This book is life changing - if you are going to read anything at all, read this! By changing your own behavior in small ways, your quality of life goes way up. This book liberates you from your own emotionally draining patterns and shows you an easier way to live. Its well written, and reads easily. Cannot recommend it more, should be required reading for everyone, really.

I started this book thinking, "She wrote this book about me!" I had high hopes that it really would be a handbook for me. By mid-book, I had lost that feeling. While I feel that there is much truth to the theory that our inner feelings lie and screw up our outlook, I don't believe that all feelings are lies and not to be trusted. I also feel like this book dismisses mental illness. That's a huge problem for me.

Well, within the first chapter, she claims that *most* people don't NEED antidepressants or anti-anxiety medication (or, at least not for long): they just need emotional maturity. Couple that with the overall opinion that, because I'm not always calm, cool, and collected, I'm clearly not emotionally mature and I was too offended to get past chapter two.
