Once again John has delivered a wonderful encouragement to anybody who feels any less than 100% comfortable with themselves at all times.
He embraces our humanity “warts and all“ and really does give lots and lots of information and advice and encouragement. As well as that he gives plenty of exercises to really engage with to make a difference, a big difference, to our perception of ourselves, to our own self-care, to our own relationship with ourselves. And he does this with dignity,integrity, humour, and humanity. I’m so pleased that he’s done his own narration and told his own story in a way that helps us to honour our own stories too. His message is helpful, hopeful, heartfelt, healing and, best of all, true. Thank you once again John, for helping to make the world a better place!

He’s done it again!

This is far more than a book about anger management; it’s about compassion, self compassion, empathy, understanding, integrity, and so much more. Yes, anger management is perhaps the overriding theme, but so much of John’s advice and practical exercises can be applied to much more than anger management. Once again, it gives not just information but also indispensable useful tools. It presupposes that the reader wants not just understanding, but also the wherewithal to take responsibility and to learn new patterns of behaviour to make constructive and positive change. I sort of get the impression that if it was a recipe book it would come with samples of food! Like a recipe book too, the benefit comes by following the instructions to get the ‘feeding’ and the desired results. Reading the book, and/or listening to the narration, are truly helpful,
As with his other books, John also gives a soothing half hour session of hypnotherapy/relaxation/visualisation.
I really like the sound of his voice and the way that he narrates it shows not only understanding of his subject matter but also understanding of and genuine care and concern for his listeners. This comes across too though in the, “read it yourself“ version, It’s well worth a read/listen and well worth following his exercises and making changes. Thank you John.
