   User-friendly and easy read, but with such insight into the psychology ...
The book is easy to read and has insight into the psychology of human suffering. I recommend this to everyone I know.
   Great Book/Self Help Aide
It all out in pictures and brief description. It was more beneficial to me than it was to the person I bought it for. One can't be helped unless they are willing to be open, humble, and self-reflective.
   This is funny and touches the heart of those of us who ...
It touches the heart of those of us who experience constant negative internal chatter that depletes our energy. This is the first book I've read that says pursuing happiness is a cause of unhappiness. I've used many of the exercises and suggestions to improve my practice of meditation. Each book helps me in a different way.
   ... to a friend in prison to whom it was recommended reading for addictive behaviors
I sent this to a friend in prison who was interested in reading about addictive behaviors. For the first time someone has explained why we have crazy thoughts and how to manage them. It's helpful for people who suffer from depression or feel like a failure. Everything will be a perfect book and not a think happy one. Quite different. It teaches you that it is not normal to be happy every day. Learned a lot.
   Pleasantly surprised
When I ordered the illustrated version, I thought it would have a good amount of text along with comics or images to break up the concepts. I almost returned it when I realized that it is all illustrated. I started reading it after giving it a try. This is a book that I love. The language is understandable and not so psycho-babble, it is quirky and a bit charming. I recommend it to anyone who is struggling with depression, anxiety, or who believes that CBT is the only way to change their life. Ps. I will use excerpts of this book with my clients as well.
   Concise & Effective Summary on Acceptance & Commitment/mindfullness
Over the last 6 months, I have had physical issues. I think mindfullness is very valuable. I would have found this book at the start of my journey. The book is concise, visual and effective in communicatingAcceptance and Commitment therapy. It's similar to reading an executive summary.
   Perfect for Avoiding Dense Reading
This book is great for someone who wants to read a lot in a short period of time. Information is presented in a way that is understandable. I don't feel like I am opting for the comic section. This book is a great introduction to the principles of the act. It is a great option to start conversations in a non-therapy setting. I use it at the recommendation of my therapist, and we use it for discussion and work.
   Keeps attention but lacks details
Great for people with shorter attention spans. I didn't feel like I got the detailed explanations I was looking for. I understood what the book was teaching by the end, but I didn't understand it at first because it was simplified.
   Highly recommend! Life saver
Although I won't be reading the whole book, I will be reading a few pages and this illustrated version of the book is a great idea for people who don't read a lot. It's recommended for people who are struggling with happiness in their lives or trying to find who they are.
   Quick ACT guide
A good self help book for people that don't like self-help books. The exercises are easy to complete and still get the point across. It can be a quick guide for practitioners.
