Kristin Neff, Ph.D., says that it's time to "stop beating yourself up and leave insecurity behind." Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind offers expert advice on how to limit self-criticism and offset its negative effects, enabling you to achieve your highest potential and a more contented, fulfilled life. More and more, psychologists are turning away from an emphasis on self-esteem and moving toward self-compassion in the treatment of their patients-and Dr. Neff's extraordinary book offers exercises and action plans for dealing with every emotionally debilitating struggle, be it parenting, weight loss, or any of the numerous trials of everyday living.

"Xe Sands presents this guide to developing compassion for oneself, which is augmented by a self-assessment, exercises, and additional materials available on the Internet. Neff tells of her own journey to greater compassion for herself and includes anecdotes of others to further illustrate her ideas. Narrating smoothly and sincerely, Sands puts forth the author's message with a lightness that is easy to listen to. Sands sympathetically directs listeners to examine the harshness of self-judgment to deconstruct their negative self-image as a first step to being as compassionate and kind to themselves as they would be to friends or family. Her quiet encouragement advances the message of the author. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
