Reviews - What do customers think about Get A Grip?
Get a Grip Jun 11, 2007
I think this is an excellent book for anyone struggling, and really desiring to address some difficult "internal" issues. Dr. Weiss's pace and process are very helpful. Even, just reflecting upon the concepts can be of benefit to the reader.
Some of the examples sound either contrived, or oversimplified, but the focus of the book is not on them, it is on the reader.
