The Problem With Women... Is Men: The Evolution Of A Man's Man To A Man Of Higher Consciousness

The Problem with Women... is Men by Charles J. Orlando

Description: The Problem with Women… is Men: The Evolution of a Man’'s Man to a Man of Higher Consciousness is an in-depth look into stereotypic men today and the challenges women have surviving with them in long-term relationships and marriage. Written entirely from a man'’s point-of-view and experience—, and based on 10 years of real-world research and hundreds of interviews—, The Problem with Women…... is Men offers a humorous, blunt, tell-all examination of men, their issues, their refusal to change, and showcases both how women can maintain their sense of empowerment and individuality throughout their relationships, as well as explaining to men (perhaps at long-last) what women say they are looking for in a man. Through his highly-acclaimed book, author Charles J. Orlando explains the evolutionary path he took —from womanizer to upstanding husband, father, and female empowerment advocate. It was a journey that rejects long-held tenets of male behavior; his ever-present pursuit of living comfortably in his own skin. It is the same path he found his true brethren on, albeit struggling with a lack of guts and/or direction with which to channel their characteristics. It is a path of principles and character; clearly going against the grain of society, but critical for men to enlighten themselves, raise their consciousness to a higher plane.

Description: “Knowing what you’re dying to do tells you what you are living for.” – Steve Mazan Steve Mazan was a funny kid with a big dream. From the time he was 12 years old, he wanted to become a comedian for one reason, and one reason only: to perform stand-up comedy on David Letterman's show. Like all eager comics, he hustled for work in small clubs across the country, taking any gig he could earn. The pay was crummy, the progress miniscule, and some of the jobs ridiculous. But Steve continued hoping that “someday” his dream might come true. Then he received news that would change his life forever. Steve was diagnosed with incurable liver cancer, and learned he might only have five years to live. That was in 2005. Fighting through the fear and refusing to let depression swallow him whole, Steve chose to make the most out of his remaining time…he would dedicate what was left of his life to living his dream: performing on The Late Show for his idol, David Letterman. A roller-coaster ride of laugher, tears, and reversals of fortune that boldly says, “If you stop chasing your dreams, you’re already dead.” And, now, it’s a book!

World Jazz CD, "Culmination" One Of The Top Chicago Jazz Recordings Of 2010

PHOTO

Description: The World Jazz of Guitarist and NEA composer Donovan Mixon. His latest CD entitled Culmination was deemed one of the Top Chicago Jazz Recordings of 2010 on jazzchicago.net. Brad Walseth: Jazzchicago.net “Despite the obvious Middle-Eastern influences, this album is not what I would call your usual "world music," but rather combines Western jazz and classical music with Eastern melodic touches... Mixon's sliding rapid picking is reminiscent of fellow Chicago world music traveler Fareed Haque...Culmination is a highly engaging release from a guitarist/composer with a distinct style who I hope to hear much more from in the future.” Francesco Martinelli: Musica Jazz “He recorded with the likes of Lee Konitz, George Garzone and Eddie Henderson, and distilled his experiences into a personal style of relaxed elegance, where notes are carefully placed in an uncluttered, transparent texture.” Alexandra Ivanoff: Time Out Istanbul “It’s not ambient fare at all, but jazz with the proviso that you never know what’s coming next and it will definitely not hurt you. It’s billed as “global jazz” but it’s not world music in the current sense -- it’s Mixon’s personal take on his own jazz journeys and how they’ve shaped him.” Website: cdbaby.com/donovanmixon

Missed Connections: Love, Lost & Found By Sophie Blackall

MISSED CONNECTIONS: LOVE, LOST & FOUND

Description: Each day, untold people have chance encounters with strangers and subsequently kick themselves for not being bold, brave, or spontaneous enough to formally introduce themselves. Like a message in a bottle, a “missed connection” classified is an attempt, however far-fetched, by one person to reach another on the strength of a remembered glance, smile, or fleeting conversation. The anonymous messages range from hopeful to despondent, romantic to salacious. In her critically acclaimed first book for adults, MISSED CONNECTIONS: LOVE, LOST & FOUND, New York Times bestselling illustrator Sophie Blackall creates a gorgeous illustrated homage to the mystery, pathos, and humor of actual “missed connections” classifieds found online. Blackall first became acquainted with “missed connections” postings upon a crowded subway car in March of 2009. A handsome fellow squeezed in beside her and they apologized in rounds for knocking elbows. Upon disembarking, he suddenly reappeared in the window, made eye contact, and mouthed two words just before the train pulled away. Sophie turned to the girl next to her. “What did he say?” she asked. “Missed connections,” the girl replied. Sophie had no idea what the girl was talking about, but when she got home, she sat at her computer, looked up “missed connections” … and was immediately hooked. Within days, Sophie’s own Missed Connections project was born—exquisite Chinese ink and watercolor paintings, each transforming one little detail of a “missed connections” post into a vibrant, fully imagined world.

The Playbook By Barney Stinson With Matt Kuhn

Playbook Cover

Description: From the bestselling authors of The Bro Code comes THE PLAYBOOK: Suit up. Score Chicks. Be Awesome (On-sale October 5; Touchstone; $13.00 trade paperback; 978-1-4391-9683-0), by Barney Stinson with Matt Kuhn. Based on an episode of CBS’s hit comedy How I Met Your Mother, THE PLAYBOOK includes every scam, con, hustle, hoodwink, gambit, flimflam, stratagem, and bamboozle Barney has ever used—or ever hopes to use—to pick up chicks. While The Bro Code provided men with all the rules needed to become a “bro” and behave properly amongst other bros, THE PLAYBOOK is an indispensible guide to the fairer sex, in which Barney (portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris on the show) reveals his time-tested, can’t-miss pick-up maneuvers designed to wow the women. Learn more at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TV-NhfgoA7A. Other seduction methods preach “social dynamics” in which you insult women in an attempt to attract them. Rather than degrade women, The Playbook centers on the profound personal changes you can make to trick—er, entice—women into sleeping with you. If you’re wondering why you have to change who you are, consider this: is a woman more likely to sleep with a loser like you or an underwater bomb diffuser who grew up in an orphanage? It’s just science.

"BADER FIELD; HOW MY FAMILY SURVIVED SUICIDE"

"Bader Field; How my Family Surviveid Suicide" Front Cover

Description: Our family's story is one of inspiration and hope. My latest book, "Bader Field; How My Family Survived Suicide" (Nightengale Press) is the emotional story of our family's struggle to survive after my older brother at age 22 took his life. I was just 16 years old. The effects on myself and my family were horrific, beyond description. As a father now, I have a completely different perspective. Please visit my website for an extensive overview of the book which took me over thirty years of persistence and determination to complete. www.carledavid.com. This is a journey of love, forgiveness and acceptance. My story needs to be told as this is an issue which is too often ignored and neglected. If these kids would only see the pain they cast on their families, I think they would pause and reconsider with the realization that there is always tomorrow. Having lived through and survived the horrific experience of my brother's suicide, I am awakened to the purpose in my life. I am paying it forward by illustrating the pain with which the surviving family members are imbued so perhaps it will draw someone back from that edge of desperation by showing them that they don't die alone. They take their family with them. Life is a gift and every day we wake up is a blessing.

Reviews: “I think many women limit themselves to dating only within their race. I believe we should be open-minded to all races. In dealing with white men, I’ve found myself thinking, ‘Either this guy isn’t into black girls, or he’s assuming I don’t have an interest in white men’. From reading Niki’s book, I’ve realized sometimes it’s neither, and just maybe, we could all use a little help. I believe Niki’s book delivers that help in a hilariously honest way.” - Meagan Good (actress)

Is That A Picasso On Your Fridge?: Kids "Masterpieces" Critiqued By An "Art Expert"

Is That a Picasso on Your Fridge?

Description: Age can’t constrain greatness. Mozart composed at five. Picasso was painting at seven. If one doubts that young children reveal signs of genius every time they touch crayon to paper, just ask any parent about the artwork on their refrigerator door. But regular people don’t understand “art,” so it is impossible for them to see the difference between the work of an idiot savant and a kid who’s just an idiot. Luckily, New York art critic Salvatore Consiglio is here to separate the wheat from the chaff in the field of children’s art. Not afraid to call it as he sees it, Consiglio is brutally honest to any young artists who submitted “derivative” or “uninspired” work for this book — telling them straight out if it is time to hang up the Magic Markers. When the paint has dried, "Is That a Picasso on Your Fridge?" emerges as a bitingly hilarious parody of parents’ love for their kids’ scribbles and art critics’ adoration of their own narcissistic opinions.

“HUNTING FOR HEMINGWAY” A DD MCGIL LITERATI MYSTERY

Cover of "Hunting for Hemingway"

Description: Diane Gilbert Madsen’s novel, HUNTING FOR HEMINGWAY, the second in the DD McGil Literati Mystery series poses the question what would happen if Ernest Hemingway’s long lost manuscripts were found? In 1922, when Hemingway’s wife traveled from Paris to meet him in Switzerland, a valise containing all of Hemingway’s earliest unpublished writings was stolen from her compartment at the train station. These manuscripts, missing nearly 90 years, would now have incalculable literary and monetary value. DD McGil, a thirty-something freelance insurance investigator, is thrust into the middle of a complex dilemma when Professor David Barnes, an old flame, shows up in Hemingway’s hometown claiming he has found the lost Hemingway manuscripts and is going to auction them off. Her client, American Insurance, has perhaps unwisely insured these manuscripts. Their CEO hires DD to help authenticate them because she knew David Barnes at one time, she has formal training in literature, and most importantly, he is trying to get DD back into bed. When David is found dead and DD is found at the scene of the crime, she becomes the prime suspect and must protect herself.

They describe how to recognize each kind of touch, the differences between them, and how to respond.

When it comes to bad touches, Bobby triumphantly concludes, “Whether it is a stranger, or someone you know well, the rules to be safe are always the same: Say no! Run Away! And find a grown up friend to tell!” Author and former Deputy Sheriff Robert Kahn recommends that parents read this book with their children and encourage teachers to share it with the class!
