The greatest publishing company ever!

Our mission is to publish self-help books. But, like, actual books, that make you think, not just "feel-good" books that say "we can help". That is books that tell a story, ones you can learn from. Ones that make you question life's most questionable questions,  what it means to feel, why we feel that way, what makes us happy, or sad, ones that reveal what its like to be a real human. All this is in  an effort to get you to help yourself feel good, of course!

"Working" by Studs Terkel Working...Why do we do it? Why do we devote our lives to it? How can work be an extension of who you are? How can it fulfill your life? Many people go through life, working a job they don't want. Discover with "Working" how people miss this idea. Their interviews can help you learn from their mistakes in order to better yourself and avoid the same problems they faced. This book allows you to see real experiences by real, ordinary people, who each have their own story to tell. And, perhaps, you can choose a career that reflects who you are, an outward manifestation of your inward self. As Eric Nesterenk, one of the workers interviewed, put it "Many of us are looking for some kind of role to play, it's a way of life". Your work should be a mini-you! Millions of readers are already learning from this great book! "This book showed me that it's ok to want more from your job!" ~ Twilight Sparkle

"Age of Empathy" by Frans de Waal Why should we care? Why should we show compassion? Survival of the fittest, right? Wrong! "None of this is keeping with the old way", as de Waal puts it. Cooperation...It's only natural! It has been thought that life is merely about survival of the most fit, even for humans. However, with the "Age of Empathy", Frans de Waal details how it is natural for humans to behave in ways that exemplify cooperation, teamwork, and compassion. De Waal outlines how, despite how it may seem at times, humans are actually compassionate and cooperative. It's not just an idea, it's biology! Unlike other books that often depict humans as if they are in a constant, malicious struggle of life and death with one another, de Waal shows, with SCIENCE, that this is just not true!

"The Histories" ~ Herodotus How Balanced is balance? It's not always straightforward. The tides can change at any moment. This book will help you discover how people find their roles and fit into them, and the risks there are if you stray to far from them. It will also help you realize that, sometimes, in life, there may not be any stability, and how you will have to be prepared for the good times, as well as the bad. "Human happiness never remains long in the same place". Unlike other books, Herodotus's "Histories" tells about different cultures and how they fit into the world and find happiness. We see how overarching this instability of human happiness can be through time and different cultures. "Yeah! I get to make a final appearence! But what should I say? I mean, I wrote the book, but I don't want to sound arrogant...hmmm...I know! I'll leave you with this final statement: Things change, therefore, never take anything or anyone for granted, enjoy everything while you can." ~ Herodotus
