I've read the book.  Attend courses by Homrich and you'll quickly see why she chose the title 'How to Regain CONTROL Over the Family'.  Homrich runs a 'Personal Development' Center where she seeks to CONTROL all in attendance, bending them to her will with a skill much like so many other cult leaders.  Her approach to control leaves many in the room spellbound - but fewer than 10% return to hear more of her tyrannical insights.   She's known for belittling and berating, defending against lawsuits from former business partners, discrimination complaints and even slamming people into the wall - pinning them there with her massive intent to create an 'emotional awakening'.   Her ethics and profit motive leave much to be desired, as does this book.
