"This book tells the story of Isabel's life from early childhood to young adulthood, growing up in Spain in the 1970s and 1980s. It is told through the voice of Isabel as she struggles to make sense of her bewildering world of family rules and social norms, where children are expected to do as they were told without discussion. Isabel is the fifth child of seven, watching both her older and younger siblings' interests and behaviour through the lens of a little girl who finds it difficult to play and engage with others.

Isabel is a serious little girl who watches everything, seeing minute details in every aspect of her life. Repeatedly she describes the anxiety she feels of "not knowing" what is going to happen and when she might be expected to do something outside of her comfort zone. The stories of her traumatic start at school, the tonsillectomy, her father's terrifying behaviour towards his children, and her adolescent emotions and first experience of sex are told with vivid attention to detail.

Although autism is never explicitly mentioned in this book, Isabel's struggles to make sense of the world, her ability to focus with such intensity and the overwhelming anxiety that she experiences are all features of girls and women with Asperger's syndrome, or autism. Indeed, the behaviour of Isabel's father, Roberto, suggests that he too is on the spectrum, with behaviours that make him frightening and unpredictable to a child.

This book has been sensitively written and the story is engaging and unpredictable. It also gives insight into how a girl who might be on the autistic spectrum struggles to cope with the demands of social and family life. I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about family sagas or who is interested in childhood and autism."

A contemporary, wide-ranging exploration of one of the most provocative topics currently under psychoanalytic investigation: the relationship of dissociation to varieties of knowing and unknowing. The twenty-eight essays collected here invite readers to reflect upon the ways the mind is structured around and through knowing, not-knowing, and sort-of-knowing or uncertainty. The authors explore the ramifications of being up against the limits of what they can know as through their clinical practice, and theoretical considerations, they simultaneously attempt to open up psychic and physical experience. How, they ask, do we tolerate ambiguity and blind spots as we try to know? And how do we make all of this useful to our patients and ourselves? The authors approach these and similar epistemological questions through an impressively wide variety of clinical dilemmas (e.g., the impact of new technologies upon the analytic dyad) and theoretical specialties (e.g., neurobiology).

Wise advice imparted from a street savvy black woman, I May Not Know What Im Talking About But Im Gonna Say It Anyway delves into man/woman issues where from time to time a suggestion or two is thrown in along the way. According to African-American Lifestyle Magazine (, While Tara concedes that she isn't an expert in many areas, she can comfortably say that God doesn't bless mess. Often sassy and sometimes crass, she invites readers to recognize themselves or their behaviors. No one escapes her scathing observations as she generously heaps blame and shame on enabling parents, disrespectful children, nonexistent morals and marriages which have no ground rules. Blue Ink Review (www.blueinkreview) comments that The author relays fundamental Christian principles, using biblical passages relating to marriage and relationships, but theyre analyzed in a real-world manner, using colorful and somewhat salty language. Its like hearing your favorite aunt tell it like it is. "Dont get too comfortable with the idea that whats between your legs is always going (to) save the day," Ratney writesRatney advises women that sexual, emotional and financial security are "at the bottom of our motives" in choosing a mate and that there must be consequences for bad behavior in life. Overall, the book is a must read for anyone seeking to improve decisions and relationships. Also available on (kindle preferable for most updated version), with an introduction of the book itself being available on my website:, along with other youtube links discussing various other topics from the text Through God everything is possible

This book takes the view that Christian truth is the basis for all answers to social issues and that there are not two opposing but equal answers within Christian truth that are equally valid and equally acceptable to God. Any so called truth or "right" that circumvents or undercuts the required sacrifices, disciplines and self denial demanded by God in any given social or moral issue ceases to be truth, ceases to be right the moment it becomes a force unto itself, outside of or independent of the Scripturally required obedience. Human history has shown over the millennia that when the letter and spirit of God's laws are not obeyed, the truth is abused, nations become confused and people are used. Many of our political and social issues are rooted in our misplaced belief that tolerance, inclusion, equal respect for unequal truth and live and let live is the way to greater peace and prosperity. They are all wrong. Each individual, government and nation is judged by their response to Christ. The Christian nation or one which ascribes to being one, is tasked to set the Christian standard as every nation's point of reference. It is the Christian's duty to show that the valid rule of God's law, the letter of God's law and the spirit of God's law are superior to any other alternative standard. The biggest obstacle to Christianity today is the undisciplined, misinformed and unfaithful lifestyles of professing Christians. The Church has become so indoctrinated in its aversion to any form of discrimination that it has placed a higher priority on keeping the peace by compromising than by keeping the truth by discriminating. By accepting a false peace and rejecting a hard truth that resists compromise, it begets neither peace nor truth.

The book contains more than 6,100 questions. Its value is not in the answers, but rather in the way the questions are formulated and in the information they contain. Because the questions are arranged chronologically, the book can be used as a study guide. Although there are questions that require to memorize certain details, most of them contain enough clues within themselves which give the reader the opportunity to find the correct answer by using comparisons and logic. Since the book was conceived with the purpose of using it in Bible contests, most of the questions require one-word answers. The material contained in this book is useful in bringing out things that many readers omit when they read the Bible. It is also useful for getting ideas for sermon subjects, for Bible contests, for obtaining information, etc. There are a variety of types of questions: 1. Simple and straightforward questions 2. Multiple choice questions 3. True and false questions 4. Tricky questions 5. Questions that require logic 6. Questions that require general knowledge 7. Questions that require to know Bible details 8. Interesting questions 9. Questions focused on unique things in the Bible 10. Questions that deal with controversial issues 11. Questions that require a list of names 12. Questions that require special knowledge 13. Doctrinal questions 14. Questions that combine the Old Testament and New Testament 15. Bible geography questions 16. Questions that require memorizing verses Take a look at a few sample questions and answers: Tricky question: "David, Solomon, Jeroboam, Ahab, Jehoiakim, and Omri were just a few of the Kings of Israel. Some of them had problems with the Egyptians, and Israel and Egypt were often at war. So, king of Egypt, came and attacked Israel. If you paid attention, the name of the Egyptian king has already been mentioned. Give his name." Question that requires logic: "Alexander the Great, around 250 BC, gathered in Alexandria, Egypt, 70 Hebrew scholars to translate the Scriptures from Hebrew into Greek. This translation is known under the name of Septuagint (LXX). What part of the Bible did they translate? Was it the Old Testament, the New Testament, or the whole Bible?" Question focused on unique things in the Bible: "This gospel contains nothing about the life of Jesus before he was about 30 years old." Answers: Tricky question: So Questions that require logic: OT (One should know that there was no NT in 250 BC, and the NT was already written in Greek) Questions focused on unique things in the Bible: Mark

This book explores the practice and transmission of Lacanian and Freudian theory. It discusses the pure versus applied analysis of Lacanian and Freudian theory in practice; and the hierarchical versus circular transmissions within psychoanalytic organizations. Underpinned by extensive practical knowledge of the clinic, this work examines the differences between Freud and Lacan in their understanding of the subject and the unconscious and pushes them in new directions. The book also offers an analysis and commentary of several key Lacanian texts including an accessible study of the notoriously challenging text L'etourdit. Offering both divergent and reinforcing takes on Lacan, the author explores the traits that separate out the psychoanalyst from other twentieth-century thinkers and theorists. This book offers a clear clinical picture of where Lacanian psychoanalysis is today, both in the US and internationally.
