WAS THIS CHAPTER BANNED IN BOSTON?

The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.


Banning in Boston does seem remote, given modern Boston and this chapter's lack of sexual content. Nevertheless, there are many powerful interest groups who might prefer that you skipped this chapter: politicians, doctors, lawyers, insurance companies, the cultural elite, clergy, hospitals, funeral directors, also many organizations that are politically and socially correct. Why? All the above organizational groups might lose money and power if many of us changed in ways suggested by this chapter. The results of much improved happiness and autonomy for each of us (black, white, straight, gay, male or female) might not be appreciated by the above interest groups!


Many politicians, doctors, lawyers and politically-correct groups would prefer that you NOT read this chapter.

As noted above, this chapter has the potential for more resulting happiness from less effort than any other chapter in this book. Wouldn't you like to gain some serenity about things like severe trauma, debilitating injuries and death? Wouldn't you prefer to be less concerned with materialistic worries? Wouldn't you prefer to feel safe, rather than terrorized?
