I've had the full version of this book book since 2013 and have tried to read it so many times but just couldn't get into it. I found it way too full of information and long winded in explanation and something about his writing style is really annoying. This book was perfect though. Short and concise and I finally understand what it's about. I've bought the app to practice the techniques and am really excited to finally be getting into it.

Very difficult to understand on Kindle. It is necessary to keep going back and Kindles doesnt always like that process.

An excellently illustrated guide to ACTReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 May 2017
An excellently illustrated guide to ACT,....Russ has a real and in my view an unparalleled talent for educating and communicating this model....in all his books available on Amazon. I have given this to my 15-year-old daughter - who is struggling with anxiety and other issues, - and the book is ideal for anyone who would find the illustrated style easier to absorb. All the main ideas are here. For those who are not aware Russ has available on-line ACT courses. I have only just completed one - and it was well worth it. (put "I'm Learning Act" into your search engine.

usefulReviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 August 2013
This is not like other self help books i have seen, although I am not an aficionado as I tend to be snotty about fast fixes for the psyche. However, it is based on reliable research and the techniques in it do genuinely work. It's not a book to read through, though - it is a workbook where you pause and try to practise ways of stopping tormenting yourself and getting on with life, an outcome which many people would like.The basic premise is that into each life some rain must fall and attempting Positive Thinking is only going to make things worse. Paradoxically, accepting this is the start of learning to live comfortably with rainfall.

Good introduction or refresherReviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 October 2018
I was suggested 'The Happiness Trap' by a professional and knowing my lack of attention span went for the Pocketbook as a starting place. It is really accessible and if you do the exercises is really helpful. Try it: just a read through will give benefit.
