    Review quote
    "Eric Maisel's "Why Smart People Hurt" is original, provocative and also reassuring. His conceptualization of mania as a thinking disorder and his treatment for this are original ideas that to my knowledge have never before been expressed. I have taken several courses from Eric and I know personally how powerful his methods are. His principles of natural psychology are, as he describes, simple and yet immensely practical and effective." --Dr. Laurie Jo Moore, MD, ABPN, FRANZCP
