Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski is not your typical rabbi. And Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. is not your typical psychiatrist. Since these two Twerskis are one and the same, this is far from your typical self-help book.

Thanks to Dr. Twerski’s unique approach, which combines sensitivity and practical psychiatric insight, you’ll achieve a unique perspective and a refreshing approach as to how to deal with life’s inevitable problems, both big and small.

Case in point: stress. Through proven modification and coping techniques, Dr. Twerski will show you how to “take the distress out of stress,” and consequently turn it into a powerful motivator.

Dr. Twerski will also help you become more proactive as he shows you what to “do” when you’re told “Don’t just stand there...do something!”

Never one for pat, generic solutions, Dr. Twerski gives you the benefit of his over 35 years of experience -- as both a rabbi and a psychiatrist -- and he does it in a simple, conversational way. After just a few pages, you’ll instantly understand why he’s one of the country’s preeminent psychiatrists -- and why over 40,000 people have sought him out for advice.

If you’re ready for a down to earth approach that will help improve your quality of life, let Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. show you why “It’s Not As Tough As You Think.

Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. is a psychiatrist and an ordained rabbi. He is the founder of the Gateway Rehabilitation Center in Pittsburgh, a leading center for addiction treatment. He is Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Dr. Twerski is a prolific author, with over 50 books to his credit, 4 of them in collaboration with Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip.
