o “Each new page offers profound insight and inspiration couched in simple guidance. Here at last is the essential tool for social entrepreneurs to succeed. A must-read work of art about the art of social enterprise.” (Doug Hammond, founding partner, Burns & Hammond, and former executive director, the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies)
• Love and the More Perfect Union: Six Keys to Relationship Bliss (Mango Garden Press)
o “This very interesting read creatively combines established principles of relationship happiness with an original and useful map and model.” (Dr. Jamie Turndorf, creator of Ask Dr. Love.com and host of Ask Dr. Love radio)
Frankel’s involvement with Winston and The Center for the Intimate Arts has inspired him to turn his attention to the fascinating world of sex and relationships. His 2004 book Out of the Labyrinth offered a high-level model of psyche and culture that provided deep insights into the nature of our global challenge. With Love and the More Perfect Union, his first book on relationships, Frankel brings his special aptitude for high-level modeling and insights to relationships.
Currently, Carl is curating a book on sex that will be published in 2014.
Frankel is a graduate of Princeton University (AB) and Columbia Law School (JD).
