Fun is something you have to earn, right? You work hard, and then maybe once a year you get to enjoy yourself on a vacation. And after a lifetime of this you retire and finally do what you want. Dynamic speaker and consultant Dave Crenshaw calls this the culture of WISH: you slave away and hope it will be Worth It Someday, Hopefully. And it's all wrong.
Crenshaw shows that by putting fun first - carefully scheduling enjoyable, meaningful, and refreshing breaks throughout your day, week, month, and year - not only will you be happier, you'll be a lot more productive too. Fun has the power to turn your life into a WIN - what you do will feel like it's Worth It Now. Using real-world examples, thought-provoking exercises, and a healthy dose of wit, Crenshaw details a five-stage process that has helped thousands of people discover their personal "oases" - specific actions and activities that they find renewing and energizing - and make them a priority. Listeners will be delighted to find a book that lowers their stress, raises their results, and restores recess to their routine.

In his recovery from drugs and alcohol, Chris Grosso has stumbled, staggered, and started all over again. In an effort to understand why he relapses, and why many of us return to the myriad of other self-defeating behaviors despite our better judgment, he went to best-selling authors, spiritual teachers, psychologists, doctors, and more, and asked them why we tend to repeat mistakes in our lives, even when we know these actions will harm us and the ones we love.
In Dead Set on Living, Chris shares these intimate conversations and the practices that have taught him to be more loving, compassionate, and forgiving with himself as well as new meditation and healing techniques he learned through his journey.
Unabashedly honest and inspiring, Dead Set on Living is essential listening for anyone seeking a path towards triumph over adversity, understanding the human condition, and rebuilding relationships after promises have been broken.

An eye-opening account of the landmark research into the hidden chemicals that are endangering our health and keeping us fat
Being overweight is not just the result of too many cheeseburgers or not enough exercise. According to leading-edge science, there are silent saboteurs in our daily lives that contribute greatly to our obesity epidemic: obesogens. These weight-inducing offenders, most of which are chemicals, disrupt our hormonal systems, alter how we create and store fat, and change how we respond to dietary choices. Because they are largely unregulated, obesogens lurk all around us - in food, furniture, plastic products such as water bottles and food storage containers, and other surprising exposure points. Even worse: research has shown that the effects of some obesogens can be passed on to future generations by irreversibly interfering with the expression of our genes. The good news is we can protect ourselves by becoming more informed consumers.
In The Obesogen Effect, Dr. Bruce Blumberg describes how obesogens work, reveals where they are found, and offers a practical three-step solution for reducing exposures. He explains why one size does not fit all in a weight loss program, what hides in our household goods, and how we should shop for items we buy every day - from vegetables and meats to canned soup as well as household cleaners, air fresheners, and personal care products. The Obesogen Effect is an urgent call to action to protect your body, clean up your life, and set a straight course for better health.
