Esther Perel takes on tough questions, grappling with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. She invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire, and explains what it takes to bring lust home.

I'd recommend this for anyone who is part of a couple, was part of a couple, or wants to be part of a couple again. Talks about a lot of perspectives and breaks erotic issues down in a helpful way that I don't think most of our cultures encourage us to think about otherwise. I will be buying more books by this author for sure!

I didn't enjoy the couple's story as much as some of the others, but the author's commentary on things she wished in retrospect that she had done differently was very interesting!

Most children are afraid of the dark. Some fear monsters under the bed.

If your child suffers from any of these forms of anxiety, the program in this book offers practical, scientifically proven tools that can help.

As passionate as it is profound, Atlas Shrugged is one of the most influential novels of our time. In it, Rand dramatizes the main tenets of objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity.

The narrator was easy to understand and engaging (despite some of the characters changing accents throughout the story!). Oh well - small complaint for a big book. Kept me awake on long drives and I didn't miss most of what was left out from the novel.
