What are the keys to success? Scientists have studied the traits, beliefs, and practices of successful people in all walks of life. But the answers they find wind up in stuffy academic journals aimed at other scientists. The 100 Simple Secrets of Successful People takes the best and most important research results from over a thousand studies and spells out the key findings in ways we can all understand. Each entry contains advice based on those findings, a real life example of what to do or not to do, and a telling statistic based on scientific research

It's not about the shark : how to solve unsolvable problems by David Niven( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's Not About the Shark opens the door to the groundbreaking science of solutions by turning problems--and how we solve them--upside down. When we have a problem, most of us zero in, take it apart, and focus until we have it solved. David Niven shows us that focusing on the problem is exactly the wrong way to find an answer. Putting problems at the center of our thoughts shuts down our creative abilities, depletes stamina, and feeds insecurities. It's Not About the Shark shows us how to transform our daily lives, our work lives, and our family lives with a simple, but rock-solid principle: If you start by thinking about your problems, you'll never make it to a solution. If you start by thinking about a solution, you'll never worry about your problems again. Through real-life examples and psychology research, David Niven shows us why: *Focusing on the problem first makes us 17 times less likely to find an answer *Being afraid of a problem is natural: we're biologically primed to be afraid *Finding a problem creates power - which keeps you from finding a solution *Working harder actually hides answers *Absolute confidence makes you less likely to find the answer *Looking away from a problem helps to see a solution *Listening only to yourself is one of the best ways to find an answer Combining hard facts, good sense, and a strong dose of encouragement, David Niven provides fresh and positive ways to think about problem solving."--
The missing majority : the recruitment of women as state legislative candidates by David Niven( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why would party leaders harbor bias against women? Two promising and competing explanations offered here are the outgroup effect and the distribution effect. The outgroup effect involves the tendency to evaluate positively those who we see as similar to ourselves. This represents a promising explanation for party bias against women because 85% of county party chairs are men, who would presumably prefer candidates closer to their own image, i.e., other men. Alternatively, the distribution effect involves the tendency to evaluate positively those who resemble the successful. Here, the danger for women is that women are less established economically and politically, thus party chairs who evaluate candidates based on their resemblance to those in power will prefer men. Party chair survey responses are consistent with the notion that as a group they prefer male candidates, and more generally candidates in their own image, supporting the outgroup effect explanation

The politics of injustice : the Kennedys, the freedom rides, and the electoral consequences of a moral compromise by David Niven( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While most historians accept JFK's "moderation" on civil rights as politically prudent, David Niven now argues that Kennedy failed to recognize the political perils of his indifference to civil rights - that a stronger stance would have been not only morally right but also politically expedient. Niven contends that the Kennedy administration's position on civil rights marked a failure to recognize the depth of the connection voters made between Kennedy, the Democratic party, and the civil rights movement, as well as a failure to recognize the importance of the African American voting bloc in the long run." "Niven explores how the Freedom Rides set a pattern for JFK's reaction to the civil rights movement, and how the president tried to make a half-hearted stand for civil rights while shoring up his support among segregationist white southern Democrats. Drawing on voting data, public opinion polls, and a shrewd analysis of the existing literature, he shows that Kennedy and his advisors - including Attorney General Robert Kennedy - had ample evidence to recognize that the old Democratic Solid South would soon be lost and that they should court the African American vote and the white liberal vote outside the South."--Jacket
100 Simple secrets of healthy people : what scientists have learned and how you can use it by David Niven( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Simple Science of a Healthy Life From fitness to diets to emotional health and longevity, what do people who feel and look healthy do differently than those who are overtired, depressed, or out of shape? Every day we face an avalanche of studies and statistics that tell us what we should or shouldn't eat, how long we need to exercise, or how to protect ourselves from secondhand smoke and the harmful rays from the sun. Not only are these studies often contradictory, but the actual scientific information is usually inaccessible. Moving beyond the myths and misinformation, the advice in these pages is not based on one person's opinions or one expert's study. For the first time the research available on the health of average Americans has been distilled into one hundred essential ways that we can become healthier and happier. Each of the core findings is accompanied by a real life example showing these results in action. Eat more often
Death justice : Rehnquist, Scalia, Thomas and the contradictions of the death penalty by Kenneth W Miller( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Justice Scalia has warned of the danger of fallacies that pass for truth simply because they are frequently repeated. Death Justice argues that one fallacy that passes for truth is the widely held notion that Justices Rehnquist, Scalia, and Thomas applied a fixed standard--itself based on a fixed meaning of the Constitution--to death penalty cases. In defiance of their judicial rhetoric, their conclusions simply defy their, or any, conception of consistency. And without a logical, consistent foundation, their findings on the death penalty come to resemble little more than personal political pr

Tilt? : the search for media bias by David Niven( Book )

17 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine in ten Americans believe the media are biased. Trust in journalists ranks beneath that in lawyers, and even the media themselves regularly portray their own industry as slanted toward Democrats and liberals. These perceptions, however, do not coincide with reality, as David Niven reveals in his bold new take on an often-debated subject. Tilt? The Search for Media Bias presents the first comprehensive review of the charges, the evidence, and the effects, beginning with a simple but altogether overlooked premise: to measure media bias or fairness, one has to have a fair baseline with which to compare coverage. Using situations in which presidents, governors, mayors, and members of Congress from different political parties have produced the same results in office, Tilt? compares media coverage of Democrats and Republicans in situations in which they clearly deserved equal treatment. Niven's findings, unmistakable and consistent, reveal that when the output of politicians is the same, media coverage follows--a conclusion that is as provocative as it is timely and necessary
