The Men on My Couch: True Stories of Sex, Love and Psychotherapy
Brandy Engler - 2012
WHAT MEN FEEL. WHAT WOMEN NEED TO KNOW. When Dr. Brandy Engler opened her sex therapy practice for women in Manhattan, she got a big surprise. Most of the calls were from men. They wanted to talk about womanizing, porn addiction, impotence, prostitutes—and most of all, love. Her patients were everyday guys from all walks of life. Among them were David, the Wall Street hotshot and compulsive womanizer; Charles, an introvert who kept pushing away the fiancée he thought was too beautiful for him; Paul, the self-made man who visited massage parlors despite his sexy wife; and the men’s group whose stark revelations about male anger and their search for the right woman will open your eyes. In The Men on My Couch, Dr. Engler allows readers inside those private sessions to witness her exciting and evocative encounters with what men desire and fear. Dr. Engler tells her own story, too. At first her patients’ revelations are painful and disconcerting, especially against the backdrop of her own difficult love affair. Yet Dr. Engler lets readers experience how she evolves both professionally and personally, from chagrin to compassion, and reconciles her idealized notions of love and sex with the unexpected and raw truths she hears in the office. The Men on My Couch is unlike books you’ve read before. There are no tired facile conclusions or pejorative generalizations. Here are fresh insights into modern sexual maladies, gleaned from real people having real struggles and experiencing real epiphanies—in the real world. This book will change how both women and men think about love, sex, and desire.

Who Ate My Cheese?: The Road to Freedom
Rowland Rose - 2013
No reader will remain indifferent, and certainly he will discover himself in one or another of the characters, or will find in them similarities to persons that he knows. There are four protagonists in this story: Two giants, George and Robert, and a pair of enormous pigs, Miles and Torie. They represent the mirror image of a confused and convulsive society that exists out of place among the changes that occur at breakneck speed. This extreme situation in which we now find ourselves is the result of wrongheaded political, social and economic policies, and of letting others control the destiny of our lives. We can behave like any one of them. We can decide to be pigs or giants, to live free or be trapped, to discover ourselves or hide behind the manipulation of the maze.
The Foundations Of Personality
Abraham Myerson - 1921
It is not merely the absence of fear that constitutes courage, though we interchange "fearless" with "courageous." Frequently it is the conquest of fear by the man himself that leads him to the highest courage. There is a type of courage based on the lack of imagination, the inability to see ahead the disaster that lurks around every corner. There is another type of courage based on the philosophy that to lose control of oneself is the greatest disaster. There are the nobly proud, whose conception of "ought," of "noblesse oblige," makes them the real aristocrats of the race.
