<b>INSTANT <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER!</b><br /><br /><b>Now being developed as a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC!</b><br /><br /><b>鈥淩arely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing.鈥濃€擪atie Couric</b><br /> 聽<br /><b>鈥淭his is a daring, delightful, and transformative book.鈥濃€?lt;/b><b>Arianna Huffington,聽Founder,聽<i>Huffington Post</i>聽and Founder & CEO, Thrive Global</b><br /> 聽<br /><b>鈥淲ise, warm, smart, and funny. You must read this book.鈥濃€?lt;/b><b>Susan Cain, <i>New York Times</i> best-selling author of聽<i>Quiet</i></b><br /><br /><b>From a <i>New York Times</i> best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist鈥檚 world鈥攚here her patients are looking for answers (and so is she).</b><br /><br /> One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose of顱fice she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but.<br /> 聽<br /> As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients鈥?lives 鈥?a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can鈥檛 stop hooking up with the wrong guys 鈥?she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell.<br /> 聽<br /> With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.<br /> 聽<br /><i>Maybe You Should Talk to Someone </i>is rev顱olutionary in its candor, offering a deeply per顱sonal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly reveal顱ing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

<b>A Best Book of the Year: <i>The Financial Times, Bloomberg, Chicago Tribune, </i>and<i> Detroit Free Pres</i></b><i></i><b></b><b></b><i></i><i></i><i></i><br /><b>Malcolm Gladwell, host of the podcast Revisionist History and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller <i>Outliers</i>, offers a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers -- and why they often go wrong.</b><br />How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn't true?<br />While tackling these questions, Malcolm Gladwell was not solely writing a book for the page. He was also producing for the ear. In the audiobook version of <i>Talking to Strangers</i>, you'll hear the voices of people he interviewed--scientists, criminologists, military psychologists. Court transcripts are brought to life with re-enactments. You actually hear the contentious arrest of Sandra Bland by the side of the road in Texas. As Gladwell revisits the deceptions of Bernie Madoff, the trial of Amanda Knox, and the suicide of Sylvia Plath, you hear directly from many of the players in these real-life tragedies. There's even a theme song - Janelle Monae's "Hell You Talmbout."<br />Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don't know. And because we don't know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world.

<p>聽</p><br /><p>聽</p><b>Is there a science to love? </b> <br /><br /> In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory-the most advanced relationship science in existence today-can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many bestselling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships-until now. <br /><br /> Attachment theory owes its inception to British psychologist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, who in the 1950s examined the tremendous impact that our early relationships with our parents or caregivers has on the people we become. Also central to attachment theory is the discovery that our need to be in a close relationship with one or more individuals is embedded in our genes. <br /><br /> In <i>Attached</i>, Levine and Heller trace how these evolutionary influences continue to shape who we are in our relationships today. According to attachment theory, every person behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways: <br /><br /> *ANXIOUS people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back. <br /><br /> *AVOIDANT people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness. <br /><br /> *SECURE people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving. <br /><br /> <i>Attached</i> guides readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mates) follow. It also offers readers a wealth of advice on how to navigate their relationships more wisely given their attachment style and that of their partner. An insightful look at the science behind love, <i>Attached</i> offers readers a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections.

What if charisma could be taught?<br /><br />For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial.<br /><br />What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.<br /><br /><i>The Charisma Myth</i> is a mix of fun stories, sound science, and practical tools. Cabane takes a hard scientific approach to a heretofore mystical topic, covering what charisma actually is, how it is learned, what its side effects are, and how to handle them.<br /><p></p>
