Overview

A therapist looks at life's ups and downs (with a bit of help from Charlie Brown and his friends).

From the author of Waking Up Just In Time and Life's Too Short.

A down-to-earth and inspirational guide that will help you

* Overcome low self-esteem

* Build confidence

* Put guilt in its place

* Dispel loneliness

Everybody reads the comics. A chuckle, and then on to the serious stuff. One cartoonist, Charles M. Schulz, has for years done more than just make us laugh. He has offered a treasury of thought, philosophy and psychology.

Dr. Abraham Twerski, during his career as a clinical psychiatrist, has turned his patients toward Peanuts comic strips. Time after time he has found that the wit and wisdom in Schulz's strips is just what his patients needed to see themselves in a new light. It is a unique and effective jumping-off point for the practical, down-to-earth counseling that Dr. Twerski provides.

Let Dr. Twerski help supply the answers to a better life for you, and if you get a few laughs along the way, so much the better.

Dr. Twerski uses the structure of the 12-Step programs to guide readers toward a happier, more fulfilling life in this collection of down-to-earth advice. The bittersweet insights of Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang point out clearly and humorously our very human foibles. 115 cartoons.
