Living Life From the Inside Out: Who You Are Matters by Edward A. Dreyfus, PhD, is an excellent choice for anyone who desires to focus on the important aspects of life. Dr. Dreyfus, a clinical psychologist for over 40 years, shares his experienced perspective throughout the book. While our society defines success in terms of career, money, property, etc., the author contends that success can be defined as living a conscious life with integrity. Dr. Dreyfus illustrates how a fulfilled life is achieved when our core values are congruent with our actions. Additionally, other essential aspects in living a balanced life, such as beliefs, forgiveness, courage, commitment, and love, are also examined. The chapter, The Story We Tell, explains how each of us develops a narrative about our lives. This narrative may be based on distorted memories and may be misinterpreted - an interesting perspective.
Although the knowledge in this book has some basis in psychological theories, it is presented in a comprehensible manner. Edward A. Dreyfus' well-developed presentation in Living Life from the Inside Out: Who You Are Matters can be understood by all readers. Dr. Dreyfus' writing style is clear and down-to-earth. The addition of personal vignettes illustrates his concepts well. Likewise, several practical, step-by-step exercises will assist one on the journey to conscious living. Although a few sections may seem basic or simplistic to some, there is powerful and eloquent wisdom within each one. Combine this wisdom with practical solutions, and a truly balanced and satisfying life can be achieved. This book is a true gem!

The book does not delve into the realm of more serious mental disorders, nor does he discuss recent theories and treatments that have galvanzized the mental health community (i.e., "attachment theory", "neuro-psychological theories", etc.) Doing that might be enlightening to some readers but might also make it less accessible and readable to others. This is a straight talking, non-elitist conversation between an experienced clinician who speaks from the heart (and from his own professional and personal experiences)and his intelligent and hopeful readership. We can all learn something from this book...how and why we live the way we do, why we get stuck at times, how we might change ourselves and our life views and how we just might find more fulfilling paths to living more peaceful, mindful and joyous lives. Lots of food for thought and discussion. Definitely worth reading.
