Hailed by The New York Times as "a marvel of storytelling", The Things They Carried’s portrayal of the boots-on-the-ground experience of soldiers in the Vietnam War is a landmark in war writing. Now, three-time Emmy Award winner-Bryan Cranston, star of the hit TV series Breaking Bad, delivers an electrifying performance that walks the book’s hallucinatory line between reality and fiction and highlights the emotional power of the spoken word.

Are you having frequent bouts of anxiety or depression? Do all modern therapeutic methods seem useless? Why not try stoicism? Stoicism is an ancient Greek philosophy that has been hailed as a savior of humanity. It is a philosophy practiced by ancient Greeks and Romans over 2,000 years back and has not lost its appeal in the present century. Such is its power that it is applicable even in the present day.

He delved into the different stoics; the times they lived in; shit like that,; which detracted from the book. I haven't remembered those dates he mentioned, and they too are irrelevant. I can see that the dates may be useful on the printed format for someone to study stoicism, but in an audio version, those dates taking over 20 minutes I find unnecessary.
Overall, a good book, you just need to skip the first 20 minutes of fluff to get right a way to the meat of it.
Do get the book. It's cheap, and a great introduction to Stoicism.

You have to put yourselves out there, reaching out to woman after woman, hoping for some sort of response, handling rejection after rejection. It's frustrating. And sometimes you just want to know what you've done wrong.

There aren't any advice here that you needed. If you have common sense, you don't fucking need this book. And if anyone lacks common sense, they should not be taught to fake it, as does she, because these fuckups will fuck up the life of those women they will attract with their act.
It seems that this is her marriage statement which must be signed by her future mate. Great, she wrote a book defining how should her mate act for her to accept him. Bitch, please, there are plenty of fish in the sea.
This, her journal entry, should have stayed in her journal, rather than getting published.
I write my thoughts down too, but I keep 'em under wraps, and so should have she.
This book is useless.
Waste not your time; I don't say money, because it's cheap, but your time, it can't be re-earned. There are plenty of good books here, on the same subject. Move on.

The genesis of this work is interviews Naura Hayden conducted with close to 500 women through which she learned that most had faked an orgasm during sex at some point in their lives, and that 60% of them faked orgasm every time they had sex. Hayden realized what these women, and their men - needed was not another fancy sex manual full of complicated positions, but a simple, straightforward work with real advice.

Play with her nipples; kiss her; rub her cunt with your dick - for a while; put it in, just the tip, as the saying goes; and-on-and-on you go, without ever quite fucking her, just tease her until she will be like - fuck me now or kill me. Then, and only then, when the really craves your dick in her cunt, you fuck her, and both of you will have the best fuck you've ever had, supposedly.
