Have you ever thought about how your seemingly insignificant life events have formed who you are? How intriguing it is to look back and discover how your current life path is directly, or indirectly, connected to your past! Emerging present moments and fading past events surprisingly, yet naturally, bring gratitude in life. From the ordinary to the unusual, this book chronicles a little girl’s journey through the joyous ups and painful downs of searching for life’s gift of gratitude. Life’s important lessons were revealed to her through everything from positive influences found in unexpected teachers, injustice in school from pre-kindergarten to college, ordinary friends around her daily life, unfairness inherent in some Japanese traditions, typical family dynamics, uncovering family secrets, fantasies of being French, and the bursting forth of an unspeakable voice. In Gift of Gratitude, author Claire E. Hallinan shares her gratitude for the gifts that she was given by her past: the ability to think of all experiences as positive, the strengths that she determined to be resilient, and the future that she believed to be hopeful through her unique learning experiences. It is these gifts that she is able to share in her very own classroom as a teacher today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Groberg.

This week on Car Talk, cleanliness is next to impossible for Andrew, due to his Subaru´s weak rear windshield washer spray. Unfortunately for Andrew, the only thing less productive than the spray may be Tom and Ray´s explanation of the cause. Elsewhere, Kate discovered a long gray hair sticking out of her Civic, and is worried she may have a UFO-- that´s an Unidentified Furry Object-- living in her exhaust; Joyce is wondering why her mellow, meditation-teaching husband turns into a mix of Mario Andretti and Tony Soprano when he gets behind the wheel; and 14-year-old Matthew is about to learn a valuable Magliozzi lesson about the benefits of doing a lousy job cleaning his parents´ car. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: February 18, 2012] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/120218/rt_cart_120218_sample.mp3.

Recent university studies show that the most frequent reason relationships dissolve is not abuse, alcoholism, money, or even infidelity but rather a lack of emotional fulfillment. Most books on love and marriage focus on teaching communication and conflict skills but neglect to help couples with the other half of intimacy - separateness. The audiobook outlines a 12-stage model that provides long-term goals and focal points for dialogue that can help couples work through arguments, build healthy relationships, resolve past hurts, and foster closeness. Gurian also delves into differences in white and gray matter between the male and female brains (which may explain the varying needs for affection and independence), deviations in verbal-emotive development, and the effects these have on relationships. Michael Gurian, one of the world´s foremost authorities on gender dynamics with over 25 years of family and marital counseling practice, has authored 27 books on gender psychology published in 21 languages, many of them New York Times best sellers. The Gurian Institute, which he cofounded in 1996, conducts international research and corporate and government training for NASA, the US Department of the Treasury, Google, and Cisco, among others. Gurian´s work has been featured multiple times in nearly all the major media, including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Newsweek, Time, Psychology Today, AARP Magazine, People Magazine, Reader´s Digest, and the Wall Street Journal, and he has made numerous appearances on the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, PBS, and National Public Radio, to highlight a few. He´s a prolific speaker, traveling to dozens of cities annually to deliver keynote speeches at various schools and conferences, including Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, and Stanford University. 1.
