Why Rush Limbaugh Was Euphoric About Therapy
"I wish I had done this 30 years ago." Rush returns and describes his therapy as a "wonderful process," "amazing," telling us "I'm so excited about what I learned and I want to tell you all about it." His euphoria about therapy is not the image that most people have of this soul-searching process.

Imagine going back to a typical day in your youth armed with your present philosophical knowledge. You would be able to ask yourself questions about your parents, such as: Did they help you grasp that the world is not crazy, but causal? Did they enable you to discover the joy of questioning and thinking? Did they show you how to deal effectively with "failure"—or to become value-oriented—or to protect yourself against altruism? Dr. Kenner presents the principles and skills that make parenting and childhood a pleasurable experience. Whether you want to raise children more effectively or want a better understanding of your own youth, this course offers you valuable insights.
