5. The Psychology of Romantic Love by Nathaniel Branden, 1980, America

Here is THE BOOK you need to read if you would understand what is termed AUTHENTIC or ROMANTIC LOVE. If you understand and practice what this kind of rare love is, you will be fulfilled in your relationships if you can find another who is capable of living this along with you. A key idea is that of “Admiration” or value of another. The following are quotes from the book: “Authentic love between a man and a woman rests on and requires the free choice of each and cannot flourish in the context of submission to family or society, or religious authority; such love is based on admiration and mutual regard; and love is not an idle diversion but is of great importance to one's life. In the highest love we are admired for the things we wish to be admired for, and in a way and from a perspective that is in accord with our own view of life.

We are drawn to consciousnesses like our own. Romantic love entails a profound and shared sense of life. A sense of life is the emotional form in which we experience our deepest view of is the emotional corollary of a metaphysics...reflecting the subconsciously held sum of our broadest and deepest attitudes and conclusions concerning the world, life and ourselves. A 'soul mate' is one who shares, in important respects, our sense of life. In receiving admiration we feel visible, appreciated, loved, and thus reinforced in our love for our partner. In experiencing and expressing admiration, we feel pride in our choice of mate, confirmed in our judgement, and strengthened in our feelings of love. Two lovers who profoundly admire each other know a form of delight that is a continuing source of fuel to romantic love. When high self-esteem people fall in love, admiration is most likely to be at the core of their relationship."

6. Pairing by Dr. George R. Bach and Ronald M. Deutsch, 1970, America

For single women and men or those in a relationship from new boy/girl friends to long-timed marrieds, this the THE BOOK, that you must read IF YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO EARN A TRULY INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP--WHICH IS WHAT WE ALL MOST DESIRE!!! It pulls the Masks of Fear of Abandonment or Fear of Engulfment off our faces and exposes us to the Sunlight of Being Known for Who We Are. Quotes from the book: "This could be love Now, is at once a promise and a threat. The promise is that an intimate longing may about to be fulfilled. The threat is that it will not be. This anxiety of love is primarily a fear that the other person will not feel love...of being used, exploited, manipulated; of being swallowed up and controlled; of being kept at a distance or being drawn too close; of becoming dependent of being too much depended upon. The greatest fear is the fear of losing love. And the greater the affection grows, the greater grows that fear. A choice must be made the moment these feelings appear. The would-be lover must decide how to manage that fear. There are two ways. The first is the usual way - denying the fear, glossing over the realities [of incompatibility] that produce it. It is the smooth way at first, but in the end it brings mounting discomfort and is not likely to lead to intimate love. The second is the [mature] pairing way. It may appear unsettling, but inwardly it relieves the fears and tensions, and is the sound path to intimacy."

9. The Money Bubble by James Turk and John Rubino, 2013, America

The book begins with this quote:

“The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant.” – Robespierre. This is the book you must read along with #1 by Griffin. The book is not an historical expose of the "Ruling Elite--Banksters" as Griffin's book is. Rather, it is an up-to-date analysis of the worldwide "Money Bubble" caused by "Fiat Financing" (the irresponsible creation of currency/money from literally nothing) and why it WILL BURST and VERY SOON, effecting everyone in the world to varying degrees! This book will PREPARE YOU!

Then they state the main theme of the book:

“Because we view fiat (i.e., government created and controlled) currencies as the root cause of the financial world’s many problems, we see the failure of these currencies and their replacement with something better as both inevitable and imminent. Because gold was humanity’s money of choice for the 3,000 years prior to 1971 – during which time it worked very well – we think it will be central to the coming transition. Society will simply go back to tried-and-true money, on terms that are extremely favorable to those who own gold today.” They continue: “Our problem is with how the ability to create money out of thin air has corrupted what was once a society based on free individuals living self-directed lives without undue fear of governmental power. The right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is rapidly being eroded by endless interventions abroad and pervasive surveillance, regulation, and coercion at home – and the growing threat of government confiscation of private assets.” And they end their book on a Rainbow Hope: “Extremely hard, chaotic times are coming. But they will pass. And the period that follows will be amazing, as a wide range of breakthrough technologies coalesce to give our grandkids a rich, free, clean world. In the meantime, as the old saying goes, crisis equals opportunity.” 

10. Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver by Michael Maloney, 2008, America

This is the 3rd of the books on the World Economy you need to read after #1 and #9 above!

From a summary of this book:

"This is a great education book about real money. Mike reviews sound money principles that have lasted throughout human history. One thing is consistent and that is Gold and Silver are real money. In today’s world of fiat currencies, Gold and Silver are tools you can use to preserve and protect your wealth. Mike reviews the differences between currencies, real money and fiat money. Fiat currency is basically paper money not backed by anything. We will go into some detail on why this is dangerous and the average investor should at least understand the significance of debased money and bloated fiat currencies. With the 2008 economic meltdown along with Ireland, Greece and other bankrupt countries, we as small investors need to be educated so we can protect ourselves. Why is this important to me? This is important because the greatest wealth transfer is happening right now and that transfer is moving away from America and not toward us. This needs to be a priority if you want to protect yourself and your family. Several things are happening but 90% of the general public does not truly understand it. The Federal Reserve is a private institution that is not regulated and not audited. They control the financial system. To summarize, what does this mean? This book and others like it will help you take control of your own destiny. It is recommended you should hold 10% of your assets outside the financial system. When you put all your money in the bank and there is a run on the bank and it fails, you do too. Holding physical gold and silver as real money eliminates this risk."
