The title was intriguing and inviting, as was the cover of the book. The POP on the cover made me curious about what that could be and was a second invitation to read the book. The cover was peaceful although it did have a feeling of "spirituality" about it - sort of like a book on life after death. The introduction to the book immediately made me like the author and want to hear his story. It was written in such a straight-forward, direct manner. And, frankly, in his first few sentences I could relate to the fact that what he had experienced in terms of depression was exactly what I have and do experience - perhaps not at the same level - but when being honest with myself, the depression and anxiety are certainly there. I really liked the gray page with the "synopsis" statement, which started each chapter. Some of these statements could be used as affirmations or be placed around the house to remind me to do a POP. Maybe the book could contain a pocket in the back with some of these POP reminders that could be placed on mirrors, doors, counters, desks, etc. The process of doing a POP will not take place if we do not remember to do a POP. It was an easy read, totally clear, and motivating enough that with one quick reading, I felt that I had a technique that could be used to change my thinking.
