One Woman Three Men
Author: Pouline Middleton
Publisher: SCB Distributors
Loosely based on the author's real life story, this is a provocative, titillating, and intelligent novel about a strong, independent woman (Elizabeth) who, following a divorce, decides that the modern paradigm of love needs a revolution. Given that infidelity is rampant and that 40% of first marriages end in divorce, she decides that trying to get all of her needs fulfilled by a single man just doesn't work in today's world. What she needs is 3 men -one for conversation, one for sex, and one handyman to do work around her house. What follows is a riveting, sexy, saucy tale about her search for 3 men willing to play those roles. Set in Copenhagen, Elizabeth advertises on a dating website--and men reply to her by the droves. Over the course of a year, Elizabeth experiments with her new model of love and sex, dating many men, and discovering how she often can't decide which role they will play--but nor can the men. Most guys reply to her that they are her "perfect" sex partner, and a few offer to be her conversational partner (with sex) or her handyman (with sex). One promising date turns out to be like a B&D character from 50 Shades of Grey, another guy pretends to be a successful entrepreneur, while another is an army General who secretly wears dresses. Elizabeth finally meets someone who intrigues her beyond all others--a unique man of intellect and savoir-vivre. He invites her into a "secret society" of men who adore and worship women. He neither wants to own her or control her--exactly what Elizabeth is looking for. He might be a "3 in 1." It turns out that 2 other men in her life are friends of his. When all 3 men meet Elizabeth one night for a special dinner in a castle, Elizabeth gets to experience 3 men all at once in a way she never imagined. But that night gives Elizabeth a new impetus to reconsider her model of love. When another man courts her, she comes to realize that, perhaps, romance between 1 man and 1 woman is not entirely an outmoded idea. It may actually be the true way that men and women can love, though she remains convinced that women need to be equal partners in a relationship and question the romantic stereotypes of love they are lulled into believing. Modern love and sex still need a revolution.

Author: Daniel Goleman
Emotional Intelligence was an international phenomenon, appearing on the New York Times bestseller list for over a year and selling more than five million copies worldwide. Now, once again, Daniel Goleman has written a groundbreaking synthesis of the latest findings in biology and brain science, revealing that we are “wired to connect” and the surprisingly deep impact of our relationships on every aspect of our lives. Far more than we are consciously aware, our daily encounters with parents, spouses, bosses, and even strangers shape our brains and affect cells throughout our bodies—down to the level of our genes—for good or ill. In Social Intelligence, Daniel Goleman explores an emerging new science with startling implications for our interpersonal world. Its most fundamental discovery: we are designed for sociability, constantly engaged in a “neural ballet” that connects us brain to brain with those around us. Our reactions to others, and theirs to us, have a far-reaching biological impact, sending out cascades of hormones that regulate everything from our hearts to our immune systems, making good relationships act like vitamins—and bad relationships like poisons. We can “catch” other people’s emotions the way we catch a cold, and the consequences of isolation or relentless social stress can be life-shortening. Goleman explains the surprising accuracy of first impressions, the basis of charisma and emotional power, the complexity of sexual attraction, and how we detect lies. He describes the “dark side” of social intelligence, from narcissism to Machiavellianism and psychopathy. He also reveals our astonishing capacity for “mindsight,” as well as the tragedy of those, like autistic children, whose mindsight is impaired. Is there a way to raise our children to be happy? What is the basis of a nourishing marriage? How can business leaders and teachers inspire the best in those they lead and teach? How can groups divided by prejudice and hatred come to live together in peace? The answers to these questions may not be as elusive as we once thought. And Goleman delivers his most heartening news with powerful conviction: we humans have a built-in bias toward empathy, cooperation, and altruism–provided we develop the social intelligence to nurture these capacities in ourselves and others. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In Praise of Weakness
Author: Alexandre Jollien
Publisher: Upper West Side Philosophers Incorporated
Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. Disability Studies. Self-help. Philosophy & Spirituality. Essay. Theater. Translated from the French by Michael Eskin. Foreword by Matthieu Ricard. Alexandre Jollien, who is the first and only major thinker and spiritual teacher in the history of philosophy to have been born with cerebral palsy, tells the story of how he grew up in a home for the severely disabled and was destined to roll cigars; how he discovered philosophy, which changed his life forever, helping him to confront his fate, endow it with meaning, and turn his disability into a source of strength and creative energy; how, against all odds, he fought his way out of the home and into high school and university, where as an undergraduate he wrote IN PRAISE OF WEAKNESS... Imbued with human warmth and wisdom, this modern Socratic dialogue is a poignant testament to the inestimable value of friendship, the power of imagination, and the will to overcome. A book that inspires and gives courage. "Alexandre Jollien proves that despite being born severely disabled it is still possible ... to construct a personality, build a family, and, most astonishingly of all, to become a philosopher, whose body of work has already been translated into German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese ..." —L'Express "... a remarkable philosophical work, concise and joyful ... a message delivered from another realm ..." —Lib�ration "IN PRAISE OF WEAKNESS ... takes a fresh and insightful look at the nature of difference and the adaptive capacity of man." —The Irish Times
