In Dr. Mautner's beautifully written book she has simply yet interestingly described a road map for all of us seeking more happiness and more juice in our busy, complex and high tech lives! And while she focusses on the Italian culture she does so in a way that makes it clear that a reader of any culture can take the cultural spices and seasonings of the Italian culture, add it to their own and crank up their life to a zesty dish to be savoured! The nine principles in this book will give you a spiritual grounding for life if practiced. I've had no plans to visit Italy before now -- it's become a must do!

La Dolce Vita Dr. Raeleen Mautner¿s newest book, La Dolce Vita teaches us that the principles of a happy fulfilling life are already embedded in the Italian culture, there for all of us to grasp and make our own so that we may benefit from becoming a little bit Italian. By following Dr Mautner¿s lead, and applying the many suggestions she offers for attaining happiness the Mediterranean way, we all may become like her people¿Italians who have long known how to live the sweet, happy life. By immersing ourselves in her step-by-step guide on to how to achieve happiness, Italian Style, we all may learn what I learned from personal experience with a La Dolce Vita psychiatrist who did so much for me in my own life. He was just the sort of Italian person Dr. Mautner describes and suggests that we emulate. As such he helped me more than any other psychiatrist by surrounding me, as Dr. Mautner will surround you, with his ¿know-how-to-live¿ aura, to the point that I glowed along with him. In short, this is a lyrical, beautifully written book, as well as the only self-help book I know of that reads like poetry. (For example, the opening pages alone are a literary masterpiece). Most highly recommended.
