Ever since I started my bookstgram journey in January, I wanted to get involved with book tours and review books that are coming out. I recently was accepted by Suzy into her book review group called Suzy Approved Book Tours. I was so exited to review my first book for Suzy’s Book Tour!
How many times have you made a New Year’s resolution in January, only to give up on yourself just a short time later? In Dr. Judy Ho‘s book, Stop Self Sabotage, she helps you take a look at all the different ways that you sabotage yourself. Though different assessments,tools, and therapeutic strategies, Dr. Ho helps you understand and modify your thoughts and behaviors by helping you understand the triggers that you have and gain insight into your values. In addition Dr. Ho will help you make a plan to stop the cycle of sabotage to gain a more positive future.
This is one of the first self-help books that I have read and I have to admit that I was looking forward to it. Like most people, I am one that sets numerous resolutions all through the year and then one thing or another happens. And then it is 3 months later and I still have not done anything about that resolution. I was exited to read Dr. Ho’s book and see how I can improve myself.
My first thought when I got this book is that was going to be one of those books that lightly talks about the author’s life and what she has been through that caused her to write the book. I was a little disappointed when I started reading the book , and it was more like a text book than a simple read. This was not a book that I could sit and read in just one session. It is a book that you need to take your time with and focus on one chapter at a time. There is a lot of great information provided in the book, it just takes time to read through all the information and process it. While I had a bit of a tough time reading through the book initially, because of the fact that it is written like a text book, it is definitely a book that I will read again, even more slowly than the first time, so I can really apply the skills this book teaches to my life. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to make big changes in their life and keep all those goals and resolutions that they have set for themselves!
