The Secret Life of Books

Think about all the really special parts of your life. Stay in that good place and breathe.

Visualization — Imagine that you have achieved your goals. See yourself in the present accomplishing whatever it is that you dreamed about.

Come back to this visualization frequently as though it actually is happening. Take Good Care of Yourself — If you feel as though you are sacrificing for someone or something else, you will be resentful. This will attract people and situations that cause more resentment.

Find ways to love yourself first so that you can then love others fully. Zap Your Tolerations What are you tolerating in your life that gets in the way of your being happy? Maybe there are projects in your home that are unfinished.

Perhaps an old relationship still haunts you. He introduces us to words that came into English through long and winding roads one of my favorites is Alcatraz - from the Spanish word for "pelican," which in turn comes from Arabic's al-qadus for "machine for drawing water," which is turn comes from Greek's kados, meaning "jar" - quite a journey for such a miserable place.

The history of the English language is a fractal history, meaning that in order to understand it you also have to understand the histories of a dozen other languages and then the languages that came before them. To try and put it all down on paper is a monumental task indeed. The study of English words is fascinating, though.

I have recently become enamored of the "Way With Words" podcast , which dedicates itself to unraveling questions about English usage. The hosts are funny and engaging, and manage to give a brief history of words and phrases and all the little tics of English that make you annoyed enough to have to call a radio show about it.

It's a pleasure to listen to, which is probably why I listened to that show a whole lot more than I read this book. Hitchings has done an admirable job with this book, trying to cover all the different avenues by which words came into English. The paths that they followed are fascinating, and the stories behind them are the stories of Western culture and civilization.

About the series

The trouble is that Hitchings doesn't do all that good a job in making it interesting to the lay reader, i. By and large, each chapter deals with a different source of vocabulary or a different time in history, but the narrative that he sets up tends to There's no real narrative to focus on, and while I know this isn't supposed to be one, Hitchings is trying to tell us a story. It's a long and complicated one, but it's still a story, and as such needs to flow in order to keep the reader's attention.

I can't fault him for his research or his dedication, but I think he could have given more thought to the organization of the book. Instead of trying to cover as many sources as possible, perhaps he could have narrowed his focus. Instead of throwing out a dozen or so words at a time, he could have given us an in-depth narrative on just a few.

How The Secret Changed My Life: Real People. Real Stories.

The pros she points out are that it is empowering, that even if things seem bleak it reminds you that there is a lot that you can do to change your circumstances. It gives the reader research on optimism, visualization, and the power of perspective, while stating that The Secret encourages people to really visualize their goals clearly in order to attract what they want. The cons that Scott points out are that some people believe that it conflicts with their religious values, while others see it as a complementary approach.

The book does spend considerable time on how to use the Law of Attraction to gain expensive material possessions, and without direct action; many people have asserted that having such a focus on external things and material wealth goes against the spiritual wisdom of the Law of Attraction.

Other cons that Scott points out are the criticism of the idea that we create our own difficult circumstances in life, pointing out people born in extreme poverty, and that The Law of Attraction is not scientifically proven, but more of an anecdotally-observed phenomenon.

Her final thoughts are: "Though there are some hiccups to it, I would say that this book can provide some excellent opportunities for stress relief, and a rough road map to a better life.It says you said to one of them you would call their baby, 'Afghanistan'.

In this book, Hitchings looks at the history of English - and by extension the Western world - through the growth of its vocabulary.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Frankel's final assessment is: More filters. This passage in particular is kind of a jumping-off point for understanding the work these essays are doing:
