Some really great stuff in this book--I really love the relapse model that the author provides. It can also be found on his website. In fact, the website has such great resources that the book is mostly a bonus if you want to dig in a little deeper to the concepts presented there.

It took me 1417 days from purchase to finally finish this book. I just didn't care for it.

It's not a bad self-help book, but I would rather have invested it in therapy instead. I feel like the writer is advocating for this one miraculous solution (mind-body relaxation), which is pitted against all mental health problems (anxiety, depression, addiction); and I'm not saying it's not a good idea, but I would have had enough with 200 pages less. This self-help method would be better if directly experienced, taught in person, and explained in a short 50 pages, as far as I'm concerned.

Bought for two others in hopes that they would get help! Excellent author with good compassionate ideas. May just be wishful thinking on my part, but highly recommended if one is willing to get help.

“Letting go of resentments is not the same as forgiving the other person. You don’t have to forgive the other person if you don’t want to. Let go of your resentments because it’s good for you. Let them go, because if you don’t, you will continue to poison yourself, and they will become part of the baggage you carry.” 1 likes
