              From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life This book is amazing - Chris Evans (Hardback)

              By Brooks, Arthur C.

              This essential book by behavioural scientist and journalist Arthur C. Brooks is based on a feature he wrote for The Atlantic, which has been read over one million times and remains one of the magazine's most popular articles. This is a happiness strategy for what Brooks sees as o...ur inevitable professional decline, and a way to convert that decline from being a source of regret into an opportunity for growth and transcendence. Early in adulthood, our expectations about the future are two-fold: our happiness will rise, and our professional abilities will increase. Unfortunately, for the majority of us, happiness declines gradually throughout adulthood until its nadir in one's fifties. The result is an abrupt shock for many people in their fifties: low happiness and professional decline, neither of which is anticipated, and thus for which we have no good strategies. The typical reaction is to 'rage against the dying of the light.' That is, work harder and longer to get your groove back and stay abreast of young people. Unfortunately, that strategy doesn't work and is really only successful at causing anger and frustration. There must be a better way. There are several, and they promise to make age sixty happier than fifty (and seventy and eighty better still). But to understand these strategies, we need a deep dive into the world of psychology, brain science and economics. We need to visit a few gurus in the mountains of India. We need to understand what J. S. Bach did right and Charles Darwin did wrong. Most importantly, we need to be willing to change our whole approach to life and love. This book shows how, in detail - resulting in four specific commitments - Jump - Serve - Worship and Connect.

              The #1 New York Times Bestseller From the bestselling author and columnist behind The Atlantic's popular How to Build a Life series, a guide to transforming the life changes we fear into a source of strength. In the first half of life, ambitious strivers embrace a simple formula ...for success in work and life: focus single-mindedly, work tirelessly, sacrifice personally, and climb the ladder relentlessly. It works. Until it doesn't. It turns out the second half of life is governed by different rules. In middle age, many strivers begin to find success coming harder and harder, rewards less satisfying, and family relationships withering. In response, they do what strivers always do: they double down on work in an attempt to outrun decline and weakness, and deny the changes that are becoming more and more obvious. The result is often anger, fear, and disappointment at a time in life that they imagined would be full of joy, fulfillment, and pride. It doesn't have to be that way. In From Strength to Strength, happiness expert and bestselling author Arthur C. Brooks reveals a path to beating the striver's curse. Drawing on science, classical philosophy, theology, and history, he shares counterintuitive strategies for releasing old habits and forming new life practices, showing you how to: - Kick the habits of workaholism, success addiction, and self-objectification - Meditate on death-in order to beat fear and live well - Start a spiritual adventure - Embrace weakness in a way that turns it into strength. Change in your life is inevitable, but suffering is not. From Strength to Strength shows you how to accept the gifts of the second half of life with grace, joy, and ever deepening purpose.

              Entrepreneurship, personal responsibility, and upward mobility: These traditions are at the heart of the free enterprise system, and have long been central to America's exceptional culture. In recent years, however, policymakers have dramatically weakened these traditions--by exp...loding the size of government, propping up their corporate cronies, and trying to reorient our system from rewarding merit to redistributing wealth. In The Road to Freedom, American Enterprise Institute president Arthur C. Brooks shows that this trend cannot be reversed through materialistic appeals about the economic efficiency of capitalism. Rather, free enterprise requires a moral defense rooted in the ideals of earned success, equality of opportunity, charity, and basic fairness. Brooks builds this defense and demonstrates how it is central to understanding the major policy issues facing America today. The future of the free enterprise system has become a central issue in our national debate, and Brooks offers a practical manual for defending it over the coming years. Both a moral manifesto and a prescription for concrete policy changes, The Road to Freedom will help Americans in all walks of life translate the philosophy of free enterprise into action, to restore both our nation's greatness and our own well-being in the process.
