Have you had enough of putting your own needs and desires on the back burner while you try to fulfill those of someone else? Here's the reality of the situation: dating is not about trying to make things work, and it's not about putting off the things you want. What dating is all about is finding the person who is the best match for you. The problem is that too many people aren't willing to get naked, that is, to be honest with themselves and with their prospective mates.

In this informative book, dating expert David Wygant takes you on a journey that will change your life forever. David will help you conquer your relationship fears and insecurities once and for all and attract the kind of people you want to meet, date, and build long-term relationships with. Being single and dating means that you have the freedom to meet the right person, and the power to finally get it right. Being single can be the most amazing adventure if you're willing to reveal the real you-both to yourself and to others. Within these pages, you will discover how to use the Law of Attraction in dating to your advantage, how to speak from your heart, how to understand exactly what you want out of life, and how to communicate honestly-with yourself and with your mate.

Download and read online I Can See You Naked in PDF and EPUB This may be the best piece of advice in this book: When something strikes you as funny, don't let it get away. Hold on to it for dear life. It could be gold. My theory is this: Everything that strikes you as funny is going to turn up on television some day. I'll just give you this one example—because it relates directly to the book you're reading. For as long as I can remember, I've always thought that the old idea of visualizing an audience naked, as a way to control nervousness, was a funny sort of notion. It just struck me funny. I mean, it's not one of those ideas that flits in and out of your mind. It sticks. And it asks for some kind of response. So, I made it the title of a book on presentations. I Can See You Naked. Need I tell you what happened next? The idea spread across the networks like a giggle through a classroom. Millions upon millions of people are howling their heads off about this quirky notion of speakers talking to naked audiences. It's hilarious. Dynamite. A TV writer's dream come true. Then, amidst the laughter, a question hit me: Had my book unleashed all of this hilarity? Surely not. But how many speakers would now visualize their next audience in a state of dishabille? I shuddered to think of it. If you're a presenter, a naked audience is not going to improve your concentration. Eye contact is going to be a real problem for you. And you're going to be very self-conscious about that $600 designer suit you're wearing. This was all dutifully explained in I Can See You Naked—the first edition. But something told me it was time for new emphasis. Even with the relaxed morality that pervades our TV sets and movie screens, there remains a statement that must be resaid: Never speak to a naked audience. It can be distracting. There are all kinds of other psychological exercises that can be tapped to rid yourself of nervousness in the face of an awaiting audience. One woman even wrote to tell me that Chapter 13, which starts, "It's the night before your big presentation" enabled her to keep her sanity. Can you imagine? I considered changing the title of the book to reflect that thought, then decided that a promise of sanity was probably more that I could deliver—times being what they are. As with the first edition, this expanded edition is dedicated to helping you be a better presenter. But it is also dedicated to candor, to saying things that—for one reason or another—never show up in other books on presentation. Who else would tell you "to keep an eye out for the barracuda?" (Chapter 51). Who else would tell you that "you may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time?" (Chapter 17). Who else would employ the Mafia to give you a pointer or two on presentations? (Chapter 31). In short, this is a very different book on presentations. It's even different from the first edition of I Can See You Naked, which still strikes me as a funny notion, great for sitcoms—but now there are other things to laugh about, look at, learn from, and try as you get ready to make your next presentation.

Download and read online The Naked Badge in PDF and EPUB On a balmy April morning in 1954, James Moore was sworn in as a member of the Toledo Police Academy’s twelfth cadet class and began what would eventually become a twenty-six-year career with a police force intent on fiercely protecting the citizens of its beloved city. The Naked Badge shares powerful, hard-hitting anecdotes of the realities of Toledo, Ohio, law enforcement that took place from 1950s to the 1970s. With from-the-heart honesty that at times reads like fiction, Moore provides a compelling glimpse into a time when formal training was minimal and outdated; there were no such things as computers, portable radios, bulletproof vests, or air-conditioned vehicles; pay was minimal; and officers worked a forty-eight-hour week. While revealing the stark vulnerabilities of rookie patrolmen, Moore shares real-life cases that disclose his own failures and shortcomings as his career takes him from a patrolman assigned to walking beats in the toughest sections of the city to a veteran captain who prided himself on treating everyone fairly. The Naked Badge offers an enlightening and entertaining look into the intriguing world of police work during a period of great change in America.

Download and read online I Knew I Was Naked in PDF and EPUB An earthy, literate read—laced with a strong dose of humor—awaits the reader in I Knew I Was Naked. Authored by Sean Lacey, this fiction-adventure is the window to a unique American boyhood that will amuse and inspire. Set during the Great Depression and World War II, the language of the novel recaptures the time. This is the story of Sean Lacey, an American boy of Irish descent. Sean is shy, shy about a body ahead of his age. In the 1930s, grown-ups and bullies have no truck with boy-modesty. The tale begins when Sean is five and follows his trials a year at a time. The plot takes a turn at age thirteen when Bryan O'Neill—Sean's near-opposite and self-appointed older brother—adds a new dimension. But trouble has a way of worming itself in. Bryan's loyalty never wavers, but Sean is tested to the breaking point and beyond. In the end, like all good books, I Knew I Was Naked is a love story—not your everyday love story—that the surprising conclusion unfolds.

Download and read online Naked in Da Nang in PDF and EPUB FACs (forward air controllers) in Vietnam flew low and slow, searching for signs of an elusive enemy. Often they trolled themselves as bait for the NVA troops to try to shoot down. When a friendly unit made contact, having a FAC overhead made their day because the FACs controlled the bomb-, rocket-, and napalm-laden fast movers, fighter jets and attack aircraft whose ordnance often made the difference between life and death. They were regarded by many of their airforce and naval aviator brethren as insane, suicidal, or both. In addition to the perils of enemy fire which ranged from lucky AK-47 shots to .51 caliber machine guns and SA-7 shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles, you had to watch out to keep from being blown up in a B-52 Arc-Light strike or knocked down by friendly artillery. As the title suggests, however, Naked in Da Nang is not an angst ridden account of mortal combat. Following in the footsteps of Richard Hooker's classic M*A*S*H: A Novel About Three Army Doctors, author Jackson has a keen eye for the absurdities that abound in a combat zone. That the humor is often dark only serves to sharpen its comic edge.- These pilots were considered the "Guardian Angels" of the Vietnam ground soldier- Refers to the "unarmed" nature of FAC (Forward Air Controllers) aircraft- Low-tech aircraft that survived combat on pilot skills only
