From Library Journal
Kaufman, director of the Option Institute and author of A Land Beyond Tears ( LJ 4/1/82), contends that if you change a belief or attitude you can change your life. A decision to pursue happiness, he claims, can improve relations with others: "We can engineer our own responses, choosing love over hate, peace over conflict and happiness over depression." The first five sections relate Kaufman's philosophy and offer stories of clients' successful changes while in therapy. Section six has short chapters detailing shortcuts to happiness. The book has a four-page bibliography and two pages of additional readings. A cut above most self-help books; recommended.

More loving, accepting, kind and joyful!
I got this book and did not stop reading until i have read it all. I was searching for information how to understand autism and how did they get rid of it. Instead i turned
my primary search into ease and unnecessary wording. I received the gift of much more than expected. The gift of understanding the difference and of understanding myself. If possible and i know how to and Bears is ok with that i will vote to classify Bears philosophy and his work towards HEALING US from OUR
INCOMPETENT attitude towards our DIFFERENCES for the NOBLE PRICE
at least so more people can change and experience healing within themselves.
