"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."---Randy Pausch A lot of professors give talks titled "The Last Lecture." Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they speak, audiences can't help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy? When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave--"Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have...and you may find one day that you have less than you think"). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living. In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humor, inspiration and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.

A remarkably frank, deeply moving, and inspiring memoir by Jai Pausch, whose husband, Randy, wrote the bestseller The Last Lecture while battling pancreatic cancer. "Jai is such a giver that she often forgets to take care of herself," Randy Pausch wrote about his wife. "Jai knows that she’ll have to give herself permission to make herself a priority." In Dream New Dreams, Jai Pausch shares her own story for the first time: her emotional journey from wife and mother to full-time caregiver, shuttling between her three young children and Randy’s bedside as he sought treatment far from home; and then to widow and single parent, fighting to preserve a sense of stability for her family, while coping with her own grief and the challenges of running a household without a partner. Jai paints a vivid, honest portrait of a vital, challenging relationship between two strong people who faced a grim prognosis and the self-sacrificing decisions it often required. As she faced life without the husband she called her “magic man,” Jai learned to make herself a priority to create a new life of hope and happiness—as she puts it, to “feel a spark of my own magic beginning to flicker.” Dream New Dreams is a powerful story of grief, healing, and newfound independence. With advice artfully woven into an intimate, beautifully written narrative, Jai’s story will inspire not only the legions of readers who made The Last Lecture a bestseller, but also those who are embarking on a journey of loss and renewal themselves.

A 2003 Templeton Foundation Book of Distinction! All of us have suffered painful emotional and relational hurts. God calls us to forgive those who have hurt us, but that's often easier said than done. We don't usually know how to forgive others, nor are we always sure if we have truly forgiven them. Psychologist and counselor Everett L. Worthington Jr., the leading Christian researcher on forgiveness, says that forgiving is a gift we give to others. When we offer forgiveness to others as an altruistic gift, it is more effective than when we forgive only for our own benefit in an effort to "get over" the hurt. True forgiveness is accomplished through a careful process of understanding both the offense and the offender and taking active steps to forgiveness. In this insightful and practical book, Worthington provides a wealth of clinically proven tools and exercises for moving toward forgiveness. Worthington's expertise comes not only from years of scientific research but also from the experience of the brutal murder of his own mother. His convictions were put to the test as he worked through his conflicting emotions and rage toward the murderer. He found that the principles of Christian forgiveness enabled him to forgive even his mother's killer. While forgiveness is something that we can do on our own, reconciliation involves another party. Worthington brings both themes together and shows how we can move beyond forgiveness and cross the bridge to reconciliation. This book, previously published as Five Steps to Forgiveness, has been fully revised to make clear the scriptural foundations of Christian forgiveness. Biblical, authoritative and pastorally sound, this guide will be of help to anyone who wants to find the freedom of forgiveness.

Wo bitte geht’s zum Glück? - Ein kulturgeschichtlicher Streifzug Immerhin 24 Prozent der Deutschen, so eine vom SPIEGEL in Auftrag gegebene Umfrage, halten ihr gegenwärtiges Leben für sehr glücklich. Aber was ist überhaupt Glück? Und ist, wer Glück hat, auch glücklich? Ist Glück schicksalhaft? Sinnfragen wie diese werden immer häufiger gestellt, seit die großen Gesellschaftsentwürfe verblasst sind. Mathias Schreiber zeigt, welche Antworten Philosophie, Religion und Psychologie geben und was wir selbst tun können, um diesem Lebensziel ein Stück näher zu kommen. Was ist Glück? Es ist die Frage aller Fragen, wenn wir überlegen, was das Leben letztlich gelingen lässt. Und sie treibt fast jeden von uns um. Aber eine Antwort darauf ist alles andere als einfach. Mathias Schreiber macht sich auf die Suche nach dem Glück und begegnet über Jahrhunderte und verschiedene Kulturen hinweg einer Vielzahl von Glückssuchern und Glückszeugen: Anhand vieler Beispiele aus unserer Zeit erzählt er von den unterschiedlichen Glückserwartungen, von Glückserfahrungen und – manchmal trügerischen – Glücksverheißungen. Er stellt überlieferte philosophische Lehren und fernöstliche Weisheiten ebenso vor wie aktuelle esoterische Praktiken zur Lebenskunst. Ergänzt werden die verschiedenen Glückslehren um einen persönlichen Ausblick auf mögliches Lebensglück, zu dem auch ein bestimmter Blick auf den Tod gehört und nicht zuletzt die Einsicht: Das Glück muss uns auch einmal überfallen dürfen – selbst wenn wir nicht wissen, wie uns geschieht. • Ein philosophisch-kulturgeschichtlicher Blick auf das Glück • Gibt einen Überblick über die wichtigsten Glückslehren und Glücksbegriffe
