The Today show's psychiatrist shows readers how to stop living half a life, break old patterns, and take control

You have a story. The one you're not even aware you're telling yourself, the one you made up as a child to explain the behavior of your parents, the lack of control over your circumstances, the one that's keeping you from becoming more confident, the story that's keeping you from the five qualities of becoming real:
Authenticity Personal Freedom True Strength Self-Acceptance Intimacy

Through revealing and intensive questionnaires, Dr. Gail Saltz helps you to finally identify self-defeating behaviors, improve your self-esteem, and escape your personal traps—the same difficult relationships, the same work problems, the same issues with family and friends—so that you can live with more freedom and control once and for all. Identify the symptoms, and you'll be able to discover—and rewrite—the story of your life.
