Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Compulsive eating to fill an inner void, the use of anger as a pretext to punish others, the perpetual muddle of the indecisive person, self-defeating resentmentthese behavior patterns illustrate that an ethical dimension frequently lies at the core of emotional problems, stresses the author. Ethical therapists, part of a burgeoning movement, deal with patients' neuroses in moral and spiritual terms. Unlike psychoanalysts, who are apt to view guilt as an irrational feeling, the ethical therapist instead investigates what a person is feeling guilty about. In this system, anxiety may be a positive developmenta sign that a person's deep intuitive widsom is demanding change. Andrews, a psychologist and author of Biofeedback, traces the ethical approach back to Plato. His book also offers advice on how to alleviate boredom, depression, frustration, fears, loneliness, addiction and feelings of worthlessness. August 7
Library Journal
Andrews, a psychologist in private practice, is a lapsed behaviorist now advocating an alternative approach to non-normative forms of conventional therapy. His approach parallels developments emerging in journalism, health care, and other professions where the study of ethics is in favor once again. Andrews both pleads for practitioners to acknowledge the ineffectiveness of those traditional value-free therapies that merely consider the patient as victim and recommends a few practical techniques that can strengthen our intuitive convictions regarding guilt, boredom, indecision, worthlessness, anxiety, and addiction. Unexamined assumptions and a lack of discussion about the more challenging theories of applied ethics do not detract from the wholesome advice given in this accessible book. William Abrams, Portland State Univ. Lib., Ore.

    Having more integrity is good for you.

    Lewis Andrews has done something important here. Living honestly without being intolerant of others is definitely the way to live. He shows you how to accomplish that, and why you would want to. It is good for your psychological health and good for your physical health. He makes many good points in his book, and cites lots of studies on the subject, including some research by Julian Rotter, a researcher who studied the social lives of habitually honest people and compared their lives to people who felt that sometimes you have to be dishonest. He found that honest people attracted honest, loyal, trustworthy people into their lives. And dishonest people attracted unreliable, disloyal, deceitful people into their lives. Of course! The only person who wants to hang out with a dishonest person is another dishonest person. So by improving your own level of honesty, you increase the quality of the people in your life. This is but one of many sound conclusions you'll find in this excellent book. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works. I'm an expert on what works and what doesn't. Honesty works. You'll find out how and why in To Thine Own Self Be True.
