Review by EnriqueFreeque
It'd be all too easy at first glance to mock this work based on the improbable promise of it's title and the all-too-happily grinning mug shot of its turtlenecked author, Dr. Burns, so I won't, other than to say I can see where SNL alum, Al Franken, got his "Stuart Smalley" inspiration.Nevertheless, there are good psychological exercises/question-and-answers throughout this introductory workbook designed to foster intellectual/interrelational insight and emotional growth, particularly for individuals who've struggled with feelings of low self-esteem and depression for whatever reasons. Particulary helpful in a group therapy setting as a means of providing a framework/structure for the therapeutic setting. I would recommend it for its hands-on practical value, though I think its title is a trifle disengenuous. Self-esteem, for those who've lacked it, takes years, not days to develop.
