Publisher's Weekly Review

For those reeling from the mental pain of events such as last September's terrorist attacks, popular psychologist Lee Jampolsky offers Healing Together: How to Bring Peace into Your Life and the World. Although the book will be published on September 11, it doesn't deal exclusively with overcoming that event. He divides his book into three parts: the first explains what to do when tragedy enters your life; the second gives step-by-step guidelines for personal and global healing; and the third presents suggestions for moving forward after tragedy strikes. In addition to this book, Jampolsky has written about "peace psychology" in his previous works, including The Art of Trust. Agent, Barbara Neighbors Deal. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
