So many authors of advice want to push their ideas onto you... to convince you or persuade you that theirs are the real truths. In contrast, Dr Livingston says "based on my many years in psychiatric practice, these are what I think are truths;" then it's up to the reader to consider his thoughtful and gentle advice.
There are thirty 3-5 page chapters, each a little essay and observation. Some you will like, some you will disagree with; but at the end of the book you will probably have found at least one new truth about yourself to take to heart, and in my book that's worth the price of admission.
It is better to be spent than saved
I frequently ask patients, "What are you saving yourself for?" People spend a lot of time conserving energy, usually while they wait for some event outside themselves to trigger their taking action...Passivity is the enemy of progress in therapy...I prefer to challenge people to relinquish passivity, stop waiting for answers outside themselves, mobilize their courage and determination, and try to discover what changes will bring them closer to others and to people they want to be.
We all live downstream
Most of the threats to human existence derive from the desire to bend the world to satisfy our need for rapid gratification. This, of course, is the basic philosophy of a consumer society. Look at the message conveyed by the advertising with which we are inundated. Over and over we are presented with images of people who are clearly enjoying life more than we are. They are younger, more attractive, with more friends and apparently an inexhaustible supply of leisure time. And how can we be more like them?Read more ›
I was moved by several of his short pieces in the book but in particular, his story relating to his tour of duty in Vietnam and his efforts with enemy POWS. His courage was not about facing just combat but at dealing with the much larger issues on the conduct of how the military treated prisoners. He made a moral decision that effected his career as an officer. Having faced these same kind of personal issues in Vietnam myself, I know well that there is a huge price to pay when one choses to oppose what is wrong. He showed a lot of class and stayed true to himself and his beliefs. This story shows that the author is not just a "good talker" but also a man who listens to that inner voice within; he walks his talk!
There are many interesting stories that he uses to express his view of life. The result of reading all of them is to feel much richer in spirit - for having learned something new and to realize that there are still some good people out there in the world who are trying to make it a better place.
The book would make a wonderful gift to those people you love in your life. This book has been given the highest book ratings by both The American Authors Association and The Military Writer's Society of America. I also give it my personal recommendation.
