Today's YOUR bonus day! I do book reviews as part of my journalistic life. My blog has been chosen to go first in a collegial publicity effort for terrific author Dr. Judith Orloff and her newest book:
Title: Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life
Author: Dr. Judith Orloff
Publisher: Harmony Books
Reviewer: Yocheved Golani
Using your gut feelings to figure out life and what you should do about it is the hallmark of Dr. Orloff’s Intuitive Healing practice. The popular psychiatrist’s newest book, Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life teaches her readers how to transform their self-sabotaging tendencies in order to become free to live, to love, to forgive and to progress.
The charm of Dr. Orloff’s works is that she is not a dull writer tossing off clichés and boring bromides. She shares poignant and sometimes humorous insights into her own world of struggling with emotional issues, letting us know that she’s as human as the rest of us. In this book she describes how she tunes in to her intuitive powers so that readers can do the same (see her videos for more examples of this). Intuition lets the author, her clients and readers better grasp what distresses or de-stresses them and what they ought to do to improve the quality of their lives.
Dr. Orloff’s prose is simple to understand, clearly presented in manageable chunks of information and practice instructions. When she explains how to “Reprogram the Biology of Jealousy” on pages 309-314, readers gain high impact insight and Action Step instructions for defeating some high stakes drama. The author explains that “Jealousy and envy are endemic to high school, a Petri dish for these emotional microbes.” In a few paragraphs she demonstrates how to bolster self esteem and optimize human biology for bypassing present or long-ago sadness that can last a lifetime.
The delightful achievements that Orloff and her clientele make by using the very advice she gives to her readers bring smiles to many faces reading her books. In Emotional Freedom, she’ll have you grinning in Seven Transformational Steps that can have you facing fear and building courage, facing frustration/disappointment and building patience, facing loneliness and building connections, and more.
The paperback was released in March 2009. Buy a copy for your personal and business library. It’s that good. And be sure to visit Dr. Orloff's site.
