By Cristina Carballo-Perelman M.D.
In this fascinating book, Cristina Carballo-Perelman, M.D., explores the challenges facing all women today in coming to realize their inherent empowerment at work and at home.
In Part I, Dr. Carballo-Perelman examines the history of women’s “unempowerment” as they progressed from caves only to bump into the glass ceiling. Were the sexes ever regarded as equal, and why did that change? How have world religions affected the perspective on and treatment of women? How and why have men come to dominate almost all aspects of society, and what’s necessary to bring about equality of the sexes? Dr. Carballo-Perelman astutely points out that women truly become empowered not by imitating men but by reclaiming their true strengths—in particular compassion and teamwork—which the world is sorely lacking. She points out the different between generating fear as a leadership tactic (which never works for long) and inspiring respect, which transforms everyone in an organization or in a household.
In Part II, Dr. Carballo-Perelman relates the “original fairy tale nightmare”—an allegory for status of women historically and through the ages to the present day, correlating the story’s similarities to today’s headline news.
In Part III, classic fairy tales are retold from the point of view of an empowered woman, each of whom embodies one of Carballo-Perelman’s “eleven attributes of empowered women:” confidence, teamwork, respect, compassion, humility, calmness, acknowledgment of others, honesty, courage, success, and enjoyment of one’s work and life. These tales are compellingly complemented with real-life examples of the fairy tales’ heroines.
This book is an inspiration for all women. As you read its pages, you’ll find you have within you all the traits you need to live an authentic life that brings joy to yourself, your partner, your family, and the planet. Dr. Carballo-Perelman gives you the practical tips, encouragement, and motivation to bring forth these strengths. This book isn’t about “winning” against men but about acknowledging and empowering the value of everyone and bringing them along with us into a world of equality and peace.

This is essentially the story of my life. The invisible wounds that haunt us. I hope that this book is an inspiration to those who read it. In writing this book I have been told is extremely therapeutic although to be honest I am just now starting the task at hand. I live my life daily in mental and physical pain, but I consider myself fortunate to have traveled the journey. There are others that are far worse off than me and others better off than me that is just the way it is. All of them however are the bravest and most selfless people you will ever meet. This book isn’t proof read it is from the heart, It is raw, a former soldier telling his story in the hopes to inspire others. I have left my name and everyone except my wife’s name out to honor their privacy. There will be grammar mistakes, probably sentences you’ll have to read over again but I intended it to be that way to show that it comes from the heart.

"Telling Truths" has a double meaning by intent. While it is a given that telling the truth is a good thing, there are times when one uncovers lies and deception and the uncovering of such makes it quite a "telling truth" about dishonesty and the nuance of "spin" and false narrative.
These very "telling truths" are at epidemic proportions in our culture today.
This book shares my concerns, conundrums, convictions, and
confessions in a way I hope will be liberating for those who are seekers
of truth. This is not to say I believe every opinion I have is without
flaw, but more so , that I am a seeker of truth. And, a speaker of truth

He is candid about life struggles and, at times, uncomfortably so. He is a lover of people, dialogue, and community. Above all, he is a fellow struggler on this planet and pursuer of wisdom.

Meet Author- Chris Mason
My name is Chris Mason and for the last 20 years I have been a house husband raising three kids with special needs. During this time I received my Bachelors in Psychology and a Master’s in Education. Due to the fact that all my children went to an online charter school, I had to find ways to save money and found many free resources through the internet. In fact I still think it is funny when I first asked my daughter’s teachers for resources that could help her when she first entered the world of online schooling, I only received 3 websites. I thought 3 websites from 6 teachers was a sad state of affairs, so Tutor in a Box was born. That was years ago now. My eldest daughter was in sixth grade then, now she is a sophomore in college.
My other books were born out of two things that happened at the same time. First, my family had to give up cable to save money but my kids still wanted to see the then popular That’s so Raven. Second, my mother came up with Mason Day to teach my kids that they did not need a lot of money to give someone a nice gift. Mason Day was when a person was assigned a family member and had to make them something, spending only 20 dollars. My thought was “Oh my God”. I had no artistic skills like my daughters’ and could not build things like my son, but I did have impressive research skills. So the “In the Box” series of books was born. All are reference guides to the best free stuff in a particular area. The series currently includes:
