The multitude of pressures that lead relationships between couples from their starting point of love, passion, respect, and hope to apathy, complacency, repetitiveness, and discouragement are often allowed to take hold, rendering the outlook for many relationships bleak. Women spend millions to find solutions in books and therapy. The hunt is for the approach that will solve their marital problems -- or at least “fix” their spouse.
Written by a man and for men, It’s All About Her speaks to everyday problem-solving and relationship-improving in practical, playful, and more than occasionally profound ways. Is it the last word on interpersonal relationships? No. A new interpretation of the planetary origins of the male and female psyches? Absolutely not. A simple, easy-to-read set of suggestions that any guy can try to enhance the fun, respect, excitement, and love in his marriage? Yes!
Delivered in a straightforward, witty, and thought-provoking style, It’s Al About Her is designed to spur actions and insights that work in the real world. It provide dozens of how-to’s for everything from giving gifts and sharing a bathroom to entertaining, teaming on the career front, and even attending the kids’ sporting events. Some are about fun, some romance, some respect but all enhance the relationship – and recall the basics that often fall by the wayside in long-term, side-by-side living.
Badly injured from his car accident and stranded on the side of a hill, hi-tech executive Tom Daniels is faced with even greater challenges than those presented by his dark and damp circumstances: himself. But through the guidance of three mysterious women, Tom is given the opportunity to experience his past, present, and future, enabling him to make some very important decisions that will impact not only his life, but also those of his wife and family.
In this 21st century parable, Jim Hamilton, author of It’s All About Her, allows readers to join Tom Daniels’ journey from his childhood’s idyllic start through his challenges in facing the death of a close family member, the premature end to a promising athletic career, and addiction and recovery. This reliving of his past sets the stage for Tom profoundly and sometimes painfully evaluating his current life and his possibilities for the future, ultimately allowing Tom to answer the question, “Where’s Love?”
Respectfully adapting the time travel form of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” with In Pursuit of Love Hamilton has created a vehicle for us to examine our own lives and priorities in an insightful, entertaining, and often humorous way. The semi-autobiographical story of the main character’s past also provides a universal message of hope for all willing to brave self-awareness and act on their desire to overcome life’s challenges.
