Book Review: Chocolate Therapy
But instead of bringing us all down, I want to look at a book I received two birthdays back called Chocolate Therapy: Dare to Discover Your Inner Center!.
This is a pop therapy idea that the type of chocolate you like or love is a reflection of your inner mind or personality. Murray Langham uses four categories listed in three layers to pop analysis your psyche. The first layer is based on the shape and the type of chocolate you like. This primarily works for chocolates you buy by the piece from smaller shops.
The second layer is about what you add to your chocolate, what he calls the "centers" and he lists 25 of these. Let's be blunt, sometimes we don't like anything but plain doesn't seem to have an entry.
The third layer looks at behavior or what you do with the wrappers or cups such chocolate is often offered in.
So this isn't serious, not really, no book can provide us with serious mental health help only ongoing hard personal work, family and friend support, and a trained professional can help, but it is fun so check it out.
