Hey, Donnie, I can't thank you enough for helping me to
understand a perplexing factor in
my life through reading your book "Masculine Vulnerabilities," which I could
hardly put down this weekend. As a female entertainer in a long-term relationship, your book was the answer that I needed to make sense of my world.It pieced together a part of my life that I had always been puzzled about
and have, through the gift of astrology, now been able to put into a
brilliantly freeing perspective because of your frank honesty and good
heartedness. Thank you for being the empowering and generous Sagittarius
that you are and for revealing the deep sexual forces that are expressed
with music, the entertainment industry, fame and the road of life.
You've really helped me to understand a 30-year karmic relationship I've had
with a man who was the reason I learned astrology and to see that I've been
his "home base" kinda Jackie/Karen figure.
Bravo! Marianne noted ViolinistI found myself glued. Reading this story made me realize I have been running from intimacy my entire adult life. I was simply afraid to let someone in, though in my mind I thought I had. Clearly, I have to admit I did not understand what being vulnerable in a relationship entailed. I never really understood what men actually face and struggle with. I feel such loss because I now accept I may have discounted the greatest love of my life. Samantha Cimorelli, Yoga Instructor Very seldom as a publisher do I comment on my clients' books. We leave that job to editorial boards and reviewers. However, having such a brain trust to share this literary work with the world is gratifying knowing that its story is changing lives, and inspiring hope. I wish we could list every comment, that is impossible though I will conclude by saying, it is definitely worth reading, analyzing, and discovering the treasure listed page-after-page.

"After reading Dunn' s book, as a female entertainer in a long-term relationship for over 30 years, I never understood why I selectively chose to love the man in my life; my not understanding his complexity kept me fixated, until now." I wish I could change the wasted moments. "This man is a musical genius, a strong leader, and a really nice guy; he is not just a former band member of the O'Jays, he is my friend.
