    The author elaborates on Acceptance Committment Therapy (ACT) and how it can be used to improve one's life. I have used this in conjunction with a therapist. As a "stand alone" self help book, it probably can help. I don't have experience with that. In conjunction with therapy, I recommend the book and the therapeutic method as it's helped me. That said, not everyone will find this set of "wrenches" helpful for managing life.

    Accepting what we cannot change doesn't mean we agree with what we cannot change. That's not easy to wrap one's head around. Also, I've learned "defusion" to help myself with unhelpful thoughts that my mind has appear. The human mind is an interesting, complicated place.

    It does take effort to work through the methods and learn how to use them in the book. Just reading it and hoping for this to improve one's life won't work. Just like any other "self care" tome, this takes work. I'm finding that the effort I put in to this method has helped me. Not all the things in the book help me. Mostly, self care is about finding what works for one's own self.

    Overal, I'm pleased with the book. And I'm glad I've got a therapist who suggested it.
