Summary

Using his wit, his rare ability to see through the lies that we sane human beings tell each other in order to hide our selfishness, and his courage to call a spade a spade, which is without a doubt rarely found in someone who makes a living from speaking or writing, Mokokoma Mokhonoana, author of Divided & Conquered and writer of not a few worldview-altering aphorisms, lucidly explores the use and misuse of children by human beings and things such as Mother Nature, religions and churches, countries, and companies. 
Among other things, Mokokoma, using brief and potent sentences, touches on the real reason or reasons why you were intentionally brought into this troubled world. Or why your mother, if you were conceived unintentionally, did not order, ask, or beg someone to end your life way before you had to be pushed or pulled out of her womb.

    How did you first learn about sex? If you grew up in the 1970s, it may have been from a gleefully lusty tour guide named Xaviera HollanderIn the late 1960s -- that era of sexual chaos, when Playboy Clubs and love-ins were competing for national attention -- a beautiful, intelligent young Dutch secretary named Xaviera de Vries moved to New York, grew swiftly tired of her desk job . . . and soon became the most visible and glamorous madam the city had ever seen. As Xaviera Hollander, she published a shockingly candid account of her life behind the brothel door. The Happy Hooker shot straight to the top of the bestseller lists, sold more than fifteen million copies, and made this enterprising young woman an international phenomenon. Thirty years later, these delightfully explicit tales of the '60s and '70s swingers' scene -- including countless jaw-dropping stories of lesbianism, bondage, fetishism, and more -- remain as titillating as ever, charged with the mix of shrewd observation and uninhibited appetite that made Hollander an irresistible storyteller. The Happy Hooker is a classic: the world's greatest book on the world's oldest profession.

    My name is Lisa. I'm the mother of three. I'm an enabler and the wife of an alcoholic. I’m sad. I’m hopeful. I’m scared. Despite more than a decade of living with an alcoholic, I’m still very much in love. Like so many others, I don't know what to do. 
     This is my story. Yet somehow, I believe, it’s also our story. 
    * Seventy-six million Americans, about 43 percent of the U.S. adult population, have been exposed to alcoholism in the family. 
    * Roughly one in eight American adult drinkers is an alcoholic or experiences problems due to the use of alcohol. 
    * Separated and divorced men and women are three times as likely as married men and women to say they had been married to an alcoholic or problem drinker. 
    * Almost two-thirds of separated and divorced women, and almost half of separated or divorced men, under age 46, have been exposed to alcoholism. 
    For two decades, Lisa Livingston has watched her husband drown himself in booze.  She’s done everything she can to help him or, at least, understand why he can’t embrace a sober life. They have, after all, everything they’ve ever dreamed of. As Jeff’s drinking escalates, Lisa must make a decision. But with love in the mix, it’s not always as easy as it seems. 99 Bottles is story of a middle-aged woman married to an alcoholic, desperately trying to define and understand herself. What will it take for Lisa to make a change and what decision will she make? 
    Through Lisa’s personal journey, 99 Bottles exposes the too-often secret moments of hope, despair, triumph and heartache millions face in living with an alcoholic.

    #1 New York Times Bestseller 
    Over 1 million copies sold 
    In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. 
    For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.  
    Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.  
    There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.
