Whitefish Bay TALKS: Robert Brust- A Different Path to Happiness

Robert J. Brust wrote Human Understanding: An Engineer’s Analysis of Life: Getting to the Basics after several years searching for the meaning of life.   He tells audiences that life was pretty easy for him growing up and he enjoyed a successful professional career as an engineer. Then a string of sad events intervened, including the death of his young son. This challenged him to search for a happier, more meaningful life. At his presentation he will share how he uses basic engineering principles to view life from different perspectives. “When you try thinking differently,” he points out, “this can potentially lead you to being happier.”

Author Thomas Galten LCSW CSAC 1:00 pm

Sun, Nov 17

Author Thomas Galten LCSW CSAC

This book, as is true of my first one, Enlightenment is Not an Ego Project, is not a philosophical argument, a theological treatise or a psychological theory or hypothesis. Nor is it a spiritual "how to" or self-help book in the conventional senses of those labels. It is but a sincere effort to simply point to my and others' experience of liberation and what we have learned as a result of this unimaginable and unforeseeable phenomenon.

Michael Bowen, author of False Flag in Autumn

Milwaukee area author of the Pennyworth and Thomas and Sandy mysteries appears with his latest political thriller, sequel to Damage Control, that wonders why the last midterm cycle featured no October surprise and braces for one during the upcoming presidential cycle. Once Josie finds the guts to leave the Beltway cocoon, where the weapons are spin, winks, nudges, and strategic leaks, then perhaps she’ll venture into a darker world where the weapons are, well, weapons. Bowen is author of several more mystery novels and is a practicing trial lawyer.
