Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

Dr. Phil's fans seem to like having someone with absolute confidence tell them who's responsible for their problems--they are. In the studio recordings of his previous books, what you hear is the sheer intelligence of his ideas. He's a fabulously lucid writer whose lexicon of advice on living is as good as it gets. In this live seminar recording, he promises to pick up where the two books left off, and he does break out some new ideas here and there. But with an audience, his ideas have more of a strong-arm quality, and too much time is spent hitting individual audience members over the head with them. Entertaining and powerful, yes, but this will probably appeal to a narrower range of sensibilities than the studio readings.

I received these tapes not a week ago and am currently on my second round of listening. I have read much on Dr. McGraw, including his books, and as someone who has searched through life for "the answer" on how to change, I found it from Dr. McGraw - and these tapes send it home. By the time I finished with the fourth tape, I wanted to do better and knew I could. I have already made many changes as a result of Dr. McGraw's books, now these tapes give me more to do and I can't wait to get started. I recommend these highly, and may just give them as Christmas presents. What better thing to give someone than a better future.

I bought this book and read it cover to cover in one night. I couldn't put it down! Self Matters is now helping me to fulfill my potential as person by putting into action Dr. Phil's five step plan. I am shedding my "fictional self" and reaching for my "authentic self" with unabashed fervor. I will no longer find me through others and I encourage you to do the same!!!!! Buy this for you mom, your husband, brother, sister, children, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors and anyone else you know who is just okay. It's time for us all to be the AMAZING, WONDERFUL beings we were born to become. I know this is a life process, and it will take work, but with a little luck along the way and the guidance of this groundbreaking book, I WILL NOT BE THE SAME PERSON I WAS YESTERDAY!

Seriously, this is one of the best seminars I've ever heard. Dr. Phil's Life Strategies combined with his incredible speaking ability gives listeners the tools to change their life. He kept me so interested in what he was saying that I couldn't wait to hear what he would say next. The primary purpose is for YOU to change the things in YOUR life that need fixing and a hopeful consequence of those actions will also improve your relationship with your Significant Other & Loved Ones.
I can only hope that he will release even more seminars and other self-help books on different topics, as there are many other American epidemics that I'm sure he could help with. Hey Dr. Phil, if you're reading this, how about releasing more self-help books for things such as addiction, over-eating, or self-esteem?
Back to these tapes, BUY THEM TODAY (don't wait), borrow them from a friend, or rent them from your local library. You won't be disappointed! If you're looking for the motivation and the tools to change your life, these tapes are for you. The next step would be for your SPOUSE or SO to listen to them...

Truly, though all of what Dr. Phil has to say is common sense (with a little stand up comedy thrown in) in this four cassette edition about your life, and although most of what he says you knew somewhere in your heart, you will learn the most incredible things. I thought our relationship (my husband and mine) was good, I can see I was right, but there were so many ways to make it THE relationship that I never even thought about. I truly think this man could run for President. One thing he mentions is passion, having a passion for the things in life that matter most to you (among having other things) and you can just hear the passion in HIS voice, knowing he believes what he is saying, and not just believes it, but wants YOU to know it. Because it's simple. Because you already know it and have to face it sooner or later. Because it will make your life so much easier. Don't struggle emotionally one more minute, just listen to these cassettes together with a partner, alone on your headset, while resting in the bath, and you will absolutely be amazed by the transformation that sets inside of you almost instantly - all good of course. You will also learn some harsh realities, along with a few things you didn't know about Dr. Phil that will surprise you. Best of all, no griping, no grumbling, just listen, and the fee....well, judge for yourself what you would pay a therapist for all this great advice and all of this time. Dr. Phil bills by the heart. Thanks again and again Dr. Phil.

DON'T START LISTENING TO THESE TAPES if you don't have five hours to spend. Because once you start listening you just can't stop. It's the most fascinating, brilliant, interesting and catching speach I have ever heard. Dr McGraw is a BRILLIANT speaker. Seemingly without script he speaks for five hours without loosing track, without getting tired. His voice goes down in calm "caring mode", up in exiting "this is a biggie mode" and so on, and catches you so you just can't stop taking to your heart every word he says. I sure wish there were more recordings of this kind available.

Dr. Phil takes you through a common sense, no nonsense approach to life's issues. These tapes keep you intrigued and are a great companion on long drives(especially in traffic). Dr. Phil tells it like it is and his straight forward approach is very much appreciated in this fake-feel good world! The tapes are a great compliment to his Life Strategies book. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking at taking that first step to transform and enhance their life.

I found Dr. Phil's tapes to be a wake up call - saying out loud what most of us already know. It was reinforcing and I listened to every word - twice through. I usually don't find audiocassettes that interesting but this was really good.
