I have been married for almost 25 years and for almost all that time I have been controlled and abused by my husband and now … my two sons ( one adult and one almost adult).
I have been depressed, suicidal, convinced that I am a biggest looser-you name it …
I was listening to many books about detachment and had huge doubts that this approach works.Today for the first time I was able to “partially detach” from my husband’s abuse and belittling. It felt so good........
I highly recommend this book. Just keep listening - it will help .
there is absolutely nothing in the book
she is terrible
it was cheap
you get what you pay for
Do not waist your money
I bought " Dr. Lyn's" books in the past, and I returned them to Audible
I listen to this one and I have truly mixed feelings. I find very difficult to believe that this lady obtained Ph.D. in counselling, psychology or any other mental health profession. The professional vocabulary and knowledge is not there. This lady commits the basic mistakes that are described and corrected during the initial training of the mental health professionals.
I perceive this book and the rest of " Dr. Lyn" publications, as books written by someone, who underwent counselling therapy and is in a process of sorting out her problems by writing the series of self-help books. There is nothing wrong with this approach (except the fact that she presents herself as a professional).
These books are written with the great degree of naiveté; however, they are refreshing. They offer a common sense approach that appears quite sound. To "Dr.Lyn”: Ma'am, you are quite smart lady. You have a lot to offer for the average reader. Please do not stop writing.
Stop pretending that you are someone else, stop the process of self-publishing and self-recording your books, start working with a professional editor, hire the professional narrator. You have a great message to pass around. I am sure that you will be able to reach much greater audience when you come across as being an authentic person with life experience and unique techniques that you are utilizing in combating your problems and setbacks. Best luck to you.
The road to catharsis does not have to be emotionally painful
Someone recommended this book to me.
I started listen, to this audio, and I have to admit that the Dr Seuss's like approach to emotional trauma did not match my expectations.”
I was furious and seriously upset about this “silly approach to trauma.
I wanted to be able to say to the person who recommended this book - this is just one of the nonsense self-help books that is useless. Because I expected a long and very serious conversation about the book; I made myself listen to it. And… suddenly… I found myself in my home studio shaking my body and making monkey noises ( one of the exercises).
It felt great. It was so refreshingly new...and NOT emotionally painful, dreadful, and high energy consuming as the other therapies I am familiar with.
The process, of reaching the catharsis by stretching, body movements visualizations, rhymes, sometimes even nonsensical words and rhymes, is truly amazing - it simply works
the approach not only helps you to release your stored emotions but energizes you at the same time
I have not giggled like that for a long, long time ( many years).
As you can imagine, I restarted the audio book and now I am listening to this book and learning a new approach with completely different attitude.
This is a wonderful book
I am strongly puzzled by one star rating.
To whom gave this rating, did you listen to the actual book? Your post shows ignorance and incorrectly cites author’s statements. ( What did you want to achieve? Did you try to get your credit back?)
The book is short and to the point. It is worth reading even if you already have some experience.
Several years back I bought a lot of equipment that in the long run appeared to be useless. If I had a chance to read this book, I would save a lot of money and a lot of time and frustration during my “experiments” with the equipment and trying to utilize the lights in the completely wrong way.
My suggestion to beginner photographers- read this book first, then research what equipment is best for you. You always can upgrade and step up.
Also after working in the studio with only artificial lighting - i just discovered the fun of mixing natural and artificial light- it takes some time to master it, but it opens various possibility.
I strongly recommend this book
The voice of the narrator is difficult to listen
Everything should be revised
Intend to return it
It is a hands on book on irritability and anger.
I was not expecting fast results, and I was wrong.
The method presented in this book is sound, it does not call for a long debate / analysis of every instance of anger that you would encounter. It offers a shortcut instead. I was extremely skeptic about the method but i decided to give a try and follow all the instruction. I was trull surprised when i noticed that this approach really works.
it's hands on approach.
Very good narrator, his voice is vell matched for the content of the book.
