What I Liked
I really appreciated Bishop’s straight-forward tone. Although he may be a bit rough around the edges, I very much agreed with his entire assessment of human behavior and how to make immense changes in a short amount of time. Bishop cites credible research and major players in the psychology field as well.
What I Wished was Different
I think the title throws a lot of people off. I find myself wanting to recommmend this book to almost every client and individual I know, but I feel I have to give a disclaimer due to the title.
Overall, I found this book to be an amazing and insightful read. I found his conceptualization to be straight-forward, clear, and direct. If someone is truly lost and looking for direction, I feel that person would feel confident that reading this book was going to help them. For Self-Help, that is HUGE.
I do think if one is easy offended or prefers things to be told to them in more of a sugar-coated, soft tone…this book may not be a good fit for you.
