I read this book when I was a student at Ottawa University. I was taking a class on meditation at the time.
Even though I was wasn't very knowledgeable about medical lingo, I could still understand the material in Willam Glasser's book. I am a runner and I have been for a while. I have sometimes gotten into the rhythms that Willam Glasser talks about in his book.

I sometimes get into the zone when I go for lengthy walks 6 miles. That's a lengthy walk for me anyway. William Glasser mentioned something about not being able to think about anything while you are running besides running. When I run, I have many thoughts in my head, but the longer I run, the less thoughts are running through my head. Dec 04, Dvir Oren rated it liked it.
Positive Addiction Interesting idea, I do remember times when I got addicted to positive stuff, especially exercise, either lifting weights or running. And it felt amazing. I'm still addicted to this day reading self help books ahem ahem haha. If only I could find a way to create these positive addictions in any field in life. I feel like the book didn't provide a good solution to it, but mostly just made me aware to seek positive addiction in my life.

However, though the book doesn't focus on mental illness, he makes it clear that he thinks that many mental illnesses, including depression and schizophrenia, are, deep down, a choice.
He makes some other sweeping claims, too, that aren't supported by any citation or extended argument.

I would disagree with him regarding his view that positive addiction is not usually a spiritual experience because I think that it is for Christians. What he describes as positive addiction, I feel that when I'm in the presence of God. Dec 26, Paula rated it liked it. I loved the ideas and thinking about them on my own.
