Most of the book is filled with short narratives that are supposed to illustrate a point, but they're contrived and repetitive with little supporting material. She mentions EEGs and other brain imaging techniques that have allowed us to 'see' into how the mind works, but doesn't talk about how that connects to her suggestions and there's very little in the way of science mentioned at all.
There's a lot of material on why she believes adults have emotional issues stemming from our attachment issues as infants to our mothers, but doesn't mention at all how she knows about this connection. No study citations that I noticed, and certainly no explanations of how she came to that conclusion.
This is little more than a self-help book filled with contrived examples and a lot of obvious advice. There's even an exercise suggested that more or less amounts to meditation and promises to change you as a person with absolutely no explanation of why it would work. What little insightful information is in this book has been hopelessly diluted. Not a scientific or intellectually stimulating read at all.
