I was simultaneously entertained and enlightened by the different scenarios/psychological problems presented by Dr Michael Bennett, and his sensible self-help answers to these problems. To prevent his book becoming too dry, it has been boosted by his daughter's humour. Laughter, after all, is a very effctive medecine. Each scenario is set out as such: an explanation of the problem or obsession someone might have and why or how this problem is being created (sometimes they are other people's problems which you may be exacerbating by your good intentional behaviour); a list of ideas or false assumptions people present to themselves to have power over or ease a particular problem; a list of wishes people express which they think might ease the problem; three examples/different scenarios of the same problem; good, positive, professional advice on how to actually deal with the problem (and often not what to do); a list of what you wish for and can't have; a list of what you can aim for and actually achieve; a list of how you can do it; and, finally, a script to tell to yourself when seized by the urges or unhappiness that have caused the problem. With the problems and solutions so logically set out, this has to be a very valuable book for anyone needing help for themselves or wanting to help others in the wisest possible way. To find a particular meltdown or concern that besets you or someone close to you, there is a clearly descriptive index. but I would suggest reading through the entire book because it is overall interesting and informative for the layperson, and you'll be the wiser for it.
