From Publishers Weekly
In a deceptively simple style, author and psychologist Lawlis (Mending the Broken Bond, The ADD Answer, etc.), best known as a consultant on TV's Dr. Phil, offers a sophisticated overview of the latest neurological research, and how it can be integrated with cognitive therapy to treat mental and emotional disorders in ways "light-years ahead of current methods." Key is the discovery of "brain plasticity," the organ's "amazing capacity for creating backup systems that can renew lost functions"; as such, the brain can be re-wired for better functioning through exercises (imaging, breathing, "thought-stopping techniques") and lifestyle changes (setting aside 30 minutes a day to relax). Lawlis maintains a useful focus on reigning in what he calls "stress storms," when overloaded brain circuits lose their capacity for "logic and rational thinking," leaving one "stuck in a mental ditch, with the engine revving and wheels spinning, but no forward movement." Including several useful tools for self-diagnosis, in-depth looks at various kinds of "storms," and a 45-day program to apply his method, this guide to de-stressing will help those willing to put some effort into mental healing.

However, I feel this book falls short. For one thing, in my view it talks a bit too much about brain wave patterns. While that can be interesting to a point, I am not sure how much it really contributes to giving the reader effective stress management tools they can use today.
There are definitely techniques you can utilize included in this book, but I also feel he tells a few too many stories of questionable value.
Definitely worth reading, but it contains too much fluff for my personal tastes. Book could have been shorter in my estimation. Would have benefited from some more concise bullet points too. Around 286 pages total, but somewhat repetitive, with few "Aha" moments. I wanted more.
I kept reading because I kept thinking he would get to practical ways to rewire the brain. The "45-day" part was a joke: a set of repetitive ideas tagged on to the end of the book - like a rushed afterthought. Several of the 45 are for couples (elementary "listening skills") and groups, and several are short, useless lists that he doesn't tell you what to do with. Then the book just ended.
Of the roughly 50 self-help books I have read throughout the years, this was the most disappointing..
Edit: I reviewed the notes I took when reading the book and I must admit there were some helpful things scattered throughout.
I bought The Basic GSR2 Bio-Feedback device with a CD and he loves it. He loves feeling normal.
Thank you Dr. Lawlis...
