Helps readers locate the saboteur within themselves and to stop undercutting their potential through constant negative reinforcement so that they might lead happier and more fulfilling lives.
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.

My only disapppointment was that the expedited shpping I paid for did not meet my hopes and expectation. It still took a week to reach Tucson from California. It was a small disappointment and does not change my rating for the product or the people I purchased it from. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.
Thank you for carrying books like these for people who desperately need them, like I did. I'm on my second reading and note taking.
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.
