L'Art de la Séduction by Robert Greene Summary

Apprenez les lois d’un jeu impitoyable et intemporel pour ensorceler et contraindre votre adversaire à capituler. La séduction est la forme la plus aboutie mais aussi la plus subtile, la plus intelligente du pouvoir. En politique, dans le marketing et la publicité, les médias, au sein de l’entreprise, du temps de Cléopâtre, de Napoléon ou d’aujourd’hui, ceux qui réussissent connaissent les rouages de la séduction – un art, en somme, universel, inébranlable. De Freud à Kierkegaard ou d’Ovide à Casanova, Robert Greene tire de la littérature la quintessence de l’Art de la Séduction, en s’appuyant toujours sur les vies fascinantes des grands personnages de l’Histoire du Monde. Grand amoureux d’histoire, de littérature et de la France en particulier, Robert Greene parle plusieurs langues couramment (dont le français). Diplômé de Berkeley, Californie, en lettres classiques, il est l’auteur de nombreux best-sellers. Prescripteur, sa communauté sur Twitter dépasse les 158 000 abonnés.

Vous allez le payer très cher. » Quand l’actrice Gloria Lamark se suicide, Thomas – qui l’aimait peut-etre plus qu’un fils n’aurait du – a le cœur brise. Pour lui, quelque chose ne tourne pas rond. Comment une pareille tragedie a-t-elle pu se produire ? Comment le psychiatre de sa mere, la coqueluche des medias, a-t-il pu la laisser sombrer ainsi ? Thomas lui faisait pourtant confiance... Le docteur Tennent merite une bonne lecon.

Dans l'ombre de parents psychotiques, Augusten rêve de gloire et de paillettes.

L'Animal social by David BROOKS Summary

Toute vie est un roman - mais quels sont les ressorts intimes de l'intrigue ? Selon David Brooks, trente ans de recherches scientifiques éclairent la question d'un jour nouveau : nous ne sommes ni des êtres rationnels, ni les jouets d'un inconscient de type freudien. Nous sommes avant tout des animaux sociaux, et cette réalité, inscrite au plus profond de nos êtres, dans nos cerveaux, explique notre façon d'évoluer dans l'existence. La science a enfin ouvert la boîte noire de notre esprit. Ses passionnantes découvertes, jusqu'ici confinées dans le cadre des publications savantes, bouleversent le champ de notre compréhension. Vulgarisateur de talent, David Brooks a su en tirer la trame d'une fiction : il nous livre, clés à l'appui, le récit de la vie de deux personnages, Erica et Harold, aussi différents qu'on peut l'être, qui finiront pourtant par bâtir ensemble leur vie et leur réussite. En décryptant leurs émotions, leurs intuitions, leurs désirs enfouis, ces lieux intimes où se forgent le caractère et la destinée, il brosse pour nous l'étonnant tableau de notre propre humanité.

Self-help Messiah by Steven Watts Summary

An illuminating biography of the man who taught Americans “how to win friends and influence people” Before Stephen Covey, Oprah Winfrey, and Malcolm Gladwell there was Dale Carnegie. His book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, became a best seller worldwide, and Life magazine named him one of “the most important Americans of the twentieth century.” This is the first full-scale biography of this influential figure. Dale Carnegie was born in rural Missouri, his father a poor farmer, his mother a successful preacher. To make ends meet he tried his hand at various sales jobs, and his failure to convince his customers to buy what he had to offer eventually became the fuel behind his future glory. Carnegie quickly figured out that something was amiss in American education and in the ways businesspeople related to each other. What he discovered was as simple as it was profound: Understanding people’s needs and desires is paramount in any successful enterprise. Carnegie conceived his book to help people learn to relate to one another and enrich their lives through effective communication. His success was extraordinary, so hungry was 1920s America for a little psychological insight that was easy to apply to everyday affairs. Self-help Messiah tells the story of Carnegie’s personal journey and how it gave rise to the movement of self-help and personal reinvention.

Recovering Our Children by John C. Cates,Jennifer Cummings Summary

Art Greer-Assistant to the General Presbyter, The Presbytery of New Covenant Presbyterian Church (U.S. A.) When parents came to me, having discovered their child was involved in drugs, and asked, "What in the word do I do now?", my answer was simple: "See John Cates!" It still is. Barring that, this book, Recovering Our Children, is the next best thing! Phil Lineberger-Pastor of William Trace Baptist Church of Houston, Texas and Past President of the Baptist General Convention of Texas Recovering Our Children is a winner. John Cates and Jennifer Cummings draw upon their education and experience to help parents recognize the evidence of a young person's abuse of chemicals, to help the parents and young person reach out to those who can help, and to help the parents and young person reclaim control of their own lives. This book will serve as a valuable and encouraging tool for those who have reached the end of their rope. I highly recommend Recovering Our Children Patricia Creer-Past President of the Texas Association of Addiction Professionals Recovering Our Children, derived from experience with thousands of children and their families is reflective of the hard earned lessons of professionals who have intervened in a personal way for a number of years. I hope that this book will reach many in need, for it will help them. But I also hope that those who compose the community that will nurture Alternative Peer Groups will read it and pay attention.

Feminist Companion to the Latter Prophets by Athalya Brenner-Idan Summary

The authoritative status of 'Prophecy' in the Bible poses a challenge to the feminist readers. This challenge is sharpened by the widespread symbolism in prophetic discourse of woman, wife, mother, harlot and the use of what the volume call 'pornoprophetics'. In this collection it is the book of Hosea that attracts special attention, but there are also articles on sexual violence and an introductory essay on prophecy itself as a literary phenomenon. This Feminist Companion offers a sharp confrontation between the voice of the prophetic male and the resistance of the feminist reader.

Self Help, Inc. by Micki McGee Summary

Why doesn't self-help help? Cultural critic Micki McGee puts forward this paradoxical question as she looks at a world where the market for self-improvement products--books, audiotapes, and extreme makeovers--is exploding, and there seems to be no end in sight. Rather than seeing narcissism at the root of the self-help craze, as others have contended, McGee shows a nation relying on self-help culture for advice on how to cope in an increasingly volatile and competitive work world. Self-Help, Inc. reveals how makeover culture traps Americans in endless cycles of self-invention and overwork as they struggle to stay ahead of a rapidly restructuring economic order. A lucid and fascinating treatment of the modern obsession with work and self-improvement, this lively book will strike a chord with its acute diagnosis of the self-help trap and its sharp suggestions for how we can address the alienating conditions of modern work and family life.

Ancient Sins . . . Modern Addictions by R. Scott Sullender Summary

There is a virtual epidemic of addiction in the United States, both traditional addictions to drugs and alcohol but also newer addictions, like sex, gambling, rage, work, and food/eating. Some authorities have labeled addictions the number one mental health problem in America. We are spending millions of dollars annually trying to prevent, understand, and treat this epidemic--and yet by any measure of success we are losing this "war." In this cultural context Dr. Sullender invites us to look again at the spiritually based scheme of the Seven Deadly Sins, which originated at the dawn of Western civilization. He suggests that what our spiritual forebears meant by "deadly" is best captured in the modern concept of "addiction." Based on this thesis, this book explores what is addictive about the sins of pride, envy, anger, greed, gluttony, sloth, and lust, and suggests that these sins are all obsessive, and as such become the mental component in the addictive cycle. Each chapter concludes by offering some spiritual resources, practices, and insights that can help us win the battle against addiction, which is ultimately won or lost on a mental or spiritual plane.
