All or Nothing: Bringing balance to the achievement-oriented personality

USD $24.99 Tax Included

In this fascinating and insightful book, clinical psychologist Mike McKinney takes an informed look at the often talked about but little understood phenomenon of the ‘all or nothing’ personality: a personality type that is driven to focus on one task or area of life to the exclusion of all else.

The author looks at how this personality type can form (through, for example, a deep fear of failure, a desire to please others, or childhood expectations that you must ‘always do your best’) and, more importantly, he explores how balance can be brought to the all-or-nothing personality, so that its best qualities can be retained while the potential negatives are mitigated, resulting in a more meaningful and rewarding life.

Heartfulness

USD $19.99 Tax Included

Beyond Mindfulness – Finding Your Real Life

With anecdotes, things to do and think about and lots to gently read and enjoy, this is a gentle warm book that seeks to bring the reader home to a happy state.
