This could be an invaluable book for so many people who need help overcoming a critical voice in their head. At certain times it can be so insistent and even though we know it’s just a voice, just a mental phenomenon with no connection to “reality”, we are so used to it being given authority and dominating our minds that we lack the will and resolve to deal with it and see it for what it is. I am confident that this book will make all the difference. The author is a psychotherapist who has trained hundreds of individuals in the use of mindfulness, and interestingly the cover carries endorsements from three high-profile Buddhist teachers: Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield and Sharon Salzberg. Poor self-esteem is the bane of many people’s lives and this book puts forward six strategies that will help us loosen its grip.
