Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life introduces Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a new approach to psychotherapy that reevaluates our most basic assumptions about mental health, and details how ACT can help you to embrace life and everything it has to offer.

"If you're tired of standard psychological parlance and still frustrated with your quality of life, this book can be a godsend." (Martha Beck, columnist for O Magazine)
"Trying to 'change' negative thoughts through cognitive gymnastics is like trying to win a war single-handedly. Why waste a life trying the impossible? In Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life: The New Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, advocate Dr. Steven Hayes escorts the mildly depressed, angry, and anxiety prone through a new approach to handling suffering - universal human suffering caused by language's illusions. Rather than fighting off bad thoughts and feelings with internal pep talks, Hayes beautifully explains how to embrace those pessimistic and foreboding mental voices (much like welcoming home one's cranky, play-worn children), 'defuse' them with respectful attention, and commit to leading a purposeful life that includes their occasional ranting."

I love the way it's written. The author practices like he preaches. The book is written in a methodical and intriguing fashion yet, with an incredibly high possibility for reader comprehension.. Can't wait to become "willing with mine and my clients" anxiety. " really cool book!
"Narrator sounds like a robot"
I really can't imagine that anyone would be able to put up with the robotic narration. Read the print book if you can.
I don't think there is anything wrong with the book. It came highly recommended to me but due to visual problems I decided to download the audio version. It's a shame that the author's work has been let down by the narrator.
Didn't listen to enough of it to find out. Gave up early on due to the narrator.
I will be requesting a credit refund for this.
