  From a therapist's viewpoint, this book offers an extraordinary guide to lateral thinking and is a treasure trove of ideas for the reader.

My only critique is that this book seems to be a collection of essays and so develops a little unevenly for the reader. But then, several of
the topics could probably be expanded to become books in their own right!

For example, in the area of addictions, Silvia Hartmann certainly has excellent insight and experience to offer. She is sensitive to the
critical nature of the entry process to treatment and her Guiding Star protocols are strongly evocative of the 12-Step approach. She will ring many bells for those of us involved in this difficult treatment area! Her forthright statement that no other kind of therapy can effectively address the emotional, non-cognitive core issues of addiction is right on target.

In her review of EFT treatments, she illustrates the principle of tailoring the therapy closely to the client's need, as only they can express it. She calls attention to the many avenues that can be explored in Inner Child work and provides wise advice in treating bereavement as a natural process. In particular, the Summary of Opening Statements (on pages 171-172) provides a structure that will be a handy reference tool for the practicing therapist.

There is one odd omission in her review, and that would be a discussion of Patricia Carrington's concepts of "choices" and "inner resources", which have proven to be very powerful extensions to Opening Statements. Also, the "inner resources" would seem pertinent to the Guiding Star protocols.

But again, there is so much material that could amplified in this book, which is why it is so thought provoking!

Finally, Dr. Hartmann concludes with a bit of a "teaser" on her new EMO Energy-in-Motion paradigm: "What do all Meridian Therapies have in common?"
Maybe, in the holistic view, we are inviting an energy exchange "discussion" between "parts" of the mind-body unity, beyond a mere two-way conversation with the therapist? What would be your guess?

If you are a therapist, you simply must read this book to stay up to date in the exciting and rapidly growing field of Meridian Therapies.
