Is it possible to be truly successful as a person? Or must we, as most of us do, continue to live our lives feeling in some way trapped and oppressed, frustrated, irritable, haunted by worries and regrets, creating misery for ourselves and others?
In 'The Successful Self', leading psychologist Dorothy Rowe shows us how to live more comfortably and creatively within ourselves by achieving a fuller understanding of how we experience our existence and how we perceive the threat of its annihilation.
She demonstrates how to develop the social and personal skills we lack, retaining the uniqueness of our individuality while becoming an integral part of the life around us and learning how to value and accept ourselves.
With the originality, clarity and unfailing wisdom she has become famous for, Dorothy Rowe enables us to revolutionise our own lives and the lives of others in the process of becoming a Successful Self.
‘A very brightly written book that intriguingly makes you question something most of us discuss: do we really like ourselves? Then it goes on to help us do so’
‘Dorothy Rowe's books are so exceptional. Rowe has not just common sense but wisdom and real writing gifts. It's pleasurable to read her blend of quoted poetry, proper and powerful prose and good jokes’
‘Dr Dorothy Rowe has qualities which to my mind place her somewhere between sainthood and genius’
Dorothy Rowe was born in Australia in 1930, and worked as a teacher and child psychologist before coming to England, where she obtained her PhD at Sheffield University. From 1972 until 1986 she was head of Clinical Psychology. She is now engaged in writing, lecturing and research, and is world-renowned for her work on how we communicate and why we suffer. Her books include ‘‘Wanting Everything’, ‘‘Beyond Fear’ and ‘‘Time On Our Side’.
