This book is a marvellous introduction into the acceptment and commitment therapy. Although it is at times intellectually demanding, it is still a very good read and offers you a fairly new approach for your problems. These problems should be accepted, yet regarded from a distanced position and not be confused with one's own identity. The authors have termed this cognitive defusion (maybe this can also be called externalisation). Another important factor is the willingness to live with one's problems instead of fighting them. Because this, if I have understood the authors correctly, lays the foundation for suffering (and, to some extent, this seems to be true and wise). Haven't we all met people who live a serene and balanced life although they have experienced unusual incidents? But they accept their fate and by doing so overcome their anxieties and fears. Reading books about ACT is highly recommendable, because it is not only a new technique but something more: a paradigmatic shift from fighting towards integrating one's problems.
