The Dice Man's son must roll the dice himself as his neat and orderly world begins to crumble. Larry Rhinehart is the son of the renegade psychiatrist Luke Rhinehart, who introduced the world to dice-living and dice therapy, where decisions are made not by the self but by the roll of a die. Since his father deserted him when he was still a child, Larry has bitterly rejected everything his father stood for. He has embraced order and control. Now a wealthy Wall Street analyst, he is about to marry the boss's daughter, and become a good deal wealthier. Then Homeland Security shows up in Larry’s office searching for his father, who is suspected of being behind acts of cyber warfare against government, banking and Wall Street interests. Larry's carefully organized world begins to crumble. Forced to try find his father before the government can, his search is made in the company of Kim, a sexy admirer of Luke’s. His quest takes him to Lukedom, a Dice Commune where everyone changes roles every day—to Larry’s own dicing, which leads to love, a broken engagement, rigging the stock market—and total chaos. Larry’s search is by turns funny, moving, and erotic. By the time he finally confronts his father he has been profoundly and hilariously changed and his previously successful, conservative life has been turned on its head.

In recent years philosophy has become increasingly popular as an alternative source of inspiration in helping people to lead a good life. Ancient Greek philosophy in particular was conceived as a practical endeavour intended to have an impact on how people lived. This book, loosely organised around the structure of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, draws on Aristotle’s ideas about virtue and on contemporary virtue ethics to create a framework that can be used by psychotherapists and counsellors in helping their clients – or themselves – to live flourishing lives. It provides a clear discussion of Aristotle’s key ideas about virtue and the good life and places these within the context of other philosophical and psychological theories, both ancient and contemporary. It goes on to address the practical relevance of these ideas to the everyday work of the therapist, providing suggestions for practice and a number of useful exercises. These will be particularly helpful for practitioners working with issues such as finding value and meaning in life, making difficult decisions, developing helpful character traits, managing disruptive emotions and increasing self-control. Reason, Virtue and Psychotherapy bridges the gap between academic philosophy and real life. It will be of interest to practising counsellors and psychotherapists as well as students and trainees in these areas. Since it is written in a clear, jargon-free style, it is also appropriate for all those who are curious about how ancient understandings can improve their life.

Everyone who has ever thought about writing or working in Hollywood will want to read this book. These are the personal and often outrageous adventures of a veteran screenwriter who has worked extensively for the major studios, as well as with major directors such as Richard Donner and James Cameron. There are abundant writing lessons to be learned here, but "life" lessons, as well. In fact, this story is about "getting over" Hollywood, more than just "getting into" Hollywood. Readers looking past the material or superficial (e.g., celebrity) for something more meaningful in their lives, will find this book truly uplifting. "If youre thinking of being a screenwriter, jamming all your possessions into a subcompact and driving cross-country, then it behooves you to read Carters experiences."

Two advertising veterans explain the myths about branding—and how even the smallest businesses can benefit by defining themselves to their customers. Branding may be the single most misunderstood concept in marketing. It’s not only for big businesses with big bucks. It’s not about a logo, a color, a font, or a type of advertising. Branding is defining a company’s image in such a way that the customer is left with a single feeling about that business and what they do. Branding is about finding a business’s juicy center. Even small businesses on shoestring budgets and sole practitioners can learn the principles of good branding—an effort that encompasses not just messaging, but multiple day-to-day decisions that shape and build your customers’ perceptions and emotions. With numerous real-life examples and the expertise that comes only from experience, this book guides you to a new way of thinking about your business, and the kind of wisdom that no amount of money can buy.

This is the first book of a trilogy, a true story of the earlier years of an Englishman whose business ideas attracted government ministers. When barely out of his teens, he helped to take on the pharmaceutical giants of the '60s and won. He then refused an offer to spy for his country but was arrested for spying, the man who got involved in the sex for secrets trade in Eastern Europe, and set up an office in Prague just before and after the '68 revolution, who sadly lost his good friend, Eva. He was unwillingly involved in one of the biggest acid raids of the late '60s and '70s in San Francisco, and escaped death by the skin of his teeth. He mixed with celebrities and heads of state, made a lot of money and lost a lot of money. Much of this takes place in the swinging '60s and '70s, when the slogan of the time was "make love not war" and it was the time of the Beatles. He loved adventure and when a new idea came into his head he had to follow through.

It's not easy being named Oswald, not in the city where Lee Harvey grabbed his fifteen minutes of infamy and choked it to death. It's especially hard when half the town seems determined to kill you for reasons as murky as the river that splits the city in two. For Lee Henry Oswald, a private investigator, Gulf War vet, and terminal loner, it's just one more burden to face as he trudges through the gritty underbelly of the concrete and glass metropolis that is Dallas in the new millennium. A simple assignment turns deadly when Oswald asks the right questions in the wrong places, and finds himself drawn into a shadowy world of smooth-talking drug lords and double-dealing real estate developers. In the end, he learns that blood is not always thicker than water, especially the muddy tributaries of the Trinity River, where he confronts the deadly results of his own decisions as he races to save the life of his partner. Reminiscent of the tightly wrapped works of Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, Still River is a startling debut mystery.

Life remains a mystery and whatever action we undertake in life is a risk. Just like the act of juggling a dice, one never knows what number will be thrown up. As we carry on with the game of life, we play by whatever number emerges and try our very best to make the most of the opportunities presented to us. Man is created to be different and no one man is the same as another. Each being remains special and with peculiar features crafted by the Master chess player, God. He is the creator and holds the aces just like in the game of chess. A lot of times things do not turn out the way we have planned or expected it, just as in the stories I have told here but we keep going on until the race is over. Each story has its own peculiar characters or actors playing on the stage called life. The outcome of their situation is largely dependant on their ability to take full advantage of the chances thrown their way which is determined by forces way beyond their control.
