Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While not a conventional self-help book, this informative guide discusses 27 common behavioral difficulties that can threaten mental and emotional well-being. These include obvious syndromes like food abuse and irrational fear, as well as common problems such as anger, boredom, and procrastination, which can be serious if exhibited in chronic or excessive patterns. Each chapter focuses on a single psychological syndrome, providing its characteristics, probable causes, practical coping strategies, and possible need for professional intervention. This book provides assistance in understanding maladaptive habits and offers guidance in overcoming them. Recommended as a sound introduction for general psychology and self-help collections.-- Ilse Heidmann Ali, Kyle Community Lib., Tex.
