Books in the psychology nonfiction genre are about the applied discipline that involves the scientific study of mental function and behaviors. The books in this genre deal with the science of understanding individuals’ mind functions in an attempt to benefit society. They attempt to tackle the understanding of the inner mind and apply treatments to improve roles of social, behavioral, and cognitive health.
Our mind is our greatest weapon, but that isn’t to say that we always know how to use it effectively. Much to the contrary: in the vast majority of cases, so much of its potential remains untapped. Or, even worse, we can turn it against ourselves, using it to our own detriment. Wouldn’t it be great if we could change this regrettable state of affairs? Well, as it happens, we can!
Most of our lives depend on our relationships. And whether they’re of a professional or personal nature, our relationships support and connect us. But how does that fact relate to networking, a term we so often see in the modern business world?
“A person who has not been completely alienated, who has remained sensitive and able to feel, who has not lost the sense of dignity, who is not yet "for sale", who can still suffer over the suffering of others, who has not acquired fully the having mode of existence - briefly, a person who has remained a person and not become a thing - cannot help feeling lonely, powerless, isolated in present-day society. He cannot help doubting himself and his own convictions, if not his sanity. He cannot help suffering, even though he can experience moments of joy and clarity that are absent in the life of his "normal" contemporaries. Not rarely will he suffer from neurosis that results from the situation of a sane man living in an insane society, rather than that of the more conventional neurosis of a sick man trying to adapt himself to a sick society. In the process of going further in his analysis, i.e. of growing to greater independence and productivity,his neurotic symptoms will cure themselves. ” ― Erich Fromm
