5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and complete, 10 May 2006
This review is from: Manage Your Mind: The Mental Fitness Guide (Paperback)
This is a complete users manual for the brain. Thought is too linked to personality to make it easy for us to evaluate what we do and how we think.

The writers are objective and very methodical, taking the reader through common sense and less obvious steps. The chapters are well divided and enable reference back to specific areas of interest. For example, although interesting, the chapters on addiction were not relevant to me, while time manaement was; the sectioning of the book enables me to refer to Time Management as a topic.

There are lots of points here that may seem obvious but I don't see that as a point of criticism. I would rather this than other points and methods of management were left out. We do tend to ignore the obvious sometimes anyway.

The book is unemotional, and not an inspiring, lifting book to change your life. This isn't a criticism, but an observation. You can get that in other books. This is a mechanic's manual.

Another good point is that this deals with a range of functions of the brain. For example, depression may be a reason for you reading the book, but such is the application, those of us not suffering from it can benefit from the knowledge of cognitive therapy. Further, topics range from illnesses such as depression to practical tips for normal healthy relationships and managing work committments and solving problems.

Many of us who already use our minds well don't fully see how we do this. The book stands outside and objectively shows us how we do it and what else we can do. In that, it's a winner.
