Summary

Political revolutions have never resulted in the changes they promised. Real change can according to Osho only come from a personal rebellion, a rebellion based on "yes" -- yes to existence, yes to nature, yes to yourself. Humanity has been guided by traditions which are all life-negative – the results of endless wars, a planet in danger and a humanity losing direction are obvious results of these traditions. Only a total affirmation of life, in an absolute yes to nature can bring a new earth and a totally new humanity into being.“Rebellion is a very silent, individual phenomenon that will go on spreading without making any noise and without leaving any footprints behind. It will move from heart to heart in deep silences.”

    Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of school or starting a new career can be daunting. It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us whether or not we are making the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge. That is, until now. 
    As executive director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig guides her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world, providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is an entrepreneur, neuroscientist, and popular teacher, and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students—provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor.  
    These pages are filled with fascinating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving amazing success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our highest potential. We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible, how to recover from failure, and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise. 
    What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 is a much-needed book for everyone looking to make their mark on the world.

    From the mind that brought you the memoirs Elf Girl and Live Nude Elf comes BDSM 101, a no-nonsense manual for those readers interested in learning about bondage and discipline; dominance and submission; and sadism, masochism, or sadomasochism.For years, Rev. Jen has been coaching her readers on all sex-related matters through her articles in Penthouse and posts on Nerve, an online magazine. A self-proclaimed authority on the subject of sex (and specifically BDSM), Jen spent her early twenties working as a professional submissive at a swanky Manhattan dungeon before becoming a sex surrogate for a renowned therapist.In BDSM 101, Jen shares rare insight into this oftentimes misunderstood world. Practical instructions are given on safety, communication, bondage, spanking, flogging, fetishes, humiliation, dirty talk, and more. Included are steamy, sometimes ridiculous anecdotes from Jen’s past, interviews with her wacky artist friends, and basic illustrations. According to the author, “This book is what would happen if Marquis de Sade, Andy Warhol, and Dorothy Parker got together and made a nymphomaniac Bride of Frankenstein.”Useful, entertaining, and written with rare candor, BDSM 101 is something you’ll want to read aloud at parties and also use privately with lovers. It will become an indispensable part of your library of perversion.
