    There are some good exercises in the book, but it's important to know that the entire program is based on ACT ( Acceptance and Commitment Theory). This may be fine for some folk but not so helpful to others. A prospective user should learn about ACT before buying he book.
    Personally, I found the clinical examples annoying. There are three cases described and refered to throughout the book. I found this to be extremely annoying because none of them gave me insight into my situation. I found these examples to be more of a hinderance than a help. What value I got from the book was from skipping the long clinical discussions and reading the parts immedaiately before each exercise.
