From George Minot, author of The Blue Bowl (´´Inexpressibly moving. It´s thrilling to find a writer this good.´´ - Amy Hempel), a new novel, moving, sensual, athletic (and aesthetic), set in the downtown New York yoga world at the turn of the millennium, a love story about a once-trendy artist who´s lost his bearings and finds his life reinvigorated by his new yoga practice - and a certain barefooted yoga teacher. To Billy, who used to show in the hot new galleries in the East Village of the 80s and early 90s, his downhill progression is what he calls ´´the vague decline.´´ But life feels exquisitely transformed by his new daily yoga practice (´´a little hothouse sanctuary in the big city´´) clearing the way; creating insight, flexibility, clarity; breathing; sweating; variations of vulnerability, arched open emotion. Billy is also enraptured by his new yoga crush. Soon he and Amanda, a yoga teacher (her ´´poses are pure,´´ ´´flexible and solid,´´ ´´gliding easily in her element´´), are in love and are caught up in the newness and wonder of their happiness. They are inseparable - their practice is transformative; they can´t tell where one ends and the other begins, and they are transported into a dream world of their own…Until a devastating diagnosis blindsides Amanda, and she begins to recede from Billy´s life. As he feels the thousand threads between them splitting apart and is helpless to stop it, he is forced to turn inward to his art and to his yoga practice to reconcile, with grace and love, his loss, his heart, and mend the abiding wound that he comes to realize was there long before Amanda seemingly completed his soul. Moving, inspiring, transporting, a romantic novel of yoga, inner mystery, and surrender. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Delgado.

What Is Reputation Management: Why It Is Import...

With the rise of the Internet, email, social media, and review sites like Yelp, Yellow Pages, Google +, and others, your local business can now be showcased globally. Your customers now have the ability to post their first impressions of your business on their Facebook or Twitter pages and also complete a full review (good or bad) on review sites such as Google Local, Yelp, Yahoo, Yellow Pages, City Search, Urban Spoon, and about 100 other sites. These online customer reviews can leave a lasting impression on future customers. The latest Nielsen Report shows that over 70% of consumers trust online reviews more than editorial content (such as an article on CNN or in the local news), more than your Web site, and even more than the local newspaper. So what can you to do when others are posting online reviews about your local business? Well, for starters, you can´t just sit there and not engage with your customers. In the current environment, just standing by is as good an answer as a ´´No Comment´´. This won´t ensure any long-term success for your business. You need to learn about the current thoughts and trends in reputation marketing, how you can use this new information to improve your local business and how to respond when those negative reviews pop up for one reason or another. And the negative reviews will appear - it is inevitable that there will be that one unhappy customer. The good news is that you don´t have to let their unhappiness bring your business´s reputation down. When your business´ reputation goes downhill, your sales will begin to decrease as well. But with the help I provide in this book, you won´t have to worry about this happening to your local business because you will learn how to properly respond to the unhappy customers and properly engage your satisfied customers so that they can speak up and have their opinions heard. The local online landscape has changed forever. You need to be ready for it o... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Lofbomm.

The Progress Paradox: How Life Gets Better Whil...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In The Progress Paradox, Gregg Easterbrook draws upon three decades of wide-ranging research and thinking to make the persuasive assertion that almost all aspects of Western life have vastly improved in the past century; and yet today, most men and women feel less happy than in previous generations. Why this is so and what we should do about it is the subject of this book. Between contemporary emphasis on grievances and the fears engendered by 9/11, today it is common to hear it said that life has started downhill, or that our parents had it better. But objectively, almost everyone in today´s United States or European Union lives better than his or her parents did. Still, studies show that the percentage of the population that is happy has not increased in fifty years, while depression and stress have become ever more prevalent. The Progress Paradox explores why ever-higher living standards don´t seem to make us any happier. Detailing the emerging science of ´´positive psychology,´´ which seeks to understand what causes a person´s sense of well-being, Easterbrook offers an alternative to our culture of crisis and complaint. He makes a compelling case that optimism, gratitude and acts of forgiveness not only make modern life more fulfilling but are actually in our self-interest. Seemingly insoluble problems of the past, such as crime in New York City and smog in Los Angeles, have proved more tractable than they were thought to be. Likewise, today´s ´´impossible´´ problems, such as global warming and Islamic terrorism, can be tackled, too. Like The Tipping Point, this book offers an affirming and constructive way of seeing the world anew. The Progress Paradox will change the way you think about your place in the world, and about our collective ability to make it better. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Marosz.
