One Part Woman by , Summary

A vibrant fable of marriage, caste and social convention from a major Indian writer Kali and Ponna are perfectly content in their marriage, aside from one thing, they are unable to conceive. As their childlessness begins to attract local gossip and family disapproval, they try everything from prayers to potions, but none of the offerings or rituals helps. Increasingly unhappy and desperate, they consider a more drastic plan: the annual chariot festival, a celebration of the half-male, half-female god Maadhorubaagan. For one night, the rules of marriage are relaxed, and consensual sex between unmarried men and women is overlooked, for all men are considered gods. But rather than bring them together, this scheme threatens to drive the couple apart. Selling over 100,000 copies in India, where it was published first in the original Tamil and then in this celebrated English translation, One Part Woman has become a cult phenomenon in the subcontinent, jump-starting conversations about caste and female empowerment. Tender, deeply poignant, and bitingly critical, One Part Woman is a powerful exploration of a loving marriage under strain. Perumal Murugan is an Indian author and professor of Tamil literature. He has written six novels and four collections each of short stories and poetry. His best-known novel One Part Woman, highly controversial in India, won the ILF Samanvay Basha Samman, and Aniruddhan Vasudevan's English rendering won the Translation Prize from India's National Academy of Letters.

Power Up Your Mind by Bill Lucas Summary

Grow your own talent! Bill Lucas, a leading international expert on life-long learning, shows that while we have learned more about how the brain works in the last decade than we have ever known, only a fraction of this is grasped and applied by most people. Power Up Your Mind applies this practical knowledge for the first time and shows you how to learn. Drawing on research from a wide variety of subject areas, from neuroscience to psychology, from motivation theory to accelerated learning, from memory to diet, this book shows how everyone has the capacity to succeed and how most people use only a very small portion of their talents. For learning to be effective, an understanding of how the brain works is essential and unlike most of the recent thinking on the mind, Lucas connects an understanding of the brain with the reality of the workplace and translates what we know about the brain into useful insights for work. Much work-based training is a waste of time and money because the majority of people are neither emotionally ready nor practically inclined to apply their learning to the way they behave. Power Up Your Mind offers a new model of learning - READY, GO, STEADY - which will revolutionize the way you learn and perform.

Elegance by Kathleen Tessaro Summary

An enchanting, bittersweet novel for every woman who has ever longed for a fairy godmother. Louise Canova should be happy and in love. But her actor-husband seems to be growing distant and she doesn’t know why. Is it her fault? Riddled with uncertainty, the insecurity she thought she’d left behind in adolescence comes back to haunt her. But when she discovers a faded volume entitled ELEGANCE in a second-hand bookshop, she believes she’s found the answers. Written by the formidable French fashion expert, Madame Dariaux, ELEGANCE is an encyclopedia of style that promises to transform plain women into creatures of grace and poise at all times. And from Accessories to Zippers, there’s nothing Madame can’t advise upon - including inattentive husbands, false friends, and the absolute importance of good quality, seductive lingerie. Louise vows to follow Madame’s advice but the lessons she learns have a surprising affect and an outcome she never expected. Within its pages lie clues to her past. And as she begins to unravel them, she discovers that everything, even elegance, has its price. Starting with A and finishing with Z, ELEGANCE is a unique alphabetical journey of timeless fashion, true friendship, and the rare, unexpected gift of love.
