“There are two big strengths to the book. The first is the audio sessions which will give people a chance to experience and work with exercises while hearing Carol’s voice. . . . They can listen and experience a change in their symptoms and later do the exercises on their own. The second strength is the way the book helps readers make connections between their symptoms and behaviors in a way that is simultaneously non-threatening and empowering. . . . giving people hope and then showing them a way out of the pain.” — Ryan Nagy
