Dr. William Glasser offers a new psychology that, if practiced, could reverse our widespread inability to get along with one another, an inability that is the source of almost all unhappiness.

For progress in human relationships, he explains that we must give up the punishing, relationship–destroying external control psychology. For example, if you are in an unhappy relationship right now, he proposes that one or both of you could be using external control psychology on the other. He goes further. And suggests that misery is always related to a current unsatisfying relationship. Contrary to what you may believe, your troubles are always now, never in the past. No one can change what happened yesterday.

William Glasser, M.D., is a world-renowned psychiatrist who lectures widely. His numerous books have sold 1.7 million copies, and he has trained thousands of counselors in his Choice Theory and Reality Therapy approaches. He is also the president of the William Glasser Institute in Los Angeles.

From Our Editors

This book offers a revolutionary approach to the family, workplace, classroom and the profession of psychology. It argues that traditional psychology damages human relationships, using true examples to illustrate that we are all selfishly motivated and therefore can only control our own behaviour. Dr. William Glasser explains a new approach that brings people together in order to achieve progress. Choice Theory: Redefining Your Personal Freedom represents the culmination of his pioneer work over the last 20 years.

Editorial Reviews

"A few weeks after I received this book, I showed it to my television audience and said, 'This is a fabulous book.' I was impressed with its clarity, its many examples, and how we can all use it to improve our marriages, get along better with our families, and persuade our children to do well in school. Choice theory, as Dr. Glasser explains it, is a new psychology of health and joy." (Dr. Robert H. Schuller, Founding Pastor, Crystal Cathedral Ministries)
