Why Is This Happening To Me ... AGAIN?! book reviews
(taken from Amazon's website)
Healing you never imagined possible. When I was a therapist in private practice, I asked all of my clients to buy this book. It was the foundation of every therapeutic building block that I offered. Issues that "used to" take years (sometimes) in the recovery process, I witnessed healing an incredible rates. This book will expedite the growth of anyone who chooses "responsibility" for their own recovery. Sandra Livingston (Virginia)
This book has power to heal! This book will touch you on all levesl. Spiritual, emotional and physical. I met Michael Ryce at the workshop and he is a great teacher. His work is far superior to anything that I encounter so far, on mind/body connection. This book is a must for anybody interesting in personal growth. Petr Macel (Charleston, SC)
It works for teens! I read this book at my mother's insistence. I was having teenage relationship problems...AGAIN. Then I did a worksheet from the back of the book. It really works. The difference between what was actually happening in my world and the "reality" in my mind about that event were totally different things. Once I learned the tool for holding to love and releasing the goals I held - the anger and frustration left. To understand that I have the keys to my life and can change the events that keep reoccurring is empowering. Thank you to Dr. Ryce for writing this book and for making the tools available and to Mom for making me read it. ;-) Ryan Shaw (Bristol, TN)
Am I Richard? As I read this book I thought, "This character is me...I'm Richard!" I have often wondered why the same type of situation often appeared in my life again and again. Relationship issues, self-doubt, low self-esteem, etc, etc. Now I understand! The work presented in this book is truly life changing! I have been doing the worksheets ......this is a tool for managing your whole life. I have seen changes in the physical, mental and emotional arenas of my life. And for the first time have experienced the love and acceptance that life is suppose to be about. Thank you, michael, for writing this book and sharing the tools. Jeanette Shaw (Bristol, TN)
Awesome Read!!! I didn't know just how much I was going to be hooked by this book until I started reading it. I am a very spiritual person with much read time, prayer and meditation behind me and I felt this book gave me further insight into much more for me. It also helped me further understand reality and actuality. It is a book that you won't be able to put down. Such an enhancement to anyone's library to enhance your life.
Practical worksheets for change. Bought this as a gift for my teen-age son because he uses the title phrase often! In leafing through it, discovered the worksheets at the end of the book and started using them to journal - they DO work - especially after reading the book. Dr Ryce does simplify things to make his points; however, the book resonated loudly for me. Better yet, it resonated for my son. Other reviewers can say what they want about the stature of this book in relation to some others out there, but it was well worth the price of this book for the worksheets alone.
Fantastic! Mind-Expanding! One of the best books EVER! I don't know how to explain just how powerful this book is. I received it by "accident", as part of another's person product, and was so impressed with the book that I stayed up till 2:30 AM reading it. It is wise, practical, soul-searching, heart-warming, and empowering. I read dozens of books EVERY week, I've written a dozen books of my own, I've interviewed authors, gurus, and teachers, and I haven't seen a book THIS good in maybe 25 years. I'm not kidding. There is power in this book---and reading it can make you a powerful force in your own life. I strongly suggest you get it, read it, re-read it, and watch miracles occur in your life. --Joe Vitale, author of "Spiritual Marketing," and other books and tapes, ... (Wimberley, TX)
Somehow the repeated problems in my life are now explained. You know for four years I thought that therapy sessions were starting to make sense. Then I read this book and WHAM. I think of all the hours and money thrown towards my healing and all that was needed was this book. This book is a life opener. It has changed my life for the positive. Thank you michael ryce for making a difference in my life.
Life-Changing. Wow, Dr. Michael Ryces' book "Why Is This Happening To Me .... Again" has changed my whole perception about life, and my life. Raised in an abusive home I have struggled all my life (I am 36 now) to have peaceful and healthy relationships, that is yet to happen. Relationships have been the the most painful part of my life. There was so much anger in my home. Finally, this book gave me the insight to change my perceptions, and what I learned. The anger and fear are not a part of me, just learned and I can change that with these tools. I've always looked at Christ's life as an example, as well as, other great prophets. They were always at peace no matter what happened or what someone did. I couldn't maintain that behavior just by trying to emulate that, because I didn't understand about "our realities". I would still end up getting angry and blaming someone and then hating myself. This book precisely explains how to be at peace with yourself and the world. Wow. I can't convey how grateful I am for this wisdom. There are some relationships in my life I do not think I would ever have been able to 'let go of' if it wasn't for this book. Now, I CAN have peace in my head and in my world. This feels so good. Thank You, Dr. Michael Ryce. Cydney
I can't believe someone has made life this simple. I've never seen such a simple, yet comprehensive presentation of how life works. And the worksheets work. My whole family is using the commitment on the back of the book, and even the kids are changing and actually getting along!!! It is a believable book and I love it.
I could actually apply these ideas in my life. Exciting!! In reading this book I could see myself and that I am not the only one who feels the way I do. It was neat to see how Richard applied what Dr. Ryce taught him, I am doing some of the same things he did, and can now see a way to work out of the conflict I've been in for so long. This is how you spell relief, its working. I am doing the worksheets from the last chapter and things are changing. I've read every self help book I could find over the last ten years and this is the best one yet. James Redfield was right, I think this is going to change my life forever. Thank You Michael.
Remarkable work in relationships and taking responsibility. As a physician I was tremendously impressed with this enjoyable book. Dr. Ryce is clear and concise, breathing life into an interview between himself and "Richard", a character-synthesis of 25 years of consulting with and teaching thousands of individuals in conflict. The conflict is often developed through and in a relationship(s). Dr. Ryce shows us, through Richard, the power of our minds and the need to accept full responsibility for each and every moment in our life. We are guided on a journey of acceptance of ourselves and others and we come to the realization that every instant can be seen as a chance to learn...and grow.
Personally, the teachings in this excellent book transformed my life and I have since recommended it to hundreds of my patients/clients. I've even referred several of them to Dr. Ryce's summer seminars in the Ozark Mountains and each has come back filled with gratitude, their vision of "reality" changed forever. If you are serious about taking control of your mind and life, get this book and dive into a new and beautiful world of forgiveness and love.
