Your Life As Art
By Robert Fritz

Your Life As Art

Who better to write a book titled Your Life As Art than a Renaissance man?

Robert Fritz is a musician, composer, writer, painter, teacher, trainer, coach, consultant, seminar developer and leader, entrepreneur, philosopher ... and all with a bit of the scientist thrown in. Mostly, Robert is an artist--and this book is about creating your life just as music, poetry, painting and dance are created. There is a creative process, and Fritz not only reveals it masterfully in this book, he also leads you through unique experiments and processes that bring you to a place of experiencing your own creativity. He explores the relationship among the mechanics, the orientation and the depth of the human spirit within the creative process, and how your life itself can be made as a work of art.

How to Win Friends & Influence People
By Dale Carnegie

How to Win Friends & Influence People

Yeah, yeah ... it's a classic--
an overnight sensation in 1937 that's sold more than 15
million copies to date. This is the grandfather of all the
people-skills books, and those "people" it tells you how to influence will still be studying Carnegie's masterpiece long after today's best-seller list is lost and forgotten.

For more than 50 years, How To Win Friends & Influence People has been seen
in the briefcases and on the bed stands of the most famous and successful men and women in the world. It is a book of principles. Times change; technology changes; but human nature remains the same--and Dale Carnegie knew more about that than anybody. Still does.

Success, Carnegie believed, is 15 percent knowledge and 85 percent "the ability to express ideas, to assume leadership, and to arouse enthusiasm among people." One key he teaches is to be with people in such a way that they always feel important and appreciated around you. The stories and anecdotes of famous people are almost worth the price of the book alone. (Given today's $19.95 paperbacks, this book should cost in the $40s!) Here are two Carnegie gems: "Let the other person feel that the idea is his or hers," and, "Talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other
person."

How To Win Friends & Influence People is a must for every networker's library.
