Recent university studies show that the most frequent reason relationships dissolve is not abuse, alcoholism, money, or even infidelity but rather a lack of emotional fulfillment. Most books on love and marriage focus on teaching communication and conflict skills but neglect to help couples with the other half of intimacy - separateness. The audiobook outlines a 12-stage model that provides long-term goals and focal points for dialogue that can help couples work through arguments, build healthy relationships, resolve past hurts, and foster closeness. Gurian also delves into differences in white and gray matter between the male and female brains (which may explain the varying needs for affection and independence), deviations in verbal-emotive development, and the effects these have on relationships. Michael Gurian, one of the world´s foremost authorities on gender dynamics with over 25 years of family and marital counseling practice, has authored 27 books on gender psychology published in 21 languages, many of them New York Times best sellers. The Gurian Institute, which he cofounded in 1996, conducts international research and corporate and government training for NASA, the US Department of the Treasury, Google, and Cisco, among others. Gurian´s work has been featured multiple times in nearly all the major media, including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Newsweek, Time, Psychology Today, AARP Magazine, People Magazine, Reader´s Digest, and the Wall Street Journal, and he has made numerous appearances on the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, PBS, and National Public Radio, to highlight a few. He´s a prolific speaker, traveling to dozens of cities annually to deliver keynote speeches at various schools and conferences, including Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, and Stanford University. 1.

Can our physical brains fully explain the phenomenon of our minds? The same question that Descartes pondered in the 17th century continues to fascinate philosophers, theologians, and scientists in the 21st. Now, in this engaging three-part series, your host, Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn, conducts wide-ranging interviews with 13 leading experts about the relationship between brain and mind. Each episode is crafted as a series of one-on-one interviews that respond to the title question. Can Brain Explain Mind? features an impressive array of authorities on neuroscience and philosophy, but two in particular stand out: Christof Koch and John Rogers Searle. In some ways, American neuroscientist Christof Koch and American philosopher John Rogers Searle embody two sides of the same coin. Since the early 1990s, Koch has studied consciousness as a scientifically tractable problem. Meanwhile Searle - a prolific and award-winning writer - is noted for his groundbreaking contributions to the philosophies of language, mind, and society. This series gives them the floor. You’ll hear in-depth and balanced arguments from men who have staked their careers on their reasoning. The range of experts, let alone the accomplishments of each, is too much to list here. But listen up for Google’s Director of Engineering and for the late Marvin Lee Minsky (1927-2016), who co-founded MIT’s AI laboratory (where the aforementioned Christof Koch worked after earning his doctorate in nonlinear information processing). Now is your chance to explore the most pressing questions of this day in age with a chorus of leading experts. Note: This audio series was originally produced by Closer to Truth - the television series created, written, and hosted by Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn and co-created, produced, and directed by Peter Getzels. 1.
