    As a marriage counsellor, i have used the ideas from this book over and over again and again ever since i came across it in 1987.
    It is a must read book for anyone that wants to make it in the field of counselling individuals with personality problems as well as
    people with conflicts with others. \it is a very helpful tool for marriage counsellors dealing with pre-marital counselling,
    preparing people getting into marriage, as well as for married couples that want thew best out of marriage.
    This a book for all ages and all cases of helping relationships. I recommend it for all counssellors.

    Thank you, John. Now I know who I am.

    I first read this book in 1974. Two weeks ago it was put in my 'path' again. After re-reading it, I was in Awe. Much of what I had absorbed then, with repitition, has asimilated into my sub-conscious mind. In a sense, it has revolutionized my life. Thirty-three years ago I was considered to be a 'lost cause', at least by myself. Little did I know at that time I could change my personality. I believe it took Divine Intervention and John Powell was an Instrument along with many other authors of similar content. I am involved with a spiritually orented fellowship that encourages a life style based on Universal Principles. I thank God for putting you in my 'Path', JOHN.

    A Classic Users Manual for any Human

    I've had this book since I was 20 or so, maybe earlier, but so that is about 22+ years..there have been periods where I haven't touched it for a few years, then times where I've read it 2x in one day..or kept it bedside for weeks on end. It has helped me to understand not only myself, but others I think I know well, and whom I don't know so well. Through my teens and much of my 20's, I passed through mainly hiding myself for reasons I didn't even know or deserve to do to myself. I either kept people at a distance literally, through shallow relationships, or with blurring my 'reality' with drugs/alchohol. Now pretty successful at 42 years old-it's crazy but I still have some fears sometimes when I am with 'new' people, even some who obviously like me and seek out my company. Books like this one help me to know that others probably feel these things too, and I shouldn't hide it..I should just tell them and we'll both feel better. This book, along with others have been -literally- lifesavers for me over the years. I recommend most of Powell's books that I have read. For some people, the Christian influences in some books(not this one)may not settle well. The Christian influences in some of the books may not settle with people that get all wigged out about 'religion' - however God is Love..and Love is the answer to everything-and that is what religion really comes down to IMHO. BUY THIS BOOK and lend it often!
