The Neuro Edge: People Insights for Leaders and Practitioners
The Neuro Edge: People Insights for Leaders and Practitioners
by Clive Hyland
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book on neuroscience, 15 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clive Hyland has written an amazing book on the subject of neuroscience. He calls it Neuroedge - People insights for Leaders and Practitioners - but this is a book everyone should read. The author is an expert in his field and writes about this incredibly complex topic in such a clear and insightful way. I learnt so much from his book and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in people and how they work! Well done Clive Hyland on your gift to human understanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book, 17 July 2009
I bought this book yesterday and read it last night - just couldn't put it down, which is pretty unusual for a book on research. Yes, some of the research I knew (which I should as an occupational psychologist!) but certainly not delivered in such a humorous, readable and interesting style. It provides lots of helpful tips around issues everyone faces in day to day life. The difference between this book and all those self-help mumbo jumbo ones, is that the tips given are quick and realistic to implement but the biggest and most important thing is that these are based on psychological research and therefore proven to make a difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive and practical bible to getting a job, 29 Mar. 2009
Denise has produced this timely work book that hits the nail on the head in terms of a mix of practical advice and exercises.

As an occupational psychologist specialising in careers, she has the qualifications and experience to be able to offer excellent advice and guidance. She provides us with a practical 28 day programme which is relevant whether you are looking to enter the job market for the first time, changing careers or have been made redundant. Not only does she address the emotional side of job hunting but also the practical areas such as writing CVs, finding jobs and attending interviews. She provides innovative suggestions for ways for finding jobs and does not simply abandon us when the job is secured but holds our hands in providing suggestions as to handle the first 90 days of the job.

I would (and have) recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new role or values their working life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book, 21 Mar. 2003
This is such an excellent publication - very easy to read and informative. It explains clearly and simply symptoms and solutions for managing gut problems. Invaluable for learning more what causes these problems such as Crohns Disease, IBS and food allergies and how to go about sorting them out. Ms Zinser has a lovely down to earth style of writing about potentially embarrassing diseases and includes how to get the best from your doctor and how to go about finding further information with good pointers to web pages and organisations. I would recommend this book to anyone with gut problems or as an information source as to how to look after yourself to try to avoid them.
