  • Linden's Last Life: The Point of No Return Is Just the Beginning (October 15, 2009)
    Just as down-and-out Linden Kozlowski is about to end it all, he’s intercepted by a monk who convinces him that if he runs away from life, he’ll have to return, and his problems will just get worse. To escape the pain of the world forever, Linden stays alive long enough to make a mystical deal to never be reborn again.

    When a strange and unexpected turn of events occurs, Linden has second thoughts about his decision…but can he reverse it? His extraordinary adventure literally takes him to the ends of the earth, where he gathers allies, faces overwhelming forces, and realizes that he must decide if life is worth living and if love is more powerful than destiny.

  • My Father's Voice: A Tale of Undying Love (2000)
    Angelo Mann has it all- A prestigious career, devoted family, plenty of money...everything he could possibly desire. Except for one crucial missing piece: He is empty and aching inside. Angelo doesn't know who he is. Even more troubling is Angelo's fear that he will hurt his son in the same way his father hurt him.

    Suddenly life sends Angelo an experience that forces him to rethink everything about the way he is living, and he sets out on an incredible adventure which leads him to a discovery that could change the world-if he can find the courage to deliver it.

  • Don't Get Lucky — Get Smart: Why Your Love Life Sucks-and What You Can Do About It (2007)
    With the same humor, real-world examples, and charming directness as Why Your Life Sucks, Don't Get Lucky — Get Smart spells out why many of us have been unlucky in love — and also offers practical ways to increase our relationship intelligence.

    From a self-help guru who admittedly owned a lot of unreal estate in dating hell for years, Don't Get Lucky distils the common reasons we all have bad — or just not great — relationships, showing us how to recognize our own patterns, and ultimately how to change for the better.

    An original voice with highly practical information: Cohen debunks the common myths we bring to dating and offers new insight into the realities of relationships. For example, chances are your love life sucks if you often…

    • Mistake "hope at first sight" for "love at first sight"

    • Date out of desperation.

    People who feel desperate do desperate things — and create desperate results

    • Seek only The Right Person — which may be a way of avoiding relationship

    • Get stuck on The Wrong Person — again and again and again

  • A Daily Dose of Sanity: A Five Minute Soul Recharge for Every Day of the Year (1996, Rerelease February 15, 2010)
    In times of challenge as well as ease, we all need a helping hand to stay on top of our game, make successful decisions, and find peace of mind in the midst of people and events that might distract us. This collection of inspiring, poignant, and humorous real-life stories, coupled with uplifting insights, will show you how to keep your head on straight and your heart open no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

    In his uniquely warm and down-to-earth way, Alan Cohen teaches you through meaningful examples that you’re in the perfect position to use your talents and assets to turn your life into all you want it to be. Each day-of-the-year entry contains a theme, an elegant quotation, a true-to-life anecdote, a short lesson, a question for self-study, and an empowering affirmation. In the tradition of Alan’s highly popular award-winning book A Deep Breath of Life, you can use this book on a daily basis for a potent uplift and gain valuable tools to feel better, create career and financial success, deepen the quality of all of your relationships, and find personal fulfillment that lifts you far beyond what you’ve known in the past.

  • Relax Into Wealth: How To Get More By Doing Less (2006)
    An inspiring guide to the secret formula for wealth-building by one of today-s top motivational writers and speakers. In Relax into Wealth, master storyteller Alan Cohen demonstrates the intrinsic link between passion, authenticity, and prosperity. He shows that nothing pays like . . . being yourself. This popular national speaker and bestselling writer delivers his prosperity principles in fifty-two true stories of successful people he has encountered, including celebrities, Midas-touch entrepreneurs, shuttle-bus drivers, wide-eyed children, and even a stripper. Then, in his unique way, Cohen highlights the lesson within each parable and expands upon it, enabling readers to apply the principle to their own lives. Cohen uses the story, the most cogent teaching device in history, to give readers an entertaining and accessible model.

    Relax into Wealth makes use of personal (and sometimes quite intimate) tales to capture the reader-s attention and impart the wisdom found in the experience. Each of its fifty-two anecdotes ends with a personal affirmation to help readers remember the lesson and carry it into real life. Most popular books on success in business or personal finance are formula-driven, focusing on techniques to make more money, climb the corporate ladder, or outpower competition.

    Relax into Wealth is character-driven, shining the spotlight on the kind of heart, faith, and vision required to overcome fear, peer pressure, limiting beliefs, or a history of failure. The book is about real people-in whom readers can recognize themselves-featuring moneymakers who have been true to their passion and successful in their chosen domain. Every reader will see his own financial hopes-and how to achieve them-in the lives of the various characters.

  • Why Your Life Sucks: And What You Can Do About It (2005)
    The in-your-face, no-hype guide to getting happy…

    Your life sucks if…

    • You routinely make someone or something more important than you

    • The life you are living on the outside doesn’t match who you are on the inside

    • You say yes when you mean no

    • You try to fix other people

    • You’ve forgotten to enjoy the ride

    When your life sucks, it’s a wake-up call. Now self-help guru and bestselling author Alan Cohen invites you to answer that call, change your course, and enjoy the life you were meant to live. In ten compelling chapters, Cohen shows you how to stop wasting your energy on people and things that deaden you–and use it for things you love.

    With great humor, great examples, and exhilarating directness, Why Your Life Sucks doesn’t just spell out the ways in which you undermine your power, purpose, and creativity–it shows you how to reverse the damage. Here is an encouraging but loud-and-clear reminder that in every moment we generate our own experience by the choices we make, and that today is the best day to begin your new life.

  • Mr. Everit's Secret: What I Learned from the World’s Richest Man (2004)
    "Sure you learn from pain, but you also learn from ease and fun. It’s like learning to ride a bicycle--you learn from falling off, but you learn the most when you stay balanced and enjoy the ride. Pain is highly overrated as a teaching device. If you pay attention to internal signals and external feedback, life won’t need a 2x4 to get your attention." (Bert Everit)

    In the tradition of Who Moved My Cheese?, Mr. Everit’s Secret is a modern-day parable that examines many of our preconceived notions about money and our ability to create the good life. You can have everything you want in life--success, relationships, career, money, happiness--and it doesn’t have to be a struggle. Most of us were taught that to reach our goals, we have to work hard and fight every step of the way. But it’s simply not true.

    Syndicated columnist and esteemed corporate keynote speaker Alan H. Cohen shows us that our goals are already within reach but we are often too comfortable in our lives--even if our lives stink--to step forward into change.

    Mr. Everit’s Secret imparts important lessons about changing from a fear mentality to a wealth mentality, overcoming small and self-defeating modes of thinking, and taking care of people while letting life take care of you.

Wisdom of the Heart contains many inspiring aphorisms and condensed lessons that make this a perfect daily companion of gift to a loved one.

  • Handle with Prayer: Harnessing the Power to Make Your Dreams Come Through (1999)

    "The journey through a year of life is a wondrous and sacred adventure. Each day brings fresh opportunities to surpass limits and step into our highest identity. Every new moment invites us to release fear and choose love as our guide.

    The path can be difficult if we attempt to walk it alone; even while we are whole, we must reach our for support and be open to receive help to weather the challenging times. Indeed, we are not asked to do it all by ourselves; the Great Spirit would not leave us feeling abandoned, and we are sent many friends and supporters to uphold us as we master our lessons.

    Consider this book a hand to hold as you scale the mountain of your destiny. In just a few minutes each day, you can step back from your worldly activity and draw in a deep breath of spiritual renewal. You might like to savor each message in the morning to start your day on a positive keynote, and/or review your day in the light of the principles
    ."  -- Alan Cohen

  • Are You as Happy as Your Dog?: Sure-Fire Ways to Wake Up with a Smile as Big as Your Pooch's (1996)
    Have you ever wondered if your dog knows more about joyful living than you?

    I met a man who told me, "For years I was so miserable that I prayed to God daily to please let me wake up as happy as my dog!" I went home and observed my dog Munchie, who is happy all the time. Munchie is the most joyful creature I have ever seen. He lives in a state of continuous delight and discovery.

    It became clear to me that Munchie knew something I didn't know (or at least didn't remember). So I decided to study Munchie's attitude to see what he knew that I was missing.

    Professor Munchie's lessons include:

    • love to be a lover

    • ask for what you want

    • keep your eye on the ball

    • get off the leash sometimes

He shows how we can let go of the past, overcome fear, and discover the power of love in our lives. Once we are engaged in the work of truly being ourselves, each challenge becomes an opportunity for growth, each choice a lesson in commitment, each relationship a renewal of God's work.

    Dare To Be Yourself will dramatically enlighten, empower, and enliven you as you awaken to life and love and the unique gifts that are yours to give the world.
