Boys Lie

by Belisa Vranich

Guys Can Be Dogs . . .

So consider this book the ultimate BS detector. In today's hookups without-heart society, this brutally honest guide reveals the most common lies boys tell and the truths behind them so you and your friends can separate the good guys from the bad.

'Everyone else is doing it.' 'I won't show anyone these pictures.' 'If we get pregnant, we could take care of it on our own.' Lies like these get lots of girls in trouble, especially when they cast aside their doubts and make poor choices in the heat of the moment. Written by psychologist Belisa Vranich and former Seventeen magazine editor Holly Eagleson, this provocative book sets the record straight with a 'cheat sheet' on what guys lie about, why they lie, and how you can respond. By learning how to react before embarrassing or volatile situations arise, you will be more confident and more likely to enjoy healthier, honest, and more fulfilling relationships.

Lie #8: I can't wear a condom.

Lie #2: Guys are built to cheat.

Lie #17: I'll love you forever.

Lie #3: You're a slut if you've had sex with lots of guys.


Yes, boys lie. But now you and your friends have the anti-get-played book.

Get a Grip

by Dr. Belisa Vranich

There are a million reasons why we put off therapy, but Dr. Belisa would like to suggest an alternate solution: self-examine. In her new book, Get a Grip, the acclaimed clinical psychologist teaches her readers the keys to emotional problem solving. With a unique combination of Freudian theory, Zen Buddhism and Dr. Belisa's "tough love" mantra, Get a Grip offers on-the-go treatment for all of your lingering hang-ups.

"In a world where all that people want to see are measurable outcomes, the quest to nurture our inner child, to find ourselves, and to link mind and body has been replaced by a push to see external quantifiable goals," says Dr. Belisa. By contrast, Get a Grip provides a step-by-step guide to a self examination of the truth behind what you do, why you do it, and how to change your life.
