Para lograrlo, Esquivel narra su experiencia en dos medios que hicieron que su nombre diera la vuelta al mundo: la escritura y el guion cinematográfico, dos suministros que podemos aprovechar para alcanzar los cambios que anhelamos. Basada en distintos descubrimientos científicos y reflexiones, Esquivel nos guía paso a paso mediante ejercicios que permiten modificar nuestra vida al reescribir el guión de la misma dejando atrás la culpa, los miedos, el dolor y todo aquello que nos causa daño."--Amazon
