Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 085969660X, Paperback)Using the principles of Rational Emotive Therapy, popularized by Dr Paul Hauck, this book helps people deal with discomfort in life and offers advice on how to cope when things are not going as planned. It tells how to get things done, achieve goals and overcome inertia. The book covers the problems of those who take a masochistic approach to life's frustrations, and those who use "quick fixes" such as alcohol and drugs. It looks at the different types of discomfort people face in their lives, and discusses how to overcome the emotional problems which can result when things do not work out, such as anger, depression and self-pity.
