Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Psychotherapists Ashner and Meyerson (coauthors of When Parents Love Too Much, William Morris, 1990) argue persuasively that people who are never satisfied with their achievements are unconsciously setting themselves up for disappointment. Further, such thinking bears little relation to reality and actually signals the need to readjust the way goals are approached. The authors list the 13 characteristics of this type of thinking and outline ways to change. Throughout this readable book, they skillfully integrate theory and case studies, creating a work that sustains interest. It is less "New Age" in approach than Barbara DeAngelis's Real Moments (LJ 9/1/96); all public libraries should consider.January Adams, Franklin Twp. P.L., Somerset, N.J.
