    How would you like the ability to literally be any person you want to be?Any character at all!How about the ability to elicit laughter and good feelings at will from any target? Just look at Conan O'Brein and other professional comedians, and compare their ability to generate high levels of buying temperature as opposed to the best PUAs- including Mystery!  Videos of this exists in Youtube, and their just not in the same league!How about PUAs acting like the prize, their Pimp, Alpha whatever as opposed to real-life dweebs who play these convincing characters on the big screen? Again the comparison is unfair, and these professionally trained Actors and Comedians are just light years beyond any PUA!The purpose of this book then is to introduce to you what should be standard training in the pickup arts that sadly only a very tiny percentage of the community are trained in and see the game this way!One way to professionalize and improve your game and performance is to actually embrace and treat the pickup arts as partly a performance art medium.

    From the bestselling author of A More Beautiful Question, hundreds of big and small questions that harness the magic of inquiry to tackle challenges we all face--at work, in our relationships, and beyond. 
      
    When confronted with almost any demanding situation, the act of questioning can help guide us to smart decisions. By asking questions, we can analyze, learn, and move forward in the face of uncertainty. But "questionologist" Warren Berger says that the questions must be the right ones; the ones that cut to the heart of complexity or enable us to see an old problem in a fresh way. 
      
    In The Book of Beautiful Questions, Berger shares illuminating stories and compelling research on the power of inquiry. Drawn from the insights and expertise of psychologists, innovators, effective leaders, and some of the world's foremost creative thinkers, he presents the essential questions readers need to make the best choices when it truly counts, with a particular focus in four key areas: decision-making, creativity, leadership, and relationships. 
      
    The powerful questions in this book can help you: 
    -        Identify opportunities in your career or industry 
    -        Generate fresh ideas in business or in your own creative pursuits 
    -        Check your biases so you can make better judgments and decisions 
    -        Do a better job of communicating and connecting with the people around you 
      
    Thoughtful, provocative, and actionable, these beautiful questions can be applied immediately to bring about change in your work or your everyday life.

    The acclaimed first volume in feminist icon bell hooks' "Love Song to the Nation,”  All About Love is a revelation about what causes a polarized society and how to heal the divisions that cause suffering. Here is the truth about love, and inspiration to help us instill caring, compassion, and strength in our homes, schools, and workplaces. 
    “The word ‘love’ is most often defined as a noun, yet we would all love better if we used it as a verb,” writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in All About Love. Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, renowned scholar, cultural critic and feminist bell hooks offers a proactive new ethic for a society bereft with lovelessness--not the lack of romance, but the lack of care, compassion, and unity. People are divided, she declares, by society’s failure to provide a model for learning to love.  
    As bell hooks uses her incisive mind to explore the question “What is love?” her answers strike at both the mind and heart. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and for a nation. The Utne Reader declared bell hooks one of the “100 Visionaries Who Can Change Your Life.” All About Love is a powerful, timely affirmation of just how profoundly her revelations can change hearts and minds for the better.

    Skin brushing can make you feel amazing - right from the first session!
     
    (If you do it right)
     
    Dry skin brushing (aka body brushing) is an old naturopathic technique that you can do even when not feeling great. It simply involves brushing the body all over with a firm brush. Why? Because it makes you look and feel absolutely amazing!It works as a detox by stimulating the lymphatic and blood systems, boosting metabolism, and improving elimination through the skin - the body's largest organ. The lymph gets sluggish when we don't move much, as it relies on muscles to move its contents.
     
    Done incorrectly, any detox can make you feel awful - the side-effects can be pretty rough. This book shows you how to detox by using skin brushing without unpleasant side-effects. You will feel good from Day One. By Day Ten you will have established a new health habit that you can build on.
     
    A Unique New Method Of Dry Skin Brushing
     
    This book contains a unique method of brushing. If you have done skin brushing before you may have been told to start at the feet and just brush towards the heart. You'll find out why that isn't always the case and the exact way to brush every inch of your body. This new method has been tried, tested, and refined by the author, experienced aromatherapist and health coach Mia Campbell.
     
    The Benefits
     
    The most famous reason for trying skin brushing is to eliminate cellulite. That it can do and so much more, including:

    > Reduced stress
     
    An incredible list of benefits - and that isn't all of them. Try it for yourself. All you need is a brush (between $10 and $15) and this book.
     
    Why Do You Need This Book?
     
    Here is the author's own experience:
     
    "I was suffering from a few health problems, including chronic fatigue syndrome, and took up skin brushing as part of a regime to improve my health. I gave up caffeine at the same time. The result was a headache so bad that I wanted to die! I gave up skin brushing and the health drive and sloped back to bed. I hadn't realized that taking up new health habits should be done gradually, one at a time, or you can be overwhelmed by the effects of the detox. After I trained in aromatherapy and massage I understood more about detoxing. I learned about manual lymphatic drainage and wondered why most articles that explain how to do skin brushing differed so much from the way that manual lymphatic drainage therapists work. Over a period of time - and experimentation on my [willing!] clients - I devised my own method of skin brushing. It stimulates the lymphatic system without overloading it so makes you feel wonderful while detoxing, which is pretty rare."
     
    Check With Your Physician
     
    As always, do check with a physician or other health professional before embarking on a new regimen that can affect your health.

    I practise my shock-horror face in the mirror for the seventh time. 'My husband, he's . . . dead.' 
     
    Bethan Phillips has only one thing on her mind: killing her rich and elderly husband for his fortune. But after several thwarted attempts, it is a horrific accident while holidaying together in Snowdonia that takes Humphrey down.
     
    Now she must pretend he's alive, continuing social gatherings alone under the guise he is undertaking business abroad. Because someone witnessed her leaving Humphrey to die, and should the police investigate his death they'll discover the series of 'accidents' he's survived in the previous few days... and it won't take them long to connect the dots.
     
    There are many reasons Bethan would rather the police didn't look too closely at her. Or the life she lived before becoming Bethan Philips. Unfortunately for her, DI Emma Locke is on the case.
     
    A gripping new psychological thriller, Kiss Me, Kill Me is smart, sly and unforgettable. You won't be able to put it down.
