Reimagining Women’s Cancers and Men’s Cancers

The Celebrity Diagnosis Guide to Personalized Treatment and Preventionen

This new series breaks the barriers by educating readers through clear and concise information and celebrity stories.

From People magazine, with a readership of 43 million, to Internet sites like JustJared.com with over 80 million monthly views, celebrity information not only sells, it educates people about important issues––including cancer. Information is empowering and reading about a famous person coping with cancer can not only be inspiring, it can save a life. That’s what Reimagining Cancer exemplifies through each book in the series through a concise, easy-to-read style and format.

Woven throughout Reimagining Women’s Cancers are stories, both medical and anecdotal, from women such as Angelina Jolie, Joan Lunden, Melissa Etheridge, Christina Applegate, and Suzanne Somers. Reimagining Men’s Cancers includes stories from men such as Joe Torre, Robert De Niro, Sir Ian McKellen, and Scott Hamilton. Education is the key, and by using celebrity stories, this new series can attract countless readers who might otherwise not pay attention to an epidemic that is likely to affect them or a loved one.

The Perfection Deception

Why Striving to Be Perfect Is Sabotaging Your Relationships, Making You Sick, and Holding Your Happiness Hostage

JANE BLUESTEIN, PhD.

Most people mistakenly confuse perfectionism with a healthy striving for excellence—but there is a big difference. One can lead to great achievement (or at least great learning) and the other is a psychological wound, the voice of the inner critic that screams ‘failure,’ ‘loser,’ or ‘fraud,’ regardless of the authenticity of our efforts, progress, or success.

For those who are bound by the impossible demands of perfectionism and those who feel bound by someone else’s perfectionistic standards, Dr. Bluestein emphatically shows that perfectionism is not a good thing, and it’s not remotely the same as doing your best. Through personal interviews and the latest research, she explores how our culture fuels the dysfunction, how perfectionism develops. Further, she provides practical strategies for moving toward authenticity and wholeness to live with confidence, self-fulfillment, and happiness.

Miracles We Have Seen

America’s Leading Physicians Share Stories They Can’t Forget

HARLEY ROTBART, MD.

This is a remarkable collection of miracles—medical events witnessed by leading physicians for which there is no reasonable medical explanation, or, if there is, the explanation itself is extraordinary. Readers will find dramatic essays that detail spectacular serendipities, impossible cures, breathtaking resuscitations, extraordinary awakenings, and recovery from unimaginable disasters. All these stories truly illustrate the difference between “curing” and “healing.”

While some cases are emotionally and physically spectacular, others involve a powerful transformation of everyone involved. Even the worst tragedies leave a positive impact for the triumphs of both our hearts and our minds.

Connecting with Coincidence

The New Science for Using Synchronicity and Serendipity in Your Life

BERNARD D. BEITMAN, MD.

We’ve all experienced or heard of surprising events and unex- plainable coincidences—money that seems to come from nowhere, a spontaneous idea that turns into a life-changing solution, meeting our soulmate on a flight we weren’t sup- posed to take, or families being reunited by “accident” after years of separation. Often these coincidences are explained as being controlled by a higher power or pure chance. But for the first time since Carl Jung’s work, comes bold new research that explains scientifically how we can identify, understand, and perhaps even control the frequency of coincidences in our everyday lives.

Soar Above

How to Use the Most Profound Part of Your Brain Under Any Kind of Stress

STEVEN STOSNY, PhD.

Success in work, love, and life depends on developing habits that activate the powerful prefrontal cortex when we need it most. Unfortunately, under stress, the human brain tends to revert to emotional habits we forged in toddlerhood: blame, denial, avoidance, reacting to a jerk like a jerk, and turning our connections into cold shoulders—or worse.

Author Steven Stosny offers a ground-breaking formula for building new, pressure-resistant habits. Based on research in psychology, neurobiology, and anthropology, Stosny will show anyone how to switch to the adult brain automatically when things get tough and to soar above the impulse to make things worse.

The Practice

Simple Tools for Managing Stress, Finding Inner Peace, and Uncovering Happiness

BARB SCHMIDT

The mind has a way of interfering with personal happiness, often causing stress and doubt. Getting in touch with one’s inner source of peace and following its guidance over the mind’s often-unfounded concerns requires training and discipline. Knowing this truth intimately, Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life Founder Barb Schmidt developed a three-part spiritual discipline called The Practice. The Practice is a toolkit to be used throughout the day to guide people who are looking for confidence, less stress, and deeper meaning along life’s path. These tools are a compilation of the great Truths taught by authentic teachers and masters throughout the centuries from various religious and spiritual traditions.

In the first three chapters of The Practice, readers are guided through the daily routine: Waking Up, Living Present, and Letting Go. Beginning with a morning meditation, a thread of peace is followed over the course of the day through the repetition of a sacred mantra, practicing focused attention, reading for inspiration, and reflecting on the day. In the concluding chapter, readers are provided with an opportunity to deepen their experience of The Practice with engaging exercises.

Ten Commitments

Translating Good Intentions into Great Choices

DAVID SIMON, MD. | INTRODUCTION BY DEEPAK CHOPRA

In the spirit of both Eastern and Western traditions, David Simon, co-founder of The Chopra Center, shows how changing our mindset from commandments to personal commitments can help us make the life transformations we have always wanted. Simon encourages readers to embrace the power of commitment to create a life of greater peace, vitality, love and purpose by translating our desires into concrete actions that will make change happen.

There is a continuing hunger for Eastern philosophy and spirituality among Westerners, and finally one of the West’s top experts, who has been writing on, lecturing, teaching, and practicing Eastern thought for over three decades, has blended these principles with our core Western beliefs, giving us a new perspective on the basic way we live our lives.

10th Anniversary EditionA

JAMES MARTIN, SJ

Witty, wryly honest, and always original, My Life with the Saints is James Martin’s story of how his life has been shaped by some surprising friends - the saints of the Catholic Church. In his modern classic memoir, Martin introduces us to saints throughout history—from St. Peter to Dorothy Day, St. Francis of Assisi to Mother Teresa - and chronicles his lifelong friendships with them. Filled with fascinating tales, Martin’s funny, vibrant, and stirring book invites readers to discover how saints guide us throughout our earthly journeys and how they help each of us find holiness in our own lives.

All rights available

Featuring a new chapter from Martin, this tenth-anniversary edition of the best-selling memoir updates readers about his life over the past ten years. In that time, he has been a New York Times best-selling author, official chaplain of The Colbert Report, and a welcome presence in the media whenever there’s a breaking Catholic news story. But he has always remained recognizably himself.

John L. Allen, Jr., the acclaimed Catholic journalist, contributes a foreword that shows how Martin has become one of the wisest and most insightful voices of this era.

Always Discerning

An Ignatian Spirituality for the New Millennium

JOSEPH A. TETLOW, SJ

Pope Francis has explicitly and repeatedly stated that discernment is essential for anyone who is a follower of Jesus Christ. But what, exactly, is discernment? Why must we do it? When do we do it? How should we do it?

In Always Discerning, Joseph A. Tetlow, SJ, delves thoughtfully into these questions and shares how lay Christians can implement discernment into not only life’s big decisions but also into the everyday, more mundane choices we constantly find ourselves having to make. Guided by Scripture, Pope Francis’s own words, and Ignatian spirituality, Fr. Tetlow helps us see that the dynamic interrelationship of head, heart, and hands is crucial to the discernment process.

Ultimately, Always Discerning provides a powerful and highly practical way for the “people of God” to pray in the new millennium, while teaching us how to recognize God’s will in every area of our lives and respond to it in joy and love.

Where Angels Walk. 25th Anniversary Edition

True Stories of Heavenly Visitors

JOAN WESTER ANDERSON

We don’t hear much about angels nowadays. When we do, they have often been secularized or commercialized. Instead of ministering angels who reveal God’s love and mercy, we hear about “angel investors” or we gobble up foil-wrapped chocolate angels at Christmas. But Joan Wester Anderson trusts that angels still walk among us.

On mountain slopes, on desolate rural highways, in airplane cockpits—these are just a few of the many places where ordinary people have felt the very real presence and power of God’s angels at work in their lives. In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of her New York Times best-selling book Where Angels Walk, Joan Wester Anderson (the “Angel Lady”) offers dozens of reasons—stories, actually—for us to reconsider our rather limited view of angels. In addition to the original collection of angelic encounters, several new stories have been included.

Station to Station

An Ignatian Journey through the Stations of the Cross

GARY JANSEN

Christians have asked, «How should I respond to suffering?» And the answer to that question, believes Gary Jansen, can be found by looking closely at the Passion of Jesus.

In Station to Station, Jansen uses the scriptural Way of the Cross to focus our minds and hearts on Jesus’ anguish and death. Walking through each station, we see the unique ways in which Jesus responded to suffering, and we are challenged to react similarly in our own struggles. Furthermore, through various Ignatian exercises, Jansen encourages us to imaginatively pray our way through the stations and to gradually respond more as Jesus would when we are weighed down by life’s burdens.

This book reveals the human nature of Jesus in suffering, and shows readers how to find hope, and how to change their perspective in life to go deeper in their relationship with God.

I don’t have time to pray. I don’t know how to pray. I don’t know what to pray for. Perhaps you identify with one or all of these statements; most people do. But with Gary Jansen’s The 15-Minute Prayer Solution, anyone can learn to turn those “I don’t” statements into “I do” declarations— and be transformed in the process.

Drawing on spiritual practices from the Christian tradition throughout the centuries, Jansen offers numerous and wide- ranging prayer exercises that can be completed in less than fifteen minutes. Deeply personal stories, thought provoking modern-day parables, and even humorous anecdotes bring spiritual ideas down to earth, revealing the practical side of prayer.

The Joy of Discipleship

H

POPE FRANCIS

In The Joy of Discipleship, Pope Francis reminds us that joy should be one of the defining characteristics of any person who has truly encountered Jesus. This skillfully curated collection of homilies, speeches, and other documents from Pope Francis, compiled and edited by James P. Campbell, offers a fresh perspective on why Christian disciples should be so joyful in the first place and how that joy might manifest itself in our individual daily lives. Covering a broad range of themes—Christ’s Resurrection, mercy, wealth and poverty, the Christian family, and more—The Joy of Discipleship moves us to meditate on Christ and then inspires us to move out from our own four walls, jubilantly proclaiming God’s transforming love in word and deed.

For anyone who wants what Pope Francis has—an active, abiding, authentic love for Jesus Christ, for the Church, and for the people of this world—The Joy of Discipleship will point the way.

Loyola Press | Recent Releases Ref lections from Pope Francis on Walking with Christ Foreword by

POPE FRANCIS is the first Jesuit Pope, the first pope from the Americas, and his papacy is defined by his emphasis on mercy, service, and humility.

Experiencing the Goodness of God with Our Five Senses

GINNY KUBITZ MOYER

Most Catholics are quite comfortable with the idea of encountering God with hearts and minds. Using the heart or brain to “sense” God’s presence doesn’t feel like a stretch. But the notion of finding God with our five senses—sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste—could seem strange indeed. In fact, it might even seem worldly or downright wrong.

In Taste and See, Ginny Kubitz Moyer beautifully counters this common misunderstanding. Using personal stories, anecdotes, and Scripture, she demonstrates how the five senses are a powerful, biblically based mean for us to encounter God, not only as we practice our faith but also as we participate in the “messy splendor” of daily life.

Each sense is allotted five chapters, each of which highlights a different experience of that sense. Every chapter concludes with Ignatian Examen-inspired prayer steps that encourage us to recognize and reflect upon God’s presence and goodness in the physical world.

Stripped

At the Intersection of Cancer, Culture, and Christ

HEATHER KING

Cancer is a life-altering event of seismic proportions that forever impacts people’s lives, and pushes them to reorder priorities, reassess values, and perhaps rethink their faith. A diagnosed tumor forced Heather King to live at the crossroads of uncertainty, belief, fear, and modern medicine. Only her faith in Christ, the Great Physician, helped her sort through the crippling uncertainty and choose her best way forward. Stripped chronicles King’s decision to carefully examine all the medical evidence available and to choose to bring God into her decision making, even if that meant going against established medical advice.

The story of Stripped demonstrates how King’s medical and spiritual journey led her to a place of freedom in Christ, where she could make an informed and faith-filled decision about her course of treatment and ultimately, accept her vulnerability. King learned, as we all must, that healing means so much more than simply “getting well.”

Saint Peter

Flawed, Forgiven, and Faithful

STEPHEN J. BINZ

If St. Peter had moved in business or political circles, he would have been forgotten millennia ago. In most areas of life, those who make major mistakes are cast out, left to languish in their failure. But Peter, who made more than one major mistake while following Jesus, has been highly revered within the Church since the days when Jesus walked with the disciples.

In fact, in holding Peter up so high, we can easily miss the essential lesson his life teaches us: that when flawed people experience forgiveness through Jesus, they are freed and empowered to be faithful followers of Christ. Author Stepgen Binz helps us embrace the reality that God works through broken human beings to accomplish truly beautiful things.

Saint Peter reminds us that the papacy—from Peter to the present day—has always been filled by imperfect people. Mysteriously and wonderfully, that’s exactly the type of person through whom God advances the Church!

Listen Like a Dog

And Make Your Mark on the World

JEFF LAZARUS

In a world where everyone is barking but no one’s listening, this clever book reveals that the real antidote to our communication “faux paws” can be learned from observing our canine companions. True listening can enhance every relationship in one’s life, can transform broken associations and inject new life into business and social interactions.

Our communications are expanding horizontally, but shrinking vertically and we’re trading quality for quantity, real for virtual. So, by listening like a dog, readers will find renewed connection and a deeper sense of compassion, companionship, and understanding with the people in their lives.

Each chapter focuses on human behavior and compares that with different aspects of canine behavior, applying it to the world of business and personal communications.

Dogtology

Live. Bark. Believe.

JEFF LAZARUS

Dog·tol·o·gy

noun

  • 1. The belief in Dog.

  • 2. The system of rituals, practices, and behaviors engaged in

by Dogtologists.

Chew on this. As humans, we have a deep need to believe. A need to relate to something greater and more ideal than ourselves. Perhaps that’s why so many millions believe in Dog. Man’s devotion to Dog has come to rival the great -isms and -ologies of the world. This has gone way beyond a hobby. We may not literally worship Dogs, but we come pawfully close. This rabid reverence for Rover has a name:

It’s called Dogtology. Dogtology is for the dog lover who has bailed on a date because they didn’t want Twinkles to be left home alone, for the human whose dog owns a more festive holiday wardrobe than they do, those whose pups dine on free-range bison burgers while they live off ramen, or whose smartphones have more photos of their dog than of the humans in their family.

Live. Bark. Believe. Dogtology is a humorous exploration of man’s fanatical devotion to Dog. In this book, Lazarus makes the case that Dogtology has become a bone-a-fide belief system on par with the world’s great philosophies and religions.

Stopping the Noise in Your Head

The New Way to Overcome Anxiety and Worry

REID WILSON, PhD.

Author Reid Wilson proposes a guide to handle those worries that pop up in our daily lives, and addresses the most serious problems faced by those with panic, social anxieties, and phobias.

At the beginning of this book, readers will see that worry serves an essential function by helping us solve legitimate problems. Through the book, they will look at times when anxious worrying disturbs us instead of helping us, and how worry limits our successes in service of this dominant challenger. The goal is to learn how to win that challenge.

“When worry plays a role in helping us to solve our problems, it does a fantastic job. So I want you to love worry when it serves you. But when it becomes a bothersome noise in your head, it has no redeeming value and you need to kick it to the curb.”, Dr Wilson.

Drawing on a range of sources—from firefighters and fitness instructors to Sir Isaac Newton and Muhammad Ali—Stopping the Noise in Your Head demonstrates the importance of shifting our perspective and stepping towards our challenges in order to regain control of our lives.

7 Ways to Stop the Worry Cycle and Raise Courageous and Independent Children

DR. REID WILSON, PhD. AND LYNN LYONS, LICSW.

One in every five kids suffers from a diagnosable anxiety disorder. Unfortunately, when parents or professionals offer help in traditional ways, they unknowingly reinforce a child’s worry and avoidance. From their success with hundreds of organizations, schools, and families, Reid Wilson and Lynn Lyons share their unconventional approach of stepping into uncertainty in a way that is currently unfamiliar but infinitely successful.

Using current research and contemporary examples, the book exposes the most common anxiety-enhancing patterns— including reassurance, accommodation, avoidance, and poor problem solving—and offers a concrete plan with 7 key principles that foster change. And, since new research reveals how anxious parents typically make for anxious children, the book offers exercises and techniques to change both the children’s and the parental patterns of thinking and behaving.

Arab Dawn

Arab Youth and the Demographic Dividend They Will Bring

BESSMA MOMANI

In the West, news about the Middle East is dominated by an endless stream of reports and commentary about civil war, sectarian violence, religious extremism, and economic stagnation. But do they tell the full story? For instance, who knew that university enrolment in the war-torn Palestinian territories exceeds that of Hong Kong, or that more than a third of Lebanese entrepreneurs are women?

Change is on its way in the Middle East, argues Bessma Momani, and its cause is demographic. Today, one in five Arabs is between the ages of fifteen and twenty-four. Young, optimistic, and increasingly cosmopolitan, their generation will shape the region’s future. Drawing on interviews, surveys, and other research conducted with young people in fifteen countries across the Arab world, Momani describes the passion for entrepreneurship, reform, and equality among Arab youth. With insightful political analysis based on the latest statistics and first-hand accounts, Arab Dawn is an invigorating study of the Arab world and the transformative power of youth.

Sustainable Banking

Managing the Social and Environmental Impact of Financial Institutions

OLAF WEBER AND BLAIR FELTMATE

Sustainable Banking introduces business leaders and students to the many ways in which financial institutions can manage their environmental and social impact and meet the needs of the current generation without compromising the needs of future generations. Olaf Weber and Blair Feltmate go beyond the business case for sustainability: how managing environmental, social, and governance risk can contribute to a bank’s bottom line – to make the sustainability case for banking: how banks and other financial institutions can make a positive impact on society.

All rights available

In their book, Weber and Feltmate discuss the key aspects involved in making a financial institution sustainable: how to manage the direct and indirect impacts of banking activities on the community and the environment, how to minimize and mitigate the environmental footprint of internal operations, and how to account for various types of environmental and social risk in lending and project finance.

They also introduce sustainable banking products and strategies being adopted by industry leaders, such as responsible investing, social finance, and impact lending.

Diaminds

Decoding the Mental Habits of Successful Thinkers

MIHNEA MOLDOVEANU AND ROGER MARTIN

What constitutes successful thinking in business? What are some of the techniques used by top business minds in order to solve problems and create value? Diaminds breaks new ground in addressing these questions.

Mihnea Moldoveanu and Roger Martin, creators of the Integrative Thinking curriculum at the Rotman School of Management, draw upon case studies and interviews - as well as theories and models from cognitive psychology, epistemology, analytic philosophy, and semiotics - to offer a new conception of successful intelligence that is immediately applicable to business situations.

The ‘diamind’ (or dialogical mind) is characterized by bi- stability (simultaneously holding opposite plans, models, courses of action in mind while retaining the ability to act), meliorism (increasing the logical depth and informational breadth of one’s thinking processes), choicefulness (retaining the ability to choose among various representations of the world, the self and others) and polyphony (thinking about the way one formulates and solves a problem while at the same time thinking about the problem itself).

MINHEA MOLDOVEANU is the director of the Desautels Centre for Integrative Thinking and associate professor of Strategic Management at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto.

ROGER MARTIN is Dean, Premier’s Research Chair in Productivity and Competitiveness, and Professor of Strategic Management at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.

Pumping Pure Adrenalin

The Case of the Missing Screenwriter Gary Devore

DON CRUTCHFIELD

On June 28, 1997, renowned Hollywood Screenwriter Gary Devore was driving back from Santa Fe where he was working on a script at a friend’s house, the actress Marsha Mason. At one a.m, a call came in to Wendy Devore, Gary’s wife. He said simply, “I’m pumping pure adrenalin,” language the intelligence community uses as code for “I’m in trouble.” That’s the last time Wendy heard her husband’s voice. It was the last proof of life investigators had to go on.

In Pumping Pure Adrenalin, the reader takes the journey with Crutchfield, turning over every lead and trying to make pieces of the puzzle fit. How did Devore’s car end up in the Los Angeles canal a year later? Why was his DNA sample “lost” in the mail? Why were his hands cut off and replaced by hand bones over 100 years old? Was he the victim of a carjacking in the Mojave dessert and they ditched the car? Did Gary have dealings with drug cartels based on his movie work? Would they want to see him dead? Or was Gary still alive, one of the 900,000 people reported missing in America each year? Lots of guys wanted to slip away from their lives and their wives but Devore was in love. It didn’t seem possible.

Crutchfield then hit upon what he believes to be the source of Gary’s disappearance: A script about the secret war in Panama and the American government’s collusion with drug traffickers to fund the war against the contras. This discovery had already cost one man his life: famed journalist Gary Webb of the San Jose Mercury News had covered the Noriega-Washington connection and ended up a “suicide,” two bullets in his head. Devore’s script “The Big Steal” – a script he felt was his best – detailed the U.S. involvement in this secret war. All 120-pages were wiped away forever by, presumably, Chase Brandon, the CIA’s liaison to Hollywood.

Who killed Gary Devore? No one knows. Still others believe that Gary is alive. The mystery continues but time has a way of giving up secrets so Don Crutchfield will stay on the case as determined to solve it.
