This book is just what people need. --Marjorie Wallace, Chief Executive, SANE
Simple, straightforward, and highly effective ... I often recommend it. --Dr Chris Chopdar, University of Oxford & Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Mental Healthcare Trust
'Master your Mind' is full of the sort of frank, objective medical advice that you always hope for when visiting a doctor about a mental health difficulty. What makes it an unique and important book is the way in which that advice is presented ... Dr Neel Burton is the Delia Smith of the mental health world. Reading 'Master your Mind' is a little like discovering Delia's How to Cook after years of trying to find out how to boil an egg from intricate cake decorating manuals. For once, the instructions are laid out simply and clearly, and you wonder why you've wasted so much time trying to locate this simple, vital information. Burton does not assume that all his readers will start from a basis of enjoying good mental health, but nor does he assume that people with serious mental health difficulties are unable to understand and take responsibility for their health, given the right advice. This is a self-help guide without fuss or over-analysis - and in a world where most self-help books are far too flowery and vague, 'Master your Mind' is a breath of fresh air. --Laurie Penny, One in Four Magazine, April 2010
