Entre coups bas et manipulation, découvrez l'envers du décor de la célèbre émission de TF1 Ella Gbezan, alias Ella de Koh Lanta, a été finaliste du jeu télévisé à Raja Ampat. Le téléspectateur avait alors découvert une candidate redoutable, fine analyste du genre humain, le manipulant à l’envi. Ce livre est une première et il se veut transparent à tous les niveaux. Ella souhaite livrer les détails inconnus du public : du casting, au départ pour l’aventure, en passant par la survie face aux autres et à soi-même. Ella explique avec franchise le fonctionnement de son aventure. Elle y décrit aussi les lieux, aborde les caractères des différents candidats et n’hésite pas à révéler ce qui a été caché pendant les épreuves. Et elle, est-elle vraiment ce que les caméras ont bien voulu montrer ? Comment vit-on le fait de devenir une célébrité malgré soi ? Comment gère-t-on « l’après aventure » d’un point de vue médiatique et personnel ? Ella, devenue psychologue, pose son regard sur cette expérience exceptionnelle. Un témoignage édifiant, qui vous ouvrira les yeux sur l'univers tant convoité de la télé-réalité À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Ella Gbezan, encore étudiante lors de sa participation à Koh Lanta, est aujourd’hui psychologue. Elle a lancé la société Coach Casting avec Caroline Matteucci, sa partenaire d’aventure, qui forme les futurs candidats des émissions de téléréalité. Ses prochains projets concernent le théâtre et le cinéma. EXTRAIT Tu vas pouvoir découvrir mon expérience, tel un film enregistré, comme si tu étais à mes côtés. J’aimerais que tu t’imagines être le troisième œil incrusté en plein milieu de mon front (je ne te demande pas ici de devenir schizophrène, mais juste d’utiliser ton imagination raisonnablement, nous sommes bien d’accord). Cet œil te permet, à la manière d’une caméra, de retourner en arrière. Comme un film enregistré, tu vas pouvoir lire dans mes pensées et percevoir ce que j’ai pu voir. Et, surtout, ressentir avec moi les différentes émotions qui ont ponctué mon aventure. Cher lecteur, tu vas d’ici quelques minutes t’envoler avec moi. Mais, pour ce faire, je n’aurais qu’une seule demande express : il s’agit de bien te rappeler cette règle de survie indispensable ; tu vas découvrir Koh Lanta, mais tu n’y es pas encore, alors ne fais pas comme nous durant l’aventure, ne reste pas sans t’alimenter ! En outre, mets-toi au maximum à l’aise, bien « tranquillou », dans un endroit cosy, si possible. Ou alors, tu peux décider de te mettre dans un endroit totalement austère par solidarité avec ce que tu vas lire dans certains passages du livre. Bref, le principal est que tu savoures, dégustes et dévores ce livre autant que tu le souhaites. Et ma sentence est irrévocable ! Bonne lecture et bon voyage !

Past acquaintances resurface in the sun-drenched south, in this new translation, book thirty-one of the new Penguin Maigret series. 'The palm trees around the railway station were motionless, fixed in a Saharan sun . . . It really felt as if they were stepping into another world, and they were embarrassed to be entering it in the dark clothes that had been suited to the rainy streets of Paris the evening before.' An officer from Scotland Yard is studying Maigret's methods when a call from an island off the Côte d'Azure sends the two men off to an isolated community to investigate its eccentric inhabitants. Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations. 'His artistry is supreme' John Banville 'One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories' Guardian 'A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness' Independent

Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Revved up and irritable, many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar illness, autism, or other disorders but don’t respond well to treatment. They are then medicated, often with poor results and unwanted side effects. Based on emerging scientific research and extensive clinical experience, integrative child psychiatrist Dr. Victoria Dunckley has pioneered a four-week program to treat the frequent underlying cause, Electronic Screen Syndrome (ESS). Dr. Dunckley has found that everyday use of interactive screen devices — such as computers, video games, smartphones, and tablets — can easily overstimulate a child’s nervous system, triggering a variety of stubborn symptoms. In contrast, she’s discovered that a strict, extended electronic fast single-handedly improves mood, focus, sleep, and behavior, regardless of the child’s diagnosis. It also reduces the need for medication and renders other treatments more effective. Offered now in this book, this simple intervention can produce a life-changing shift in brain function and help your child get back on track — all without cost or medication. While no one in today’s connected world can completely shun electronic stimuli, Dr. Dunckley provides hope for parents who feel that their child has been misdiagnosed or inappropriately medicated, by presenting an alternative explanation for their child’s difficulties and a concrete plan for treating them.

From the author of 1491—the best-selling study of the pre-Columbian Americas—a deeply engaging new history of the most momentous biological event since the death of the dinosaurs. More than 200 million years ago, geological forces split apart the continents. Isolated from each other, the two halves of the world developed radically different suites of plants and animals. When Christopher Columbus set foot in the Americas, he ended that separation at a stroke. Driven by the economic goal of establishing trade with China, he accidentally set off an ecological convulsion as European vessels carried thousands of species to new homes across the oceans. The Columbian Exchange, as researchers call it, is the reason there are tomatoes in Italy, oranges in Florida, chocolates in Switzerland, and chili peppers in Thailand. More important, creatures the colonists knew nothing about hitched along for the ride. Earthworms, mosquitoes, and cockroaches; honeybees, dandelions, and African grasses; bacteria, fungi, and viruses; rats of every description—all of them rushed like eager tourists into lands that had never seen their like before, changing lives and landscapes across the planet. Eight decades after Columbus, a Spaniard named Legazpi succeeded where Columbus had failed. He sailed west to establish continual trade with China, then the richest, most powerful country in the world. In Manila, a city Legazpi founded, silver from the Americas, mined by African and Indian slaves, was sold to Asians in return for silk for Europeans. It was the first time that goods and people from every corner of the globe were connected in a single worldwide exchange. Much as Columbus created a new world biologically, Legazpi and the Spanish empire he served created a new world economically. As Charles C. Mann shows, the Columbian Exchange underlies much of subsequent human history. Presenting the latest research by ecologists, anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians, Mann shows how the creation of this worldwide network of ecological and economic exchange fostered the rise of Europe, devastated imperial China, convulsed Africa, and for two centuries made Mexico City—where Asia, Europe, and the new frontier of the Americas dynamically interacted—the center of the world. In such encounters, he uncovers the germ of today’s fiercest political disputes, from immigration to trade policy to culture wars. In 1493, Charles Mann gives us an eye-opening scientific interpretation of our past, unequaled in its authority and fascination. From the Hardcover edition.
