  • Secrets Series: Attract The Woman Of Your Dreams: Love & Attraction Persuasion Psychology

    As with all other areas of success in life, attracting the woman of your dreams is not something you can assume you are just going to stumble upon one day. Attraction isn’t a random occurrence, and in the same way you wouldn’t set out to build a house with no plans… hoping fate will deliver your soulmate is unproductive waste of time and energy. One of the biggest mistakes men make is assuming that women think and feel the same way that they do.

    If you could sum up Secrets Series: Attract The Woman Of Your Dreams in three words, what would they be?

    Gap filling information.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Secrets Series: Attract The Woman Of Your Dreams?

    When Craig Beck spoke about a quick and easy way to control a conversation with the opposite sex, by barely saying anything.


    Which character – as performed by Craig Beck – was your favorite?

    When he went into character as the woman in the conversation who is saying a lot to someone of the opposite sex during conversation, when that man is barely speaking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me see (and feel) the emotion I feel right before I laugh or cry (It some points DEAD ON!)


    Any additional comments?

    I love the fact that this book delivers the type of messages it set out to deliver, in such a short amount of listening (reading) time. That is a skill, that most Authors, regardless of the subject matter, tend not to have. I must say, that I was fairly impressed with as much information as I picked up from such a short book. I will be reading this again very soon... "I highly recommend this book" to any guy who feels that they know, a little, or fairly decent amount of the pieces to the dating puzzle (and the psychology of women), but those pieces are scattered around in their brain. This book will fill in "A LOT" of those gaps.

    Healing the Shame That Binds You is the most enduring work of family relationship expert and New York Times best-selling author John Bradshaw. In it, he shows how unhealthy toxic shame, often learned young and maintained into adulthood, is the core component in our compulsions, co-dependencies, addictions and drive to superachieve.

    Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can't remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages. Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think and what they value.

    Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

    This book not only answers common sense questions, it answers those very important, sometimes afraid to ask questions - but answers all of the above. It challenges "you," to be the best possible version of "you." If you are looking to gain, not just monetary success, but, success, in general - OPEN THIS BOOK AND JUST "READ" (Whether paperback, or audio)... "GREAT READ," really expands the way one thinks.

    To anyone who has all 5 senses and has ever made an excuse about what they cannot improve their lives in some positive way "NEEDS" to read this book. For someone such as Helen Keller, who lived most of her life without the ability to hear or see, who accomplished the great things she accomplished, There's no reason why people today should make any "excuses" on why they cannot find ways (or better ways) to improve themselves, and their life styles... This book hits the core of a person, "it touches your spirit."

    For many, the name Jimi Hendrix conjures up a larger-than-life image of the man who set fire to guitars, women's hearts, and the status quo. In this groundbreaking account, music journalist Charles R. Cross takes a far deeper look. Beyond Hendrix's legendary onstage and offstage magnetism, and his excessive lifestyle, was a man who struggled to accept his role as an idol and privately craved the kind of normal family life he never had.

    I started this book with no preconceived notions. I just wanted to know more about the Artist known as "Jimi Hendrix", whom I had seen and heard of over the years. From the very beginning of the book, I was in a trance - I did not want to stop reading. From the raw, unedited, details of the story teller, I felt as if I was there with "Jimi" during his life - This is a skill that only "the most" talented writers can do; pulling the reader deep into the story, deep into the "experience." "I highly recommend this book" to anyone looking for "Truth" and "Inspiration" from the life of "Jimi Hendrix."

    Borderline Personality Disorder. "What the hell was that?" raged Rachel Reiland when she read the diagnosis written in her medical chart. As the 29-year old accountant, wife, and mother of young children would soon discover, it was the diagnosis that finally explained her explosive anger, manipulative behaviors, and self-destructive episodes- including bouts of anorexia, substance abuse, and sexual promiscuity.

    This story pulls you in from within the 1st few chapters. By showing what someone feels and thinks when their emotions hit extreme, in many different areas, is very eye opening - it was hard for me to put the book down; wanting to read more, and more and more. Reading her story of BPD, and how she has recovered, was like witnessing evolution, but emotionally, and in a much shorter period of time... "Great Book."

    Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities - emotional intelligence - that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

    What did you love best about Emotional Intelligence?

    The way the Author made you understand that it's a science behind how feel, and act in different situations.


    What other book might you compare Emotional Intelligence to and why?

    I have not found such a book. This one seems pretty original.


    What three words best describe Barrett Whitener’s voice?

    Very intellectual... Like a seasoned university professor.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "The Heart's Mind"


    Any additional comments?

    This book provides some "GREAT" information. But! All the Medical Terminology makes it hard to follow from the beginning. It took me a few chapters to really get into, and understand what some of the Medical Terms were... If this was written with in an easier to follow format (i.e. without all the Medical Terminology) I would have gave it "5 Stars" across the board. But because of the use of all the Medical Terminology, at times, I found myself trying to figure out what certain word meant, or stood for, rather than just focusing on the actual information in the story that was being told.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stop Walking on Eggshells?

    When I realized in the middle of the 1st chapter that I have a few close family members possibly with BPD.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    The young wife with BPD


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Stop Walking on Eggshells?

    I will look for further info on BPD, to see how I can apply it to the situations in my life that I deal with, with those close to me that might have the disorder.
