Tyrese Gibson, multiplatinum R&B singer and movie star, and Rev Run of Run DMC and star of Run’s House present a bold , honest, and uncensored loo k into the male mind.

Tyrese and Rev are unlikely best friends—Rev is married with six kids and Tyrese is a single dad still hesitant to settle down. But after an unexpected disagreement in which Rev insisted that marriage is forever, and Tyrese pushed that you could bail when the sex went bad, the two decided not just to agree to disagree but to team up and open their debate to a larger audience. Even though they’re at different points in their journeys, both have clear insights on what it takes to make a relationship work and what can sink it instantly.

Manology is a guide to regaining your relationship confidence and weeding out the cheaters, MANipulators, and pimps from the good men. Just follow Tyrese and Rev’s advice and finally understand the reasons behind your man’s actions. Some men’s behavior can’t be changed, but it’s better to face the truth. No matter how painful or distressing that truth might be, if you know it, you can confront it and move past it. Tyrese and Rev acknowledge that it can be difficult for men to open up, but they present real strategies for men and women to have honest and open discussions about relationship expectations.

With Rev’s hard-earned knowledge on what it takes to make a marriage work, and Tyrese’s sometimes uncomfortable but always straight talk on the single man’s mind-set, Manology is your one true source of knowledge to help you take control of your love life and truly understand your man.

Tyrese Gibson
Actor, singer, songwriter Tyrese Gibson crafts a memoir filled with every emotion and life experience one could possibly imagine. With personal experiences paired with reflective questions based on his extremely popular blog piece, "The Love Circle", Tyrese hopes to inspire readers to pursue their dreams and not let life's obstacles stand in the way.

HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY is organized into a series of fundamental questions that helped Tyrese redefine who he was as a human being, and evolve into a new man. Tyrese stresses that life becomes infinitely richer when one takes the time to know him or herself and understand the true meaning of peace and fulfillment. This book is a guide to helping yourself, using his experiences as a learning tool. "It's not about talking down to people, it's about elevating them," Tyrese says.

Some of Tyrese's chapter-based questions include: How much do you love yourself? How much do you want for yourself? Why do men cheat? What is your bottom line? Are you ready for the next level?

Quotes and Reviews:
"Tyrese wholeheartedly shares his life experiences and how he discovered a new road map of conscious compassion and love to define his true potential." --Deepak Chopra, author of The Soul of Leadership

"HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY is a triumph. Tyrese will shock and amaze you with how he overcame the odds and became a superstar. This star of the Transformers sequel will show you how to transform your life in this amazingly candid book!" --Rev Run

"I've watched Tyrese for many years - I've watched him succeed; I've watched him fail; I've seen him as a beneficiary of serendipity, and I've watched him suffer at his own hand. And in the recent years, as we've become friends, I've witnessed Tyrese Gibson learn how to get out of his own way as he wrestled his destiny from the fickle hands of fate." --Will Smith

Have you ever wondered why are you here? Have you ever wanted to know so desperately why everyone else seems to understand life, and why you just couldn’t seem to get it? It may just seem like everyone else finds their purpose(s), and you can’t. Does it sometimes feel like you are trying everything you possibly can, and no matter how perfect a situation, in your life-experience, seems to be, there is always something missing? If these questions have ever crossed your mind, this book is for you. This book explains how you can obtain everything you have EVER DESIRED. Better still, it teaches you application and execution of these tools, as well. Applied in everything from your business or personal life- experience, this guide is the first in a series to break ground for self-expansion in a way that you never knew were available to you. For example, picture yourself as you have always desired yourself to be. If you are ready to do whatever it takes to obtain that reality, look no further! This universe is your canvas, this guide is the road map to your Mona Lisa that is your life. As the author I can tell you, the life lessons, experiences, and transformations that ARE taking place inside you, even as you are currently reading this passage, cannot be taught in a textbook. This series IS my life-experience, and how I changed it, to be exactly what I have always DREAMED, and had no idea was truly possible from whence I came! I ASSURE you, I couldn’t have been further from the truth! So I’ll see you in there!

Optical Materials presents, in a unified form, the underlying physical and structural processes that determine the optical behavior of materials. It does this by combining elements from physics, optics, and materials science in a seamless manner, and introducing quantum mechanics when needed. The book groups the characteristics of optical materials into classes with similar behavior. In treating each type of material, the text pays particular attention to atomic composition and chemical makeup, electronic states and band structure, and physical microstructure so that the reader will gain insight into the kinds of materials engineering and processing conditions that are required to produce a material exhibiting a desired optical property. The physical principles are presented on many levels, including a physical explanation, followed by formal mathematical support and examples and methods of measurement. The reader may overlook the equations with no loss of comprehension, or may use the text to find appropriate equations for calculations of optical properties.Presents the optical properties of metals, insulators, semiconductors, laser materials, and non-linear materialsPhysical processes are discussed and quantified using precise mathematical treatment, followed by examples and a discussion of measurement methodsAuthors combine many years of expertise in condensed matter physics, classical and quantum optics, and materials scienceThe text is written on many levels and will benefit the novice as well as the expertExplains the concept of color in materialsExplains the non-linear optical behavior of materials in a unified formAppendices present rigorous derivations
