KIRKUS REVIEW

Not only do the authors appeal to the logic of the confirmed exercise addict (""The personality, just like the body, must strengthen all its parts to attain fitness""), but they promise psychological regeneration in only three weeks for those who follow their step-by-step program (of course, some exercise is always required for maintenance of personality tone). Whether your problem is frustration, overweight, shyness, or the ever-popular tension and anxiety, you can rate your performance in boxed squares, learn from the mistakes of others (""Connie had trouble allowing her inner self to come out in situations where she felt vulnerable""), score your own questionnaires, and generally work toward ""the four keys to psychological fitness"" (expressiveness, clarity, activity, and feeling). ""Mind jogging exercises"" are both plentiful and mind-boggling--some could even get you into trouble: ""Clearly say yes five times today."" An extended metaphor stretched too far.
