Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"Can Do" self-help author Paul McKenna's hypnotic spell is quite literal. His new multimedia package proposes to make you happy with proven psychological techniques and a hypnosis CD. McKenna's approach is not a sideshow gimmick. The success of books such as I Can Make You Thin and I Can Make You Sleep demonstrate his ability to get results when others can't.

Publishers Weekly
Self-help author McKenna (I Can Make You Thin) views happiness as a “natural human state”, and to make depressed, unhappy readers happy, he provides various exercises, including visualization of feelings as colored shapes and letting them speak to you; looking into the future with “a giant connect-the-dots drawing in your mind,” and taking an imaginary walk down a flight of stairs while counting from one to 20: “When you reach 20, hum ‘Happy Birthday.’” Unanswered is whether one might achieve greater happiness by singing rather than humming. For a “happy posture… imagine there is a silver thread coming down from the sky that is gently pulling you up from the very top of your head.” Although such visualization techniques may offer hope for believers, others will remain skeptical, especially those who feel McKenna’s overly simplistic writing style verges on self-parody and belabors the obvious with statements such as, “Like attracts like, so happy people gather happy friends.” The accompanying guided “hypnotic trance CD” is calculated to “remove negative thinking” (and carries a warning: “Do not use the CD while driving or operating machinery”). While McKenna brings up such topics as yoga, brain chemistry, and meditation, he follows with frustratingly superficial coverage. (Nov.)

    You Can't Help But Feel Better!

    I was a bit sceptical when I read the title, but as I've read one of Paul's other books before and found it helped, when this one came out, I thought I'd give it a go. I have to say, I wasn't depressed - just feeling a bit low but reading this book has really changed my attitude to my day-to-day life. I feel like it's lifted a cloud that was hanging over me.

    There are lots of useful tips to improve your state of mind and I was surprised at how even the simple things, like looking up when you're out and about, rather than staring at the floor, like I usually do, really made a difference my mood.

    The best thing about it is the CD, though. I listen every night before I go to sleep and I'm sure it sets me up for being in a more positive frame of mind the next day. So, give it a go, it certainly cheered me up!

    Just a quick note of Thanks for the incredible growth that I hav

    Just a quick note of Thanks for the incredible growth that I have experienced working with your book “I Can Make You Happy”. When I started your book my life was at rock bottom. After reading it four times now, applying the exercises, and listening to the Mind Programming CD on a daily basis I have been seeing some amazing things happen in my life. My job is booming at a frightening however wonderful rate. My marriage is greatly improved. My wife and I are connecting at a much deeper level. I am feeling more confident in myself, I am more disciplined in my life and all of my relationships are much better. The biggest surprise is that I have a closer connection with God then I have ever had. Not bad progress for someone that has a history of failing over and over again. Thank you so much. I owe a great debt of gratitude for the work you do.
