Book Review :
Noting that it won the 2009 Best Personal Growth Book award, I was intrigued to have the chance to read this book. Having read so many of the personal growth books that are out there, sometimes I find myself wondering what there is left to write about, especially in less than 110 pages. I am truly grateful that Dr. Sherman did not let me down. The first thing that came to mind as I started reading was that she made me feel like she was speaking directly to me. I could totally relate to her ideas and how I could apply them to my own life, especially in areas where I find myself feeling stuck and repeating the same behavioral patterns that do not support my personal healing and growth.
Divided into two sections, Part I discusses, "How the Art of Choice Works" and Part II covers "The Art of Choice Exercises." Utilizing the tools that are provided, Dr. Sherman teaches you to become mindful of your thoughts and behaviors so that you can deal with issues by making rational choices, rather than just reacting to them based upon old patterns. Interspersed in her writings, Dr. Sherman gives examples from her own childhood, and of others that she has worked with
"Mindfulness and the Art of Choice" is a wonderful book to help you get started on your path to being able to transform you life by making mindful choices. The book is concisely written, and not overwhelming. While it will be quick to read, doing the exercises will take more time. I think that readers will find themselves excited to be able to break out of their old frustrating patterns and start making mindful rational choices.
