This book could save you years of psychological struggle, yank you out of negative emotional patterns, and help propel you to a much happier, more productive life. Martha Beck, author of "Finding Your Own North Star"
An exciting alternative to the usual approach of so many self-help books. Harris explains how we can work with ourselves as we are, rather than aggressively trying to alter ourselves. I m impressed by the simple and effective methods of ACT. David Richo, PhD, author of" How to Be an Adult in Relationships"

Highly recommended for anyone who is looking to overcome procrastination and struggling with a lack of confidence/motivation/direction.
Personally, I found the way the book is written quite cheesy and is a bit too typical of other self-help books (and I've read a lot!); some people may appreciate or may not mind that, but it did grate on my nerves. However, I did find it worth sticking with. I've rated it 4 stars for what I've got out of it, but it would've rated it 3 stars if it was just for the book and the style of writing alone.
ACT is based in Mindfulness and there are better books available to learn about Mindfulness, for example, "Mindfulness - A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world" by Mark Williams and Danny Penman, is excellent. I'm glad I discovered Mindfulness first, as I feel practicing that has been a massive help for coping with negative thoughts and expectations, anxiety and fears; the things that can and do undermine your confidence. Once you have that basis and add the practices and understanding of how to build confidence provided in this book, you're onto a winner! I found it has helped me and I hope it will help you too!
...it has also been useful for me personally. It has helped me to think about the direction I am going in life and to have a more healthy relationship with the inevitable problems that crop up. (Remember the famous Mark Twain quote: "Life is just one damned thing after another!). This approach makes a lot of sense and can help you plan and work towards a more fulfilling and rewarding life.
Just read that last sentence again! It really is that good!
I think that the author has written a 'classic' self help book. I recommend it!

This book relies on the ACT method and whilst there's some great help here, if you're in a hurry skip to the key points as it's unnecessarily wordy. Read morePublished 17 days ago by E. Hicks
