Greed by Michael Taylor

Greed by Michael Taylor

As America tries to recover from the economic meltdown of the past several months, its important that this country begin looking for solutions that will keep this from happening in the future. As our country prepares itself for the new administration the question we must now ask ourselves is “Can the new administration repair the damage that’s already been done? Is it possible to fix this mess within the next four years? Eight years? These are some very tough questions with no easy answers.

Without question there is no shortage of opinions on this matter. The political pundits, financial community, business community and even the religious community have expressed strong opinions on what it’s going to take to move us through this recession and restore our country’s economic health.

As I’ve listened to the “experts” I have yet to hear anyone give any concrete long term sustainable solutions that will not have a negative impact on our economy and our way of life. Th…

A New Conversation with Men by Michael Taylor

“Men hate each other because they fear each other, and they fear each because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they are often separated from each other.” —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

EDC Creations' Intimate Interview with Michael Taylor



Michael Taylor makes no bones about the intent of his book “A New Conversation with Men.” It is nothing less than to create a new paradigm of masculinity in this country. He says so in the very first paragraph of Chapter One. By that, he means that some of the old ways of being a man in society no longer work. “What is needed,” he says, “are some new ways of being a man that empowers men to become better husbands, fathers, lovers, and friends.” This is a tall order, but the prospects of being a better husband, father, lover, and friend got my attention and I couldn’t wait to get started.

Taylor admits he is not an educated man, at least in terms of college degrees and advanced education; but his book runs on high octane motivation, and he is eminently qualified to dispense this motivation with common sense and real life examples. He is an entrepreneur…
