<h2>Discover the Feminine Quality That Makes Him <i>Crave</i> Your Attention</h2><br />Chances are, you’ve read just about everything you can on how to keep a man interested in you. Women’s magazines often give advice like “be your best self”, “focus on you”, or “put on that mini-skirt he loves.” While these things do work to keep a man interested, they’re surface level tactics that only work temporarily.<br /><br />Women who know how to keep a man happy understand what men want in a woman. These women are irresistible not because of their looks, but because they possess one feminine quality that make men crave their attention. <br /><br />High-quality men, the ones that desire true commitment from a woman, desperately yearn for the company of a woman who understands <i>how</i> to keep him captivated by her.<br /><br />So what is the secret to getting a man to crave your attention?

If you want to be able to communicate your needs and wants to a man without him losing his temper or ignoring you completely, you must learn how to talk to a man <i>gracefully</i>.<br /><br />If a man doesn’t feel respected when you communicate with him it’s impossible to connect with him on an intimate level. And without that intimate connection, there’s nothing you can do to keep him captivated by you.<br /><br />To achieve lasting intimacy with a woman, a man needs to feel emotionally secure with her. But if a woman fails to communicate respectfully, he won’t feel confident sharing his whole heart with her.<br /><br /><h2>Become the <i>Only</i> Woman He Opens Up and Listens to</h2><br />Men give their undivided attention to those who respect them. If a man doesn’t feel respected communicating with you, he’ll find the respect he <i>needs</i> elsewhere. The woman who knows how to communicate with men can influence the man she wants without resorting to “that mini-skirt he loves.”<br /><br />A man craves the attention of a graceful woman who knows exactly what to say to him, when to say it, and most importantly, <i>how</i> to say it to get what SHE wants. Men love being <i>gracefully influenced</i> by the woman they adore.<br /><br />If you’re interested in learning how to talk to a man so that he opens up to you, listens to you, and willingly gives you what you want without a fuss, this book will help you to communicate with men more effectively.<br /><br />Here’s what you’re going to learn inside:<br /><ul><li>Discover how to tell him exactly what’s on your mind without turning him off.</li><li><b>Learn how to communicate what you want and need from him, and make him HAPPY to give it to you.</b></li><li>Find out the four most powerful words good men desperately need to hear from the woman they love.</li><li><b>Discover how to have difficult conversations with him without making him resent or resist you.</b></li><li>Learn how to be a good wife or girlfriend by being more assertive (attractive) with your man without being aggressive (unattractive).</li><li><b>How to understand the masculine mind and speak his language so that he FEELS exactly what you say to him.</b></li><li>How to get him to fall in love with you immediately AFTER an intense argument.</li><li><b>Uncover the secrets to making him to open up emotionally and get the deep, intimate connection you desperately want with him.</b></li><li>And much, much more…</li></ul><h2>Would You Like to Know More?</h2><br />Get started right away and learn how to communicate with a man so that he listens to you, opens up to you, and <i>deeply</i> craves your attention.<br /><br />Scroll to the top of the page and select the 'buy button' <u>now</u>.

Far more than a guide to homemaking and being a fine host—although it is definitely all that too—<i>The Inviting Life</i> is about how to live each day with a desire and determination to turn the ordinary into something lovely. It’s also a book about why we should bother. Whether the subject is décor, ambience, shopping, feeding weary travellers, mixing cocktails, planning dinner parties, or getting yourself motivated for spring cleaning, Laura Calder affirms the value of our everyday activities and shows how beauty, creativity, and delight have the power to change the world. This one-of-a-kind book is both a page-turning narrative about Laura’s own hosting and home-making adventures and an invaluable work of reference. It’s a spur to ideas for everything from creating a welcoming living space and making a respectable salad, to putting guests at their ease and writing a thank-you note worth receiving. Written with candour and humour in Laura’s inimitable and engaging voice, <i>The Inviting Life</i> offers empowering guidance for anyone looking to take more pleasure in their life and home.

<b>Farewell to faux pas!</b> <br /><br />Minding your manners is an acquired skill, but what serves you well elsewhere could trip you up in Japan. Save yourself possible embarrassment with <i>Etiquette Guide to Japan</i>. An inside look at Japanese social graces, it answers all the questions of the thoughtful traveler. Extensive, specific information on Japanese business etiquette assists readers traveling to Japan for business.<br /><br />Although often overshadowed by a modern facade, long–standing traditional aspects of Japan's culture still influence the country and almost everyone in it. Concrete evidence of this traditional culture can be seen everywhere—in the ancient arts and crafts that are still important parts of everyday life, in the many shrines and temples that dot the nation, and in the modern comeback of traditional fashions such as kimono and yakata robes. <br /><br />To many Western visitors, however, the most obvious example of this traditional culture's strength is the unique etiquette of the Japanese. Like many nations, Japan has experienced vast political, social, and economic change over the past century. But enough of Japan's traditional etiquette remains to set the Japanese apart socially and psychologically and to make success in socializing and doing business with them a special challenge for Westerners. <br /><br /><b>About this new version:</b><br />This updated and expanded edition of the best-selling Japanese etiquette guide addresses not just the puzzling protocols relating to name cards, bowing or shaking hands, bathrooms and public baths—but also what to do when entertaining Japanese dinner guests, attending a Japanese tea ceremony, taking the subway, and much more! It also provides the latest etiquette in mobile phone manners, texting, social media and other forms of digital communication. <br /><br />The glossary at the back of the book has been revised to include the latest technology-related words and expressions used by Japanese today. Two new chapters address the changing role of foreigners in the workplace and the contemporary business style and etiquette used by the younger generation of Japanese who are now increasingly cosmopolitan—but still very Japanese!

A guide to personal and professional empowerment through civility and social skills, written by two White House Social Secretaries who offer an important fundamental message—everyone is important and everyone deserves to be treated well.<BR><BR>Former White House social secretaries Lea Berman, who worked for George and Laura Bush, and Jeremy Bernard, who worked for Michelle and Barack Obama, have written an entertaining and uniquely practical guide to personal and professional success in modern life. Their daily experiences at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue taught them valuable lessons about how to work productively with people from different walks of life and points of view. These Washington insiders share what they’ve learned through first person examples of their own glamorous (and sometimes harrowing) moments with celebrities, foreign leaders and that most unpredictable of animals—the American politician.<BR> <BR>This book is for you if you feel unsure of yourself in social settings, if you’d like to get along more easily with others, or if you want to break through to a new level of cooperation with your boss and coworkers. They give specific advice for how to exude confidence even when you don’t feel it, ways to establish your reputation as an individual whom people like, trust, and want to help, and lay out the specific social skills still essential to success - despite our increasingly digitized world. Jeremy and Lea prove that social skills are learned behavior that anyone can acquire, and tell the stories of their own unlikely paths to becoming the social arbiters of the White House, while providing tantalizing insights into the character of the first ladies and presidents they served.<BR> <BR>This is not a book about old school etiquette; they explain the things we all want to know, like how to walk into a roomful of strangers and make friends, what to do about a difficult colleague who makes you dread coming to work each day, and how to navigate the sometimes-treacherous waters of social media in a special chapter on “Virtual Manners.” For lovers of White House history, this is a treasure of never-before-published anecdotes from the authors and their fellow former social secretaries as they describe pearl-clutching moments with presidents and first ladies dating back to the Johnson administration.<BR> <BR>The authors make a case for the importance of a return to treating people well in American political life, maintaining that democracy cannot be sustained without public civility.<BR> <BR><i>Foreword by Laura Bush</i>
