More About the Author
Bestselling author of The Happiness Trap, Russ Harris joins forces with acclaimed illustrator Bev Aislett to produce an illustrated, shorter version of the original, hugely popular book.
From the Back Cover
Learn how to stop struggling for perfect happiness and instead lead a richer life
Commonplace ideas about happiness are often misleading, inaccurate and likely to make you miserable in the long-term. For example, positive thinking often does not work - and research shows it actually makes some people feel worse! So, open The Happiness Trap Pocketbook and learn how a new, scientifically-proven, mindfulness-based approach called acceptance and commitment therapy (better known as ACT), can help you find genuine wellbeing and fulfilment.
Whether you're lacking confidence, facing illness, stressed at work, struggling with low self-esteem, trying to lose weight or to stop smoking, or just want to be happier and healthier, this book can help. Based on the international bestseller The Happiness Trap, this wonderfully illustrated book is a unique collaboration between ACT expert Dr Russ Harris and cartoonist/author Bev Aisbett, and offers a simplified pocketbook version of Russ' original book. You will learn how to:
Reduce stress and worry
Rise above defeat, doubt and insecurity
Deal with painful thoughts and feelings more effectively
Break self-defeating habits
Develop self-acceptance and self-compassion
Let go of inaccurate and misleading ideas about happiness
Create a rich, full and meaningful life.
Dr Russ Harris is the author of bestselling self-help book The Happiness Trap, which has been translated into twenty-eight languages and sold xxx copies worldwide. Bev Aisbett is an artist, counsellor and author of several self-help books on anxiety.See all Product Description

I was looking for a book to help with anxiety and this has certainly helped. I highly recommend it to anyone caught in the trap that toy must be happy all the time or wanting to be more self aware.
Pictures and diagrams, and no wordy jargon and prose - perfect!
