Some relationships last, others fall apart, and still others seem to thrive and grow as the years go on. The Two Truths About Love is a guide to creating this third type of relationship—an extraordinary partnership wherein each partner feels fully accepted and loved as they are. Designed over the course of thousands of hours conducting face-to-face counseling sessions with clients, psychotherapist and former Buddhist monk Jason B. Fischer’s unique approach has already improved the lives of countless individuals and couples. The two secrets to creating extraordinary relationships are simple: partners must 1. Give permission for the other person to be who they truly are while also 2. Taking responsibility for their own reactions, behaviors, assumptions, and expectations of their partner and the relationship. This book gives readers the tools to start giving permission and taking responsibility in their own relationships and offers strategies for letting go of dissatisfaction and habitual conflicts. In short, accessible chapters, readers learn how to put these seemingly simple rules into practice to regain balance and peace in their partnerships.

From the beloved author of Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend comes a wonderful new novel about a struggling man, written entirely in lists. Daniel Mayrock's life is at a crossroads. He knows the following to be true: 1. He loves his wife Jill... more than anything. 2. He only regrets quitting his job and opening a bookshop a little (maybe more than a little) 3. Jill is ready to have a baby. 4. The bookshop isn’t doing well. Financial crisis is imminent. Dan doesn't know how to fix it. 5. Dan hasn’t told Jill about their financial trouble. 6. Then Jill gets pregnant. This heartfelt story is about the lengths one man will go to and the risks he will take to save his family. But Dan doesn’t just want to save his failing bookstore and his family’s finances: 1. Dan wants to do something special. 2. He’s a man who is tired of feeling ordinary. 3. He’s sick of feeling like a failure. 4. He doesn't want to live in the shadow of his wife’s deceased first husband. Dan is also an obsessive list maker; his story unfolds entirely in his lists, which are brimming with Dan’s hilarious sense of humor, unique world-view, and deeply personal thoughts. When read in full, his lists paint a picture of a man struggling to be a man, a man who has reached a point where he’s willing to do anything for the love (and soon-to-be new love) of his life.

Follow best friends Eve and Cherry as they discover the Truth About Love and all the places you can find it; from the grassy lawns of a London university to the very top of the Eiffel Tower. Love is always in the last place you expect to find it. The Truth About Love is the complete series of three interweaving storylines. Book 1 Eve Harris has always had a point to prove: where you come from doesn't matter, it's what you aim for that counts. She has it all planned; find the perfect teaching job, live with her best friend, Cherry, and never get dragged back into the destructive world of her youth. The last thing she expects is to bump into millionaire heir Cameron Wallis on her last day on campus. Nor is she expecting to discover that when she gives him a chance to win her over, he's nothing like the playboy the newspapers paint him to be. Will Eve be able to let go of her judgments and embrace a spontaneous affair with Cam that isn't part of her plan? Or will the constraints from both their families prevent Cam and Eve from discovering The Truth About Love? Book Two: Cherry Donaldson goes through dates like some women go through coffee. So when she finds herself in need of a temporary roommate, saying yes to the gorgeous guy—even if he's not her usual type—is a bad idea. A very bad idea. The last thing she expects is to fall into a friendship with Jared. But he makes it so easy. And before she knows it, the lines blur, and his annoying habits become just a little bit charming. Will Cherry break her own rules to take a chance on the guy she now calls a friend or is The Truth About Love too much to bear? Book Three: When Eve Harris agrees to give billionaire playboy Cameron Wallis another chance, she doesn't anticipate finding herself in Paris living the dream. The chance to spend time with Cam away from gossip columns and the media is too tempting. But Paris isn't the fairy-tale she envisaged and all too quickly, Eve realises just how different her and Cam's lives really are. Will Eve be able to overcome her own insecurities and wade through the Truth About Love to get the man and her happily ever after?

Theologians, philosophers and scientists all have differing views of the world but what is the real abiding reality? Most are afraid to “cross the streams” so to speak of these distinct disciplines but suppose, we could gather together a group of these adherents to discuss the questions that people consider to taboo to talk about in public like the relationship of faith, fact or fantasy. Where would that conversation, its tangents or derivatives lead? This book attempts to answer those questions of the mind that every rational person has at some point in their life. To do that we must engage in discussions about reality, absurdity, perception, Truth, consciousness as well as Godel's preverbal incompleteness. While discussing the origin of the cosmos the topic will migrate from Transformers and UFO's to how multidimensionality could be related to miracles. The theme of the book examines the "freaky truths" of the relationship of these divergent disciplines and beliefs. As such, the main characters will be the Sovereign of the Universe and His history verses that of the scientific and philosophical communities. In answering the Problem of Evil (alone worth the cost) we invariably meet the Hostis humani generis = the enemy of humanity: Satan. Hopefully, a rocking good time will be had by everyone who ventures to buy the book. P.S. Don’t be surprised if you find a few spooky parts as well!

At about the same time in my life that I became a father, I learned the principle that masculinity bestows masculinity. However, since I did not learn this principle until I was almost 40 years old, I grew up struggling mightily in my own masculine identity and maturity. So I also knew from experience how critically important it was for me to fulfill my responsibility in passing along this principle to my two sons, Jonah and Jacob. Therefore, I created a list of seven “statements of truth” that encompassed what I wanted to teach my sons about becoming and living as a man, an authentic man, the kind of godly man that is described in the Bible. I began telling my sons these truths every night at an early age so they would become engrained in them, as part of their very essence, and my boys would never doubt them. I also spent years preparing for the time when I would elaborate on the full meaning of each truth with my sons, as part of a day of celebration of their entry into manhood. Those years of preparation became this book, which I published to help other fathers (or father-figures/mentors) train their sons (or any boy) how to become a real man. My hope is that this book will be a blessing and an encouragement to every boy who receives it as he enters into (and lives out) authentic manhood.
