Book Description

Combining six decades of clinical experience with cutting-edge research, two acclaimed leaders in the field of psychology have developed a revolutionary approach to happiness—one that’s accessible and practical enough to apply at home, yet powerful enough to create a profoundly positive transformation in our lives. Doctors George Pratt and Peter Lambrou have been delivering successful results to professional athletes, top executitves, celebrities, and nearly 45,000 other patients with their four-step process. Now, their revolutionary solution will help readers identify and diffuse the negative “blocking beliefs” that are standing between them and the happiness they want to achieve.

Editorial Reviews


“Drs. Lambrou and Pratt’s work has had a fabulous impact on my life.” (Ken Blanchard, Ph.D., coauthor of The One Minute Manager )

“As a returning Olympic medalist, I faced a major challenge trying to make the team for 2000. I used Dr. Pratt and Dr. Lambrou’s method during our Olympic trials and it really helped my concentration and endurance during the long and grueling competition. And we won!” (J.J. Isler, three-time Yachtswoman of the Year, two-time Olympic Medalist )

“George Pratt is one of the most gifted healers on the planet today. His work has touched my life and the lives of those throughout my global community.” (Debbie Ford, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Dark Side of the Light-Chasers and The 21 Day Consciousness Cleanse )

Code to Joy offers a simple, powerful, and brilliant method for experiencing authentic happiness from the inside out. And that inner happiness is the basis of outer success.” (Marci Shimoff, author of the New York Times Bestseller Happy for No Reason )

From the Back Cover

We are meant to be happy. Instinctively, we all know this, somewhere deep inside. We all know what it's like to feel a burst of delight. Every one of us has at some point in our lives experienced a sense of ecstatic joy, of euphoria at the sheer sensation of being alive.

Have you ever wondered why that experience has to be so rare and fleeting?

The answer is, It doesn't.
—from Code to Joy

All the positive thinking, affirmations, talk therapy, and pharmaceuticals in the world will never be enough to make us as happy as we were designed to be, according to acclaimed clinical psychologists George Pratt, Ph.D., and Peter Lambrou, Ph.D. That's because those approaches fail to address a third aspect of the human organism, one that bridges the gap between mind and body: the biofield.

Combining six decades of clinical experience with cutting-edge research, Drs. Pratt and Lambrou have developed a revolutionary program for rediscovering (and then never again letting go of) your innate happiness in four simple, proven steps.

Pratt and Lambrou's program has already transformed the lives of more than 45,000 clients, including professional athletes, top executives, and celebrities. Code to Joy can transform yours, too, with all the science-based tools and guidance you need to complete the process of becoming a more focused, more powerful, and more deeply joyful you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tap into Your Code To Joy April 5, 2012
Do you constantly find yourself in unhealthy relationships? Do you have an unnatural and exaggerated fear of heights? Are you ever despondent for no particular reason? Do you sabotage your abundance time and again? Are you deathly afraid of getting lost? Or do you suffer from something different but nonetheless devastating?

This book, by noted psychologists Drs. George Pratt & Peter Lambrou (and coauthored by John David Mann), helps us dig deep into our subconscious in order to unlock the door to what's really holding us back.

In his foreword, famed talk-show host Larry King quotes coauthor Pratt:

"Whether it's an unresolved hurt, persistent low self-esteem, or vague sense of anxious unease, most of us struggle with some version of what we call the fog of distress. It clouds our lives, interfering with our relationships, our careers, even our health. And no matter how many hours you spend on the couch, talking it through just doesn't always do it."

"Why not?" asks King.

Pratt explains, "Because there's typically a disconnect between what we logically know about ourselves and the place in the brain where our emotions live. Sometimes you just can't get there from here. You have to find alternative ways to get that information to click."

Throughout the book, the authors discuss "energy psychology" and share dozens of case studies involving a wide assortment of personality challenges. The one constant in all these cases is that something deep in the subconscious, based on an event that happened long ago (and, in many cases, that is totally forgotten by the sufferer) has manifested in the current, debilitating challenge the person is experiencing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Helpful, Innovative, Enjoyable Read April 21, 2012
Although Dr's Pratt and Lambrou support the concepts in this book with valid references to neuro-science; don't look for this book to be a technical, scientific reference book, rather it's written for the general public and reads as an engaging story until you get to the 4-step process. Being a therapist who also uses Energy Psychology processes, I was primarily looking for the Four Step Process that they put forth in the book. However, I found the first part of the book so engaging that I read it anyway. Although the book has a great deal of scientific information, you don't have to "read it with your teeth." I will definitely recommend it to my clients.

"I had Drs. Pratt and Lambrou's previous book on acupressure for the emotions, and have integrated several of their methods into my counseling work, so I was curious to see if this book would have anything new. After reading a 'sneak peek' at the forward and introduction at their [...] website, I decided to order it and take a look. I was pleasantly surprised. Where their previous book dealt primarily with emotional relief, this book digs deeper to the core beliefs that often drive emotional overloads and create what they call a 'fog of distress'. I love the term "fog of distress," it's so vivid and clear (no pun intended). Being a grief therapist, working on a soon to be released book integrating Mind/Body approaches with grief work, (Turn Your Frown Upside Down), I found this phrase a perfect description of what I call an accumulation of unreconciled mini-grief experiences. I'm not sure fog of distress is what my clients would call their inability to sustain joy or happiness in their lives, but it's the label Pratt and Lambrou use and as a metaphor it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, I Don't Know What's Happening April 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Now, I'm a spiritual person but I'm also a bit skeptical about some of the claims people make about anything remotely metaphysical. Nevertheless, I went into reading this book with an open mind and I'm glad I did because it changed my life. The funny thing about this is that you don't have to believe in it in order to give it a whirl and try it; it'll still work anyway. If you follow the steps exactly, you will notice some changes. At first, you might pass them off as just a coincidence or find some other "logical" reason why it is working for you but sooner or later, you'll have to admit, like I did, that the reason is because of The Code to Joy.

So if you're mildly curious about this book and you want to try it, even if it's just to disprove them, I say try it. You might be surprised, like I was, that the techniques actually work to help clear up past issues.

If you've heard or read that we are all created to have happiness and joy in our lives, but you're wondering why you aren't happier and more joyful, this book is for you.
Co-author, John David Mann, has made it pleasantly readable - not just another psychological self-help textbook. Drs. Pratt and Lambrou have created a brilliant formula for tapping into our highest potential. They've gone beyond the mind, body, spirit connection - a "biofield" at the cellular and energetic level.
Happiness and joy are emotions, and emotions live deep in our subconscious. If you faithfully follow the exercises in this book, you could make some highly positive changes in your life.
Code to Joy will help you find your best happiness and joy, more success in your endeavors, and all with a smile on your face. it's a truly good read, and can be immensely rewarding.
