Author: Jen Sincero
Sind Sie zufrieden mit Ihrem Leben, so wie es ist? Oder sagen Sie: Soll’s das wirklich schon gewesen sein? Wenn Sie sich insgeheim denken, dass irgendwo Größeres auf Sie wartet, Ihnen aber noch der letzte Anstoß fehlt, um endlich die verdammte Komfortzone zu verlassen, dann sind Sie hier genau richtig. Denn Jen Sincero wird Sie packen und von der Couch ziehen, damit Sie endlich das Leben leben, auf das Sie selbst neidisch wären. Aber Vorsicht: Nach diesem Buch ist das Leben definitiv anders! Jen Sinceros eigenes Leben war lange Zeit alles andere als berauschend: Sie hangelte sich von einem schlechten Job zum nächsten, hatte nie genug Geld und fuhr ein Auto, das fast auseinanderfiel. Bis sie entschied, dass sie etwas ändern muss. Sie las gefühlt jedes Selbsthilfebuch auf dieser Welt und ging zu Seminaren, bei denen man Leute umarmen oder seine Wut an einem Kissen auslassen musste. Und – es half. Jen Sincero schrieb ihr erstes Buch und schließlich noch ein zweites, das zu einem Bestseller wurde. Sie arbeitete als Coach, gab Seminare, reiste um die Welt und sprach vor großem Publikum. Sie erreichte genau das, wovon sie immer geträumt hatte. Jetzt gibt Jen Sincero ihre Erkenntnisse und ihr Wissen weiter und zeigt, wie man die Fähigkeiten, die in einem schlummern, endlich zum Blühen bringt. Es geht darum, sich glasklar darüber zu werden, was einen glücklich macht und wobei man sich am lebendigsten fühlt, und es dann mutig umzusetzen, statt sich einzureden, man könnte es nicht schaffen. Mit viel Humor und Schlagfertigkeit gibt sie praktische Ratschläge und zeigt Übungen, die dabei helfen die Selbstsabotage zu beenden und das zu erreichen, wovon man träumt.

Women, Emotions, and Cash
Author: Liz Perle
Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
Category: Social Science
A bold and personal book that digs below the surface of one of society's last taboos-money-and illuminates how women's emotional relationship with it affects every part of their lives Long ago, and not entirely consciously, Liz Perle made a quiet contract with cash: she would do what it took to get it-work hard, marry right-but she didn't want to have to think about it too much. The subject of money had, since childhood, been quietly sidestepped, a shadowy factor whose private influence was impolite to discuss. This deliberate denial eventually exacted its price, however, when a sudden divorce left Perle with no home, no job, and a four-year-old with a box of toys. She realized she could no longer afford to leave her murky and fraught relationship with money unexamined. What Perle discovered as she reassembled her life was that almost every woman she knew also subscribed to this strange and emotional code of discretion-even though it laced through their relationships with their parents, lovers, husbands, children, friends, co-workers, and communities. Women who were all too willing to tell each other about their deepest secrets or sexual assets still kept mum when it came to their financial ones. In Money, A Memoir, Perle attempts to break this silence, adding her own story to the anecdotes and insights of psychologists, researchers, and more than 200 "ordinary" women. It turned out that when money was the topic, most women needed permission to talk. The result is an insightful, unflinching look at the once subtle and commanding influence of money on our every relationship.

Reden ist Silber, Schweigen ist ... auch keine Lösung. Denn Worte können zwar unendlich verletzen – aber sie können auch unendlich glücklich machen. »Mein Name ist Tess Turner – dachte ich jedenfalls bis vor kurzem. Und ja, ich habe eine Stimme, aber sie gehört nicht wirklich mir. Ich habe Dinge gesagt, um dazuzugehören, um meinen Eltern zu gefallen, um allen zu gefallen. Ich habe so getan, als wäre ich jemand, der ich gar nicht bin. Ich habe gelogen. Dabei ist mir übrigens nie in den Sinn gekommen, dass alle anderen auch lügen könnten. Die Lügen sind aber eigentlich gar nicht das Problem. Was wirklich weh tut, ist die Wahrheit: Sechshundertsiebzehn wahre Worte, die meine ganze Welt auf den Kopf stellen. Und weil Worte so gefährlich sind – die gelogenen und die wahren – , habe ich beschlossen, sie nicht mehr zu benutzen. Ich bin Pluto. Schweigend. Unerreichbar. Milliarden Meilen von allem entfernt, was ich zu kennen glaubte. « Tess hatte nie das Gefühl, wirklich dazuzugehören. Als sie eines Nachts am Computer ihres Vaters die Wahrheit über ihre Herkunft erfährt – nämlich dass er eben nicht ihr Vater ist – weiß sie auch, warum das so ist. Sie ist Pluto, aber ihre Eltern wollten einen Mars. Oder wenigstens eine Venus. Was soll Tess dazu noch sagen? Ihr fehlen die Worte. Und so schweigt sie. Schweigend sucht sie ihren richtigen Vater. Schweigend unterhält sie sich mit ihrem Plastikgoldfisch, Mister Goldfisch. Schweigend verliert sie ihre beste Freundin und findet einen neuen Seelenverwandten. Und sie gewinnt die allerwichtigste Erkenntnis überhaupt: nämlich, dass Schweigen Macht verleiht – aber Reden noch viel mehr. Ein großartiges literarisches Jugendbuch mit einer ganz eigenen Atmosphäre und einer wundervollen Erzählerin, die mit ihren klaren und poetischen Worten mitten ins Herz jeder Leserin trifft. Der neue Roman der Autorin von ›Meine Schwester lebt auf dem Kaminsims‹ und ›Ketchuprote Wolken‹.
