What good is having a blog if you can't plug your friends on it?

That being said, my good pal Tim Willard has co-written a book with Jason Locy and it is now available on It's called Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society and is described like this:

You aren't who you think you are. Culture tells us that in order to be liked we must masquerade as someone other than who we are. So, we lacquer ourselves with credit cards and plastic surgery and status updates hoping no one will see the person underneath. This 'veneer' allows us to silence our real selves as it gives voice to the alter ego we'd like others to see. But, is this all there is to life or have we been duped? Does material success equal significance? Is our only identity the one we steal from Hollywood? God's idea of humanity is altogether different from the world's. There is a way to live that sees beauty in our imperfection and, as Tim and Jason put it, once we realize this we can strip our veneers and live an unveneered life of freedom, honesty, and beauty.

You can find the End Veneer website/blog right here and pick up a copy of the book on Amazon here.
