This is my OCD story. It is not a survival guide for others. Just the details of my struggles and battles. This book (originally a journal) was written during the darkest, gloomiest period of my life. It is being published so as to enable others to understand what is happening with their loved ones who suffer from OCD (not for the personal amusement of trolls and religious nuts). As I was working on my OCD survival book, “Breaking Free!” I remembered that I must share what happened, in my life, in the past, before I say, “You can beat it!” • Christians might find this book offensive. So please don’t buy it unless you are a broadminded, sensible Christian who doesn’t blame everything on the demons.

Young people are transforming the global landscape. As the human popu­lation today is younger and more urban than ever before, prospects for achieving adulthood dwindle while urban migration soars. Devastated by genocide, hailed as a spectacular success, and critiqued for its human rights record, the Central African nation of Rwanda provides a compelling setting for grasping new challenges to the world’s youth. Spotlighting failed masculinity, urban desperation, and forceful governance, Marc Sommers tells the dramatic story of young Rwandans who are “stuck,” striving against near-impossible odds to become adults. In Rwandan culture, female youth must wait, often in vain, for male youth to build a house before they can marry. Only then can male and female youth gain acceptance as adults. However, Rwanda’s severe housing crisis means that most male youth are on a treadmill toward failure, unable to build their house yet having no choice but to try. What follows is too often tragic. Rural youth face a future as failed adults, while many who migrate to the capital fail to secure a stable life and turn fatalistic about contracting HIV/AIDS. Featuring insightful interviews with youth, adults, and government officials, Stuck tells the story of an ambitious, controlling government trying to gov­ern an exceptionally young and poor population in a densely populated and rapidly urbanizing country. This pioneering book sheds new light on the struggle to come of age and suggests new pathways toward the attainment of security, development, and coexistence in Africa and beyond.

Maybe you have a great idea for a movie, and you're thinking to yourself, "Man, if I only knew how to write a screenplay." Maybe you've started your screenplay already, but you get to a certain point where you JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT!

Don't give up on your dreams just yet--not until you've read this book. Over the course of his successful career as a writer and producer, Josh Miller has learned plenty about the art of screenwriting. There are no fancy tricks or shortcuts to making a great screenplay, just time-honored techniques, fundamental story elements, and one secret ingredient: you. Josh will show you how to craft a compelling story and deploy advanced techniques used by professional screenwriters, but most importantly, he'll teach you how to harness your unique voice, experience and perspective to give your screenplay real substance. Get this book, and get yourself unstuck.

From the illustrator of the #1 smash The Day the Crayons Quit comes another bestseller--a giggle-inducing tale of everything tossed, thrown, and hurled in order to free a kite! When Floyd's kite gets stuck in a tree, he's determined to get it out. But how? Well, by knocking it down with his shoe, of course. But strangely enough, it too gets stuck. And the only logical course of action . . . is to throw his other shoe. Only now it's stuck! Surely there must be something he can use to get his kite unstuck. An orangutan? A boat? His front door? Yes, yes, and yes. And that's only the beginning. Stuck is Oliver Jeffers' most absurdly funny story since The Incredible Book-Eating Boy. Childlike in concept and vibrantly illustrated as only Oliver Jeffers could, here is a picture book worth rescuing from any tree.

Airports used to be places we just passed through on our way to somewhere else. But with an increase in layovers and ever-mounting delays, "dwell-time" in airports has become an inevitable, tedious, and often infuriating part of travel today. This essential guidebook won't get you where you want to go faster, but it does provide great suggestions for eating well, taking care of business, and having fun while you wait. In clear, cleverly written profiles of each airport, Harriet Baskas,'s airport expert, spells out: the best places to eat and what local specialties to try; diversions for kids (playgrounds, observation decks, and museums); quick trips to make by cab (including times to the nearest city); locations of business centers and data ports; shops with interesting, reasonably priced items; well-stocked bookstores; art and history exhibits; clean places to shower and quiet corners for taking a nap. In some airports, she reveals, you can even get a dentist to look at that troublesome tooth, a shoemaker to fix a wobbly heel, and a masseuse to case travel-induced kinks -- and crankiness. Organized alphabetically for easy reference. Stuck at the Airport is the indispensable travel companion for business and leisure travelers alike.

A behind-the-scenes examination of Asian Americans in the workplace In the classroom, Asian Americans, often singled out as so-called “model minorities,” are expected to be top of the class. Often they are, getting straight As and gaining admission to elite colleges and universities. But the corporate world is a different story. As Margaret M. Chin reveals in this important new book, many Asian Americans get stuck on the corporate ladder, never reaching the top. In Stuck, Chin shows that there is a “bamboo ceiling” in the workplace, describing a corporate world where racial and ethnic inequalities prevent upward mobility. Drawing on interviews with second-generation Asian Americans, she examines why they fail to advance as fast or as high as their colleagues, showing how they lose out on leadership positions, executive roles, and entry to the coveted boardroom suite over the course of their careers. An unfair lack of trust from their coworkers, absence of role models, sponsors and mentors, and for women, sexual harassment and prejudice especially born at the intersection of race and gender are only a few of the factors that hold Asian American professionals back. Ultimately, Chin sheds light on the experiences of Asian Americans in the workplace, providing insight into and a framework of who is and isn’t granted access into the upper echelons of American society, and why.

“I am stuck in the mud and need help to get out.” Represent God as holding us up through life problems and moving us along on our journey through life. The Lord while I was in the mud was with me and he carried my burdens, pain, past hurts, and disappointments upon Himself. Meaning the weight, I felt internally is from the devastating blows of life experiences. The whole point of being on a journey and getting struck in the mud is learning to love yourself with your imperfections because God does Love us.

Tourism has become one of the most powerful forces organizing the predatory geographies of late capitalism. It creates entangled futures of exploitation and dependence, extracting resources and labor, and eclipsing other ways of doing, living, and imagining life. And yet, tourism also creates jobs, encourages infrastructure development, and in many places inspires the only possibility of hope and well-being. Stuck with Tourism explores the ambivalent nature of tourism by drawing on ethnographic evidence from the Mexican Yucatán Peninsula, a region voraciously transformed by tourism development over the past forty years. Contrasting labor and lived experiences at the beach resorts of Cancún, protected natural enclaves along the Gulf coast, historical buildings of the colonial past, and maquilas for souvenir production in the Maya heartland, this book explores the moral, political, ecological, and everyday dilemmas that emerge when, as Yucatán’s inhabitants put it, people get stuck in tourism’s grip.

Feeling "Stuck" Caught in a vicious cycle and don't know how to break free? Lean how to become 'unstuck' and make your future brighter than your past. One of the most common reasons that people come in to therapy is because of what they describe as a feeling like being stuck. What that means is, being stuck is when essentially we know one thing up here, we know consciously the logical level, we realize reality, but there's something on the inside that just feels very, very different. We know what we should be eating, we know what we should be avoiding, we know what habits are bad for us, we know what habits are good for us, but despite knowing it up here something on the inside just keeps magnetically pulling us towards a different direction. Whereas the things that we know are good for us it's like something on the inside is kind of resisting, or repelling us away from those things. The thing I'd like you to take onboard here is to understand that it's a perfectly normal and natural part of the human condition to experience what we'd call inner conflict. In other words, where our head and our heart are sort of out of whack, and not playing on the same team. Whilst this is normal and very, very common it can also sometimes be very unhelpful. Especially when that inner conflict is either pulling us away from things that would really be in our best interest to be able to do, and especially when they're pulling us towards things that can be potentially self destructive.

Since the release of Halftime in 1994, more than 150,000 people have purchased that book and begun a journey from success to significance. In a way that no one could have predicted, Halftime started a widespread movement viewing midlife as an opportunity rather than a crisis. It helped men and women between the ages of 35 and 50 realize they may have another thirty years of active, vibrant living ahead of them. And, according to author Buford, retirement is not the optimal option.But now, many of the people who began the journey from success to significance have found themselves sidetracked, stuck in the middle of their transition.Stuck in Halftime coaches readers how to get past the barriers that stand in their way to maturity and fulfillment. It outlines eight "myths of halftime" and explains the new set of rules for this second half of life’s journey. Combining practical guidance with personal stories of people who have become "unstuck," Stuck in Halftime renews the vision and determination of those who heard the "still, small voice of God" calling them to a life of significance.

This memoir by one of the foremost scholars of the Soviet period spans three continents and more than half a century—from the 1950s when Lewis Siegelbaum's father was a victim of McCarthyism up through the implosion of the Soviet Union and beyond. Siegelbaum recreates journeys of discovery and self-discovery in the tumult of student rebellion at Columbia University during the Vietnam War, graduate study at Oxford, and Moscow at the height of détente. His story takes the reader into the Soviet archives, the coalfields of eastern Ukraine, and the newly independent Uzbekistan. An intellectual autobiography that is also a biography of the field of Anglophone Soviet history, Stuck on Communism is a guide for how to lead a life on the Left that integrates political and professional commitments. Siegelbaum reveals the attractiveness of Communism as an object of study and its continued relevance decades after its disappearance from the landscape of its origin. Through the journey of a book that is in the end a romance, Siegelbaum discovers the truth in the notion that no matter what historians take as their subject, they are always writing about themselves.
