The Emotional Toolbox by Dr. Bochner is a web of knowledge that is helpful to anyone who is interested in understanding how we interact and respond to our environment and struggles, or for a therapist/psychologist hoping to gain new insight into individuals, couples, family, etc. This book makes the reader feel like he or she is conversing with Dr. Bochner in a completely non-threatening and helpful manner. You cannot read this book without gaining useful and new insight into yourself and the relationships you have with other people. It will better your understanding of your life and the lives of others, and is a must read for anyone interested in learning more about themselves or the field of psychotherapy.

The Emotional Toolbox by Dr. Bochner is a GREAT book for anyone who is either struggling in their personal life, or for anyone who wants to understand more about how our mental health and happiness is affected by the hardships we all come across in our lives, and how to learn and grow from our experiences in a positive manner. The book reads like a trip across the road map of life and covers every topic imaginable. There are explanations along with suggestions on how to cope with the adversity most people are forced to cope with in their lives, all in an easy to read and understandable manner. Dr. Bochner brilliantly enables the reader to feel connected to the text on a personal and individualized level that is hard, if not impossible, to come across in this type of book. Rather than feeling like you are reading a text book, it feels as though your life is mirrored back at you on the pages, and the author is speaking directly TO you and ABOUT you. The writing is genuine, heartfelt, and relate-able. The book flows beautifully and is able to be read from cover-to-cover or in a pick and choose manner, turning the book into more of a private session with a doctor than a typical reading of a "self-help" book. This book is a must read for anyone hoping to gain insight into the workings of the mind and how their relationship to their experiences and to their environments can shape their lives. When you read this book you will feel as though someone is there with you, helping you to navigate through this crazy thing called life. The Emotional Toolbox is insightful, eye opening, and incredibly personal and will be beneficial to anyone who reads it.

I read several of the chapters of this book a few years ago, some as "handouts", some as downloads from the website. Each chapter stands alone as a helpful entity, but together they make a comprehensive cookbook of recipes for making lemonade of the lemons of life.
