Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Combining the feel-good vibes of a self-help manual with the self-castigating fervor of a born-again believer's confessional, this seemingly candid spiritual autobiography smacks of bland impersonality despite its stance of ruthless honesty. A psychiatrist and author of Love Is Letting Go of Fear , Jampolsky tells how he learned to go beyond his selfish, manipulative ego and surrender to love and God. A friend's sudden death, his own bitter divorce and drift toward alcoholism, an encounter with Mother Teresa and his work with AIDS patients were milestones on his quest. His familiar message, reinforced through prose poems and prayers, involves listening to one's inner voice, recognizing the holiness in each person, transforming romantic relationships into ``holy relationships'' and letting go of fearful, negative attitudes.

In this quasi-spiritual autobiography, Jampolsky shares childhood memories and his experiences in medical school, residen correction: The title of Margaret O'Connor and Jane Silverman's The Singles Solution ( LJ 2/15), published by Crown, has been changed. The new title is Finding Love. cy, and successful psychiatric practice--all undertaken with a determination to succeed despite his being overshadowed by fear and guilt. During the crisis following the dissolution of his marriage, his life was dramatically changed by a chance exposure to the esoteric New Age teaching know as ``A Course in Miracles.'' He records a key turning point: ``It was a monumental test for me; I had to choose whether to listen to the voice of my rational mind, . . . or to listen to that quiet, calm voice in my heart.'' Later he founded the Center for Attitudinal Healing. A blueprint for others hoping to find the light in which he basks, this book will appeal primarily to those already persuaded by the ``California-style'' inspirational approach.-- Carol R. Glatt, Northeastern Hosp. of Philadelphia
