This is a collection of intimate and sometimes shocking conversations about motivation with 12 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts. The end result is 12 fascinating and unexpected stories about overcoming adversity and achieving success in life and Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu has often been used as a metaphor of life, but you can replace Jiu-Jitsu with any sport, business or ambitious pursuit - the lessons are universal. What drives ambitious people is often shaped by our subconscious mind. We are not always aware of the influences driving our behavior, but you will discover underlying themes.

An essential exploration of why and how women's sexuality works - based on groundbreaking research and brain science - that will radically transform your sex life into one filled with confidence and joy. Researchers have spent the last decade trying to develop a "pink pill" for women to function like Viagra does for men. So where is it? Well, for reasons this book makes crystal clear, that pill will never exist - but as a result of the research that's gone into it, scientists in the last few years have learned more about how women's sexuality works than we ever thought possible.
