Format: Paperback
As a dedicated reader of self help books, Emotionally Free letting go of the past to live in the moment has been the best I have ever read on the subject. Discover your weaknesses and how to cure them, remove obstacles that are in your way for happiness, feel more vital, open and loving, confident. Shape the life you want to live. Identify yourself as one of three types, dependent, controllor, competitive. After being beaten down from family deaths and a break up of a long relationship, I found this book extremely helpful, and wish I could thank Dr. Viscott in person. Well worth the price

Read this book once, and you'll return to it again and again. Hits you right between the eyes every time... makes you face your own truth and get over past hurts. Particular sections that are helpful: discovering your personality type (dependant, competitive, controlling); how to get through an argument; symbolically ridding yourself of anger; and more. I loved this book so much that I bought the "Emotional Resilience" and "Meditations" books by the same author.

Wow! I'm so glad I ordered this book. I'd originally found it by looking for a "how do I let go of my past issues" book for my boyfriend, as all the other books seemed to speak in dreamy metaphysical terms that turned him off. But here is a book that explains things in rational, reasonable terms without being preachy or flakey. I LOVE this book! I'm in the middle of it now, and already changes are happening, awareness is heightened and I'm feeling more confident about myself than I have in a long time. Aside from the fact that it's so straightforward, this book offers more than how to "help yourself." Emotionally Free becomes a helpful tool in unraveling the seemingly indiscernible motivations of others. Have you ever found yourself face to face with a friend or co-worker whose reaction over a negative issue was such a marked departure from how they normally might react, that you have been flushed with fear and anxiety? READ THIS BOOK! I can't say how many times I've turned a page, read a few lines, and been brought to a memory of an instance like that and was thrilled to finally gain some understanding of what had actually happened. Amazing! You will not only learn how to deal with your own emotions, but your understanding of others will help ease painful, irritating or downright infuriating confrontations with others. I cannot say enough good things about this book.

I ordered this book because the title caught my eye; did I get an eyefull! Not only is it well written - come on, when was the last time you read a book and enriched your vocabulary at the same time?? - but it makes sense!

I was in the camp of 'oh no, not another book about childhood and psychology' when I started it, but a couple of chapters into it my reticence transformed into curiosity and 5 or so chapters into it I was hooked. What stayed with me well after finishing reading it are the character types, the emotional reactions in all sorts of settings and - yes, at the risk of sounding like an advertisement - how to experience the moment.

I recommed this book to anyone who is a seeker or anyone trying to make sense of the incomprehensible.

Format: Paperback
Found myself sitting on the floor of my bookstore one day about 7 years ago, feeling emotionally numb and yet desiring of knowledge/understanding so that I could come to understand... all that had shaped me.... and how I came to arrive at this place I no longer recognized as... my life. Instinctively, I knew what I needed was no quick-fix read which most of the books/authors offered. I was pretty sure I needed to go back and take a good, authentic, look at it all... it was time to stop running from it... 'it' was not going to go away. With David's assistance of the book, I discovered the path to much needed emotional healing. It was as if I had my own (in home) resident therapist with this material and the funny thing is... I wondered how this author 'knew' me so well when we had never met. This book was my initial step as I stood at the crossroads of my life and indeed I chose the right one. I recommend this for anyone who desires to heal and let go of all that is preventing you from living who you truly are.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I cracked open this book. I only purchased it at the recommendation of a professor who promoted this book in an "Effective Communications" class. I wouldn't label this book as an interpersonal communications book, but rather an INTRApersonal communications book.

For the longest time I've had a very, very short temper. I never realized I had this issue until I was 23 years old. After I realized I had the problem and noticed the stress it was causing me and others around me, I wanted to know why I was this way. Some examples of my bad temper: getting upset or angry at the dumbest, pettiest issues; interpreting things in a negative light instead of a postive light, thus, leading to miscommunication; being at the mercy of my emotions; the words that others speak influence my emotions more than I'm able to influence it--in other words, I couldn't seem to calm myself down when other people said rude things, even though I didn't want to get upset--I guess that's what you'd call an uncontrollable temper.

I just wanted to get rid of the bad habit, but didn't know how. After reading this book, I realize why I felt the way I felt and he gave some methods on how to fix this issue. I don't know if this book is for you, since everybody has different issues, but if you have a bad temper and you want to know why and how to get rid of it, this book will probably help you as it has helped me. I'd pay $100 for this book now that I know what it has done for me!
