On October 16, 1995, Black men of all ages, religions and backgrounds gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. They were there on a mission - to mobilize and motivate, as part of what would become the largest event of its kind in U.S. history: the Million Man March. The Million Man March was a movement like no other. It brought together Black men who were committed to inspiring and empowering themselves and each other to make positive and lasting changes in their families and communities. The March was widely covered by news media across the country and the world. Now, this new picture book shares the story of the March in a new light: through the eyes of a little girl who was with her father the day Black men made history.
When it first developed in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP was considered a great advancement in psychotherapy and was widely studied as a means by which to subjectively study language, communication and personal change. Today, it is a highly successful means by which individuals such as yourself can not only get better in touch with yourself and how you interact with the world through language and other forms of communication, but to better understand those around you and make enhanced decisions, provide advice, and boost yourself image through understanding. This book was written to assist every individual who ever wanted to become more in tune with their minds and their interactions with peers, family, and friends. You will learn what NLP is and when it was first developed along with the basic studies originally published in the early 1970s. You will learn how to start reading through and understanding maps and filters, the basics of learning, unlearning and relearning and how communication and language are the fundamental basis for essentially every action you take in life. You will learn how to control pacing and leading in communication, what perception involves and how to understand the various representational systems described by NLP. You will learn how to recognize predicates of conversation and eye accessing cues as well as how to recognize and work with various physiological states and emotional freedom. You will learn the basics of elicitation and anchors, including resource anchoring, collapsing anchoring, and future pacing. Top psychologist and therapists have been interviewed for this guide, with dozens providing information on which aspects of NLP are most effective for each individual. Using their advice as a map, you will learn how to use loops and systems and understand the different levels of learning.

The world isn’t coming to an end, contrary to what you may have heard. But the media’s near-exclusive focus on conflict and disaster means that the progress and everyday acts of brilliance taking place across the globe go unnoticed. Jurriaan Kamp shows that optimism—intelligent optimism, not a rose-colored-glasses brand of wishful thinking—is good for not only your mind but your body too. He details a whole host of health problems that can actually be linked to pessimism. Moreover, there is good reason for optimism: Kamp proves that on the whole we’re living longer, becoming smarter, working less, and growing richer. Not only that, democracy is on the rise, and violence is declining. This book will help you tune out the media’s focus on sensationalism and negativity and turn on your natural optimism so you’ll drop into a “real world” that’s richer than you ever imagined.
