Over the years, the term self-help has been used in the publishing industry to refer to a wide variety of advice books, from diet and financial success to love relationships and the pursuit of peace and happiness.  But what, exactly, is self-help?  Does it really work?  In simple terms, self-help is about learning, or figuring […]

Teacher Terrorism in Our Schools

Posted on April 17, 2013 by Robert Ringer Comments (8)

I occasionally receive e-mails from readers who take issue with my stance against teacher terrorism.  However, even I am surprised by how few negative responses I get.  In fact, I have been overwhelmed by e-mails from readers who are in agreement with most, if not all, of what I have to say.  And usually it’s […]

The A Priori Argument Lives On

Posted on April 6, 2013 by Robert Ringer Comments (4)

I promised to keep reminding you of the dangers to your health, wealth, and happiness if you allow yourself to fall into the trap of accepting a priori arguments as a basis for your actions.  As I explained in my book Action! Nothing Happens Until Something Moves, the a priori argument is one of the […]

Why Was God AWOL at Newtown?

Posted on December 17, 2012 by Robert Ringer Comments (3)

So here we are again, trying to make sense out of senseless tragedy, tragedy made even more horrific by the fact that most of the victims were small children. And the news media, doing what they’re paid to do, have been analyzing the Newtown, Connecticut massacre from every conceivable point of view — mental illness, […]

College football rivalries such as Army-Navy, Texas-Oklahoma, and Ohio State-Michigan involve much more than just games.  They are bigger-than-life spectacles.  So it was a big deal for my teenage son when I took him to what is arguably the greatest rivalry in college football, the Ohio State-Michigan game. Usually when I take my son to […]

Coping With Our Fraudulent World

If you’re on the young side, you probably don’t remember the days when Hewlett-Packard was a quality company. I swore by their products … wouldn’t have thought of switching to a lesser brand. Then, along came the Age of Sloth — with equipment that is almost guaranteed to break down within a reasonably short period […]

Pleasant Memories of Vidal Sassoon

Posted on May 11, 2012 by Robert Ringer Comments (1)

Sadly, my longtime friend, Vidal Sassoon, died Wednesday at the age of eighty-four. Vidal, who grew up in poverty in London, changed the entire beauty-salon industry with his ultra-short and easy to manage hairstyles. He later became a business mogul when he developed a line of shampoos and hairstyling products, and also built a chain […]

Farewell to My Shining Light

Posted on January 30, 2012 by Robert Ringer No Comments

Most men speak of their mothers as angels, and in that regard I guess I’m not unique.  Some would probably argue that my mother was not unique either, that she was merely one of millions of moms from the greatest generation. Modern-day feminists would have been horrified by Mom’s lifestyle.  Her day-to-day world consisted primarily […]

Posted on December 28, 2011 by Robert Ringer No Comments

As I was enjoying the Christmas weekend, I was struck by the onslaught of tragedies that flashed across my television screen. A helicopter carrying a heart surgeon and procurement technician crashed in Florida, killing both men and the pilot of the aircraft. An Afghanistan war veteran was shot in the neck during a welcome-home party […]
