  • The Tools: Transform Your Problems into Courage, Confidence, and Creativity

    A groundbreaking book about personal growth that presents a uniquely effective set of five tools that bring about dynamic change. The Tools offers a solution to the biggest complaint patients have about therapy: the interminable wait for change to begin. The traditional therapeutic model sets its sights on the past, but Phil Stutz and Barry Michels employ an arsenal of techniques - "the tools" - that allow patients to use their problems as levers that access the power of the unconscious and propel them into action.

    What did you love best about The Tools?

    Made me think of the "little girl" and who she was and put her with the person I want to be now.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tools?

    Overcoming my fears and become a confident person I want to be


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, finding the complete me and learning to accept and become more confident with who I really am inside.


    Any additional comments?

    I started playing the piano again. I wish I could get my sister reading the book and listening as well, I know it would help her also.

    The relentless pursuit of high self-esteem has become a virtual religion - and a tyrannical one at that. Our ultracompetitive culture tells us we need to be constantly above average to feel good about ourselves, but there is always someone more attractive, successful, or intelligent than we are. And even when we do manage to grab hold of high self-esteem for a brief moment, we can't seem to keep it. Our sense of self-worth goes up and down like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling in lockstep with our latest success or failure.

    What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

    Great voice and love her expressions. She makes it easy to listen and learn how to take good care of yourself.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Self comforting...you can comfort yourself in such a gentle way. Helps you get the most from your day and every situation.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend everyone to listen to this book. What a better world it would be if we all have more compassion for ourselves and others.

    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.
