Format: Paperback
David Viscott's "Emotional Resilience" is a tightly packed book that provides the tools needed to unravel the behavioral and emotional tangles that complicate our lives, and to move on as emotionally healthier and happier individuals. The book is for people who are serious about breaking out of old patterns and who are ready and willing to confront themselves. Using phrases such as emotional debt, and toxic nostalgia Viscott indicates where emotions have needed to be addressed and how our personalities have developed as a result of not having done so. "Emotional Resilience" is by no means easy reading and digesting the contents may take repeated readings at different periods of time. I have reread sections of the book many times, and each time I learn something new. Viscott has provided me with the tools I needed to move out of old patterns and to realize myself as self-reliant adult. I cannot recommend Viscotts "Emotional Resilience" more highly!

Format: Paperback
David Viscott's wonderful book helped me understand how to honor and respect what I feel in everyday situations. How often do we hold back what we're feeling? And what does that create within our body? Repressing our true emotions is key to becoming a genuine person--authentically in touch with ourselves.
David Viscott's remarkable book should be required reading! When we learn to express what we feel in a honest, non-judgemental way--we share with others our own personal viewpoint. This is the beginning of truly connecting with people.
David helped me to understand that loving honesty is key to a healthy, authentic life.

This book has helped me to change the way I view both myself and others. I am able to cope better with the problems I have in life.
I have read a few negative articles about David Viscott but 'the proof of the pudding is in the eating'. I was amazed when I read his description of the personality types, I though ' how could anyone describe me so well'. I recognized things in myself that I had not been aware of before. This book has enabled me to become more independent and less of a victim.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Viscott begins his book by writing that ever since his early days in psychiatry he has wondered what makes people get better. Perhaps, had he considered the good research of numerous professionals, he would not have felt the need to reinvent the wheel. Instead, Viscott has determined that in almost all cases the emotionally ill person is concealing some basic, painful truth. Viscott's approach reminds me of those old melodramatic movies in which some hidden gem is finally revealed. It also runs contrary to modern therapeutic approaches which hold that many people suffering from mental illness view things as being worse than reality warrants; not because of some hidden secret, but because of flawed thinking patterns or brain chemistry imbalances. Viscott's approach is ideal for the controlling therapist who likes to sit on his perch and point out the hidden truths he believes the patient is running from. While Viscott's viewpoint may apply to some people, making it the basis for an all encompassing approach is oversimplification.
