While you could read Helen Emms' 195 page 'Changing Mindsets & Developing Spirit' from cover to cover it would to some degree be missing the point - quite literally. Each of the 15 sections is introduced by a short explanation followed by some key coaching points in bullet point format. The 'magic' though is in the insightful verses that offer many interpretations on different levels. For Emms it is fear that is preventing us from leading successful and fulfilled lives and her approach for overcoming it, lies in the spiritual self. Her book and in particular her verses are a key to unlocking that connection. By making the reader aware of his or her feelings and thoughts she offers the unconscious - perhaps like a 'soft' sleight of mouth, the opportunity to change the mindset. While most verses are generalist in their approach, some appear to deal more specifically with sporting experiences and yet, these too, are a metaphor with opportunities to change the mindset and again connect more deeply with the spiritual self. It's a book to reread again and again, especially if you feel the day didn't go so well. --Rapport, The Magazine for Personal Development, Winter 2010/2011 by Timothy Hilgenberg
