Now I Get It! is a jewel of a book. It is deceptively easy to read, yet gives readers a lifetime of knowledge about how to navigate many a difficult situation. Through thoughtfully constructed tales and stories, Dr. Sapadin shows how life's troubles can be viewed freshly and with clarity.

"Go out and "GET IT!" It's more than a bargain; it's a rare find! Dr. Sapadin's book is a combination of Ann Landers and Erma Bombeck, along with a generous mixture of Solomon and Sigmund.
You will, as I have, (a seasoned psychologist) marvel at her humanism & humor, wit & wisdom, sensitivity & sensibility, expertise & experience.
"NOW I GET IT!" is comprehensive in its scope of advice, offering readers' savvy counsel for personal growth, social well-being and an enhanced family life. Dr. Sapadin's book should (though she isn't enamored with "shoulds") be highly recommended for parents, partners, and all those who want to understand about what makes us tick.
Indeed, I can't imagine who couldn't benefit from the profound lessons taught in this book in such a clever, easygoing, and deceptively simple format.
It's a truly sensational resource for living and loving - a must read for those who value creative advice, extraordinary insights and stories that teach poignant lessons. -- Dr. Irene Deitch Professor Emerita of Psychology, Former President of Media Psychology, Fellow of American Psychological Association

My goal is to inspire readers to step outside their comfort zone, expand their awareness and make wiser decisions. Each article not only imparts useful knowledge but shows how to apply the knowledge so that readers can benefit from what they learn. After all, knowledge by itself is of little value unless tempered by the guiding force of wisdom.
