The main premise of the book is that "feelings follow actions." The author emphasizes that we cannot control feelings, so we shouldn't feel guilty about them. Instead, we should strive to understand them...but only after we simply "take action."
The rest of the book provides phenomenal insight into why this strategy works, where the insights come from, and specifically addresses how to apply these concepts to situations such as grief, troubled romantic relationships, guilt, shyness, anxiety, and a handful of other serious, yet common emotional situations.
Without knowing it, I used a few of the strategies described in this book to overcome very serious health challenges about 20 years ago. David K. Reynolds, however, has helped me: identify *why* I was able to make myself healthy, articulate my experience to share with others, and brought many more healthy life strategies to my awareness. The magic is in the simplicity of taking small, yet deliberate actions to improve ourselves and not let ourselves fall to the mercy of life's whims.
You won't regret your investment of time or money in this wonderful life tool.
I discover the following issue with the book and there was no way to report it with the Amazaon.com online system.
Missing pages: 56-57-58-59. 75-76-77-78. The web site has a return and replacement process which requires that I pay for shipping the book and no way of knowing if the replacement book will have the same problem. The vendor is Kolowalu Books.
