Dare

What happens when fantasies come true

By Tracey Cox

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

Sex and relationships expert, TV presenter and multi-million-copy-selling author of Hot Sex and Super Sex, Tracey Cox brings us the true-life stories of women who have taken their erotic fantasies one step further into reality.

Just about everyone has sex fantasies - and there are lots of reasons why. In fantasy land, there are no rules and you are in charge of the action. But there's a second type of fantasy - one that won't leave your head and which the truly adventurous want to see through to reality with consequences they can't always foresee.

This book, by sex expert Tracey Cox, is about both types of fantasies: what women dream about - and what happens when they dare to take what existed perfectly in their heads into the stark (sometimes funny, or awful, or thrilling) reality of their beds.

Here are women's most incredible and intimate secrets laid bare.

A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, rock bottom was a familiar place to Glennon. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life. Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how internalizing our culture's standards of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for men and women to ever really know one another - and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they've been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, fall in love.Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring tale of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.

Do It Tomorrow and Other Secrets of Time Management

Mark Forster
Authors:
Mark Forster

Mark Forster's book "Get Everything Done and Still Have Time to Play" took an entirely new approach to time management. One of his most important points was that once we have taken on a commitment, prioritising does not work because we need to do everything relating to that commitment. In the six years since he wrote the book as he has reached thousands of people through writing, seminars and coaching, he has continued to develop and refine his methods . He has now perfected even more effective methods of getting everything done through the introduction of some radical new ideas, including closed lists, the manyana principle and the "will do" list. He is brilliant at helping people to use new forms of communication effectively so that they do not become a tyrant. The result is a complete system which will enable almost anyone to complete one day's work in one day.

Yesterday I used his system for a whole day. It was stress-free and fun. I felt energised and satisfied at the end of it.'Sarah Litvinoff
