On its first publication in the nineties, Dennis Friedman's 'Inheritance' caused a furore as he traced the (many) problems of the Royal family as it was then back to Queen Victoria's nursery, unveiling a host of psychodramas played out against a privileged background of English palaces and Scottish castles.

Nobody likes criticism. Handled poorly, it too often stings and breeds resentment - and most of us try to avoid it at all costs. But criticism - crafted carefully and communicated skillfully - promotes trust and respect, motivates individuals, and serves as a catalyst for change. It has the ability to turbocharge workplaces and careers. If that sounds farfetched, it's because few understand how to properly give and receive the kind of critical feedback that brings positive results. The Truth Doesn't Have to Hurt rejuvenates this powerful but neglected art form. Executives, managers, team leaders - anyone who needs to temper praise with a dose of reality - will learn to: deliver the truth and have it taken as helpful; create an atmosphere of acceptance; avoid mistakes that sabotage an exchange; and control how they receive criticism so they benefit - even if it's badly presented. Ignoring problems or always saying nice things will only maintain the status quo. This research-backed book delivers proven techniques and tools for motivating people and triggering improvement - swiftly and painlessly.

We love to share good news with the world. We tweet about a great new restaurant, we share pictures of our newborn child and we celebrate about receiving that sought-after promotion. We are evangelists for many great things. So why don't we do the same with Jesus? Simply put, Jesus is awkward for most of us. He's like that uncle who is really funny inside the family circle, but truthfully you would rather not take him anywhere. You know Jesus is great news. He is changing your life, he is giving you purpose and he has saved your soul. So how can you move out of your comfort zone and beyond the awkwardness to share the life-transforming power of God with others? Apostolic evangelist Beau Crosetto has spent years working with college students and churchgoers to help them break through to people in their everyday lives. Here, he moves you not only beyond the awkward feelings but through them so you can confidently take hold of evangelistic opportunities you encounter everywhere you go. In this practical, personal guide, Crosetto takes into account reasons we are not sharing our faith--the negative image of slick or pushy evangelists, the fear of not knowing enough or the dread of saying the wrong thing. He also reveals a dangerous lack of vocational empowerment in most churches today, reminding us that Ephesians 4 calls us to five roles: apostle, prophet, evangelist, shepherd and teacher. Why do we seem to be empowering only the pastoring roles of shepherd and teacher? If we are serious about the Great Commission, we must be serious about activating all five. People eager to hear the good news about Jesus are waiting for you, desperate for answers and guidance. If you grab hold of that reality and learn to listen to the nudgings of the Holy Spirit, you will be prepared to push past the awkwardness and step into the God moments waiting for you.
In "The Righteous Mind", psychologist Jonathan Haidt answers some of the most compelling questions about human relationships: Why can it sometimes feel as though half the population is living in a different moral universe? Why do ideas such as 'fairness' and 'freedom' mean such different things to different people? Why is it so hard to see things from another viewpoint? Why do we come to blows over politics and religion? Jonathan Haidt reveals that we often find it hard to get along because our minds are hardwired to be moralistic, judgemental and self-righteous. He explores how morality evolved to enable us to form communities, and how moral values are not just about justice and equality - for some people authority, sanctity or loyalty matter more. Morality binds and blinds, but, using his own research, Haidt proves it is possible to liberate ourselves from the disputes that divide good people. "A landmark contribution to humanity's understanding of itself". ("The New York Times"). "A truly seminal book". (David Goodhart, "Prospect"). "A tour de force - brave, brilliant, and eloquent. It will challenge the way you think about liberals and conservatives, atheism and religion, good and evil". (Paul Bloom, author of "How Pleasure Works"). "Compelling ...a fluid combination of erudition and entertainment". (Ian Birrell, "Observer"). "Lucid and thought-provoking ...deserves to be widely read". (Jenni Russell, "Sunday Times"). Jonathan Haidt is a social and cultural psychologist. He has been on the faculty of the University of Virginia since 1995 and is currently a visiting professor of business ethics at New York University's Stern School of Business. He is the co-editor of "Flourishing: Positive Psychology" and the "Life Well Lived", and is the author of "The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom".

You are a mind reader, born with an extraordinary ability to
understand what others think, feel, believe, want, and know. It's a
sixth sense you use every day, in every personal and professional
relationship you have. At its best, this ability allows you to
achieve the most important goal in almost any life: connecting,
deeply and intimately and honestly, to other human beings. At its
worst, it is a source of misunderstanding and unnecessary conflict,
leading to damaged relationships and broken dreams.
"I know my own mind.
People base thousands of choices across a lifetime on the views they hold of their skill and moral character, yet a growing body of research in psychology shows that such self-views are often misguided or misinformed. Anyone who has dealt with others in the classroom, in the workplace, in the medical office, or on the therapist's couch has probably experienced people whose opinions of themselves depart from the objectively possible. This book outlines some of the common errors that people make when they evaluate themselves. It also describes the many psychological barriers - some that people build by their own hand - that prevent individuals from achieving self-insight about their ability and character. The first section of the book focuses on mistaken views of competence, and explores why people often remain blissfully unaware of their incompetence and personality flaws. The second section focuses on faulty views of character, and explores why people tend to perceive they are more unique and special than they really are, why people tend to possess inflated opinions of their moral fiber that are not matched by their deeds, and why people fail to anticipate the impact that emotions have on their choices and actions. The book will be of great interest to students and researchers in social, personality, and cognitive psychology, but, through the accessibility of its writing style, it will also appeal to those outside of academic psychology with an interest in the psychological processes that lead to our self-insight.

Since the first edition of The Psychology of Risk there have been enormous macro-economic and socio-political changes globally - the chaos in the world banking system and the financial crisis and recessions that it presaged; the Arab Spring and the revolutionary shifts in power in the Middle East with rippled consequences around the world; the development of ever-more sophisticated cyber-terrorism that can strike the private individual or the nation state with equal ease. Amidst these changes in the face of hazard, do the psychological models built to explain human reactions to risk still apply? Has the research over the last few years resulted in an improvement in our understanding of how people perceive and act in relation to risk? In this second edition Professor Dame Breakwell uses illustrations and current examples to address these questions and provide a totally up-to-the minute review of what is known about the psychology of risk.
