Book Summary: MORE THAN HALF A MILLION COPIES SOLD: Learn the simple techniques you'll need to approach your biggest challenges with confidence. Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge and immediately wished for a do over? Maybe after a job interview, a performance, or a difficult conversation? The very moments that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead cause us to feel phony and powerless. Too often we approach our lives' biggest hurdles with dread, execute them with anxiety, and leave them with regret. By accessing our personal power, we can achieve "presence," the state in which we stop worrying about the impression we're making on others and instead adjust the impression we've been making on ourselves. As Harvard professor Amy Cuddy's revolutionary book reveals, we don't need to embark on a grand spiritual quest or complete an inner transformation to harness the power of presence. Instead, we need to nudge ourselves, moment by moment, by tweaking our body language, behavior, and mind-set in our day-to-day lives. Amy Cuddy has galvanized tens of millions of viewers around the world with her TED talk about "power poses." Now she presents the enthralling science underlying these and many other fascinating body-mind effects, and teaches us how to use simple techniques to liberate ourselves from fear in high-pressure moments, perform at our best, and connect with and empower others to do the same. Brilliantly researched, impassioned, and accessible, Presence is filled with stories of individuals who learned how to flourish during the stressful moments that once terrified them. Every reader will learn how to approach their biggest challenges with confidence instead of dread, and to leave them with satisfaction instead of regret. "Presence feels at once concrete and inspiring, simple but ambitious — above all, truly powerful." —New York Times Book Review

Book Summary: The philosophy of "presence" seeks to challenge current understandings of meaning and understanding. One can trace its origins back to Vico, Dilthey, and Heidegger, though its more immediate exponents include Jean-Luc Nancy, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, and such contemporary philosophers of history as Frank Ankersmit and Eelco Runia. The theoretical paradigm of presence conveys how the past is literally with us in the present in significant and material ways: Things we cannot touch nonetheless touch us. This makes presence a post-linguistic or post-discursive theory that challenges current understandings of "meaning" and "interpretation." Presence provides an overview of the concept and surveys both its weaknesses and its possible uses. In this book, Ethan Kleinberg and Ranjan Ghosh bring together an interdisciplinary group of contributors to explore the possibilities and limitations of presence from a variety of perspectives—history, sociology, literature, cultural theory, media studies, photography, memory, and political theory. The book features critical engagements with the presence paradigm within intellectual history, literary criticism, and the philosophy of history. In three original case studies, presence illuminates the relationships among photography, the past, memory, and the Other. What these diverse but overlapping essays have in common is a shared commitment to investigate the attempt to reconnect meaning with something "real" and to push the paradigm of presence beyond its current uses. The volume is thus an important intervention in the most fundamental debates within the humanities today.

Book Summary: Presence in Play: A Critique of Theories of Presence in the Theatre is the first comprehensive survey and analysis of theatrical presence to be published. Theatre as an art form has often been associated with notions of presence. The ‘live’ immediacy of the actor, the unmediated unfolding of dramatic action and the ‘energy’ generated through an actor-audience relationship are among the ideas frequently used to explain theatrical experience – and all are underpinned by some understanding of ‘presence.’ Precisely what is meant by presence in the theatre is part of what Presence in Play sets out to explain. While this work is rooted in twentieth century theatre and performance since modernism, the author draws on a range of historical and theoretical material. Encompassing ideas from semiotics and phenomenology, Presence in Play puts forward a framework for thinking about presence in theatre, enriched by poststructuralist theory, forcefully arguing in favour of ‘presence’ as a key concept for theatre studies today.

Book Summary: Executive presence matters. When 400 CEOs were asked how they choose next-level leaders, 89% of them said they looked for one critical trait-executive presence. This quality is crucial for professional success. In Executive Presence, Joel Garfinkle shows you how to step into your power, convey confidence, and lead with conviction. As you rise in your organization, your executive presence must keep pace with your growth. The higher the stakes, the more you need that power and presence. Using extensive original research gleaned from studying executive presence for more than 15 years, Joel has uncovered the 9 essential qualities of executive presence. His 3x3 Executive Presence Model doesn't just explain executive presence for the modern leader-it walks you step by step through exercises and strategies for cultivating each essential element. Methodically explaining how to master each one, he equips you with a personalized plan for growth, demystifies what executive presence is, and debunks misconceptions that hold you back. This book provides the blueprint for how to master 3 key executive presence domains. 1. Radiate gravitas. 2. Act with authority. 3. Express yourself fully. In Executive Presence, you'll learn how to: - Radiate the commanding, self-assured presence of a high-level leader. - Bring power, conviction, and a strong point of view to your presentations. - Move from passivity and self-doubt to self-assurance and bold decision-making. - Exude a professional magnetism that influences others at every level. - Cultivate and leverage charisma in all your interactions. - Communicate in a clear, crisp, and concise way. Maybe you've come across the term "executive presence" in HBR, but you couldn't adequately define it-let alone begin to grow it. This book will change that. As you delve into the lessons from Executive Presence, you'll join top-ranking organizational leaders who know how to influence others and drive extraordinary results. Whether you're a rising star or CEO, Executive Presence will guide you in leading a high-performing team. Moving from passivity and self-doubt to self-assurance and bold decision-making, you'll become the high-impact leader who propels your organization forward. Executive Presence is for women, people of color, and other employees from marginalized groups who are too often underappreciated, which causes companies to miss out on their full range of talent. By cultivating executive presence, women and any overlooked employees can smash through the glass ceiling and gain the recognition they deserve. If you're in one of these demographics, growing your executive presence will allow you to leap over the barriers you may encounter in your career. What's the key differentiator between this Executive Presence book and its competitors (Sylvia Ann Hewlett's Executive Presence: The Missing Link Between Merit and Success, Paul Aldo's Understanding Executive Presence, Debra A. Benton's Executive Presence for the Modern Leader, and Harrison Monarth's Executive Presence, Second Edition)? The 3x3 Executive Presence Model provides a clear, structured blueprint for developing the most important facets of executive presence. Learn about the 3 domains - gravitas, authority, and expression - that act as the foundational pillars holding up the 9 executive presence competencies.

Book Summary: John Colwell presents a robust sacramental theology for Protestant churches. He maintains that a doctrine of the Trinity leads us to conceive of God's gracious engagement with his creation as one that is mediated through that creation. And this lies at the foundation for an understanding of the sacraments. Colwell further argues that the Church and Scripture confer context, definition, and validity on all other sacramental events. The final section reconsiders the seven Sacraments of the Catholic tradition in the light of the understanding of sacramentality developed earlier in the book: baptism, confirmation, the Lord's Supper, cleansing, healing, ministry, and marriage. Colwell discusses the Sacraments from an evangelical perspective but with a committed ecumenical intent.
