You only have one opportunity for so many things in life. Raising your children is one of them. This story examines the trend that is set in so many homes today and continues generation by generation, that of realizing after your child is grown that you really did not take full advantage of the time you had with them as children. This is a story of a father who is so consumed with work that he neglects his son. With some help from an unlikely source, the very one who set such an example for him; he must make the needed changes in his life before it is too late.
Trees are unmistakably crucial to the physical success and well-being of our planet. These giants of the plant kingdom allow and invite people to pass under their branches to share their essence and energy and wisdom in a completely selfless way. In my story an apple tree drops its apples beneath its branches, and they are TAKEN by the people who pass under to taste the sweet. The tree is not ready to surrender its self-worth to children snatching up her golden delicious apples without learning something about the human tree of children. The tree begins to question the general consequences between the adults and the children. The tree through discovery learns her true value. The tree represents Nature, and her apples are her precious gifts. The allegorical work shows that humankind is composed of many qualities like the many apples on the tree. Some apples are crisp, some are sweeter than others, and some are in conical shape. The children who pass under the trees branches possess different traits passed on by their parents. Among the different traits we should achieve in our daily lives include joy, truthfulness, appreciation of internal and external beauty, peace, harmony, etc. The tree discovers its self-worth when he understands The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree in nature and humankind. Basically, kids are like their parents, a chip off the old block. Nature (apple tree) and humankind become one in time and space.

Is the United States "the land of equal opportunity" or is the playing field tilted in favor of those whose parents are wealthy, well educated, and white? If family background is important in getting ahead, why? And if the processes that transmit economic status from parent to child are unfair, could public policy address the problem? Unequal Chances provides new answers to these questions by leading economists, sociologists, biologists, behavioral geneticists, and philosophers. New estimates show that intergenerational inequality in the United States is far greater than was previously thought. Moreover, while the inheritance of wealth and the better schooling typically enjoyed by the children of the well-to-do contribute to this process, these two standard explanations fail to explain the extent of intergenerational status transmission. The genetic inheritance of IQ is even less important. Instead, parent-offspring similarities in personality and behavior may play an important role. Race contributes to the process, and the intergenerational mobility patterns of African Americans and European Americans differ substantially. Following the editors' introduction are chapters by Greg Duncan, Ariel Kalil, Susan E. Mayer, Robin Tepper, and Monique R. Payne; Bhashkar Mazumder; David J. Harding, Christopher Jencks, Leonard M. Lopoo, and Susan E. Mayer; Anders Björklund, Markus Jäntti, and Gary Solon; Tom Hertz; John C. Loehlin; Melissa Osborne Groves; Marcus W. Feldman, Shuzhuo Li, Nan Li, Shripad Tuljapurkar, and Xiaoyi Jin; and Adam Swift.

Beinhocker has written this work in order to introduce a broad audience to what he believes is a revolutionary new paradigm in economics and its implications for our understanding of the creation of wealth. He describes how the growing field of complexity theory allows for evolutionary understanding of wealth creation, in which business designs co-evolve with the evolution of technologies and organizational innovations. In addition to giving his audience a tour of this field of complexity economics, he discusses its implications for real-world issues of business.

Joseph Heller's powerful, wonderfully funny, deeply moving novel is the story of David -- yes, King David -- but as you've never seen him before. You already know David as the legendary warrior king of Israel, husband of Bathsheba, and father of Solomon; now meet David as he really was: the cocky Jewish kid, the plagiarized poet, and the Jewish father. Listen as David tells his own story, a story both relentlessly ancient and surprisingly modern, about growing up and growing old, about men and women, and about man and God. It is quintessential Heller.

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is more than just a set of techniques for structuring psychotherapeutic treatment; it also offers a new, insightful, transdiagnostic approach to case conceptualization and to mental health in general. Learn to put this popular new psychotherapeutic model to work in your practice with this book, the first guide that explains how to do case conceptualization within an ACT framework. ACT in Practice offers an introduction to ACT, an overview of its impact, and a brief introduction to the six core processes of ACT treatment--the six points of the hexaflex model and its pathological alter ego, the so-called inflexahex. It describes how to accomplish case conceptualizations in general and offers précis of the literature that establish the importance and value of case conceptualization. This guide also offers possible alternative case conceptualization for cases from different therapeutic traditions, a great help to therapists who come from a more traditional CBT background. Exercises throughout help you to evaluate the information you have just learned so that you may effectively integrate ACT into your practice.
