No. This book has multiple deep levels that help you to improve your reaction with yourself with the inner conversation, but also understand and know yourself more with self-awareness. This mix of self-awareness with inner conversation can take you to high levels of peace, calmness, and love for yourself. The way the author has described human beings, the way we work, function, what we can be, who we already are - all of it validates the title, as the book teaches us the art of talking to ourselves. The language is easy to read, but not very simple. There are complex concepts explained, resulting in a complex writing style. However, there is an ample amount of metaphors and analogies that simplify every concept, making it easier for the reader to understand the author. The only way to check the intensity and importance of the content is to read it. It cannot be explained in words. The content relates to every reader differently. The content is a lifetime process, but the practice will make you bloom and shine. I loved this book. If you are someone like me, who is constantly trying to understand yourself, love yourself, make peace with yourself, and become limitless, this is your book.

    I had to read ‘The Art of Talking to Yourself’ twice, just to make sure I’ve actually read it right the first time! Both times I recognized myself, my friends, family and antagonists in conversations, meetings and inner self-talk. I giggled and laughed out loud when recognizing myself in Vironika’s examples, there were moments of identifying my own self-talk, when my heart trembled with sorrow and I had to cry. All these pages - liberating the truth of my own journey - in my search to find mysel I had to read ‘The Art of Talking to Yourself’ twice, just to make sure I’ve actually read it right the first time! Both times I recognized myself, my friends, family and antagonists in conversations, meetings and inner self-talk. I giggled and laughed out loud when recognizing myself in Vironika’s examples, there were moments of identifying my own self-talk, when my heart trembled with sorrow and I had to cry. All these pages - liberating the truth of my own journey - in my search to find myself – not through weekend courses or coaches – but by honestly accepting that each part of me can only be understood – by me. After reading it twice I feel ‘normal’ and no longer alone. I know by reading this book many others too will find courage and understanding of their own inner conversations. I highly recommend all who are searching to find something within, to read Vironika’s book. //Eva Trinity

    The world is full of “experts” who are willing to tell you exactly what to do and how to live your life to find happiness, succeed in business, or almost anything else where you have a desire but don’t know how to go about achieving what you want in life. “Just follow my 5-step process,” “the step-by-step way to get what you want,” “the secret to succeeding at” almost anything is waiting for you at any bookstore, or online where all sorts of “experts” are willing to enroll you in their programs The world is full of “experts” who are willing to tell you exactly what to do and how to live your life to find happiness, succeed in business, or almost anything else where you have a desire but don’t know how to go about achieving what you want in life. “Just follow my 5-step process,” “the step-by-step way to get what you want,” “the secret to succeeding at” almost anything is waiting for you at any bookstore, or online where all sorts of “experts” are willing to enroll you in their programs that promise success and fulfillment if you will just adopt their proprietary system. The Art of Talking to Yourself is NOT a book in this genre of “expert” answers to all your questions. In fact, Viktoria Tugaleva states, right from the beginning, that she is not an expert, but a fellow traveller on the road to seeking wisdom and insight, not one who is there to sell you answers, but one to help you to ask questions. If you want easy answers, this is not your book. But if you want honest counsel, you’ve come to the right place. There are no easy answers, Tugaleva writes, but there are honest questions. And the answers are not out there, but inside yourself. The key is to ask yourself the questions and listen to your own soul to find the path of self-knowledge and wisdom. This book is refreshing in its honesty and forthrightness. It won’t lead you down a garden path only to leave you disappointed when the “answers” don’t lead to the promised success and happiness, but it will point you to the one place where the meaning you’ve been seeking resides––in yourself. If you want real meaning in your life, you will need to create it. If you want to really know yourself, you will need to embark on a journey of self-discovery. In The Art of Talking to Yourself, Vironika Tuvaleva stands ready to help you start that journey and walk alongside you as a guide––not an expert, but a fellow seeker––to share with you what she has learned in her years of walking down this path. The journey is well worth taking.

    Vironika's The Art of Talking to Yourself is filled with honest stories from her life which made me laugh and cry. She doesn't preach about the 'right' things to do, but instead gently coaxes the reader on a journey of self-discovery, creating an essential companion to any self-help book because it will help you respect your own inner feedback above any expert's advice.

    I was drawn to The Art of Talking to Yourself because of its title and pretty cover. Why on Earth do we not talk about self-talk more? After all, we spend a lot of time with the voices in our heads. With this thought, I dived right into the book. And landed flat on my face. The book started slow. Like most self-help texts, I expected this one to give me templates to follow with self-talk.

Why on Earth do we not talk about self-talk more? After all, we spend a lot of time with the voices in our heads. With this thought, I dived right into the book. And landed flat on my face. The book started slow. Like most self-help texts, I expected this one to give me templates to follow with self-talk. Instead, the author spent the first few chapters explaining how self-help books are "static" entities that aren't of much help to you, a dynamic element. Truth be told, I was annoyed in the first half, partly because I felt she went out of her way in making sure this is not a self-help book, and partly because I didn't receive the traditional self-help advice I am so used to following. After the first few chapters, though, it started making sense. The author brought out nuances in self-talk that often go unnoticed. Reading the book felt like reading an affirmative text. A lot of things were repeatedly talked about in different forms, but the repetition only affirmed the ideas the author was trying to reinforce: all the answers you seek are in your head. I especially loved the parts where she talked about finding a balance in self-talk and explained the pitfalls of extremism. Extremism, she said, offered the shortcut to making peace with your fallacies, which fails to pacify you in the long term. Another thought that touched me was her idea of dealing with inner voices. It is important to label the separate voices to identify them. However, it is equally important to let the voices talk, make peace with each other, and let them know that they are being heard and taken care of. Confusing at first, Tugaleva's writing style grew on me. The book's concept justifies the pretty jacket. This was a good, one-of-a-kind, one-time read that exposed me to a lesser-known genre of self-help: the art of self-talk.

    I found “The Art of Talking to Yourself,” both fascinating and useful. In my review of it, I make liberal use of quotes from the book. In my opinion the book speaks best for itself. Self-help usually means finding someone to teach you skills, either via a class, workshop, magazine, book, or online—to help you with their techniques or by example. And often paying a lot for it. In the beginning of the book, this idea is examined: "The warning I want to give is not about self-help but consumerism." I found “The Art of Talking to Yourself,” both fascinating and useful.

In the beginning of the book, this idea is examined: "The warning I want to give is not about self-help but consumerism." This is paradoxical. "Part of my task is to leave you with some firewood and show you some pathways to find more. But my ultimate task is to encourage you to seek and find your own paths. I do not hope to show you the most sustainable way to gather kindling for the blaze inside your soul. More than anything, I want to show you the beauty of fire and awaken you to your inner urge—the same urge I found within me—to keep that fire burning. I love the liberal and skilled use of metaphors to make the difficult become obvious. “We are encouraged to begin the inner dialogue—to become best friends with the one person we will be with our whole life: ourselves." "Of all the questions we ask ourselves from day to day, perhaps the most important is 'What does this mean?' This simple query is a catalyst between reality and our perception of it." "To keep hold of reality, we must welcome and embrace its paradoxes. With inner balance, you can live a fuller life instead of only playing one small part in it." The descriptions of process revolve around the inner communication as if the different parts of oneself were having a conversation. This is done very cleverly. "You will forge your path as you walk it. The more you experience this, the more you will see how useless, and even dangerous, this book can be. And the more you realize how much this book can never do, the more you will come to appreciate the small purpose it can serve: to show you the warmth of your inner fire and inspire you to keep it kindled." As a self-published author myself, [[ASIN:1304022862 The Bumpy Road, A Memoir of Culture Clash Including Woodstock, Mental Hospitals, and Living in Mexico]], I really appreciate the last chapter, entitled: "How You Can Help (The 'Marketing Plan')." I’ll leave that up to you to enjoy. For anyone interested in improving themselves, in any way, this book is a must read.

    This is a anti-self-help-book that is truly a self-help book at its loving core. Author Vironika Tugaleva does everything in her considerable power to turn you towards the answers that lie within you.

As Vironika writes, “The purpose of this book, more so than to provide tricks and tips, is to encourage you to travel with your eyes open, your heart courageous, and your mind always ready to learn.” Author Tugaleva alerts us to the many traps of abdicating our own best answers, and the pitfalls of relinquishing our power to other, even well-meaning, voices eager to tell us how to live our lives. As she writes, only we, ourselves, can travel that journey to The Self. This is a much-needed truth! Nonetheless, we can still be grateful for the helping hands and inspiring words we find on our journeys. Vironika Tugaleva is one such guiding spirit that is destined to help many people along the way: a truly generous leader on the path to the self, and a writer of immense talent.

    2.5 stars. I listened to the audiobook. To me, it felt like the author was talking in circles. There are too many similes and metaphors and not enough practical advice. The best insights get lost in context because it goes around and around without actually leading you anywhere. If I wasn't listening to the audiobook, there's no way I could have finished it. Would have been better to make this 50 pages full of substance, instead of trying to stretch it out. It's more of a thought experiment than an 2.5 stars. I listened to the audiobook.

    I wanted to like this book but it just didn’t captivate me at all. It was so difficult to get through. I’m honestly shocked I was able to finish it. I was put off by the lengths the author went to to put down self help books and claim that this “wasn’t that”. There’s nothing wrong with self help books, they have helped me immensely! I found the book to drag on and on without ever really saying anything. There were a few good points that resonated with me but overall I wouldn’t recommend it.

    I appreciated the theme of this book, but I felt that it was executed poorly. I read the entire book hoping that it would all tie together, but it didn’t for me. I wish it would have been edited better for flow, because I think the author has life experiences to share that shouldn’t get lost in the shuffle. I would also like to read a memoir by the same author once she is more mature and has more experience writing.

The art of talking to yourself by Vironika Tugaleva, published in 2017, is an inspiration in itself. Vironika does not pretend to have a cure but gently guides her readers on a path of self-discovery, mostly by making them curious about the mystery of your inner self. ---- This is especially important for healing trauma. After abuse or neglect, we believe blaming those who hurt us will liberate us from suffering. And for a moment, it does. If you spent years thinking everything was your fault, then pointing the finger back at your abuser will bring a much-needed perspective: it wasn't your fault. This is true. But just because something isn't your fault doesn't mean it must be someone else's. Pointing that finger can bring us a moment of peace, but keeping it pointed can have devastating consequences. We can trap ourselves in the very cycles we're trying to escape. ----- As a person with a staggering list of mental health issues, I started reading this book in hopes of a quick fix, there is no shame in admitting this. But when I reached about halfway through the book, I quickly realized the writer had better things in mind. Vironika did a good job bringing attention to seeing our world ( with in/out ourselves) from different perspectives and how important it is to look talk to our inner-selves. As a non-English speaker, I did have some troubles reading the use of expensive words, but overall I think I got the most out of the book. I love how Vironika used examples throughout her story, both from imaginary and real-life experiences, this way I was able to really understand and connect with her concept. Overall I really enjoyed reading this book, it was both an eye-opener and closer. I would recommend anyone who might be feeling stuck inside their little dark places to pick up this book.

    Veronika talks about her own journey and candid experiences in her book which she describes as a “real, messy, imperfect, and human—just like me.” It is refreshing to hear her personal stories woven into practical life lessons on topics she faced and many others face, like imposter syndrome. As a therapist I really liked the importance of really listening to yourself, focusing on understanding your current inner dialogue. The recognition of the quick fix mentality and need for immediate relief is Veronika talks about her own journey and candid experiences in her book which she describes as a “real, messy, imperfect, and human—just like me.” It is refreshing to hear her personal stories woven into practical life lessons on topics she faced and many others face, like imposter syndrome. As a therapist I really liked the importance of really listening to yourself, focusing on understanding your current inner dialogue. The recognition of the quick fix mentality and need for immediate relief is also an important discussion she brings up. I was able to relate to her conversation around self-observation and not holding tight to a false sense of certainty in life. She points out how we often use what we believe to be self-protection when in reality we are doing more harm than good. Understanding true self-compassion and balance is crucial to healing and thriving.

    The Art of Talking to Yourself is an incredibly refreshing and honest look at the path to self-awareness. It reminds us we have the power to heal ourselves and our inner patterns, and that not only is the journey of true self-discovery worthwhile, it’s the most important journey we'll ever take. I love how it shines a light on the fact that no expert, and no self-help book, can walk that path for us; it's ours alone.

    As someone who has travelled down the hard road of self-discovery and clearing most of my pain and baggage I have found in this book not only someone else who has travelled a similar road, but someone who made notes and has put them into a book for others. The truth is that there is a perfect answer to every problem and issue. This book helps you ask the questions to the one who is really the wisest and has the most to gain, yourself. I loved this book. Trust yourself enough to read it.

    I've been letting this book languish on my bookshelf for a year, and I feel like I owe it a big apology. I've been familiar with Vironika's writing from TinyBuddha.com, her Instagram account and Goodreads quotes for a couple years and I'm adding this book to my Top Five. I loved this book for the constant supportive reminder to listen into ourselves, to be aware of our conditioning, to know that we will have difficult times. I'm actually struggling to define it but I very much recommend it. She I've been letting this book languish on my bookshelf for a year, and I feel like I owe it a big apology.

    This book is honestly written with passion. At the same time the message didn’t resonate with me and didn’t find it insightful when it came to the topic of self-awareness or understanding who we are as individuals. It was never clear to me who are the “self-help gurus.” Are they people who write general self-help books? Are they life coaches who package their books with inspirational speaking?

Are they the people who write self-help books from a spiritual angle? All of them? I don’t think people really believe any self-help book is going to get them everywhere they want to go, and if they think that it’s a sign of co-dependence in itself. Also, many of the spiritual self-help books are clear that they can only point arrows or illuminate a path, and it’s up to the individual to do the work which is similar to what this author emphasizes in the beginning of the book as what makes her approach different. There are some gems in the writing, but they were far in between self-examination and advice about becoming aware of your thinking, labeling the characters in your mind, and playing with the dichotomous thought patterns. I see how becoming aware of our thinking lends us to become more self-aware of ourselves. However, there was no explanation about how the advice actually leads to insightful conclusions such as everything is interconnected, and we are all part of nature. This leaves the reader completely unsure how advising anyone to play with the thoughts in their mind as a method to self-awareness is a productive route. Seems to me a more comfortable and, quite possibly, a healthier approach just to take note of the thoughts, accept them, let them go, and allow insights to surface. It will be interesting to see additional books from this author as she continues on her life path.

    I'm finding it hard to see anything unique about this book that sets it apart from other self-help books. Apart from the obvious fact that it admits it doesn't have all the answers.

    I've read many books on this subject and the themes are often too abstract. The voice the author used was more down to earth and detailed. People will definitely understand this subject more effectively than before by reading this book. We are told to be happy and are given the self- discovery and contentment jargon. But, what about about how to grasp peace, and contentment in the midst of a bad season or rocky moment in our lives? This book gives the goodies.

    The Art of Talking to Yourself is a gem of a book filled with unexpected--often brilliant--insights. It stands out among the 'self-help' genre by urging us to look more mindfully at the authorities selling 'happiness' and realize that we need to trust ourselves more in our quest for a more fulfilling life. Vironika Tugaleva writes with the graceful authenticity of an experienced and thoughtful seeker, who became a gifted writer along the way on the bumpy road of life. ~Margaret B.

    Too complicated I decided to read this as I thought it would be a quick read as a short book. There are too many tangents going off from all subjects so it's hard to get the actual message it tries to bring. I can see some of the ideas are good, but it didn't need all the bulking out that it has. I stopped reading a third of the way through.

    I couldn't finish this book. The author just seems to babble on about herself and doesn't have anything new to say. About a third of the way into it I started skimming through it to see if it went anywhere. Finally about halfway through I gave up. I couldn't finish this book.
