Young-Eisendrath Excellent and Helpful Again 30 Nov. 2002
By "bunnyparty" - Published on
Format: Paperback
One of my all time favorite psychology books is the author's "Women and Desire." This more recent book has a more pratical, how to help yourself live better, focus. I find her message insightful and helpful in the face of stress and challenges. Her underlying message is spriritual, in both the Jungian and the Buddhist sense, yet the applied psychology here also reminds me of the concept of 'social interest' advanced by the great, and greatly neglected, psychologist Alfred Adler. You don't need to be religious to appreciate and benefit from Young-Eisendrath, and the same is true, perhaps more so, for Adler's books on social interest and human life.

Really Helped 2 July 2007
By Diane E. Malesky - Published on
Format: Paperback
My family - both sides (mine and my husband's) are completely dysfunctional. I've over-reacted for years. This book really helped me to understand other personalities, in turn, bringing me closer to my higher power and understanding why I react the way I do. With that knowledge, I can learn to think before I react. I have to learn this or I'll end up in the looney bin. LOL.

Highly recommended 29 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Excellent, helpful, and well-written. Of special interest to those interested in Buddhism. Definitely not in the same vein as the usual pain management fare. I keep waiting for the author's next book.

Simply, this book changed my life. More importantly, its message of service to others changed my life. Doing for others is what heals.

Can I Give it 5 Stars Twice... Please? 9 Feb. 2012
By R. MARK Plummer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cannot find words to express how excellent this book actually is! The author has an obvious command of the topic and presents it all in coherent, elegant, simple language. Most of us (unwittingly) carry around wounds and scars from the past which still trip us up today, years after the original injury. I cannot say "this book changed my life" yet, however, after reading half the book the first time I opened the pages - I am already certain I will reread this several more times to squeeze out as much meaning and understanding as possible. Readers with an interest in Buddhism, meditation, mindfulness, Jung, psychoanalysis and "waking up" will find plenty to appreciate in these pages. This is a worthwhile journey, especially if you are in pain -
