BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week.This memoir is the extraordinary story of how one woman, Masih Alinejad, an awe-inspiring journalist and activist from a small village in Iran, overcame enormous adversity to fight for what she truly believed and founded a major movement for women around the world with the simple removal of her hijab. It all started with a single photo, a bold statement on Masih´s Facebook page: a woman standing proudly, her face bare, her beautiful, curly hair blowing in the wind. Her crime: simply removing her veil, or hijab, which is compulsory for women in Iran. This is the photo that sparked a social-media liberation movement, ´My Stealthy Freedom´. Across Iran, women started posting pictures of their uncovered hair on Masih´s page in open defiance of the strict religious beliefs of their country (and often their families) while sharing their personal stories about this powerful mode of expression. With the creation of ´My Stealthy Freedom´ Masih has gained over one million supporters around the world and inspired Islamic women everywhere to take a stand for their basic human rights. She´s been covered by the media from Vogue to the Guardian, the New York Times and beyond. Last year she was the recipient of the Women´s Rights Award from the Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy. But behind the scenes of this movement, Masih has been fighting a painful personal battle. She is a divorcee - a sin equivalent to prostitution in Iranian culture. As a reporter, Masih has been actively speaking out against the government´s corrupt policies for more than a decade and has faced abuse and slander at every turn. In 2009 she went abroad during the Iranian presidential election with hopes of interviewing Barack Obama. Before the interview could take place, the elections were stolen, Masih´s newspaper was shut down, and thousands of Iranians were arrested. She was expelled from her own country 1. Language: English.

Relearn the intuitive language of face reading From birth, face is our first language. We are born face readers-knowing to seek out human features and faces from the moment our eyes open. We all have the intuitive ability to read and interpret the feelings and expressions of those around us. In Read the Face , master face reader Eric Standop unlocks the power of this innate human ability, sharing his own journey to become a face reading master, along with stories that illustrate the power of this unique language. Using a combination of three different schools of face reading, along with a scientific accuracy to detect the most fleeting microexpressions, Standop is able to read personality, character, emotions, and even the state of a person´s health-all from simply glancing at their face. The book is divided into sections focusing on specific ways that face reading can offer insight, such as Health, Love, Communication, Work and Success. The stories are accompanied by detailed black and white illustrations of faces, allowing readers to observe the same features that Standop interpreted. The final section of the book outlines the meanings of dozens of facial features and face shapes, so that readers can recognize their own innate intuitive powers and develop them. Read the Face is a guide to using the ancient art and science of face reading to go beyond the surface and create the boldest life possible.

Off-Centered Leadership considers an innovative approach to business by exploring what happens when companies stop competing and start collaborating - both externally in the marketplace and internally in building a culture of communication, trust, and alignment. Brimming with lessons on entrepreneurship and culture from the founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, one of the fastest growing independent breweries in the country, members of his leadership team, and external mentors from the worlds of business and art, this game-changing text turns competition on its head by showcasing how competing organizations can work together - and with other local businesses - to reach a common goal. The text dives into how Dogfish Head has blazed a new trail through the development of a revolutionary business model that has called upon musicians, community organizations, and even other breweries to keep product development fresh and create engaging customer experiences. This audiobook documents and addresses the growing pains a company experiences as it evolves from the awkward early start-up years into a mid-sized, sustainable company with hundreds of coworkers. Calagione is candid in sharing his personal leadership challenges and successes and calls on other seasoned vets inside and outside the company who inform and influence the journey of growth and creative expression Dogfish Head is on. This audiobook is rich with practical information entrepreneurs and business people can apply to their own professional journeys. Competition has long been the name of the game in the business world, but what if there was a different way to approach business? The collaboration-over-competition approach to business has been proven to foster positivity, productivity, and ultimately success. By partnering with your competition instead of trying to outsell them, you could actually create a memorable customer experience that will have people coming back for more! p 1. Language: English.

Seeing Ezra: A Mother’s Story of Autism, Uncond...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Seeing Ezra is the soulful, beautifully written memoir of a mother´s fierce love for her autistic son, and a poignant examination of what it means to be ´´normal´´. When Kerry Cohen´s son Ezra turns one, a babysitter suggests he may be ´´different´´, setting her family on a path in which autism dominates their world. As he becomes a toddler and they navigate the often rigid and prescriptive world of therapy, Cohen is unsettled by the evaluations they undergo: At home, Ezra is playfully expressive, sharing profound, touching moments of connection and intimacy with his mother and other family members, but in therapy he is pathologized, prodded to behave in ways that undermine his unique expression of autism. It soon becomes clear that more is at stake than just Ezra´s well-being; Cohen and her marriage are suffering as well. Ezra´s differentness, and the strain of pursuing varied therapies, takes a toll on the family - Cohen´s husband grows depressed and she pursues an affair - all as she tries to help others recognize and embrace Ezra´s uniqueness rather than force him to behave outside his comfort level. It isn´t until they abandon the expected, prescriptive notions about love, marriage, and individuality that they are able to come back together as two parents who fiercely love their little boy. Powerful and eye-opening, Seeing Ezra is an inspirational chronicle of a mother´s struggle to protect her son from a system that seeks to compartmentalize and ´´fix´´ him, and of her journey toward accepting and valuing him for who he is - just as he is. 1.

Gerald Asher, who served as Gourmet´s wine editor for 30 years, has drawn together this selection of his essays, published in Gourmet and elsewhere, for the collective insight they give into why a wine should always be an expression of a place and a time. Guiding the reader through 27 diverse wine regions in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and California, he shows how every wine worth drinking is a reflection of its terroir - in the broadest sense of that untranslatable word. In evocative reminiscences of wines, winemakers, and the meals he has had with them, he weaves together climate, terrain, and local history, sharing his knowledge and experience so skillfully that we learn as we are entertained and come to understand, gradually, that the meaning and pleasure of a wine lie always in the context of its origin and in the concurrence of where, how, and with whom we enjoy it. 1.
