Winner of the 2014 Living Now Book Award for Inspirational Memoir

Nightline anchor Dan Harris embarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable.

After having a nationally televised panic attack on Good Morning America, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure, involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had both propelled him through the ranks of a hyper-competitive business and also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.

We all have a voice in our head. It’s what has us losing our temper unnecessarily, checking our email compulsively, eating when we’re not hungry, and fixating on the past and the future at the expense of the present. Most of us would assume we’re stuck with this voice – that there’s nothing we can do to rein it in – but Harris stumbled upon an effective way to do just that. It’s a far cry from the miracle cures peddled by the self-help swamis he met; instead, it’s something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation. After learning about research that suggests meditation can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain, Harris took a deep dive into the underreported world of CEOs, scientists, and even marines who are now using it for increased calm, focus, and happiness.

10% Happier takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America’s spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.

DESCRIPTION:

A riddle rarely makes sense the first time you hear it. The connection between Dane, a bully, and Billy D, a guy with Down Syndrome, doesn’t even make sense the second time you hear it. But it’s a collection of riddles that solidify their unlikely friendship.

Dane doesn’t know who his dad is. Billy doesn’t know where his dad is. So when Billy asks for Dane’s help solving the riddles his dad left in an atlas, Dane can’t help but agree. The unmarked towns lead them closer to secrets of the past. But there’s one secret Billy isn’t sharing. It’s a secret Dane might have liked to know before he stole his mom’s car and her lottery winnings and set off on a road trip that will put him face to face with Billy’s dad.

The Joy of PHP: A Beginner's Guide to Programming Interactive Web Applications with PHP and mySQL by Alan Forbes

The Joy of PHP: A Beginner’s Guide to Programming Interactive Web Applications with PHP and mySQLby Alan Forbes

FREE

Available through October 04 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

How to program interactive web applications with PHP and mySQL– even if you’ve never programmed before

Have you ever wanted to design your own website or browser application but thought it would be too difficult or maybe just didn’t know where to start? Have you found the amount of information on the Internet either too daunting or not geared for your skill set or worse– just plain boring? Are you interested in learning to program PHP and have some fun along the way? If so, then The Joy of PHP by Alan Forbes is the book for you!!

PHP Beginners: Start Here

Alan starts with some basic HTML so the absolute beginner can catch up quickly and then goes step by step on how PHP works. You start with the easy stuff–like how to create and run simple PHP scripts that modify web pages– and then build on what you’ve learned through a series of cohesive (and fun) exercises that carry over from lesson to lesson.

As the chapters progress you begin to build a web site for a growing used car dealership business. This approach keeps the material fun and challenging– and gives what you’ve learned a context to be relevant. A car dealership needs a constantly changing web site because the inventory of cars is always changing. HTML is not the answer for this kind of web site– but PHP and mySQL are the answer

Throughout the book you will be working with the web site for the car dealership and adding features and modifying it as the needs of the business (and your knowledge) grow. This writing style reinforces the previous lessons and keeps you engaged in a “real” project — giving you both a sense of accomplishment and an opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to a realistic scenario. You are far more likely to retain what you’ve learned using this approach than just reading dry syntax documentation.

The author has an easy and fun style of writing that teaches you PHP in a simple, matter of fact manner while showing you the most common uses of the commands you need to get the job done. This keeps your learning pace quick and uncluttered. If you need it, he also points you to several resources where you can learn more about the other options a PHP function can offer and– even better–how to read and understand those resources.

If you want to learn the PHP language in an easy, enjoyable, well laid out manner and to learn why PHP and mySQL are so powerful and fun to use then buy this book!! Do not buy this book if you are looking for a comprehensive reference of boring PHP syntax.

This book does not attempt to cover everything about PHP. What it does do– and does well– is take you from being a beginner who isn’t even sure what PHP is to someone who knows the sheer joy that only programming dynamic sites can provide. You will become someone who can read, write, and modify PHP scripts and you will be able make your website come alive.

DESCRIPTION:

“I don’t have time for them.” “You only spend them on stuff you don’t need anyways.” “They don’t help me save that much money.”

What if Whitney Sparks were to tell you that all of these are myths when it comes to using coupons? Coupons have saved her family thousands of dollars for household products that she uses every day and it only takes as much time as she allows; which is one hour a week.

Whitney started using coupons as a homemaker when her husband was laid off from his job for over 7 months. She has continued this money saving process even while working full-time outside the home. Coupons can be utilized for any situation.

Plus coupons can help you become a better manager of your money. When Whitney was a home-maker she wasn’t able to bring in a lot of money but realized then that she could save them a lot of money.

Using coupons allowed her and her family to save money and pay down debt with the extra that they weren’t using. It feels pretty great being DEBT-FREE! Now her husband and she are both earning full-time salaries and she still spends around $100/week on food, toiletries, make-up, shaving products, etc. using coupons. Doing this allows them to have fun with their money and save for retirement instead of eating away our life savings.

In the book, “The Couponer’s Classroom” Whitney Sparks teaches you how to make coupons work around you and your family. Everything that she has written about in this book, she has done herself or heard about from others while teaching coupon classes. In other words, she is not trying to sell you on something that she read about or watched on television.

Whitney makes using coupons easy and fun. She may seem extreme to some, but she feels like she is just a normal girl looking to save her family money. Aren’t we all?

The strategies that Whitney teaches in this book have taken her years to master. The great part is that you get all of these strategies in one simple read.

So, pull up a desk and stay a while. “Good morning, students. My name is Mrs. Sparks. Welcome to The Couponer’s Classroom.”
