A guide for any man to deal effectively with the difficulties and assaults waged against him in this life. Through no fault of his own, King David of Israel lost all of his support systems, and even his dignity. He responded by escaping to the cave of Adullam. There he met with God and was transformed, along with the four hundred beleaguered men who joined him there. He left us a record of his struggles and triumphs in certain Psalms composed in the time of his cave-dwelling days. There was a clear pattern in the habits of David and those men that can build us up today, so that we might become the masculine wall of security for the people in our day, that they were said to have been in theirs. Jeff Voth has proven the positive impact of these habits in the lives of men in his doctoral thesis, and communicates these truths in clear language. Become a mighty man of God. Become a Caveman.

Grand Prize Winner of the 2015 Green Book Festival Mark Sundeen's new book, The Unsettlers, is coming in January 2017 from Riverhead Books In 2000, Daniel Suelo left his life savings-all thirty dollars of it-in a phone booth. He has lived without money-and with a newfound sense of freedom and security-ever since. The Man Who Quit Money is an account of how one man learned to live, sanely and happily, without earning, receiving, or spending a single cent. Suelo doesn't pay taxes, or accept food stamps or welfare. He lives in caves in the Utah canyonlands, forages wild foods and gourmet discards. He no longer even carries an I.D. Yet he manages to amply fulfill not only the basic human needs-for shelter, food, and warmth-but, to an enviable degree, the universal desires for companionship, purpose, and spiritual engagement. In retracing the surprising path and guiding philosophy that led Suelo into this way of life, Sundeen raises provocative and riveting questions about the decisions we all make, by default or by design, about how we live-and how we might live better.

Cave Paintings and the Human Spirit

The Origin of Creativity and Belief

The magnificent prehistoric art discovered in caves throughout France and Spain raises many questions about early human culture. What do these superbly rendered paintings of horses, bison, and enigmatic human figures and symbols mean? How can we explain the sudden flourishing of artistic creativity at such a high level? And in what ways does this artwork reflect the underlying belief system, worldview, and life of the people who created it? In this fascinating discussion of ancient art and religion, Dr David S Whitley -- one of the world's leading experts on cave paintings--guides the reader in an exploration of these intriguing questions, while sharing his firsthand experiences in visiting these exquisite, breath-taking sites. To grasp what drove these ancient artists to create these masterpieces, and to understand the origin of myth and religion, as Whitley explains, is to appreciate what makes us human. Moreover, he broadens our understanding of the genesis of creativity and myth by proposing a radically new and original theory that weds two seemingly warring camps from separate disciplines. On the one hand, archaeologists specialising in prehistoric cave paintings have argued that the visionary rituals of shamans led to the creation of this expressive art. They consider shamanism to be the earliest known form of religion. By contrast, evolutionary psychologists view the emergence of religious beliefs as a normal expression of the human mind. In their eyes, the wild and ecstatic trances of shamans were a form of aberrant behaviour. Far from being typical representatives of ancient religion, shamans were exceptions to the normal rule of early religion. Whitley resolves the controversy by interweaving the archaeological evidence with the latest findings of cutting-edge neuroscience. He thereby rewrites our understanding of shamanism and its connection with artistic creativity, myth, and religion. Combining a colourful narrative describing Whitley's personal explorations at key archaeological sites with robust scientific research, Cave Paintings and the Human Spirit makes for engrossing reading. It provides a profound and poignant perspective on what it means to be human.

"At the time I didn't know what my choice was; to either swallow my pride or swallow my own vomit.” “Who’s the daddy? Apparently it’s me.” “Sometimes you simply cannot be a man. And I don’t mean you ‘cannot be a man’ in the chivalrous, self-preservation sense. I’m talking about the times when fear takes such a strong hold that your genitalia actually folds back in and on itself, retracting into the pelvic cavity...” “Years earlier I had struck a friendship with a beautiful young woman who believed in the occult but I didn’t really know what exactly that meant. I decided the only thing I could do was get out of town, go and see her and pray that she had something that would help me recover from the insanity I was going through.” Over forty men tell their stories. Reaching deep into the ‘man cave’ we find a combination of humorous, abrasive, personal, intimate and confronting stories that these men have shared. They are “dying to be heard”...literally. There are men in this world hurting, some are anxious, depressed and some, even suiciding. Many of these topics are still considered too taboo to openly discuss, yet in the meantime men continue to suffer in silence. Let their voices reach you, their stories be told, and let them no longer be dying to be heard With my previous book “Women and their stories”, true stories about women of all ages and races, written in their own words and released on International Women’s Day this year, my latest book entitled “MENDEMIC”, is a compilation of short stories about true life events of 40 real gutsy and brave boys and men. It’s all about giving men a voice, showing that it’s OK to “OPEN UP', not 'SHUT UP', what it’s like in the “Man Cave” and is also about promoting men’s health. Likewise, this time around, it’s being released to coincide with a date especially dedicated to men – Movember and International Men's Day. Cindy is a freelance author, blogger from Melbourne, Australia. Self-published, she is launching her latest book at Without Pier Galleries on Friday 15th November (7:30-10:30). A charity auction will also be held, with proceeds going to the Movember Foundation and Kane’s Crusade (a local charity group which raises awareness of suicide in young men).

Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

Practical Guide for Improving Communication and Getting What You Want in Your Relationships

Popular marriage counselor and seminar leader John Gray provides a unique, practical and proven way for men and women to communicate and relate better by acknowledging the differences between them. Once upon a time Martians and Venusians met, fell in love, and had happy relationships together because they respected and accepted their differences. Then they came to earth and amnesia set in: they forgot they were from different planets. Using this metaphor to illustrate the commonly occurring conflicts between men and women, Gray explains how these differences can come between the sexes and prohibit mutually fulfilling loving relationships. Based on years of successful counseling of couples, he gives advice on how to counteract these differences in communication styles, emotional needs and modes of behavior to promote a greater understanding between individual partners. Gray shows how men and women react differently in conversation and how their relationships are affected by male intimacy cycles ("get close", "back off"), and female self-esteem fluctuations ("I'm okay", "I'm not okay"). He encourages readers to accept the other gender's particular way of expressing love, and helps men and women learn how to fulfill each other's emotional needs. With practical suggestions on how to reduce conflict, crucial information on how to interpret a partner's behavior and methods for preventing emotional "trash from the past" from invading new relationships, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus is a valuable tool for couples who want to develop deeper and more satisfying relationships with their partners.

The Huautla in Mexico is the deepest cave in the Western Hemisphere, possibly the world. Shafts reach skyscraper-depths, caverns are stadium-sized, and sudden floods can drown divers in an instant. With a two-decade obsession, William Stone and his 44-member team entered the sinkhole at Sotano de San Augustin. The first camp settled 2,328 feet below ground in a cavern where headlamps couldn't even illuminate the walls and ceiling. The second camp teetered precariously above an underground canyon where two subterranean rivers collided. But beyond that lay the unknown territory -- a flooded corridor that had blocked all previous comers, claimed a diver's life, and drove the rest of the team back. Except for William Stone and Barbara am Ende, who forged on for 18 more days, with no hope of rescue, to set the record for the deepest cave dive in the Western Hemisphere.
