Dr Gordon Livingston has been a psychiatrist since the 1960s, and has heard from his patients the whole spectrum of those things in life that work and that don't work - and the limitless ways in which we are capable of inflicting unhappiness on ourselves. Out of this lifetime of experience he has extracted thirty bedrock truths, amongst them 'We are what we do', 'Only bad things happen quickly', 'We are afraid of the wrong things' and 'Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid'. Gordon believes that we all have a wonderful capacity to face loss, misfortune and regret, and that it is never too late to move beyond them and find greater happiness. This profound and incisive book of collected wisdoms and deceptively simple truths will encourage and inspire you to seek and recognise the best in your life - to realise that it is never too late to find your greatest happiness, and how to go about it.

Thirty bedrock truths we all need to know about life before it's too late, from a leading US psychiatrist.
