7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Thomas M. Krapu on May 26, 2007
Format: Paperback
The Art of Affirmation is a very subtle but powerful book. The field of "Positive Psychology" has made the discussion of people's strengths and the development of those strengths into living life at one's full potential a part of mainstream psychology. Dr. Furey's book is representative of this tradition. While not being Pollyanna about affirmation (it does not mean that people do not have faults and weaknesses), the book points the reader to a deep examination of themselves and our culture's tendency to not recognize and undervalue the place of affirmation in our lives.

This book reflects a paradigm that is particularly present in the professional life coaching field. The View of Man that Dr. Furey represents is full of hope and the possibility of people helping each other be everything they can be. This book should be savored, while also keeping an eye out for the awareness it can raise for where your enculturation or family history blocks you from being a more affirming person. Dr. Furey invites examination of this without blame, guilt or accusation, which in itself is very affirming! So this book helps the reader examine where they are falling short in their mastery of the art of affirmation and offers specific ideas how to correct this.

This topic would not be complete without discussion of receiving affirmation and Dr. Furey does not fail us in this area either. The inter-relationship between giving and receiving affirmation is described in a way that also inspires us to see where our inability to receive affirmation can be connected to giving affirmation.

This book is particularly helpful to at least two groups of individuals.
