Don T Get Too Comfortable

A bitingly funny grand tour of our culture of excess from an award-winning humorist. Whether David Rakoff is contrasting the elegance of one of the last flights of the supersonic Concorde with the good-times-and-chicken-wings populism of Hooters Air; working as a cabana boy at a South Beach hotel; or traveling to a private island off the coast of Belize to watch a soft-core video shoot—where he is provided with his very own personal manservant—rarely have greed, vanity, selfishness, and vapidity been so mercilessly skewered. Somewhere along the line, our healthy self-regard has exploded into obliterating narcissism; our manic getting and spending have now become celebrated as moral virtues. Simultaneously a Wildean satire and a plea for a little human decency, Don’t Get Too Comfortable shows that far from being bobos in paradise, we’re in a special circle of gilded-age hell. This edition includes an excerpt from David Rakoff's Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish.

Zan And The Mythical Art Of Miz Management

Author : James Alden
ISBN : 9781770979635
Genre : Humor
File Size : 56.56 MB

The suggestions on management behaviour outlined in this book are in support of the principles of Miz-Management and the theoretical methodology for creating an ideal state of Mizery in the workplace. Miz is simply a contraction of the word miserable and therefore, Miz-Management means miserable management for Mizzies (masochists). While the purpose of this book remains vague, it attempts to outline largely unproven methodologies, supported by unimaginative examples of Miz-Management behaviour, specifically for those who want to be perceived as trying to improve their management skills, but who really want to be anything but successful. With the best of intentions to simply fill the void for a Miz-Management behaviour guide, unfortunately it has also been inadvertently adopted by some masochistically challenged managers for Miz-Use as an inverse guide to impede the advancement of Miz-Management in the workplace. Fortunately this counter culture will not succeed because the Miz-Force is strong.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 1:3–4 that God is the “Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.” Is that really true? If God really does love me, why did He allow me to go through such horrible times of distress and pain? Why couldn’t I have a “normal” life just like everyone else? After all, I wasn’t really that bad of a person, was I? Hadn’t I worked hard to turn my life around? Here my husband and I were now attending a good, Bible-teaching church, and I was learning more about Jesus and His love for me every day. We were finally ready to start a family after being married for ten years—I felt in my heart that I was now ready to become a mom. But then everything started to fall apart. This book is to let you know that no matter what you are facing, God, our Heavenly Father, is always right beside us, and when we keep our eyes on Him and trust Him, He will see to it that we are brought to a place where life can make sense. Was this story something that I dreamed about as a little girl? Far from it! Yet I can honestly say that I am more at peace today than I have ever been in my life. The God of all comfort is always right here, just waiting for me to draw near to Him, and He is waiting for you as well.

His mother abandoned him. His drug-dealing dad landed him in the middle of a gunfight. After entering the foster care system, he fell through the cracks. He was rejected by everyone, known by no one... Born to a teenage mother whose hopes and dreams for her son were shattered by her own drug addiction, author Shane Salter was thrust into parenting his younger brother at the tender age of four. His first look at the world was through a broken windowpane into an alley leading nowhere. When his mother walked out and left him, he kept it together and took care of his brother until they found foster care, a system as threatening to a child as any dark alley in New York, Miami, Chicago, Detroit, or Los Angeles. He sought what his mother was unable to give: nurturing, guidance, and the opportunity to be a child. With all odds against him, he survived and emerged more determined than ever to succeed.

You cannot know Robert Jackson very long before you are aware of his passion for Jesus. It is this passion for Jesus that provides the desire that he has for mentoring men to become all they can be for Jesus. Robert's prior books asked the question, “Where is the man?” He begins to open up Joseph's life to declare in this book, HERE'S THE MAN! No one wants to be viewed as a failure. You were created to dream and given gifts to make that dream happen. As God declares His will for our lives we begin to make a plan to achieve or reach for that will. However, unplanned disruptions seem to build roadblocks to that destiny or the fulfillment of our dream. Are they roadblocks? Are these disruptions keeping us from God's will? We begin to question have we really heard from God? Did we miss something in what I thought was God's plan for me? In this book about Joseph, you will find principles that can help you to understand how God, the Father moves from declaring His will to taking us unto the plan of fulfilling that will. The important insights and illumination in this book from God's Word can alter our mindset, keep us from fighting the plan God has for us, and alter the circumstances of your life and bring a change that will positively impact you and your family. You will be challenged and changed as you see how God finally declares to Egypt and the world “HERE'S THE MAN”!
