Based on the work of Lafayette Ron Hubbard, "Study: Wearing One's Hat" is the first-ever secular adaptation of the seminal (and controversial!) Study Technology-an easy, fun way to study any discipline with perfect retention. Although this work has no connection with the Church of Scientology, it is a faithful rendering of Hubbard's research papers and recorded lectures into book form. This book teaches the student how best to overcome the three barriers to learning: lack of 'mass', too steep a gradient, and the misunderstood word. It also teaches the student to use certain conceptual study tools, such as the Pyramid of Knowledge, and to be more relaxed when studying. This is also a text for teachers: it helps facilitate the use of Study Technology in the courseroom without it being a burden. The general aim of the course is that it provides an atmosphere of teamwork, where the student can study at his own pace, with the goal of becoming a professional who can apply what he has learned.

Studies in Psychoanalysis

An Account of Twenty-Seven Concrete Cases Preceded by a Theoretical Exposition

Originally published in 1922, this title was intended for the expert and for the general reader. The original blurb states: "As far as the general reader is concerned, there does not yet exist a volume which gives a straightforward and thoroughly comprehensible explanation of the leading methods and theories of psychoanalysis, in conjunction with an exposition of the philosophical, educational, and general psychological bearings of the doctrine. But the author’s main object is a practical one. ‘The method to which experience has led me, and whose results are here recorded,’ writes Baudouin in the first chapter, ‘is founded upon unceasing collaboration between autosuggestion and psychoanalysis. Whether it be heretical or not, I am confident that immense advantage can be derived from such collaboration.’"

Human beings have long been both fascinated and appalled by randomness. On the one hand, we love the thrill of a surprise party or the freedom of not knowing what tomorrow will bring. We are inexplicably delighted by strange coincidences and striking similarities. But we also hate uncertainty's dark side. From cancer to bird flu, diseases may strike with no apparent pattern. Terrorists attack, airplanes crash, bridges collapse, and we never know if we'll be that one-in-a-million statistic. In this entertaining look at the world of probabilities, Jeffrey Rosenthal, maths professor and improvisational comedian, explains the mechanics of randomness in fields as diverse as poker hands, email spam, crime statistics, opinion polls and lottery jackpots. Read Struck by Lightning and, chances are, you will never look at the world the same way again.

This is an ethnographic analysis of a Conservative Jewish synagogue in a southern New England suburb. Martin Laskin's work follows the participant-observer model and, at the same time, it is a contribution to the field as a study of a mainstream Jewish congregation with a pluralistic orientation. His account of the ways in which his congregation seeks to minister to members with a wide variety of interests and concerns indicates that Conservative Judaism faces the same set of pressures from the secular world as mainstrem Christian bodies, and uses similar strategies of respond.

Linguistics and the Study of Comics

Do Irish superheroes actually sound Irish? Why are Gary Larson's Far Side cartoons funny? How do political cartoonists in India, Turkey, and the US get their point across? What is the impact of English on comics written in other languages? These questions and many more are answered in this volume, which brings together the two fields of comics research and linguistics to produce groundbreaking scholarship. With an international cast of contributors, the book offers novel insights into the role of language in comics, graphic novels, and single-panel cartoons, analyzing the intersections between the visual and the verbal. Contributions examine the relationship between cognitive linguistics and visual elements as well as interrogate the controversial claim about the status of comics as a language. The book argues that comics tell us a great deal about the sociocultural realities of language, exploring what code switching, language contact, dialect, and linguistic variation can tell us about identity – from the imagined and stereotyped to the political and real.
