Four friends manuever through toxic and terrifc relationships and come to terms with their troublesome views about women. Smart, successful, and sexy, Dorrian is a local club owner and promoter with serious commitment problems. He has dreams of one day putting a ring on the finger of a woman he deems worthy, but after years in the club business and count interactions with the party-girl types, Dorrian finds himself wondering if there is truly anyone who can live up to his standards.
Ant, a certified thug gigolo, has a skewed view of the opposite sex, due in large part to his un-trusting and unaffectionate mother. He often finds himself in need of women who can fill that void his mother left behind. Roshon, an upwardly mobile professional, is a devoted friend and father to his seven-year-old son, RJ. Although he loves his son with all his being, the total opposite rings true for his baby's momma. Dina is the true definition of hoodrat, and she is determined to make sure she gets her share of Roshon's new success. Carlos is a well-muscled womanizer who owns and operates his own barbershop. He is the proud father of four children, all by different women. He falls in love just as quick as he falls out of it. Follow these four childhood friends as they navigate the sometimes treacherous, sometimes triumphant relationships with the women in their lives.
Wealth Beyond Reason was written for those who have a strong desire for prosperity, and want it to come quickly and naturally. By taking a scientific approach to explaining the sometimes metaphysically-categorized "Law of Attraction", anyone of any background can claim the life they truly want to live, without limitations of any kind. Written with skeptics in mind, this book gives you a full understanding of nature's most prevalent physical law, and shows you precisely how to purposefully utilize it in the you were intended: To create 100% of your life experience, exactly as you most passionately desire!
Aquellos que acuden a la filosofía para que les guíe en su proyecto vital deben ser advertidos: sin duda el saber filosófico puede iluminar y hacer que la persona mejore, pero también puede desorientar, confundir y, a la postre, aniquilar. Ya lo dijo Descartes: «Las almas más grandes son tan capaces de los peores vicios como de las mayores virtudes». Lamentablemente, la vida de la razón no necesariamente conduce a una vida razonable... Este libro analiza los peligros y desvaríos de la filosofía a través de la vida de ocho filósofos de talla gigantesca: Rousseau, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Russell, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Sartre y Foucault. Con un tono agudo y desenfadado, muestra cómo el propio comportamiento del filósofo —unas veces incorrecto, otras ciertamente lamentable, y en ocasiones absolutamente demencial—, guarda con demasiada frecuencia una estrecha relación con sus teorías.
The perspective that a primatologist brings to an understanding of behavior is presented within an introductory framework. This well-known work establishes a comparative attitude, provides anecdotal examples of a primatologist at work, and stresses the importance of good research design and quantitative techniques. Anecdotal examples of primatologists at work are chosen to illustrate a field study (spider and howler monkeys) and experiences with a laboratory colony (snow monkeys in Texas). These discussions are designed to sensitize readers to the adventure, complexity, and some of the mechanics of actually doing primatology. The entire primate order is examined, and reader accessibility is enhanced by abundant photographs, illustrations, and an in-depth glossary.
Skills and experience might land you a leadership position, but they don't make you a true leader. Leadership comes from inside--and the greatest leaders first question themselves before they tackle the world around them.
To aid in this critical interrogation, The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership explores ideas from Aristotle, Heraclitus, Sophocles, Hesiod, and other great thinkers, including: * Know thyself * Do not waste energy on things you cannot change * Nurture community * Always embrace the truth * Let competition reveal talent * Live life by a higher code * Understand that character is destiny Then it shows you how to take each idea--along with what you've learned about yourself--and apply it to the challenges of the modern workplace. As Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great, you too will learn what it takes to conquer all.
