Ambientado na Paris do fim dos anos 1970 e início dos 80, 'O que amar quer dizer' repassa os anos de convivência do jornalista cultural Mathieu Lindon com Michel Foucault e a enorme influência que o filósofo teve sobre sua vida. Filho de Jérôme Lindon, fundador das Editions de Minuit e editor de Samuel Beckett e Marguerite Duras, o autor deste livro rememora as festas no apartamento de Foucault na Rue de Vaugirard em descrições bem-humoradas de sua vivência homossexual em meio a viagens de ácido e música clássica. Em seguida, trata da sombra que surgiu no meio gay quando a aids, que viria a vitimar o filósofo, entrou na pauta da época. A história se desenrola ao redor dessas duas figuras masculinas - de um lado, o pai de 'sorriso tímido', objeto de um amor que não encontra a forma de se expressar; de outro, o amigo de 'sorriso escancarado' que lhe ensinou a ser feliz, vivo - e grato.

Most of us go through life with a vision of what the ideal relationship is supposed to be, yet too often our longing for a soul mate leads to disappointment and heartbreak. What we see, desire, or harshly judge in our mate is but a reflection of self, Vanzant explains, as in IN THE MEANTIME she helps us to break free of our fantasies and view a relationship as an ongoing process of discovery and growth. Whether she is offering practical advice on how to avoid making the same relationship mistakes over and over again, or helping us to view the painful end of a relationship as an opportunity to learn and change, Iyanla Vanzant, as author Patrice Gains has said, 'reminds us that every moment is an opportunity to learn and inspires and encourages us to continue our inward daily search'.

"I loved Michel as Michel, not as a father. Never did I feel the slightest jealousy or the slightest embitterment or exasperation when it came to him. It was something that no one has a right to expect from the best son or the best lover." -- from Learning What Love Means Mathieu Lindon's father Jérôme Lindon was the founder of Éditions de Minuit, the legendary French publishing company that not only gave the world the nouveau roman but also nurtured two Nobel Prize winners, Samuel Beckett and Michel Simon. Lindon rebelled against his father with the full battery of a "disastrous adolescence." From the beginning, he had realized that he would not perpetuate the dynasty his father had created. For one thing, Mathieu Lindon is gay: he wouldn't create any progeny, and the line of descent would stop with him. As this turbulent memoir reveals, it would take another literary giant -- Michel Foucault -- to reconcile Mathieu Lindon to his father's love. Over an intense six-year period that included one year of living together in Foucault's apartment on rue de Vaugirard, Lindon and Foucault enjoyed a passionate, productive friendship. Their social circle included other figures of the Parisian gay, literary, and art scenes (including Hervé Guibert and Daniel Defert), creating a satisfying, self-invented, pleasure-oriented surrogate family that eventually produced an alchemical miracle: Lindon reevaluated and accepted his father's love. Foucault's humanity and inventiveness gave Lindon the clarity and the magnanimity to accept the gifts his father had always offered. Learning What Love Means is the story of a prodigal son's rebellion and return, an unflinching portrait of two famous literary figures and the journey taken by a third -- Lindon himself -- to achieve a genuine capacity to love. This book won the prestigious Prix Médicis in 2011 when it was published in French.

With a new introduction on using the principles of The Servant in your life and career, this book redefines what it means to be a leader. In this absorbing tale, you watch the timeless principles of servant leadership unfold through the story of John Daily, a businessman whose outwardly successful life is spiraling out of control. He is failing miserably in each of his leadership roles as boss, husband, father, and coach. To get his life back on track, he reluctantly attends a weeklong leadership retreat at a remote Benedictine monastery. To John's surprise, the monk leading the seminar is a former business executive and Wall Street legend. Taking John under his wing, the monk guides him to a realization that is simple yet profound: The true foundation of leadership is not power, but authority, which is built upon relationships, love, service, and sacrifice. Along with John, you will learn that the principles in this book are neither new nor complex. They don't demand special talents; they are simply based on strengthening the bonds of respect, responsibility, and caring with the people around you. The Servant's message can be applied by anyone, anywhere—at home or at work. If you are tired of books that lecture instead of teach; if you are searching for ways to improve your leadership skills; if you want to understand the timeless virtues that lead to lasting and meaningful success, then this book is one you cannot afford to miss.
