Publishers Description What if there is a You that has never seen the light of day, has never got to say, "Hey, what about me?" What if there is a You that you have never even met and certainly never permitted to just be, without fear of judgment or condemnation? What if you live your life on the sidelines in constant fear of failing to please those who forever seem to stand in judgment of you and your life? What if you discovered that you had settled for what life has served up instead of what you really wanted and needed? What if you really think and feel things you have never allowed to come out, and certainly never acted on? What if your marriage is not at all what you really emotionally want and need, but you silently stay the course anyway, selling out your hope to be happy? What if you are allowing days to turn into weeks and weeks to turn into months and months to turn into years, all adding up to a lifetime of being what some nameless, faceless world has assigned you to be? If any of these "What ifs" are true in your life, then we need to talk, and through these pages, we will. First, I have some bad news, and I have some good news. The bad news is you are making the choices that have put you in this life circumstance; the good news is you are making the choices that have put you in this life circumstance. Now is the time to make the biggest choice of your life. Through Self Matters, I will help you do just that. -- Phil McGraw

RECOMMEND IT TO MY THERAPY CLIENTS Mar 18, 2007
This book is so well-written and easy to understand and implement that I recommend it often to even my most difficult clients. The man knows what he's talking about! Thanks, Dr. Phil for writing such a useful, inspirational book. Pamela D. Blair, Ph.D., Author, The Next Fifty Years: A Guide for Women at Midlife and Beyond
Capitalizing on his fame Mar 18, 2007
TV is the proper forum for Dr. Phil's platitudes. The self-induced strife of the show's guests are entertaining, and makes the viewer want to slap a little sense into them. Dr. Phil steps in a does just that, vicariously applying the slaps, and we feel thankful to him.
Beneath Dr. Phil's oozing earnestness and rectitude there is nothing profound, original, or particulary instructive. All the material in this book could be compressed into a few solid pages. The rest is fluff, most of the form; "When you follow my advice, you will be happy/succeed/fix your marraige/lose weight". He continues in this fashion, rarely specifically stating anything that might qualify as advice.
Robbins, Dyer, Mandido, Carnegie, et. al. have more to say and say it better.
i learned a lot! Mar 8, 2007
I truly reccommend this if you are trying to learn why thing is life are not working for you!
Great Book Mar 4, 2007
Dr. Phil is very enlightening. I watch his TV program daily and it really changes my life to be a "better person". I believe that this book is full of wisdom because it helps individuals find their "true" self, outside of the career they may have or the money they possess. Being your true self in terms of spirituality, family, love, and personalities are what matter most. I give this book an A++ because it was clearly written, including great story-telling from the author who has gone through issues of his own. This is a must read for anyone who wants to improve their lives.
Change your life from the inside out Jan 22, 2007
How we percieve and react to life is our total experiance in life. Regardless of circumstances around us our perception will dictate our attitude. Changing those perceptions will change our attitude. Now we become center stage and begin living the life we are designed for. Very difficult book if you actually do the assignments. But worth the effort. Slowly changing my life everyday and it started with this book!
