A Man's Late Night Thoughts by J. Richman - Book Tour & Review

A MAN'S LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS

By J. Richman

Memoir/Narrative

A MAN’S LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS by J. Richman is a creative and
life-affirming collection of ponderings that expose the deep thoughts
and feelings of a man who has lived a life full of diverse experiences
and challenges. This uniquely constructed compilation of more than 300
reflections focuses on several areas of living, including intimate
relationships and acceptance of human frailty, as well as the author’s
internal conflicts.

A MAN’S LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS homes in on the complications
inherent in intimate relationships from the opening pages of the book:
“Problems accrue when we confuse how a woman looks with who she is.”
Richman brings the perspective of a mature man to the lessons on love
presented in the book, including, “Exploitation of another depreciates
both parties,” and “The reason we fall in love with flawed people is
that that’s the only kind of people there are.”

In addition to offering a brief study of intimate relationships, A MAN’S LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS
probes human frailty and offers readers guidance in accepting this
fact. “We must learn to be strong enough to be gentle,” brings into
focus the need to deliberately work at treating people well. The author
also encourages readers to show self-compassion when dealing with their
own baggage: “Sometimes it’s difficult to see beyond the wreckage of our
lives, but we must! Take heart! We are more than our mistakes.”

In A MAN’S LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS, Richman further challenges
readers to take the reins of their lives when he says, “Name those
things that you would do if you had no fear then do something about it.”
He offers words of caution regarding political rhetoric: “Beware of
politicians who whip up emotions to make us suspicious of others unlike
us.” And rounds the book out by sharing his internal conflicts: “The
world has bent me more than I have bent it”; “too often my logical mind
and my emotional mind are hostile enemies”; “every time I look in the
mirror, I expect to see a younger man.”

A MAN’S LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS began as a series of notes that
Richman wrote to himself. “I found that if I do not write out my true,
and often painful, thoughts and feelings, I do not deal with them.”
Richman wishes a book like this one had been available when he was a boy
because the knowledge enclosed could have assisted him in navigating
his teenage and young adult years. He hopes A MAN’S LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS
will assure men that they are not alone in their quiet musings. For
women, Richman believes the book will provide a window into men’s
unexpressed emotions.

“introspection requires us to be an interested spectator of our own life.” …can this me be a better me…what happens when unimportant me wants to be important me...can anyone understand us and love us anyway…why must we clutch desperately to or fantasy…what happens when we need for from life than is available...do you frolic  and run with the deer in deer hunting season?...not to worry it’s all in the grand plan that you can change anytime.”




My Review
A Man's Late Night Thoughts is a compilation of the random thoughts the author has penned over the years. They're meant for both men and women, and each thought comes with a little section for readers to write their own comments and/or thoughts. 
I found some of the thoughts to be a bit sad and depressing. Some made me stop and go, "Huh. Never thought about things like that. So true." And others were a little strange and confusing, but still interesting to think about. 
I liked that there was a little section under each thought for my own comments. I also liked how thought-provoking the book was. A lot of the thoughts do make you think. They make you wonder. And they make you take a step back and look at life through a new lens. 
4 stars from me!

president of Nova, a workshop that provided work and life skills
training for clients with disabilities; cofounding A Way Across, a

problems; and fundraising for several more public service groups.
