For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

The key to weight loss isn't calories. It isn't fat. It isn't protein. It isn't even carbs. You can count them, cut them, and swap them all you want, but you won't lose weight if you're eating foods that your body can't tolerate. And the most common diet foods - like egg whites, wheat bread, and fat-free yogurt - are some of the worst offenders. These "healthy" foods are actually making you fat! In this book, celebrity nutritionist and fitness expert J. J. Virgin pinpoints the 10 foods that sabotage weight loss. Just by eliminating these 10 diet saboteurs, listeners will see incredible results.

Amazingly I've battled intestinal issues for over 2 decades (I'm pretty young). I've seen specialists, naturopaths, gone through intense times with many many different bathroom aides(not meaning to get gruesome) to no avail. I'm a small person so no concerns with over weight. It's actually been the opposite. Because food causes so much pain and anguish throughout my entire digestive tract, I always struggle to eat. I got to the point where I mostly ate peanut m&ms, bananas, coffee, tea, spoonfuls of peanut butter when I was desperately hungry and cigarettes to ease the pain from hunger. After week one (although I did eat some of my daughters tres leches birthday cake and paid the price) I was able to go to the bathroom on a daily basis. (at one time for a period of several years o was going 2-3 times every couple of weeks) I decided that this would be a way of life. I cant imagine going back. My body has been begging me to take away gluten, eggs have always made me nauseous, and dairy has always wreaked havoc. Splenda was the tough one. But I haven't gone back. Was it worth the try? Yes, for me it has been life changing

Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and best-selling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers - men and women - to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and different road blocks from men as they advance in the workplace. In fact, the very habits that helped women early in their careers can hinder them as they move up. Simply put, what got you here won't get you there...and you might not even realize your blind spots until it's too late.
