Everyone values honest communication, yet few people possess the requisite skills. Susan Campbell provides simple yet practical awareness practices culled from her 35-year career as a relationship coach and corporate consultant that require individuals to let go” of the need to be right, safe, and certain. Such questions as In what areas of my life do I feel the need to lie, sugarcoat, or pretend?” help guide the reader toward self-realization. The ten truth skills include Letting Yourself Be Seen, Taking Back Projections, Saying No, Welcoming Feedback, Expressing Taboo Thoughts and Emotions, Revising an Earlier Statement, Holding Differences, Sharing Mixed Emotions, and Embracing the Silence of Not Knowing.

Campbell, a relationship counselor who has worked with international companies and small businesses and as an individual counselor for the past 32 years, defines "getting real" as providing totally honest communication in order to live in the moment. Achieving carpe diem is harder than it may seem because, as children, people adopt false beliefs (e.g., "If you express your wants too strongly, you'll get punished") for protection. To reverse the damage done by that thinking, adults need to re-evaluate their personality. Campbell offers ten "truth skills" one per chapter that allow for more honest communication at home or in the workplace. Using the self-assessment quizzes at the beginning of each chapter, readers can easily evaluate their experiences. The author then details each truth skill, displaying numerous personal and client life issues as examples. A good title for group therapy, this is recommended for most self-help collections.
