    Getting Sane without Going Crazy

    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.

    Getting Sane without Going Crazy

    I am a organizational development trainer,married with three children. I found this book personally useful and I would like to give it to every client I can. I have waited a long time for an informational page turner like this one. Dr. Lynn writes from personal experience and explores evrything from psychotherapy to spirituality.

    What a helpfull book!

    Dr. Lynn's Getting Sane without going crazy is such a good easy read. Dr. Lynn touches on subjects from Spirituality to heath drugs. She explains compicated terms in a way that an everyday person like myself can easily understand. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is searching for answers and understanding. A great read! I coulden't put it down.

    This one lives up to its title

    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.
