Full Title --  Don't Buy The Lie: Eradicating False Belief Systems That Keep You From Your Destiny

Don't Buy The Lie shatters the saying, Don't judge a book by its cover. Not only does the book boast a great title, the imagery of the apple and snake drives the point home, and on a stark white background at that. Dr. Rios makes it clear this book is about BS - belief systems, that is. How we first buy into them, that is Buy The Lie; and from whom and why.

Don't Buy The Lie is positioned in the self-improvement
and Christian philosophy-theology categories. The book challenges the reader to dig deep into her mind and past in order to challenge the BS that keeps her from living the life God designed for her. Dr. Rios's writing flows with no stumbling blocks even while she recounts heavy emotional moments from her life to anchor the healing and biblical teachings she's passing to the reader.

The messages are structured as major steps (chapters) that list the stages one goes through to acknowledge, confront and eventually eradicate these belief systems. Each chapter concludes with an exercise where the reader is invited to "Make It Personal".

Don't Buy The Lie is accessible to everyone, regardless of religion, doctrine or spiritual beliefs. The book addresses core truths that benefits everyone.

Recommendation: HIGH
