Your gremlin interprets your every experience. He has nothing good to say about you or anything you do, not to mention your dreams and aspirations. Just when you feel you've out-argued or overcome him, he changes his disguise and his strategy. Grapple with him and you become more enmeshed. What he hates is simply being noticed. That's the first step to his taming. This and many other straightforward and powerful techniques await you in Taming Your Gremlin: A Guide to Enjoying Yourself.

Customer Reviews

The cure for self-defeatism! What an empowering read... Carson shows us a way of changing the perspective with which we look at things - a way of focusing on the physiological changes that occur in us when we are stressed - and using this new-found recognition to create a barrier that sloughs off life's irritations leaving one with a core of calmness. Its a very nice place to be :) If your workplace annoys you, fellow comuters drive you nuts or your partner's snoring keeps you awake, try this technique. It works. As Carson says, don't just read it like you do other self-help books - actually follow his calls to action as you read. As you experience the peace that follows, you're fired up to read on - and it just gets better. Magic! A classic.
