Ah-ha. I finally got the resort to work. I was being silly.

Currently running a deal on my shelf--the more you order the better the deal. See my sig for details. 


Art of Loving by Erich Fromm

The Art of Loving has helped hundreds of thousands of men and women achieve rich, productive lives by developing their hidden capacities for love.  An astonishing frank and candid book renowned psychoanalyst Erich Fromm, it explores the ways in which this extraordinary emotion can alter the course of one's life.

Most of us are unable to develop our ability to love on the only level that really counts-a love that is compounded of maturity, self-knowledge, and courage.  Learning to love demands practice and concentration.  Even more than any other art, it demands genuine insight and understanding.  In this startling book, Fromm discusses love in all aspects:  not only romantic love, so surrounded by false conceptions, but also love of parents for children, brotherly love, erotic.
