Meet Mr. Smith by Eric & Leslie Ludy


I bought this book by accident at Tecman just last Saturday. I was purchasing "His Needs, Her Needs" for a friend in Hong Kong and as I was paying at the cashier, I was informed that there was a "Buy one get one free" promotion for Category D items. Meaning, the Dating Books Category.

After browsing through a few books, I decided on this because of the way it is written.

I read "God writes your love story" by the same authors and was deeply impacted by it.

And they do not disappoint. This book presents Sex in a different light. The book opens with Imposter Sex being confronted by Eric Ludy threatening to expose him. And then, he subsequently meets characters that would lead him to Great Sex.

I love how it is written in a conversational tone, using clever allegories not unlike A Pilgrim's Progress.

Well, for nothing else, if you'd like to discover God's plan for Great Sex, and if you've not been finding fulfillment in other means and methods you've tried so far, I'll guarantee you that this would be one great discovery.

A discovery of a lifetime!

Exuberance - The Passion for Life - Kay Redfield Jamison


I was walking through Page One at VivoCity last Sunday when I stopped at the Psychology shelves and picked up this book. The title caught my attention among all the other, more morbidly titled books in that section.

I flipped through the book to get a feel of the read. The Champagne of Moods in Chapter 5 was what I glanced through. It was pretty captivating, a description of the state of mania where it's feels like the a certain golden bubbly liquid.

It was one of the longest chapter, and I finished the book in a week, neglecting my black swan that I bought earlier on. Reading that chapter made me kind of exuberant as well. I could relate, just like the author said she could.

All in all, it was a pretty good read for someone who'd like to find out more about exuberance. I believe it should be the only way to live life - with passion and this book captures the spirit of it very well.

Please forgive this entry, it's been eons since I last wrote and I'm rusty...
