I am a veteran NYS Certified School Psychologist and Licensed Psychologist here in New York who has been actively involved in growing the mindfulness community on Long Island for the past ten tears. My wife has been undergoing a health crisis since September - being hit by her 37th consecutive year of debilitating cluster headaches. Despite being under the care of a world-class headache specialist at Mount Sinai Medical Center here in New York since she herself was a medical student, she has found no permanent cure and this condition has dramatically altered our lives and the lives of our three daughters. During her last ER visit two weeks ago in level 10 pain, while she was sedated yet again and finally slept, I started to read Uncovering Happiness to try and draw some personal strength for myself. I finally found the time to finish it today. As a career REBT therapist trained by Albert Ellis himself, and mentored by the work of all the leaders in the CBT and mindfulness fields for the past 38 years, I can say without hesitation that your book has just soared to the top of my most-recommended reading list for my beloved patients, family members, and friends. Your style is clear, your information all-inclusive, and your personal anecdotes ring of personal truth and wisdom. Uncovering Happiness is a one-stop shopping trip for lifelong mental health! I thank you and congratulate you on sharing this treasured volume with the world:)
