Falling in love is a thrilling, transcendent experience . . . but what about staying in love? Once the intense excitement of a new relationship starts to fade, you may think your only options are to somehow recapture that early magic or settle for a less than fulfilling love life. Now love, sex, and relationship expert Laura Berman, Ph.D., taps the latest scientific and metaphysical research to offer an inspiring alternative: a higher level of love beckoning you to move forward, not backward. Using the essential truth we’ve learned from the study of quantum physics—the fact that at our molecular core, each of us is simply a vessel of energy—Dr. Berman explains how you can use what’s happening in your inner world to create a level of passion, connection, and bliss in your relationship that you’ve never imagined possible. Drawing on her clinical practice and case studies as well as her personal journey, she guides you to: • Plot your unique energetic frequency of love with her Quantum Lovemap • Work consciously with the energy of your body, heart, and mind • Make four key commitments designed to raise your energetic profile • Bring your frequency into harmony with your partner’s so that you can grow together • Learn how to have Quantum Sex (which is every bit as good as it sounds) We can’t go back to the honeymoon phase, but there is something so much better available. Quantum Love lets you reach new heights of intimacy as you gain a fuller sense of purpose in life and love.

Composed by two prominent statesmen-generals of classical China, this book develops the strategies of Sun Tzu's classic, The Art of War , into a complete handbook of organization and leadership. The great leaders of ancient China who were trained in Sun Tzu's principles understood how war is waged successfully, both materially and mentally, and how victory and defeat follow clear social, psychological, and environmental laws. Drawing on episodes from the panorama of Chinese history, Mastering the Art of War presents practical summaries of these essential laws along with tales of conflict and strategy that show in concrete terms the proper use of Sun Tzu's principles. The book also examines the social and psychological aspects of organization and crisis management. The translator's introduction surveys the Chinese philosophies of war and conflict and explores in depth the parallels between The Art of War and the oldest handbook of strategic living, the I Ching (Book of Changes).

Yoga how-to books abound, a direct reflection of the rapidly expanding popularity of this ancient practice. Effort and Surrender does not show how to "do" yoga. Instead, it tells - through illustrations and quotations - how to "feel" what yoga is and what it means to experience mind and body movements as a life enhancer and as a way of life. This beautiful celebration of yoga's artistry and insight makes a one-of-a-kind gift book. Talented editor and photographer Eric Dinyer, a dedicated yoga practitioner himself, used his own experience and deep understanding to convey yoga's challenges and far-reaching possibilities. Eric's sepia-rich photographs of 37 classic asanas intertwined with vibrant and sweeping ink lines give the postures an energy of their own. Equally moving are the collection of historical and modern yoga quotes, such as this: "Yoga is a way of moving into stillness in order to experience the truth of who you are." - Erich Schiffmann. Effort and Surrender is a very rich experience indeed.

Long acknowledged as a classic text on strategy, Sun Tzu's The Art of War has been admired by leaders as diverse as Mao Zedong and General Norman Schwartzkopf. However, having been written two thousand years ago, the book can be somewhat daunting to the modern reader. Mark McNeilly, author of Sun Tzu and the Art of Business (OUP, 2011), which made Sun Tzu accessible to the business executive, has extracted the six concepts most applicable to modern warfare, making them easy to understand and apply to military situations. Drawing on a wealth of fascinating historical examples, McNeilly shows how these six principles might be used in wars of the future---both conventional wars and terrorist conflicts---and how they can provide insight into current affairs, such as the war on terrorism and China's increasingly important strategic and military role in the world. This updated edition reflects on all that has happened in the past ten years, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the challenge of Iran, the "Arab Spring," and the continued rise of China. Each chapter includes brand new examples to explain important concepts in The Art of War. Including the full text of The Art of War in the popular translation by Samuel Griffith, with cross-references to quotations used in the book, Sun Tzu and the Art of Modern Warfare unlocks these elusive secrets for anyone interested in strategy and warfare, whether they are professional soldiers, military history buffs, or business executives.
