About the author

Some practical daily things of life, taking care of what needs to be taken care of, self care of course, and recording and giving yourself credit for all daily achievements is outlined as helpful, which it can be.
But occasionally this veers into trivialising and it was over simplistic at times, “Eat many vegetables” is one of the more unintentionally humorous recommendations. The authors state that “all problems have a solution”. Anyone in touch with reality knows that is not true; perhaps one has to also learn to accept the things that are probably not going to change and be at peace with that? Also, predictably, mindfulness is offered as a panacea, something not everyone is convinced by.
There were a few interesting aspects, for example p. 20 and the “ cognitive distortions” list (though no real explanation given of why this might occur for some people).
It was nearly all written in a strangely clinical way too .... barely a murmur of a heartbeat ....
Another approach is just to simply allow ones feelings, even if they are uncomfortable, let them be, give them all the time and space they need and most of all have deep compassion for them.
It is also a pretty godd read just for the information. Would recommend.
It encourages you to write out your thoughts, whatever they may be. Just write them without judgment and look over them later. Consider the thoughts that run through your head day after day. Notice how many of them are negative, putting yourself down. Now work on changing those thoughts.
Maybe everyone will hate this review. Maybe everyone will love it. Maybe the result will be somewhere in between. Either way I've managed to write it, thanks in part because I've been working through some of the exercises in this amazing book.
So if you want to do better and feel better, buy this book and start working through the it. You'll be glad you did.
