The chapter on "Ages and Stages" gives clear easy to read guides on what we humans learn when and how, and then how to learn "it" now if we did not learn it then. For instance, if you are "Scared to say no and allow others to dominate." then perhaps between 18 months and 3 years you did not learn how to express and handle feelings. One activity that might be helpful for an adult today, is learning how to use a "Fuss Box" (complete instructions are included) to express those feelings. Then instead of the feelings, such as anger controlling you, you can express and release those feelings and then move on to problem solving. I found it to be the best book of its kind.
