Praise:
"Relationships are what make life worth living, but can also cause our greatest pains. Relationship Magic is a treasure full of practical information that can help you have healthier and more satisfying relationships and a happier life."—Daniel G. Amen, MD, Founder Amen Clinics and Author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life

"My partner of over forty years and I refer to a committed relationship as a 'conscious crucible.' With deep insight and practical wisdom Guy Finley addresses both the challenges and gifts that are present in a lasting, loving relationship. I fully recommend Relationship Magic for anyone who is walking the pilgrim path toward an enduring and caring relationship."—Justine Willis Toms, Host, New Dimensions Radio and Author of Small Pleasures: Finding Grace in a Chaotic World

"A great love story isn't like it is in the movies. It's not picture perfect and it's not without its flaws, it's raw and at times complicated. Guy Finley's Relationship Magic reads as authentic and relatable because it isn't about fluff and is anything but sugar-coated. It nails the hard stuff that we are scared to talk about and digs into the deep-rooted issues so that a strong foundation for growing and healing can begin. Relationship Magic is undeniably captivating while giving practical and constructive advice for the ages."—Francesca Luca, radio host

"Guy Finley gently turns our faces and hearts toward the light of higher possibilities for a loving relationship. He guides us toward responsibly taking the blame of pain out of our relationships. He kindly teaches us how to meet the moments of discord in self-reflecting ways. He is practical, poetic and profound. Your heart will recognize the truth of his words and as you put them into action, you will never be the same again. You will be free to love with a whole heart."—Linda Nichole Carrington, PhD, Author of Walking In Power: Liberate Your Past and Get Right With Yourself

"We need a light if we want to find a precious jewel in a dark and cluttered area. Guy shines a brilliant light on one of life's most priceless quests—how to have a healthy, fulfilling, and uplifting relationship. He shows us the root causes of why they fail and, more importantly, how they can be set right again. This book will open both your heart and mind."—Nayaswami Jyotish, Spiritual Director, Ananda Sangha Worldwide

“To live in accord with love is to set your heart on fire. In the crucible of such an inferno all convention burns away. What’s left is an entirely new kind of existence, one full of passion, presence, and infinite possibility.”

This book is a wake-up call from your own heart. It is a roadmap to love--not the romantic, familial or platonic kind, but a love that most of us have rarely tasted. This love exists prior to and apart from any specific type of expression. It is a dynamic, primal force that connects us with the surrounding universe, and provides the key to our deepest and most lasting fulfillment if we can learn to tap into its awesome power.

Raphael Cushnir’s own experience has taught him that we often close ourselves to love–that life’s challenges, losses, and disappointments can shut us down emotionally and physically, leaving us stagnant in our work and relationships, and feeling empty and alone. Setting Your Heart on Fire presents his invigorating, step-by-step process for reopening and reawakening your heart and spirit, and for learning to use this ever-present love to blaze through any obstacle you may face.

The Seven Invitations in this book will guide you through a courageous assessment of your choices, emotions, behaviors, and beliefs, revolutionizing your approach to stress and adversity, and revealing a brand new way of thinking and being. In accepting the Invitations, you will learn how to let go of harmful thoughts and heal deeply rooted emotional wounds. You will begin to open yourself to love’s creativity and wisdom, struggling less yet achieving more. You will discover how to infuse everyday experiences with a breathtaking sense of joy and wonder. And your relationships - with family, friends, co-workers and romantic partners - will become a vehicle for profound and thrilling change.

Each Invitation provides practical, easy-to-grasp examples that allow you to put its teachings immediately into practice. Over time, you will learn to access love in even the most difficult situations, unlocking the door to a fearless, authentic life. When your heart is on fire, the whole world is transformed by its light.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.
