What the Critics Say

"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."

    Story
    "I am a clinical social worker / therapist. A/A+"

    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!

    Story
    "Narrator sounds like a robot"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I really can't imagine that anyone would be able to put up with the robotic narration. Read the print book if you can.


    What could Spencer Smith and Steven C. Hayes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    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.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Boehmer?

    Anyone !


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Get Out of Your Mind & Into Your Life?

    Didn't listen to enough of it to find out. Gave up early on due to the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be requesting a credit refund for this.
