Review

This book brings IFS to life in an exceptionally clear and captivating way. Between the evocative and fun illustrations, the living room metaphor, and the integration with Buddhism, it presents a wonderfully creative vision of the way our parts dance with each other and with us in our minds. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn about the IFS model or about their inner lives. Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D., Developer of the Internal Family Systems Therapy model. --Author of Internal Family Systems Therapy

This wonderfully illustrated guide is very helpful for lay people and all seeking to understand one's inner life, as well as a help for therapists and their clients. The illustrations touch a universal understanding of each part of our inner world and how it impacts our outer world. The explanations and vignettes that accompany the illustrations allow the reader to easily comprehend the psychology model of parts work as defined by Internal Family Systems(created by Dr. Richard Schwartz). The book allows us to deeply understand, laugh, make personal connections and give us practical tools. I loved it and keep reading it over and over. Arlene Brennan --Amazon Reviews
