"What Readers Are Saying . . ."
Tim: I’m so proud of you for courageously acknowledging your “it” and taking steps to stare it down. We all have an “it,” but few of us demonstrate the courage to look it in the face and say, “So, this is where we are going from here, because “there” didn’t work out so well for me.

Congratulations! You’re on your way. I’ve downloaded it already. Looking forward to photocopying it, so I can carry it with me and show it to other people.
W. Sherman Rogers, JD, Law Professor and Author
My Dear Tim: I chose to respond by writing this note instead of calling. I was overwhelmed with your book. It takes courage to admit and recognize your problem. Many of us do not have it (the courage), so we go on in life with our heads buried in the sand.
I couldn’t help but think of my (late) husband, as i went from page to page. He was smart, talented, good looking, personable and yet, everything he became involved in became an issue which resulted in a lot of negativity.
I’ve become quite emotional here in my latter years. I did not want to cry over the phone.
Please continue to move on. We don’t know what God has in store for you. Thanks again for sharing your book with me.
May He continue to hold you in the palm of His hand, is my prayer.
Mrs. Wilma F. Germany, retired elementary school teacher, Boston, MA
"Two things impressed me right away as I read 7 Steps to Manage Ego Problems. One was the absolutely raw honesty. (I thought I knew Tim...!) The other was that he made a point of including those, like me, whose issue is not too much self-esteem, but too little. Tim points out that our human inadequacy comes from our original creation...plus the sin that causes that painful vacuum. And then he gives practical, step-by-step help for filling the void and reconnecting to the loving Creator with whom we are once again complete. I hope this blesses many, many lives!”
Debbonnaire Kovacs, author, Biblical Meditation for Non-Mystics
“Tim, I am blown away by this ebook you’ve written: your recognition of the problem, ego-holism (accurately coined word!); your acknowledgment and ownership of the problem - blaming no one else but yourself; the how, the when and the where to start solving or managing the problem; and finally, the seven recovering action steps. Don’t stop now, Tim, keep going for, as you say in the book, you’re “finally out of the closet”!
Dr. R. Timothy McDonald, (retired) Provost and Senior Vice President, Oakwood University, the last employer of the author
"Thank you so much for the opportunity to review your book. I read it from cover to cover in one setting. I believe this book will be particularly useful for young and aspiring leaders such as myself. Your transparency and honesty regarding your struggles and even failures are appreciated. Young people such as myself, look up to you and others and sometimes are not aware that you struggle with the same challenges that we do. Your book is critically important for young professionals like myself because many of us are on the precipice of being all that God intends for us to be. However, our egos can sideline that for us. "

“Well, Tim, I could not put it down until I finished. You are on to something . . .”
Dr. Althea L. McMillan, author, Definitions of Love
I do have a suggestion: that your ebook be distributed to all at the White House right now. I think (it) really could benefit as well. But then again . . . They would just pass it on to the Democrats. Oh, well.
