Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.

Israel acknowledges that he wrote this book as a way to share what he learned from studying psychology, philosophy, sociology and spirituality. As a psychotherapist, he teaches his clients how to learn to be present and embrace every moment of life. He describes how to be authentic and live at the higher end of the happiness spectrum. Meditation and yoga are two of his recommendations to accomplish that goal.

Folks in the rooms of recovery have heard that the characteristics developed in order to get their emotional and psychological needs met as children may now be hindering them. In this book, Israel discusses all the negative language children grow up hearing and how it affects self-talk and self-esteem. He offers examples of how to mitigate or reverse the results of those experiences.

He encourages readers to give up resentments. It is up to us to break the habits we developed as solutions when they no longer work.
