5.0 out of 5 stars THE POWER TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE IS YOURS! July 4 2001
If you can only afford to invest in one workbook that will set you on the path to positive change in your life, invest in this top-of-the-line workbook. The exercises contained in this one will cause the reader to do some very serious soul searching which ultimately opens the door to self-discovery. Some of the exercises are quite in-depth; this is definitely not a book one can pick up and complete in a short length of time; the reader should be prepared to make the time to complete each exercise slowly and carefully, giving each one considerable thought and honesty.
What you learn may surprise you. As a counsellor with experience in behavioral psychology, I can assure the reader that the process of self-discovery can be complex and sometimes painful. For anyone experiencing severe trauma or emotional turmoil, this book will probably not remedy the situation - that generally takes professional counselling. However, for those who merely want to improve their outlook and effectiveness, the insight gained in this book should provide helpful information.
One might compare the process of self-discovery to standing naked in front of the mirror. In self-discovery, all the layers are peeled away until one gets to the core of the self. Like the image in the mirror, often one does not like the reflection, but it is only through acceptance and understanding of how we came to be as we are, that we can change the path of the future. The reader will come to understand one is only limited by self-imposed restrictions. This is an excellent workbook and certainly deserving of more than five stars. However, like all other self-help books, the effectiveness is only as good as the long-term commitment of the reader to change, and the dedication one has to achieving positive results.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still gotta do the work Dec 4 2002
By A Customer
An absolutely great book. Dr. Phil's strategies work and the exercises walk you through the whole process of waking you up and making you smell the coffee.
But YOU still have to actually do the work. If you are willing, then you can't lose. But if you aren't ready for basic training, this book will be taking up space.
Go ahead, be brave and go for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious self-discipline required Oct. 30 2002
A journal writer since grade school, I am very comfortable with self-reflection and documentation. However, this book requires a very high level of discipline to properly complete.
The accompanying book and the questions within this workbook are not intimidating or overly focused on self-phsycho-analysis, but the user has to be willing and diligent in their efforts to complete the work requested. If successful in these efforts, it does provide a worthwhile look at oneself and one's life.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Only Thought You Had It Together Feb. 18 2001
Before reading this book, I stumbled upon Dr. Phil's "Getting Real About Fat" three-part series on Oprah. After five minutes of part one, I was hooked. Dr. Phil's fresh & candid approach to getting your life straight is no less than life-changing. If you can get past your own theory of having a pretty good handle on life and opening your mind a little, I guarantee you'll realize what a fantastic tool this book really is. The best thing about this book is the fact that you can apply McGraw's Laws to anything in your life you'd like to improve upon or change. What's more, adapting these laws to your life and using them correctly on a day-to-day basis will save you from future failure. This is the first self-help book I've ever been intrigued to read. I can say without hesitation that it's the only one I'll ever need.
