Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"With deceptively potent visualization exercises, psychiatrist Stutz and psychotherapist Michels promote a rapid and streamlined method of self-improvement. Michels, known for his work with prominent entertainment industry clients, teaches readers to end procrastination and negativity by tapping into higher forces. Stutz, who originally developed the Tools, backtracks to explain how and why they originated. Though simple, the authors' techniques are designed to access intense intrapersonal areas. The 'Inner Authority' tool, for example, involves imagining the Jungian Shadow to reach greater self-expression. Though many of the tools are explained by addressing a creative problem, readers in any field are likely to feel empowered because of their ease of use. Easy but not shallow, the work of Michels and Stutz also has a transcendent component. The authors foresee a time when 'psychotherapy... will become a spiritual endeavor'; exercises are said to work thanks to the generosity of the universe. The clear, user-friendly approach plus a belief that 'the power of higher forces is absolutely real' is a winning combination. Here is the rare self-help book that doesn't end with the self.
