About the book:

If all pop psychologyself-help books were as sprightly and insightful as this, they would corner the market. Psychiatrist Skynner and humorist Cleese of Monty Python fame . . . expand the idea of the healthy individual raised in a healthy family becoming a contributor to a healthy society. Particularly relevant is their astute analysis of our societys attitudes toward directness, money, celebrity, and winning. The authors go on to discuss values, religion, death, and change, all with an ingratiating lack of dogmatism. Publishers Weekly
