  • "Feel good therapy session"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Reading this book is like a "feel good" session with a therapist. It encourages you to let go of your imperfections and live more whole heartedly. When listening to the stories in the book, you realize all those little negative thoughts that stop you from being authentic (for example, "he's being a jerk" instead of "he said something that was true and painful). The journey towards wholehearted living is a practice you would do everyday (or try as much as you can). I'm sure the key points that I take away from this book now are those things meaningful to me at this point in my life. I plan to read the book again and see if I find other things to work on.

    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    What other book might you compare The Power of the Pussy to and why?

    For women only - Shaunti Feldhahn as this too deals with what men are thinking.


    What does Alexandra Shawnee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This book is not for the easily offended, lots of swearing and she tells it just how it is. Very refreshing!


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That your vagina is gold!

  • "Deborah Tannen..."

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    was one of the first voices (appropriately, that of a woman) to speak up against the feminist insisience that there are no innate differences between men and women. (Neuroscience has since proven Tannen and the early van guard correct in their assessment, as men's and women's brain themselves are, indeed, different.) Tannen is a linguist and has accented on how men and women communicate, and I have taught her for nearly two decades in my English classes. It is important to note that, though there clearly are differences in how men and women think, emote, and talk, there is much overlap, some exceptions to the rule (I always say I am a heterosexual man who thinks like a woman), and that seeing the reality of difference in no way implies a surperiority or "better way" on either side. I read this on the heels of Gurian's Boys and Girls Learn Differently, which I also highly recommend.

    Marianne Williamson live in seminar leads the audience (and the listener) through a series of exercises and insights designed to foster emotional growth and maturity. Williamson's point that we must acknowledge past pain, but then move on, rather than dwelling on old hurts, is especially helpful.

    Williamson's humor is evident; it's as if one is having a chat with a wise and trusted friend rather than being lectured by a guru. Her self-help message is laced with wisdom and plain common sense, which is, of course, all too uncommon in our world.

    As a man, when you decide that you want to express your romantic or sexual desires, interests, and intentions to a woman, how do you go about communicating those desires and interests to her? Do you communicate your desires and interests to women in a cautious, vague, ambiguous, or 'beat-around-the-bush' manner? Do you avoid approaching women and avoid initiating a conversation with women altogether? Do you regularly cheat on your wife or girlfriend behind her back? Are you currently filled with so much bitterness, misogyny, and resentment toward women that you have no desire whatsoever to even interact with women? When listening to the audiobook version of Mode One: Let the Women Know What You're Really Thinking, Author and Professional Dating Coach Alan Roger Currie describes and examines what he refers to as the "Four Modes of Verbal Communication".

Nearly 20 percent of Americans now self-identify as nonreligious, including millions who are married to religious believers. Despite the differences, many of these marriages succeed beautifully. In this landmark book, popular author and secular humanist Dale McGowan explores some of the stories of these unions.

It is not natural for someone to be able to see photos of their ex's new lover eating a taco on the beach. Our brains were not built to sustain this kind of information.
