“[Goulston’s]ideas are a bit counter-intuitive but they really do shift the dynamic and help people diffuse and disarm the irrational person leading to more positive outcomes.” -- Online MBA Because some people are beyond difficult... Let’s face it, we all know people who are irrational. No matter how hard you try to reason with them, it never works. So what’s the solution? How do you talk to someone who’s out of control? What can you do with a boss who bullies, a spouse who yells, or a friend who frequently bursts into tears? In his book, Just Listen, Mark Goulston shared his bestselling formula for getting through to the resistant people in your life. Now, in his breakthrough new book Talking to Crazy, he brings his communication magic to the most difficult group of all—the downright irrational. As a psychiatrist, Goulston has seen his share of crazy and he knows from experience that you can’t simply argue it away. The key to handling irrational people is to learn to lean into the crazy—to empathize with it. That radically changes the dynamic and transforms you from a threat into an ally. Talking to Crazy explains this counterintuitive Sanity Cycle and reveals: Why people act the way they do • How instinctive responses can exacerbate the situation—and what to do instead • When to confront a problem and when to walk away • How to use a range of proven techniques including Time Travel, the Fish-bowl, and the Belly Roll • And much more You can’t reason with unreasonable people—but you can reach them. This powerful and practical book shows you how.

That’s right, regardless of what anyone says, Talking To Yourself Is Not Crazy, especially when you do it on purpose, as an instrument to bolster your confidence and strengthen your ability for peak performance. Self-talk is what you think and say about yourself, both in your head and aloud, each and every morning of your life and throughout the day. It is a method of helping you to feel good about yourself, to pepper your subconscious mind with thoughts and emotions that you want to embed, so that when the time comes you can reference and express them with sincerity and conviction. The self-talk that I am speaking about in this book is the talk you use to either simply program your brain to attract what it is that you want to create in your life or to overcome adversity and turn your thinking process around to something more productive.
This book is a study of discourse-the flow of talk-of schizophrenic speakers. Our goal is to understand the processes which account for the ordinary flow of talk that happens all the time between speakers and lis teners. How do conversations happen? What is needed by a listener to follow a speaker's words and respond appropriately to them? How much can a speaker take for granted and how much must be stated explicitly for the listener to follow the speaker's meanings readily and easily? Each time we ask these questions, we seem to have to go back to some place prior to the "ordinary" adult conversation. This time, we have tried reversing the questions and asking: What happens when conversa tion fails? Prompted in part by an early paper by Robin Lakoff to the Chi cago Linguistics Society and by Herb Clark's studies of listener processes, we wondered what a speaker has to do to make the listener finally stop making allowances and stop trying to adjust the conversational contract to cooperate. This inquiry led us to the schizophrenic speaker. When a listener decides that the speaker's talk is "crazy," he or she is giving up on the normal form of conversation and saying, in effect, this talk is ex traordinary and something is wrong. We thought that, if we could specify what makes a conversation fail, we might learn what has to be present for a conversation to succeed.

Is God still talking? This book makes the question a statement. God is still talking. The real question is: Are you listening? God is still talking to you. Did God have anything more to say after the completion of Scripture, or has he retreated into silence? In God Is Still Talking, Dr. James E. Hamer explores these and other questions pertaining to a daily relationship with Christ. He takes the reader on a journey to the greater dimension of living in the Spirit where there is daily access to the presence of God. It is an invisible reality, there to be explored and experienced rather than argued and analyzed, if believers want to hear God talking. Dr. Hamer sees a capacity for more in our personal relationships with Christa "sacred places where God is still speaking. How is it possible to have a personal relationship with someone who is invisible? God Is Still Talking will help you recognize the various ways that God is communicating his direction, insights, and truth to your life. What is God saying to you?"
