Forty-one scenarios and solutions for the irresponsibility of many grown men. What do you do when the towel is never picked up off the bathroom floor? How do you go about making men understand the difference between helping out with the housework and doing it? Have you ever walked through a supermarket with a thirty-five year old child who wants only the most expensive things on the shelves? And what about violence? The author has written this book which is serious but has a light and humourous touch.

Publisher's Weekly Review

After learning they were infected with HIV, lovers and AIDS activists Krandall Kraus (The President's Son, etc.) and Paul Borja decided to live out their remaining time with a renewed sense of purpose and focus. In their inspirational book, It's Never About What It's About: What We Learned About Living While Waiting to Die, they share their new life philosophy and their insights into our deepest emotions (for example, frustration and anger often mask deep-seated fear). For the reader intrigued by the relationship between the metaphysical and everyday experience, Kraus and Borja provide a provocative journey. (Alyson, $12.95 paper 208p ISBN 1-55583-571-6; Aug.) Chris Benguhe, who became a writer to help make the world a better place, celebrates "the most important things in life... people and the support and love we give each other" in Triumphs of the Heart: Miraculous True Stories of the Power of Love, with an introduction by George W. Bush. Though presented with forced drama, many of these 25 tales of real people's heroism, compassion and generosity are hopeful and inspiring. Agents, Becker & Mayer.
