The hard questions : 100 questions to ask before you say, "I do" by Susan Piver( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Susan Piver's husband, Duncan, proposed, her first impulse was to break up with him. "How does one enter into marriage knowing that almost half of all couples these days get divorced?" she thought in a panic. "Suppose he wants to live somewhere I hate? What if I wish we had ten times more money than he wishes for, or he wants to spend more time with his family than I do?" One by one, she and Duncan answered these questions and many more, alternately delighted, appalled, infuriated, and mystified by the other's responses. In exploring each area of uncertainty, Piver learned something about her husband-to-be, herself, and their relationship. Focusing on key areas of married life, such as home, money, work, sex, community and friends, family, and spirituality, her list of questions became the basis for this book. The Hard Questions should be required reading for engaged couples, newlyweds, and those in long-term relationships

Witnessing the declining health of a parent, and the inevitable thoughts of mortality that accompany the process, can take a heavy emotional and physical toll--particularly if parents and children find it awkward to communicate their fears and needs to one another. To remove the boundaries and enhance these necessary dialogues, Susan Piver applies her thought-provoking question-and-answer format to The Hard Questions for Adult Children and Their Aging Parents. With 100 questions on topics ranging from the practical to the emotional, Susan makes it possible to have candid, comforting conversations that will have lasting benefits. The book is divided into categories, including questions for siblings only and for parents only, followed by specific questions regarding finances, health care, legalities and paperwork, housing, relationships, personal history, and spirituality--all designed to facilitate this delicate process and give all members of the family time for contemplation
Start here now : an open-hearted guide to the path and practice of meditation by Susan Piver( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A concise, jargon-free guide to learning what Buddhist meditation is--and isn't--with advice on how to start a meditation practice. If you want to meditate but have no idea where to begin, this book by best-selling author and Buddhist teacher Susan Piver will help you: it contains everything you need to know to start a meditation practice and, even more important, to continue one. It defines what meditation is (and what it is not); dispels the three most common misconceptions about it; advises ways around obstacles; addresses the most frequently asked questions; and shows how meditation can have positive impact on relationships, creativity, and difficult emotions. However, Piver presents meditation as something more than the self-help technique du jour--it is a path to love, joy, and courage. This book contains two self-paced programs to help you start here--now!
