Honored in 2006 as a "Year's Best Book for Preachers" by Preaching magazine. Perfect body. Perfect clothes. Perfect family. Perfect house. Perfect job. We strive for excellence in all areas of our lives. And there's nothing wrong with a healthy, mature pursuit of excellence. But what begins as healthy and normal can sometimes become neurotic and abnormal, leading to debilitating thoughts and behaviors: eating disorders anxiety and depression obsession and compulsions fear of failure relational dysfunction In Perfecting Ourselves to Death, Richard Winter explores the positive and negative effects of perfectionism on our lives. He looks at the seductive nature of perfectionism as it is reflected in today's media. He examines the price and perils of perfectionism. And he explores the roots of perfectionism, delving into what originally awakens this drive in us. After analyzing the negative feelings and defeatist behaviors that unhealthy perfectionism births, he provides practical strategies for how to change. "The important thing to see," writes Winter, "is that we are to strive to become better people, not just to be content with who we are or how we measure up to the standards of the culture around us." For Christians this means becoming more like Christ in every area of our lives. Here is the "perfect" book for those who struggle with perfectionism and for those pastors, counselors and friends who want to understand and help perfectionists.

Challenging conventional notions about the place of women in Muslim societies, the Bihishti Zewar (Heavenly Ornaments) gives life to the themes of religious and social reform that have too often been treated in the abstract. This instructional guidebook, used by the world's largest population of Muslims, is a vital source for those interested in modern Indian social and intellectual history, in Islamic reform, and in conceptions of gender and women's roles. The Bihishti Zewar was written in northern India in the early 1900s by a revered Muslim scholar and spiritual guide, Maulana Ashraf 'Ali Thanawi (1864-1943), to instruct Muslim girls and women in religious teachings, proper behavior, and prudent conduct of their everyday lives. In so doing, it sets out the core of a reformist version of Islam that has become increasingly prominent across Muslim societies during the past hundred years. Throughout the work, nothing is more striking than the extent to which the book takes women and men as essentially the same, in contrast to European works directed toward women at this time. Its rich descriptions of the everyday life of the relatively privileged classes in turn-of-the-century north India provide information on issues of personality formation as well as on family life, social relations, household management, and encounters with new institutions and inventions. Barbara Metcalf has carefully selected those sections of the Bihishti Zewar that best illustrate the themes of reformist thought about God, the person, society, and gender. She provides a substantial introduction to the text and to each section, as well as detailed annotations.

This book explains why contemporary liberal democracies are based on historical templates rather than revolutionary reforms; why the transition in Europe occurred during a relatively short period in the nineteenth century; why politically and economically powerful men and women voluntarily supported such reforms; how interests, ideas, and pre-existing institutions affected the reforms adopted; and why the countries that liberalized their political systems also produced the Industrial Revolution. The analysis is organized in three parts. The first part develops new rational choice models of (1) governance, (2) the balance of authority between parliaments and kings, (3) constitutional exchange, and (4) suffrage reform. The second part provides historical overviews and detailed constitutional histories of six important countries. The third part provides additional evidence in support of the theory, summarizes the results, contrasts the approach taken in this book with that of other scholars, and discusses methodological issues.

That man is a social being is almost axiomatic. Our interpersonal relation ships can be sources of the most rewarding or the most painful of human experiences. To a large measure our accomplishments in life depend on the facility with which we interact with others-our social skill. The acquisition of social skills is, of course, a natural part of the overall socialization process. However, in many instances it becomes necessary or desirable to develop further an individual's social facilities. Such skill development is the topic of this book. Two major goals were kept in mind in the writing of this book. The first was to provide a conceptual framework within which to view social skills. Such a framework allows one to understand why it is important to develop social skills, and the effects that such skill development should have. If the reader has a thorough understanding of the concept of social skills and their development, it becomes possible to make appropriate innovations and adaptions to his or her own circumstances. Without such a framework, social-skills training becomes little more than a collection of disjointed techniques. Also, without a conceptual understanding, pro cedural innovations are difficult to incorporate into training.

Micklyn Lightbourne is passionate, dedicated and committed to seeing individuals get to where God has predestined them to go in their lives, hence he was motivated to write this book to encourage and help to focus the minds and hearts of individuals reminding them that time is too precious to waste, and if they have not wasted time already hopefully they will never have a desire to waste time in the future. Where you are now, is where you and I should be, there are a lot of individuals who should be further along in their lives in terms of accomplishments. He is one of them and thats why he was moving at record speed to make the most of the time he has left and encourages us all to do the same; He call it Spirit Time Acceleration. In April of 2011 Mr. Lightbourne resigned from his job as the most prestigious Butler in The Bahamas at a five star world class resort. He was on top of his A game winning the highest honor in the hospitality industry but he was also at the crossroads of life and the decision was which direction should he take now? Should he ride the wave of fame or should he move on to the next chapter of his life? He and his wife made the decision to start their very own hospitality business. Since making such a decision God has been opening doors they never thought were even there to be opened. God has brought out some gifts in me I never knew existed but all this happened when I found out the truth, the truth of knowing I was placed here with and for a purpose said Mr. Lightbourne. We can begin pursuing our purpose right now and if we need guidance, by reading this book we will get there. The writing of this book could no longer be prolonged because its intension is to help others put their lives in prospective. We have wasted a lot of Gods time and its time to redeem it. This book was written with the intention to convict people to hold themselves accountable and responsible for their own actions and short comings. To show how we can better our lives through daily soft skills and life skills practices and become productive leaders in our families, the work place, schools, the community and at church. We would never have to blame others for our short comings again. Once any individual comes to the realization that they are accountable for their own actions they would begin to see life differently. We have allowed time to overtake us and it has left us so far behind that we are now battling to get our lives where it should have been years ago. This book is centered around, getting the individual back to the foundation of their lives, to see themselves in control of their own destiny while fighting off the biggest enemy trying to stop them which is themselves, we must get out of our own way. Our Heavenly Father wants us to take our rightful positions on the earth and be good contributors and stewards. If we cant be good stewards over ourselves how can we be stewards over this awesome Earth. In the book of (Romans 8:22-24) (NIV) it reads We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we are saved. We have this awesome responsibility to take dominion over the earth but first things first, these nine steps to perfect a better you is an awesome start, we have to bring back the stepping stones of how to set and accomplish goals for our lives, have the right attitudes, maintain standards, be professionals, make right decisions, get along with each other, communicate, resolve conflicts and make the most of our time. I challenge you to allow this book to help transform your life through the application process because knowledge without application is useless. Mastering these steps would bring out the qualities that were lying dormant ins

The Progressives—those reformers responsible for the shape of many American institutions, from the Federal Reserve Board to the New School for Social Research—have always presented a mystery. What prompted middle-class citizens to support fundamental change in American life? Eric Rauchway shows that like most of us, the reformers took their inspiration from their own lives—from the challenges of forming a family. Following the lives and careers of Charles and Mary Beard, Wesley Clair and Lucy Sprague Mitchell, and Willard and Dorothy Straight, the book moves from the plains of the Midwest to the plains of Manchuria, from the trade-union halls of industrial Britain to the editorial offices of the New Republic in Manhattan. Rauchway argues that parenting was a kind of elitism that fulfilled itself when it undid itself, and this vision of familial responsibility underlay Progressive approaches to foreign policy, economics, social policy, and education.

From our CD collections to iPods bursting with MP3s to the hallowed vinyl of DJs, recordings are the most common way we experience music. Perfecting Sound Forever tells the story of recorded music, introducing us to the innovators, musicians and producers who have affected the way we hear our favourite songs, from Thomas Edison to Phil Spector. Exploring the balance that recordings strike between the real and the represented, Greg Milner asks the questions which have divided sound recorders for the past century: should a recording document reality as faithfully as possible, or should it improve upon or somehow transcend the music it records? What does the perfect record sound like? The answers he uncovers will change the way we think about music.
