Taming_gremlin This was the first book I purchased when I was first in The Priory after my diagnosis. It became my bible and constant companion throughout the 5 weeks I was at The Priory. I would take it with me every time I went 'off-site' to go to Costa's and would sit in the sun reading this book.

I liked it so much that I even thought about re-printing it in a more portable format, more pocket friendly. Still might...

It is a surprisingly simple concept, hence the title. By giving out
worst character traits an identity, banishing the less than ideal
personality files became a little easier and because of the 'gremlin'
concept, it allows for a 'humorous' angle that many other books don't
even come close to. It's a thin book and will not take long to read but
it's a book I still look to in moments of 'forgotten my therapy'

I do highly recommend this book, if like me, you are looking for some extra help, but don't care the casual approach.

I liked it so much I ended up buying this as presents for people in my
life that I felt could benifit from a Gremlin makeover. It's not about
depression, it's not just another self-help book, it's for all people,
depressed or not, extravert or introvert. We all have Gremlins, just
they all look different and have different names.

Rick Carson has a huge and loyal following in America, just visit the website and you will see how serious Gremlin Taming is.


Through the metaphor of the gremlin, presented
imaginatively in writing and in artwork by Novie Rogers, the author
demonstrates ways to indentify and banish the tenacious, self-defeating
aspects of personality.
