Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The old-fashioned premise that happiness lies in peace of mind rather than material satisfactions is the basis for this excellent self-help book addressed to disillusioned high achievers caught on the treadmill of financial and social success. Including his own case among those cited, psychologist Kinder, who co-authored Smart Women, Foolish Choices , demonstrates how outwardly enviable lives are achieved through enormous effort and often at the expense of personal relationships and other kinds of growth and fulfillment. In clear, direct fashion, he suggests how to get off the treadmill and attain positive self-acceptance. "Stop improving yourself," he urges, "and start living." 100,000 first printing; $75,000 ad/promo; Psychotherapy Book Club selection; author tour.

From Library Journal

Going nowhere in your career? In your marriage (or your single life)? With your children? On a treadmill financially, sexually, physically? Always striving, never satisfied? As we approach middle age, many of us baby-boom yuppies are finding ourselves in at least one of the above predicaments. Psychotherapist Kinder (co-author of Smart Women, Foolish Choices ) has the solution to this maladie du moment: slow down; accept yourself as you are, not as you think you should be; reclaim your "forgotten" inner self; listen to your inner voice; and shape your life on your own terms. Pop psychology? Indeed. But this is also a wise and compassionate approach to a problem that is becoming all too common. Recommended for public libraries. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/90.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This one is a repeat read, as I say...so it's on my shelf for multiple readings. It was written awhile back (1990) but the insights address everything we're all still doing to keep our lives on track - and find ourselves under the wheels a lot. Engaging writing style, it addresses all the issues I'm finally 'seeing the light' about and is a companion piece I'd recommend to people who are trying to live richer, more vibrant lives.

Format: Paperback
Dr Kinder book is as relevant today as it was in the 80s when I first read it and perhaps even more so.Please read it without delay.You will probably find yourself on one of the treadmills.
