From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Orloff (Second Sight) offers a superbly written series of psychological strategies for maximizing positive emotions and minimizing toxic ones. A practicing psychiatrist, the author straddles the worlds of mainstream medicine and alternative healing; she regards emotions as a training ground for the soul, and views every victory over fear, anxiety, and resentment as a way to develop your spiritual muscles. As the self is the foundation for emotional freedom, the author discusses how readers can find their emotional type—intellectual, empathic, rock or gusher—and suggests how to find balance. Her tips include avoiding emotional vampires or consulting dreams, which she divides into three types: psychological (where fears and neuroses express themselves), predictive and guidance. The second half of the book tackles the most difficult life challenges: depression, loneliness, anxiety, frustration, rejection, grief, envy and bitterness. Orloff addresses each fully and frankly, using anecdotes from her own life and practice—the death of her mother, her own crippling envy. This insightful and positive book will assist anyone who is suffering in mapping a path out of pain. (Mar.)

Dr. Orloff's soulful labor of love, "Emotional Freedom" literally saved my life. It is because of her journey, her compassion, love and courage that I am daring to take a small step of faith and live. Dr. Orloff's words are so engaging and helpful. Each section is full of practical steps that you can take right away. She patiently guides you through a path as she thoroughly and clearly explains emotions and the impact they have over our lives.
I was told that when I was a child I was afraid to step through the door to my kindergarten class. Every day a different child was assigned the task of grabbing my hand and pulling me through the doorway. Nearly fifty-four years later, I am learning much about fear and courage. Recently, I was on the verge of opening a door leading to certain death. But I thank the Universe that I discovered Dr. Orloff's book. Today, a new door, a very special sacred door lies open for me. A new path to something better, a path of healing and hope. I am daring to step through this door and this time no one has to pull me through for I have found courage. Dr. Orloff has certainly rescued me from complete destruction and I am forever grateful!
After I finished reading the book I realized I wanted to read more. All I could think was there should be a sequel as I was sad to be finished with it. Immediately I picked up Orloff's book Positive Energy...I was hooked.
After discovering Judith Orloff M.D. I realized I was an intuitive empathy and it brought me back to my roots as a writer and artist. As a former law enforcement officer who retired after being assaulted on duty, I began to understand why it took years for me to get over being victimized and the aftermath of it all. Most importantly I realized that I wasn't crazy.
My life has changed tremendously for the positive and I have Judith Orloff M.D. to thank for a large part of that. I live at the Jersey Shore and even though I lost most of my belongings during Hurricane Sandy last year I was able to get through the loss because of what I learned from Judith Orloff M.D. Amazingly her books Positive Energy and Emotional Freedom (my second bible) were the only two books I owned to survive the flood...positive energy creates positive results! Thank you Dr. Orloff!
