Bare feet on the ground,
This review is from: Liberation: The perfect holistic antidote to stress, depression and other unhealthy states of mind (Paperback)
This is a fun book written in a very wry stream of consciousness style and, I'd guess, not to be taken too, too seriously. As self help gurus go, the author comes across to me as having his (bare) feet pretty well on the ground. I haven't read any other books by this author but gather from some other reviews they cover similar territory- basically using accupressure points to "tweak" moods and general feelings to get the most out of life. I live in Australia so have not heard the author's radio programmes but can imagine they would be great fun. I gather the author comes from a martial arts training and psych-counselling background though I didn't see any mention of formal qualifications, much less a medical degree, which I initially expected when I first picked up the book. I was looking more for diet and exercise information and didn't get that from this book, but once I got reading it I couldn't help getting into the spirit of it. I gave it 3 stars because it wasn't quite what I was looking for, but I none the less enjoyed it for what it was.
