on Your Journey through Life


About These Books


As I was writing these books over the past few years, my thought was “What information or concepts can I pass on to folks that might help make their lives easier and help them to enjoy life a little more?”  And the answer was always to just write about the things that have helped me. So that’s what I’ve done.  I’ve also put them into a quick, easy-reading format and generally included enough silliness to take the edge off some of the some of the concepts that may have a tendency to overheat the old brain.  (Don’t you just hate it when that happens?)


Looking over the book titles and the related information, you can see that I’ve covered the three main areas that work together to determine who and what we are – our genetics and personal experiences, our spiritual influences, and our animal instincts.  And yes, our animal instincts frequently have a greater impact on our thoughts and actions than most people would care to admit.  (See “Just Between Us Critters”.)  Like I’ve said, all the books are easy to read and are packed with information that can – if put to use – help make anyone’s life a little easier and more enjoyable.

Is This As Good As It Gets?

ISBN 1-4116-4415-8    

Sometimes  life deals us a mediocre hand, then changes the rules of the game without warning.  It presents  uncomfortable situations, yet offers little in the way of solutions.  Life tears at our hearts and our minds, beating us down physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Is this really the life we were intended to experience?  Or is our life just an uncomfortable result of the things we have learned from our experiences and people that have been an influential part of our lives so far?

In slightly over 50 pages, Gene reveals some of the basic rules of Life that, if put to use, will make a dramatic difference in how you view life - and in your approach to making those improvements you’d like to make.  Discover now, your path to a fulfilling, truly enjoyable lifestyle!

Just Between us Critters

ISBN 1-4116-6176-1

We’re strange creatures…and we continue to prove it by periodically doing strange things.  Things that are dictated not so much by logical thought processes as by a “gut reaction” to a given situation.

How can we as intelligent, civilized human beings do so many things that wind up costing us so much money, creating so much conflict and getting us into so much trouble? 

Are we just warped?  Unbalanced?  Weird? Misguided? Under a spell?  Sinful?

Or – are our actions just being heavily influenced by some basic animal instinct?  By our mental design and programming that help assure our survival as individuals and as a species?

Discover the possible causes of many of our personal and collective conflicts.  Learn how our instincts can impact our daily lives and frequently even totally control the things we do.

Up Close and Personal

ISBN 1-4116-5179-0

We’re making this much too difficult.  Somewhere along the way, we got the strange idea that it is really difficult to talk with God.  How did that happen?

How did something so easy, so normal, so natural, get so screwed up?

We poor, misguided humans have become so entrenched, so enamored with our self-imposed rules and traditions that we have damn near lost our ability to communicate with the single entity that is responsible for our very existence. 

Does that make a lick of sense to anyone?

Wouldn’t it be really nice to be able to just relax and BS with God – no matter who we are or what we’ve done?  Wouldn’t it be great to be able to really talk with him and his helpers – and know that they’ll be doing things that can actually help us and make our lives easier?

Learn about some of the techniques you can use to do exactly that.  Find out how cool God really is!

A Short Spiritual Journey

ISBN 1-4116-8567-9

Truth – our personal conviction that the information we’ve received over the years is fact and that we can rely on it to provide the foundation for our beliefs and actions.  Emphasis on the word “personal”.  Because the information each one of us has received is different – and because we have all had different experiences to help formulate and solidify our beliefs – our “truths” will naturally be different.  Sure, sometimes there are similarities but there are times when vast differences will exist.  This is nowhere more pronounced than in the area of religion.

I wrote “A Short Spiritual Journey” as a series of short articles, not as a “put down” of  any religion, but rather to encourage each one of us to think about and question (in a positive way) the validity of our personal beliefs – our “truths” – and to offer a couple of “possibilities” that you may not have previously considered.  It’s quick, easy reading (I try not to get too serious about this stuff) and who knows, it may just open a door that will lead to a better understanding of yourself and the world around you.  I think that’s a worthwhile goal, don’t you?

Just Go For It!

ISBN 1-4116-7577-0

There are far too many of us who are going through life afraid, sad, depressed, worried or feeling guilty about something we’ve said or done.  There are too many of us who are dealing with daily conflicts or living in uncomfortable situations – both physically and emotionally.  There are too many of us who are simply putting up with the ordeals of every-day life and are maybe wondering if things will ever change – if this is really “as good as it gets”.

If you’re looking for more out of life, then it’s time to get to work.  Here’s a selection of articles from Gene Simmons at to help you on your journey.  Just Go For It!
