Introducing the first book in a powerful new series, The Tarcher Master Mind Editions: Essential Books of Inspiration, Instruction, and Motivation. What mind can conceive, man can achieve. Our decisions impact every area of our lives. Making better decisions means living a better life. But how can we develop the habit of making great decisions? Every noteworthy achievement the world has ever seen was born with a single thought; and every great man who ever lived has been a man of decision. Raymond Charles Barker's The Power of Decision reveals this principle of success and illustrates the process of choice that all of us must take-and that all of us are capable, this very second, of taking-to change our lives and make our dreams come true. Indecisive people are failure prone, and Dr. Barker examines this basic truth while exploring the decision-making process in the individual, and the role of the subconscious mind in either abetting or thwarting each of our conscious decisions. He provides specific steps to shift the balance of decision-making power in your favor, and he brings to light the constant, ever-present power of will to change a situation- and yourself-for the better. Picking up The Power of Decision is the moment; and reading it is the decision that will change your life forever.

Regarding the HIV-infection rate of 14 percent in 2005, South Africa is battling with one of the most severe HIV/AIDS pandemics worldwide. Obviously, HIV/AIDS programs have had only scarce effects on the growing prevalence rate. The strategies of the national and international health-promotion seem to lack the recognition of cultural preconditions of the people. The socio-cultural upbringing of an individual with all its morale and normative codex is channelling situations of socializing with other people, such as friendships and partnerships are. The book is based on research data gathered during several field stays in a South African township. After giving a brief introduction into the cultural understanding of sickness and healing the author puts her main focus on the vulnerability of the women to the pandemic with reference to gender power relations. Besides, she identifies the invisibility of the actual outspread of the virus as the main source of stagnation of the Anti-HIV/AIDS battle. Finally, this book is supposed to highlight the inevitable need for cultural knowledge at the outset of any HIV/AIDS program of governmental and non-governmental organisations.

The truth is that each of us has the power of decision. The truth is that this power alone determines everything for each of us. Success, failure, happiness, sadness, spirituality, and distance from God, each is determined by a decision. A culmination of life experiences, tragedies and misfortunes, can lead to "the" decision which can be life changing. The purpose of this book is to awaken or remind anyone who would read it of the force that is within. Much has been written about power; however, ultimately the power that matters is the power we have to decide, the Power of Decision. The author's experiences as a student, athlete, trial attorney, politician, family man, and as a writer of books on the law, prayer, golf, politics, basketball, and a lexicon culminate in this book of personal philosophy. A book changed his life. Through this book he attempts to do the same for others. This careful mixture of personal insight, with the words of the profound personages of history, will spark the powerful realization that it is we who have what it takes to control our destinies. Lincoln, Einstein, Ghandi, St. Paul, Newton, Washington, Bismark, Galileo and Napoleon understood this power. They used it for good and evil. You can use it for good or evil. Threaded throughout are the precepts of creation, all of which are the building blocks of this author's convincing argument for inner strength and power. You can choose to succeed and to be joyful in all things. Finally, this author of over 3.5 million words provides to the reader his inseparable conclusions for God as shown by experiences and science.

Wiley's new Handbook of Decision Making is a vital reference text for all students and professionals of management, organization and decision making. The handbook offers a wide range of theoretical and empirical approaches to the understanding of organizational and strategic decisions. Contributors are internationally known experts drawn from North America, Canada and Europe who have spent many years in the study of decision making, and decision making relevant topics. We believe the handbook will become a tour de force in the understanding decision making, offering a wide variety of perspectives, topics, and summative understanding of the field. Chapters in the Handbook were prepared by the leading experts in their field and include cutting edge empirical, theoretical, and review chapters. The chapters bring together for the first time a critical mass of writing on decision making as an organizational and research activity. The Editors are two of the leading international experts in decision making and contribute to the Handbook with five original Chapters that offer an appraisal of the field and suggestions for research, as well as the current status of decision making practice and suggestion for improvement.

Democracy, Freedom and Coercion

A Law and Economics Approach

Democracy, Freedom and Coercion is a welcome addition to the public choice literature. It steps outside of the often used contractarian perspective and recognizes that all governments are ultimately based on coercion. . . the volume s chapters make important contributions that should be of interest to public choice scholars engaged in this research program. Benjamin Powell, Public Choice The big picture here is the tension between coercion and freedom within democracy. Each essay offers a view of this big picture through a different lens: empirical, theoretical, comparative, etc.; and also offers a different focus: on the conceptualisation and measurement of power, the legitimacy of economic democracy, the identification of the developing pattern of democracy, the impact of political violence etc. But the essays combine well so that together they illuminate the big picture from a variety of perspectives. Thought provoking and challenging an excellent read for anyone interested in the more detailed analysis of the issues that make up the big picture. Alan Hamlin, University of Manchester, UK So much of the academic analysis of democracy focuses on agreement and ignores the fact that all government action ultimately is backed by coercion. This volume offers a thoughtful examination of the inherent tensions between liberty and coercion that are an inevitable part of democratic government. Randall G. Holcombe, Florida State University, US States need to be strong in order to enforce private property rights; yet, this very strength can cause problems as representatives of the state can misuse it for their individual goals. This dilemma of the strong state has been occupying political philosophers for centuries. In this volume, to which economists but also political scientists have contributed, a number of new and unexpected variations on the topic are explored. This makes the volume an exciting read. Stefan Voigt, University of Marburg, Germany The contribution covers the niche between law and economics and the political theory of the state and its constitution. Now we can integrate traditional political theory into our doctoral seminars in law and economics a long overdue step ahead. Jürgen G. Backhaus, Erfurt University, Germany The essence of democratic power lies in the capacity to protect individual freedom while organizing the necessary coercion associated with any form of government. Yet, as the authors of this book maintain, developing coercion in order to protect freedom, and containing coercion in order to further protect freedom, is an arduous task, and one that faces any democratic Leviathan. The aim of this book is to explore this paradox and to analyse the intricate balance of freedom and coercion in developing states. In so doing it considers the legal and institutional conditions under which coercion and violence are admitted and/or permitted, and how these conditions should be organized in order to preserve and develop freedom as far as possible. Democracy, Freedom and Coercion comprehensively covers both private and public law, both applied and theoretical issues, and will therefore be of great interest to students studying law and economics. It will also serve as a reference tool to those academics in the field of legal competition, especially from the perspective of European issues.
