W

idely considered one of the nation’s leading experts on school bullying and peer abuse/pressure, Jodee Blanco, author of Please Stop Laughing at Me... is credited with inspiring a grassroots movement inside America’s schools. Referred to by many as “the anti-bullying bible,” Please Stop Laughing at Me... has set the standard in antibullying intervention and has defined itself as a modernday classic for students, parents, and teachers alike. In this timely update of her powerful bestseller, internationally acclaimed author and activist Jodee Blanco not only tells her moving story of childhood bullying, but also speaks about her continuing struggle to banish peer abuse. In an all-new Letter to My Readers, Readers’ Guide, and Resources Section, she offers the latest information on: • Cyberbullying, which affects 43 percent of teenagers (NCPC) • Her in-school anti-bullying program, INJJA (It’s NOT Just Joking Around!™) • The “Adult Survivor of Peer Abuse” • Where to go for help Plus honest—and inspiring—feedback from the readers she’s impacted.

—SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

This unflinching, unforgettable memoir does more than simply chronicle how one child was shunned—and even physically abused—by her classmates from elementary school through high school. It reveals the devastating effects bullying has not only on its victims, but also on the students, schools, and communities in which it occurs— effects that can last a lifetime. By revealing what it means to be the outcast, how even the most loving parents can get it all wrong, why schools are often unable to prevent disaster, and how bullying has been misunderstood and mishandled by the mental health community, Jodee Blanco raises a call to action, challenging readers to end peer abuse once and for all. This harrowing tale of survival against insurmountable odds will shock, move, and ultimately inspire readers, and most significantly, offer a lifeline for teens suffering from the tragic effects of peer abuse. It’s time we all take responsibility for the harsh realities and long-term consequences of bullying—Please Stop Laughing at Me... shows how all of us can make a difference, starting today.

The horror movie know-how fans will scream for • Scream Queens rule: More women watch horror movies than men (Entertainment Weekly) • Sure, readers might survive if they don’t buy this book—but with 900 horror fi lms released worldwide every year, why risk it? (PopMatters.com) • Release date timed to coincide with the impending horror movie season: Paranormal Activity 2, Saw VII, and Resident Evil: Afterlife are all scheduled to come out around Halloween

The Scream Queen’s Survival Guide avoid machetes, defeat evil children, steer clear of bloody dismemberment, and conquer other horror movie clichés ABout tHe AutHoR

Horror movie fans know: danger lurks around every corner, locker room, and strange new neighbor. And as every slasher addict knows, the last known survivor is always The Scream Queen.

meredith O’Hayre (Hanover, MA), was destined to be a fan of creepy movies—she grew up in the small New England town where The Witches of Eastwick was filmed. She has survived babysitting in a cemetery, taking young children through a corn maze, and trespassing on the grounds of an abandoned insane asylum.

In The Scream Queen’s Survival Guide, readers learn over 100 life-or-death lessons that Jamie Lee, Neve, and Jennifer Love learned on screen—without the pain of dismemberment. Readers owe to it themselves to master the scream queen’s rules of survival, including: • Be wary of days that begin “much like any other” (it’s all downhill from there) • Keep that playlist light (no one ever got axed while cuttin’ Footloose)

• Reconsider that roadtrip (or else end up at the mercy of a creepy tow truck driver) • Keep away from small-town law enforcement (the rent-a-cop always dies)

Memoir

In a galaxy far, far away…a geek was born

• the only Star Wars memoir that chronicles the Force’s impact on one young fan’s life • 2010 is the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars: Episode V— The Empire Strikes Back release • this humorous memoir of geek triumph over the Dark Side will appeal to the millions of Star Wars fans around the world

MY BEST FRIEND IS A WOOKIEE A MEMOIR

ONE BOY ’S JOURNEY TO FIND HIS PLACE IN THE GALAXY ABout tHe AutHoR

So begins the real-life hero’s journey of Jedi Knight wannabe Tony Pacitti. In this hilarious coming-of-age memoir, our hapless hero sees Star Wars for the first time at the age of seven—and is never the same again. The epic film becomes little Tony’s moral compass, mentor, even psychologist, helping him battle the Evil Empire wherever he finds it. He uses the Force to navigate the perils and pitfalls of childhood—from the bullies who badger him at the bus stop to the beautiful girl who mocks Obi-Wan and breaks Tony’s heart. Then George Lucas releases The Phantom Menace, and a disappointed Tony turns to the Dark Side of adolescence, falling in with stoners and Goths and numetalheads so lame even Jar Jar Binks would shun them. But the Force still lives in Tony, and ultimately the prequels lead him to a community of like-minded fans, where he learns to embrace his own geekiness. Armed with the sense of humor of Han Solo, the willpower of Luke Skywalker, and the wise attitude of a (much younger) Yoda, Tony grows into a man worthy of riding shotgun with a Wookiee.

assailants. Slowly, with my head down and my tail between

my legs, I walked home, picking clumps of mud out of my hair and wiping tears from my cheeks. What little self-

esteem I’d had was shattered on the corner of my street

like shards of a broken mirror, reflecting the laughing, loose-tooth faces of the jerks who had pelted me with filth.

I was seven years old, living in a new house in a new town, I had just been introduced to the rest of the guys in my

neighborhood by way of elementary-school guerrilla tactics. The friends I had were a half-hour car ride away. Given our inability to see each other and the fickle minds of

seven-year-olds, they felt as tangible as imaginary friends. It was a particularly sunny day, but unlike every other sunny day

since we had moved, Mom didn’t immediately point

at the door and force me to go back outside, where I would

inevitably fail at making friends. She could tell that something

was wrong, more wrong than usual. She decided to take my mind off my new-kid woes with a distraction: Star Wars.

What Are You Most Grateful For? Ricky Gervais says…Pajamas. I’ve started wearing pajamas out, because they’re more comfortable than trousers. (Laughs) I started out with jeans, then went to sweatpants about ten years ago. Now it’s just pajamas. I wore them to the White House. I’ve gone whole hog.

Dolly Parton says…Humble Roots. I think being brought up dirt poor left with me with a feeling of what it was like to go without, so I can relate when people are having a hard time. In my case, being a songwriter, I’m able to write not only for and about myself, but for what I know other people are feeling, even if they don’t always have the means to get their voices heard.

Anne Rice says…Clackety-Clack. My stepmother, who was a very practical, wonderful woman, took me into Dallas before I went into college to buy me a typewriter. She picked out this wonderful little portable one, black and white keys, and it was real fast. I still have it. I won’t give it up.

Jeff Bridges says…Creative People. Moviemaking is a collaborative art form. You bring all your stuff to the table, but you have to remain open to the impulses and ideas of other people. That’s where the rich stuff comes from. Not just in making movies, but in life, too.

Samuel L. Jackson says…The New Leaf. I used to wonder if I’d be funny or talented or cool anymore if I was sober. “I won’t be the life of the party anymore if I’m sober; no one will like me anymore if I’m sober.” But it’s this simple: I stopped doing the things I shouldn’t, and I started getting all the things I wanted.

Retail Hell

[Freeman is] a retail-centric Perez Hilton.” —Publishers Weekly

How i sold My soul to the store: Confessions of a Tortured sales associate

From Act I:“I think you left these behind,” I said, handing them to her. This happens all the time when women try to return bags they’ve used. Tampons, lipstick, coins, Tic Tacs, and condoms are the top treasures found. “Greasy” let out a sigh as if I were the problem. “I really don’t see what the problem is here. It’s none of your business what I keep in my handbag.” It is when my commission is at stake! I’m not your Designer Handbag Rental Service! This is a place Freeman Hall knows well. While delivering side-splitting stories alongside cynical commentary, Freeman recounts his most shocking experiences in Retail Hell—and in this paperback edition, readers get even more!

ABout tHe AutHoR Freeman Hall (Los Angeles, CA) began slaving in retail at the age of twenty at Macy’s. His most notable experience was with specialty clothing store Nordstrom, where he spent fifteen years as an award-winning handbag manager and salesperson. In 2007, he created the popular “Retail Hell Underground” blog and videos, generating a satirical sounding board for retail slaves worldwide.

Freeman Hall

From the time he was attacked by a customer’s four-year-old to the day he found the fitting room covered in s**t, Freeman has seen and heard (smelled and felt) it all! Horrifying and hilarious, this brutal look at what really goes on at the Big Fancy is rollicking, ready-to-wear wisdom for readers everywhere.

Where a Dobdob Meets a Dikdik a Word lover’s Guide to the Weirdest, Wackiest, and Wonkiest lexical Gems Bill Casselman

ABout tHe AutHoR

How many people know how to pronounce humhumunukunukuapuaa*? How many even know what it is?

Bill casselman (Ontario, Canada) is a leading etymologist who has published ten books on the origins of words and sayings, three of them bestsellers. He is also the author of a medical dictionary and numerous magazine and newspaper columns and articles. He is a columnist at Vocabula, the leading American online word magazine.

Bill Casselman does. Dictionary in hand, he leads readers along the highways and byways of English—the world’s wackiest, most widespread language. And those who follow will find their vocabularies replete with sesquipedalian vocables and chock-a-block with euphuistic lexemes of logorrheic. From dobdob to dikdik to the outer reaches of ning-nong and prick-me-dainty, in wide-ranging essays explaining hundreds of words and expressions, both common and obscure, Casselman revels in the strange, the surreal, and the mind-bogglingly weird. Readers are invited to rootle in odd words and to explore amusing anecdotes about familiar phrases (Who knows the origin of the sports phrase “hat trick”?) Readers will laugh along with Casselman as he celebrates the wonders, the complexities, and the absurdities of our amazing language. (*Incidentally, humhumunukunukuapuaa is a Hawaiian term that means “little trigger fish with a small nose like a pig.”) Ships: September Reference, Trade Paperback 5½ x 7½, 272 pages $13.95 (Canada $16.99) Rights: World Rights

106 Impossible Things Before Breakfast Brain-Boosting Techniques to Help you achieve the unachievable ABout tHe AutHoRS

Michael Laufer, PhD and John Nolan, MA

“Alice laughed. ‘One can’t believe impossible things.’ “‘I dare say you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen…‘Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.’” Lewis Carroll, Alice Through the Looking-Glass Could there be a knife that never dulls?

Here, Dr. Michael Laufer and John Nolan reply, “Of course!” Through these conundrums, they show how to unleash the creative energies of the brain to solve even the knottiest enigmas. For instance, one could reinterpret the problem, change the rules, or change the solution.

La Bella Vita Live and Love the Italian Way Aminda Leigh and Pietro Pesce

AbOuT ThE AuThOrS

Armani. Gianda De Laurentiis. Sophia Loren. The Leonardos (Da Vinci e DiCaprio).

Aminda Leigh (Rome, Italy) has worked as a journalist for almost twenty years. Her romance with Italy began when she started to visit Rome on a regular basis in the 1990s. In 2001, after working at the BBC for twelve years, she took a sabbatical and try living in Rome, where she is now permanently based.

From fettucine to fashion and back again, nobody does La Bella Vita like the Italians. Whether preparing a meal, sculpting the David, or seducing a lover, Italians take their time, and do it right! In this bellissimo primer, Romans Aminda Leigh and Pietro Pesce show readers how to achieve that sensual perfection in everything they do, leading them on a journey through the five senses: Sight (vista): Toss the shabby, shapeless clothes! Italians take meticulous care of their appearance and are always fashionable. Sound (udito): Act like an Italian; emphasize the positive whenever possible. Touch (tatto): Touch like Italians do—double-kiss, hold hands, and gesticulate! Smell (olfatto): Take a ride on an Italian motorbike and pay attention to the scents of your environment—the sea air, a coffee shop, a flower garden… Taste (gusto): Don’t inhale a heavy dinner; savor a leisurely home-cooked meal!

Pietro Pesce (Rome, Italy) is a professional photographer. He moved to Rome when he was not quite two years old and considers himself a Romano through and through. He currently works in Italian cinema.

La Bella Vita is the crash course in Italian living every Italophile can indulge in, pronto!

The illustrated primer every dog needs!

• The only illustrated manual that helps dogs accomplish—and get away with—just about anything! • The number of mail carriers bitten by dogs every year has decreased by more than half in the last twenty-fi ve years; the dogs obviously need new tactics (National Canine research Council) • 52 percent of dog owners are still less attached to their dogs than to their coffee, cars, cell phones, and (human) best friends; brilliant dogs are likely to change their minds (DogChannel.com)

Physics for Dogs A Crash Course in Catching Cats, Frisbees, and Dinner John-Andrew Sandbrook; Foreword by Pepper Sandbrook-Flynn, PhD

Old dogs may have trouble with new tricks, but now canine brainiacs can use the laws of physics to master their corner of the universe. Complete with technical illustrations, graphs, and formulas, Physics for Dogs shows dogs how to: • Bring down the mailman with the correct ratio of stealth and brute force • Poop strategically—indoors and out—by understanding variable-mass systems • Open any cupboard with Newton’s First Law • Play fetch by calculating velocity and maximum range • Catch squirrels by accounting for friction, weight, and air resistance • And much, much more! With this hilariously prescriptive how-to, pooches of every size and temperament will learn to chase cars—and catch them!

White people might like stuff, but gay people dislike stuff! • White people and hipsters have had their moment in the spotlight—now it’s the gays’ turn! • Stuff White People Like has sold 171,000 copies since its release in August 2008 • Publishers Weekly compared Freeman to Perez hilton. Who’s bitchier than that? • Adams’ humor titles have a great track record, grossing more than 150,000 copies in 2009!

Stuff that Makes a Gay Heart Weep A Definitive Guide to the Loud & Proud Dislikes of Millions AbOuT ThE AuThOr

There’s nothing they hate more than bad home décor, cheap vodka, and men who take off their shirts but shouldn’t (especially when those things happen all at once!). They believe they’re unique, yet somehow they’re all exactly the same, complaining about Prop 8 and lamenting the sad fact that Bradley Cooper is straight. A day without Bravo TV, disco music, frantic texting, and just the right designer clothes makes them want to off themselves.

Freeman Hall (Los Angeles, CA) has a huge gay heart and has waited his whole life to sound off on the stuff that makes it weep. Author of an acclaimed memoir of his experiences toiling in Retail Hell, he now spends his days running four popular blogs and dogwalking his neighbor’s adorable canines. His weeping gay heart should in no way be confused with a lyric in a country ditty (though many of them do make it weep).

Well, it’s not quite that extreme, but it’s definitely Stuff that Makes a Gay Heart Weep. In this laugh-out-loud guide to the dislikes of millions, the author shows in 150 succinct entries that it’s just not fair for Caucasians to have all the fun! Readers are invited to kick back, pour themselves a Ketel One on the rocks, and get lost in the bitchiest bitch-fest west of the West Village and this side of the Castro.

JUNE 8: Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day

There’s this little children’s book (that must be out of print as I’ve never been able to find it again), in which the character has a really pointy head, and to conceal it he wears a hat made out of doughnuts! I often wish I had the same problem so I could wear a snack-hat of colorful squishy doughnuts whenever I wanted to. I’m not talking about day-old doughnuts, either. I’m talking about soft, still-warm doughnuts that cost just pennies on the dollar. Make this recipe and fill them with your favorite jelly, or even peanut butter and jelly! They’re best served warm with an ice-cold glass of milk.

PB&J Doughnuts 5 tbsp warm water (about 90 degrees)

⅓ cup unsalted butter (soft)

3½ tbsp fresh yeast

1 tsp salt

2 cups powdered sugar

Several cups of oil for deep-frying

6 cups flour

2–3 cups of your favorite jam, jelly, marmalade, or preserves

3 eggs (at room temp) 1½ cups whole milk (warm)

2 cups smooth peanut butter (optional)

1. Combine the water with the yeast until dissolved, and 1 tbsp of the sugar and ½ cup of the flour in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to allow the yeast to rise for 10 minutes. 2. In a separate bowl, sift remaining flour and powdered sugar, then combine with eggs, milk, butter, and salt. In an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, combine until it forms a dough.

COOK’S NOTE It’s easier to simply dust these with powdered sugar instead of the crafty “put-the-doughnuts-in-a-bag-withpowdered-sugar, close-bag-and-shake” method. Since they are filled with jelly you’ll just end up with a big, gooey mess!

3. Add the yeast mixture and continue to combine. If the dough is really sticky, add a little more flour until it hardly sticks to your hands. Cover with plastic again and allow that to rise for 1 hour, undisturbed. 4. When ready to make the doughnuts, bring 5–6 cups of oil to 350°F in a large stockpot (use a thermometer to make sure it stays at this temperature). 5. On a floured work surface, pat down the dough until it is 1 inch thick. Use a 2–3 inch ring cutter to cut your doughnuts (don’t cut a ring in the middle—remember we’re stuffing these). 6. Fry until golden, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the doughnuts from the oil and place on paper towels to drain and cool. 7. Using a chopstick (or something similar), prick a hole in the doughnut for the filling. Scoop the jam in a piping bag and fill each doughnut with as much jam as you want! Add peanut butter in the same way. 8. Dust with powdered sugar on both sides before serving.

Planning Your Wedding Sucks What to do when place cards, plus ones, and paying two grand for a cake make you miserable AbOuT ThE AuThOrS

Joanne Kimes and Elena Donovan Mauer

Bling. Flowers. Tulle. The three things that every little girl dreams of when she pictures her wedding day. What she doesn’t consider is the stuff of nightmares: Overdrawn checking accounts. Drunk relatives. The seating chart that looks like a road map. In Planning Your Wedding Sucks, Joanne Kimes and Elena Donovan Mauer expose the tedious (and often traumatic) tasks that really go into pulling off a wedding. From dealing with overbearing mothers-in-law and making time for their lovable, but clueless, fiancés to suffering through endless alterations and meetings with the con artists known as “vendors,” there’s a lot that brides need to know. After all, a wedding is supposed to be something brides look forward to—not something they have to endure before the honeymoon!

Elena Donovan mauer (New Jersey) has written for more than twenty bridal publications, including The Knot, Brides. com, and Modern Bride. She’s a former editor at Bridal Guide and coauthor of The Good Girl’s Guide to Living in Sin and Have Sex Like You Just Met. She and her husband—who had two wedding celebrations—recently welcomed their first child, a beautiful baby boy. Joanne Kimes (Studio City, CA) is the creator and series editor of the bestselling Sucks series. She has been happily married since 1997.

Armed with Kimes’ trademark, no-holds-barred humor, Donovan Mauer’s bridal industry know-how, and copious amounts of wine, brides-to-be will get through the stress of planning their weddings with style, humor, and grace.

WTF? Women How to Survive 101 of the Worst F*#!-ing Situations with the Ladies Gregory Bergman and Jodi Miller

AbOuT ThE AuThOrS

Your wingman refuses to jump on a grenade. During sex, your girlfriend calls out her ex’s name. Your wife went from having a sweet ass to a fat ass. And all you can think is…WTF?

Gregory Bergman (Los Angeles, CA) is the creator of the WTF? series and a standup comedian. He is married and recently celebrated his fourth anniversary. Or as he likes to call it: “Oh, you again…I mean, YAY!”

It’s the one topic that pisses men off yet keeps them coming back for more— women. From hookups to breakups, this book handles the most f*#!-ed-up scenarios men face with the fairer (and far more confusing) sex. It’s the perfect relationship manual for men, as it ditches the Dr. Phil advice and gives actual (if not always appropriate) assistance during the shittiest of dilemmas.

Jodi miller (Los Angeles, CA), a comedian, is thrilled to be a part of the WTF? series, mainly because she is hoping to get more tail. Miller is currently very single and still has a cat…WTF?!

Whether he’s striking out or getting down, married, engaged, or can’t even get past the first date—this book provides a much-deserved laugh whenever the woman in his life has him saying, “what the f*#!?”

Biography/Memoir

A one-of-a-kind memoir of one boy’s survival and triumph during the Holocaust • The true story of a small Jewish boy, his determined mother, and their heartbreaking—and ultimately triumphant—struggle to elude the Nazis in war-torn Europe • An unusual story in which fate, faith, and the kindness of strangers help Eric and his mother avoid the terrible fate suffered by 8 million Jews, their own family among them • World War II remains of critical interest and importance to the American public, as evidenced by the success of such recent fi lms as Inglourious Basterds, a WWII movie about Jewish-American soldiers; Defiance, a story about Jewish brothers during WWII; Ken burns’ The War; and hbO’s The Pacific • Author is a popular speaker on the Jewish book club circuit

A Childhood, Il Confino The True Story of a Jewish Boy and His Mother in War-torn Italy Eric Lamet AbOuT ThE AuThOr

Eric Lamet was only seven years old when the Nazis invaded Vienna—and changed his life and the lives of all European Jews forever. Five days after Hitler marches, Eric Lamet and his parents flee for their lives. His father goes back to his native Poland—and never comes back. His mother hides out in Italy, on the run from place to place, taking her son deeper and deeper into the mountains to avoid capture.

Eric Lamet (Tamarac, FL) moved to the United States from Italy in 1950. A retired businessman, he is fluent in several languages, has taught Italian, and has served as an interpreter for the State Department.

In this remarkable feat of memory and imagination, Lamet recreates the Italy he knew from the perspective of the scared and lonely child he once was. We not only see the hardships and terrors faced by foreign Jews in Fascist Italy, but also the friends Eric makes and his mother’s valiant efforts to make a home for him. In a style as original as his story, the author vividly recalls a dark time yet imbues his recollections with humor, humanity, and wit. Very few Holocaust memoirs address the plight of Jews sent into internal exile in Mussolini’s Italy. Lamet offers a rare and historically important portrait, one the reader will not soon forget.

Parenting

An essential translation tool for parents of teens • This is the fi rst and only book that teaches parents to speak—and understand—the language of teenagers • Communication is key to healthy interactions between parents and teens—the better the communication, the better decisions teens make (The Center for Missing and Exploited Children) • The authors are acclaimed psychologists who specialize in young people and Dr. barbara Greenberg actively consults for national media, including The New York Times and Teen Vogue

Teenage as a Second Language A Parent’s Guide to Becoming Bilingual Barbara R. Greenberg, PhD and Jennifer A. Powell-Lunder, PsyD

AbOuT ThE AuThOrS

What are parents to do when their cheerful, friendly family members morph overnight into sarcastic, sullen teens? How can they get through to these hormonally challenged strangers when all they get in return are sighs and eyerolls?

Barbara r. Greenberg, PhD (Westchester County, NY), has a doctorate in clinical psychology from SUNY at Stony Brook, and is the clinical director of Four Winds Hospital in New York, where she takes care of an inpatient adolescent unit, and maintains a private practice.

Thankfully, Teenage as a Second Language reveals the groundbreaking strategies parents can use to maintain good communication, healthy interaction, and strong connections to their teens, no matter how rocky the road to puberty becomes. Parents learn how to: • Let their teens help set the rules—and the consequences for breaking them • Put honesty above all else

• Realize that “me, me, me!” is actually age-appropriate • Try not to criticize, judge, or become angry

Jennifer A. Powell-Lunder, PsyD (Fairfield County, CT), has a doctorate in school/clinical child psychology from the University of Virginia and is presently the clinical director for the Child and Adolescent Outpatient programs at Four Winds Hospital in New York.

Based on the latest research, this book works as a Rosetta Stone to help readers hear what their kids are really saying—and makes sure nothing is lost in translation!

She is the master of her enemy’s fate!

• Applies the time-tested principles of The Art of War for women in the workplace • Women represent 40 percent of the global workforce but make up less than 15 percent of corporate executives worldwide (Harvard Business Review) • Adams’ bestselling Sun Tzu series has sold 250,000 copies to date

Sun Tzu for Women The Art of War for Winning in Business Becky Sheetz-Runkle

AbOuT ThE AuThOr

For twenty-five centuries, men have used Sun Tzu’s classic The Art of War as a guide to conflict. In recent years, it’s been a guide to climbing the corporate ladder. But Sun Tzu for Women shows that there are more paths to winning than frontal assault. Women can learn from the ancient Chinese strategist how to apply the feminine principle to the business world—and win every time.

Becky Sheetz-runkle (Washington, D.C.) is cofounder and vice president of client services at Q2 Marketing. She is also a regular contributor to the Technology MarketingBlog. A 9th Degree Black Belt in Sho Bushido Ryu Jujitsu, she holds black belt ranks in three other martial arts.

Whether it’s relying on networking skills to win allies or maneuvering to gain a decisive advantage, the author shows through dozens of case studies from prominent women in business how to overcome the odds, defeat opponents, and forge successful careers. The tenets of Sun Tzu lend themselves to women’s natural strengths in diplomacy and relationship-building. With this interpretation, women warriors learn to leverage these valuable assets to trump their male colleagues every time.

The Art of War for Dating Win over Women Using Sun Tzu’s Tactics Eric Rogell, the voice behind TheBachelorGuy.com

About thE Author

For centuries, man has studied the ancient art of war before heading into battle— obsessively planning, strategically theorizing, and meticulously executing. If only he did that before trying to pick up women.

Eric rogell is the voice behind TheBachelorGuy.com, the go-to resource for everyday men who want to elevate above Neanderthal status without going so far as applying moisturizer before bed. Rogell, a lifelong martial artist and instructor, has read several translations of Sun Tzu’s ancient text. And when it comes to women, he’s well versed in the art of the pick-up. He’s a decorated veteran of the dating war and has actually been captured by the enemy—twice. (Though he escaped both times.)

Just as they turn to Sun Tzu’s honored text for military guidance, men can sharpen their dating skills by adapting the good general’s advice. But since every guy hitting the bar on Saturday night isn’t a seasoned warrior, The Art of War for Dating has done the heavy lifting. By dissecting Sun Tzu’s original text, extracting his core wisdom, and applying it to picking up women, this book teaches men how to win the battle of the sexes. A woman might not be an enemy to conquer—but she is a prize to win over.
