    3. Getting high on virtuesReview of The Secret of Emotions. The Spiritual Roots of our Hidden Motivations by Justice Saint RainReview by Alison MarshallThe Secret of Emotions is a warm, conversational 100-page book about how we misinterpret our emotions and, hence, make poor decisions and wind up in bad situations that leave us with feelings of shame and failure.

    6. I will begin by declaring Justice Saint Rain a talented writer.The book began interesting enough but it was repetitive andneeded some further examples for a little variation. The points made were very good except for a couple I felt was a little excessive.This could be recommended for any counselor, teacher, or spiritualleader's reference shelf. It is intende mostly for self-helpbut I fear interest would be lost before the reader got to the part of the book that suggests steps to follow.The writ [...]

    7. I have always loved Justice St Rain's friendly, humble, conversational style and helpful insights, and this book takes us deeper than he's ever taken us before. The first 50 pages are a very basic review of the emotional life for someone who has done a fair amount of inner work; for others it could be very helpful. After that he starts to get into the main point of the book, which is the linkage between emotions and virtues. Because of the light, unassuming tone of the book, it would be easy to [...]

    8. I found the first 1/3 of the book psychobabble but really enjoyed the last 2/3. I like how Rain wove God into emotions. Basically emotions are a clue that a virtue is either present or is missing from our lives. Virtues bring us closer to becoming what God intended us to be. I really like the end where it discussed how people obtained joy and it wasn't be receiving things it was by giving-enacting a virtue for others. Our society is geared towards getting all you think you should have coming to [...]

    9. I won this book in a giveaway. I have read a handful of psychological self-help books over the last couple of years, but this book has some fasinating insights that I have never seen elsewhere, things that seem obvious once pointed out, but no one noticed them prior to reading. Some of these insights are now on my list of self diagnosis, and I think I am a calmer,and more understanding person because of internalizing some of its principles. I plan on lending this to my friend, I just know she w [...]

What I liked about this book is that you don't need to believe in any one religion just in God in general. I found the chapter on virtues to be to be the most relevant to myself.

    12. I have read countless psychological self-help books over the years, but this little book has some amazing insights I have never seen elsewhere - things that seem obvious once pointed out, except that no one noticed them before. Some of the insights are now part of my self-diagnosis tool-kit, and I'd like to think I am a calmer, happier, more understanding person because of internalizing some of its principles.
