I bought this book at a library sale some years ago and read in 2005. However, the content of it stuck with me long after I closed the cover and put it back on the shelf.
I love reading psychology books and books about our minds and how they work and why. This book may be an old one, but it looks at how we are presented with difficult situations, we react in unusual ways; but they are always the same ways each time. This book taught me that to let love in from others, I had to let go of the fear I've had in my past. This takes time and work. Even though this book was written in 1979, its content is still relevent today and it all still works in today's world of instant and quick fixes. Everything takes time to be fixed; and that's what we need to use.
On other sites, I've read that people have called this book a bible, a source of strength and their rock in hard times; and I must agree with them. If you read any book in your life, make it this one.
Dr Gerald G Jampolsky, MD is a hard man to track down and thus there isn't much about him on the net. However, there's a huge list of books you can look up by him on Librarything.com and Goodreads.com as well as Amazon.com too. So, what are you guys waiting for? Go and have a read of this man's fantastic books.
