The behavioral scientist author of Just the Way You Are presents a provocative argument that the quality of one's life is directly related to the focus of one's attention, drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology to cover such topics as the human capacity for training concentration, the ways in which the creative mind thinks, and why people deliberate on the wrong factors when making big decisions.

An erotic contemporary tale from Bestselling author Laurel Cremant. Jessica Sinclair has spent the last year tiptoeing around her new boss Lucas Wright. She wants him and he knows it, but she has no intention of giving into temptation. She's always enjoyed a little pain with her pleasure, but she never thought denial could feel so good. Every meeting drives her to a sexual edge and yet they've never shared a simple kiss. Resisting him has become a delicious game. Lucas Wright has enjoyed playing the waiting game with Jessica. The sadist in him enjoys every quip and parry they share. But every man has his limits and he's officially reached his. He'd never thought that he would find his perfect match in a woman as stubborn as Jessica, but every teasing encounter has convinced him it's time to put an end to their games and show her just how sweet surrender can be.

“Rapt in Secret Studies”: Emerging Shakespeares is a collection of new essays in Shakespeare Studies from a generation of scholars presently emerging out of Australia and New Zealand. These 18 essays respond in a myriad of ways to the challenge of Prospero’s phrase from The Tempest, in which he tells his daughter Miranda that in his life before the island he had been “rapt in secret studies”-to an early modern audience, these words were likely to mean much more than a predilection for the black arts, as modern audiences tend to hear in them. Each of the key words used by Prospero evoked a range of meanings in early modern times, to which the emerging scholars represented in this collection responded by imagining new pathways in Shakespeare Studies, a field of study that has in recent times risked being marginalised even within the traditional liberal arts. The “secret studies” of which Prospero speaks are, in fact, more liberal than dark, and so the response by new scholars to a challenge issued by one of Shakespeare’s characters more than four centuries ago has a renewed sense of relevance in the academy today. The essays are divided into three sections, each of which is oriented toward meanings that are specifically associated with one of the key terms in Prospero’s phrase. The “rapt” section has essays concerned with excess in its various forms-jealousy, obsession, sex, violence, and even death-as well as with travel and its impact on ways of knowing about the world. In the “secret” section, the nature of things about which the early modern could scarcely speak are taken into consideration, with essays on prevailing early modern myths, infidelities, stillborn children, contagion, and the instruments of secrecy such as gossip and spies. Finally, in the “study” section, essays cover issues related both to early modern textual practice-the use of historical source materials in Shakespeare’s writing, questions of multiple authorship, and the issue of early modern style and kinds of drama-and to more modern scholarly practice, such as the role of Shakespeare in the New Bibliography and the New Historicism.

A true-life tale of the paranormal unlike any you have read before On the 25th June 2004 I, a devout agnostic and sceptic of all things ‘paranormal’ was forced to accept that I may have a poltergeist in my home in Vietnam! To say I found that weird would be the understatement of the century but with hindsight I can say that the weirdest thing of all was that the poltergeist-like activity I experienced that night was just the beginning of the most incredible story and things would get a whole lot weirder in the days and months to come! I know that many will find my story just too unbelievable to possibly be true, and as a lifelong sceptic myself I can completely understand that. I give my word that every part of this story is true however I realise that, as a complete stranger, my word is worth very little to you, but if you choose to consider my book as merely an imaginative work of fiction I trust that you will still find it an interesting, entertaining and thought provoking read.
