Wow, this is a powerful read. It starts right out of the gate. The examples, research studies, strategies, and action items in this book are life altering. Many of which I have personally practiced and grown tremendously through. David does an amazing job of painting a very clear picture on what works and what does not work for building up the value in one’s life. He also backs the tips and action items with data and multiple research studies of thousands of people. This is the book to build up the best version we can be to provide the best version we can be to all those around us. A very clear and concise manual on self altering and impactful growth. I HIGHLY recommend!


This book has so many good gems about how to live better our lives and deal with emotions in a practical and positive way. The author has many examples in each chapter to illustrate the many points that he's trying to make. The book is well researched and well explained.
I enjoyed it a lot and with the way is structured I can easily go back and revisit the main points as at the end of every chapter there is a summary and food for thought.


Emotions and feelings are powerful and can become overwhelming at times. I found this book practical and filled with valuable information I can put to use immediately. The author gives simple and sound advice as well as using real life examples. Humor woven throughout keeps a smile returning regularly. I will return to this resource over and over to learn to strengthen my emotional muscles. I highly suggest you buy this book today to support the areas you may need help with.


David has done a remarkable job with this book. I have been a student of people for 40 years, the most recent decade or so as a behavioral health registered Nurse. His self disclosure added the necessary element of credibility to this book. The book is very well presented and organized so it is way to listen to and finish.
As someone who has both struggled and succeeded with conflict, this book hits the elements squarely on the mark. He provides emotional scenarios we all can relate to while also providing the insight that only comes from someone who has lived those scenarios.
For anyone wanting or needing insight into your emotions this is a MUST read.


it's a great book that brings together scientific studies with deeply personal experience. It will definitely lift you up and give you the tools to grow. Also, only the second person I've ever heard use the word reciprocity, especially how important the concept is.


Overall, this was a great listen. Here's what I liked best:
This book is narrated by the author, and his enthusiasm for the material comes through. He has good energy, and his voice is pleasant to listen too. I read this book first before listening to it. I definitely preferred the author's voice to my own.
This book has a lot of very useful lessons about how we can be better in our interactions with other people. Instead of getting angry or just thinking someone is stupid, you can use the tools in this book to 1) uncover why a person is acting the way they are and 2) be prepared to respond to a conflict. Then you can engage that person and address the conflict in a positive and constructive way. This is one of those books that we all probably need to listen to or read every so often to refresh our toolbox. I found myself thinking about situations I could have handled differently (better) in my own life as I listened to this book.
I liked how the author used real-life examples throughout the book to illustrate his points.


"Family Law is good people at their worst." There is zero doubt how Enevoldsen has seen it as a family attorney. Emotions in family court cases made otherwise considerate, smart, and caring people... into total wrecks.
It was absolutely soul-baring to hear how even in his own personal life, with a minor degree in Psychology, still found his emotions & suicidal thoughts funnel him into the barrel of a gun in his mouth.
More important, it's amazing how he got out of that deep, dark place. Enevoldsen makes the science of emotional resilience make common sense. "Emotional Embuffination" is just that. Emotions are like muscles. You must work out to get stronger. You must continously grow.
The combination of how he turned his life around & that of his clients... is awe-inspiring. Not to mention, duplicatable like a well-run exercise plan. A great read & every chapter has question prompts like a workbook.
Highly, HIGHLY recommend!
