Annotated Bibliography


ElCambioPsicologico 500x765El cambio psicológico (1998) - The psychological change

I wrote my first book for three reasons. The first one, because I needed to express my own ideas about self-help. The second reason, because I had plenty of time and I lacked money. And the third, because I came to the conclusion that if the work was mine I could recommend it with greater conviction.

Re-edited. Next revised and updated edition in October 2019.


LaFelicidadPersonal 500x765La felicidad personal (1995) - The personal happiness (1995)

Evaluating the book retrospectively I think that, of all my works, it is the one that says more things in fewer pages. Its greatest virtue is that it defends a model of happiness based on self-analysis and personal growth that is easily understandable and applicable. Perhaps that is why it has had so much acceptance among supporters of self-help.


Since its publication, it has continued to be republished uninterruptedly.

Published in Spanish, Catalan and Portuguese. 


ElArteDeEnamorar 500x765El arte de enamorar (1998) - The art of falling in love 

When I was young I told my girlfriends from then that one day I would write a book so that men would learn to fall in love. That immature illusion of my youth was transformed, thirty years later, into my most translated book. I suppose it was because defending that the art of falling in love is the art of improving is an idea valid for all cultures.


Published in Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Japanese and Korean. 

Re-edited. Updated edition published in November 2018 under the title "The new art of falling in love".


SexoSabio 500x765

Sexo sabio (2001) - Wise Sex 

Wise sex meant a qualitative leap in my professional career. Until then I was a psychologist who wrote self-help books. But since Wise Sex became a reference book on the sexuality of the stable couple, of which radio and television versions were made, my name has been strongly associated with sexological disclosure. As John Lenon said, "life is what happens to you while you insist on doing something else".

AmorAlSegundoIntento 500x765Amor al segundo intento (2006) - Love at the second attempt

I do not know if it is my most complete work, but it is the most extensive. Fortunately, the obtained acceptance compensates the effort. I know that its reading has used for couples to separate, others to be reconciled and some others couples to be better. That reminds me of what Petronius said: you can marry or stay single, you will both have to repent.

LosColoresDeLaVida 500x765Los colores de la vida (2009) -The colours of life

I have always liked aphorisms and one of my favourite hobbies has been to collect phrases and thoughts from others that I thought were especially brilliant and that inspired me to create my own puns. The result of this intellectual exercise is what allowed me to accumulate enough material to write this anthology of own aphorisms that, as it says in the back cover of the book, expresses "thoughts loaded with feelings".

PeterPanPuedeCrecer 500x765Peter Pan puede crecer (2010) - Peter Pan can grow 

Peter Pan is an endearing character who never existed, although his profile serves to define immature men who do not want to grow. But as my theory is that most of them do not want to because they do not know, in this book I offer them a self-help program based on Life Therapy that will help them overcome their scarcities and develop their abilities.

TuYYoSomosSeis 500x765Tú y yo somos seis (2012) - You and I, are six 

It is my deepest book but the least practical. That is why it is more suitable for lovers of philosophy than for those who support self-help. However, as it helps so that people can analyse themselves and discover their own defence mechanisms, surely every reader will find several slogans that will be useful.


Published in Spanish and Catalan


ElSecretoDeLaAutoestima 500x765El secreto de la autoestima (2015) - The secret of self-esteem

In this book I propose a new theory of security that transcends the concept of self-esteem. The basic idea I defend is that personal safety depends on four factors: self-esteem, self-image, self-concept and sexual competence. On this basis, I propose a method that is easy to understand and apply through which all people can discover the origin of their insecurities and how to overcome them.

ElNuevoArteDeEnamorar 500x765

El nuevo arte de enamorar (2018) - The new art of falling in 

Heraclitus said, "No man can cross the same river twice, for neither man nor water will be the same. That's what happens to me with The Art of Falling in Love. Since I published the book in 1998 it has had so many editions that it has allowed me to subject it to several revisions. The successive contributions to the original text have been so substantial that I can affirm that The New Art of Falling in Love is not only a new book but also a better book.


Updated edition of Best Seller "The art of falling in love" 1998


AmorAlSegundoIntento 02 500x765

Amor al segundo intento  (2019) - Love at the second attempt

In the same way that the first version published in 2006 was useful for many couples to review the quality of the relationship, the success obtained by the book has served for me to review the quality of the publication. And I must say about it, that in this new updated edition I have not changed almost anything and I have added very little. I think that everything I said then serves to continue affirming today that the couple that lasts is the one that matures and that when love leaves you you find yourself and that when you find yourself, love no longer leaves you.
