Code to Joy: The Four-Step Solution to Unlocking Your Natural State of Happiness by George Pratt & Peter Lambrou

[Code to Joy] will change many people’s lives for the better. Including yours. I know, because I’ve experienced it firsthand. – Larry King, from the Foreward.

Beneath the surface—undiagnosed, untreated, and often unspoken—there is a pervasive cloud of unease affecting virtually everyone. This “fog of distress” is the reason so many people feel unloved, guilty, ashamed, fearful, and unsafe. It’s the basis of addictions, sleeplessness, bad habits, conflict, and unsatisfying relationships.

Individuals from all walks of life suffer from this turmoil. But they needn’t any longer.

In CODE TO JOY: The Four-Step Solution to Unlocking Your Natural State of Happiness (HarperOne; Hardcover; April 2012), acclaimed psychologists Doctors George Pratt and Peter Lambrou show readers how to eliminate negativity and make room for happiness in their lives. Having helped thousands of clients—Super Bowl champs, Olympic medalists, Academy Award winners, and top business executives—they are now making their revolutionary process available to all.

Though traditional psychology focuses solely on the mind, Drs. Pratt and Lambrou explain how the body and mind work together in tandem—and how psychological trauma can be treated through rebalancing our body’s energy systems. The authors outline a series of exercises combining cognitive psychology with age-old disciplines such as yogic breathing and acupressure that help us to eliminate fears, anxieties, and buried emotional debris.

With over six decades of clinical experience, Drs. Pratt and Lambrou offer readers a clear-cut plan to rid themselves of negativity and rediscover their inherent happiness. With a four-step program practical enough to apply at home, yet powerful enough to transform lives, CODE TO JOY outlines a clear, effective path to discover and maintain true happiness.
