Great books find a permanent place in our consciousness. Their wisdom and teachings can be tapped at any time we need them.
Last week I took you on a tour of five books that rocked my world and gifted me with important life lessons. This week your Guy’s Guy presents the next five on the list, and they are equally important in their quality and teachings. So, let’s get right to part two of The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to … read more
Books can be powerful teachers. The special ones are just as influential as the most important people in our lives. I have been a voracious reader my entire life and cannot think of a time when I wasn’t in the process of devouring another book. Every book I’ve read has influenced me in some way, but a few stand out for their lessons and how they impacted my life. Some of them are funny, some are sad, but each … read more
Being a featured host of a growing Blog Talk Radio podcast has its advantages. I get to meet an array of very smart, cool and nice people from all walks of life, love and the pursuit of happiness. And I get to read many wonderful, spiritual books.

There are so many things wrong today—government shut downs, GMO’s, NSA snooping and Miley’s coated tongue.
It’s too easy to add to the list and bemoan our plight. Instead, let’s go back thirty years to 1983 and compare notes. That was the year Michael Jackson dominated the charts, the Swatch was launched, McNuggets came out and Lotus 1-2-3 was our preferred software. Here is my Guy’s Guy Guide to Things That Are Better Now. One caveat—technology is more advanced … read more
Being a Guy’s Guy is not all sex, drugs and rock n’ roll.
Reading keeps us in touch with our inner selves and reminds us of our collective connection to the universal consciousness. I’ve read hundreds of books in all genres, but I’m called back by great stories about regular people finding their paths and enlightenment and books about energy and spirituality. Life speeds by in a flash, and it’s important to take a breather now and then and … read more
Over the past thirty years the paths of women and men have changed dramatically. While women have been on straight trajectory of achievement, accomplishment, and long overdue recognition, men now find themselves in a tough spot. This comes at a time when men have never been freer to be who they want, but it’s also never been less clear who they are. My novel, The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Love, tackles this issue through the power of story that gives women a … read more
So you think you’ve got what it takes to write a novel?
Good for you, that’s a great start. I’ll bet you have a story in you that people would be interested in. The trick is finding the right story, finding your voice, weaving them together, and then learning how to sell your work. Easier said than done. Whenever I am asked about why I decided to write a novel I offer the same response. It has to be more … read more
Over the last twelve years every single aspect of my life has changed. Way back in early 2000 I recall looking out the window of my corner office at the global advertising conglomerate where I worked. I had recently been promoted to Executive Vice President and received a whopping pay raise. Outside my office sat my beautiful assistant. On the surface life seemed great, but something was gnawing at me inside, telling me that this was … read more
It’s hard to place The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Love in a particular genre – how do you describe it to people?
Great question. At first agents told me that since I was a guy, I should write a thriller. No, thanks. Then it was, why don’t you write the book with a female protagonist? No, thanks. Then they told me, the title sounds like the book is a non-fiction guide to getting laid. Why don’t you change the … read more
