Description : Decisions about self-disclosure-whether to reveal one's thoughts, feel ings, or past experiences to another person, or the level of intimacy of such disclosure-are part of the everyday life of most persons. The nature of the decisions that a person makes will have an impact on his or her life. They will determine the kinds of relationships the person has with others; how others perceive him or her; and the degree of self knowledge and awareness that the person possesses. The study of self-disclosure has interested specialists from many disciplines, including personality and social psychologists, clinical and counseling psychologists, and communications researchers. Our book brings together the work of experts from these various disciplines with the hope that knowledge about work being done on self-disclosure in related disciplines will be increased. A strong emphasis in each of the chapters is theory development and the integration of ideas about self-disclosure. The book's chapters explore three major areas, including the interrelationship of self-disclosure and personality as well as the role of self-disclosure in the development, maintenance, and deterioration of personal relationships, and the con tribution of self-disclosure to psychotherapy, marital therapy, and counseling.

Description : Since April 2007, a whistleblower by the name of "retiredafb" has been shocking the general public with its disclosure: footages and comments posted on YouTube and Revver.com. He claims to be William Rutledge, and the Apollo 20 Commander for the USAF (August 1976). Luca Scantamburlo - ex journalist - has interviewed him and another YouTube user ("moonwalker1966delta") who claims to be a former NASA astronaut, and the Apollo 19 Commander (February 1976). Did these presumed secret joint US/USSR space missions take place indeed? The targets would have been some lunar anomalies, on the far side of the Moon. The opinion of the Author is this amazing story contains some kernels of truth, behind the controversial strategy of disclosure (video fakes and misleading data are present). In the book there are the reasons for his opinion, the chronology of his research (with his Web articles already published), the interviews with the two alleged Commanders, and some revelations never published before.

Description : Wing Chun Kuen Awakening - the ultimate disclosure of Wing Chun. “It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.” - Unknown "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts." - Daniel Patrick Moynihan The quotations above represent the theme of this book. Have you ever wondered why is the mainstream Wing Chun (practiced by most people) often failing on YouTube? Have you ever wondered why are different schools teaching the same techniques differently and they mostly seem unworkable and unscientific? This is a disclosure of Wing Chun that exposes the misinterpreted techniques of the mainstream Wing Chun and it investigates the scientific validity of the mainstream Wing Chun instruction. It also provides some advice of how to resolve some of the crucial scientific errors of the instruction. In this disclosure, we categorize Wing Chun into 2 versions: mainstream vs corrected. The mainstream version contains scientific errors and the corrected version is the more scientific version which may be similar to the original version of Wing Chun. About Smart Research Wing Chun: "Smart Research Wing Chun" is a research program that tests and corrects the instruction of the mainstream Wing Chun scientifically. Through research, we have uncovered that the mainstream Wing Chun may have misinterpreted some techniques of the original Wing Chun and thus there are serious side effects and scientific flaws. The corrected Wing Chun is more workable and scientific than the mainstream Wing Chun; some benefits are more stable mobility; more power; and more usable techniques from Chi Sao. This series is divided into Book 1 and 2 as a complete series: Book 1 investigates could the instruction of the mainstream Wing Chun be corrupt; Book 2 investigates and provides some solutions to correct the errors so as to make your Wing Chun more workable. If you wish to find out how to upgrade your understanding of Wing Chun to the scientific version, get Book 1 and Book 2 of Wing Chun Kuen Awakening now! Note: 1) Book 1 and Book 2 form a complete series. Don't judge the quality and value of these books by the numbers of pages because you are buying the solutions to solve your Wing Chun errors instead of the number of pages that each book has. 2) The mainstream Wing Chun practitioners may leave fake negative reviews to discourage the readers from reading these books as they refuse to acknowledge the truth because of the nature of subject ans they probably don't want more people to find out about this truth. Read this disclosure and find out the truth for yourself. This disclosure had convinced some people including the high-level practitioners of the mainstream Wing Chun.
