A Loving Family is an enchanted, magical, and spiritual view of our life experience here on earth. From beginning to end, this book wants to show the child that life is a gift that must be fully inspired, guided, and experienced because of love for our children, husband and wives, parents and grandparents, brothers and sisters, and the love of God for us, his children. It is a reminder to children of all ages, and even to adults, of where we came from, our Creator; the importance of love in a family; and of our mission on this beautiful planet earth as humans. Children need to feel, see, and learn about love. They need to know that we came from love and were created with love by the Creator and our parents. Therefore, we are beings of love. And love is all there is. It is the meaning of life, and it is the life force that can save our world, and that life force is God. God is love.

'She'd done more to belittle, undermine and scar me, with her ten years of scorn and hatred, than Starling with his brutal physical batterings or any of the others with their attempts at forced sexual contact. But no-one gets jailed for what they say, even when it amounts to deliberate mental torture...'As Paul Connolly struggled to leave behind his painful, humiliating childhood in the notorious St Leonard's children's home, the ghosts of his past would not let go. The paedophiles and sadists had damaged so many kids. Some had died, from suicide or heroin. Others, like Paul, had emerged, battered and illiterate, to try to find a place in the world. When a fall from a roof shattered his boxing ambitions, he survived in a brutal underworld of routine violence, before eventually building a career as a celebrity fitness trainer, working with the stars of fashion and film.After Against All Odds became a surprise bestseller, everything changed for Paul. He found himself speaking at the House of Lords, appearing on TV and getting involved in projects with abused kids and illiterate adults. But a rare heart infection almost killed him, and the old demons still haunted him.Four years later, Paul has made a new world for himself, centred on his young family and a successful training business that mends broken bodies, builds confidence and changes lives for the better. His story is a remarkable tale of endurance and survival - vivid, disturbing, but ultimately uplifting, as the beaten child who was once told 'You're rubbish; you'll never be worth a thing' becomes a man with the heart to love, live and embrace the future.

For most people, family life means both love and compromise. Within families where one or more members have Asperger Syndrome (AS), this compromise becomes yet more crucial to mutual happiness. In this book, the McCabe family discuss how Patrick's AS affects each relationship. Estelle, Patrick's wife, talks about how she has adjusted her speech and social life in order to live peacefully with her husband. In turn, Patrick discusses how he has learnt to accommodate Estelle's needs and his teenage son's growing independence to his desire for strict routine and clear communication. Jared explains how his father's AS has affected growing up and describes ways in which issues can be resolved without either losing face with his peers or upsetting his parents. Focusing positively on the relationships that are both the most important and the most difficult to maintain, this book is invaluable for anyone closely involved with AS.

Within the throes of a madly passionate romance is the most ghastly soul rape and mind crime conceivable. The Great American "Psychopathic" Love Story exists in a world where nothing is as real as perceived. Beneath the surface of what seems to be a fairy tale romance is the outline for what may be the perfect murder, and if you are naive enough to think it can't happen to you, you're wrong, ... dead wrong. Loving A Narcissist is the diary of a man being vicimized by a lethal narcissist, from beginning to end as it happens. Be there as he learns about narcissism and as he searches for a way to completely heal from the abuse. Many readers/victims praise this book for helping them heal as well. Steven thought he was writing about the phenomenal love he and Ashley had for each other. He didn't know that he was actually documenting the manipulation and torment experienced by the victim of a highly skilled emotional vampire. An endearing love story that is insanity in the raw, and just when you think it is all over, it begins again before leading to a shocking ending that will not soon be forgotten. Read this before purchasing this book: Many victims of narcissistic abuse buy books on the subject just to make them feel better by reading about what evil monsters the narcissists are. Granted, they have suffered tremendously, but this type of victim wallows in misery and are not able to heal or move beyond the abuse. If you are looking for a book that just repeats what hundreds of others already outline, then this book is not for you. This book is a memoir from the perspective of the victim as the mental and emotional abuse is taking place. It portrays the confusion that comes from abrupt abandonment and ostracization by a loved one. Through the victim's eyes, you will experience what it is to be "Gaslighted" by a narcissist, which is, idealization, discard, and devalue. When a narcissist is victimizing a person, the abused becomes someone they are not, and behave in ways out of the norm. Where some may view the behavior as childish or immature, it is actually a person fighting to hang onto his or her sanity. This is "Loving a Narcissist." "Dynamic person stylized writing. Brilliant! A death to birth with a delivery that is painful as bloody hell." - Becky Joyce Reed (Author of Life in the Aftermath of a Narcissist) "Thank you Steven from the bottom of my heart. I was completely destroyed by my relationship with a Narcissist. Your book was the turning point for me and saved my life." -Debbie Perez "Congratulations on writing a wonderful and powerful book. Yours is a very important story to tell - because it's from a man's viewpoint (not a perspective we hear from enough)." - Leslie Morgan Steiner (Author of the New York Times best selling memoir "Crazy Love") This book saved my life. - Debby Perez Everyone should read this. These psychopaths are multiplying like crazy and we need to know how to identify them for our own sakes and for the sake of society. This is one story out of too many that can teach us what to look out for. - Linda Freeman Dear Steven, I received your book on a Friday, and could not put it down, yet at times the pain I felt for you was unbearable. I could so relate though to the pain. Steven, I just finished reading your book "Loving a Narcissist" and I wanted to tell you how moved I was by your honesty and revealing your vulnerability. Reading it, I cried for you sometimes. Thank you for telling us your story. It doesn't just happen to women. Be well and blessed ... I think you are now. - Liz Davies
