A debut collection of witty, biting essays laced with a surprising warmth, from Jen Mann, the writer behind the popular blog People I Want to Punch in the Throat
People I want to punch in the throat:
• anyone who feels the need to bling her washer and dryer
• humblebraggers
• people who treat their pets like children
Jen Mann doesn’t have a filter, which sometimes gets her in trouble with her neighbors, her fellow PTA moms, and that one woman who tried to sell her sex toys at a home shopping party. Known for her hilariously acerbic observations on her blog, People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Mann now brings her sharp wit to bear on suburban life, marriage, and motherhood in this laugh-out-loud collection of essays. From the politics of joining a play group, to the thrill of mothers’ night out at the gun range, to the rewards of your most meaningful relationship (the one you have with your cleaning lady), nothing is sacred or off-limits. So the next time you find yourself wearing fuzzy bunny pajamas in the school carpool line or accidentally stuck at a co-worker’s swingers party, just think, What would Jen Mann do? Or better yet, buy her book.

Advance praise for People I Want to Punch in the Throat
“People I Want to Punch in the Throat is so good that it’ll make you want to adopt all the cats in the world. I’m not sure about the correlation, but it’s that good. It should come with a warning.”—Jenny Lawson, author of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened
“Jen Mann has an amazing way of telling stories that will make you cringe and burst out laughing at the same time. From swinger parties to racist toddlers, she makes the suburbs unbelievably funny.”—Karen Alpert, author of I Heart My Little A-Holes
“Jen Mann says the things we’re all too afraid to say. Her honest and hilarious writing style reminds me of David Sedaris and Tina Fey.”—Robin O’Bryant, author of Ketchup Is a Vegetable: And Other Lies Moms Tell Themselves
“Jen Mann’s shrewd and unrelenting assault on the absurdity of suburban life is an honest peek into the occasional nightmare that is part of living the American dream. I love Jen. I wish she was my neighbor. It’s so refreshing to know that I’m not the only one who wants to punch almost everyone in the f***ing throat.”—Nicole Knepper, author of Moms Who Drink And Swear

From the Trade Paperback edition.
Our body language, or the way we use different parts of our bodies when we are in public, is a very important indicator of our mental state. Several experts have noted how we can read people‘s minds just by looking at their bodies. This is known as body language reading.
Now, you cannot do this too obviously. If you stare at a person‘s body, you are going to be labeled a leech! But, there are those subtle signs that people give out all the time, and it only takes you a split second to read them.
For instance, you could just look at the way a person moves their eyes when listening to you, or the way they hold their lips when talking. You could look at the stance of their arms and legs and the way they use their hands. These are all vital body language signs. It doesn‘t take you any time to read these signs, but they can tell you so much if you pay attention... and if you know what to look for.
This eBook is all about body language. It is an attempt to tell you of the various signs that people give out when they are reacting to you. By reading this eBook, you will be able to gain command over what‘s in people‘s minds.
If you think about it, there are so many ways in which this can prove immensely beneficial to you. Think of all the things you can do if you are able to delve into someone‘s mind. You will be able to understand what they are thinking and how they will react to you in the next minute! If you are soliciting someone with a business proposition, by being able to read what is in their mind, you could give them just the
thing they are looking for, even before their voice their apprehensions. You could put people at ease. If you are with your loved one, you could put their apprehensions to rest whenever they crop up.
Reading body language surreptitiously is a powerful tool of personal development itself. When you are able to keep everyone happy, people are going to consider you with greater regard. The confidence that that can instill in you is immense. It could help you become a better person, a person who can always be counted upon.
We are not saying that these methods of body language reading are infallible. There are exceptions, as always, and you will have to use your better judgment on some occasions.
Nevertheless, at the end of it all, these are signs that will work most of the time and in most of your interactions with people. This is the way people normally behave, and you will need to know how to weed out the exceptional reactions that might come your way.
In this EBook I will try to demonstrate different techniques of yoga. Especially if you have never tried it before then, this EBook will be the best thing to start with because I am going to tell you very basic techniques of yoga. If you want to define yoga then, you will come across different definitions by different people.
Some people say that it is reunion of outer winds with the inner body and some say that it is the way of getting inner peace. You will find one thing common in almost every yoga definition that they talk about inner peace and inner self in it. This is basic theme of yoga that you have to become familiar with your inner person.
The basic meaning of yoga is union and you can say that it unites your body, spirit and thoughts. There are so many techniques in this art of exercise and all of these techniques are considered very effective but you should start from basic because if you adopted some advanced technique from start then, it will become difficult for you and you will lose control over it.
All of these yoga exercises make you believe that you exist and you exist with lots of strength and courage. It allows you to gather all of that strength and courage and accomplish your goal in your life.
People who practice personal productivity also utilize yoga as a very effective technique to increase their focus. If you feel tiredness too often or you feel fatigue after a tiring day at office then, you must practice yoga and you will see a new change in yourself and your working ability will also be boosted.
Yoga originated from India and its surrounding regions but then, it spread throughout the world because it has a strong connection with spirituality and everyone wants to get closer to their inner self.
Getting to know you is difficult and especially in today’s artificial and superficial world, it is really difficult to live with yourself. You always have to go through family pressures and social pressures and you are forced to do things which you often do not like. Yoga allows you to ease all of those pressures and be very light internally.
Do you like coffee? No? Well, if you don’t I am sure you know at least one person that does?
Let me tell you a little story about a coffee company. A coffee company that almost missed their train of opportunity to grow and expand their business.
It all began about 40 years ago when three friends decided to start a coffee business. In this business they would cater to the American consumer and provide top notch gourmet roasted coffee beans.
Life was good! And their business was growing at a nice steady pace. Then one day they decided to hire a young Director of Operations and Marketing. This new guy brought, well, a new perspective to the three friends, and one day this new guy traveled to Milan. This was a trip that would change his young life forever!
While in Milan the young man was fascinated with the coffee shops that littered the streets and the culture that was centered around those coffee shops. Right then and there he knew this would be a huge success in America... So, what did he do?
He reported his findings to the three coffee shop owners. He explained the culture to the men, and how people bought their pre-brewed gourmet coffee in the shop... How they sat down to read the daily news and sip their cup of joe in the shop... And,well, how they just enjoyed the social and laid back atmosphere of the coffee shop. In fact, it was really a cafe setting.
What did the three owners think about this revolutionary idea? It won’t work. They believed that coffee was meant to be enjoyed in the peace and quiet of the home, and not at a local cafe.
Needless to say, those three men eventually sold their company to the young man, and that young man grew the revolutionary coffee cafe idea into over 17,000 stores in more than 55 countries. In fact, it’s a household name today.
What’s the company’s name? None other than Starbucks!
You see, Howard Schultz foresaw where the coffee industry was heading, and he saw to it that Starbucks would reap the benefits of this new trend.
The lesson? Businesses need to be aware of the different market trends and embrace them. This will promote growth which will ultimately promote new revenue streams.
Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s happening again. A new trend that is. And this is a trend which affects every business, and this means you, too!
What is this trend? It’s blogging. It’s social media. It’s customer relations in the 21st century. It’s being connected with your consumer, and engaging them.
You can be like the three old friends and sit down on the opportunity, and there’s nothing wrong with that. They grew a successful business providing their local market with freshly roasted gourmet coffee beans, but they lost out on an opportunity to take their business and brand to the next level.
Or you can be more like Schultz and follow the trends... You could go where the consumers are. And where are the consumer’s today? Online.
