For anyone who has ever stood at a crossroads or been at a pivotal moment in their lives, remember—you can always start over. • Have you ever achieved success at something and found it not as fulfilling as you hoped it would be? You're not alone. • What if our version or definition of success won't bring us the sense of fulfillment we think it will? • How do you define significance and how do we become significant? In Red Key Revolution, Jordan Kemper challenges you to reevaluate what it is you're after and why. During his pursuit of success, he found that significance is ultimately what our hearts desire. He unravels his story, including a decision he made as a teenage boy on behalf of a woman he would not meet for almost 20 years—his wife. That decision changed his perspective forever and ultimately led to the fruition of this revolution. We make decisions every day that will affect the people we meet tomorrow. Through a series of questions and action steps, Red Key Revolution will help you gain clarity on how to deliberately and intentionally pursue significance and success. Sacrifices are necessary for anything worthwhile, and when you sacrifice for what matters most, it's guaranteed to be worth it. Kemper's book redefines success in a way that leaves a legacy—the kind of success that will matter long after you're gone.

Since John Lennon composed Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds in early 1967, fans and music critics alike have argued over the meaning of the song. Is it about drugs? Is it just a lyrical response to a drawing given Lennon by his 4-year-old son Julian? Is there some deeper meaning? Professor Tim Kasser goes beyond speculative explanations by applying innovative psychological methods to the song's lyrics and music. He deeply analyzes the song's linguistic structure, its basic theme, and the way its words and music had been used by Lennon in earlier songs. As the findings accumulate, Kasser weaves them together with the facts of Lennon's life and established psychological theories to provide an integrative (and sometimes surprising) perspective on the psychological processes that led Lennon to write Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Kasser goes on to follow the unfolding of these personal dynamics in later Lennon songs like I am the Walrus, Yer Blues, and Working Class Hero. No other book has so closely examined this period of Lennon's life with such a sophisticated psychological approach. Kasser's methods and perspective point to the usefulness of scientific psychology for understanding why a particular person does a particular thing at a particular time, at the same time that they shed new light on this fascinating and controversial man.
