Berg, a therapist with specialties in cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, could be a poster child for suffering through and rising above a host of traumatic experiences. She relays that change will only occur if one works to make it happen and describes steps to make changes: accept responsibility and take charge; act; and believe that the life one wants is possible. Berg delves into the many blocks to happiness including toxic friends, family, and relationships, and offers counteractive measures to take. Self-examination questions follow each chapter, where readers can assess their current lives and set objectives for reaching their goals.
VERDICT Berg’s upbeat tone and heartfelt advice are likely to help anyone trying to overcome negative life experiences.
