Between Trapezes   Flying Into a New Life with the Greatest of Ease, Blanke, Gail
1 Blanke, Gail Between Trapezes Flying Into a New Life with the Greatest of Ease
Rodale Books 2004 1579549284 / 9781579549282 Hardcover Very Good 
With record unemployment, divorce rates and financial instability, more people than ever before will find themselves in transition. Most of us are afraid of the in-between times-those stretches between jobs, between lovers, between a past that is stifling our dreams and a future that is scarily, precariously unknown. We are so reluctant to face uncertainty that often we cling to a view of ourselves that we know can never allow us to soar, that keeps us from leaping headlong into an exuberant life.

But what if we could learn to embrace uncertainty and propel ourselves forward with a sense of curiosity and adventure, rather than fear and trepidation?

In Between Trapezes, Gail Blanke helps us to do just that. Blanke, the bestselling author of In My Wildest Dreams: Simple Steps to a Fabulous Life, shows us that the "in-between" can be the best of times. She offers a practical and inspirational guide that will enable us to let go without our safety nets beneath, and fly through life's transitions with the daring of the circus trapeze artist.

Unlike other books that concentrate solely on surviving career and other life transitions, Between Trapezes exhorts us all to reject the routine and predictable in favor of the adventurous and the serendipitous. With exercises and motivating tales of real people from all walks of life who summoned the courage to welcome a new start and create a whole new self, Gail Blanke demonstrates that the real thrill in life is not in the landing; it's in the flying. And she reminds us that the greatest flyers are always the greatest fallers, and falling is not the same as failing. No one ever reaches those dizzying heights without taking a few plunges!

Ex-Library; Exposes the fallacies and failures of psychological counseling theories and therapies for one purpose: to call the church back to curing souls by means of the Word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit rather than by man-made means and opinions.

Stiffed  the betrayal of the American man, Faludi, Susan
3 Faludi, Susan Stiffed the betrayal of the American man
New York W. Morrow and Co. 1999 068812299X / 9780688122997 Hardcover Good in Good dust jacket 
Ex-Library; This book focuses on the masculinity crisis plaguing our culture at the end of the '90s, an era of massive layoffs, "Angry White Male" politics, and Million Man marches. As much as the culture wants to proclaim that men are made miserable--or brutal or violent or irresponsible--by their inner nature and their hormones, Faludi finds that even in the world they supposedly own and run, men are at the mercy of cultural forces that disfigure their lives and destroy their chance at happiness. As traditional masculinity continues to collapse, the once-valued male attributes of craft, loyalty, and social utility are no longer honored, much less rewarded. Faludi's journey through the modern masculine landscape takes her into the lives of individual men whose accounts reveal the heart of the male dilemma.

Faludi's journey through the modern masculine landscape takes her into the lives of individual men whose accounts reveal the heart of the male dilemma. Stiffed brings us into the world of industrial workers, sports fans, combat veterans, evangelical husbands, militiamen, astronauts, and troubled "bad" boys--whose sense that they've lost their skills, jobs, civic roles, wives, teams, and a secure future is only one symptom of a larger and historic betrayal.

Flux: women on sex, work, kids, love, and life in a half-changed world, Orenstein, Peggy
6 Orenstein, Peggy Flux: women on sex, work, kids, love, and life in a half-changed world
Doubleday New York c2000. 0385498861 / 9780385498869 Hardcover Good in Good dust jacket 
In her latest book, Orenstein looks at womanhood and what it means to be a woman at the beginning of this century. After talking to over two hundred women between the ages of twenty-five and forty-five, she has blended their voices into a compelling narrative that allows the reader to "eavesdrop"--to get deep inside the lives and choices of other women--and share their thoughts on ambition and power, the experience of sex and love, the meaning of motherhood, what it means to remain single and childless, and how these things influence the way we assemble the pieces of our lives.

In Flux, Orenstein explores the half-changed aspect of today's world and the ways women still struggle to live full lives and to reach a true balance of the personal and professional. With richly textured narrative portraits and extraordinary depth of reporting, this book offers an opportunity to take part in a conversation with women across generations and lines of experience, an exchange that rarely happens these days.
