KIRKUS REVIEW

Two reliable psychologists (Dr. Ellis' most recent book- How To Live With A N) recommend self-analysis, not for the really disturbed, but for those with less deep-seated problems of accommodation and acceptance. While more limited than intensive therapy, it is not to be denigrated. Their guidance will enable you to know more about your emotions and their influence on your thinking, your performance; to recognize neurotic behavior and deal with influences from the past; to differentiate between rationalizing- and being rational; to qualify your need for approval and fear of failure; to identify blame, whether of oneself or others, the ""essence of mental disturbance""; to tolerate frustration, overcome anxiety, acquire self control, and achieve self control, and achieve the title goal.... It offers intelligent counselling and is more than a popularized peptalk, and certainly books which encourage this kind of a personality probe attract a constant audience.
