As someone that has failed time and again at psychotherapy and someone who has recently been studying Buddhism, I figured this was the perfect book for me to transition into a new mindset. About this, I was wrong.
When it comes to the Buddhist side of the spectrum, nothing was mentioned in this book that couldn't be found in a beginner's guide or "Buddhism for Dummies". Alongside this basic knowledge was enough psychobabble to make me put the book down for weeks at a time, uninspiring as it was. I have no doubt that Epstein has become enlightened in the ways he makes mention of, but the tactics and analysis he used do not come across clear in this book, and are not at all helpful.
