    You have the incredible power to change the way you think, perceive, and react to stress - for the better - through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT has been known to be widely successful in the treatment of problems associated with anxiety, depression, mood, personality, addiction, weight, and emotions. Until recently, access to CBT was only available through professional therapy. Now with The Brain Mechanic, Spencer Lord delivers a concise, entertaining, and easy-to-use guide that demystifies cognitive behavioral therapy.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Brain Mechanic to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not Applicable.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Spencer Lord?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were a number of useful


    Any additional comments?

    The content is great!

    As the Wheel turns, the winds of fate roil across the land. Rand al 'Thor struggles to unite the nations for the Last Battle when the Dark One will break free into the world to spring the snares laid by the immortal Forsaken for unwary humankind. The White Tower in Tar Valon, under the Amyrlin Elaida, has decided that Rand must be controlled immediately.

    You do you start 5,000 pages into the series. So If you loved the rest, you'll most likely love this one as well. As new characters are introduced, others are kind of edged out and you have to get to know them as well.
