I read this book a long time ago and it changed my thought process completely. Coming back now I have so many more applications that have given me a better perspective so I can stop being so passive aggressive and actually allow myself to be happy. .

Excellent book with lots of good advice on becoming more peaceful inside and out. I am trying to put some of his advice to use as much as I remember since I listened the first time. It does work (at least for me) to make me feel better about myself when I stop and think before I speak or act. I feel better than I would after what normally would have probably been an impulsive action or reaction. The type of things that I might blurt out leave me feeling pretty negatively afterwards, and even embarrassed. I tend to come across as very know-it-all-ish, unpredictable, short-tempered at times, disorganized, self-centered, and fairly impulsive, I think. I've always sweated the small stuff. I've always been meticulously detailed oriented, organized, caring, compassionate, empathetic, and actually very calculating (despite what others may think! :) Most of the people I can think of on my paternal side of my family are the same way. We're generally pretty intelligent Type As with a low tolerance for frustration or what we might consider B.S. I think most of us are pretty high strung and tend to seek perfectionism in some way or another. It can make life fairly miserable at times. Instead I'm really trying to not be so.. well.. like I seem to be the past few years. As I get older, the more pronounced these traits have become. I hope it continues to help me calm the inner storms and to make me a little more pleasant to be around. I definitely recommend it. Rest in Peace, Dr. Carlson. :-) Thank you!
