I agree with previous reviewers who said (paraphrased)--"Yes, but the point is that someone who is emotionally stuck doesn't know how to do what this author suggests." I did get that vibe from this book more than once and it was one of the reasons it made it to my "didn't finish wall of shame" list.

Yet that doesn't make the content unusable.

The author is a practicing psychiatrist who, from my reading, knows that what she's describing takes time and is a lifelong process.

Sometimes the best value of a book is as a primer. It may not change drastically change my life right away, but as it marinates in the back of my mind...

Maybe that's where all the magic happens anyway--in the background where I don't THINK. (smiles)

If today is mostly better than yesterday, I call that A Win.

PS Added 12/6/2012: The early section on dreaming and especially "how to sleep well," were very well done. She gave sleep a flavor and it is delicious! ( )

This had some great ideas in it. I listened to it mainly in the car so I couldn't take notes. I might have read a physical book instead. But it was good. Good examples. I had several ah ha moments listening. I will implement some of the exercises. ( )

It's ok. Not very many ah ha moments. Very hippish ideas. Some good ones. Doesn't explain how to cultivate "intuition" or where it comes from and (in my opinion) is a off on how to tell the difference between intuition and wishing. She tends to bend religious and philosophical ideas to fit her own. ( )
