Summary

An updated edition of Germaine Greer's revolutionary discussion of menopause, which the New York Times Book Review called "a brilliant, gutsy, exhilarating, bruising, exasperating fury of a book." 
 
A quarter of a century after the first publication of Germaine Greer's now canonical look at women's experience later in life, the renowned feminist and prolific author updates and expands her essential book, The Change. 
 
Despite improvements over the last few years, discussions about menopause are still hampered by a huge variance in conventional wisdom about what happens, when it happens, when it can be said to be over, and how to deal with it. After decades, the same misinformation and ineffective methods are still being widely touted and proliferating at an alarming rate due to the rise of the Internet. In this updated edition of her groundbreaking book, Greer debunks stubborn myths and presents a vital new perspective on the emotional and physical changes--including up-to-date medical details--women face today when they go through what's known as "the change." 
 
Greer also addresses cultural changes that surround female aging today, launching a clear and necessary protest against the notion that women should shrink into the background as they grow older. She argues that menopause marks the point in a woman's life when she should be able to stop apologizing and bask in the freedom and joy that come with her later years. Witty, wise, and timely, this new edition of The Change offers a crucial twenty-first-century guide to the change that every woman faces.

    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?

    Think and Grow Rich

    Think And Grow Rich has earned itself the reputation of being considered a textbook for actionable techniques that can help one get better at doing anything, not just by rich and wealthy, but also by people doing wonderful work in their respective fields. There are hundreds and thousands of successful people in the world who can vouch for the contents of this book. At the time of author’s death, about 20 million copies had already been sold. Numerous revisions have been made in the book, from time to time, to make the book more readable and comprehensible to the readers. 
    The book details out the most fundamental questions that once bothered the author, Napoleon Hill. The author once set out on a personal quest to find out what really made some people so successful. Why is it that some people manage to remain healthy, happy and financially independent, all at the same time? Why, after all, do some end up being called as lucky? The answers, no wonder, had to be no less than revelations. 
    For more than a decade, the author interviewed some of the wealthiest and most successful people in the world. It was based on what author learnt in the process from all these people, when asked about how they achieved not just great riches but also personal wellbeing. The author formulated hundreds and thousands of answers, into concise principles which when acted upon, many claim, can help one achieve unprecedented success. 
    The author has in many places narrated short stories and examples that help explain the concept at hand in an engaging manner. Think and Grow Rich teaches not just concepts but also methods. It is not a book that a reader can use for one time consumption. The book, even author recommends, has to be read one chapter at a time and in sequence. Several readers and even some motivational speakers claim to have been reading this book over and over again, few pages at a time, for a long time now. Till date, it remains the number one self help book in the world, as far as sales are concerned! 
    About author: 
    An American journalist, lecturer and author, Napoleon Hill is one of the earliest producers of 'personal-success literature’. As an author of self-help books, Hill has always abided by and promoted principle of intense and burning passion being the sole key to achieve success. Hill has authored numerous books among which Think and Grow Rich has been his most well-known works and had sold over 20 million copies back in the 1930s.

    Highs and lows are an inevitable part of life for most people. Some of us find it harder than others to deal with. In this book I tell you how about how I dealt with mine and came out the other end. All for the price of a double cheeseburger. There is other cool stuff in here too.
