4.0 out of 5 stars Good Low Key Self Help, September 21, 2002
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: How to Be Your Own Best Friend (Mass Market Paperback)
Reading "How to Be Your Own Best Friend" should be a rewarding self -help exercise. Like all such works, one cannot read it like a novel, to be quickly put aside and hope to gain any benefit. Instead, it should be perused slowly with notes taken of "high points" encountered along the way. The reader must then periodically glance back at the notes. "How to Be" is big on letting go of the past, especially memories of "troublesome" parents. Two of the more helpful aphorisms are "There is no way now to even the score" and "Go forward for happiness-not back". The title may be misleading since "How to" actually calls for some self-discipline as opposed to patting oneself on the back or licking one's wounds: WE are responsible for own good times in life and to "watch and work". WE must remove the roadblocks that others (i.e.": PARENTS) have placed in our paths. This is a solid piece of psycho writing, with no downside risk. At paperback prices, one good idea will pay for itself many times over. This may also be the fastest reading paperback I've ever encountered. Those scrolling through the self-help selections should seriously consider "How to". For those of us with "parent problems" (we know who we are!), this one is strongly recommended.
