I have already tried and recommended several of the book's strategies, including the very helpful tips for staying on track with exercise."--Carmen Stuart, MD, family physician

Drawing on the best current science, this book takes you on a journey to enhanced self-understanding, joy, and fulfillment. You'll learn practical skills and new ways of thinking and feeling that will be helpful for a lifetime."--Nikolaos Kazantzis, PhD, School of Psychological Sciences and Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences, Monash University, Australia
