As Michels explains, "Twenty-five years have passed since Phil and I met. The tools delivered exactly what he said they would: a daily connection to life-changing higher forces. The more I used the tools, the more clearly I felt that these forces came [begin italics] through me [end italics], not [begin italics] from me [end italics] -- they were a gift from somewhere else. They carried an extraordinary power that made it possible to do things I had never done before. Over time, I was able to accept that these new powers were given to me by higher forces. Not only have I experienced these forces for two and a half decades, I've had the privilege of training patients to access them just as consistently.Read more ›
Perhaps... this book is better than much of the self-help genre but hardly paradigm-changing to anybody who knows the field of psychotherapy and psychopathology. Rather, this book outlines principles of change one would expect from a self-help book based on treating celebs -- principally based on quick fixes and psychobabble that is aimed at pleasing your customers, i.e., "patients".
While this material has its place, it hardly scratches the surface in many respects. I suggest that individual seeking self-help consider the more useful, if more challenging, books like David Burns tried and true CBT book for depression, "Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy" or more recent more empirically based books such as Aaron Beck and Clarks book "The Anxiety and Worry Workbook".
Finally, for individuals with serious psychological difficulties, I suggest they consult a reputable (trust your instincts too) psychotherapist -- somebody licensed.
