Dr. John Bargh, the world's leading expert on the unconscious mind, presents a groundbreaking book, 20 years in the making, that gives us an entirely new understanding of the hidden mental processes that secretly govern every aspect of our behavior.
For more than three decades, Dr. John Bargh has been responsible for the revolutionary research into the unconscious mind, research that informed best sellers like Blink and Thinking Fast and Slow. Now, in what Dr. John Gottman said "will be the most important and exciting book in psychology that has been written in the past 20 years", Dr. Bargh takes us on an entertaining and enlightening tour of the forces that affect everyday behavior while transforming our understanding of ourselves in profound ways.
Telling personal anecdotes with infectious enthusiasm and disclosing startling and delightful discoveries, Dr. Bargh takes the listener into his labs at New York University and Yale where he and his colleagues have discovered how the unconscious guides our behavior, goals, and motivations in areas like race relations, parenting, business, consumer behavior, and addiction. He reveals what science now knows about the pervasive influence of the unconscious mind in who we choose to date or vote for, what we buy, where we live, how we perform on tests and in job interviews, and much more. Because the unconscious works in ways we are completely unaware of, Before You Know It is full of surprising and entertaining revelations as well as tricks to help you remember to-do items, shop smarter, and sleep better.
Destined to be a best seller, Before You Know It is an intimate introduction to a fabulous world only recently discovered, the world that exists below the surface of your awareness and yet is the key to knowing yourself and unlocking new ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving.

With the lucid verve and solid scientific grounding of an Oliver Sacks or Malcolm Gladwell, Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler guides listeners on a fascinating tour of the bedrock of our existence - the way our senses perceive everything and everyone in the world around us.
Why does one person see Jesus in a shower curtain, get a "bad feeling" about someone they've just met, or hear a conversation so differently than the other person? Boxer Wachler describes some of the mysterious medical conditions that cause non-psychiatric hallucinations and neurological mix-ups, then focuses on how we all receive and interpret the messages of our senses. Practical as well as provocative, Perceptual Intelligence also offers listeners ways to improve their PI, "reality check" their perceptions, and make desired changes in their lives.

Forget everything you know about stress
If you're like most people, you probably think stress is an inevitable part of life. The truth is: It's not. In a groundbreaking 30-year study, Dr. Derek Roger has discovered that everything we think we know about stress - and how we should "manage" it - is just plain wrong.
Stress is a choice
It is not a natural response to the pressures of work. It's a choice you make, consciously or not, to worry and fret and agonize over the work you need to do - instead of just doing it.
Work doesn't have to be stressful for you to be successful
This book offers a radically different approach to stress. It's about being resilient. Flexible. Mentally awake and in the moment. It's about changing your mind-set to keep things in perspective instead of adding fuel to the fire with negative thoughts. The techniques you'll find in this book are powerful, practical, and proven to work - without stress.
A revolutionary approach to preventing stress that is evidence based, life changing, and scientifically proven to work
Why do some people get stressed while others stay calm, cool, and collected under pressure? According to renowned stress researcher Dr. Derek Roger, the answer lies in resilience - your ability to cope with challenges and thrive under adversity rather than ruminating and obsessing over them. In lab-controlled studies, he discovered that the key to "managing" stress is to stop it before it starts. To be resilient, flexible, and ready for anything.
The culmination of three decades of research, this book presents a practical and proven program of simple step-by-step techniques that you can use to:
- Adjust your mind-set and work more efficiently
- Control your response to any kind of pressure
- Detach and let go of negative thoughts
- Put things in perspective and focus on what matters
- Develop a stress-free leadership style
- Build more resilient teams and organizations
- Give constructive feedback and communicate effectively
- Differentiate between caring (useful) and worrying (useless)
- Open your mind to new approaches and ideas
- Reach higher levels of success - without all the stress
Warning: This is not another stress management book. It's not about finding time to relax. It's about cultivating resilience - the ability to negotiate the rapids of life without being swept away. It's about reprogramming your emotional responses to high-pressure situations and breaking the self-defeating habits that do nothing but increase your levels of stress. In this book you'll find case studies and day-to-day techniques to help you readjust your attitude from the moment you wake up. You are not genetically programmed to experience stress. You have a choice. You can make your success the hard way - or you can Work Without Stress.
