Usually I dislike selfhelp books. This one is different. The author talks about herself and her life and offers tons of useful information in a most readable, page turning style. I wish everyone who ever got anxious or depressed or had a crisis could read this sensible book. It helped me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I found this book to be one of those books that I wanted to re-read; I had to make sure that I did not miss anything in my first read. Although I would not label myself 'crazy,' this pretty easy to read book helped me better analyze the intracasies of my life and revealed new ways of assessing myself as well as the practice of therapy in general.Was this review helpful?
