Publisher's Summary

Do you ever wish you could rewrite your life?

Our lives are defined by the stories we tell ourselves, but those stories aren't always true. Narratives that are based on outdated or irrelevant information can run (or ruin) our lives for years, even if those stories are wildly different from the objective reality that formed them.

In her sixth book, Tell Yourself a Better Lie, best-selling author Marisa Peer shares for the first time how Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) creates stunning in-the-room turnarounds for issues as varied as suicidal depression, eating disorders, weight loss, and life-limiting phobias and addictions.

Through 10 diverse case studies, Marisa explains how our unmet needs as children can morph into fixed stories we tell ourselves in adulthood-and, more importantly, how we all have the power to change them. If you've been longing for a happier, more fulfilled life, pick up Tell Yourself a Better Lie and take control of your own story today.

Empowering!

Marisa’s book shines a powerful light on what plagues nearly all of us. The root cause of our pain and suffering. The harsh words, the critical words, and the lies we tell ourselves. Becoming aware of, and questioning the words and lies we tell ourselves is tremendously empowering!
Reading through the client RTT sessions was fascinating. I found a little piece of myself in each of them. Which meant for me, there breakthroughs were also mine.
Marisa simplifies the scientific research of how to use neuroscience, neuroplasticity, and root cause hypnosis to change our old thought and belief patterns. She explains what the mind’s job really is. To keep us safe and alive. Not to make us happy. That’s our job. By telling ourselves a better lie…
This book and Marisa Peer’s RTT method is impactful! I can’t wait to share it with my family and friends. It also comes with guided visualization recordings so you can start changing right now.

Just stories about those under hypnosis. Not what I wanted or expected. Didn’t even get through half

Extremely Useful Book

This is a really useful and practical work by Peer. It contains useful case studies and anecdotes. I would have loved a tad more empirical and scientific backup. With that said, I am sold on this method and the wisdom of Peer.

TellYourself a Better Lie, Marisa Peer

Don’t waist your time and money on this author.
It’s all about her: “I did this and I did that” non-stop.
Boring !

Fascinating stories

My favorite part of the book comes at the end where I was given specific rules on how to talk to myself and "self parent". I didn't grow up with the greatest family. They instilled fear in me about everything. This book showed me that I can undo the damage by being my own loving and supportive parent.

Life altering

This information has arrived at a time in my own healing journey that is no doubt serendipitous. It's one thing to be an adult child in recovery for 7 years having utilized all of a particular program that it has to offer and quite another to stumble upon very precise guidance on a deep reparenting technique that gives unapologetic permission and direction to do so. Thank you to the author for sharing her journey with the world!

Wonderfully disappointing

The technique is what I was looking for, but the book was not. I expected hands on technique to resolve issues, not anecdotes. RTT seems amazing, yet equally as challenging to access.

What a book!!!

This book has changed my life. I’m far from being my true self but after listening to this book is like if I had taken the right road towards happiness.
I want to find a coach and I’m loving the audios on website, their soothing and helped me to keep going.
Thank you, Marisa for sharing your beautiful knowledge and guiding me through the darkest time of my life. You don’t know me but I want you to know you have saved my life with your book, audios and YouTube videos.

Greetings from Brazil

Really frustrating

I really like the principals and ideas behind Marissa peers coaching however this book is basically she said he said conversation from the coaching of her clients. I’m 2 chapters in and just can’t listen to anymore.

Amazing

Fascinating case studies. The book is beautifully narrated. It's a pleasure to listen to. I bought the audio first and then had to buy the paperback as well because I needed a hardcopy to highlight key points and make margin notes. A great buy and highly recommended if you are looking for some insight into how the mind covertly influences our behaviour. Great for therapists too!

One looong advert

Here's where I'm coming from: I like Marisa, I appreciate many of her YouTube videos and definitely want an Rapid Transformational therapy session, ideally with her.

What I dislike and disagree with is her helping ppl get pregnant - considering that this planet is overpopulated and dying because of us humans. Also not sure she's qualified to speak on nutrition (unless she's championing veganism, because anything else is just cruelty and climate change).

I drag my feet a little on nonfiction books, so while I have some of her other works, this one I've completed (while doing the dishes).

And I'm pretty disappointed. I'm sorry I bought it.

It is basically one long ad for her unique course teaching RTT which is a form of therapy she developed.
I wouldn't rec this to anyone except those who are interested in being a therapist/helping ppl.

What really grinds my beans is: I can understand giving links to the audio (hypnosis etc) in other formats of this book but COME ON- *THIS IS AN AUDIOBOOK!* You couldn't have just included the relevant audio thingies in between chapters or right at the! end?! Bc hello? AUDIObook.

I'm not sure I got anything out of this; Also, there's a couple mentions of child abuse by perverts so if that sickens/triggers you too, maybe give this a wide berth.

Bit shifts on every page!

I have enjoyed Marissa Peer's work for a few years and was overjoyed when I found this book. the stories we tell ourselves are just that, stories. I have done a great deal of work on my personal development over the years but there are a few things that just haven't shifted (excellent terms used in this book seem to apply to me such as: learned helplessness, just as one example).
The narrator is easy to listen to and delivers the content in an easy to listen to manner - some of the stories were hard to listen to, even though you know the person found RTT to be the key to their freedom of thoughts and behaviours.
I loved it.

Blown Away

I have just finished listening to Marisa Peer’s latest book and bestseller, ‘Tell Yourself A Better Lie’. I wanted to share some of the highlights and most helpful bits but it’s packed with highlights and helpful bits. Her simple yet so effective checklist has helped me so much already. The audio hypnosis recordings are like having a 1-1 session with Marisa. I know that you too will be blown away by the effectiveness of this book. The sensitive case studies really emphasise the issues that people have and how RTT helps people overcome them. Just be prepared with a box of tissues nearby but know there is a happy ending. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Helen

Fascinating alternative to traditional therapy

Well read and fascinating audiobook on RTT and how to use it to fix your false beliefs. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who’s stuck using the same old self-help methods that are failing them.

Brilliant

Reading this book helped me enormously with working through some of my outstanding issues. I felt like I was going to therapy myself and found answers that Ive been searching for a long time. But not only that, it gave me strategies and solutions of how to deal with them which I found incredibly useful. My clarity and life is immensely better now. Thank you Marisa.

book that helped me the most

Amazing book! I felt like I attended therapy sessions with Marisa Peer after I read it. She goes into so much detail in the book, just like a session.
It helped me so much. I've never been more happy with any other book I read my whole life.

Brilliant!

I loved this book and will joyfully and enthusiastically express how incredible RTT is from the rooftops!!! The way Marisa writes is always beautifully smooth and she shares her incredible knowledge from her heart. I personally experienced a 100% recovery from calcific tendonitis after using RTT. I had been in increasing pain for 5 years which had escalated to a point where I struggled to sleep and required help to dress. After an incredible session with my RTT Practitioner, I noticed after 7 days an 80% reduction in my pain and within 10 days, my pain had completely gone, leaving me with full motion in my shoulders again. I was blown away! I went on to have sessions for self-esteem and confidence, which were all amazing. I'm studying as an RTT Practitioner and will soon graduate. This book is a blessing for all of us that are ready to heal. Thank you Marisa. ❤
