Quiet : [the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking] by Susan Cain( Recording )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh's sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer. Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so. Taking the reader on a journey from Dale Carnegie's birthplace to Harvard Business School, from a Tony Robbins seminar to an evangelical megachurch, Susan Cain charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal in the twentieth century and explores its far-reaching effects. She talks to Asian-American students who feel alienated from the brash, backslapping atmosphere of American schools. She questions the dominant values of American business culture, where forced collaboration can stand in the way of innovation, and where the leadership potential of introverts is often overlooked. And she draws on cutting-edge research in psychology and neuroscience to reveal the surprising differences between extroverts and introverts. Perhaps most inspiring, she introduces us to successful introverts--from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Finally, she offers invaluable advice on everything from how to better negotiate differences in introvert-extrovert relationships to how to empower an introverted child when it makes sense to be a "pretend extrovert." This extraordinary book has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how introverts see themselves."--Publisher's web site
The murderer's daughter : a novel by Jonathan Kellerman( Recording )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the #1 New York Times bestselling creator of the acclaimed Alex Delaware series comes a tour de force standalone novel that illustrates perfectly why "Jonathan Kellerman has justly earned his reputation as a master of the psychological thriller" ( People ). A brilliant, deeply dedicated psychologist, Grace Blades has a gift for treating troubled souls and tormented psyches?perhaps because she bears her own invisible scars: Only five years old when she witnessed her parents' death in a bloody murder-suicide, Grace took refuge in her fierce intellect and found comfort in the loving couple who adopted her. But even as an adult with an accomplished professional life, Grace still has a dark, secret side. When her two worlds shockingly converge, Grace's harrowing past returns with a vengeance. Both Grace and her newest patient are stunned when they recognize each other from a recent encounter. Haunted by his bleak past, mild-mannered Andrew Toner is desperate for Grace's renowned therapeutic expertise and more than willing to ignore their connection. And while Grace is tempted to explore his case, which seems to eerily echo her grim early years, she refuses?a decision she regrets when a homicide detective appears on her doorstep. An evil she thought she'd outrun has reared its head again, but Grace fears that a police inquiry will expose her double life. Launching her own personal investigation leads her to a murderously manipulative foe, one whose warped craving for power forces Grace back into the chaos and madness she'd long ago fled. Praise for Jonathan Kellerman "Kellerman's psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix." ?Los Angeles Times "Kellerman doesn't just write psychological thrillers?he owns the genre." ?Detroit Free Press From the Hardcover edition

West Hall, Vermont, has always been a place of strange disappearances and old legends. The most mysterious is that of Sara Harrison Shea, who, in 1908, was found dead in the field behind her house, just months after the tragic death of her daughter. Ruthie Washburne has never put much stock in West Hall's rumors. Having grown up in an isolated farmhouse with her mother, Alice, and her younger sister, she dreams of leaving her sleepy town and escaping her mother's odd insistence that they live off the grid. But when Ruthie wakes up one morning to find that Alice has vanished without a trace, she begins to wonder if her mother's eccentricities have a deeper reason -- especially when she finds a copy of Sara Harrison Shea's diary hidden beneath the floorboards of Alice's room. The diary tells the story of a mother on the edge, a mother who is willing to do the unthinkable in order to hold her daughter in her arms once again. And as Ruthie gets sucked deeper into the mystery of Sara's fate, she will discover that she's not the only one looking for someone lost -- nor is she the only person desperate to unlock the secrets that the diary contains.
