As a journalist who had the joy of reading this book prior to pub date, I can share with potential readers:

What would it be like to experience emotions as a daily part of human existence, rather than being at the effect of them? Imagine a life in which you are able to ride the ebb and flow without being capsized by a tidal wave of feeling. Sound too amazing to be true? Renowned psychiatrist and bestselling author, Dr. Judith Orloff invites readers to release themselves from the tyranny of pre-programmed and self perpetuated emotional states in her new book "Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself From Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life." In accessible form that includes anecdotes from her own life and those of of patients over the years, as well as exercises that the reader can use immediately, it addresses subjects such as: emotional vampires, fear, frustration, loneliness and loving-kindness.

It is a must-read for lay people and professionals alike. One of my many hats is that of a social worker in a psychiatric facility and I apply many of the principles in Emotional Freedom with my patients, to a rewarding level of success. One of my colleagues(a psychiatrist herself, as is Dr. Orloff) has also been integrating the concepts into her work.

The graphic on the front cover reminds me to flow along the golden ripples in the stream, enjoying the ride~ ~

In his inauguration speech, Obama set the tone for the the tenor of our country's emotional health using the exact principles from Judith Orloff's book EMOTIONAL FREEDOM!

President Obama told an immense throng of more than a million people standing before him: "On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord."

This book is certainly one for our times~~
