I am soo glad a friend of mine recommended this book. I'm a bit tentative to pick up anything that might be considered self-helpy and this is not your typcial "how to feel better" book. It's easy to read, very engaging and most of all extremely helpful. It's a holistic approach to handling every day stress as well as life changing events. Even if you don't want to "do" the program, it's useful to just get some pointers. It felt good to know that I don't have to feel the way I'm feeling and can change.
