Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is an important book. Following its advice can free readers from the chains of self-criticism and replace them with the wings of self-encouragement.”

From the Inside Flap

The relentless pursuit of high self-esteem has become a virtual religion. Our ultracompetitive culture tells us we need to be constantly above average to feel good about ourselves, but there is always someone more attractive, successful, or intelligent than we are. And even when we do manage to grab hold of high self-esteem for a brief moment, we can't seem to keep it. Our sense of self-worth goes up and down like a Ping-Pong ball, rising and falling in lockstep with our latest success or failure.

Fortunately, there is an alternative to self-esteem that many experts believe is a better and more effective path to happiness: self-compassion. The research of Dr. Kristin Neff and other leading psychologists indicates that people who are compassionate toward their failings and imperfections experience greater well-being than those who repeatedly judge themselves. This book powerfully demonstrates why it's so important to be self-compassionate and give yourself the same caring support you'd give to a good friend.

Using solid empirical research, personal stories, practical exercises, and humor, Dr. Neff--the world's foremost expert on self-compassion--explains how to heal destructive emotional patterns so that you can be healthier, happier, and more effective.

--Brené Brown, Ph.D., author of The Gifts of Imperfection --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
