Publisher's Summary

Love is where there is no fear. Fear is where there is no love. In our age of anxieties, most of us live by complex expectations about what we should achieve, how we should act, and how others should treat us. As a result, we are victimized by guilt and fear - guilt because our standards haven't been met in the past, fear that they won't be met in the future. Inevitable, these negative emotions wreak havoc on our personal relationships, self-esteem, and peace of mind. But what if we let go of our fear and guilt? The transformation can be miraculous, says world famous psychiatrist and author Gerald G. Jampolsky. The secret lies in healthy perception of yourself. Dr. Jampolsky points the way through fourteen lessons that can change your life. These lessons show:

  • How to quiet the ego-self that creates fear and guilt.
  • How to accept genuine love and give it away.
  • How to stop judging others, thereby to stop judging yourself.
  • How to listen to your inner voice to receive support and guidance.
  • How to forgive others so that loneliness and separation become illusions of the past.
  • And much more.

Here is a book for everyone who seeks the key to life's most satisfying reward. A book that tells you how to throw off the burdens of the past, and learn what it can mean to truly love.

A bit of interesting stuff.....Terrible audio qual

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Overall not really worth it. Some good bits, a lot of nonsense.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gerald Jampolsky, M.D. and Diane Cirincione, Ph.D. ?

The Narrators weren't the problem. It must have been recorded on an Edison phonograph.

Needs the chapters labeled - where's action?

I will change my review if I can get through this book.
I am a believer that there is an action step to letting go of fear and guilt.
I would love more info on the Action Steps to get rid of it.
Telling me to "Let go of the guilt, forgive others, forgive yourself" is an excellent "Idea" in theory.
But it's not that easy.
And as I listen (all anxiety ridden, there's a reason I bought the book) I want to know if they tell me the "how" of it.
Not just the "why" of it. Honestly I'm feeling more and more pressing guilt as I listen thinking "I must be doing something wrong because I can't just let go" and to me, that is coming from a inner place of God saying "You can't just "will yourself" to forgive, you need to take action, THY WILL be done, not Mine. You know?
So I look to see if there are any chapters indicating if there are action steps and they are just numbered.
So I'll try to keep listening.

Absolutely Superb and Worth it

I was skeptical, esp the cost was oddly high.
out of despair I bought it.
What a revelation, identifying the EGO.
It uses God as a core fix but Not in a crazy religious way, but in Principle of Love as the cure.

Every 3 sentence is about God.

Every 3 sentence is about God. I had thought this was a more scientific book by a doctor

Great Book

I really like this book. I'll read it 5 or 6 more times to let the principles sink in.

Quite good insights into personal recovery

If you could sum up Goodbye to Guilt in three words, what would they be?

Profound
Spiritual
Healthy confrontation

Any additional comments?

I listened to many recovery books and this one is a very good reminder of the fact that serenity is only attainable through humility, meekness and love.

Sucked in

What would have made Goodbye to Guilt better?

Leaving God out of it.

What could Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D. and Diane V. Cirincione, Ph.D. have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

If i wanted a book including religion i would have picked that.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The medical aspects were good

Any additional comments?

Medical should never be mixed with religion.
