EMDR is the fastest and most efficient evidence-based therapy available today. It has resulted in 80-90 percent recovery from PTSD in five to twelve hours and was found to be much faster than cognitive behavior therapy. EMDR is the perfect solution for people who are tired of going through long years of therapy for distress or psychological barriers, those who are considering therapy but are daunted by the long-term commitment, those who have found out that awareness, willpower, and determination are not enough for change, and those who want a deep psychological change in an extremely short period of time. As psychiatrist and professor Bessel A. van der Kolk said, “The speed at which change occurs during EMDR contradicts the traditional notion of time as essential for psychological healing.” The EMDR Revolution educates readers about a revolutionary psychotherapy called EMDR, which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. The main parts of the book include a series of case studies and each case study includes lessons that readers can apply to themselves for better understanding of oneself and human nature.

Was hoping for an overview of how emdr works. This is a collection of stories of people helped by emdr. That's helpful, but gets repetitive.
"Dreadful. Waste of money."
It was highly derogatory of every other therapy but boasted that EMDR (something I learned very little about) was the best thing since sliced bread and tried hard to convince the reader that it was THE only therapy anyone should ever have. It was case history after case history, Extremely tedious and boring.
No, they have to be better writers than this on.
Yes. it wasn't her that put me off, it was the content.
Cut the case histories down by 90% and stop bigging up your therapy TAL and running down every other form of therapy. Very unprofessional. Try using some of the space to let readers know what EMDR is in more detail and how it works, not just that it works!
I kept hoping it would get better but it got more and more disappointing. The writer seemed bent on convincing you she's the best therapist around and that everyone else, no matter what orientation they come from, is rubbish. I should have dumped the book earlier.
