The whole book rang false. Author goes for titillating but claims she isnt. Even her story about addiction to romance novels seems bogus. Her voicing of the man with the sex addiction is offensive
I am just over an hour into this and I want my money back. This is entirely anecdotal and biased. The author is offensive and lacks critical thinking skills. Her conclusions are at the very least flawed and at worst, harmful to those she counsels. The "evidence" she tries to tie to her thoughts in an ignorant attempt at reasoning would be funny if not so very lacking, weak, and insulting. She implies that reading romance novels is a slippery slope to engineering self mastabatory machinery. Also, as I have not finished the book this may be premature, but I also got the impression she thinks there is little value to medication even when used properly in psychiatric care. If you are in the field of psychology or vaguely inclined to the scientific method, please do not waste a monthly credit, money, or time on this.
This was a wonderful book with lots of beautiful insights. For me this was a slow burn, I knew most of the science, but found myself thinking about this book all the time, generating new insights that came from the fusion of science, clinic, and her own life.
Must listen!!! brings you back to core values and realization how addicted we are to everyTHING!
Loved the voice too!!!
This book goes against the grain many things we are being told makes us happy. It is not too short or too long and well written. What strikes me most ist how genuine the author is and that I could connect to her feelings and her message easily. I really want to reread Jonathan Haidts book about Happiness again and see how the ideas connect. A surprizingly good read and I am glad to have discovered the author on the Modern Wisdom Podcast.
