I'd been trying to find this book for ages to give to friends and people in my work who could benefit from its wisdom. I am delighted to see it on Amazon again. (Maybe the drug companies were worried that Tune Your Brain works better than their products to improve mood. Better get it quick before they find out it's here.)
Need to relax, to focus, or to cure the blues? This book can help you do all that and more. All you need is a CD player, MP3 Player or a tape deck and some music you like.
I work with two groups particularly helped by the Tune Your Brain message: foster kids and law students. Foster kids suffer from loss, grief, fear and anger. Music, especially if kids have a role in the choice of which music, is an amazing tool for bringing them reassurance, calmness and joy. Through music, kids can learn to use their minds to create a space all their own where they can be happy, no matter what life throws at them. For kids facing uncertainty (which is nearly every kid everywhere), this book is a lifesaver and should required reading for any parent or foster-parent. Oh yea, it's good for coping with the stresses of parenting, too.
Students have to focus to study, they have to sleep and they have to deal with testing anxiety. Tune Your Brain is the answer. It shows you how to pick music for each situation that achieves the desired effect. It is also encourages taking regular mental breaks to crank up the volume and just have some fun. This is the best study guide you'll ever buy.
This is how I see the book, many people in other situations will find it is just the thing to rejuvenate, feel better and work smarter.
