Summary

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.

    Unlock The Keys To Fight Fatigue And Get More Energy All Day
     
    Having enough energy is vital to getting through the day.
     
    For professionals, that means being able to check off the to-do list and clear off the desk of work that has been piling up. For students, that means being able to manage all that studying while also being able to maintain a social life.
     
    And for everybody else and in between, simply going through the daily motion of life is exhausting, and by the time they are done for the day, they are ready to crash in bed and don't have the energy to enjoy the things they love but only to return to the grind the next day.
     
    What's the worst part of all? Most folks can't even make it through the day with their limited supply of exhausted energy, with so many things left on their plates to do before the afternoon slump hits. As a result, their work begins to suffer and fatigue has begun a norm causing detriments to their health.
     
    That is why it's crucial to be able to manually recharge your energy when necessary, and that can be easily accomplished using simple energy hacks.
     
    In “Energy Hacks,” discover how to:
     
    - Shock your body awake instantly with icy cold water
     
    - Apply the ancient art of acupressure points for energy
     
    - Rejuvenate your mind with specific breathing patterns
     
    - Overcome tiredness and fatigue by doing self-massages
     
    - Incorporate an energy-boosting elixir for 24-hour energy
     
    - Substitute the morning cup of Joe with better alternatives
     
    - Refuel your energy tank by using a surprising indulgence
     
    - Experience the incredible energizing effect of super foods
     
    - Fight the all-too common afternoon slump with power naps
     
    - Get more energy by absorbing the sensation of certain colors
     
    …and more for you to unlock!
     
    You shouldn't be surprised that your energy level also dictates your productivity level of how much you will accomplish for the day and every day that follows for the rest of your life. It's understandable when there is too much to do and never enough time, however, when it comes to not enough energy, that is a different story that you can control.
     
    If you are constantly burning up all your energy that you end up crashing, it's time to upgrade your human battery for unlimited renewed energy.

    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.
