While to-do lists and failed resolutions discourage people from believing that change is possible, Binder-Man (in full cape and with four-color graphics!) proves that change really isn't all that difficult and that sometimes it begins with just a simple stepâor a series of missteps. Binder-Man was born over twenty years ago when the multimillion dollar Change Companies was just a start-up, developing their signature brand of interactive journals. In those long early days, the staff spent hours on end filling orders by monotonously placing pages into three-ring binders. Hoping to bring much-needed comic relief to his team, company owner Don Kuhl morphed into the eccentric character of Binder-Man, complete with flowing cape and red earmuffs. The spirit of Binder-Man was contagious and The Change Companies thrived, selling more than 20 million journals worldwide. Based on his years igniting change in others, Kuhl shares brief, engaging narratives on a variety of eclectic topicsâthe significance of navel-gazing, leaking toilets, tattooed strangers, and a frog named Apples. With humor, honesty, and the essential principles of behavior change, Kuhl invites readers on a highly pictorial and enlightening adventure, inspiring them to make emotional, spiritual, and physical changes in their own lives, and opening a great new world of opportunity and joy.

Insult arsenal -- Words like daggers -- Subtle digs -- Bludgeoned with praise -- Benign insults -- Insult psychology -- World of hurt -- Who gets hurt? -- Why we insult -- Dealing with insults -- Personal responses to insults -- Societal responses to insults -- Insults, the inner game -- Insights.
William Irvine undertakes a wide-ranging investigation of insults, their history, the role they play in social relationships, and the science behind them, examining not just memorable zingers, such as Elizabeth Bowen's description of Aldous Huxley as "The stupid person's idea of a clever person," but subtle insults as well, such as when someone insults us by reporting the insulting things others have said about us: "I never read bad reviews about myself," wrote entertainer Oscar Levant, "because my best friends invariably tell me about them." Irvine also considers the role insults play in our society: they can be used to cement relations, as when a woman playfully teases her husband, or to enforce a social hierarchy, as when a boss publicly berates an employee. He goes on to investigate the many ways society has tried to deal with insults-by adopting codes of politeness, for example, and outlawing hate speech-but concludes that the best way to deal with insults is to immunize ourselves against them: We need to transform ourselves in the manner recommended by Stoic philosophers. We should, more precisely, become insult pacifists, trying hard not to insult others and laughing off their attempts to insult us.
