From the author of the bestselling The Reason I Jump, an extraordinary self-portrait of life as a young adult with autism Naoki Higashida was only thirteen when he wrote The Reason I Jump, a revelatory account of autism from the inside by a nonverbal Japanese child, which became an international success. Now he shares his thoughts and experiences as a twenty-four-year-old man living each day with severe autism. In short, powerful chapters, Higashida explores school memories, family relationships, the exhilaration of travel, and the difficulties of speech. He also allows readers to experience profound moments we take for granted, like the thought-steps necessary for him to register that it’s raining outside. Acutely aware of how strange his behavior can appear to others, he aims throughout to foster a better understanding of autism and to encourage society to see people with disabilities as people, not as problems. With an introduction by bestselling novelist David Mitchell, Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8 also includes a dreamlike short story Higashida wrote especially for this edition. Both moving and of practical use, this book opens a window into the mind of an inspiring young man who meets every challenge with tenacity and good humor. However often he falls down, he always gets back up. Praise for Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8 “[Naoki Higashida’s] success as a writer now transcends his diagnosis. . . . His relative isolation—with words as his primary connection to the outside world—has allowed him to fully develop the powers of observation that are necessary for good writing, and he has developed rich, deep perspectives on ideas that many take for granted. . . . The diversity of Higashida’s writing, in both subject and style, fits together like a jigsaw puzzle of life put in place with humor and thoughtfulness.”—The Japan Times “Profound insights about what the struggle of living with autism is really like . . . Once again, the invitation to step inside Higashida’s mind is irresistible.”—London Evening Standard “Naoki Higashida’s lyrical and heartfelt account of his condition is a gift to anyone involved with the same challenges. . . . Higashida shows a delicate regard for the difficulties his condition creates . . . and is adept at explaining his experiences in language that makes sense to neurotypicals.”—The Guardian “Wise and witty, [Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8] offers a second insider’s insight into the mysteries of non-verbal autism—but this time from the vantage point of a young adult. . . . Moving . . . Higashida’s reflections are at times refreshingly hard-nosed [and] his self-awareness is uplifting.”—Financial Times “[Naoki Higashida’s] thoughtful, syntactically complex writing puts the lie to the already dubious characterization of such individuals as ‘low-functioning.’”—Toronto Star

Iris Grace is a beautiful little girl who, from a very young age, barely communicated, avoided social interaction with other people, and rarely smiled. From both before her diagnosis of autism and after, she seemed trapped in her own world, unable to connect with those around her. One day, her mother brought home a Maine Coon kitten for Iris, even though cats aren’t typically thought of as therapy pets. Thula, named after one of Iris’s favorite African lullabies and meaning “peace” in Zulu, immediately bonded with Iris. Thula knew right away how to assuage Iris when she became overstimulated; when to intervene when Iris became overwhelmed; and how to provide distraction when Iris started heading toward a meltdown. Whether exploring, playing, sleeping, or taking a bath with Iris or accompanying the family on a bike ride, Thula became so much more than a therapy cat. With Thula’s safe companionship, Iris began to talk and interact with her family. This heartwarming story is illustrated with sixty of Iris’s gorgeous impressionistic paintings, works of art that have allowed her to express herself since the age of three. A gifted artist, Iris sees the natural world in a profoundly vivid and visceral way. With Thula by her side, she’ll sit and paint for hours, and the results are stunning. Inspiring and touching, Iris Grace follows the struggles and triumphs of a family—and a miracle cat—as they learn to connect with an amazing child.

Ciascun genitore desidera il meglio per il proprio figlio ed essere per lui la madre perfetta, il padre perfetto. È scontato e banale, ma nella vita di tutti i giorni — quella in cui i bambini piangono, si arrabbiano, strillano come ossessi, desiderano cose contrarie alla sopravvivenza — le cose si fanno più complicate... e invece di goderci la straordinaria avventura di essere genitore, tendiamo a vivere ogni reazione del bambino come un continuo test sulle nostre capacità. Il linguaggio del cuore, ispirato alla psicoterapia cognitivo-comportamentale, e in particolare alla Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, è un prezioso manuale di istruzioni, consigli, suggerimenti e strategie per aiutare mamme, papà, nonni e educatori a: • Crescere un figlio senza proteggerlo dalle emozioni, anche dolorose, insegnandogli così a tollerare le frustrazioni e le difficoltà fisiologiche della vita • Ascoltare le sue sensazioni, senza reprimerle, inibirle o prevenirle • Accettare i suoi vissuti rinunciando a cercare di «sterilizzarli» come si fa con il biberon per difenderlo dai germi. Grazie anche ai numerosi esempi tratti dall’esperienza clinica e personale dell’autrice, in cui sarà facile immedesimarsi e riconoscere la propria esperienza, i genitori saranno aiutati a essere più consapevoli dei propri valori, ovvero di cosa davvero considerano importante trasmettere ai propri figli, e a impegnarsi a riconoscere il diritto dei bambini alle loro emozioni. Avvertenze per le mamme e i papà: 1. Questo non è un libro che si propone di essere un libro di verità o di istruzioni generali su come maneggiare e crescere figli felici. Quindi, niente di ciò che si afferma qui può essere elevato a legge generale da rispettare sempre, salvo finire nell’inferno delle mamme e dei papà. 2. Nel leggere questo libro, potresti sentirti in alcuni momenti in colpa o inadeguato come genitore o arrabbiato con te stesso o… con chi scrive! Non ti preoccupare e non lanciare subito via il libro dalla finestra. Se lo stai leggendo o, in generale, se nonostante la stanchezza e la fatica leggi qualcosa di utile per il tuo bimbo, sei sicuramente un genitore attento al benessere del proprio figlio. E questa è già una condizione centrale perché tu lo cresca bene e felice. 3. Se ti senti inadeguata/o o fai fatica ad accettare le emozioni che provi nel pensare alle difficoltà che incontri nell’educare il tuo bimbo, ricordati che devi prima di tutto accettare i tuoi pensieri e le tue emozioni dolorose, le tue paure e le tue difficoltà; solo dopo potrai accettare pienamente tuo figlio.

Robert J. Sawyer's award-winning science fiction has garnered both popular and critical acclaim. The New York Times Book Review called Frameshift "filled to bursting with ideas, characters and incidents". His novels are fixtures on the Hugo and Nebula ballots. Sawyer now brings us Flashforward, the story of a world-shattering discovery. In pursuit of an elusive nuclear particle, an experiment goes incredibly awry, and, for a few moments, the consciousness of the entire human race is thrown ahead by about twenty years. As the implications truly hit home, the pressure to repeat the experiment builds. Everyone wants a glimpse of their future, a chance to flashforward and see their successes ... or learn how to avoid their failures. Winner of the Aurora Award and the basis for the hit ABC television series. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Le forze che cambieranno le nostre vite e il nostro modo di lavorare nei prossimi anni sono cinque: tecnologia, globalizzazione, demografia e longevità, energia. La tecnologia semplifica il mondo, ma consuma tutto il nostro tempo. La globalizzazione ci permette di lavorare ovunque, ma di dover competere con persone provenienti da ogni luogo del mondo. Contro le forze della frammentazione, dell'isolamento e dell'esclusione, l'autrice propone un nuovo futuro per il lavoro, fatto di condivisione della creatività, micro imprenditorialità e impegno sociale. Con questo libro Lynda Gratton ci suggerisce che, comunque vada, questi elementi possono essere analizzati per prepararsi al meglio all'inesorabile trasformazione del lavoro.

From its beginnings, the Church has presented itself as a human phenomenon that carries the divine within it. As a social fact, its reality given form by men and women, the Church has always affirmed that its existence surpasses the human reality of its components and that it stands as the continuation of the event of Christ's entry into human history. Why the Church?, the final volume in McGill-Queen's University Press's trilogy of Luigi Giussani's writings, explores the Church's definition of itself as both human and divine and evaluates the truth of this claim.

A gripping literary thriller and smash bestseller that has taken Italy, France, Germany and the UK by storm. Six severed arms are discovered, arranged in a mysterious circle and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and eighteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. Worse still, the girls' bodies, alive or dead, are nowhere to be found. Lead investigators Mila Vasquez, a celebrated profiler, and Goran Gavila, an eerily prescient criminologist, dive into the case. They're confident they've got the right suspect in their sights until they discover no link between him and any of the kidnappings except the first. The evidence in the case of the second missing child points in a vastly different direction, creating more questions than it answers. Vasquez and Gavila begin to wonder if they've been brought in to take the fall in a near-hopeless case. Is it all coincidence? Or is a copycat criminal at work? Obsessed with a case that becomes more tangled and intense as they unravel the layers of evil, Gavila and Vasquez find that their lives are increasingly in each other's hands. THE WHISPERER, as sensational a bestseller in Europe as the Stieg Larsson novels, is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent thriller that is also utterly unputdownable.
