Summary

In pop culture as much as in policy advocacy, the feminist movement has historically left infertile women out in the cold. This book traverses the chilly landscape of miscarriage, and the particular grief that accompanies the longing to make a family. Framed by her own desire for a child, journalist Alexandra Kimball brilliantly reveals the pain and loneliness of infertility, especially as a lifelong feminist. Her experience of online infertility support groups -- where women gather in forums to discuss IVF, surrogacy, and isolation -- leaves her longing for a real life community of women working to break down the stigma of infertility. In the tradition of Eula Biss’s On Immunity and Barbara Ehrenreich's Bright-sided, Kimball marries perceptive analysis with deep reportage -- her findings show the lie behind the prevailing, and at times paradoxical, cultural attitudes regarding women’s right to actively choose to have children. Braiding together feminist history, memoir, and reporting from the front lines of the battle for reproductive rights and technology, The Seed plants in readers the desire for a world where no woman is made to feel that her biology is her destiny.

    Joining the ranks of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, You Are a Badas*, and F*ck Feelings comes this refreshing, BS-free, self-empowerment guide that offers an honest, no-nonsense, tough-love approach to help you move past self-imposed limitations. 
     
    Are you tired of feeling fu*ked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unfu*ked version of yourself. ''Wake up to the miracle you are,'' he directs. ''Here's what you've forgotten: You're a fu*king miracle of being.'' It isn't other people that are standing in your way, it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive, it's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself. 
     
    In Unfu*k Yourself, Bishop leads you through a series of seven assertions: 
     
    I am willing. 
    I am wired to win. 
    I got this. 
    I embrace the uncertainty. 
    I am not my thoughts; I am what I do. 
    I am relentless. 
    I expect nothing and accept everything. 
     
    Lead the life you were meant to have—Unfu*k Yourself.

    Men, Don't Be Nervous or Shy. Your Eyes Is the Unknown Magic of Developing Unstoppable Confidence Around Women
     
    This book will turn you from that shy guy who rarely makes eye contact to the Swift who makes elders nervous by looking them straight in the eye until they become the first to look away.
     
    Confidence is a sexy skill and clothes to wear. A man with it is a man with a brighter future. To some, confidence is natural, but to most, it must be learned.
     
    The easiest way to develop your confidence is by mastering the eyes and putting yourself in the real world. This book can be finished in few minutes.
     
    It has the only secret you need to develop a magnetic personality with your eyes alone. When you look someone dead in the eye, you’ll appear confident in the receiver’s eyes.
     
    He or she will become shy, nervous, or will be wondering what is going on. Now, adding a smile or a wink will ease them into knowing you’re flirting with their brains.
     
    What else is sexier than a confident man or woman? Even Mark Twain was always nervous just like most people. When giving a speech, he couldn’t look people in the eye too.
     
    He learned it the hard way, but here, we are to make things easy for you. If someone had introduced this to him, it would have been an easy road.
     
    You’re at luck to have this secret in the open. At the end of this three-chapter book, you’ll learn Intense Eye Contact, Magnetic Left Eye Wink, and The Blurry Eye to set you apart from the rest of the men and women of this world.
     
    By this time tomorrow or next week, you’ll testify the same good testimony as Mr. Swift did in this book. He testified how powerful this system is.
     
    How he does it to elderly ones everywhere he goes. Put a smile on your face as you read and practice this simple trick. In fact, it’s not a trick, but a life and confidence building weapon. ALL MEN MUST KNOW THIS.
     
    Before you purchase this book, it's good to know what is inside this book works—guaranteed!
     
    Would you rather handle this now or keep using drugs or alcohol to boost your confidence around women?

    This book is for everyone who desperately needs to find a way to cope with the jerks, the idiots and the terrible people in our lives. 
     
    The truth is, we’ve all got a little bit of jerk, idiocy and terribleness inside of us. The question is, just how much? Want to find out? Read this book. And maybe the even more important question; when we meet people who have a Chernobyl level of it all pumping through their veins, how are we supposed to deal with them?
     
    This is NOT a book for people who get offended easily. If you want to have some fun by exploring the inner, most dark thoughts we all have in our minds about how to deal with people who drive us crazy… then this book is for you. If you are bothered by those things, it’s probably best if you look for a book about unicorns and rainbows. Yes, you are better than us. 
     
    Have you ever felt yourself secretly wishing that the guy who cut you off in rush hour would spill boiling coffee in his lap and drive into a ditch? At any point in your life do you wonder how your co-worker managed to get the raise you deserved even though they are so obviously unqualified because they can’t even spell their own name correctly? Have you ever been perplexed why there are so many truly terrible people in the world who seem to exist just to mess with you?
     
    Told in a fun, conversational tone, you will gather an understanding of how the world, and humans, have raced to the bottom and how to free yourself from letting these jerks, idiots and terrible people control your life. 
     
    It’s gonna be a fun ride. You in? Coming, Valentines Day, 2020.

    MEN: If You Want to Naturally Last as Long as You Want in Bed Without Drugs and Permanently Cure Premature Ejaculation in No Time, Then This Is All You’ll Ever Need – Guaranteed! 
     
    Calm down and put a smile on your face. You are not the only one. I know “exactly” what you’re going through and this book is 100% the cure with a solid guarantee. Don’t worry, be happy. You’ll see for yourself soon.
     
    The day I smooched a girl, I ejaculated in my pants in less than 69 seconds. That day was one of my worst days and I vowed to handle this part of my life once and for all. I was so embarrassed.
     
    I'll save you from your bedroom depression and frustration.
     
    Investing in your sex life is an investment for your future. Some people will discourage you by saying, "Make money first, or go to school first."
     
    Both are good advice, but your ego will be shattered when you suck with women in general and mostly in bed.
     
    You will be tired of tramadol, alcohol, Viagra, marijuana, cocaine, codeine, or any other substances you believe in. Remember, most of them have side effects.
     
    Why not acquire these skills naturally? One day, you'll travel abroad and may not get your local enhancer there.
     
    Think of the money you waste on paying for sex with women just to get in their panties or get them to love you.
     
    Or, the money you spend on buying sexual enhancers and substances. Calculate the money for a year and you’ll see how much you’ve been wasting.
    
     
    When you have this skill,
     
    * The table will turn
     
    * Women will be the ones spending on you just to have a taste.
     
    Lasting long enough to make a woman have an orgasm or squirt is more gratifying than being in the office.
    
     
    When your woman is satisfied,
     
    * You will feel great about yourself and
     
    * You will do things you have never done before with joy
     
    * It will boost your confidence.
     
    Who doesn't want to last longer in bed? All men want to be the men who always rock their women at any given time.
     
    If you cannot last long enough for your woman to reach an orgasm and fulfill her sexual needs, then she'll find it somewhere else, and you know what that means?
    
     
    So, do all your learning now. With Lasticle:
     
    * You'll start making fun of men who use Viagra
     
    * Or other sex-enhancing substances to boost their performances
     
    * You'll become one of those men who will NEVER need an enhancer to last long
     
    * Your eyes will open to sexual realities.
     
    It's not easy, but it's achievable if you put your heart to it. We have trained lots of men who didn’t believe they could do it.
     
    The end of your premature ejaculation is here and do not miss the opportunity of being the man every woman wants to sleep with or at least, fantasize about.
     
    Be careful, this book will forever change your sex life for good. Your confidence and composure around women will skyrocket to another level.
     
    At the end of this Lasticle book, I promise, you will be confident in anything regarding lasting as long as you want in bed and in turn, unimaginably satisfy your woman.
     
    Before you purchase this book, it's good to know what is inside this book is the only permanent solution on earth and it works—guaranteed!
     
    Would you rather have this handled now or keep wasting money on sex drugs for the rest of your life? This is the best material you'll ever read on this topic. I kid you not. You'll smile at last and finally say, "Why haven't I read this book all these while?"
