It may hold us up temporarily, but sooner or later we re going to topple over. We need a third leg a Third Metric for defining success in order to live a healthy, productive, and meaningful life.In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritising the demands of a career and two daughters. Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging and giving, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplaces, and our lives.
Features updated material and a special foreword from Arianna for the UK audienceIt's not an exaggeration to say that the hard-working, average citizen on an average income is an endangered species and that the American Dream of a secure, comfortable standard of living has become outdated. The USA is in danger of becoming a Third World nation.The evidence is all around: its industrial base is vanishing, taking with it the kind of jobs that have formed the backbone of America's economy for more than a century; the education system is in shambles, making it harder for tomorrow's workforce to acquire the information and training it needs to land good twenty-first-century jobs; its infrastructure - roads, bridges, water, and electrical systems - is crumbling; its economic system has been reduced to recurring episodes of Corporations Gone Wild; and its political system is broken, in thrall to a small financial elite using the power of the chequebook to control both parties. And America's middle class, the driver of so much of the country's economic success and political stability, is rapidly disappearing, forcing this democracy to confront the fear that it is slipping as a nation - that its children and grandchildren will enjoy fewer opportunities and face a lower standard of living. It's the dark flipside of the American Dream - an American Nightmare of their own making.Arianna Huffington, editor in chief of the must-read Huffington Post, has her finger on the pulse of America and unflinchingly tracks the gradual demise of the nation as an industrial, political, and economic leader. In the vein of her fiery bestseller Pigs at the Trough, Third World America points fingers, names names, and details who's killing the American Dream. Calling on the can-do attitude that is part of America's DNA, Huffington shows precisely what needs to be done to stop the free fall and keep the country from turning into a Third World nation. Third World America is required reading for anyone who is disturbed by the United States' steady descent from twentieth-century superpower to backwater banana republic.

This landmark biography penetrates the barriers of legend to bring to full and intimate life a man whose burning passionsfor painting, women, and ideaswere matched by a compulsion to invent reality in his life no less than in his art. Here is the tragic story of a man who, from his teenage passion for a gypsy boy to the chilling bitterness and betrayals of his old age, was unable to love and was driven to dominate and humiliate the womenand menwho fell under his hypnotic spell.Drawing on a wealth of startling revelations, including the vivid memories of Picasso's daughter Maya and the heretofore untold recollections of Franoise Gilot, who shared his life for ten years and bore two of his children, the author has stripped bare the romantic myths to reveal, in all its volatile complexity, Picasso's lifelong struggle between his power to create and his compulsion to destroy.
For millions of people, the great soprano Maria Callas (1923-1977) remains the focus of such unparalleled fascination that there is still no higher praise for singers than "e;...the best since Callas."e; In this biography, Callas' career is brought brilliantly to life, from her transformation from a chubby, painfully shy girl into a magnificent, celebrated soprano, to her conflict with her larger-than-life image. Huffington makes this struggle, which was at the center of her life, also the center of the biography. Using a wealth of previously unpublished material and numerous first-hand interviews, Huffington documents Callas' interminable conflict with her mother, her deeply emotional relationship with her voice, the gradual unraveling of her first marriage, her passionate love affair with of Aristotle Onassis, her agony and humiliation at his leaving her, and her secret abortion.

Author, syndicated columnist, occasional actress, and businesswoman Ariana Huffington examines the ways in which fear affects the lives of women, and the steps anyone can take to conquer fear.Observing that her own teenage daughters were beginning to experience some of the same fears that had once burdened her -- How attractive am I? Do people like me? Do I dare speak up? -- Arianna Huffington was compelled to look at the subject and impact of fear. In stories drawn from her own experiences and with contributions from Nora Ephron, Diane Keaton and many others, she points toward the moments of extraordinary strength, courage, and resilience that result from confronting and overcoming fear.Her book shows us how to become bold from the inside out: from feeling comfortable in our own skin, to getting what we want in love and at work, to changing the world.
With her trademark passion, intelligence, and devastating wit, Huffington Post editor in chief Arianna Huffington tackles the issues that are crucial to this year's presidential election and, even more so, to the fate of the country.Huffington makes the case that America has been hijacked from within by a radical elementthe ';lunatic fringe' of the Right that has taken over the Republican Party. Despite holding views at odds with the majority of Americans, these zealots have given us an endless war in Iraq, a sputtering economy, a health care system on life support, a war on science and reason, and an immoral embrace of torture.But they haven't done it on their own: they have been enabled by a compliant media that act as if there is no such thing as truth and are more interested in cozying up to those in power than in holding them accountable, and by feckless Democrats who have allowed themselves to be intimidated into backing down again and again.Both a withering indictment and a hopeful call to arms, Right Is Wrong is an explosive, boldly incisive work that will help set the national agenda.
It's not an exaggeration to say that middle-class Americans are an endangered species and that the American Dream of a secure, comfortable standard of living has become as outdated as an Edsel with an eight-track player. That the United States of America is in danger of becoming a third world nation.The evidence is all around us:Our industrial base is vanishing, taking with it the kind of jobs that have formed the backbone of our economy for more than a century; our education system is in shambles, making it harder for tomorrow's workforce to acquire the information and training it needs to land good twenty-first century jobs; our infrastructureour roads, our bridges, our sewage and water, our transportation and electrical systemsis crumbling; our economic system has been reduced to recurring episodes of Corporations Gone Wild; our political system is broken, in thrall to a small financial elite using the power of the checkbook to control both parties.And America's middle class, the driver of so much of our economic success and political stability, is rapidly disappearing, forcing us to confront the fear that we are slipping as a nation that our children and grandchildren will enjoy fewer opportunities and face a lower standard of living than we did.It's the dark flipside of the American Dream an American Nightmare of our own making.

Wonderfully incendiary and right-headed . . .Huffington is mad as hell, and rightly so. EsquireThe scathing and insightful New York Times bestseller, now updated to include the current economic crisisPigs at the Trough is Arianna Huffingtons eerily prescient expos of the financial meltdownand the flagrant greed that triggered it. Once again, Huffington takes on the nexus of corporate highfliers, lobbyists, and Washington insiders who have created and zealously protected a culture of corruption in America. Hearkening back to the days of Enron and WorldCom, she draws a line connecting those accounting frauds to the much larger and more sophisticated corruption that drove the latest financial crisis.The list of new culprits is long, and in this updated version of Pigs at the Trough, Huffington calls them outincluding AIG, Citigroup, and Merrill Lynchand asks the probing questions of how things went so wrong and how we can rebuild our free market capitalist system on a sounder moral foundation.Wickedly amusing yet powerfully indicting, Pigs at the Trough will once again stir up heated discussion among Americans outraged by the bailout of corporate swine. With a passion for the truth and an eye for detail, Arianna Huffington reports on the hijacking of democracy. Read it and weepthen head for the barricades.Bill MoyersHuffington indicts with precision, verve, and sparkling wit. Barbara EhrenreichArianna Huffington makes an appealing and compelling argument for the repeal of human naturethat part of it that indulges savage, unconscionable, and despicable greed.

Powerful and enlightening. How to Overthrow the Government is an impassioned call to arms from one of America's sharpest and most independent commentators. In its pages Huffington breaks away from the party-line platitudes of Republicans and Democrats alike while challenging Amerians to rise up and take back their government. From the power of special interests to the ravages of the war on drugs, Huffington offers radical yet viable strategies for reclaiming our nation from the corporate and political powers that hold it hostage. For, as she argues, if We the People are to preserve and protect our more perfect union, we must stand up and fight for our country -- before it's too late.
Arianna Huffington er kendt for at have grundlagt og opbygget internetmediet Huffington Post, som hun nu er bestyrelsesformand for. Men i 2007 kollapsede hun og faldt om derhjemme på grund af overanstrengelse. Denne dramatiske hændelse fik hende til at stoppe op, genoverveje formålet med sin tilværelse – og skrive en bog om sine nye erkendelser.At leve – Arianna Huffingtons metode til succes: trivsel, visdom, forundring og gavmildhed (amerikansk: Thrive) er resultatet. Bogen har gået sin sejrsgang over hele den engelsksprogede verden, hvor den ved udgivelsen lå på bestsellerlisterne hos samtlige medier og boghandlere i månedsvis.Arianna Huffington, som er blevet kaldt en af verdens mest indflydelsesrige kvinder, blev af sit kollaps tvunget til at stoppe op – og erkendte, at hun ikke kunne fortsætte ad hverken samme spor eller i samme gear. Hun skriver selv, at den meget personlige bog handler om ”hvordan jeg på den hårde måde lærte at træde et skridt tilbage og undlade at være så fanget af mit travle liv, at jeg helt gik glip af selve livets mysterium.”Huffington gør i processen op med, at succes og penge er de eneste mål i livet. Mål, som hun tidligere styrede efter og vurderede højt. Hun kommer frem til fire nye pejlemærker: trivsel, visdom, forundring og gavmildhed. Og Arianna Huffington er en kvinde, der går all in. Hun ændrer sit liv.Bogen indeholder en lang række fine eksempler og fortællinger, der viser, hvordan Huffington og andre håndterer at forny pejlemærker og finde nye metoder og mål i livet – ligesom hun griber tilbage til de græske filosoffer (og sin græske baggrund) for at finde måder at efterleve de nye værdier på.
