Author/Actors/Director/etc.: Rhonda Byrne
Publisher: Atria Books; Original edition (2012, Mar 6th).
ONE WORD CHANGES EVERYTHINGFor more than twenty centuries, words within a sacred text have mystified, confused, and been misunderstood by almost all who read them. Only a very few people through history have realized that the words are a riddle, and that once you solve the riddle—once you uncover the mystery—a new world will appear before your eyes. In The Magic, Rhonda Byrne reveals this life-changing knowledge to the world. Then, on an incredible 28-day journey, she teaches you how to apply this knowledge in your everyday life. No matter who you are, no matter where you are, no matter what your current circumstances, The Magic is going to change your entire life! . moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
Author/Actors/Director/etc.: Pamela Hale
Publisher: Through A Different Lens (2012, Mar 1st).
Flying Lessons is an inspirational manual for leading, living, and loving with passion and joy. It is a seven-step journey that helps anyone break free of the "gravity" if old limits and recognize one's power to soar-without even leaving the ground. Pamela uses seven stories from her own private pilot lessons to draw the metaphor between flying and life. A multilayered creative work, Flying Lessons is augmented by Pam's stunning aerial photos, which enhance the ancient and classic metaphor of flight. Each lesson corresponds with a chakra, a yoga pose, and an archetype, so the manual works as a course for readers on all levels of body, mind, and spirit. From the "dipstick" that helps flyers manage their energy, to the story of how the flying lessons helped Pam in her cancer journey, Flying Lessons is a practical and entertaining journey into authentic power, freedom, and fulfillment. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability

Publisher: Perigee Trade (2012, Feb 7th).
Do you ride the escalator-or take the stairs? No matter how you define success, it always requires one thing: self-discipline. But as popular speaker and strategist Rory Vaden explains, we live in an "escalator world"-one that's filled with shortcuts, quick fixes, and distractions that make it all too easy to slide into procrastination, compromise, and mediocrity. What seems like an easier path is really much harder in the end-and, most important, it won't take you where you want to go.How do successful people stay focused and achieve results? This lively and insightful guide presents a simple program for taking the stairs-that is, for overcoming the temptations of quick fixes and procrastination, conquering creative avoidance, and transcending personal setbacks in order to tackle the work that leads to real success. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
Author/Actors/Director/etc.: Nancy Sleeth
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (2012, Apr 1st).
Have you ever stopped to think, Maybe the Amish are on to something? Look around. We tweet while we drive, we talk while we text, and we surf the Internet until we fall asleep. We are essentially plugged in and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Rather than mastering technology, we have allowed technology to master us. We are an exhausted nation. No one has enough time, everyone feels stressed out, and our kids spend more hours staring at a screen each week than they do playing outside. It’s time to simplify our lives, make faith and family the focal point, and recapture the lost art of simple living. Building on the basic principles of Amish life, Nancy Sleeth shows readers how making conscious choices to limit (and in some cases eliminate) technology’s hold on our lives and getting back to basics can help us lead calmer, more focused, less harried lives that result in stronger, deeper relationships with our families, friends, and God. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
