"Leman offers a psychotherapist's view of why so many people feel inadequate and set impossible goals they never achieve, thus reinforcing their belief that they’re not good enough. Leman’s latest book on personal functioning has a pop-culture tone that keeps it upbeat and inspiring—a real plus for listeners who might be self-defeating, unaccomplished, or depressed. With little jargon or intellectualizing, he offers lively ideas on how to change many of these self-destructive patterns. The author's advice and case histories are reassuring expressions of his humanity and ability to influence a general audience. Chris Fabry's speaking voice mirrors this humanity and adds a redemptive quality to this helpful guide. His narration is as appealing and relaxed as it is technically flawless."
