Publisher's Summary

Martha Beck, the beloved columnist and lifestyle counselor from O, The Oprah Magazine, returns with a new prescription for personal fulfillment. The Joy Diet shows readers how to add ten "ingredients" to their daily routine to change the course of their lives: to find purpose, overcome obstacles, heal wounds, and build dreams. These are the ten most powerful life-enhancing behaviors Martha Beck has found in years of research and practice, clearly explained and served with poignant examples from her life design practice, her trademark good-humored wit, and straightforward instructions for incorporating them into everyday life. As Martha puts it, "the greatest thing you'll learn from actually practicing the Joy Diet is that money, love, and success... are the product of a joyful life, not the cause."

Your own therapy session in a book

This is, without a doubt, one of the best self help books that I've ever come across. Be prepared however for some intense learnings that may at first seem un-familiar, unless you have actually been to a therapist/counselor before. This is a high powered therapy session for the masses on tape. Having had formal training as a counselor at the Masters level, I consider the approach used here to be outstanding. This is not however a casual, read it on the beach type book. It requires effort to use these techniques, so if you really don't intend to actually DO anything in the way of improving yourself, then go find The Time Travelers Wife and download it. That one works on the beach.

Get this book!

I based my purchased on the previous reviews and they're right on the nose, this is a great book. Every once in a while I download a winning book I could listen to repeatedly. This is the one.
Positive, insightful and I'm excited to dive in and try the suggested ingredients of the Joy Diet.
