About this Item: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.

About this Item: Composed Life Press, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This award-winning (eLit Awards, Self Help Category) book, Slowing Down in a Speedstressed World fulfills two clear purposes: first, to gently convince harried readers that easing one s pace of life is not only necessary to health and happiness, it is also entirely possible. The rest of the book fulfills the second goal: to provide readers with the skills needed to slow down in our hurry-up culture. Filled with the wisdom of many interviewees and of its author (a psychotherapist), this informative, yet soothing, volume explores how the pressure of too much to do in too little time can cause living-on-the-run to become a habit. Luckily, all habits can be broken; this book offers readers the small, practical steps needed to do just that, as well as to take back control of their pace of life. Throughout, Slowing Down in a Speedstressed World lives up to the word kindly in its subtitle. The author repeatedly reminds her audience to be forgiving with themselves as they undertake the imperfect process of changing a habitually fast pace. Select chapters address the unique needs and challenges of workers and parents, as well as of retirees, who often over-commit. Each chapter ends with simple invitations to think about or practice a skill. Page by page, as slowly as readers need, they will learn to relate in new ways to their greatest barrier to change: the anxiety that inevitably arises as anyone attempts to slow down. Readers will find allies through the words of those who shared their experiences with the author. While slowing down can feel like a lonely enterprise in our pressurized world, those who read Slowing Down in a Speedstressed World will feel accompanied and supported as, step by step, they rebalance their pace of life.

About this Item: Composed Life Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 218 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.6in.A simple moment overhearing a woman lament her rush as the story of our lives set the author, a psychotherapist, on an 8-year journey of interviews, research, and writing, resulting in Slowing Down in a Speedstressed World: Practical Skills and Kindly Advice. Why, Ms. Place wondered, did so many people want or, even, yearn to slow down, but find it so hard to do Living on the run, she discovered, often becomes a habit; one fueled by anxiety about any one of three modern too much-too little dilemmas. Unlike many books on the topic, Slowing Down in a Speedstressed World offers many skills for working with anxiety, as well as encouraging readers to slow down in small steps and with great kindness to self. The book also recognizes that people without jobs or children can become just as speedstressed as working parents, and offers a wealth of helpful slowlutions for each group. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780615893037

The narrator Jenkins (a budding writer) shares a room w/ Templer (already a passionate womanizer) & the aristocratic & reckless Stringham, w/ Widmerpool (as hopelessly awkward as he is intensely ambitious) lurking on the periphery of their world. Amid the fever of the 1920s & the first chill of the 1930s, these four gain their initiations into sex, society, business, & art. In the background of the 2nd Movement (Summer), the rumblings of distant events in Germany & Spain presages the storm of World War II. In England, even as the whirl of marriages & adulteries, fashions & frivolities, personal triumphs & failures gathers speed, men & women find themselves on the brink of fateful choices. In the 3rd Movement we again meet Widmerpool, doggedly rising in rank; Jenkins shifted from one dismal army post to another; Stringham, heroically emerging from alcoholism; Templer, still on his eternal sexual quest. Here too, we are introduced to Pamela Flitton, one of the most beautiful & dangerous women in modern fiction. Wickedly barbed in its wit, uncanny in its seismographic recording of human emotions & social currents, this saga stands as an unsurpassed rendering of England's finest yet most costly hour. Set against a backdrop of politics, business, high society, & the counterculture in England & Europe, the climatic 4th Movement describes a word of ambition, intrigue, & dissolution, & sounds an unforgettable requiem for an age. England has won the war, but now the losses, physical & moral, must be counted. Pamela Widmerpool sets a snare for the young writer Trapnel, while her husband suffers private agony & public humiliation. * "A great chronicle, absolutely fascinating, the most important fiction since the war." - Kingsley Amis * "What makes Powell's work so exciting is the ability to create truth, emotional, evocative, revealing . . . so that reading Powell is like reading someone else's life, inextricably entangled with one's own." - Elizabeth Janeway * "Dry, cool, humorous, elaborately & accurately constructed & quintessentially English. It is more realistic that "A La Recherche du Temps Perdu", to which it is often compared, and much funnier." - Evelyn Waugh * Anthony Powell (1905-2000) is the author of numerous works. * MNEMOSYNE individually wraps & custom packages the four volumes of this handsome set for FREE shipment via USPS PRIORITY MAIL within the U.S.A. & for a flat fee of $64.00 via USPS INTERNATIONAL PRIOIRTY AIRMAIL to all international destinations.
