Dr. Joyce Brothers is to psychology what Dr. Benjamin Spock is to pediatrics. For decades she has been a sage, down-to-earth voice of reason to the millions who read her books and newspaper and magazine columns, and heed her advice on television and radio.
Now, in her tenth book, Positive Plus: The Practical Plan for Liking Yourself Better, Dr. Brothers takes everything she has learned over the years and shapes this tried and true advice into a guide for the nineties, the decade of moderation. The subject here is change, subtle change. Are there traits about yourself that you hate, that you would like to alter? Are you too shy, too bossy, too jealous? Do you nag too much? Do you seek perfection where mere excellence would suffice? Do you overspend to compensate for feeling underloved?
Dr. Brothers demonstrates how these and other negative personality traits can be shaped into positives. She helps readers evaluate whether change is really necessary and, if so, presents a pathway to achieving reasonable improvement.
The basis of her plan lies in making small but effective behavioral shifts in the way we respond to others and ourselves. Addressing a wide range of self-destructive tendencies, Dr. Brothers explains what is normal and what is extreme, and outlines a step-by-step method for improvement.
The key to change lies in a "Psychological Tool Kit," a collection of behavior modification techniques Dr. Brothers has found simple and effective. She encourages readers to set realistic goals, map out strategies for improvement, and reinforce positive acts. She also suggests ways to handle excessive stress and life's accidents, those events in which even the most solid improvements go astray.
Positive Plus is a commonsense, rational, relatively painless way to feel good about yourself. Quickly.
