"ONE OF THE 10 MOST ICONIC RELATIONSHIP BOOKS OF THE PAST TEN YEARS" by Yahoo.<br /><br />Never shy and always laugh-out-loud funny, Sherry Argov's New York Times Bestseller WHY MEN MARRY BITCHES - EXPANDED NEW EDITION, shows women how to get a man's respect, and love. Its the dating book you will pick up each time you need to feel more confident in your relationship. With girlfriend-to-girlfriend detail, and the kind of heartfelt advice you would only get from a big sister, Argov explains why being overly nice doesn't mean a man will be more attentive. The mate seeking guide shares real-life interviews with hundreds of men who answer questions and divulge secrets so you understand how men think. The men will explain:<br /><br />-Why is a strong woman so appealing? <br />--Will some men manipulate a weaker woman to get the relationship to always be...on his terms?<br />--Why are men secretly attracted to a confident woman?<br />-What makes a man fall madly in love?<br /><br />This new edition about love and romance has:<br /><br />--Two new chapters!<br />--100 "Desirability Principles" you will read over and over!<br />--25 Never Before Published New Principles<br />--And many more interviews with men!<br /><br />There is a reason why your girlfriends keep telling you to buy Why Men Marry Bitches. And now, the NEW EXPANDED EDITION is even more comprehensive. Whether you are single or married, this book will show you how to feel confident and exude dignity with men. Its the feel-good guide that will show you how to get the love and respect...that you deserve. <br /><br />Praise for Sherry Argov's books:<br /><br />"A self-help classic." --Daily Mail<br /><br />"America's top relationship guide." --The Book Tribe<br /><br />"Men don't really go for 'nice.' They go for 'interesting.'" --Chicago Sun-Times<br /><br />"We're talking about having so much self-respect, Aretha Franklin would high-five you." --Los Angeles Times<br /><br />"The pejorative meaning of the word 'bitch' has been reclaimed... it means a strong, feisty woman who has moxie, and knows when to use it. A bitch is... sap free." --Pursuit Magazine<br /><br />"[Argov is] talking about a strong woman. Someone who knows what she's doing in life. Someone who will share the load, but who will stand her ground." --Joy Behar, Co-host of The View<br /><br />"Sherry Argov shows women how to transform a casual relationship into a committed one." --The Today Show<br /><br />"The Best of Culture." --Esquire<br /><br />"A hot book!" --Fox News Channel<br /><br />"A must-read at Sunday brunch." --New York Daily News<br /><br />"(Argov's book flew off the shelves.... Men thrive with women who can set boundaries and who push back when they try to cross the line." --Cosmopolitan<br /><br />"Ultimately Sherry Argov's message boils down to one of confidence and self respect...it's the only sane way to go." --Glo MSN

Waking the Tiger offers a new and hopeful vision of trauma. It views the human animal as a unique being, endowed with an instinctual capacity. It asks and answers an intriguing question: why are animals in the wild, though threatened routinely, rarely traumatized? By understanding the dynamics that make wild animals virtually immune to traumatic symptoms, the mystery of human trauma is revealed.<br /><br />Waking the Tiger normalizes the symptoms of trauma and the steps needed to heal them. People are often traumatized by seemingly ordinary experiences. The reader is taken on a guided tour of the subtle, yet powerful impulses that govern our responses to overwhelming life events. To do this, it employs a series of exercises that help us focus on bodily sensations. Through heightened awareness of these sensations trauma can be healed.

<p><b>Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print</b></p><p> Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful <i>Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers</i> features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress.<br />As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. <br />Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, <i>Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers</i> explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.</p>

Praise For WHEN THE BODY SAYS NO<br /><br />"Once thought to be in the domain of genes, our health and behavior have recently been revealed to be controlled by our perception of the environment and our beliefs. Gabor Mate, M.D., skillfully blends recent advances in biomedicine with the personal insights of his patients to provide empowering insight into how deeply developmental experiences shape our health, behavior, attitudes, and relationships. A must-read for health professionals and lay readers seeking awareness of how the mind controls health."<br />-- Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., cellular biologist<br /><br />"The interviewees' stories are often touching and haunting. . . . Mate carefully explains the biological mechanisms that are activated when stress and trauma exert a powerful influence on the body, and he backs up his claims with compelling evidence from the field. . . . Both the lay and specialist reader will be grateful for the final chapter, 'The Seven A's of Healing,' in which Mate presents an open formula for healing and the prevention of illness from hidden stress."<br />-- Quill & Quire<br /><br />"Medical science searches high and low for the causes of cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and a host of other conditions. Yet it often ignores one of the most pervasive factors leading to illness: the hidden stresses embedded in our daily lives. In this important book, Dr. Gabor Mate combines a passionate examination of his patients' life histories with lucid explanations of the science behind mind-body unity. He makes a compelling argument for the importance of understanding stress both in the causation of disease and in the restoration of health."<br />-- Richard Earle, Ph.D. <br />Director of the Canadian Institute of Stress/ Hans Selye Foundation<br /><br />Praise For SCATTERED<br /><br />"One of the most comprehensive and accessible books about Attention Deficit Disorder."<br />-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)<br /><br />"Utterly sensible and deeply moving."<br />-- The Vancouver Sun

<b>Courtney Carver shows us the power of simplicity to improve our health, build more meaningful relationships, and relieve stress in our professional and personal lives.</b><br /><br />We are often on a quest for more—we give in to pressure every day to work more, own more, and do more. For Carver, this constant striving had to come to a stop when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Stress was like gasoline on the fire of symptoms, and it became clear that she needed to root out the physical and psychological clutter that were the source of her debt and discontent. <br />     In this book, she shows us how to pursue practical minimalism so we can create more with less—more space, more time, and even more love. Carver invites us to look at the big picture, discover what's most important to us, and reclaim lightness and ease by getting rid of all the excess things.
