    " The content wasn't bad, but I had no rapport with the author. I'd recommend Steven Hayes' "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy" or other books on ACT therapy as a more useful alternative. "

    " A bit more of a self-help style book than I had expected. Some interesting citations to some studies and research but it is dominated by the goal of fixing/attuning. Not necessarily bad just not what I was curious about ha ha. "
