Dr. Keith Ablow, bestselling author and host of a new daily one-hour daytime-TV talk show, presents his first self-help book. Based on more than 20 years of clinical experience and highlighting stories from his own practice, Ablow shows how ignoring or burying painful memories and experiences can negatively affect every aspect of our lives, and he presents strategies to help the reader transform the pain of the past into the power of the future. In a world where short-term talk therapy and medication are the latest trends to "fixing" an unhappy life, Ablow's message is controversial. But though examining the past can be daunting, LIVING THE TRUTH is as comforting and rewarding as it is transformative. And through Ablow's fine storytelling skills, empathetic voice, and straight-up advice, the experience of reading this extraordinary book becomes the first step to living a truly authentic life.

From AudioFile:

The author is a kind and genuine promoter of the belief that satisfaction in life must begin with an honest look at who we are and how we became who we are. A psychotherapy advocate, Ablow shows how facing old injuries can remove blocks to happiness and free up creative energy. Hes especially articulate about the ways people avoid their issues by numbing themselves with denial, repression, alcohol, irresponsible spending, or avoidance of intimacy with others. In a pleasant baritone, Ablow manages the mood and tempo of his reading like a pro yet never wavers from sounding empathetic toward his listeners. A printable worksheet will help listeners understand their coping mechanisms and aid them in reworking problem areas. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
