Price: $8.99
A Psychological Novel for anyone interested in their own growth from childhood to the authentic person they were meant to be...Richard Eisenman is trying to live up to a wildly demanding self-image. His do-gooder obsession has led him to a painful life of compromising himself to accommodate others. Fed up with his sacrifices, he decides that the only facesaving way out of his marriage and career is to fake his own death - rather than look bad to himself or others. But can he really start all over? During a good-bye weekend with his aging parents, things shift radically when he meets up with the mysterious man who is supposed to help him vanish…and Eisenman begins to reexamine his life to understand how family, ancestry, genetics, religion, school, friends, history and popular culture have all contributed to his desperation to always do the right thing.

    How we get the way we are is truly a marvel worthy of careful consideration. This guy reminds me of me.

    “Laugh aloud funny, vividly and realistically voiced, painfully cruel and sweetly restorative of hope, this novel/narrative invites us to awaken to and hearken anew to our own voice and life path. Try it, you'll like it. A hilarious, painfully accurate and poignant read for all of us who are just trying to do our best by each other, and not lose ourselves or our humanity in the process. Dr. Carl Rogers - my colleague and one of the most influential psychologists in American history - wrote, ‘Who I am is good enough if I can just be it genuinely.’ For me Howard's novel captures perfectly the positive search for that authenticity for any or all of us, as we work against sometimes very heavy odds to get ourselves back on the path to an unencumbered selfhood.” Dr. Gay Barfield - Former Director Carl Rogers Institute
