Marty Nemko's Website

His little-known ideas on improving your worklife and education, and on men's issues

Site last updated March 30, 2015

Dear Reader,

I believe you'll find this site unusually helpful. It and my blog, which can be accessed above, contains most of my 2,000+ published writings. Of course, feel free to browse but you may want to start with one of the featured articles below. Or click to my blog, which contains most of my recent writings, including links to my TIME and Psychology Today articles. Or for my short thoughts, join my 1,200 followers on Twitter.

If you might be interested in my longer-form writing, my latest books, my sixth and seventh, are:

How to Do Life: What They Didn't Teach You in School consists of the best ideas I've acquired over my lifetime on career, emotions, relationships, money, education, health, and life's biggest questions.

What's the Big Idea: 39 Disruptive Proposals for a Better Americaoffers reinventions of 39 societal pillars: from education to job creation, from how we select our leaders to how we should provide health care. There even are reinventions of spirituality and of how we view family.

Also, I have posted a number of videos on You Tube. HERE is the link.

If you wish to contact me, my email address is
