Other therapists say:
“An excellent book that doesn’t take long to read, but could change your life.”
Tom Butler-Bowdon, author of Never Too Late To Be Great: The Power of Thinking Long.
“This little book packs a lot into a short space and is pitched just right for many therapy clients or other individuals who want to tackle problems of self-acceptance. I highly recommend it.”
Donald Robertson, author of, The Philosophy of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT): Stoic Philosophy as Rational and Cognitive Psychotherapy.
“This book is short but comprehensive. It can be used as a self-help manual or as a reminder to therapists of just how straightforward and uncomplicated therapy can be when self- acceptance is the central theme.”
Gloria May, Hypnotherapist, reviewed in INTEGRITY – Journal of the National Council of Psychotherapists.
“Michael is the master at paring away everything superfluous. I’ve had several copies but keep giving them to clients, nearly all of whom find it clear and very helpful. Yes we all ‘know’ this stuff but Michael gets it down to practical knowledge… and it works. Just wish that all therapy and self-help books were this simple and clear.”
Mark Davis Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist
What I like about this book is that it held my attention easily. As a book, it is accepting of the human condition. Self-help doesn’t need loads of theory and hundreds of exercises. The book accepts itself for what it is, keeping things simple. The range of advice and exercises Cohen provides is both plenty and not too much. There is variety here that allows you to practice and develop tools for relaxation, for self-awareness, for new ways of thinking and for new routines. The exercises all complement each other, and they all stand-alone too. This book is a good introduction to what therapy really is about. Modern therapy is not about `being analysed’, but about training us in self-analysis. Once we know what we are doing, we can change it. A contradiction? Not if what we need to change is our belief that we need to change.
A super little book that demystifies modern therapy and presents an easy programme of change for the reader.

I found this book extremely helpful as it describes my occasional irrational thought patterns to a tee. The good sense and exercises contained in the book have just helped me get through a difficult episode. I know that I am likely to falter in the future though also realise that I am not defined by my mistakes or perceived limitations. And I now have this book to remind me when I forget.
Paul John Gething
This is an absolutely amazing book. From the moment I started to read it I just could not put it down.What Michael has written just confirms my beliefs and I have already been leading my life as he suggests for many years.
Michael Cohen has a true insight to human nature and with his clever intellect has put across all the knowledge he has acquired into a “Masterpiece” of written art that I have never come across before.
Thank you Michael you have my ACCOLADE. Read Michael’s book if you want TRUE HAPPINESS in your life and never look back!!
Michael Cohen’s “The Power of Accepting Yourself” is among the most practical and beneficial self-help books I’ve ever studied. It is admirably unique in that the author goes to extraordinary lengths to write clearly and simply. Cohen also writes in a lighthearted and entertaining way. There is nothing boring or dry in the entire book. I actually enjoyed learning about my own psychological maladies. I don’t usually enjoy self-examination, but I definitely did this time, with this book, probably because I experienced an immediate benefit from implementing Michael Cohen’s suggestions. I have never met Michael Cohen, but I felt that he knew me well.
