Summary

A WOMAN’S BATTLE WITH THE BILLION-DOLLAR BABY BUSINESSCracked Open is Miriam Zoll's eye-opening account of growing into womanhood with the simultaneous opportunities and freedoms afforded by the U.S. women's movement and new discoveries in reproductive technologies. Influenced by the pervasive media and cultural messages suggesting that science had eclipsed Mother Nature, Zoll––like millions of women around the world––postpones marriage and motherhood. She embarks on an exciting career, travels the globe, and eventually marries in her mid-30s. By 40, she has finally overcome her fears of being an unfit mother and is ready to embrace motherhood but nature does not cooperate.In accordance with the times, she and her husband sign up for fertility treatments but neither one is prepared for the science-fiction world they have entered; a world full of medical seduction, capitalist conception and bioethical quagmires. Desperate to conceive, they turn into fertility junkies drawn into the cold, sterile world of the laboratory, where they increasingly find themselves disconnected from nature, their values, and each other. Eventually, they realize that the unregulated multi-billion-dollar U.S. fertility industry has promised her and millions of other couples far more than it can deliver.

    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.

    Do You Make These MISTAKES with Women and End Up Being REJECTED or FRIEND-ZONED? Are you finding it difficult to get a woman to fall madly in love with you? Your final and permanent solution (all nice guys and most alpha males don’t know) is here—100% GUARANTEED!
     
    It's sad, but I'm glad it happened...
     
    My heart is heavy to share this story—it’s embarrassing and I don’t want you to laugh yet. Listen, if I count how many times I have been friend-zoned, you’ll feel depressed on my behalf.
     
    The last one was many years ago when I was studying in Singapore. The next day, after my heartbreak, my roommate, Michael, called me and said, “Barack Obama is around. He’s at Orchard to meet with Lee Kuan Yew—come, come, come.”
     
    Michael didn’t know what I was going through. He was at Orchard having fun, but I was at home feeling heartbroken and Obama wasn’t the solution I needed at that moment—I needed a relationship expert.
     
    Luckily, I have become that person I needed and I’ll guide you through the ups and downs of how women work, how to get any woman without being friend-zoned and many more things acclaimed dating gurus won't tell you.
     
    In all things, honesty and foundation are key, and that’s how we’ll start. Skip this stage and you'll be in trouble...
     
    You’ve been lied to by dating gurus. Listen, my case was worse than yours. I thought it was because I came from a not-so-rich family or because I wasn’t too tall and handsome.
     
    The truth is: I was in my head. I was the one killing myself—just the same way you’re mentally sabotaging yourself without knowing.
     
    I wish someone had told me all the things I discovered throughout my struggles in understanding women—it would’ve saved me time and energy.
     
    Imagine the shame and pains you feel emotionally, but you have no one to run to for help except Google, yet there are too many inaccurate info by "acclaimed gurus" trying to fill your brain with pickup lines.
     
    Sometimes, you feel resentful towards women because they either rejected or friend-zoned you. This makes you feel undesirable and angry.
     
    From today, things will forever change for you with the info you'll discover soon. After learning these secrets, don't revenge women—forgive them, but flaunt your newly found confidence and skills.
     
    At the end of this series, you'll solve all your relationship and bedroom problems: 
     
    * You'll make her fall madly in love with you with the secrets inside this series even if you think you are not handsome, tall, rich, or intelligent
     
    * All the time you spent being lonely and masturbating all night will now be spent with a real beautiful woman
     
    * You'll finally become confident around women and be the one to choose any lady you want to be your girlfriend or wife
     
    * You'll never go through heartbreak again. You know how heartbreak sucks, right?
     
    * Your friends will wonder how you get beautiful women easily
     
    * You'll soon teach your nice guys' friends how to do it and even charge them money for it because the knowledge is worth paying any amount to acquire 
     
    "I can't believe it" was the exact line one of our students used after 2 days of applying the technique.
     
    Let me make it clear before you purchase this book. What is inside this book will transform your life — guaranteed!
     
    Would you rather have this handled now or keep wasting time for the rest of your life?
     
    This is the best relationship investment you'll ever make, so go ahead to get the success you've always wanted with beautiful women.

    The roller-coaster life of the flamboyant creator of General Motors"A well-written biography."--New York Times"A well-executed glimpse of one of the giants of the automobile industry."--Publishers WeeklyLong before Ted Turner, Rupert Murdoch, and Bill Gates, there was William C. Durant (1861-1947), the flamboyant businessman who made deals at warp speed to build General Motors and the automotive industry. Now in paperback, The Deal Maker brings Durant, a self-starter obsessed with making it and being seen as making it, to thrilling life. Thriving on the art of the deal, Durant was buying companies at the rate of one every thirty days at the height of his career. By 1910, he had brought together twenty-five automobile firms into what would become the General Motors empire. Then, gambling on a run on GM stock, Durant was forced into a buyout, which unseated him from GM, leaving him without the financial wherewithal to ever succeed again. Featuring some of the most important figures in the history of the automotive industry and American business, including Henry Ford, David Buick, Albert Champion, Louis Chevrolet, Alfred P. Sloan, and Pierre Du Pont, The Deal Maker is a fast-paced, rousing tale of Durant's dizzying success and abject failure.
