What People Are Saying

Mark A. Reinecke
Supported by over 30 years of clinical research, Sarah Edelman has written a volume that is clear, practical, empowering, thoughtful, and forward-thinking. She distills a broad and complex literature to provide the reader with useful strategies for coping with life's problems. Many excellent volumes have been written on how cognitive-behavioral strategies can be used to overcome feelings of depression, anxiety, loss, anger, and frustration. This volume, however, does something more-it offers sensible guidelines for leading an optimistic, balanced, and worthwhile life. (Mark A. Reinecke, Ph.D., ABPP, ACT, Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Northwestern University)

    A reviewer

    Whenever I see a book like this, all I can think is that these ideas were taken from Dr. Abraham A. Low's book Mental Health Through Will Training. He says the same things, only better. His book was written for patients in the 1940's. His work has been 'borrowed' by so many so-called professionals in the mental health field. These professionals have taken his ideas and profited from them. Dr. Low started Recovery, Inc. in the 1940's in Chicago. Recovery meetings are FREE. His work has saved the lives of people all over the world. So, whenever another self-help method based on cognitive therapy is offered to the public, thank Dr. Low. He is the father of cognitive therapy and deserves the credit for any book published on the subject. Buy his book. It's much cheaper and has stood the test of time. So, all you cognitive therapy experts out there need to thank Dr. Low for 'your' ideas. Nothin' new here at all!
