Product Description

From the Author

Radical Honesty is the Road Less Traveled
We all lie like hell all the time. This is the secret to our success. I wrote Radical Honesty after learning from my clients, based on twenty-five years of the private practice of psychotherapy, that distinguishing between noticing and thinking, or knowing the difference between identifying oneself as one's thoughts versus identifying one's self as the being in the moment, is possible when one tells the truth. Knowing the difference between ideas about reality and reality itself is the key to enlightenment. Therefore, Radical Honesty is the first step on the road to enlightenment. This is without a doubt the best book I have ever read. I can't think of anything I agree with more. Buy the book, read it, and then email me at SPARROWH@SHENTEL.NET. Brad Ph.D. Blanton

At the urging of a friend I read Radical Honesty about 6 years ago. From the strength of the lessons I was able to admit to my failings and dishonesties, and rediscover my center self - honestly. I've since met Dr. Blanton, and have to relate that he is the same in person as he is in prose.
If you have stress - if you feel vaguely dissatisfied with life - if you are tired of "being" someone that you are not, take the first step to health by reading this book.

I first read Radical Honesty in 1994, reccomended by a close friend of mine. Quite simply, it changed my life and the way I look at people and relationships. And it continues to change my life and the lives of those around me.
If you are searching these pages for a compelling reason to buy a "Self Help" book, let this be your reason -- Blanton's words will open your eyes up to a world you have only seen from a distance before, in random nights of discussion and odd windows of honesty...
It will change you. Brad Blanton says, "The truth will set you free." And it will.

I was in a dishonest relationship when I read this book. I knew it wasn't right but I couldn't break away because I didn't want to hurt his feelings. Reading this book helped me to realize that I was hurting him and myself by being a big fat liar. I was telling him I loved him and not feeling it and he believed me so he was in a relationship he thought was mutual but was not. I realized that the most loving thing to do was to let him go. Thanks to that I found my current husband who I truly love. I was honest with him from our first date and it was exhilarating. I knew I didn't want to lie through the whole relationship so I told the truth from the start. There was an element of risk involved but it was worth it.

This book makes me feel very uneasy at times, when it is not annoying or irritating. Strange to give it five those five stars then you might think. I love his honesty and the concept of being that so radically and my mind hates it thoroughly. So a kind of war is going on inside of me about this book and this work and that leads to this weird review. It is one of the most worthwhile concepts and books I have come across in quite some time. I guess I will return to this quite often. I can't pretend to understand or embrace everything Blanton puts forward but it is all so intriguing that it has a great impact on me. Read it if you dare. It might shake you up more than you bargain for, but that is all for the good.

Format: Paperback
This is the second time I have purchased this book. Honestly I can't recommend in highly enough. Even if you don't come out of it a radically honest person, you will hopefully at least learn how to be a tactfully honest one, and that's the beginning of happiness and a sense of self worth in essence. Once you are honest with yourself and face up to your imperfections but learn to love yourself despite them, you become more tolerant of imperfections in other people, and you can see the imperfections without judging them. It's one of those books that really can be life transforming, but it takes facing up to your fears to benefit from it, and if you're not ready to do that then it probably isn't going to be the right book for you.

Format: Paperback
It comes from a good place, but I found there were too many patient examples which got a bit boring after a while. Still, it opened my eyes to understanding why there is a total lack of cohesion in our society. And the sad part, is people are afraid of revealing their true selves (and scared of hurting others). Those who are brave will benefit, and live a life of purpose.

Whilst this superbly written, funny and radically honest book is about telling the truth to reduce stress; by the end of it you'll have had your awareness and perception of being raised to such a high new level that you'll never go back to where you were before..

This is one of those few books that I'll read again and again for the rest of my life....

Format: Paperback
The author, Brad Blanton, is self-righteous and angry. Aren't we all? At least he

admits it! This is the most up-front, "out there" book I've ever read.

You might expect a book from a gestalt psychotherapist to be lofty and inaccessible.

Nope. Blanton's ideas are elegantly simple yet profound; his language is poetic and

gritty. I'm a Mensan and a voracious reader. I seldom reread books because I

constantly seek new concepts. However, this book instantly went to my "favored author"

shelf, and I've read it three times so far. Each time I absorbed different

meanings and improved my life through actions he recommends. There are nuggets here

for everyone. What's in it for you? Have a read and find out.

The subtitle is, "How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth."

Get mad and get over it. Stop being a victim. Learn to create your life.

DON'T MISS THIS BOOK!
