Anatomy of a Secret Life: Are the People In Your Life Hiding Something You Should Know?

We think we know those who are close to us, and we want to believe that what we see is what we get. But we can never know for certain, because what really goes on inside another’s head and heart is essentially a secret. How do you know if that secret is something that will hurt you?

Your husband turns to face you in bed. Is he thinking about you or your closest friend?Your boss shows up in another new outfit. Did she get a raise or is she a compulsive shopper who is stealing money from the company?Your teenaged daughter is upstairs in her bedroom. Is she doing her homework or chatting online with a man twice her age?

Anatomy of A Secret Life will take you inside the minds of secret-keepers and show you how secrets start, how they’re kept, and how they exact their devastating emotional and social toll. Using contemporary case studies and historical examples, Dr. Gail Saltz shows you how to spot—through subtle behaviors and clues—and safely stop the potentially dangerous secrets that someone, even you, might be concealing from the world.

Becoming Real: Defeating the Stories We Tell Ourselves That Hold Us Back

The Today show’s psychiatrist shows readers how to stop living half a life, break old patterns, and take control

You have a story. The one you’re not even aware you’re telling yourself, the one you made up as a child to explain the behavior of your parents, the lack of control over your circumstances, the one that’s keeping you from becoming more confident, the story that’s keeping you from the five qualities of becoming real:

  • Authenticity
  • Personal Freedom
  • True Strength
  • Self-Acceptance
  • Intimacy

Through revealing and intensive questionnaires, Dr. Gail Saltz helps you to finally identify self-defeating behaviors, improve your self-esteem, and escape your personal traps—the same difficult relationships, the same work problems, the same issues with family and friends—so that you can live with more freedom and control once and for all. Identify the symptoms, and you’ll be able to discover—and rewrite—the story of your life.

The Ripple Effect: How Better Sex Can Lead to a Better Life

Finally. The thinking woman’s guide to great sex.

Bookshelves sag under the weight of guides and manuals that tell readers that their sex lives will be transformed if only they are limber enough to hoist leg A into position B. Many women have found that transformation underwhelming to say the least.

Sex is physical. But as best-selling author and television commentator Dr. Gail Saltz writes, “Seeing sex in only physical terms is an old-fashioned and ineffective approach that is based on a fundamental misunderstanding, like treating tuberculosis with breathing exercises, which we did before we knew that tuberculosis was caused by a bacterium. We know better now.”

With a dose of good humor, Dr. Saltz explains how women can approach their sexuality from the inside out and create a ripple effect that will change how they think, feel, and behave in every aspect of life.
