Download A COMPLAINT-FREE WORLD How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life You Always Wanted By Will Bowen The weather. The traffic. Your aching back. There’s plenty to complain about in life. And complain we do, to ourselves and just about anyone who will listen. But what if we didn’t? Will Bowen suggests we wean ourselves off complaining because “what you say becomes your reality.” After examining the reasons we do it—at tention- getting, responsibility-dodging, power- tripping—Bowen offers ideas to help us break the habit. Here are t wo: designate a zone, like your office, as complaint-free. Try some silence instead. THE ZERO-WASTE LIFESTYLE Live Well by Throwing Away Less By Amy Korst Before the packaging revolution, garbage was an alien concept. People didn’t waste much. Now we’re drowning in detritus. Buy a takeout meal and you’re left holding a container that will endure for hundreds of years. Amy Korst is doing her part to help by providing this Joy of Cooking-type guide for how to stop spewing trash. It takes you room by room through your living and working spaces with easy-to-follow tips for cut ting back. The A-Z Guide to Recy- cling (Just About) Anything, in the back of the book, will help you make garbage an alien—and bad—idea again. BLINDSPOT Hidden Biases of Good People By Mahzarin R. Banaji and Anthony G. Greenwald Uncovering “ingrained habits of thought” is what the authors of Blindspot aim for. These t wo leading social psychologists examine what they call “mindbugs”: common habits of thought that “lead to errors in how we perceive, remember, reason, and make decisions.” Mindbugs can skew eyewitness accounts of crimes, interfere with everyday decision-making, and feed social prejudice. This book offers a useful look at how our socialized brains ac tually work—and how we can recognize and free ourselves from habits we didn’t even know we had. ● IMAGINE CHILDHOOD Exploring the World through Nature, Imagination, and Play By Sarah Olmsted Have you and your child gone exploring together lately? Imagine Childhood invites you to, by way of creative projects for you and your children to do together. It offers 25 nature-inspired activities—some with step-by-step instructions, and each accompanied by whimsical stories and photographs. Most require an adult’s par- ticipation, and that’s the point, says author Sarah Olmsted. “They’re not about what is produced in the end. They’re about the process of getting there. They’re about the conversations that happen while making things together.” The Short List BOUNCING BACK Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being By Linda Graham THE LAST BEST CURE My Quest to Awaken the Healing Parts of My Brain and Get Back My Body, My Joy, and My Life By Donna Jackson Nakazawa LEADERSHIP CONVERSATIONS Challenging High- Potential Managers to Become Great Leaders By Alan S.
