Making the Impossible Difficult: Tools for Getting Unstuckby John F. Frykman, John Frykman
When we get in a problem situation, we often keep making the same mistake over and over again. Sometimes, the problem itself is repeating a remedy that never works. It's a broken record or a hamster running in a wheel that keeps going around and around and gets nowhere. This book is about ways to change the game, to get on track and unstuck. William Glasser, Phoebe Prosky, David Baum, Joan Barth, Michael Hoyt, airline pilot Doug Doherty and about thirty others share their lives and experiences in Making the Impossible Difficult: Tools for Getting Unstuck . The editors and writers invite you to share their struggles, triumphs, and experiences in this anthology of poems, illustrations, stories, and essays. Some are short, some long; some require thinking, others are for drinking in. Here there are examples of tools for getting unstuck from the troubles that beset us all.

John and his coeditor have compiled more than just a series of solicited articles loosely connected by experiences of becoming unstuck. They have shown that therapy need not be a romp down the thorn patch. Therapy as such, needn't even be a word you use. We pathologize, disempower, categorize, project onto, but rarely do we really help, unless we tread a road paved to becoming unstuck. The articles of the book, John's wonderful introduction and subsequent article, are fine illustrations that getting unstuck just requires your presence and willingness to respond to a differnt voice than you are used to, outside your stories of yourself. For those who take therapy dead seriously, I highly recommend this book as your special treat. How you frame something has worlds to do with how you find your way out of the confusion. This joyous romp through the lives of many contributors is a gem in this age of fiberglass.
