Format: Paperback
This is a great book for anyone who is overly sensitive to criitism or other people's mood swings. It contains "recipes" to use when you find yourself either angered or hurt by someone else's insensitivity. I highly recommend this book for every household! If you've ever been told to be more thick skinned, then this is the book to learn how.

This book is an excellent introduction to getting in touch
with your own feelings/body/self-awareness. Wonderful, playful,
fun and practical exercises make sense. I am sure it
profoundly changed my life and was part of my path for becoming
a happy person. Unbeatable! Thanks Laura Huxley!

When I discovered this book many years ago as a teenager searching for wisdom and equanimity, this book, which I borrowed from a library, helped me learn some crucial lessons. The biggest lesson was as the title of the book says "You are not the target". So much of what other people do and say to us has nothing to do with us at all really. We need to turn around that accusing finger to point right back to the one who says "You...". It often speaks about him, her or them, not us.

I never forgot this book and finally bought myself a copy from this site. I treasure it like an old friend.

I discovered this book 50 years ago. It contains "recipes for living" by Laura Huxley, a force in humanistic psychology (and the widow of Aldous Huxley). The recipes work. My two favorites are "Dance Naked to Music" which taught me that wisdom is distributed throughout the body and "Questions and How to Ask Them" which convinced me that logic often doesn't lead to wisdom. These were radical ideas in 1963. She was an astonishly wonderful woman who personally answered my letter, thanking her for writing the book.

I read this lovely book originally in the 60s. It has good recipes for self discovery and insight. After talking about the book to a friend I found it on Amazon to reread it. I might read her other books particularly her book about her husband, Audous Huxley. I have read all his books.

I discovered the book nearly forty years ago.

The recipe that had the most impact was "Questions and How to Ask Them." I used it when I felt stuck and thought there was no life beyond social work. But when I asked "what was next" I realized that what God or life demanded was not a job title or career, but simply to live intensely, wildly.

I moved across the country, started a business and I just finished the first draft of a novel. I have started non-profit agencies, for profit businesses and two public-private partnerships.

All if it flowed from that one question, that one recipe.

It was back in the 1970's when I read Laura Archera Huxley's YOU ARE NOT THE TARGET. We bought this copy for a friend. The subtitle of this book is RECIPES FOR LIVING and that pretty well sums up what the book is about.
