About the book:
This is the first in a series of inspirational/motivational gift books that use inanimate objects as metaphors for enhancing the way we live. In this lighthearted look at personal problem solving patterns, "Cheaper Than Therapy: How to Keep Life's Small Problems from Becoming Big Ones" illustrates "The Lesson of the Paper Clips." Gina Greenlee uses playful images of pliant paper clips to show how choosing what seems to be the easy way out of life's small problems often results in bigger, more overwhelming ones. When paper clips hook onto each other and wind up tangled on our desks, Gina invites us to examine our interaction with these modest fragments of wire to uncover the metaphor for transforming how we live. "Cheaper Than Therapy: How to Keep Life's Small Problems from Becoming Big Ones" is a whimsical yet thought provoking handbook for everyone who wants to become more skilled at handling whatever life brings their way.
