This book has been sitting on my to-read shelf for about 20 years. I just pulled it out and read it, and was blown away by how it is able to communicate so much psychoeducation in such a user-friendly, understandable format. As a therapist, I've ordered copies for most of my clients, as the book covers so much of what we work on and discuss regularly. Personally, I found wisdom in it that I can integrate into my life. I also really appreciated the Zen philosophy underlying it all. I am wondering ...more

This little book is packing with perpetual learning. That is, taming your gremlin will be a life-long task but not necessarily an unpleasant one.

Here's what I think: If you read this thin book quickly without absorbing it fully, you may not get much out of it, or you'll forget what you learned. I read it slowly because I grasped from the outset that I'd miss something if I didn't. I soaked up the theories and ideas, suggestions and information and pondered it. More than that, I will read it aga
one of my favorite "self-help." I lend it out all the time.

A funny way to look at your "issues"
In a world of moreness and muchness, simplicity is like a light shining through to reach the core inside us so that we can see the essence of ourselves and the world a little more clearly again.

This deceptively simple book conveys clearly and powerfully the self-doubts that we often face - in the form of a gremlin. Most of us live lives with recurring thoughts of "should be", "should have", "I am not good/beautiful/smart/kind/professional enough". It never ends - unless we choose it.

I have read
Recommended by a coach many years ago, I initially scoffed at the idea I "needed" such a book but have to come clean and say it was one that changed my life. I used to keep a stock of them in my office to give to clients; now I recommend they buy their own! Recommend highly, even to the sceptical.
Two hours to read, with content that you can never truly 'get', but probably worth re-reading once a year.
I really enjoyed this book but I am a bit prudish and found the story around his teenage thoughts for a girl unnecessary (but that's just me lol) Otherwise a great read
