It is a well written and easy to follow and understand description of his 20 year search for and discovery of a standardized theory and intervention method for psychological problems. The book introduces the reader to Dr. Mastria's theory of Reflexive Attention Diversion and his treatment method called Attention Training.



For thousands of years, from the ashram to the consulting room, attention has been used to cultivate inner states of tranquility and meditation. Now, using a simple reflex arc, Dr. Mastria has enabled practically anyone to effortlessly promote these states throughout the day. Dr. Mastria’s Attention Training should benefit anyone seeking to calm their nerves and attain greater peace of mind.”--David J. Grandcolas, Ph.D.


“Mastria’s ‘Back to Basics’ approach to psychological problems and their treatment is brilliant in its simplicity and represents a radical departure from orthodox psychological theory. It should appeal to anyone who has lost faith in the efficacy of traditional psychological treatments.”--Erich Labouvie, Ph.D. - Rutgers University 


 “Dr. Mastria has developed a unique method for dealing with a vast array of psychological difficulties. The principal quality of his work is marked by an elegant return to that which is fundamental. Because of the refreshingly unencumbered approach, Attention Training will appeal to virtually everyone.” -- James J. Ferretti, MD - Psychiatry, Jersey City 

The ToDo Institute also recommends Life is a Matter of Attention.
