Reach Your Self-love Relationship Goals

Celebrity love coach and positive psychology expert Robert Mack has helped millions of people transform their love lives on and off television. In his most recent release, he shares a creative new outlook on the meaning of true love.

A distillation of penetrating self-help statements on how to love. In his characteristic humor and wit, Mack explores the frustration and futility of seeking love from others, instead of yourself—and in the future, instead of in the present. With intimacy and warmth, each expression, aphorism, and instruction in Love from the Inside Out shares a personal and professional inquiry on love and on the relationship with love that has been taught.

Burn away antiquated and attached relationship goals conditioning. Love from the Inside Out combines the no-nonsense style of Dr. Laura Schlessinger books with the transformative insight of marriage counseling books and relationship books. Inside, Mack challenges our most fundamental understanding of love and how to love by interlacing Christian mysticism, Buddhist principles, Hindu breathing exercises, and positive thinking in psychology practices. Using the quick tips, tricks, and teachings in this book, you will question the nonconstructive beliefs of typical self-help books and relationship books for women and finally create a healthy relationship with love.

In Love from the Inside Out, find answers to questions such as:

  • How can I overcome the psychology of being alone and learn how to love myself first?
  • How can I keep my relationship goals sexy, fresh, and alive?
  • How can I create healthy relationships without being overly attached?

Love from the Inside Out is a wonderful addition to any shelf of psychology books, books on marriage and relationships, celebrity books, or self-help books. If you enjoyed Relationship Goals by Michael Todd or Single, Dating, Engaged, Married by Ben Stuart, you’ll love this encouraging book!

The Strong Black Woman

Major Health Crisis Among Black Women Generated from Systemic Racism  

“Marita Golden’s The Strong Black Woman busts the myth that Black women are fierce and resilient by letting the reader in under the mask that proclaims ‘Black don’t crack.’” ―Karen Arrington, coach, mentor, philanthropist, and author of NAACP Image Award-winning Your Next Level Life

#1 New Release in Reference

Meet Black women who have learned through hard lessons the importance of self-care and how to break through the cultural and family resistance to seeking therapy and professional mental health care.

The Strong Black Woman Syndrome. For generations, in response to systemic racism, Black women and African American culture created the persona of the Strong Black Woman, a woman who, motivated by service and sacrifice, handles, manages, and overcomes any problem, any obstacle.  The syndrome calls on Black women to be the problem-solvers and chief caretakers for everyone in their lives―never buckling, never feeling vulnerable, and never bothering with their pain.

Hidden mental health crisis of anxiety and depression. To be a Black woman in America is to know you cannot protect your children or guarantee their safety, your value is consistently questioned, and even being “twice as good” is often not good enough. Consequently, Black women disproportionately experience anxiety and depression. Studies now conclusively connect racism and mental health―and physical health.

Take care of your emotional health. You deserve to be emotionally healthy for yourself and those you love. More and more young Black women are re-examining the Strong Black Woman syndrome and engaging in self-care practices that change their lives.

Hear the stories of Black women who:

  • Asked for help
  • Built lives that offer healing
  • Learned to accept healing

If you have read The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental HealthThe Racial Healing Handbook, or Black FatigueThe Strong Black Woman should be your next read.

What Was Sex Like for a Medieval Woman?

“Wickedly entertaining, informative and thought-provoking. An insightful, modern look at the lives of women as they were.” —Dr. Markus Kerr, PhD, MDR.

#1 New Release in Etiquette Guides & Advice

An inside look at sexual practices in medieval times. Were medieval women slaves to their husband's desires, jealously secured in a chastity belt in his absence? Was sex a duty or could it be a pleasure? Did a woman have a say about her own female sexuality, body, and who did or didn’t get up close and personal with it? No. And yes. It’s complicated.

Romance, courtship, and behind closed doors. The intimate lives of medieval women were as complex as for modern women. They loved and lost, hoped and schemed, were lifted up and cast down. They were hopeful and lovelorn. Some had it forced upon them, others made aphrodisiacs and dressed for success. Some were chaste and some were lusty. Having sex was complicated. Not having sex, was even more so.

Inside The Very Secret Sex Lives of Medieval Women, a fascinating book about life during medieval times, you will discover tantalizing true stories about medieval women and a myriad of historical facts. Learn about:

  • The true experiences of women from all classes, including women who made history
  • The dos and don’ts in the bedroom
  • Sexy foods and how to have them
  • All you need to know for your wedding night, and well as insider medical advice
  • How to get pregnant (and how not to), and more

Badass Victorian Women

“Wild Women is a delightful collection of riveting stories about our independent, iconoclastic, and utterly outrageous foremothers.” – Vicki Leon, author of Uppity Women of Ancient Times.

#1 New Release in Politics & Social Sciences, Reference

Enjoy a fascinating and sometimes humorous glimpse into the lives of over one hundred, 19th-century Victorian era American women who refused to whittle themselves down to the Victorian model of proper womanhood. Included in Wild Women are 50-black-and-white photos from the era.

During the Victorian era a woman’s pedestal was her prison.

“Women should not be expected to write, or fight, or build, or compose scores. She does all by inspiring man to do all.” ─ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“There is nothing more dangerous for a young woman than to rely chiefly upon her intellectual powers, her wit, her imagination, her fancy.” ─ Godey’s Lady’s Book magazine

But, scores of nineteenth-century American women chose to live life on their terms. In this book you will meet women who refused to remain on a Victorian pedestal. In San Francisco a courtesan appeared as a plaintiff in court, suing her clients for fraud. In Montana a laundress in her seventies decked a gentleman who refused to pay his bill. A forty-three-year-old schoolteacher plunged down Niagara Falls in a wooden barrel. A frail lighthouse keeper pulled twenty-two sinking sailors out of the ocean off Rhode Island. A pair of Colorado madams fought a public pistol duel over their mutual beau. Two lady lovebirds were legally wed in Michigan. An ad hoc abolitionist spirited away scores of slaves on the Underground Railroad. A Secessionist spy swallowed a secret message as she was arrested, claiming that no one could capture her soul.

Readers of books for women such as Women Who Run with the Wolves or Badass Affirmations will love this book about Victorian women who refused to accept the gender roles of their day.
