I loved this book! As a student of counselling it is right up my alley, but it would be useful for anyone who is interested in how the mind works and how we can better harness it's power for good. For those interested in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) this is captivating reading... Not only can you learn directly from the originator, you will also get the back story of how and why this approach has been developed over the last 4 decades. Including the very personal connections to Steven's own life story and experience with panic disorder. And this is a practical book with lots of hands-on techniques available to build your own toolkit. A Liberated Mind is a fitting legacy for Steven Hayes who has dedicated so many years to academic research in the service of others. I highly recommend this book, and hope many more will join the ACT journey towards liberated minds, more purposeful, fulfilling and compassionate lives.
