  • Pdf File: negotiation-madness.pdf

Book Short Summary:

There have been many books written about negotiation techniques, but all of these have been turned on their head by the ability of Donald Trump to make it to the White House. Ignoring all precedents and defying even his own party, he has opened an era where neither tradition nor precedent remains the order of the day. Fake news has become the entertainment watchword in an era where a president can send out his own daily tweets to millions of followers and the world press, and no one is able to pre-empt his message or know how to respond. In what would be described negotiation madness, Trump incites confrontation into intransient situations: opening an American embassy in Jerusalem and provoking a North Korean leader by a silly name, which nevertheless still initiates first-time discussions between north and south. If he doesn’t get his wish through Congress, he pretends to give up, plays the man not the issue, going against what all the negotiation books tell you, then comes in again to get what he wants. At every turn the standards of negotiation need to be rewritten in what has become as much politics as entertainment, ego rather than substance, and this is what is targeted in Peter Nelson’s Negotiation Madness.

  • Pdf File: the-political-primer.pdf

Book Short Summary:

The kind of society you want to live in depends upon what you politically believe. Each political party has embraced a Worldview of how society should be structured and how people should interact. Each party is striving to create a world structured by their Worldview. The goal of politics is to place individuals in positions of control over society who will create or preserve that structure. That is the same goal as war - to place people in charge of society who will create a structure for society that will result in the establishment of the kind of society the victors want to live in. For some people how they live is worth fighting for. For many, how they live is worth dying for. Politics is war! You are the foot soldier. So what do you believe? The Political Primer will help you to determine what it is you politically believe and which Worldview you already embrace. You will soon realize politics is not about what other people think or what other people believe. Politics is about what you think and what you believe. Here are three of the facts that politicians and elected officials do not want you to know: 1. Politics is not complicated. 2. Only four basic political philosophies exist. 3. Politics is entirely about you! Fundamental political concepts introduced in Part One are used to develop four political philosophies. There are only four! Part Two uses both trivial and controversial issues to illustrate the application of the political concepts of Part One. Part Three will illustrate the power of the political concepts presented and will further clarify how politics is utilized to change the structure of society. The Epilog is both a commentary and a test. The test is not to determine whether you agree or disagree with the Authors commentary. The test is to determine for yourself whether you now understand why you agree or disagree. The Political Primer will have accomplished its goal if you know why. You will have become politically astute. There are four possible future worlds. Which one do you want to build?

Book Short Summary:

The goal of the book is to solve the three big problems plaguing our world: poverty, war, and environment deterioration from pollutions. The big three, besides making lives unbearable for billions, also have increasingly threatened to destroy us. Many, including the wisest and the most learned the human race has to offer, have tried and only to fail. The reason is simple: they just dont know what the reasons behind the problems are. This book, The Quest of an Unlikely Fixer, has through biophysics, clearly identified that the selfish nature of living organisms is the only reason. Selfishness always leads to hurtful behaviors; that is one of the reasons. The other reason is our godlike power. But we sadly dont have the right morality to guide this power. The solution to human selfishness and our godlike power is by a correct, new golden-rule-based morality, which allows us to come up with two moral principles to deal with selfishness. The book introduces moral selfishness as the tool to heal our sick planet. Following moral selfishness will promote intelligence and cooperation among the people of the world. It will bring a paradise to our planet. The book is full of original ideas.

In 2017: Michelle experienced a period in her life where she became mentally and physically depleted. Perfectionism, fear, guilt, and lack of self-love resulted in feeling disconnected from the joy of living. She suffered from fatigue and experienced many symptoms from an overtaxed nervous system. Nothing she tried healed the disconnection she felt, and Michelle realized she needed to look within. She knew she needed to go deep inside herself and learn self-love in order to heal and return to a place of balance. Michelle turned to three different daily practices to connect to her inner life and gain wisdom. About six months on her path of healing, her journaling transformed into writing inspirational material for the first time in her life. The words would come to in her moments of stillness. Her healing journey was revealing an inner voice that she was not aware she had. Her inspirational writings come from her Higher-Self, a place of unconditional love and acceptance. Her greatest desire is to share these writings with anyone who might resonate with them. She hopes her words inspire them along their inward journey to self-love, to their Higher-Self. It is here they can find

Book Short Summary:

To say F**k It feels good. To stop struggling and finally do what you wish . . . to ignore what everyone is telling you and just go your own way . . . feels really great. In this inspiring and humorous book, John C. Parkin suggests that saying F**k It is the perfect Western expression of the Eastern spiritual concept of letting go, giving up, and finding real freedom by realizing that things don’t matter so much (if at all). It’s a spiritual way that doesn’t require chanting, meditating, or wearing sandals. And it’s the very power of this modern-day profanity that makes it perfect for shaking us Westerners out of the stress and anxiety that dominate our daily lives. So, find out how to say F**k It to all your problems and concerns. Say F**k It to all the "shoulds" in your life, and finally do what you want —no matter what other people think!

Book Short Summary:

Here is the world's most famous master plan for seizing and holding power. Astonishing in its candor The Prince even today remains a disturbingly realistic and prophetic work on what it takes to be a prince . . . a king . . . a president. When, in 1512, Machiavelli was removed from his post in his beloved Florence, he resolved to set down a treatise on leadership that was practical, not idealistic. In The Prince he envisioned would be unencumbered by ordinary ethical and moral values; his prince would be man and beast, fox and lion. Today, this small sixteenth-century masterpiece has become essential reading for every student of government, and is the ultimate book on power politics.
