3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By F. T. Barash on May 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
From the exquisite green eyes on the front cover to the compelling list of Marshall's Laws at the end, this book is as empowering as it is uplifting. Dr. Marshall practically holds your hand as she shows you the tools you need to deal with everything in life from grief over a loved one to encounters with bad relatives. Her emphasis on the power of self-determination is reminiscent of the classic childhood story of the little red engine that needed to push a stalled train up and over a steep hill. At first the daunting task seemed impossible but the little red engine said - "I think I can...I think I can" ... And ultimately it did! That's how you'll feel after you read this book. You'll believe in yourself and your ability to make positive decisions and get on the road to success. You'll realize that we each have control over our own negative behaviors, the choices we make and our emotional responses to others. This book could help you change your future - read it and pass it on!!!

A fantastic book! All the information in this book teaches you to get what you really want from life. By reading and applying the skills explained, you learn how to express what you want and how to weed out the unneccessary "junk" in our lives. It teaches you to take charge of your life and learn to live it the way YOU really want. Easy text and great life examples.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Marshall's book is definitely a 'how-to' book with lots of insight. She uses problem solving skills to help you define and prioritize your goals and how to stay focused on those goals. She describes how to be more aware of your emotional reactions to situations and how that can keep you from attaining your goals in life. I love that she teaches self-determination. Her 'Marshall's Laws' really help in making change happen for yourself!
