    The 7 Mindsets to live your untimate life : an unexpected blueprint for an extraordinary life

    Shickler, Scott.

    If everyone wants to live happy and successful lives, then why do so few achieve it? This simple question launched an exhaustive study into the commonalities of the world’s happiest and most successful people. We spent thousands of hours analyzing research and conducting our own. We tracked down and interviewed over 400 highly successful people. We combed through over 200 biographies and best-selling success stories. We left no stone unturned. So, what do the happiest and most successful people have in common? It turns out that it’s not related to geography, race, or gender. It’s not whether they grew up in loving homes or broken homes, nor whether their families were affluent or impoverished. It even has nothing to do with their education level, nor with their specific skill sets. In fact, what they all actually have in common is their mindsets… how they think! The 7 Mindsets provide the foundation for lives filled with extraordinary meaning, fulfillment and success on one’s own terms. And perhaps our most surprising discovery was that the vast majority of people are not only not living the 7 Mindsets, but are actually thinking and acting in direct opposition to them. The findings are revolutionary and have positively impacted countless lives. If you’re ready to live your ultimate life and help ensure that future generations do as well, then this is a must read.

    Creating cultures of thinking : the 8 forces we must master to truly transform our schools

    Ritchhart, Ron.

    "Discover why and how schools must become places where thinking is valued, visible, and actively promoted. As educators, parents, and citizens, we must settle for nothing less than environments that bring out the best in people, take learning to the next level, allow for great discoveries, and propel both the individual and the group forward into a lifetime of learning. This is something all teachers want and all students deserve. In Creating Cultures of Thinking: The 8 Forces We Must Master to Truly Transform Our Schools, Ron Ritchhart, author of Making Thinking Visible, explains how creating a culture of thinking is more important to learning than any particular curriculum and he outlines how any school or teacher can accomplish this by leveraging 8 cultural forces: expectations, language, time, modeling, opportunities, routines, interactions, and environment. With the techniques and rich classroom vignettes throughout this book, Ritchhart shows that creating a culture of thinking is not about just adhering to a particular set of practices or a general expectation that people should be involved in thinking. A culture of thinking produces the feelings, energy, and even joy that can propel learning forward and motivate us to do what at times can be hard and challenging mental work"-- Provided by publisher.

    The history of the medieval world : from the conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade

    Bauer, Susan Wise.

    From the schism between Rome and Constantinople to the rise of the T'ang Dynasty, from the birth of Muhammad to the crowning of Charlemagne, this erudite book tells the fascinating, often violent story of kings, generals, and the peoples they ruled. In her earlier work, The History of the Ancient World, Susan Wise Bauer wrote of the rise of kingship based on might. But in the years between the fourth and the twelfth centuries, rulers had to find new justification for their power, and they turned to divine truth or grace to justify political and military action--right thus replaces might as the engine of empire. Not just Christianity and Islam but the religions of the Persians and the Germans, and even Buddhism, are pressed into the service of the state. This phenomenon--stretching from the Americas all the way to Japan--changes religion, but it also changes the state.--From publisher description.
