Over the past 20 years, I have counselled dozens of people who have had pornography issues, in the context of my faith community. My books are based on material I have produced to help them. I enjoy researching topics and explaining them clearly to others.
Look out for further books in the near future. My next book is designed to help those who have relapsed in the course of their recovery from porn.
Don't judge yourself too harshly for your porn habit; the dice were loaded against you from the start. Getting into porn was a mistake, yes, but an understandable one. And there is hope. Thousands have escaped from porn already; this book is full of insights to help you to do the same. A practical program you can start implementing today. Religion and spirituality optional.
How To Be Unstoppable Every Day Of Your Life
on Aug. 26, 2015
After a note saying you can only quote very small excerpts in books and scholarly journals (he wishes!) followed by several pages of ads, the book eventually gets to the point.
It's not bad I suppose, although much of it is trite. ("When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!")
Some of it, though, is bad advice. For example: "Visualize the person that you want to be. On the flatscreen of your mind, create your ideal self. This person is happy, healthy, glowing with confidence and inner peace. Now imagine that this ideal self is being interviewed on a really great day." The latest research is that visualizing your ideal self is DEMOTIVATING. What you should do is visualize yourself taking actions that will lead to your success.

Perhaps most importantly, the book doesn't live up to its overblown title. Even if you do everything it says, you won't be unstoppable every day of your life. Sorry!
My Situation Has Changed

Although I'm pleased to read that the author is doing better, I was a little disturbed at this book. Indeed, it's hardly a book at all, more like a journal entry. I felt like I had intruded into someone's personal space by reading it (which took about one minute.)
E is for Effort

This is a fairly interesting book that makes a number of valid points. If you have not read much in the way of self-help literature, this could make a good introduction. Might benefit from a little further editing as there are a number of typos or misspellings, words incorrectly capitalized, and so forth. Additionally, the information could perhaps be conveyed with greater brevity. Nonetheless, I appreciate the author's generosity in making the book available free of charge and wish him well.
