What People Are Saying About Dr. Ciaramicoli’s Books


In this book, Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli makes a well-informed and convincing case that happiness does not inevitably ensue from our personal or professional achievements. The widespread belief that it does is the very foundation of the “curse.” Happiness is not a function of doing but a positive way of being that fosters genuine relationships with self, with others, and with life in general. Excellent read!
James P. Brennan, Ph.D. , Sports Psychology Consultant, Villanova University men’s basketball team, Faculty, Muhlenberg College, Human Performance Consultant

This is a rare and special book, wise and helpful, savvy and profound and should be a real life saver for millions who are actually prevented by their drive and ability from having lives that are genuinely satisfying. A wonderful road map not just to a good life but to a life that feels good.
Mira Kirshenbaum , Author of the Emotional Energy Factor, When Good People Have Affairs and Everything Happens for a Reason

Bravo! Dr. Ciaramicoli has written his best book. The Curse of the Capable is a wonderful find in the toolshed of happiness. If you are alive, this book is for you.
