In this how-to guide, self-help guru Michael Losier details the secret to achieving your goals, be they professional, personal, or romantic. To put it simply, the Law of Attraction is the concept that we attract the same energy that we put out into the world. Therefore, if we exude negative energy—or negative vibrations—we unconsciously invite negativity into our lives; conversely, positive vibrations attract positivity. By following Losier’s Three-Step Formula for Deliberate Attraction, you can learn how to increase your positive vibrations to achieve success at work, increase your wealth, and even attract your ideal mate.

Gray breaks down these differences chapter-by-chapter and aims to teach readers how to find common ground, even when their partners seem extraterrestrial.

We’ve all heard of pickup artists: men who claim to specialize in seducing women, often through unsavory means like lying and trickery. Mark Manson’s book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, is the antithesis of the classic pickup artist’s shady repertoire. In this dating book for men, Manson argues that the best way to attract—and yes, seduce—women is by being honest, authentic, and mature. Women are most drawn to men who establish an emotional connection with them, men who are self-confident and genuine—not men who lie and manipulate others. Manson’s simple and straightforward advice can help men reduce their dating anxieties, learn to be better conversationalists, and kick out-dated pickup habits to the curb for more success on the dating scene.
