"This manual offers hope for the millions who want to give up troublesome behaviors. It provides eminently sensible advice and detailed instructions about how to change. This is not an easy task for anyone, but for those who commit to change, this manual will provide necessary guidance. I urge therapists struggling to help others overcome their destructive habits to buy this book."
