Von Ein Kunde am 1. August 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
The book leads you to believe that everybody is a negaholic. Even if you're not really addicted to negativity, you'll find out that you're a negaholic anyway. It also waffles on quite a bit before it actually gets to the point, i.e. how to overcome the negativity that you may not even have.
However, the examples are realistic and despite the fact that there isn't a great deal of advice there, people who are negaholics may see themselves in these examples and find that helpful. Good luck to negaholics ! If you're just a bit negative on occasional basis and suspect that you're a negaholic, don't waste your time. It's normal and you can't be classified as a negaholic but this book will tell you that you're just to get you to buy it.

Cherie Carter-Scott delivers a readable, workable solution to overcoming the negaholic within. The examples are realistic and helpful in determining one's own dilemmas or help someone else with their's. I highly recommend this book to anyone who struggles with negative thoughts, has a gloomy perspective on life, or lives with someone who has. Following her guidance can be amazingly and cheerfully life-changing.

Clearly written but sometimes contradictory advice 30. Juni 2005
Von Gagewyn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Carter-Scott defines a Negaholic as a person who sees themself in the worst light possible, not as they really are, because they have been thinking in patterns that reinforce this flawed image. The greatest strength of this book is that it was clearly written with lots of easy to understand examples. One that I found useful was the explanation that negaholics use negativity to give themselves attention. So when they mess up and freak out the freaking out acts as a reinforcement. Likewise when they do something right it is no big deal hence no reinforcement. The section on changing this pattern to start reinforcing positive actions was useful.

Many of the ways to affirm yourself are very corny. Carter-Scott at one point provides a list of affirming statements to read to yourself each morning. Taping them by your bathroom mirror and reading them to yourself each morning will leave you feeling like that Saturday Night Live sketch: "I'm good enough. I'm smart enough. And gosh darn it people like me!" Exercises in the book are useful, but corny like that.

My greatest misgiving about Negaholics is that the advice given can be contradictory. For example, a very early example tells of a woman who described her family and childhood as "wonderful", but from asking specific questions about her past Carter-Scott found that her parents were alcoholics and that one of her siblings was now in a mental asylum. Here Carter-Scott tells us not to lie to ourselves about the past and to honestly examine our childhood's to better understand ourselves now. In a later chapter Carter-Scott has an entire chapter on putting a positive spin on our pasts, including telling us that "its never to late to have a good childhood" and listing ways that we can emphasize the positive and forget the negative in our pasts. Which advice should I take?

In fact her way of dealing with negativity seems to rely heavily on rewriting our pasts. The idea is that negaholics are going to see the glass as half empty and tend to place blame on themselves. As a solution Carter-Scott tells us to find ways to view reality such that we are always right. Either way we are deluded, so be deluded in the way that makes you happy. That didn't sit well with me and Carter-Scott's support for this position didn't win me over.

In summary this book is a quick read and presents lots of examples and useful ways of analyzing yourself and situations. It does have useful strategies for thinking through things and for affirming yourself. One the other hand the advice here is sometimes contradictory. This is a book you will be able to read cover to cover but if you are hoping for consistency you will not find it here.

cheesy but effective 18. Oktober 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I seem to be addicted to self-help books, so I think I can sound off here. I really liked this book. Maybe I'm not the "everything sucks, life is terrible" type, but I get stuck in negative patterns like everyone else. Instead of preaching about symptoms and identifying the problem, this book gave me concrete ideas on how to deal with life's little kicks in the shins. The suggestions were great -- better than a book that just said "hey, you're negative, isn't that awful?" it gave you exercises to PULL YOU OUT OF YOUR PATTERNS. And that made all the difference.

Excellent Book 24. Dezember 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Negaholics - How to Overcome Negativity and Turn Your Life Around is an excellent book. This may be an opinion which is closely linked to the fact that I'm a woman and Negaholics is written in a very "touchy-feely" style by a woman. The idea is that bad experiences and/or toxic relationships in your childhood deeply affects the way you view yourself and all your relationships. Negaholics does not focus on childhood specifics, but gives some really positive techniques to try to turn your negativism around and build up your self-esteem.

Life Doesn't Have to Be So Hard 5. Januar 2006
Von Virginia Allain - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Negaholics is the answer for those focusing too much on the problems in life. It includes strategies for individuals who are too critical of themselves.
We all have times when we feel like this, even if it's not our natural pattern. It's good to have a book like this to find ways to pull yourself out of a slump before it becomes habitual or affects your relationships or job. I also recommend "You Can Be Happy No Matter What" by Richard Carlson.
