Summary

Updated to commemorate its 20th anniversary, this classic resource further explores the effects of grief and sheds new light on how to begin to take effective actions to complete the grieving process and work towards recovery and happiness. 
Incomplete recovery from grief can have a lifelong negative effect on the capacity for happiness. Drawing from their own histories as well as from others', the authors illustrate how it is possible to recover from grief and regain energy and spontaneity.  
Based on a proven program, The Grief Recovery Handbook offers grievers the specific actions needed to move beyond loss. New material in this edition includes guidance for dealing with:

·  Loss of career and financial issues 
·  Loss of health 
·  Growing up in an alcoholic or dysfunctional home 
The Grief Recovery Handbook is a groundbreaking, classic handbook that everyone should have in their library.  
“This book is required for all my classes. The more I use this book, the more I believe that unresolved grief is the major underlying issue in most people’s lives. It is the only work of its kind that I know of that outlines the problem and provides the solution.”—Bernard McGrane, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology, Chapman University

    What is the cause of premature ejaculation? I am going to quickly talk about this before I go on to talk about how to tackle it.  There are different causes of premature ejaculations and I usually list about 6 of them but since this guide is all about getting results, I won't waste time with that.  Instead, I will summarize all of them into the main cause of premature ejaculation which is "your inability to handle the pleasure you are experiencing during sex".  That is what causes you to orgasm and ejaculate. And the orgasm comes from the stimulation or arousal that you experience when you are having sex.
    
    The main problem that causes most men to experience premature ejaculation is allowing themselves to experience sexual stimulation at a very high intensity level. Talking about intensity levels, it is very important for you to be aware of the various levels of arousal that you go through when you are having sex. I usually use a scale of levels 1 – 10 to explain this where level 1 is the stage where you are not aroused and level 10 is that level when you just cannot control yourself anymore. That is when you ejaculate. In between levels 1-10 are other levels.
    
    The levels you have to know how to control most are levels 7-9 because this is where you function during sex. At these levels, you are enjoying sex at a high intensity but it can still be put under control. Not knowing how to control arousal at these levels is what causes premature ejaculation and how to control it is the main thing I am going to be showing you in this guide.

    A leading clinician and researcher in the growing field of sexual medicine explains the connection between a man's sexual function and overall health--and delivers a 7-step action plan for him to enjoy sexual intimacy over his entire life.
     
    As director of the New York Center for Human Sexuality at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Dr. Ridwan Shabsigh treats thousands of patients with sexual dysfunctions. His more than 16 years of practice and trailblazing research at Columbia University have confirmed that health is intimately connected to sexual function and that the only way to treat declines in sexual desire, performance, and satisfaction is within the context of men's and couples' health.
     
    Now Dr. Shabsigh brings his expert recommendations to the public in this book. Refusing to accept that sexual dysfunction is the inevitable consequence of aging, he lays out a 7-step program to help all men improve their sexual relations--and their health. The book contains:A self-test that assesses the reader's health, sexual satisfaction, and risk for sexual dysfunctionInformation on how medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and depression affect a man's sex life--and how sexual dysfunction is the first warning sign of serious illnessRecommendations for improving lifestyle choices that cause sexual problems and comprehensive approaches to treating any sexual dysfunction
     
    The result is a book that helps every man achieve a lifetime of better sex and optimum health.

    All You Need Is Love and Other...

    Why is it so difficult to remain married in thetwenty-first century, and what can you do about it?  
    We all know that half of today's marriages end in divorce, but we tend to believe that our own marriages are safe. As psychiatrist John Jacobs explains in this fresh and impassioned book, marriages today are incredibly fragile, and unless a couple understands what is making contemporary marriage so vulnerable to dissolution, the marriage is at risk. 
    Part of the problem is that people refuse to see how social and historical forces have changed the very meaning of marriage, causing serious interpersonal unhappiness. Because of increased longevity, married people live together longer than at any time in history. There's been an erosion of the social and cultural forces that traditionally kept marriages together. Confusion over gender-role responsibilities, increased expectations of sexual satisfaction, and intense time pressures on couples to work and be successful all create marital stress. 
    And yet, most people don't acknowledge the problems in their marriage until it is too late. We tend to believe in the "lies of marriage" -- such concepts as soul mates, unconditional love, that children improve a relationship, that the sexual revolution has made marital sex more pleasurable, or that egalitarian marriage offers couples easy solutions -- and forget to engage in the constant hardwork required to keep our marriages alive. 
    Dr. Jacobs believes that most marriages have significant problems at some time, but until we recognize the new realities of marriage and develop the skills required to sustain a loving, intimate relationship, marriages are at risk. 
    Of course marriage is about love. But that's just the beginning.
