Book Description:
One of the best kept secrets in life is that there are five loves and that each love has its own modality. "The Fifth Love" describes how our dysfunctional loving is the result of employing the wrong love and that the object of life is not to love one thing exclusively, nor is it to love many things indiscriminately, but to love the highest thing. The Five Loves Affectionate-love: to be loved, the beloved must be lovable. Fond-love: to be loved, the beloved must be useful. Aesthetic-love: to be loved, the beloved must be beautiful. Selfless-love: to be loved, the lover must love first. Covenant-love: to be loved, love as one is loved. The fifth love reveals the terms on which we love the people, possessions, activities, and ideas in our lives and answers the questions "Why do good people love badly?" and "How do good loves go bad?"

Book Description:
In between Babe Ruth and Michael Jordan there was Joe Namath, one of the few sports heroes to transcend the game he played. Novelist and former sports-columnist Mark Kriegel’s bestselling biography of the iconic quarterback details his journey from steel-town pool halls to the upper reaches of American celebrity—and beyond. The first of his kind, Namath enabled a nation to see sports as show biz. For an entire generation he became a spectacle of booze and broads, a guy who made bachelorhood seem an almost sacred calling, but it was his audacious “guarantee” of victory in Super Bowl III that ensured his legend. This unforgettable portrait brings readers from the gridiron to the go-go nightclubs as Kriegel uncovers the truth behind Broadway Joe and why his legend has meant so much to so many.
