Riding the Dragon great read for caregivers May 8, 2008
This is a wonderful book & important for those in helping professions. All of us who work in helping fields should learn to understand more about caregiving & how to help others while preserving our own health & wellness.
Very good book May 13, 2006
I read this book during a book study class at my church. It provided a lot of insight that really spoke to me. I had always thought I could handle stress by control or sheer will. Now I jump on the dragon and enjoy the ride. Life will happen, it is up to us to decide whether it happens with us or in spite of us! God bless you all.
I needed this Apr 23, 2006
I read this last year and several others by Dr. Wicks. It helps me to know that I am not the only one going through these things. I try to help people and then forget to take care of myself. This book shows us how we can live both sides of the coin best.
