Living the Truth: Transform Your Life Through the Power of Insight and Honesty by Keith Ablow



For anyone stuck in a bad relationship, for anyone trapped in a job that's unfulfilling, for anyone who drinks too much or uses food as a drug, for anyone whose lifelong dreams have fallen by the wayside-here's help. Renowned psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow offers surprising and effective new strategies for turning the pain of the past into the power of the future.

I really gained a great deal of insight into my own mind After hearing Dr. Keith on The Howard Stern show during the Sal and Christine bit, I picked up the book. I wasn't sure what to expect because who knows about any of these self help books, but I really found a lot in this book that was useful to me. Anyone that is going to read this book needs to approach it with the belief that they are going to have an open mind and also with a notebook to do the exercises that are prescribed in the book. I really gained a great deal of insight into my own mind by reading and using this book

I was assigned this book by a professor and was interested in giving it a try because, like everyone else, I am not perfect and figured this book could help deal with some issues that cause some of my periodic depression and anxiety.

I like the fact that the book has "worksheets" for you to document feelings/experiences/etc... associated with the content that's being discussed.

My issue is with how simplistic he makes everything. The examples are straight out of a prime-time hour long drama... Of course the big mean bully who has been arrested on assault charges is overcompensating for being made fun of for not being able to read in school. And of course the woman's relationships stem from her relationship with her father... And naturally the guy who is stuck in a miserable dead-end job's fear of branching out is deeply rooted in his father's risky financial decisions which left the family in times of uncertainty while he was growing up. Also, every story has a fairy tale ending. For instance, once the burned out worker finally realizes everything comes from his dad's poor financial decisions, he's immediately ready to open that restaurant he's been dreaming of and is wildly successful now. The problem is, this book tends to go from A-Z and skip everything in between in these examples. I think this presents the possibility of giving people a lot of false hope.

The author is very psychoanalytically focused (every issue he solves in his examples is solved by uncovering something from the past), which is fine if he is successful, but I found it to be a very one-dimensional approach and the solutions to be overly simplistic. If someone's issue is definitely caused by deep-seeded childhood memories and experiences and can be resolved by simply reading this book, understanding that, and thinking through it, great... But, there are many people out there who require a different psychological approach and a lot more than this book offers.

Makes you feel uncomfortable and challenges you to face some real demons in your life but the small steps make you feel like you are taking LEAPS! I highly recommend this readable and understandable - BUT HONEST - work. It can be a tool to totally change your life.

This is a wonderful book! If you are contemplating getting it, you should just add it to your cart now. It is a guided tour of your life and past and how it has shaped you into who you are today. Keith really wants us to focus on our pain and how we can work through it to become our best self and to live our truth. This is a must read for everyone! Really you'll want your significant other and friends to read it. It is a very therapeutic read. He prompts readers to reflect back on their childhood and adolescence and see the events that caused them pain. There are questions to ask yourself and places to answer those questions in the book. READ IT! It will be empowering if you apply the principles.

I starting reading this book thinking I was not in denial, but I wanted to see what it had to say. I did the exercises even if I didn't see the point. Well I found out although I had not blanked out any memories, I had repainted some seemingly small details that made a huge difference when I saw them for what they are. This book has helped me to start working on things that I really didn't know were a problem, and it has brought significant change into my life.

For the first time I can remember in my 38 years, I have a sense of peace and I am starting to feel comfortable in my own skin, which is something I didn't think was possible. I still have a long way to go on the road I am on, but before this book I didn't even know the road was there.

This book takes you through the steps to dig into what things have caused you pain and see them for what they are. Then it gives you the steps to overcome the limits you placed on yourself due to what you have uncovered. This is not a feel good cover up, this is the real thing that will help deep within yourself. It isn't always easy, but it is absolutely worth it.

Edit July 2012 to say: Dr. Ablow seems to have aligned himself with a political side since this book came out and that may scare some people off. I didn't want that to stop anyone from getting this book, because I really think it can help so many people. This book came out when he was politically neutral so there is nothing political in it, and it is still great at helping someone uncover what hurt them and the behaviours that are not in their own best interests.

I wrote my first review on the book about 5 years ago and after reading it I am reminded how far I have come. I really thought I was pretty much together when I picked up this book. I have an interest in Psychology, so I was reading it for that mostly. Sure I had an awful childhood, but who didn't. I had mostly sorted that out long ago. What's one little abandonment issue when you are in a good marriage? It's nothing! Well I found out I was wrong after I started working through this book! I had a lot more going on than I thought. The changes for me have been mostly internal. I let go of a lot of anger I didn't even know I had, and I did a lot of forgiving, something I was never good at. It's a process to this day, I still have issues with self esteem, that is such a complex issue for me...but I feel so much better than I did before. When you are working through Living the Truth, you have to be honest with yourself and be willing to write out past events when you were hurt by someone.

I will say it again after all these years... This is not an easy book to work through, it is not a quick fix, feel good quick, fade away fast answer. This will actually help you make your life better, it isn't going to be easy, you have to do the exercises but if you do, it will pay off.
