Baker & Taylor
A guide to solving problems of all kinds presents ten "solution keys" that help redefine the viewpoint of a given issue, ultimately leading to a satisfactory solution. 12,500 first printing.

Think of a problem in your life. Now solve it. That's not as crazy as it sounds, once you try the quick, supportive methods in this book by one of the developers of brief solution-oriented therapy. Best of all, Bill O'Hanlon says, you already know how! Simply "changing the viewing" or "changing the doing" of the problem using ten "solution keys" will put you back in control of your emotions and your life--even single-handedly change your relationship. Useful (sometimes bizarre) true stories show the process in action:

How thoughts of a farmhouse kept the author from committing suicide

How getting naked stopped a couple's nasty arguments

How getting up on the wrong side of bed made a woman happy (for a while, anyway)

And much more

& Taylor

Offers advice on changing one's life, shares ways to solve problems, and shows how to break out of unproductive routines
