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 !

The shocking, never-before-told story of the bizarre world inside the legendary Playboy Mansion—and, finally, the secret truth about the man who holds the key—from one of the few people who truly knows: Hef’s former #1 girlfriend and star of The Girls Next Door A spontaneous decision at age twenty-one transformed small-town Oregon girl Holly Sue Cullen into Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner’s #1 girlfriend. But like Alice’s journey into Wonderland, after Holly plunged down the rabbit hole, what seemed like a fairytale life inside the Playboy Mansion—including A-list celebrity parties and her own #1-rated television show for four years—quickly devolved into an oppressive routine of strict rules, manipulation, and battles with ambitious, backstabbing bunnies. Life inside the notorious Mansion wasn’t a dream at all—and quickly became her nightmare. After losing her identity, her sense of self-worth, and her hope for the future, Holly found herself sitting alone in a bathtub contemplating suicide. But instead of ending her life, Holly chose to take charge of it. In this shockingly candid and surprisingly moving memoir, this thoughtful and introspective woman opens up about life inside the Mansion, the drugs, the sex, the abuse, the infamous parties, and her real behind-the-scenes life with Bridget, Kendra, and, of course, Mr. Playboy himself. With great courage, Holly shares the details of her subsequent troubled relationship, landing her own successful television series, and the hard work of healing, including her turn on Dancing with the Stars. A cautionary tale and a celebration of personal empowerment, Down the Rabbit Hole reminds us of the importance of fighting for our dreams—and finding the life we deserve.

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.

How do otherwise considerate human beings do cruel things and still live in peace with themselves? Drawing on his agentic theory, Dr. Bandura provides a definitive exposition of the psychosocial mechanism by which people selectively disengage their moral self-sanctions from their harmful conduct. They do so by sanctifying their harmful behavior as serving worthy causes; they absolve themselves of blame for the harm they cause by displacement and diffusion of responsibility; they minimize or deny the harmful effects of their actions; and they dehumanize those they maltreat and blame them for bringing the suffering on themselves. Dr. Bandura’s theory of moral disengagement is uniquely broad in scope. Theories of morality focus almost exclusively at the individual level. He insightfully extends the disengagement of morality to the social-system level through which wide-spread inhumanities are perpetrated. In so doing, he offers enlightening new perspectives on some of the most provocative issues of our time, addressing: Moral disengagement in all aspects of the death penalty—from public policy debates, to jury decisions, to the processes of execution The social and moral justifications of major industries—including gun manufacturers, the entertainment industry, tobacco companies, and the world of "too big to fail" finance Moral disengagement in terrorism, and how terrorists rationalize the use of violence as a means of social change Climate change denial, and the strenuous efforts by some to dispute the overwhelming scientific consensus affirming the impact of human behavior on the environment "Al Bandura is the most cited individual in the history of psychology for the depth, breadth and originality of his ideas and writings. Now with his ground-breaking new contribution, Moral Disengagement, his reach extends not only to teachers and students but also to the general public --making them aware of everyday evils in many spheres of daily life that must be counteracted by mindful moral engagement." ----Phil Zimbardo, Ph.D. Author, The Lucifer Effect; President, The Heroic Imagination Project "The authoritative statement by the world’s most-cited living psychologist, laying out his influential theory. Plunge into these fascinating historical and modern case studies of moral disengagement—morality tales for all time, illuminated by the psychology of how people do harm to themselves and others."-- Susan T. Fiske, Psychology and Public Affairs, Princeton University ‘If you have wondered why good people do bad things, and even terrible and horrible things, then this is the only book you ever will have to read." ----Robert J. Sternberg, Professor of Human Development, Cornell University "Dr. Albert Bandura is one of the great behavioral scientists of our time. His superb contributions include a deep analysis of human morality, its fundamental importance and the complexity of its development." ----David A. Hamburg, MD, Visiting Scholar, American Association for the Advancement of Science; DeWitt Wallace Distinguished Scholar, Weill Cornell Medical College; President Emeritus, Carnegie Corporation of New York
