9780006384229: Dorothy Rowe's Guide to Life

A superb distillation of the wisdom of one of Britain’s most admired writers on the human condition, which gives insights and comfort on some of the most difficult aspects of life-including: identity and self-esteem, fear, depression and unhappiness, coping with people, power, agreed, guilt and selfishness and getting older.

From the Back Cover:

The central theme of all Dorothy Rowe's work is that, while the world and ourselves might seem to be solid and real, the way in which we are constituted means that we can never know reality directly, only the meanings we have created about reality.

It is when we don't understand this, when we mistakenly think that we, our life and the world are fixed, unalterable parts of reality which we have to put up with and cope with as best we can, that we find we can't handle life's problems – we make mistakes, feel trapped, and often despair.

When we do understand it, we realise that we are free to change.

Dorothy Rowe has helped tens of thousands of people reach this understanding through her books on fear, depression and unhappiness. She had shown how, by understanding our nature, we can end our suffering. Her 'Guide to Life'
is a summation of this wisdom bur with more besides, for there is no end to self-understanding. Like all her books, it is clear and compassionate, witty and wise.

About the Author:

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’.
