Item Description...
In this book John Powell applies his valuable insights into self-awareness and interpersonal communication to help us develop self-esteem and improve our relationships with others. We all fear rejection. We are afraid that people will not like us if they know what we are really like, so we often assume poses to avoid being honest with them and with ourselves. Powell identifies five levels of communication and suggests that the kinds of information we disclose determine the level or depth of our relationships. Who are you? Are you "the martyr"? Are you "the body beautiful"? Are you "the clown," "the competitor," "the cynic," or one of the many other characters people portray to protect themselves? Only when we face our fears openly and honestly can we learn to like ourselves and trust that others will accept us as we really are.

Publishers Description
Only when we face our fears can we learn to like ourselves and trust that others will accept us. This extraordinary book has changed countless lives.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A rare treasure  May 5, 2008
It is rare that I will seek out a book that I have owned and read after more than 30 years. I, however, lost my original copy and wanted to keep my "John Powell" collection in tact...that and it is a book that I think should be required reading for all 1st year counseling or social work students. It is truly a gift and a worthwhile read for anyone seeking a more mature & rewarding life.
Best Self-Help Bood  Jan 12, 2008
I first read this book in 1972. It answered so many questions regarding my feelings, interations with others, and my view of life in general. I recently purchased another copy and the message holds true today as it did over 35 years ago. This is a timeless book.
One of the best I've read  Aug 5, 2007
John Powell writes in such a way that he is easy to understand. What he writes makes sense. He uses examples and research to back up his points. I would suggest this to wanting to become more self aware.
Admitted sexual child abuse  Feb 26, 2007
A settlement has been reached in connection this Roman Catholic priest accused of sexual abuse. At least six adults claimed father John Powell abused them in the late 60's and 70's. No criminal charges were filed against Powell but the priest has admitted to the abuse.
Why am I Afraid to Read This Book?  Mar 10, 2006
Father Powell's book has become a classic, and rightly so. It cogently states the reasons for truthtelling, as a means of increasing intimacy, if that is one's desire in a relationship. I read it twice, and gave it to my partner, who read it once, and then asked "Why did you give that book to me? There must be a reason." Of course there was, and it had its desired effect of opening up a discussion of previously avoided topics, which increased my understanding in several ways, and about more than just our relationship, but also my previous unsuccessful relationship.
The principal caveat about this book is its dated nature. Since it was written in 1969, it addresses "talking therapy" and mentions nothing about cognitive behavior therapy, which has proven efficacy, but did not become popularized until well after the book was written. Some things are too painful to talk about, war experiences being one common example, so his approach sometimes fails.
Overall, I would still highly recommend this book, but wish it could be updated.
