Real Happiness at Work brings the profound benefits of meditation to an area where people could use it most—the workplace. And it’s written by one of the world’s leading meditation teachers. A follow-up to Real Happiness, the New York Times bestseller, Sharon Salzberg’s Real Happiness at Work is a practical guide to improving work life through mindfulness, compassion, and ingenuity. It’s about being committed without being consumed, competitive without being cruel, managing time and emotions to counterbalance stress and frustration. It shows readers how to be more creative, organized, and accomplished in order to do better, more productive work. Dividing the idea of workplace satisfaction into eight pillars, Real Happiness at Work is filled with secular wisdom; core meditations on broad themes like motivation, awareness, and seeing the good in others; and more than a dozen exercises, including Moving From Me to We and When Things Go Wrong. Sprinkled throughout the book are short “stealth” meditations, the kind that are quick, private, and doable anywhere—“Let the phone ring three times, follow your breath, then pick it up” and “For an upcoming one-on-one conversation, resolve to listen more and speak less.” Even the best jobs are filled with stress, tough deadlines, impatient bosses, seemingly endless meetings—all the ills of harried life. But as science increasingly shows, meditation is the antidote.

In this age, materialism has dominated every sphere of our lives and our spirit is entangled by material walls; people are psychologically frustrated & spiritually devastated. Thus, many are in quest of happiness, trying their best to achieve peace & serenity through different ways and means. Majority of people believe a little bit of fame, wealth and sensual desires bring joy and happiness in their lives. But in reality how many of them reach their goal? Does these ways and means really bring joy and happiness? Are people satisfied by achieving success in this field? If not, then which ways and means will lead us towards satisfaction and bring happiness in our lives. Dr. Yasir Qadhi, a reputed scholar of Islam, answers these questions in a concise and simple way by presenting the Qur'anic model for achieving happiness in this book. He turns our attention towards the essence/nature of human beings, which is not only the material body but the Ruh also. People are nourishing their body regularly, on exact time, but suffocating the Ruh, leaving it hungry. In order to achieve peace and happiness we need to feed the Ruh as well because without that one cannot achieve happiness.

Each and every human being in history has been created to make the world a better place. Some of us have been blessed with more health, wealth, wisdom, and security. But all of us have a unique ability to make a difference. There is a compelling Quran verse informing us that all living beings have been chosen by God as his khalifas (agents and inheritors) on earth. The question that constantly whispers in my ear and drives my every action is “In what specific ways can I be God’s khalifa?” With so much chaos surrounding us, where would I start? I had recently felt confused. I wanted to do something, but I didn’t know what. And so this book emerged. Writing it has been a process to overcome my paralysis and start the momentum. Through this self-reflection, I have come up with a five-step formula to living happily forever. Firstly, I hope this book will inspire others to determine their ultimate destiny as I’ve attempted to do. Secondly, I hope to provide a roadmap for others toward an eternal life of happiness by helping those less fortunate, utilizing our unique skills and interests. Thirdly, I hope to bridge the gap between the American and Saudi cultures. Extremists have created unjustified distrust on both sides. Most Americans feel Saudis are violent, backward, and unapproachable, while many Saudis see Americans as imperialistic warmongers. Having lived most of my life between both cultures, I will highlight the similar values and beliefs Americans and Saudis share. I aim to outvoice the extremists, who have thus far dominated the conversation, and to provide a realistic picture of both cultures.

What makes you happy? Sometimes people will say 'If only I had that car, or that lover or that house, then I would be happy', but that kind of happiness is always short lived because it's always based on something or someone else. I would like you to consider for a moment that true happiness can actually be created by you. In life you may think you need certain things or certain people to be happy. We don't need to rely on our happiness coming from another person's actions or things. Every single one of us has the ability to create our own happiness. True happiness is not given, it grows inside of you and I'm going to show you how you can create this right now.

Positively Caroline: How I Beat Bulimia for Good and Found Real Happiness, is one of the first books of its kind to tackle the subject of how eating disorder survivors can and do create lives of joy and health that persist past the early years of recovery. Some media reports have led people to believe that there is an "addictive personality" that careens from addiction to addiction without ever experiencing lasting wellness, but Caroline's story is a demonstration that many people can, and do, put food into its proper perspective and then go on to handle other life challenges without sliding backwards into food abuse or turning to other addictive substances or behaviors. Positively Caroline is the sequel to the bestselling My Name is Caroline (Doubleday 1988), which was the first major autobiography to cover recovery from bulimia, and which continues to sell well today. The book was an Alternate Selection of the Literary Guild and was reviewed in countless newspapers and magazines all over the world, and featured on television and radio programs. Tens of thousands of people say that the book helped them to have hope for themselves or someone close to them, and that it gave them the courage to speak up and get the help they needed. Positively Caroline picks up where My Name is Caroline left off, and covers many of the issues that women struggle with, regardless of whether or not they are recovering from an eating disorder, including: How to maintain a sane relationship with food throughout different life stages, such as pregnancy How to role model healthy behavior so that children learn how to have positive feelings toward their own bodies How to find happiness and balance between work and parenting How to follow your own dreams in life and take risks so that life is fulfilling and rewarding.
