Do you pray? A recent poll asked this question of a broad sampling of Americans. Most (some 78%) answered "yes". These included both those who attend some form of worship service regularly and those who do not. Are your prayers answered? Again, the poll revealed that most people who pray do find that at least some of their prayers are answered. When we look at the usual gauges of our culture-TV, movies, newspapers, and magazines-we would hardly expect these findings. The secular influences that surround us seem much more the norm than does the head bowed in prayer. Certainly devotees of practically all major religions are encouraged to pray. But finding that large numbers of people actually do so is both surprising and comforting. Are you comfortable with the way you pray? The Gallup poll did not address this question. Many people feel inadequate in their efforts to communicate with God. For some, this inadequacy has led them to abandon the practice entirely. Others persist, knowing all the while that their prayer life could be much better. If you are in either of these groups, this book is addressed to you. I certainly do not know all the answers to an effective prayer life, and make no pretense to even be an expert in the field. But I have sought for years to better understand prayer, to raise my prayers above the common, everyday levels. In this book I will share some things I have learned, and perhaps one or two of these will resonate within you and aid you in your search. If so, I will have succeeded.
The theory of finite fields, whose origins can be traced back to the works of Gauss and Galois, has played a part in various branches of mathematics, in recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in finite fields, and this is partly due to important applications in coding theory and cryptography. Applications of Finite Fields introduces some of these recent developments.
A Beginner's Guide to Lifting Depression offers two approaches which you are unlikely to find elsewhere. Doctors aren't taught hemorheology, the physical properties of blood. But most chronic disorders, including depression, are characterised by blood flow problems, and there are relatively simple and available supplements and medical treatments which can improve blood flow and lift mood. Your counsellor or psychotherapist is very likely to offer you CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), which is widely used and very popular. But it only touches the surface. That inner critical voice - CBT tells you not to believe it. NLP teaches you how to control it. (Why argue with a radio - change the channel, or turn it off!) This Beginner's Guide includes two interwoven strands of information and suggestions: Les Simpson's thorough and systematic study of depression, in particular the evidence for blood flow problems and treatments which can address these; and Nancy Blake's insights and practical techniques based on years of using NLP to help depressed clients 'get their lives back.' Depression may tell you otherwise, but you deserve to enjoy your life. We hope we can help.
