"A sensitive, compassionate, insightful, rational and eminently helpful guide through the maze of personal rejection and its aftermath." -- Arnold Lazarus, Ph.D.
"Dwight Webb has written a powerful
passionate personal book. It documents the journey of a man's experience through a dark period of grief and out into the light. It spoke directly to me, and will speak to any person who is in the process of befriending his feelings." -- Gay Hendrick, Ph.D.
"I believe this is a very valuable book. In this age of unstable relationships, a book like this would be of a great help to many people." -- William Glasser, M.D.
Dwight Webb's book is inspirational! His journey through grief and anger to let go and know love again is important for anyone dealing with separation and loss recovery.
I like Dwight's refreshing, humanistic, and Eastern approach of letting go of resentments and anger. It is ironic that when we most need closeness, we are not open to the healing love provides. By seeing the trap we set for ourselves by staying stuck with bitterness, recovery starts with acceptance. We learn that our lives can be healthy that there is a path to regaining our joy and developing new relationships. Just take one of Dwight's 50 ways!
I recommend this book for anyone looking to leave their pain behind and start anew!
