Publisher: Simon and Schuster
One in four people have heard it or have said it. . . . Now discover what it really means. If the relationship you have with your significant other is defined more by companionship than passion . . . if you love each other deeply but are not deeply in love . . . if you feel that something's missing or is no longer there . . . then you could be experiencing ILYB (I Love You, But . . .). In I Love You, but I'm Not in Love with You --a real-life relationship guide from couples' counselor Andrew G. Marshall--partners and individuals who have “fallen out of love” or want to rekindle the love that once was will learn how to use Marshall 's program with impressive results. This is a much-needed book to help men and women of all ages in any type of committed romantic relationship to truly understand love and to point out the everyday habits that undermine growing together. Marshall's research is one of the few that delves into what causes relationships to “cool” or for emotions to be “dulled.” So much more than a quick-fix guide, I Love You, but I'm Not In Love with You empowers couples to emerge with a better understanding of themselves and each other, and ultimately build a stronger, more passionate bond. Learn how to: • Argue productively and address the core of the issue • Employ the trigger words for more effective communication • Find a balance between being fulfilled as an individual and being one half of a couple • Discover if the ILYB is simply a symptom of a workable problem • Take your sex life to a deeper level of intimacy • Create new bonds instead of searching for the old ones

Author: Lisa Leonard
When Lisa Leonard said her marriage vows, she was determined to be the best wife she could be. When her first son was born with a severe disability, Lisa promised herself she would always be the mother he needed. When she began her jewelry business, Lisa committed to giving it her all. Over the years, the exhaustion of trying to be the perfect wife, mother, and businesswoman took its toll. Lisa knew it wasn’t working. She wanted to change things, but how? Everyone depended on her. So she kept going, kept pushing, kept trying to prove she could do it all. Until one evening, in tears and desperation, Lisa realized that she could no longer be everything to everyone. Somewhere along the way, she had lost herself. In Brave Love, Lisa shares her story of finding truth and wholeness in the midst of life’s competing demands. Brave Love is about what it means to be human, how it feels to be broken and afraid, and what happens when we dare to love deeply. Join Lisa on a journey where you will discover you are worthy and lovable just as you are. You don’t have to try harder or be better. You don’t have to prove yourself and you don’t have to make others okay. In this freedom you will find more peace and more joy. Most importantly, you will learn that as you stop trying to be everything to everyone, you will love others better.

Author: Jonathan Ames
Publisher: Open Road + Grove/Atlantic
“Utterly delightful” essays from the creator of the HBO’s Bored to Death reveal intimate details of his life as a famously neurotic New York writer (Brendan Halpin, Los Angeles Times). Jonathan Ames has drawn comparisons across the literary spectrum, from David Sedaris to F. Scott Fitzgerald to P.G. Wodehouse, and his books, as well as his abilities as a performer, have made him a favorite on the Late Show with David Letterman. Whether he’s chasing deranged cockroaches around his apartment, kissing a beautiful actress on the set of an avant-garde film, finding himself stuck perilously on top of a fence in the middle of the night in Memphis, or provoking fights with huge German men, Jonathan Ames has an uncanny knack for getting himself into outlandish situations. In I Love You More Than You Know, Ames once again turns his own adventures, neuroses, joys, heartaches, and insights into profound and hilarious tales. Alive with love and tenderness for his son, his parents, his great-aunt—and even strangers in bars—Ames looks beneath the surface of our world to find the beauty in the perverse, the sweetness in loneliness, and the humor in pain in essays that are “both poignant and silly—an irresistible mix” (John Dicker, Philadelphia Weekly).

Author: Chen-ho Wang
Publisher: Columbia University Press
In this lively translation of Wang Chen-ho's ribald satire, a Taiwanese village loses all perspective—and common sense—at the prospect of fleecing a shipload of lusty and lonely American soldiers. A rotund, excitable high school English teacher receives word that 300 GIs are coming from Vietnam for a weekend of R and R. He persuades the owners of the Big 4 brothels that they will all take in more U.S. dollars if the pleasure girls can speak a little English; his plan is to train fifty specially selected prostitutes in a "Crash Course for Bar Girls." The teacher, Dong Siwen (his name means "refinement") enlists the eager support of local Councilman Qian and the managers of such elite establishments as Night Fragrances and Valley of Joy. "If the girls learn how to say three things in English— Hello, How are you? and Want to do you-know-what? everything is A-OK!" But what begins as a simple plan to teach a few English phrases quickly becomes absurdly elaborate: courses will include an "Introduction to American Culture," a crash course on global etiquette, and a workshop in personal hygiene taught by Dr. "Venereal" Wang. Siwen, a virgin himself, dreads any bad P.R. from "Saigon Rose" (slang for a particularly virulent strain of v.d.) and so demands the finest conveniences and conditions for "servicing the Yanks." "Sanitation above all.... Do you think U.S. dollars will float out of their pockets in crummy rooms like that?" The Americans must not leave with a poor impression of Taiwan; not only Dong Siwen and the Big 4 but the entire nation would lose face. One of the most carefully wrought narratives in contemporary Chinese literature, Rose, Rose, I Love You will appeal not only to readers of fiction but also to those interested in Taiwanese identity and the effects of Westernization on Asian society.

Author: Rosecrans Baldwin
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
A self-described Francophile from when he was little, Rosecrans Baldwin always dreamed of living in Paris—drinking le café, eating les croissants, walking in les jardins—so when an opportunity presented itself to work for an advertising agency in Paris, he couldn't turn it down. Despite the fact that he had no experience in advertising. And despite the fact that he barely spoke French. After an unimaginable amount of red tape and bureaucracy, Rosecrans and his wife packed up their Brooklyn apartment and left the Big Apple for the City of Light. But when they arrived, things were not eactly what Rosecrans remembered from a family vacation when he was nine years old. Paris, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down is a nimble comic account of observing the French capital from the inside out. It is an exploration of the Paris of Sarkozy, text-message romances, smoking bans, and a McDonald's beneath the Louvre—the story of an American who arrives loving Paris all out of proportion, but finds life there to be completely unlike what he expected. Over eighteen months, Rosecrans must rely on his dogged American optimism to get him through some very unromantic situations—at work (writing booklets on how to breast-feed, raise, and nurture children), at home (trying to finish writing his first novel in an apartment surrounded on all sides by construction workers), and at every confusing French dinner party in between. An offbeat update to the expat canon, Paris, I Love You is a book about a young man finding his preconceptions replaced by the oddities of a vigorous, nervy city—which is just what he needs to fall in love with Paris for the second time.

EMPATHY IS THE KEY: NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE IN THE LIFE OF AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP, EMPATHY IS THE QUALITY WE NEED. "After all is said and done, to thrive in an intimate relationship, the quality most required is that of empathy extended from each partner to the other. We can attain this state after both partners have learned to know and accept themselves, and after they know and fully accept the other. In addition to empathy, we need to become curious and diligent students of our relationship, the We that we create, which is an entity unto itself and is as real as each of us as individuals." In If I Love You, Why Is It So Hard to Live With You?, Dr. Gleeson discusses how we can tackle the process of learning how to know and accept ourselves, how we can make a healthy choice of intimate partner, and how we can come to understand our relationship.

This is the story of a complete transformation—the rebirth of myself as a deeply spiritual person.

In this lifetime, in this existence, I was given the opportunity to extinguish those behaviours—put them to rest, conquer and defeat them for evermore. The purpose of this book is simply to share my journey with you, my beautiful children, and all those who want to change their lives, but just don’t know where to start. It is a sharing of my triumphal journey to love and happiness, but most importantly for me, to freedom, the freedom of my soul to live in my Truth. This is what I feel inside my soul every day. I found the courage to take the leap.

I Never Loved a Man the Way I Loved You: Aretha Franklin, Respect, and the Making of a Soul Music Masterpiece presents the remarkable story of how The Queen of Soul created what Rolling Stone called “the greatest soul album ever made.” The album she recorded that earned soul legend Aretha Franklin her first major hits after eleven previous efforts, I Never Loved A Man the Way I Loved You was a pop and soul music milestone. Apart from its status as a #1 hit record, the album also had a much wider cultural impact. By early 1967, when the album was released, the Civil Rights Movement was well underway; Aretha’s music gave it its theme song. And the #1 Billboard pop chart single “Respect”—written by Otis Redding—not only won two Grammys for best R&B recording and best R&B solo female vocal performance, it became a passionate call to arms for the burgeoning feminist movement. Matt Dobkin has unearthed a wonderful story of the creation of an album that goes far beyond anything that’s been written about Aretha before. With scores of interviews—including ones with Atlantic Records’ famed producer Jerry Wexler, and the Muscle Shoals session musicians who recorded with Aretha—I Never Loved A Man the Way I Love You is the story of a great artistic achievement. It’s also the story of a star who is both more complex and determined than her modern image as a diva indicates.

Publisher: Acacia Publishing
SYNOPSIS This is a courageously honest story of love, of hate, of joy, of hardship, of success, of loss. Ultimately, it is the story of two people who survive together and apart 57 years of marriage. In the final analysis, this narrative reveals the triumph of love over all adversity, expressed in a last letter from a loving wife left, once more, to face her life alone. The first part of this autobiographical memoir is based on nearly 800 letters written between the author and her husband of two months, following his deployment to the European War front and his subsequent fifteen month tour-of-duty. A Corporal in the 592nd Field Artillery Battalion, attached to the nearly decimated 106th Infantry Division in the infamous Battle of the Bulge breakthrough by the German forces on December 16, 1944, Cpl Nebeker survived all odds and spent the next year serving in front line duty, returning home in January of 1946. Meanwhile, Helen had relocated to an unfamiliar life in Arizona, her husbands former home, where she remained until his demobilization in 1946.The second half of this memoir delineates in sweet detail the all-too-common experiences of returning servicemen and their wives, as they faced life together in the hard world of post-war survival and the less-than-perfect lives they had so long imagined.

I Love You Baby sets out to show parents how they can meet the emotional needs of their children, so that they will become happy and well balanced adults. Since adults also have emotional needs, parents are shown how to meet them for one another, so that their relationship will endure until the nurturing of their children is completed.Adult relationships and the rearing of children are based on love and so the book explains the differences between romantic love between parents and the love between parents and their children.Most parents take care of their children’s physical needs very adequately, especially when they are babies and those needs are simple; being fed, kept warm and dry. It is in the area of emotional support that they often fail them, such as providing affirmation, addressing problems and imposing proper discipline. Inadequate parenting is a consequence of parents having virtually no knowledge of how good parenting is achieved because nobody ever told them how it should be done, and they did not learn about it from their own parents. For, unlike other jobs, there is no training and no exam to pass before one becomes a ‘qualified’ parent. This book provides all the information parents will ever need to have a solid partnership and achieve a good standard of parenting. It also encourages prospective mums and dads to face the reality of what can go wrong because of a lack of knowledge. It is written by an author who has spent many years working with voluntary organisations to help troubled adults work through childhood traumas, that, in turn, led Jonathan to devise a course in psychology for parents...which has become I Love You Baby.
