Change the Way You See Everything Through Asset-Based Thinking

From Publishers Weekly
Though the content may not be groundbreaking (it distills down to the old refrain, "accentuate the positive"), the photo-heavy and text-light format of Cramer's and Wasiak's discourse on fostering life- and business-improving habits and worldviews strips the hyperbole and fluff common to many self-improvement books, presenting the essentials in an innovative way. Short enough to read on a truncated lunch break (the authors estimate 45 minutes cover-to-cover) and looking not unlike a slick Powerpoint presentation, the book walks readers through the how's and why's of thinking positive ("it leads directly to the thrill of victory"; "you feel more motivated and energetic") and includes the obligatory success stories, though these are glitzier than most-musician Moby and actress Sonia Manzano among them. Bullet-point...

The Hard SF Renaissance

Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Edited by David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer, The Hard SF Renaissance (2002) is a thematic sequel to their 1994 anthology The Ascent of Wonder. The first anthology argued that "[t]here has been a persistent viewpoint that hard [science fiction] is somehow the core and the center of the SF field." The Hard SF Renaissance asserts that hard SF has truly become the heart of the genre and supports its assertion by assembling nearly a thousand pages of short stories, novelettes, and novellas originally published between the late 1980s and early 2000s. A different theory says hard SF stories are engineering puzzles disguised as fiction; The Hard SF Renaissance repudiates this theory in regard to modern hard SF. Most of the selections have strong prose and rounded characters, several are classics, and gadget-driven clunkers are...

When Faster Harder Smarter Is Not Enough: Six Steps for Achieving What You Want in a Rapid-Fire World
Kathryn D. Cramer
0071407626
September 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Cramer, a psychologist who works as a coach, consultant, and trainer, presents a six-step program employing analysis, creative thinking, and communication skills to proactively accomplish more. The book is filled with detailed charts, stories, and quotations of well-known people who explain the process and how to use it. Cramer believes that by approaching issues with creativity and a positive frame of mind, successful solutions can be achieved. Her points make interesting but not quick reading. Every step requires self-analysis and planning, and an action plan for overcoming obstacles, which asks readers to check "attitude" at the door and adopt a realistic perspective on themselves and their outlook. Good, practical guidance for those ready to make changes. Eileen Hardy
