Dieses Buches macht Sie vertraut mit den verschiedenen Möglichkeiten und Wegen, die uns offenstehen, um den Rapport mit einem anderen Menschen herzustellen, aufrecht zu erhalten und zu vertiefen. Dies heißt nichts anderes, als zwischenmenschliche Beziehungen durch NLP und mit Kommunikation zu entwickeln und gilt natürlich nicht nur für Online-Kontakte. Jedoch besitzen diese aufgrund der fehlenden nonverbalen Signale doch deutlich andere Eigenschaften als direkte Begegnungen. Sie lernen daher sehr gewiefte Techniken kennen, die auf hohem psychologischen Niveau operieren und Ihnen damit Möglichkeiten an die Hand geben, sehr subtil zu durchschauen, mit wem Sie es gerade zu tun haben, und in welchem State sich diese Person aktuell befindet. Dadurch sind Sie imstande, die jeweils optimale Strategie anzuwenden, um Ihre persönlichen Ziele bestmöglich zu verwirklichen, die Sie sich aus der Online-Interaktion mit speziell diesem Menschen zu genau diesem Zeitpunkt erwarten. Hierbei sind kaum Grenzen vorhanden, und es ist weit mehr erreichbar, als Sie sich bislang vorgestellt hatten. Diese Erfahrungen werden sich obendrein noch verstärken, sofern Sie begeistert am Ball bleiben. Ein spezieller Abschnitt des Buches analysiert darüber hinaus, inwiefern die rasante Entwicklung der Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie inzwischen völlig neue Chancen und Herausforderungen eröffenet, um die erfolgreichen Erfahrungen des Coachings mit NLP jetzt auch über diese dynamischen Wege verfügbar zu machen. Dabei ist das ausschlaggebende Anliegen stets, pragmatische und oft überraschende Lösungsvorschläge zu entwickeln. Jedes Kapitel wird in bewährter Weise ergänzt durch zahlreiche Beispiele und Übungen, die es erlauben, das neue Wissen sofort auszuprobieren. Denn eines ist stets besonders wichtig: Mit viel Spaß der eigenen Flexibilität und Kreativität freien Raum zur Entfaltung zu geben. Praxis kompakt. Website: www.energy-hypnose.de

Chris Matthew's trenchant political analysis and unique perspective on politics come to the fore in this boxed set of three of his classic works: American: Beyond Our Grandest Notions; Now, Let Me Tell You What I Really Think; and Hardball. American: People have often wondered what makes America truly great. With a citizenry of vastly different races, religions, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds, what intangible bond unites and defines us as "Americans"? In American, Matthews explores the best America stands for and portrays our country as a beacon for the modern world—unafraid of challenges, moving ever forward, and ready and willing to prevail. Now, Let Me Tell You What I Really Think: In this memoir spanning the Cold War to the Clinton years, Matthews gives the straight-up account of his "God and Country" Catholic school education in Philadelphia, complete with air-raid drills and his early enthusiasm for politics. He shares with us his life's adventures—two years in Africa with the Peace Corps, the challenge of running for Congress in his twenties, and his three decades deep in the "belly of the beast" of American politics—using his own experiences to give us an irreverent look at who we are and whom we trust to lead us. Hardball: Chris Matthews has spent a quarter century on the playing field of American politics—from right-hand man of Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill to host of NBC's highest rated cable talk show Hardball. In this revised and updated edition of his political classic, he offers fascinating new stories of raw ambition, brutal rivalry, and exquisite seduction and reveals the inside rules that govern the game of power

This is the second edition of the study of Ayn Rand's first novel, We the Living, which is set in Soviet Russia, and was written in 1936, ten years after she left the U.S.S.R. Topics explored include: the fascinating history behind the novel's creation; its autobiographical nature; its reception during America's “Red Decade”; its connection to Victor Hugo (Rand's favorite novelist); and, the philosophy of freedom and the sanctity of life which it portrays and defends.
This remarkable, newly revised collection of Ayn Rand's early fiction—including her previously unpublished short story The Night King—ranges from beginner's exercises to excerpts from early versions of We the Living and The Fountainhead.
The Fountainhead, which became one of the most influential and widely read philosophical novels of the twentieth century, made Ayn Rand famous. An impassioned proponent of reason, rational self-interest, individualism, and laissez-faire capitalism, she expressed her unique views in numerous works of fiction and non-fiction that have been brought together for the first time in this one-of-a-kind volume.Containing excerpts from all her novels--including Atlas Shrugged, Anthem, and We The Living--The Ayn Rand Reader is a perfect introduction for those who have never read Rand, and provides teachers with an excellent guide to the basics of her viewpoint.
Peopled by larger-than-life heroes and villains, charged with towering questions of good and evil, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand’s magnum opus: a philosophical revolution told in the form of an action thriller. Who is John Galt? When he says that he will stop the motor of the world, is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he have to fight his battles not against his enemies but against those who need him most? Why does he fight his hardest battle against the woman he loves? You will know the answer to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the amazing men and women in this book. You will discover why a productive genius becomes a worthless playboy...why a great steel industrialist is working for his own destruction...why a composer gives up his career on the night of his triumph...why a beautiful woman who runs a transcontinental railroad falls in love with the man she has sworn to kill. Atlas Shrugged, a modern classic and Rand’s most extensive statement of Objectivism—her groundbreaking philosophy—offers the reader the spectacle of human greatness, depicted with all the poetry and power of one of the twentieth century’s leading artists.
A prolific writer, bestselling novelist, and world-renowned philosopher, Ayn Rand defined a full system of thought--from epistemology to aesthetics. Her writing is so extensive and the range of issues she covers so enormous that those interested in finding her discussions of a given topic may have to search through many sources to locate the relevant passage. The Ayn Rand Lexicon brings together all the key ideas of her philosophy of Objectivism. Begun under Rand's supervision, this unique volume is an invaluable guide to her philosophy or reason, self-interest and laissez-faire capitalism--the philosophy so brilliantly dramatized in her novels The Fountainhead, We the Living, and Anthem.
Rarely has a writer and thinker of the stature of Ayn Rand afforded us access to her most intimate thoughts and feelings. From Journals of Ayn Rand, we gain an invaluable new understanding and appreciation of the woman, the artist, and the philosopher, and of the enduring legacy she has left us.Rand comes vibrantly to life as an untried screenwriter in Hollywood, creating stories that reflect her youthful vision of the world. We see her painful memories of communist Russia and her struggles to convey them in We the Living. Most fascinating is the intricate, step-by-step process through which she created the plots and characters of her two masterworks, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, and the years of painstaking research that imbued the novels with their powerful authenticity. Complete with reflections on her legendary screenplay concerning the making of the atomic bomb and tantalizing descriptions of projects cut short by her death, Journals of Ayn Rand illuminates the mind and heart of an extraordinary woman as no biography or memoir ever could. On these vivid pages, Ayn Rand lives.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography
Despised by the intellectual establishment, Ayn Rand continues to attract many thousands of devoted followers. Her "Objectivist" movement preaches an uncompromising hard line on politics, art, sex, and psychological health. Though much has been written about Rand, The Ayn Rand Cult is the first book to explain the true origin of her ideas and to show how they were shaped into a new, atheistic religion. Jeff Walker shatters many myths about Rand, exposing Objectivism as a classic cult, unusual because of its overt emphasis on self-interest, rationality, and atheism, but typical of cults in its guru-worship, thought control, trial and excommunication of deviants, and hostility to existing society.
