I learned a lot from the book..I can see how I can apply much of what was shared to my life. I still struggle a little with the idea of how to implement it in my life with my children. In a perfect world, I can see how wonderful it would be if everyone adopted choice theory, but that is not the case. My children are still attending schools that do not offer such thinking..I still interact daily with people who are attempting to deal with me using external control. I will be a work in progress 😊

Glasser has some great ideas, that seem most helpful for school systems that rely on punishment to control, but has little to offer a deep thinker with a basic understanding of relationships. The serenity prayer is more helpful and a shorter read (with more depth than this text). Also, he gives counseling a bad name, as he ironically tries to persuade clients to accept his world view. For someone who says he doesn’t care about right or wrong in relationships, which I can concur with, he nonetheless makes bold unsubstantiated claims and seems to have little awareness of the rich history of psychotherapy, and less awareness of his own hypocrisy.
Tremendously interesting and enlightening. Much about USA though which I couldn't relate to as I'm Irish.
I couldn't recommend this book highly enough in terms of enlightenment.
