The general approach is to observe and vary various aspects of your internal voice-- the location, volume, speed, pitch, etc, plus a chapter about playing with the punctuation, alternate meanings of words and such of a habitual negative message until it either becomes positive or turns into nonsense.
I worked through most of the exercises in the book, and felt somewhat worse and figured that it was just another thing that didn't work-- but within a day or two, I found that the internal attacks were not affecting me as much-- the voice was still there, but at a lower emotional intensity. Now (a few weeks later), the voice isn't nearly as frequent either.
NLP savvy readers will recognize many of the principles in play in both the exercises themselves, and in how the examples are presented. So, this book will be useful to professionals as well as the general public.
