Pretty Boy: The Life and Times of Charles Arthur Floyd

"This engaging biography exactly and vividly catches the tone of a region, a time, and a man."—Larry McMurtryFrom the best-selling author of Billy the Kid and Route 66, a true-life story of a notorious outlaw that magnificently re-creates the vanished, impoverished world of Dust Bowl America. Michael Wallis evokes the hard times of the era as he follows the life of Charles "Pretty Boy" Floyd from his coming of age, when there were no jobs and no food, to his descent into a life of petty crime, bootlegging, murder, and prison. Before long he was one of the FBI's original "public enemies." After a series of spectacular bank robberies he was slain in an Ohio field in 1934 at the age of thirty. Pretty Boy is social history at its best, portraying, with a sweeping style, the larger story of the hardscrabble farmers whose lives were so intolerably shattered by the Depression.

Seduction is one of the areas of life which has the potential to bring people the most pleasure and the most pain. If people are able to effectively move through life getting what they want and need out of romance and relationships then they are sure to be spared the pain of heartbreak and loneliness. If people are unable to master this area of existence then they set themselves up for disappointment and despair. Most people stumble through life, never taking conscious control of their seductive efforts, never figuring out exactly what it is that makes some people masters of seduction, and other people permanently alone and bitter. This book entitled Dark Seduction by Michael Pace represents the pinnacle of dark seductive knowledge which has been collected, tested and understood by the seduction community.

Some of the most devastatingly effective pickup techniques of all time are detailed within these pages. They may shock and surprise readers - but they may well seduce them at the same time. What follows is a practical, psychological and philosophical exploration of the topic of seduction, conducted from a dark perspective. It aims only to uncover the truth behind the secrets of seduction and present real, tried and tested information without any spin, gloss or romantic distortion.The book is not for the faint of heart or weak of mind. It is amoral and will shock many. Proceed with caution.

The Ultimate Guide To Lying: How to lie, spot liars, lie in official documents, get hidden information, train accomplices, use agents and more

Do you want to become a better liar or avoid being duped? From your workplace to your personal relationships, the courtroom to the police station, we're all lied to in our daily lives. I've had some very unique experiences while working for a multinational corporation- and I've seen how lies are put into official files, how organisations including the police can be manipulated, and how information is kept secret from targets and the press. I've also seen how innocent people are roped into this game. I'm drawing on nearly two decades' experiences for this book- the only how-to-lie book available in the world. This book tells you how to:Train people to become your accomplices and do your dirty work (including operating networks, passing false information to your enemies, lying for you)Trick your adversaries into revealing secret infoDeal with people in authority who treat you unfairlyWin court casesGet out of troubleLie to the police and manipulate them into working with youLie in official records and filesUse others as agents to lie for you or get information for youDefend against lies and tricksCreate and use networks to spread lies/get informationPlus 5 more chapters about lying tactics you can use, as well as preparing your lies and tips for lying in documentation, phone/skype and face to face.For a free sample of the ebook, check out my blog: https://ultimateguidetolying.wordpress.com/the-ultimate-guide-to-lying-free-sample/“Truth be told, this is the most thorough and meticulous analysis of this most common human vice that I have ever read. Compressed into its 50-odd pages, this booklet comprises the ins and outs of lying as an art form, a survival tactic, an organizing principle, and a game. Dazzling!”– Dr Sam Vaknin, author of Malignant Self Love and several other books and DVD lectures on narcissism and psychopaths, Editor in Chief of Global Politician and blogger on narcissists, psychopaths, and abuse.“Firenza Cole’s ‘The Ultimate Guide to Lying’ is one of those books that will subtly change the way you look at the world around you and your relationship to those you meet every day. The title is not a boast. The author systematically analyses the whole spectra of falsehood fabrication, exposing the tricks and techniques used to pull the wool over our eyes every day. And not just those employed by our ‘usual suspects’. As you read her amazing breakdown, you become aware of how you have seen the very same artifices applied in many facets of your existence. Some of it is familiar; other nuances are scary at times. I can also see a market for this tome far beyond what the author may have intended. As a writer of thriller fiction (some say a professional liar) its content will enable me to improve character dialogue, adding elements and shading in the way character deal with each other on the written page. Superb analysis, expertly presented.”– Eric J Gates, author of several thriller novels including Outsourced and former cybersecurity consultant.“This book is a very clinical and precise guide to the human instinct to deceive, the art of manipulation and the use of deliberate falsehoods to further commercial gain. Using the skill as a honed tool to achieve a specific purpose in business, personal relationships and with those in authority."-Sally G Cronin, author of Size Matters and several other books, blogger and nutritional therapist.“An original, quirky and informative book, that helps you avoid the cheats, or how to become a better one!”– Roger A. Price, retired National Crime Squad Detective Inspector and author of two crime thrillers, By Their Rules and A New Menace.
