The classic New York Times bestseller: Real-life stories from prominent people talking about their experiences as alcoholics. As an alcoholic himself, PBS host Dennis Wholey set out to collect the powerful stories of well-known people who have struggled with this disease. Included in this volume are personal accounts by Jason Robards, Grace Slick, Sid Caesar, Pete Townshend, Don Newcombe, Bob Welch, Graham Chapman, Elmore Leonard, and many more. Whether they come from the worlds of entertainment, as actors, authors, comedians, or musicians, from politics or sports or other public lives, they share the private nightmare of drinking and the hard work of recovery. The Courage to Change also explores how alcoholism is truly a family disease. Rod Steiger talks about his alcoholic mother; the Reverend Jerry Falwell tells about growing up with an alcoholic father; Lois Robards, Sybil Carter, and Florence Caesar relate their own stories as wives of alcoholics. How do you know if you are an alcoholic? What are the symptoms? What should you do if someone in your family is an alcoholic? Where is the help? Is there hope? With inspiration and practical advice from members of Alcoholics Anonymous, this is a book that can save lives. “A brave and powerful work for anyone who cares about people, who desires to be more knowledgeable about human behavior.” —Leo Buscaglia, author of Living, Loving, and Learning “Should be required reading in every school system in America . . . If there’s an alcoholic in your life, one of the best investments you can make is this book.” —Detroit Free Press
This book is a breakthrough book and the first of its kind. It focuses on specific reasons why people dont change. Understanding the obstacles through a conscious awareness makes it easier for people to take the responsibility to change. Many people offer reasons or excuses for maintaining the status quo. They seldom look in the mirror and confront their issues and then challenge themselves to make the changes that they know would create a healthier lifestyle. If you dont change for the better, you will keep heading in the same direction and probably get worse. Your old habits and patterns are reinforced each day and become harder and harder to change. Thats why the book offers simple suggestions of what you can do to start the changing process today. These exercises will get you on the right track and help you develop discipline and new habits in which you take more responsibility for your greater well being. There are no other books like this one. Other books tell you what you should do to live a healthier lifestyle, but lack the self confronting issues that are clearly and simply presented in this book. With this in mind the benefits of Do You Have The Courage To Change cannot be found anywhere else.
The daily meditations, reminders, and prayers from Courage to Change help families encourage their recovering alcoholic loved ones and point to Al-Anon's impact as a vital part of recovery.
Leadership qualities are present in all of us because we have the potential to be strong and influential leaders. If a seed doesn't find the right environment, it will only be left with the potential to be a plant. If our potential is not used then we will remain at this stage for life. I don't know if you are happy with the life you have, personally I wish for more. I want to grow personally, to better myself and to be professional in my field. If we agree that each of us has this potential that is now latent then what makes leaders so different from other people? I think the difference is not so much the major difference as it is the open and proactive attitude that a leader has. The leader is constantly looking for ideas, for new, useful things. This is what makes him different, the ability to embrace a doctrine of the new which he uses for positive purposes as part of the goals of the organization he leads. The portrait I paint of the authentic leader is no more and no less than the image of an ideal leader, the sum of the qualities that in my view a leader should have. Perhaps this ideal is far from what we see in our political or social leaders, but we will discover in them many of the qualities presented in the book. Leaders are survivors, they know how to stay ahead and have learned to do things immediately, well and with quality. They have learned to see the organization they lead as an important part of their lives. They don't see themselves as bosses or paid managers but as architects, people who are shaping a future for themselves and their team members and organization. There is much to be said and I leave it to those who read this book to discover in turn the laws presented and, why not, to discover themselves. I invite you to read these laws and write down in a notebook the valuable things you find here because leadership always starts from core values. If we don't have a set of values to believe in and fight for, then we will never become leaders. All of these laws to me are valuable, they are the essence of leadership and I hope they resonate in the minds of those seeking to learn more about leaders and leadership. The more we are willing to learn the more our power to influence will grow. It's simple and easy if we find the motivation to study and apply the laws of leadership as often as we can.

"This book is for teachers who have good days and bad -- and whose bad days bring the suffering that comes only from something one loves. It is for teachers who refuse to harden their hearts, because they love learners, learning, and the teaching life." - Parker J. Palmer [from the Introduction] Teachers choose their vocation for reasons of the heart, because they care deeply about their students and about their subject. But the demands of teaching cause too many educators to lose heart. Is it possible to take heart in teaching once more so that we can continue to do what good teachers always do -- give heart to our students? In The Courage to Teach, Parker Palmer takes teachers on an inner journey toward reconnecting with their vocation and their students -- and recovering their passion for one of the most difficult and important of human endeavors.
