In the seventh grade, Todd Rose was suspended-not for the first time-for throwing six stink bombs at the blackboard, where his art teacher stood with his back to the class. At eighteen, he was a high school dropout, stocking shelves at a department store for $4.25 an hour. Today, Rose is a faculty member at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Square Peg illuminates the struggles of millions of bright young children--and their frustrated parents and teachers--who are stuck in a one-size-fits-all school system that fails to approach the student as an individual. Rose shares his own incredible journey from troubled childhood to Harvard, seamlessly integrating cutting-edge research in neuroscience and psychology along with advances in the field of education, to ultimately provide a roadmap for parents and teachers of kids who are the casualties of America's antiquated school system. With a distinguished blend of humor, humility, and practical advice for nurturing children who are a poor fit in conventional schools, Square Peg is a game-changing manifesto that provides groundbreaking insight into how we can get the most out of all the students in our classrooms, and why today's dropouts could be tomorrow's innovators.

Life, in some ways, has been more complicated for those of us who are baby boomers ... especially if we’re “different” and grew up on that side of the Stonewall. Come out? Why, most of us couldn’t even join in. Rather, we tried to deny ourselves, hoping the burdensome secret would soon depart. It never did. So, we turned to prescription drugs, self-inflicted voodoo, and pejorative prayer. Mostly, though, we married—expecting that wives, wedding rings, and children would add legitimacy to our lives and help keep the demons at bay. None of that worked. And, sadly, others were also hurt by the deception. Though our options may be greater now, it’s still challenging being one more offbeat member in a much-maligned cast. Yet with each new voice that joins the chorus, we move another step closer toward embracing the inalienable and reclaiming souls lost. Listen: I can’t carry a tune but, please, let me sing! Great first review from The Augusta Free Press: AugustaFreePress And here ́s what the Staunton News-Leader said: StauntonNews-Leader When Sexual Orientation and Identity Conflict... Men May Marry, Yet Carry-On Clandestinely with Other Men Many middle-aged men are intimately involved with other men. Married or not, most of them tragically choose anonymity over acknowledging their true selves to others and, often, even themselves. Why are these men so secretive and afraid of revealing their sexual orientation? Because they grew up at a time when culture and society exorcised homosexuality, treating homosexual men and lesbians as lepers: sick, reprobate, reprehensible pariahs. So their sexual behavior, orientation, and identity conflict and increasingly collide. That’s the thesis of Bruce H. Joffe, a college professor whose new tell-tale book is a memoir about myriad masked men supposedly “straight” but actually same-sex oriented. Square Peg in a Round Hole follows the author’s attempts to delude himself and loved ones, tracing his experiences rejecting, confronting, and ultimately embracing the man he now believes God meant him to be all along. For Joffe and many men like him, the challenge required reconciling religious beliefs with his innate predisposition. An enigma within an enigma, Joffe is a Gay Jewish-Christian whose academic focus has been on Sexual Minority Studies for the past ten years. The connection enabled him to meet many men from the baby boom generation still struggling with their sexuality—online, in support groups, at churches, and through other social networks. Married with children or still single, politicians, celebrities, sports figures, and even evangelical leaders are now coming out and confessing ... or being forced to do so. Dropping a political bombshell, former New Jersey Governor James McGreevey announced his resignation after revealing that he is gay and that he’d had an adulterous affair with another man. Spokane Mayor Jim West, Florida Congressman Mark Foley, and Idaho Senator Larry Craig similarly symbolized political anathema and personal grief when their suppressed sexuality became public fodder for the media frenzy. The Rev. Paul Barnes, senior pastor of Grace Chapel, an evangelical Colorado mega-church, resigned following a phone call outing him to the church. “I have struggled with homosexuality since I was a five-year-old boy,” Barnes said, according to the Denver Post. “I can’t tell you the number of nights I (had) cried myself to sleep, begging God to take this aw

Benedict, a successful accountant, who's just been dumped for being boring, is surprised and pleased to learn that he's inherited half ownership in a gay bar from his estranged father, seeing it as a chance to get out of his rut. That's until he meets his new partner, a mouthy, disturbingly hot Brit called Shane, and discovers that the bar's in the red and Shane's not interested in renovations that could drive away their regulars. When a late-night confrontation turns into the hottest sex either of them has experienced, they realize there's one way to fit a square peg into a round hole, but are they solving problems or papering over the cracks? As they explore the new dynamic between them, pushing their limits until Ben's shocked at where his desire to dominate Shane takes him, the renovations to the bar begin. They're building something new, something good -- but fear and an unexpected act of violence may tear down what they've created.
