Could Have Would Have Should Have from the Author: Tiqui Atencio. What does it take to be a serious art collector? What drives someone to go after a particular work regardless of the cost? What form of addiction or compulsion causes an individual to devote vast amounts of time, money and emotional energy in pursuit of something that is unobtainable to most of us? Tiqui Atencio has been collecting since she was eighteen years old. Decades later she is one of the most prominent collectors of contemporary art, on the boards of international museums and art-world power lists. For Could Have, Would Have, Should Have, she has interviewed more than eighty of the world's most influential collectors - from financiers to artists - and asked them to tell their own story of how they started to collect and what continues to motivate them. In a series of thirty chapters - among them 'Serendipity', 'Obsessions', 'Auction moments', 'What was I thinking?', 'To sell or not sell', 'Being custodians' - they reveal their highs and lows, the successes and regrets, the shared passions and intense rivalries, the works that got away ... and the ones that perhaps should have done. Their anecdotes and recollections reveal the many practical and emotional aspects of collecting art, all the unexpected pleasures and challenges. What emerges is a frank and honest, surprising and eye-opening, and sometimes hilarious account of a lifelong dedication that is described by some as a heroic commitment and by others as a crazy sickness. Cartoons throughout the book by celebrated artist and satirist Pablo Helguera complement the humorous and entertaining tone of the text.

Daisy Goodwin Grace Sachs, a happily married therapist with a young son, thinks she knows everything about women, men and marriage.

But how well does Grace know her own husband? She is about to find out, and in the place of what she thought she knew, there will be a violent death, a missing husband, and a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for herself and her child.

Predictable Surprises from the Author: Max H. Bazerman. Most events that catch us by surprise are both predictable and preventable, but we consistently miss (or ignore) the warning signs This book shows why such predictable surprises put us all at risk, and shows how we can understand, anticipate, and prevent them before disaster strikes. There is a universal fear factor surrounding this subject: that society and the workplace are filled with disasters in the making that we could prevent if we only knew what to look for. This book plays on that fear and offers a positive, proactive resolution to it.

Integrate The Shadow Master Your Path from the Author: Matthew B. James, MA, PhD. "Dr. Matthew James uncovers the mysteries of your unconscious mind in this compelling and sacred book. He shares soulful information that lets you deeply accept all aspects of your being. I highly recommend, especially for those on a committed spiritual path." Shawne Duperon, CEO ShawneTV, 6-Time EMMY(r) winner, Project: Forgive Founder "Our culture is filled with shame and guilt. We make ourselves sick and tired by trying to be perfect - or at least pretending we are. In INTEGRATE THE SHADOW, MASTER YOUR PATH, Matt James gives us in-depth insight into the Shadow and how this mysterious and somewhat frightening aspect of ourselves can become the powerhouse behind our creativity and passion. If you've ever felt blocked without knowing why, this book is for you!" Jonathan Ellerby PhD, bestselling author of "Inspiration Deficit Disorder," CEO of TAO Inspired Living "We have great power to heal ourselves, but I have often seen with those who come to Humanity Healing that the unconscious mind often gets in the way of full Healing. In INTEGRATE THE SHADOW, MASTER YOUR PATH, Dr. Matt helps us understand that the unconscious really isn't an adversary but you do need to know how to work with it. If good health has eluded you, this book just might show you why and what to do about it." Christopher Buck, CEO, "Humanity Healing International" "Matthew James understands that a true spiritual path incorporates all of who we are: physical, mental, emotions, conscious and unconscious. Sometimes we look at the unconscious as a dark scary cavern of animal desires and motivations. But blending ancient Huna tradition with Jungian thought, Matthew demonstrates that it is only by working with our unconscious that we can access Higher Self. A book for all who are on a spiritual journey!" Liane Queiroz, Editor in Chief, "OMTimes Magazine" "I love affirmations and positive thinking -- but sometimes they just don't work, do they? It feels like there's this huge, invisible, negative resistance. Consciously makes no sense but we can't seem to shake it. In INTEGRATE THE SHADOW, MASTER YOUR PATH, Dr. Matthew James reveals why this happens and gives practical tips for uprooting our deep-seated unconscious negative beliefs and transforming them into stronger positive life-affirming beliefs." Karen Cantrell, Secretary General, "Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, USA"

Churchill Hitler And The Unnecessary War from the Author: Patrick J. Buchanan. Were World Wars I and II inevitable? Were they necessary wars? Or were they products of calamitous failures of judgment? In this monumental and provocative history, Patrick Buchanan makes the case that, if not for the blunders of British statesmen–Winston Churchill first among them–the horrors of two world wars and the Holocaust might have been avoided and the British Empire might never have collapsed into ruins. Half a century of murderous oppression of scores of millions under the iron boot of Communist tyranny might never have happened, and Europe’s central role in world affairs might have been sustained for many generations. Among the British and Churchillian errors were: • The secret decision of a tiny cabal in the inner Cabinet in 1906 to take Britain straight to war against Germany, should she invade France • The vengeful Treaty of Versailles that mutilated Germany, leaving her bitter, betrayed, and receptive to the appeal of Adolf Hitler • Britain’s capitulation, at Churchill’s urging, to American pressure to sever the Anglo-Japanese alliance, insulting and isolating Japan, pushing her onto the path of militarism and conquest • The greatest mistake in British history: the unsolicited war guarantee to Poland of March 1939, ensuring the Second World War Certain to create controversy and spirited argument, Churchill, Hitler, and “the Unnecessary War” is a grand and bold insight into the historic failures of judgment that ended centuries of European rule and guaranteed a future no one who lived in that vanished world could ever have envisioned.
