“A brilliant formula for tapping into our highest potential. I predict it will change many people’s lives for the better. Including yours.”
— Larry King
I used to have this problem. It’s going to sound crazy, but it’s true.
I had road direction anxiety.
Here’s how this worked: whenever I had to drive somewhere I hadn’t been to before, I would get so anxious I would completely freeze up. (This was in the pre-GPS days.) Road map? Great directions? Didn’t matter. I would become a basket case.
Ask my wife. She’s seen it. I consider myself a generaly fairly intelligent, capable guy, but I could get lost going from the bedroom to the living room. Think I’m exaggerating? I was at a restaurant a few years ago and got up to use the men’s room. When I came back out, I was lost. I’m serious.
I’ve had this condition my whole life. And guess what? It’s gone.
In fact, you can read about exactly how it got gone, and how dozens of other people lost all manner of fear, paralyzing terror, sadness, depression, jealousy, heartbreak, ennui, existential angst, insecurities, nervousness, addiction, self-sabotage, and other self-defeating issues—and learn exactly, precisely how you can do the same thing yourself—in this book.
Drs. George Pratt and Peter Lambrou have spent decades studying what they call the “fog of distress” that afflicts virtually all of us to one degree or another.
“Typically, this vague sense of unease parks itself in the background, like the annoying hum of a refrigerator or air conditioner we have learned to block out from our conscious awareness. But whether we are aware of it or not, it pervades our existence like an insistent headache, interfering with our ability to have healthy relationships, to perform to our potential at work, or to have lives that are anywhere near as fulfilling as they could be. Over the years, that background hum can sabotage our careers, friendships, marriages. Sometimes even our physical health starts to suffer.
“For some, this fog of distress shows up in very distinct and specific ways, such as an unshakable fear or irrational anxiety, a problem in one particular area of life. For others, it is more vague and generalized. That is, it’s not that any one specific thing is so terribly wrong. It’s more that nothing is quite right.” — from the Introduction
According to George and Peter, you can’t address this fog of distress purely through the reason or logic of dialog, even with the most expert counseling, because it lodges in our biofield at a cellular and energetic level. Their remarkable approach, codified so simply and accessibly in the four-step method we lay out in Code to Joy, is revolutionary because it addresses all three levels: body, mind, and biofield.
The most amazing thing about George and Peter’s method is, simply put, that it works.
P.S.: You can find the story of my weird road-haze affliction, and of how my intrepid coauthors eliminated it, in the first two chapters of the book—only you’ll have to look carefully, because I’m there in disguise!
“Code to Joy draws you in to a new way of thinking and being and eliminates that fog of distress that haunts so many. Dr. Pratt is a master clinician and skilled story-teller whose work will guide you to a happier, more joyful life. I highly recommend it.”

“I love the powerful work George and Peter are doing. I’ve seen it touch people’s lives—even change people’s lives. Code to Joy is more than a book, it’s an inspiring and enlightening journey to connect with your true self and be the loving being you were created to be.”
— Common, Grammy Award–winning recording artist, actor (American Gangster, Happy Feet Two), author and philanthropist
“Code to Joy offers a simple, powerful, and brilliant method for experiencing authentic happiness from the inside out. And inner happiness is the basis of outer success.”
— Marci Shimoff, author of Happy for No Reason
“One of the greatest discoveries of the twentieth century was the intimate connection between body, mind, and spirit. Drs. Pratt and Lambrou are on the cutting edge, turning that discovery into techniques that work. If you want to experience more joy and fulfillment, pick up a copy of Code to Joy. It could change your life.”

“Over a few months of implementing Dr. Pratt’s work, I lost twenty pounds, started a new family, moved into my dream home, created a business model that generated $650,000 in gross revenue, and ended a twenty-one-year cycle of heavy drug and alcohol abuse. And the remarkable thing was, it felt like all these things just happened, with no special effort on my part. This work is literally life-changing.”
