    Slay the Green-Eyed Monster!

    Your mom may have been right when she told you there were no monsters under your bed, but that doesn't mean they can't be lurking inside your own head. If you find that you are frequently visited by a certain "green-eyed monster," then it's worth your time to take a look at Lynda Bevan's book. You'll be exposed to the information necessary to slay your jealous beast once and for all.

    It didn't take me long to realize how often I was getting attacked by the "green-eyed monster." I finally got to the point where I had to ask myself if I was going to let this unpleasant thing run my life. Thankfully, I ran across Lynda Bevan's book Life Without Jealousy. Don't be fooled by how thin it is; these pages are full of helpful information to ward off constant fits of jealousy. Bevan eases the reader into the issue of jealousy by explaining exactly what the emotion is. She delves into the differences between jealousy and envy and provides examples that will really hit home.

    What I enjoyed best about this book was its simplicity. It's laid out in a clear, concise way. The language is not over-the-top with ridiculous vocabulary only six percent of the population uses, unlike many self-help books out there. Bevan gets straight to the heart of the matter and provides a definition of jealousy, its causes, and useful ways to combat it. The exercises are also simple. So simple, in fact, that you'll be amazed you never thought of them yourself. However, when done repeatedly as advised by Bevan, I was really able to notice a difference in the frequency of my battles with jealousy.

    As with most things, it takes a lot of repetition to make a lasting change, so don't expect Bevan's advice to work the first day. Confronting your jealousy issues will take some time and there is no quick fix. Bevan gives you all the tools and information you need to ultimately defeat all those nagging self-doubts that evolve into jealous rage. It's my personal opinion that anyone who has jealousy and/or self-esteem issues will greatly benefit from this book.

    Life Without Jealousy

    Life Without Jealousy: A Practical Guide
    Author: Lynda Bevan
    Publisher: Loving Healing Press
    ISBN: 978-1-932690-85-9

    Anyone who has ever been involved in a relationship, whether it's friendship or romance, has probably experienced jealousy. There are many forms of jealousy, all of them unwanted and uncomfortable, regardless of the cause. The author, Lynda Bevan discusses the various type of jealousy, where they come from and how to handle them; whether you are the jealous person or the one who is the reciepent of jealousy.

    This book is part of an excellent ongoing series from Loving Healing Press; the 10 Step Empowerment Series, practical guides written by experienced therapists for solving life's problems.

    The book is written in a style that is both interesting and easy to understand. Regardless of the reader's knowledge of psychology, it is user friendly and educational. From the broadest definitions of jealousy and envy, the book then delves more deeply into the many forms jealousy takes: sexual, romantic, possessive, emotional, financial and material among others. The psychology of jealousy is explained, as well the differences of the sexes in how they feel and handle jealousy, and the damage caused by jealous behavior. Causes are discussed in detail, and real workable solutions are offered to repair the damages.

    Regardless of which side of jealousy you find yourself on, help is available in this book. Highly recommended by this reviewer.
