The Entitlement Cure by Dr. John Townsend is a book that is ripe for our society (including myself). Although I didn’t pick up this book because I felt like I needed a cure for my self entitlement I began to realize reading through it that “hey I think that or do that sometimes; is that really how I come across to people when I do that?” It opened up my eyes to some of my behaviors and how I am seen by others as well as gave me a sense of understanding how to deal with those that act entitled.
Society today all feels entitled to get a piece of the pie while doing nothing to contribute to its making. People who don’t spend any time thinking about the future or caring for their education expect society to take care of them all because they live in America. And on the other hand people that are successful act all entitled because they worked hard to be successful, however they don’t come off as very nice people. This book help illuminate the wrongs paths and wrong way of thinking in terms of entitlement and shows how curing such way of acting and thinking actually makes for a better life, creates healthier relationship, and promotes a Christ centered way of living instead of self centered.
This book is for all, weather you are reading it to learn how to deal with people that act entitled around you or you are reading it for your own good it will help spur a healthier way of living and help develop a life that others want to be a part of. A 5/5 rating! Thank you to Zondervan for blessing me with this book.
