"In Grow Up Your Ego" author Jeannette M. Gagan...creates a self-help instruction manual that is an informed and informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking, inspired and inspiring, and above all, practical and thoroughly "user friendly" for the non-specialist general reader seeking to improve the quality of their personal lives. Very highly recommended for personal and community library self-help collections." MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW, AUGUST 2014 "This book will reveal how a full understanding of the ego's essence will further your emotional and spiritual evolution and strengthen your intent to make the ego your ally. This well-written, concise, informative book offers valuable information for both lay persons and therapists regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the ego and how to grow into healthier human beings. All chapter are informative, but chapter on the ten stages of ego growth is especially valuable. The final two chapters on exploring higher states of being, including self-actualization, must be read by those wanting to live exemplary lives. While the book doesn't replace therapy or a spiritual focus, it will be an excellent adjunct to the processes." The US Review of Books (Reviewed by Carol Anderson, D.Min., ACSW, LMSW
