During a fifty-year ministry this is one of my very few "absolute endorsements" because Dr. Joseph Smith has put together a manuscript of such thoughtful and practical concern. Most of the books on the counters of our local bookstores are not of the same caliber that he offers. Reading this manuscript was, for me, an adventure of discovery. I find his book not only fulfilling but exciting. The organization quickly brings the reader to an appreciation that "love defined" can really have an impact on not only the way we understand and then react with others, but how we may do this responsibly. This is the secret genius of this book!

    A Magnificent Work to Define Love & Relationships

    Dr. Joseph A. Smith, PH. D., was my college professor when I was earning my Master's Degree at Shippensburg University. From the first time I met him, I, along with others, were challenged to chew on the meaning of lasting love. Often, we were given week-end assignments to expand our own relationships with our spouse. Other lessons we discovered were that there were times in our lives that people had to let go of old friends who had passed to the other side. Memories would still be held dear, yet the love with those loved ones within our inner circle grew deeper as we developed our own interests with other friends. Fulfilling decisions became life changing ones, and we, too, left the class as enlightened human beings who would make further impact on the people with whom we came in contact. In this book, Dr. Joseph A. Smith states that no other author except for M. Scott Peck and himself have made geniune attempts to functionally define love up to this point in history. Personally, I thought that LOVE by Leo Buscaglia was excellent however, Leo was single and simply, without the experience of a wife and grandchildren, yet I enjoyed him. On the other hand, readers will find Dr. Joseph A. Smith's Love's Mystery Solved even more thought provoking. Having a wife, children, and grandchildren make him even more qualified as a love authority. With a clinical psychology background, he worked with students in the classroom who found their lives changed for the better after they met him. Likewise, readers will discover a way to solve the love mystery and build upon their dream relations. This masterpiece is meant to be chewed, digested, applied, and practiced in order that you, too, may discover a peaceful, existence that will be more heavenly. If you are looking for an eternal and meaningful love in your life, you won't want to miss this one. A book is as good as its reader who wishes to apply the contents and build a lasting relationship. Be ready to make a difference and be more lovingly magnificent. Find out the secrets to make a person fall in love with you and stay that way.
