This review is from: You Can Be Happy No Matter What: Five Principles for Keeping Life in Perspective (Paperback)
Wow, what a book!!
I heard about Richard Carslon through another Author called "Dave Pelzer", he mentioned him in one of his self-help books. I purchased this book and was unable to put it down!
I am suffering with Depression and have had it for several years. Im undergoing regular counselling and am trying to get my life into perspective. I have read a lot of "Self-Help" books and this book was by far the best read I have had in a long time.
Richard is a very clever man, his views/opinions and thoughts about life are amazing, his techniques are not something that you would think about for yourself unless prompted to do so, and even then you would need a reason to look at your way of thinking in the first place. Richard gives you the answers to your questions and really makes sense with everything he is saying. Throughout the book you feel as though he has read your mind. You begin questioning yourself, your attitudes and your beliefs, not for being wrong, but for what they could be... he even gives you techniques to try to do yourself.
I was getting to the stage whereby I did not think anything was helping me, but after reading this book, I was very impressed and am slowly attempting to gain another perspective on life.
A brilliant book, that if you brought for the same reasons as I did will take you far.
