"Entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, mysterious, poetic. Men who read it will surely learn much about themselves, and women--particularly those who are unfortunately misled into thinking of men as "the enemy"--will find it a real eye-opener."--Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse, M.D., Th.M., Harvard University
Robert A. Johnson's classic work exploring the differences between man and woman, female and male--newly reissued.
What does it really mean to be a man? What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity? And what of the feminine components of a man's personality?
Women do not really know as much about men as they think they do. They have developed, over the centuries, considerable expertise in the technique of adapting to men, but that is not the same as truly understanding them. Women often labor under the delusion that life is really pretty easy for men, at least when compared to their own lot, and they have no idea what a complicated struggle is really involved in the transition from male childhood to real manhood.
As timely today as when it was first published, He provides a fascinating look into male identity and how female dynamics influence men.
A sensible and compassionate book that will help those involved in any form of therapy make the best possible use of their time, effort, and money. "A fascinating blend of Eastern spirituality, Western psychotherapy, feminist consciousness, and real caring."--Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and the Blade 35 black-and-white photographs.
The authors' approach to intervention and treatment focuses on creatively rebalancing the intrapsychic dynamics of individual family members, as well as the family's connections with its families of origin and with the larger community.
Freud approved the overall editorial plan, specific renderings of key words and phrases, and the addition of valuable notes, from bibliographical and explanatory. Many of the translations were done by Strachey himself; the rest were prepared under his supervision. The result was to place the Standard Edition in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions. Newly designed in a uniform format, each new paperback in the Standard Edition opens with a biographical essay on Freud's life and work --along with a note on the individual volume--by Peter Gay, Sterling Professor of History at Yale.
This book is relevant to anyone grappling with the central challenge of relationships: how to achieve connections to others without losing oneself.--Deborah Tannen (author of You Just Don't Understand), New York Times Book Review
From author and psychotherapist Dr. Brian Weiss comes the classic bestseller on the true case of the past-life therapy that changed the lives of both the prominent psychiatrist and young patient involved--now featuring a new afterword by the author.As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from the "space between lives," which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss' family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career. With more than one million copies in print, Many Lives, Many Masters is one of the breakthrough texts in alternative psychotherapy and remains as provocative and timeless as it was when first published.
