Synopses & Reviews
From time to time a book appears that holds the potential to extend our horizons - one that not only adds to what we know about ourselves but introduces a whole new body of knowledge. The Stages of Life is such a book. Step by step, it describes and explains Dr. Anderson's groundbreaking discovery of what he calls the maturational process - a template built into the human unconscious that carries within itself the overall design through which we can become psychologically mature. Anderson explains how the process of becoming mature can be choked off before its completion if it is interrupted or distorted by those around us - parents and teachers, peers and partners - who fail to understand its dynamics. The Stages of Life provides readers - both laypeople and professionals - with insight into how we become the people we are. It can open a pathway that makes real the immense potential for full maturity inherent in all of us.
