Editorial Reviews

"O’Meara’s foray into the self-help genre is stimulating despite occasionally being overly vague about process. O’Meara begins by detailing his own struggles with letting go, which led him to make a New Year’s resolution to “experience more joy.” He’s overly brief with how the process occurred in his own life and never defines what he experienced emotionally after a series of setbacks, including a neck injury. Much of what’s here will be familiar to anyone who’s ever picked up a self-help book, but O’Meara’s tone is admirably sincere. He attempts to cover a lot of bases, including depression, abuse, memory, shame, and emotional masks. Maybe the most important sections come when O’Meara criticizes the concept (which he cites as common among assertiveness coaches) that no one can make you feel what you don’t want to feel, and runs down the flaws and benefits of positive thinking. A concluding section offers a list of suggestions for how to continue to heal and grow. For some readers the book might be too optimistic, but there’s something to pick and choose and learn from for everyone. (BookLife) ” – Publishers Weekly"In spite of life's hardships, Mark has indeed found solutions to the frequently asked questions regarding lifes' suffering.  Let Go Heal Be Happy is a sincere personal account of  transformation. Mark gives a clear account of the process of letting go of old pain and transitioning into a life of new beginnings. Quotes by wise spiritual leaders throughout the ages give the book substance, offering true guidance to those that choose to take this journey of deep and permanent transcendence. Hope and gentle encouragement are the message of this book. The reader finds strength to pursue the inner work through the wisdom of first hand experience that Mark shares so generously."  - Helani Davison, Author of Daughter of Chaos"Breakthrough healing is possible and this book shows you how!" - Mark Victor Hansen, co-creator, Chicken Soup for the Soul.
