Judgment Detox (Book Review)

Judgment Detox: Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living A Better LifeJudgment Detox: Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living A Better Life by Gabrielle Bernstein

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I’ve read from this author, and I enjoyed it. The title grabbed my attention, so I instantly set my own expectations for the content. There is a lot of great advice that can apply to anyone as long as the reader heeds the warning not to judge the spiritual perspective. We all have difference religious/belief backgrounds and could easily get tripped up over the definition of God and/or Holy Spirit. If you are capable of reading the book through your belief lens, it will not pose a threat to your convictions. The point is that we all judge, and we need to discern when judgment is helping or hurting.

I’m not sure if people without any prior experience with guided meditation or a yoga practice would embrace the recommendations provided by the author. Either way, the book provides ample anecdotal evidence that we all need a judgment detox. For readers expecting anything beyond anecdotal information, this book is not for you.

Overall, I would recommend it to anyone who has already initiated their own judgment detox, even if it’s only the awareness step. People who have not taken this step may judge this book from page one and immediately discount it with the author’s introductory admission that she needs the advice as much as anyone else and that she needs to meet a book deadline. As another reviewer stated, the book gets better towards the end.
