"I am awed by the creative thinking and discipline that went into the writing of this book. I applaud your achievement…I like the thematic framework-it offers an easy grasp way of thinking about self and others that brings together psychological, ethical, and religious principles. It provokes the reader into some self-examination (how am I being selfish, how is my thinking muddled about what I need, am I expressing my needs clearly, etc.)…I thought the discussion of conflict, feelings, and conflict tools and solutions was particularly strong in offering practical and useful suggestions."

"This Book offers what appears to be the missing link to help couples and therapists alike understand the core problem in relationships. The Polarity of Mind Reflex describes the relationship fight-or-flight response in ways that we all can identify. Dr. Materna explains the pattern of creating the same struggle in one relationship after another or making the same mistake in choosing a partner. Most importantly, Dr. Materna offers strategies for the quick fix we all have been searching to find. This book is bound to be a classic in the field of psychology, self-help, and relationship counseling. It is a must read…I highly recommend this book and will be using it regularly in my practice to help others…a great approach to treatment, wise, warm, and enjoyable writing style.”

Lollipops, Chocolate, Donuts, or Cake?
"Lollipops, Chocolate, Donuts or Cake? Eating is fun, but what you don't know is the trouble it can make," says Dr. Daniel Materna's son Ryan who, with his sister Joslyn, created the colored illustrations for this book. The book poetically tells the story in a whimsical fashion about the pleasures and perplexing problems eating can entail. In the end, the poem highlights a specific recipe to solve eating troubles that both children and adults can savor. The book is fun, entertaining, and surprisingly effective in highlighting solutions to even the most serious of eating disorders.
