The title of this book comes from the Zen-inspired writings of the Japanese psychiatrist Morita Masatake. As people try to suppress one feeling, such as shyness or anxiety, we only succeed in generating a thousand others. This book offers ways to overcome those neurotic impulses in more positive ways.
