‘The human mind does not come with an owner’s manual, but this book covers much of what you need to know. It shows how just three critical skills can be cultivated and used that will make a profound difference in your life -addressing problems like depression, anxiety, anger and low self-esteem. Simple and clear, it gives you the tools to move forward, now.’

Prof. Steven C. Hayes, co-developer of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life
