Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Starred Review.

In Stephenson's powerful and practical debut, the psychotherapist and professional speaker reveals how to banish self-doubt and insecurity in a world where they may seem omnipresent. Beginning with the source of his own struggle, a rare and painful disease that causes his bones to weaken and break under minimal pressure, Stephenson offers a structured approach to a wide array of topics, including dating, weight loss, lack of motivation, friendship, finances, and goals. While his advice is encouraging and insightful, Stephenson's text is also notable for examples, mottos and resonant personal stories of enormous obstacles and accomplishments (his work with the Clinton administration, attaining his Ph.D., opening his own private practice). Though his unwavering optimism can be daunting (bringing one's day-to-day gripes into sharp relief), Stephenson is empowering and uplifting throughout, and should prove helpful whether facing a lifelong challenge or a more immediate battle.

    Surprisingly helpful

    This is a surprisingly helpful self-help book. I heard the author speak on the radio, and his approach and positive outlook was enough to get me to order the book. This is basically a cognitive approach, providing challenges to self-defeating ways of viewing the world, but pursuasive in their positive approach. The author has overcome more than his fair share of life trials, and has emerged with a very positive, and contagious, attitude about life. This book is especially helpful for dismantling the excuses we all have that are often so effective in stopping us in our tracks from making changes in our lives or taking risks.

    All self help books provide something worth more than gold.

    Then, there are self books like this one that should be taught to every student in high school. Sean is no ordinary self help author that thinks he knows the answers to your problems. The only people that won't be perfect for this book are the ones that essentialy helped him write it. This is one of those books that will be useful 2,012 years from now, indeed, until every problem of the world is gone.
