It explained my own experiences to me... and it gave me a clear idea of how to cope... And excellent, lucid science. Finally, it's beautifully written. Some of the prose is so gorgeous you want to copy it out and memorize it like poetry. This is a wise, compassionate, essential book)."

Self-Coaching: How to Heal Anxiety and Depression "(Dr. Luciani's groundbreaking approach of 'self talk' in his new book Self Coaching, has literally changed my daily life. Being insecure and moderately depressed--as I believe many of us secretly are--I had been tirelessly grasping for something to center my life and bring me back to normalcy. From the first page of the introduction I identified with Dr. Luciani, and began to understand the methods that would eventually liberate me from my anxieties. If you find yourself seeking for a sure-fire means of living the productive happy life you always dreamed of, but could never actually attain, Self Coaching is a must read. As an ancient Zen proverb says, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." For me, the first step towards liberation and bliss is the direct result of Dr. Luciani's book. I have tried numerous other self-help type books, yet none were able to speak to me on a personal level and guide me through the processes of transformation such as this book. Self Coaching is sure to change the face of personal betterment in years to come)."
