Avrei voluto apprezzare molto di più questo libro. Ho trovato estremamente originale e potenzialmente molto interessante l'accostamento dei fumetti di Schultz alla psicologia, ma le strisce dei Peanuts sono l'unico contenuto illuminante e di intrattenimento di tutto il libro. Per il resto, Twerski non fa nessun'analisi approfondita come invece mi sarei aspettata, e così i numerosissimi spunti che Charlie Brown & Co. offrono per riflettere sulla natura umana vanno a perdersi in un superficial ...more

Buona idea, realizzazione a mala pena discreta: il lavoro sule tavole di Schultz c'è, ma il legame con i testi che le accompagnano è debole. Soprattutto, Twerski non va mai oltre una saggezza superficiale da rubrica psicologica di rivista patinata. Peccato.

Diciamolo subito: questo libro NON è un'analisi psicologica che parte dalla lettura delle strisce dei Peanuts. Piuttosto, è un libro che prende spunto da alcune strisce per offrire tanti spunti di riflessione sul proprio stato d'animo e sui propri comportamenti quotidiani.
Se state cercando un "vero" libro di psicologia, siete completamente fuori strada (la cosa ha fuorviato anche me, a onor del vero), ma questa lettura può fungere da ottimo spunto di riflessione per cercare di capirsi meglio e,

A great little book about various psychological issues and problems, with Charlie Brown cartoons to illustrate the points. It's not going to answer all your questions on mental illness and it's not going to cure anyone, but it will help you to understand different personality traits and some of the thought processes people have. Highly recommended!

Ve lo consiglio, perché è leggero e scorrevole, ma allo stesso tempo fa riflettere sui nostri atteggiamenti.
Le strisce dei Peanuts si inseriscono splendidamente e arrivano dritte al punto.

My husband gave me this book when I was feeling a bit depressed to help me see my way through it. Few of the points stuck with me, but I did enjoy the Peanuts cartoons scattered throughout and used as touchstones along the way.

Un manualetto di auto aiuto o "psicologia da banco", che intervalla i consigli dell'autore alle vignette dei Peanuts da cui prende spunto. Carino, ma pur essendo breve, risulta troppo ripetitivo e semplicistico.

Just started reading this for the second time. Last read it over 20 years ago. I was a different person then, with more hair and less responsibilities. Cheaper than a co-pay and much more entertaining.

meraviglioso libricino che unisce i mitici peanuts alla psicologia: da non perdere!

è carino per chi ama i peanuts e per dare consigli pratici di vita ai figli che altrimenti pensano che siamo pallosi
