Make Your Move by Jon Birger Summary

Modern romance is broken. It's time to flip the script. Apps have transformed dating from a mysterious adventure into a daily chore. Young, single, college-educated women are sick and tired of competing for a shrinking supply of guys. And marriage-material men, long expected to take the lead when it comes to asking women out, are suddenly balking at making the first move, fearing they'll come across as creepy or inappropriate. Society is changing, which means it's time for dating to evolve. Millennial and Gen Z women are more than capable of seeking out what—and who—they want. They're standouts in the classroom and champions on the playing fields. They're leaders in the workplace and trailblazers in city halls, state houses, and Congress. So why would we tell a generation of badass women that they're not allowed to be bold when it comes to finding love? Why should they have to sit back and wait (and wait and wait) for men to find them? In Make Your Move: The New Science of Dating and Why Women Are in Charge, Jon Birger, author of Date-onomics, offers women bold new strategies for finding the one. Backed by research showing that women can win at romance by making the first move with the men of their choice, Birger explains why: • It's better to choose than to be chosen • The "play hard to get" method is not only outdated but grounded in bad science • The first move does not have to be a big move • It's time to log off of dating apps and date men you actually know • The workplace can be a terrific place to meet a long-term romantic partner • . . . and more! Make Your Move is an honest, solution-based guide to finding love that lasts. If you're tired of playing by old rules, look no further: Make your move and win.

He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt,Liz Tuccillo Summary

He’s Just Not That Into You—based on a popular episode of Sex and the City—is tough love advice for otherwise smart women on how to tell when a guy just doesn’t like them enough, so they can stop wasting time making excuses for a dead-end relationship. It’s the best relationship advice you’ll ever receive. For ages, women have come together over coffee, cocktails, or late-night phone chats to analyze the puzzling behavior of men. He’s afraid to get hurt again. Maybe he doesn’t want to ruin the friendship. Maybe he’s intimidated by me. He just got out of a relationship. Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo are here to say that—despite good intentions—you’re wasting your time. Men are not complicated, although they’d like you to think they are. And there are no mixed messages. The truth may be, He’s just not that into you. Unfortunately, guys are too terrified to ever directly tell a woman, “You're not the one.” But their actions absolutely show how they feel. Reexamining familiar scenarios and classic mindsets that keep us in unsatisfying relationships, Behrendt and Tuccillo’s wise and wry understanding of the sexes spares women hours of waiting by the phone, obsessing over the details with sympathetic girlfriends, and hoping his mixed messages really mean, “I’m in love with you and want to be with you.” He’s Just Not That Into You is provocative, hilarious, and, above all, intoxicatingly liberating. It deserves a place on every woman’s night table. It knows you’re a beautiful, smart, funny woman who deserves better. The next time you feel the need to start “figuring him out,” consider the glorious thought that maybe, He’s just not that into you. And then set yourself loose to go find the one who is.

The Case for Falling in Love by Mari Ruti Summary

Praise for The Case for Falling in Love "Why play 'hard to get' when you can just get what you want? Mari Ruti's lively research, from Plato to Freud to Gossip Girl to her own bedroom, finally puts an end to playing games, and provides a resource for lovers and the love-scorned alike. A must-read for anyone who has ever fallen in love, wants to, or wants to know what went wrong." -Arianne Cohen, creator of TheSexDiariesProject.com "At last, a relationship advice book that will actually work. If you're intelligent, interested in love, and like a book you can't put down, this is it. John Gray, move over. The brilliant Mari Ruti has arrived." -Juliet Schor, professor of sociology, Boston College, and author of Born to Buy and Plenitude: The New Economics of True Wealth "Groundbreaking...Ruti opens the eyes of her readers so that they can love better...A must-read." -Nancy Redd, New York Times bestselling author of Body Drama "Finally, a book that takes love seriously. Written with passion and verve...I wish I had read this book years ago!" -Sean Carroll, author of From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time Are you tired of reading book after book and playing game after game, trying to avoid heartbreak? It seems impossible, and maybe that's because you can't lock up your heart like that-not if you want the real thing. And maybe that's one of the best things about love. We've been thinking about it all wrong. Our culture's insistence that women need to learn how to catch and keep a man is actually doing much more harm than good. The more we try to manipulate our relationships, the less we are truly able to experience love's benefits and wonders. Love is a slippery, unruly thing, and trying to control and manage it robs us of its delicious unpredictability. Sure, letting go of the reins a bit might mean a broken heart, but heartbreak, in fact, offers a wealth of possibilities-creativity, wisdom, and growth-that we need in order to make the most of our lives. Liberating for women who are frustrated by the idea that they just need to learn the right "formula," The Case for Falling in Love shows that there isn't a method to mastering the madness of love. But that might be exactly what's so wonderful about it.

Disalienation by Camille Robcis Summary

From 1940 to 1945, forty thousand patients died in French psychiatric hospitals. The Vichy regime’s “soft extermination” let patients die of cold, starvation, or lack of care. But in Saint-Alban-sur-Limagnole, a small village in central France, one psychiatric hospital attempted to resist. Hoarding food with the help of the local population, the staff not only worked to keep patients alive but began to rethink the practical and theoretical bases of psychiatric care. The movement that began at Saint-Alban came to be known as institutional psychotherapy and would go on to have a profound influence on postwar French thought. In Disalienation, Camille Robcis grapples with the historical, intellectual, and psychiatric meaning of the ethics articulated at Saint-Alban by exploring the movement’s key thinkers, including François Tosquelles, Frantz Fanon, Félix Guattari, and Michel Foucault. Anchored in the history of one hospital, Robcis's study draws on a wide geographic context—revolutionary Spain, occupied France, colonial Algeria, and beyond—and charts the movement's place within a broad political-economic landscape, from fascism to Stalinism to postwar capitalism.

The Tragedy of Heterosexuality by Jane Ward Summary

A troubling account of heterosexual desire in the era of #MeToo Heterosexuality is in crisis. Reports of sexual harassment, misconduct, and rape saturate the news in the era of #MeToo. Straight men and women spend thousands of dollars every day on relationship coaches, seduction boot camps, and couple’s therapy in a search for happiness. In The Tragedy of Heterosexuality, Jane Ward smartly explores what, exactly, is wrong with heterosexuality in the twenty-first century, and what straight people can do to fix it for good. She shows how straight women, and to a lesser extent straight men, have tried to mend a fraught patriarchal system in which intimacy, sexual fulfillment, and mutual respect are expected to coexist alongside enduring forms of inequality, alienation, and violence in straight relationships. Ward also takes an intriguing look at the multi-billion-dollar self-help industry, which markets goods and services to help heterosexual couples without addressing the root of their problems. Ultimately, she encourages straight men and women to take a page out of queer culture, reminding them “about the human capacity to desire, fuck, and show respect at the same time.”

Clinical psychologist, Dr Stephen Briers shines a light into the dark corners of self-help and explodes the myths, false hopes, quack philosophies and unrealistic expectations it routinely advocates. It is a refreshing antidote to the `same old same old’ approaches, offering a radical re-think of the way we approach problems in our lives, offering empowering new perspectives and expert advice on avoiding the biggest life traps. Dr Briers questions the perceived wisdom, shakes up the status quo, and encourages us to think again.

Women Past and Present by Maria Zina Gonçalves de Abreu Summary

In Western societies, many traditional feminist claims have already been fulfilled both in law and in official discourse. Indeed, legislative steps have already been taken towards securing civil and political rights and equal opportunities for women. This, of course, is not the case in many other regions of the world, as some of the chapters in this book clearly testify. Yet, notwithstanding the gains achieved in Western societies, residual forms of resistance and prejudice still persist in discourses, categories and discriminative practices in this so-called “post-feminist” era. Furthermore, new manifestations of asymmetries in gender relations and new ways of thinking and experiencing subjectivity are currently emerging, as a result of growing globalisation, economic crises, migration patterns, female sex and labour trafficking, trans-nationalism, and new technologies, not to mention the beauty and body sculpting industries.

The Good Girl Revolution by Wendy Shalit Summary

Across the country, there’s a youth-led rebellion challenging the status quo. In Seattle and Pittsburgh, teenage girls protest against companies that sell sleazy clothing. Online, a nineteen-year-old describes her struggles with her mother, who she feels is pressuring her to lose her virginity. In a small town outside Philadelphia, an eleventh-grade girl, upset over a “dirty book” read aloud in English class, takes her case to the school board. These are not your mother’s rebels. Drawing on numerous studies and interviews, the brilliant Wendy Shalit makes the case that today’s virulent “bad girl” mindset truly oppresses young women. She reveals how the media, one’s peers, and even parents can undermine girls’ quests for their authentic selves, and explains what it means to break from the herd mentality and choose integrity over popularity. Written with sincerity and upbeat humor, The Good Girl Revolution rescues the good girl from the realm of mythology and old manners guides to show that today’ s version is the real rebel. Society may perceive the good girl as “mild,” but Shalit demonstrates that she is in fact the opposite. The new female role models are not “people pleasing” or repressed; they are outspoken and reclaiming their individuality. These empowering stories are sure to be an inspiration to teenagers and parents alike. Join the conversation at www.thegoodgirlrevolution.com

Selected Tales by James Henry Summary

Throughout his life, Henry James was drawn to the short story form for the freedom and variety it offered. The nineteen stories in this selection span James's career, from brief tales to longer works, all exploring his concerns with the old world and the new, money, fame and art. 'Daisy Miller', the work that first brought him fame, depicts a bold, unsophisticated American girl abroad, and 'In the Cage' portrays a young telegraphist's romantic fantasies about customers who send telegrams from her post office. In 'The Birthplace' a Stratford tour guide embellishes the Shakespeare legend, while in the late masterpiece 'The Jolly Corner', an elderly American returns from Europe and encounters a strange apparition. Haunting, witty and beautifully drawn, James's tales are as complex and resonant as his novels.

I Am Not Myself These Days by Josh Kilmer-Purcell Summary

“A glittering, bittersweet vision of an outsider who turned himself into the life and soul of the party. Kilmer-Purcell’s cast is part freak-show, part soap-opera, but his prose is graced with such insight and wit that the laughter is revelatory, and the tears—and there are tears to be shed along this extraordinary journey—are shed for people in whom everybody will find something of themselves. In a word, wonderful.” — Clive Barker “Absolutely hilarious and heartbreaking and heartfelt.” —Armistead Maupin, author of Tales of the City The New York Times bestselling, darkly funny memoir of a young New Yorker's daring dual life—advertising art director by day, glitter-dripping drag queen and nightclub beauty-pageant hopeful by night—was a smash literary debut for Josh Kilmer-Purcell, now known for his popular Planet Green television series The Fabulous Beekman Boys. His story begins here—before the homemade goat milk soaps and hand-gathered honeys, before his memoir of the city mouse’s move to the country, The Bucolic Plague—in I Am Not Myself These Days, with “plenty of dishy anecdotes and moments of tragi-camp delight” (Washington Post).

How To Get Over A Boy by Chidera Eggerue Summary

Are you fed up with thinking about that guy every minute of every waking hour, when he doesn't even reply to your texts? Are you reeling from the pain of a break-up, unsure of where to turn? Are you single and looking to be happy with your choices in the face of society's constant questioning? In How to Get Over a Boy, bestselling author Chidera Eggerue will show you, once and for all, how to reframe the stale goal of finding a man. She will equip you with tangible and applicable solutions for every part of your dating life, helping you recognise that men hold as much power in our romantic lives as we grant them. In the past, dating books tend to lean more into the territory of ‘how to make him find you hot!’, ‘how to make him jealous!’, ‘how to get him to propose!’. But these how-tos are placing men on a pedestal of being ‘the prize’. Men are NEVER the prize. You are. Let The Slumflower show you why.

Surrounded by Psychopaths by Thomas Erikson Summary

Part of the bestselling Surrounded by Idiots series! #1 internationally bestselling author Thomas Erikson shows readers how to identify and avoid the psychopaths around them. Charming, charismatic, and delightful or manipulative, self-serving, and cunning? Psychopaths are both and that’s exactly what makes them dangerous. Bestselling author of the international phenomenon Surrounded by Idiots, Thomas Erikson reveals how to identify the psychopaths in your life and combat their efforts to control and manipulate. Using the same simple four-color system of behavior classification that made Surrounded by Idiots so popular, Surrounded by Psychopaths teaches readers how to deal with psychopaths in their lives by becoming aware of their own behavior and their weaknesses. Vivid example stories illustrate ways that psychopaths can take advantage of various behavior types, helping readers identify their own weaknesses and be proactive about protecting themselves. Erikson outlines some of the most common forms of manipulation used by psychopaths—and others—to influence those around them. Since manipulation can often be a feature of ordinary, non-psychopathic relationships, the book also includes practical methods and techniques to help readers confront controlling people and rehabilitate negative relationships into mutually respectful ones. By understanding your behavior as well as the tendencies and strategies of psychopaths, Surrounded by Psychopaths will teach you to protect yourself from manipulative influence in your workplace, social life, and family.

Du måste komma ensam by Souad Mekhennet Summary

Du måste komma ensam, sa de. Jag fick inte ha några id-handlingar och skulle lämna mobilen, diktafonen, klockan och handväskan på mitt hotell ... I hela sitt yrkesliv har Washington Post-reportern Souad Mekhennet behövt förhålla sig till sin muslimska bakgrund och det faktum att hon är född och uppvuxen mitt i Europa. Som journalist har hon försökt skildra de skilda perspektiven i kampen för och emot radikal jihadism. Hon har fått intervjua militanta islamister, inte för att de håller med henne, utan för att de anser att hon ger en rättvisande bild av dem. Men hon berättar också med stor inlevelse om hur deras offer drabbas. I denna självbiografiska reportagebok skriver hon om möten och händelser hon varit med om, rör sig mellan Tyskland och Libanon, Irak och London, Pakistan och Paris, träffar talibaner, al-Qaidafolk och personer från ISIS ledning. Hon berättar om hur hon avslöjade Jihadi Johns rätta identitet, fick kontakt med släktingar till Bataclanterroristerna och om hur hennes egen släkt drabbats av sådana vanvettsdåd.

我必須獨自赴約:第一線聖戰報導紀實 by 蘇雅德.梅科涅特(Souad Mekhennet)著,溫澤元譯 Summary

內容簡介 融合歷史、回憶錄及報導文學的形式, 以探險小說筆觸,引領我們進入聖戰世界。 「若真想理解二十一世紀西方世界面臨的危機, 請從本書開始。」 ──普立茲獎得主 喬比.渥瑞克(Joby Warrick)盛讚此書 ※《華盛頓郵報》、《出版者周刊》年度 10 大好書 ※ 來自西方世界的女性穆斯林記者, 紀實報導聖戰世界的究極力作。梅科涅特帶著無以倫比的勇氣與智慧, 直探伊斯蘭的根源核心。 其機智、聰敏、堅韌不懈和克服困境的精神, 深深打動讀者。 她被要求必須獨自赴約, 甚至不能攜任何證件、手機或錄音器材與錢包…… 為了第一線採訪與真實接觸的機會, 藉由這部報導文學回顧生命中的驚險歷程, 她呈現給世人一部無比珍貴的作品! 作者是美國《華盛頓郵報》記者,也曾替《紐約時報》工作,她是穆斯林第二代移民,在德國成長、接受教育。特殊的身分也讓她始終致力於讓所處的兩個世界──穆斯林與西方能和諧共處,或開啟更多對話的可能。由此之故,她決定獨闖險地,並說服幾位向來拒絕與西方記者往來的頭號通緝人物,願破例接受她的採訪。她不畏生命威脅,與蓋達組織、塔利班、伊斯蘭國及其分枝的重要領袖聯繫。每當受訪者要求她得獨自赴約,她都無法預知將面臨何種挑戰。這本書可說是她以驚險的採訪生涯和生命歷程所寫成的深刻報導,不僅動人而且真實,也為難解的全球世局與危機,開啟前所未有的新視野。 從九一一事件策劃者發跡的德國社區,以及遜尼派和什葉派爆發衝突的伊拉克社區出發,接著來到伊斯蘭國紮根的土耳其與敘利亞國界。她記下自己在中東和北非地區採訪時,被情報單位逮捕的驚悚過程,也揭露「阿拉伯之春」看似光明其實背後複雜的情勢。而後她回到歐洲,先是到英國,以調查惡名昭彰的伊斯蘭國劊子手聖戰士約翰的真實身分,再造訪法國、比利時,又回到自己土生土長的德國,探究被恐懼籠罩的西方文明社會。 蘇雅德.梅科涅特以犀利的文筆,記下自己所經歷的蛻變之旅,也讓讀者得以窺探那些聳動新聞標題背後隱藏的真相。 各方好評 •阿潑(轉角國際專欄作家)、陳玉慧(作家)、楊智強(獨立記者) 誠摯推薦 「這世間沒有真相,只有多靠近真相;而她致力於貼近真相。」——陳玉慧 •Amazon 讀者★★★★★推薦 •各大媒體《華盛頓郵報》、《紐約時報》、《經濟學人》、《出版者周刊》等推薦 「蘇雅德.梅科涅特的傑出回憶錄具有兩種層次。其一,身為德國穆斯林移民第二代的她,努力替兩個文化找出和諧共處的解方。其二,身為記者的她大膽無懼,調查許多近幾年的重大危險事件,並得以親自採訪聖戰組織高層領導人,令其他記者望塵莫及。這兩個屬於梅科涅特的特質,匯聚成這部令人懾服的傑作。」——彼得.卑爾根(Peter Bergen),《聖戰美國:這些土生土長的美籍恐怖份子是誰?如何阻止他們?》(United States of Jihad: Who Are American’s Homegrown Terrorists and How Do We Stop Them?)作者 「作者在這本書中,用迷人的敘述,引人入勝地融合歷史、回憶錄及報導文學的形式,敘說由於她兼具記者及穆斯林的身分,得以在歐洲、中東及北非各地執行任務,及過程中所遭遇到的親身經歷。」 ——《出版者周刊》(Publishers Weekly) 「這本關於中東與北非地區聖戰網絡的報導文學╱回憶錄令人入迷,也時而讓人震驚。梅科涅特以獨到的觀點,帶出恐怖組織暴力行徑在當前所造成的危機,並不時深入提出質疑。」——《紐約時報》(The New York Times) 「這絕對是一本重要之作……再也沒有比梅科涅特更適合處理此議題的記者。勇敢、機智、聰敏、堅韌不懈,用這些詞來形容她,絕不為過。」——《華盛頓郵報》(The Washington Post) 「這本書跳脫報導文學,具有許多令人激賞之處。作者身為穆斯林女性,致力撥開極端分子的神秘面紗,試圖看清這些扼殺信仰原意的人究竟是什麼模樣,並將報導呈現給自己所屬的西方國度,讓對聖戰組織百思不解的人明白其動機與思維。……梅科涅特是用智慧在觀察這個世界。」——《經濟學人》(The Economist) 「扣人心弦、令人不忍釋卷。……此書居中斡旋,試圖替長年來誤解彼此的文化族群解開心結。」——《芝加哥書評》(Chicago Review of Books) 「這本書不僅敘事流暢,更是一本探討我們這個時代的重要著作。具有聰穎天資的作者帶著勇氣,直探極端伊斯蘭主義的根源核心。蘇雅德.梅科涅特甘冒風險,勇於挑戰敏感議題,更將自身背景帶入敘事,造就這部令人難以忘懷、廢寢忘食的作品。若真想理解二十一世紀西方世界面臨的危機,請從本書開始。」——喬比.渥瑞克(Joby Warrick),普立茲獎得獎作品《黑色旗幟:伊斯蘭國的崛起》(Black Flags: The Rise of ISIS)作者 「這部作品如同一部探險小說,帶我們進入穆斯林世界的核心。梅科涅特是來自西方世界的女性穆斯林記者,但她所能掌握的訊息與情報卻是多數記者所不能及。藉由她的雙眼,我們看到恐怖主義的發展過程,更了解到這是一場兩敗俱傷的戰爭。她的洞見犀利,也同時帶有深刻的智慧,正是現今社會迫切需要的聲音。」——潔西卡.斯特恩(Jessica Stern),《伊斯蘭國:恐懼之地》(ISIS: The State of Terror)合著者
