Why do some people's efforts to improve their behavior succeed, while others' fail? Dr. John C. Norcross, the leading authority on the science of personal change, and his associates have spent over three decades and millions of research dollars answering that question. The result? CHANGEOLOGY: FIVE STEPS TO REALIZING YOUR GOALS AND RESOLUTIONS (plus 22 professional books and 300+ other publications). Backed by 30 years of scientific research, the five-step process outlined in Changeology tilts the odds of success in the self-changer's favor. Key to succeeding is knowing which actions to take during each step of the process.

In "Journey Interruped, A Family Without a Country in a World at War," Hildegarde Mahoney shares the fascinating story of her German-American family being stranded in Japan on the way to visit family in Germany at the onset of the war. Hillie was only 7 when the story begins, and 16 when she and her family finally returned to New York.
The details of their stay in Japan, and then later in Germany where they were repatriated after the war, paint a vivid picture of a unique time in history.
Join us this week on Writers' Voices to meet Hildegarde Mahoney and hear more about her fascinating story.
Of the three wide releases this week: Warcraft, Now you See Me 2 and The Conjuring 2, we most anticipated Warcraft. It's directed by (David Bowie's son) Duncan Jones, who's debut film Moon, starring Sam Rockwell was one of our faves of 2009. Alas, the curse of unsuccessful adaptations of video games to film continues. "Director Duncan Jones will live to fight another day. But you leave the mostly worthless Warcraft with just two words ringing in your ear: Game over." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
As with the spiritual documentary Gurukulam last week, we're excited about the filmosophical documentary: The Music Of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble. "From Morgan Neville, the director of the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom and the critically acclaimed Best of Enemies, the new film The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble tells the extraordinary story of the renowned international musical collective created by legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma. The documentary follows this group of diverse instrumentalists, vocalists, composers, arrangers, visual artists and storytellers as they explore the power of music to preserve tradition, shape cultural evolution and inspire hope." Watch the trailer and be inspired! "Morgan Neville's documentary is a joyous revelation, a group portrait of superb musicians from all over the world offering music as an emblem of what people can do in these fractious times when they live in concert with one another." - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
We'll talk about this and more on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions. "The clearest reason for music, for culture... is it gives us meaning. We started as an idea: A group of musicians getting together and seeing what might happen when strangers meet." - Yo-Yo Ma. "This was like the Manhattan Project of music. No one knew what was going to happen." "There's no east or west. There's just a globe." - The Music of Strangers
His First Solo Album in 23 Years
"Keith Richards' first solo album since 1992 opens like a fever dream, with the 71-year-old rock god croaking acoustic blues like Robert Johnson after burning down a half-ounce spliff." -- Rolling Stone
All hits, all the time... The first 18 songs are from a compilation cassette tape I made many years ago. Lots of fine 80's and early 90's music there, followed by seven more songs that run the gamut of all genres. I like to think of a playlist like this one as an old rocking chair full of stuffed animals of all shapes, sizes, and kinds, just happily co-existing together, and waitin' for a hug. The G Man
