[This book shows us that] life can be much easier if we cut its problems down to bite size. [The author, a] rabbi [and] a psychiatrist, shares with us some of the invaluable insights he has gained through his extensive experience.... There are many stres ses in daily living, but we can take distress out of stress. We can modify our attitudes, use coping techniques, and reach out for help. Even big challenges can be dealt with effectively. [The author] shows how we can put a different spin on things, so that we can be more productive and happier. Here are just a few of the many ideas you'll find in this book: there's magic in a smile; stress can be beneficial; some mountains melt into molehills; lack of success is not equivalent to failure; you're more okay than not.... In this book, [the author] points out some of the things we can do. His simple, down-to-earth ideas are refreshing in a world of complexities. -Back cover.

From Publishers Weekly:

Rabbi and psychiatrist Twerski draws upon his numerous years of counseling experience to offer advice and guidance on approaching the little and big annoyances of life with positive thinking. Interweaving biblical lessons, rabbinic teachings and psychotherapeutic coping techniques into 102 brief anecdotal meditations, Twerski teaches lessons on topics as diverse as how to "Avoid the Need for Regrets," "Judge Favorably and Act Accordingly" and "Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil." For example, in "May You Have Many Worries?" the author asserts that if you have only one big worry, it must be a pretty serious one. He advises us to remember all the little daily irritations we have so the big annoyances won't seem so overwhelming. Rather than expelling worry, he says, "bring in a few more worries, and then feel relaxed precisely because you have so many." Although some of his advice is simplistic ("Growth is not painless"), Twerski's sparkling wit and animated prose will touch the hearts and souls of his readers.
