Book Review - The Swiss Cheese Theory of Life!

The Swiss Cheese Theory of Life! by Judith A. Belmont, MS and Lora Shor, MSW is a great read. I love the approach these amazing women take in their analysis of how to get through life's holes without getting stuck in them. Throughout the book, they cut up life into ten delicious slices that help you make important changes in your way of thinking and dealing with every day stressors and more. The comparison to swiss cheese is a wonderful aid to keep their advice and insight in your mind. There are some activities within the book that help you take a good look and move on to better days. Being resilient is a characteristic we all have and this book is a super set of directions on how to reach inside yourself and bring it out.
This book would be a great graduation gift for a high school or college graduate! A newly married couple could use this as a guide to navigating through the challenges of settling into life together. That just divorced friend or just widowed friend would find much comfort and motivation in these pages. Lose your job or even your house? Got New Year's resolutions to make a better life this year? This book certainly has ideas that anyone can take to heart. Let the Swiss Wiz and the Swiss Cheese Fairy of Life guide you past the Stinky Cheese. I loved this book!
Disclosure: I received this book at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
