Odd One Out: Radical Revelations on Relationships, Self-Help, and Personal Growth

I have been the Odd One Out all my life personally and professionally. Being on the outside looking in I have thought about and questioned much of what we have been told by TED Talks, self- help gurus, psychologists, therapists, parents, and teachers. Much of what they have been telling us is not totally true or accurate.
For instance, is depression and despair the same thing? If not then they need to be treated differently. Is anger the same thing as rage? Absolutely not. Now at the almost tender age of 70 and still the outsider, I am going to ask you, the reader, to think differently about a whole host of things we’ve been taught or told about psychology, relationships, therapy, anger, men’s issues, love, poetry, and much more.

This is my latest book published by Teitelbaum Publishing.
