David J. Lieberman, Ph. D., is a nationally recognized leader in the field of human behavior and the creator of NeuroDynamic Analysis, a revolutionary short-term therapy. He is a sought-after speaker and lecturer and a frequent guest on top national television and radio programs. His work has been translated into 10 languages. He lives in New Jersey.
Psychologist Lieberman would agree with Auntie Mame's comment that "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death." For too many of us, he insists, "There's dullness instead of intensity and numbness in place of excitement." Lieberman blames this on what he calls automatic thinking and behaviors. To help the reader become aware of such behavior, he chooses a format of 100 questions and answers. Why do you feel the need to arrive early? Why are you so hard on yourself? Why do you apologize even when it's not your fault? The author explores plausible reasons for these automatic behaviors and presents ideas for changing them. His intent in this reader-friendly discussion is to replace the reader's tiredness and apathy with fresh ideas and vitality. While the questions and answers are entertaining, specific practical behaviors are also suggested for creating more positive thinking and actions. This practical, enjoyable book should find a wide readership in self-help collections in public libraries.‘Catherine T. Charvat, John Marshall Lib., Alexandria, Va.
