"This book could save you years of psychological struggle, yank you out of negative emotional patterns, and help propel you to a much happier, more productive life."--Martha Beck, author of Finding Your Own North Star
"An exciting alternative to the usual approach of so many self-help books. Harris explains how we can work with ourselves as we are, rather than aggressively trying to alter ourselves. I'm impressed by the simple and effective methods of ACT."--David Richo, PhD, author of How to Be an Adult in Relationships "One of the most hopeful (and helpful) messages we can take away from this book is this: we can learn to do the things that matter, even when our minds say it's not possible."--Spirituality & Health
