Book Review :
Dr. Sherman, in practice as a relationship expert for over 20 years, has written a book to help readers create a better life for themselves. Taking excerpts of her own life and experience, she explains how to live mindfully. The book consists of two parts, the first part "How the Art of Choice Works" and the second part is "The Art of Choice Exercises." Both sections include a thorough explanation plus exercises.
Dr. Sherman stresses that experiences in the past encode our mental and physical memory. These are called core issues or "baggage." She believes the feeling attained during a negative experience remains in our being, and often the same feeling comes up in other similar situations. This in turn creates an emotional response. The experiences could be traumatic, yet on the other hand, something perceived to be very menial could also create an emotional reaction Dr. Sherman addresses how to embrace the feelings, yet react differently. She also addresses patterns caused by the situation and how to change them.
There are many books on the market that cover the same issues as Dr. Sherman, however, there isn't one that is as concise and to the point as "Mindfulness and the Art of Choice" is. She helps the reader become aware of personal issues/reactions embedded in the memory. Within a few simple exercises, we can change the feelings associated with the situation and also move away from recreating those same feelings in another situation. It may sound difficult. However, Dr. Sherman simplifies everything for us through her explanations and exercises - to a point where "Mindfulness and the Art of Choice" becomes truly a self-help book. This book is highly recommended for anyone that is considering choosing to have "the good life."
