Me gustaron los dos primeros capítulos los siguientes no. Estoy de acuerdo en que el pensamiento y las emociones van de la mano, sin embargo, no estoy de acuerdo en que todo se puede lograr dando a demostrar las emociones.

Malísimo. Leer este libro es una pérdida de tiempo. Es una charla de sobremesa que cualquier persona podría haber escrito.

La primera ves lo leí en marzo de 2008. Veo que el tema de las emociones es algo que no debemos dejar de tratar, en casa, en la calle, en el trabajo y antes que todo, con nosotros mismo.
