Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Problem solving is Dr. Joy Browne's business. Her syndicated radio and television programs have millions of listeners, but Browne solves their problems one caller at a time. In Getting Unstuck, she explains how you can utilize her personal eight-step problem-solving system. It isn't the size of the problem that matters; it's your resolve to quit being your own worst enemy and to start being your own best mentor and friend. This is good counsel that dispenses with psychobabble.
Library Journal
Folks who love to hate Browne will be disappointed with this book it presents some pretty good advice. The titular eight steps are part of a larger method for "getting unstuck from the past, and getting on with your life." However, readers can't skip around from step to step. The entire book helps readers identify, evaluate, objectify, and actively solve problems. Using concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy, Browne focuses on the process as well as the product. Thus, "extracting your emotional self from a situation" and acting in your own best interest are both key to getting unstuck. Browne presents scenarios that mimic call-ins from her radio show to exemplify various concepts, and although these scenarios are varied, readers may want more concepts and fewer examples. As in her earlier, readable Dating for Dummies, Browne's tone here is easy yet insightful and informative. Recommended. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
