Every family has their secrets. Some deadly, some dark, some full of longing. Beth's father John has been to her best friend Lily everything a godchild could ask for: a protector, a friend, a better father as her own could ever be. Lily and Beth have been best friends since they were born. They share every secret, apart from one: Lily, who is almost the image of her mother, has never been in love, never longed for a boy, because she feels she belongs to one man only: John, Beth's father. The alleged car accident four years ago that put Beth's mother in a week-long coma, did not only kill Lily's mother's and Will's wife's life, but took from John his best friend, and first love. Now, when he looks at Lily, he forces himself to see his godchild, Will's daughter, Beth's best friend and not his second chance for true love. **Warning: This books is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to explicit sexual content.

"You are gods." Blasphemy? No, those mysterious words, spoken by Jesus in the Gospel of John and alluded to in Psalm 82, point to a holy longing deep in our hearts that tells each of us that we were created for more. “Imagine that you were to wake up tomorrow to discover that, by some miracle, you had become a god overnight,” writes Dr. Gregory Popcak. “Not THE God—omnipresent, all-knowing, all-powerful—but a god in the classic sense. That is to say, you woke to find that you were perfect, immortal, utterly confident in who you are, where you were going in life, and how you were going to get there. It might seem ridiculous to consider at first, but allow yourself to imagine this truly miraculous transformation. What would it be like to live without fear? How would it feel to be completely at peace with yourself and the people in your life? Imagine what it would be like to be able to resolve—once and for all—the tension that currently exists between all your competing feelings, impulses, desires, and demands. What would change in your life as a result of your having become that sort of divinely actualized person?” Bold questions are in need of bold answers. And in Broken Gods, a work that is both practical and inspirational, Dr. Greg explores what our deepest desires--and even our darkest desires-- tell us about our ultimate destiny and reveals a commonsense approach to fulfilling our true purpose in life.

Throughout history, hearing and sound perception have been typically framed in the context of how sound conveys information and how that information influences the listener. "Hear Where We Are" inverts this premise and examines how humans and other hearing animals use sound to establish acoustical relationships with their surroundings. This simple inversion reveals a panoply of possibilities by which we can re-evaluate how hearing animals use, produce, and perceive sound. Nuance in vocalizations become signals of enticement or boundary setting; silence becomes a field ripe in auditory possibilities; predator/prey relationships are infused with acoustic deception, and sounds that have been considered territorial cues become the fabric of cooperative acoustical communities. This inversion also expands the context of sound perception into a larger perspective that centers on biological adaptation within acoustic habitats. Here, the rapid synchronized flight patterns of flocking birds and the tight maneuvering of schooling fish becomes an acoustic engagement. Likewise, when stridulating crickets synchronize their summer evening chirrups, it has more to do with the ‘cricket community’ monitoring their collective boundaries rather than individual crickets establishing ‘personal’ territory or breeding fitness. In "Hear Where We Are" the author continuously challenges many of the bio-acoustic orthodoxies, reframing the entire inquiry into sound perception and communication. By moving beyond our common assumptions, many of the mysteries of acoustical behavior become revealed, exposing a fresh and fertile panorama of acoustical experience and adaptation.

Ethics And Lao Tzu

Ethics and Lao-Tzu is an intricate story of psychotherapy. Dr. Mendelowtiz draws on great literary, psychological, and philosophical works in describing the journey of existential therapy. The book follows the story of Kristina, a client of Dr. Mendelowitz with multiple personalities (i.e., Dissociative Identity Disorder). Kristina's story is told, in part, through her artwork, which illustrates her journey through visually stunning pieces of art, each imbued richly with symbolism and meaning. Along the way, Mendelowitz creates a collage between the artwork, stories and letters from their therapy, illustrative quotes from classic works, and Mendeolowitz's own poetic thoughts. Throughout the book, Mendelowitz invites the reader to come along exploring the depths of the human soul. Kirk Schneider refers to Mendelowitz as "the poet laureate of existential psychology." In Ethics and Lao-Tzu, Mendelowitz illustrates why this high praise from the leading existential psychologist in the United States is so fitting.
