Going Nowhere Fast: Step Off Life's Treadmills and Find Peace of Mind

Melvyn Kinder, Author, Melvin Kinder, Author Prentice Hall $19.95 (278p) ISBN 978-0-13-358995-5
The old-fashioned premise that happiness lies in peace of mind rather than material satisfactions is the basis for this excellent self-help book addressed to disillusioned high achievers caught on the treadmill of financial and social success. Including his own case among those cited, psychologist Kinder, who co-authored Smart Women, Foolish Choices , demonstrates how outwardly enviable lives are achieved through enormous effort and often at the expense of personal relationships and other kinds of growth and fulfillment. In clear, direct fashion, he suggests how to get off the treadmill and attain positive self-acceptance. ``Stop improving yourself,'' he urges, ``and start living.'' 100,000 first printing; $75,000 ad/promo; Psychotherapy Book Club selection; author tour.
