John T. Chirban, Author, Caroline Myss, Foreword by McGraw-Hill Companies $19.95 (268p) ISBN 978-0-07-142681-7
According to Chirban, each of us already possesses the intrinsic gifts necessary to live a fulfilling life--we just need to uncover them and find our True Selves.""Authenticity"" is a buzzword in pop psychology, but Chirban isn't a typical pop psychologist: a clinical instructor at the Cambridge Health Alliance at Harvard Medical School, he has both a Th.D. and a Ph.D. and an abiding interest in linking medicine, psychology and religion. He offers a three-part process for achieving what he calls a""true coming of age,"" in which we""find fulfillment and understand our purpose."" While this book offers questionnaires and tests to help readers achieve this goal, Chirban's is a deep process of coming to know your True Self;""opening your heart"" and developing authentic relationships with other people; and""embracing your soul,"" and developing your spiritual side. For readers willing to engage in difficult internal and spiritual work, Chirban offers a supportive and useful guide.
