    About Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman 
    Best selling author and Nobel Prize Winner Daniel Kahneman’s purpose in his book Thinking Fast and Slow is to bring within the grasp of everyday understanding the power of psychology, perception, illogical thinking, irrationality, and behavioral economics. Arguably Daniel Kahneman’s most famous publication, the book summarizes research that he has conducted over decades and decades. Inside, Kahneman explains how we, as humans, often think and behave irrationally due to faulty intuition, biases, and erroneous mental shortcuts, and how these patterns of thought can hold us back.

    Cold War, Hot Passions 
    
     
    by André Jute 
    
    
    
     
    On Christmas Eve 1968 Yuri Andropov, soon to be Chairman of the KGB, returns home unexpectedly to discover an orgiastic party thrown by his son. In his own bed Andropov finds Babe Bibikov and Nadia Kerensky. Andropov calls for the files of his son’s friends… 
    
    
    
     
    These grandchildren of revolutionary heroes are high-flying students at the prestigious Institute of International Relations. Piotr, an old-style hardliner who believes that the glorious aims of Lenin’s revolution justifies any means, however base, is sponsored by the KGB and, even more sinisterly, by Marshal Kurusov of the Politburo. But Babe and Vladimir, even as students, are starting to grasp that communism has failed Russia. 
    
    
    
     
    Babe, Vladimir and Piotr all join the KGB. Vladimir shortly becomes an aide to Andropov and marries Nina. Babe distinguishes himself in Egypt and meets the CIA agent Hubbell Adams, whom he does not report to his superiors. His marriage to the supremely beautiful but selfish Nadia is strained by his questioning attitude which threatens their good life. On a boar hunt with grandfather Nikolai and Brezhnev, Sergei Kurusov and Andropov recruit Babe and Vladimir for a mysterious plan to regenerate Russia. Meanwhile Piotr is rising through the ranks of the spetsnaz, the most thuggish and loyal of Russia’s special forces. 
    
    
    
     
    Babe betrays Soviet machinations in Egypt to the Americans and in July 1971 defects to the US. Nadia returns to Moscow and becomes a ‘swallow’, using her body to extract secrets from diplomats. In the US, Babe is incarcerated in solitary confinement by the brutal CIA man Conrad Drexler (one of Nadia’s lovers).

    We will show you how to trigger a very deep level of attraction in a woman, to make your dating fantastic.

    There is nobody in the world today using the Power of Suggestion through hypnotic selling quite the way Barker has mastered it. He’s been featured on NBC’s “Today Show,” CBS’s “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and countless other TV programs. 
    Every human action must have a thought attached to it first, everything starts with a thought. The thought then may or may not translate into an action; thought or feeling or even a physical chemical reaction.  
    What if I could change or reprogram that thought process which would in turn enable a different response or outcome? I believe we do not walk around in life seeing the world, we actually think it. We have millions of thoughts all day and through a hypnotic process I can make the outcome of the thought and even the thought itself change in a certain direction.  
    There is no such thing as random thoughts, everything is triggered from the subconscious mind- the part we use during hypnosis. 
    Richard Barker has written this fascinating book titled “Selling Hypnotically” Undoubtedly Barker’s book will give you a distinct advantage over your competitors, which makes it a must-have tool for your arsena
