Risking Being Alive is a collection of ideas, experiments and readings which introduce psychological tools that can be used to increase the sharpness with which you see and relate to the world. Used properly they will enable you to enrich your life and become master of your fate. Regarded as one of the best books ever written on Gestalt Therapy, the reader is challenged to face his responsibilities in a practical and pro-active manner. Too many books today are too idealistic in their approach to life but certainly this one is not. The experiments are simply explained and easy to relate to. Risking Being Alive is user-friendly with no quick fix here, or false promises, but certainly the effort put in will produce the desired outcomes.
