This is a short overview of cognitive behavioural therapy, and how it can be used to control emotions in your brain. It also does a good job of making the important distinction events and emotions in relation to that event.
Considering the low price and short play time, this is a concise introduction to CBT without having to commit to a full length book.
I didn't find it as helpful as I had hoped. No real lightbulb moments.
not so much, not as excelent as it should have been
It takes a lot for me to stay interested long enough to find a good book. Through audible I have found more great books this year than the last 4 years put together. I enjoy science and technology as well as business books and biographies. I like to learn how things work as long as its delivered in an interesting way. But I must admit that the Harry Potter series are still probably my favorite books from when I was a kid.
Not a lot...
I thought it was poorly written and was overall surprised about the content. This was not what I was looking for.
I have both. The audio book is short enough where I've just listened to it, or a portion of it, again.
The kindle version is nice and as a reference book it's great to be able to search for what you need and just grab some targeted facts.
The author wasn't bad, just not good. The author just seemed very dry and lacking a speaking charisma that was able to do his own words justice.
I can't think of anyone in particular, but just anyone who was lighter on their tongues and a bit more expressive.
An example of a potentially very dry read by an author was Brain Trust by Garth Sundem. He's not a great performer, but just animated a lot of facts very well. I just kept thinking back this this previous book I'd heard and wishing Garth was reading this one as well.
There were a number of useful
The content is great!
Informative, Inciteful, Useful
The Brain Mechanic can be compared to the the book The Brain Mechanic can be compared to the the book
I think the narration could be more dynamic in terms of how some things are said, but the information makes up for the presentation.
Overall the Brain Mechanic is a good read, you will gain new perspective on the functions of your brain in addition to what you already know.
