Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know-like that physical activity boosts your brain power.How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget-and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?In Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule-what scientists know for sure about how our brains work-and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives.
Today’s busier, faster society is waging an undeclared war on childhood. With too much stuff, too many choices, and too little time, children can become anxious, have trouble with friends and school, or even be diagnosed with behavioral problems. Now internationally renowned family consultant Kim John Payne helps parents reclaim for their children the space and freedom that all kids need for their attention to deepen and their individuality to flourish. Simplicity Parenting offers inspiration, ideas, and a blueprint for change: • Streamline your home environment. Reduce the amount of toys, books, and clutter—as well as the lights, sounds, and general sensory overload. • Establish rhythms and rituals. Discover ways to ease daily tensions, create battle-free mealtimes and bedtimes, and tell if your child is overwhelmed. • Schedule a break in the schedule. Establish intervals of calm and connection in your child’s daily torrent of constant doing. • Scale back on media and parental involvement. Manage your children’s “screen time” to limit the endless deluge of information and stimulation. A manifesto for protecting the grace of childhood, Simplicity Parenting is an eloquent guide to bringing new rhythms to bear on the lifelong art of raising children.

Conversations with God
His personal relationships had failed. His career tracks had dead-ended. Now his health was threatened. Neale Donald Walsch, at age 48, was financially destitute and in a state of chronic depression. From this low place of frustration and desperation, Neale vented his ire by writing an angry letter to God on a yellow legal pad. At the end of an almost hysterical writing frenzy, near physical and emotional collapse, he was unable to release the pen from his hand. He heard a voice over his right shoulder, a real voice that frightened him. Then the voice moved inside Neale's voice head, and he wrote what the voice said. "Neale, do you really want answers to all these questions, or are you just venting?" What had begun as a private process in February 1992 thus became a dialog with an infinite source, which Neale later identified as a conversation with God. Conversations with God, the movie, is the dramatic story of Neale Donald Walsh's passage from being poor and homeless to becoming the messenger of spiritual truths that have impacted people worldwide. Book One of theConversations with Godseries stayed on theNew York TimesBestseller list for more than two and a half years and has been translated into 36 languages, with more than 7 million copies sold. A decade after the appearance of Book One,Conversations with God, the movie, began shooting November 7, 2005, in Ashland, Oregon, where the actual events of Neale's transformation occurred. Finally, the full back story of Neale's struggle is revealed in a feature-length film produced and directed by Stephen Simon, who is responsible for such spiritual cinema classics asSomewhere in TimeandWhat Dreams May Comeand for the launch of of the modern-day spiritual cinema movement. Conversations with God: The Making of the Movieprovides a unique and exclusive insight into the process and personalities involved in the spiritually relevant film genre that has become known as spiritual cinema. The narrative text connects the film's storyline to the remarkable synchronistic events that linked all cast and crewmembers. From pre-production to the location sets, in more than 200 full-color production stills, production design works of art, and frames from the movie itself, here is the heart of filmmakers at work. And since Neale Donald Walsch lived these dramatic movie events, who better to comment on them from the personal depth of his experience? Throughout the book, Neale adds a commentary dimension unprecedented in moviemaking literature. All this combines to makeConversations with God: The Making of the Moviea touchstone document in the evolution of conscious moviemaking now recognized as spiritual cinema.
