Author-Psychologist Russ Hoover draws on extensive clinical experience and scientific acumen bringing a master’s touch to a new form of treatment. In section one for instance, he defines obsessions as “intrusive morbid fixations that certified head jockey’s endlessly attempt to cure deadened to the fact obsession does not cause itself… Hence their mantra ‘Stop thinking about it so much’ is akin to jumping off a plane and exhorting the person not to fall under conditions where falling is imminent,’ adding, ‘all the while expecting those words should have some effect on preempting the person’s downward movement. Cute…’” Bridging the gap between science and humor, the narrative essays an understanding of the complex world of human feelings by operationally defining easy to comprehend associated precepts. Demand Healing: The Advanced Study of Mood and Ego Remission is intriguing for the persuasive style in which it is written providing a tour de force critique of one of the most trusted institutions. Readers should not miss it.

Quick review of the book’s contents finds the work expertly sketched in three stages each spiced up with numerous clinical illustrations guaranteed to fire up readers’ interest. In stage one, the author, a specialized master therapist, produces an exposé of inefficiencies that abound in current treatment methods; what he refers to “absurdities” and “abominations,” as a means of showing why core changes are needed. Stage two yields an accurate in-depth inspection of what occurs in the troubled mind and various heretofore unknown laws that govern that kind of reaction. Finally, stage three de-encrypts what might be called the barest requisites of mental therapy while expounding upon its systematic application. The book is comprehensive and offers high-end discussion on an important subject.

Eye opening and practical, Demand Healing is formidable and a richly layered addition to the bookshelves of those searching for a good reading whether they are in or outside the genre.
