From the Publisher

After reading the manuscript, we were sure we had a winner. After test marketing “Entrapment” we knew it!

Hundreds of copies were tested with clinicians, clients and the general public for readability, enjoyability and effectiveness. The result was immediate and universal acceptance.

The Difference is:

1. Powerfully written inciting action to make change and excitement to share with others*

2. Humor and warmth showing a systematic approach to developing emotional control and life improvement

3. Practical exercises make reading the book personally relevant and useful* with a step-by-step “What do I do?” in each section

4. Includes a Section on Fun & Fulfillment; the last Section is a book wrap-up & overview

- Using effective therapeutic techniques yet written in a simple, easy to understand style*

- Packaged with valuable information, each chapter encourages the reader to revisit it

- Provides solutions to internal conflicts and issues that “hits the nail on the head!”*

- Focuses on the “overcoming” of problems AND on moving beyond to fun and fulfillment

- Makes self-help reading enjoyable and entertaining with relevant, humorous examples

- Makes the reader stop, reflect and put to use the information he or she has just read!*

* Represents frequent comments from our test market

Format: Paperback
This book is awesome!! Reading it has helped me make some very important changes in my life.... but most importantly in my thinking!! Who would have ever thought.."I CAN change my thinking!" Things that seemed SO serious, terrible or just plain unfair, now are just things that are called "life".Although I may not like certain things, I certainly don't let them run my thoughts, my feelings or my life! This book is so thought provoking. It makes you feel excited and wanting to do more for yourself! It nudges you gently to put action into your wants, dreams and hopes.
If you feel "stuck" like I did ( in my thinking, my life, my not knowing what to do to change etc) you owe it to yourself to give an honest try and this terrfic book WILL help you do it at your own pace.
I can't put it down.... I just keep re-reading parts of it to re-enforce my new thinking ways!
Thank you to the author for helping me "escape" my own entrapments!

Format: Paperback
Dear readers, ESCAPING EMOTIONAL ENTRAPMENT by Daniel Rutley is a book that readily lends itself to both men and women from all walks of life. I actually consider it to be a basic tool. One that is fundamental to building a strong foundation towards the teaching of a positive sense of self which is crucial for a wholesome relationship with the individual in question, hence, a path towards cultivating strong and sound relationships with others.
Written in an easy step by step comprehensive manner, it delivers useful and practical lessons regarding everyday situations in a language that is strait forward and devoid of any complicated vocabulary or jargon that may be found in other self-help books. It is refreshing in its approach because it is written in such a way that the reader will without a doubt stumble across a situation that is, or has been familiar to him or her at any given time of their lives.
Mr. Rutley uses several case scenarios that are credible and which demonstrate examples of how people react to situations emotionally. He teaches the reader to be in control of his/her feelings in a manner that offers him/her the power to deal with a problem that will become a solution instead. Furthermore, Mr. Rutley includes humor to his teachings so his 'page turner book' is a relaxed and pleasant read.
I strongly recommend Mr. Rutley's ESCAPING EMOTIONAL ENTRAPMENT book to everyone because we are all inclined to behave in an 'action/re-action'mode. This book will help you to 'RECOGNIZE'your emotional patterns, 'REALIZE'where you have made mistakes, 'REASSESS' the way you deal with things in life and finally, it will give you the chance and the ability to 'RE-CREATE' yourself so that you can be the person you always knew you truly were. As Mr. Rutley points out,"enjoy the escape". It's well worth it! Here's looking at you and your new beginning.
Thank you for letting me share my ideas with you. Sincerely, Bo.

I bought this book based on great reviews at Amazon and was very disappointed. I guess for a person not familiar with basic principles of cognitive therapy it might be minimally helpful. I found it to be not particularly insightful or clear rehashing of the same material covered much better in David Burns or Albert Ellis books. By the way, now that I look more closely, most of the 5 star reviews here are written by people who only have a single review, and it is suspicious...

Format: Paperback
"He" wrote the greatest self-help book of all time and Daniel Rutley has written the second. This book is your back-up bible! It is captivating...it is humorous...it is a melody for your mind and emotional development as a sweet song is to your heart...it is an attainable truth that is buried within our cluttered, busy psyche... and "Emotional Entrapments" provides the tools in clear step-by-step "now what do I do" scenarios, to arrive at clear, emotionally healthy solutions.
For me, what separates this "Escape.." from the rest, is it's direct and human approach. The learned Daniel Rutley has succeeded in combining humor AND valuable teachings in a most `non-clinical' delivery that is hard not to embrace. You will want to re-visit many portions of this book over and over and you will find it to be your constant emotional reference guide to self- development and improvement.
Read it, embrace it, absorb it and learn from it...You won't be disappointed.
Thank you Mr. Rutley for a most enjoyable, honest and refreshing read.

Format: Paperback
I have thousands of books on psychology/self-help/mental health and this is one of the books that I always keep handy to refer to, as others have mentioned as well. This book had a profound, positive impact on my life and my thinking. It affirmed alot of what I already knew but never saw in print, and there are alot of things that I never knew or read in any other book. If you are only going to buy one book today, make it this one. I highly recommend it and you won't regret it.
