The efficiency of a book is like that of a man, in one important respect: its attitude toward its subject is the first source of its power. A book may be full of good ideas well expressed, but if its writer views his subject from the wrong angle even his excellent advice may prove to be ineffective. This book stands or falls by its authors' attitude toward its subject. If the best way to teach oneself or others to speak effectively in public is to fill the mind with rules, and to set up fixed standards for the interpretation of thought, the utterance of language, the making of gestures, and all the rest, then this book will be limited in value to such stray ideas throughout its pages as may prove helpful to the reader–as an effort to enforce a group of principles it must be reckoned a failure, because it is then untrue.

Do you sometimes feel as though you are getting nowhere in your personal agenda? Do problems that you thought resolved seem to keep resurfacing? Perhaps you are simply not using the correct approach. This book by Lise Bourbeau, just as reliable as those before it, demonstrates that all problems of a physical, emotional or mental order come from five important sources of hurt: rejection, abandonment, humiliation, betrayal and injustice. Thanks to the carefully detailed description of these inner wounds, and the masks that you have designed in order to not see or feel them, you will come to identify the true cause of a certain problem in your life. These masks will also give you answers concerning extreme skinniness or obesity. This book will allow you to move along onto the path of recovery which leads to the ultimate desired result: being yourself. Lise Bourbeau, as always, offers you a practical solution at the end of this book in order to turn your day-to-day problems into stepping-stones toward personal growth and to become aware once more that you are a creative GOD.

From the bestselling author or Less Than Zero and American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction is a startlingly funny, kaleidoscopic novel about three students at a small, affluent liberal-arts college in New England with no plans for the future--or even the present--who become entangled in a curious romantic triangle. Bret Easton Ellis trains his incisive gaze on the kids at self-consciously bohemian Camden College and treats their sexual posturings and agonies with a mixture of acrid hilarity and compassion while exposing the moral vacuum at the center of their lives. Lauren changes boyfriends every time she changes majors and still pines for Victor who split for Europe months ago and she might or might not be writing anonymous love letter to ambivalent, hard-drinking Sean, a hopeless romantic who only has eyes for Lauren, even if he ends up in bed with half the campus, and Paul, Lauren's ex, forthrightly bisexual and whose passion masks a shrewd pragmatism. They waste time getting wasted, race from Thirsty Thursday Happy Hours to Dressed To Get Screwed parties to drinks at The Edge of the World or The Graveyard. The Rules of Attraction is a poignant, hilarious take on the death of romance. The basis for the major motion picture starring James Van Der Beek, Shannyn Sossamon, Jessica Biel, and Kate Bosworth.

The complex moral ambiguities of seduction and revenge make 'Les Liaisons dangereuses' (1782) one of the most scandalous and controversial novels in European literature. The subject of major film and stage adaptations, the novel's prime movers, the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, form an unholy alliance and turn seduction into a game - a game which they must win. Quotes from the book: “When one woman strikes at the heart of another, she seldom misses, and the wound is invariably fatal.” “Truth to tell, the longer I live, the more I'm tempted to think that the only moderately worthwhile people in the world are you and I.” “A man enjoys the happiness he feels, a woman the happiness she gives.” Readers' reviews: “I'm amazed, these two principal characters that are the very incarnations of malice have incredibly salient and correct anecdotes about love and the beauty of sex considering they use it to humiliate others.” (Tessa Concepcion, goodreads.com) “Only a country like France, which takes sex seriously with a smile, as Britain does snobbery with a snoot, could produce this ironic novel.” (Sketchbook, goodreads.com) “I think it was Kierkegaard who advised to be aware of entangling alliances. The web of sin in this book is masterfully woven as letters to frame-up an epistolary novel in which each character's letters speak volumes about the characters themselves.” (Robert Lentz, goodreads.com)
