This is not a book to read; it is a book to work. I have worked through this book with a counselor for many months now, and I can honestly say it has changed the course of my life.

Since childhood, I have struggled with low self-esteem. I have a Ph.D. in physics, a good job, and a loving wife. However, I still said to myself on a daily basis, "I am a failure." "It is all my fault." "It is only a matter of time before they find out I am not as good as they think I am." "I don't understand why she is still with me." Working through this book with my counselor has been the most important part of breaking out of these lies about myself.

This is not easy work, but it is worthwhile, and I would recommended to anyone whose head is echoing with the same self-hating lies.
