

"The face has long been considered the gateway to understanding human emotion and cognition. Body language is an equally powerful means of communication, however. Although faces and bodies can express themselves in many similar ways, examining their differences may be the best way to learn how bodies communicate. Exploring the body's role in perceiving and expressing emotion has opened broad new avenues for research in cognitive neuroscience. Emotions and the Body discusses the neural basis and temporal processing signatures of emotional body language by drawing on state-of-the-art research in the neuropsychology of emotional face and body disorders. Beatrice de Gelder explores a range of fascinating questions such as: How do facial and bodily expressions interact? What role does emotional body language play in social interaction? If body language is perceived even with limited attention and reduced visual awareness, as studies with patients have shown, then what is the nature of emotional experience, and how is awareness affected? Are some cultures less expressive in their body language? And are there notable gender and cultural differences in emotional body language, as is the case for facial expressions? Research on emotional body language shows that emotions are tools for adaptive action, and that they allow us to predict interactions with real, imagined, and virtual others. These data prompt de Gelder to consider virtual bodies as well as physical ones, including avatars and robots. The wide-ranging implications of her study will appeal especially to scholars and students of cognitive neuroscience, but also to those working in such related fields as information and communication technology, computer science, animation, and robotics"--

"From international bestselling author Will Gompertz, Think Like an Artist is a guide to increasing creativity and productivity with help from some of the greatest artists throughout history. How do artists think? Where does their creativity originate? How can we, too, learn to be more creative? BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz seeks answers to these questions in his exuberant, intelligent, witty, and thought-provoking style. Think Like an Artist identifies 10 key lessons on creativity from artists that range from Caravaggio to Warhol, Da Vinci to Ai Weiwei, and profiles leading contemporary figures in the arts who are putting these skills to use today. After getting up close and personal with some of the world’s leading creative thinkers, Gompertz has discovered traits that are common to them all. He outlines basic practices and processes that allow your talents to flourish and enable you to embrace your inner Picasso -- no matter what you do for a living. With wisdom, inspiration, and advice from an author named one of the 50 most original thinkers in the world by Creativity magazine, Think Like an Artist is an illuminating view into the habits that make people successful. It's time to get inspired and think like an artist! Includes a full-color pull-out insert featuring works of art discussed."--provided by

The book of Abramelin : a new translation
Abraham ben Simeon, of Worms, active 15th century
Lake Worth, FL : Ibis Press, 2015
MAGIC, ALCHEMY & HERMETIC THOUGHT. This is a new and expanded second edition of THE BOOK OF ABRAMELIN, a modern classic of Magic since it was first published in English by Ibis Press in 2006. The new material includes copious footnotes and an extensive index. This is the first modern translation of this critical magical work since S.L. Macgregor Mathers's original translation over 100 years ago. Not only is the language updated, but Georg Dehn, the compiler and editor, has sourced his work from all extant manuscripts, whereas Mathers used just one. The result is a stunning new translation, which has already set the occult world abuzz. It includes voluminous important material left out of Mathers' work, including an entire Part 2 filled with magical recipes, important distinctions in the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel ritual and completes word grids that had been left half-completed by Mathers.
