Review quote

"With deceptively potent visualization exercises, psychiatrist Stutz and psychotherapist Michels promote a rapid and streamlined method of self-improvement. . . . The clear, user-friendly approach plus a belief that 'the power of higher forces is absolutely real' is a winning combination. Here is the rare self-help book that doesn't end with the self."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "Barry Michels and Phil Stutz are profoundly talented guides to the inner workings of the psyche. "The Tools" is breakthrough material that ignites your own capacity to transform your life."" --Marianne Williamson" "These tools are emotional game changers; they can help you work through conflicts, get happier, and feel a deep sense of purpose. As simple and practical as they are, they do nothing less than deliver you to your best and most powerful self."" - Kathy Freston, author of Quantum Wellness: A Spiritual Guide to Health and Happiness" "Every single thing I've written of any power or merit came through using the tools Barry taught me. Usually counterintuitive, sometimes dangerous, they only changed my life." "- Stephen Gaghan, Academy Award-winning writer of Traffic and writer/director of Syriana"show more
