Why Love Seems So Elusive

Excerpted from Women Men Love, Women Men Leave: What Makes Men Want to Commit? By Connell Cowan, Dr. Melvyn Kinder For so many women today, men are confusing, even incomprehensible. They seem to operate according to a murky set of rules women have never quite learned. Victoria, 30, is a nurse at a big-city general hospital. She's ready to get married and start a family, but, like so many women today, she's baffled by men's behavior. "I help male

Most of us have very fond memories of these times. Think about how the two of you met, out of all the people in the world. When was the first time you saw each other? The first time you spoke?

Twenty-five years later, Flesch's follow-up book came out - Why Johnny Still Can't Read. The title says it all. Although words a

Excerpted from Nice Girls Just Don't Get It: 99 Ways to Win the Respect You Deserve, the Success You've Earned and the Life You Want By Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., Carol Frohlinger Look, life can be unfair. As we've already said, we don't always got to choose the people we have to deal with on a daily or weekly or yearly basis.

Beginnings

Excerpted from Through a Dog's Eyes By Jennifer Arnold Early one cool September morning when I was sixteen years old, I jumped out of my bed, headed for the bathroom. A split second after my feet hit the floor, my bottom followed. I knew I hadn't tripped or fallen over anything. When I tried to stand, I found that my legs would not hold me up. I remember feeling totally confused. What I didn't realize at the time and couldn't possibly know was that I'd just taken the fi

Excerpted from Every Man's Marriage: An Every Man's Guide to Winning the Heart of a Woman By Stephen Arterburn I don't know whether this is true in your part of the country, but in Southern California where I live, bagel shops and cell phone stores (and almost any business) will hire a guy to stand on the sidewalk and hold a sign advertising the store.

Transform Your Pregnancy into the Ultimate Style Statement

Excerpted from Bump It Up; Transform Your Pregnancy into the Ultimate Style Statement By Amy Tara Koch It's no secret that pregnancy doth not bring out one's inner glamour girl. Hormones flow, stomachs protrude, and once-clear complexions zigzag with "nonspecific dermatitis." Workouts are traded in for TiVo. A nondescript sack filled with Cheetos replaces the once-chic hobo. And fashion obsessions are usurped by fantasies of tucking into a vat of buttery mac and cheese.

Cancer: Coming to Terms with the Possibility of Death
