Top Customer Reviews
One of the most difficult concepts the authors present is the idea of "ironic" or "paradoxical" effort. Winston and Seif lead us through a series of exercises and dialogues that illustrate the futility of most common sense responses to intrusive thoughts. Distraction, meditation, avoidance, prayer, attempted suppression - all of these responses paradoxically add more fuel to fire. Eventually we are led to understand the power of embracing the "junk channels" in our mind without fear or internal prejudice; with the sure knowledge that thought is neither impulse nor fact; with the understanding that we can't stop the woosh of First Fear but we can control Second Fear; that the search for 100% certainty is both futile and unnecessary. This book is going to help a huge number of readers.
