This self-help book is based on Herb Tannen's sixteen years of therapy, workshops, and creation of art, exploring the inner pressures and distortions of bad decision-making. It is about turning negatives into positives, living in the moment, and finding a happier way of life.
From 1968 on, Tannen built his agency into one of the most successful midrange theatrical agencies in Hollywood. While his career was developing exceptionally well, his emotional life was not, resulting in two divorces and a variety of personal issues. Finally, he began therapy in his forties with the firm commitment to turn his emotional life around, allowing him to make better life decisions and be a happier person.
With all these experiences under his belt, he did learn not only how to help himself but also how to help others. That is the focus of this book.
