Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wished you could reprogram your brain, just as a hacker would a computer? In this three-step guide to improving your mental habits, learn to take charge of your mind and banish negative thoughts, habits, and anxiety - in just 21 days!

A seasoned author, comedian, and entrepreneur, Sir John Hargrave once suffered from unhealthy addictions, anxiety, and poor mental health. After cracking the code to unlocking his mind's full and balanced potential, his entire life changed for the better. In Mind Hacking, Hargrave reveals the formula that allowed him to overcome negativity and eliminate mental problems at their core.

Through a 21-day, three-step training program, this book lays out a simple yet comprehensive approach to help you rewire your brain and achieve healthier thought patterns for a better quality of life. It hinges on the repetitive steps of analyzing, imagining, and reprogramming to help break down barriers preventing you from reaching your highest potential.

By treating your brain as a computer and mastering Hargrave's mind hacking formula, you, too, can create a positive, permanent shift in your thinking, leading to personal and professional triumphs in all areas of life.

Very good useful information

The book is good and has very useful information. if you're like me you listen to books on the go. The last few chapters you need to listen to alone when you can quiet your mind and the area around you. the last 21 chapters of the 37 are dedicated to doing mind relaxation techniques. That wasn't always possible for me listening in the car and on my phone at work. But overall this book could change the way you think of everything in a positive way. I recommend this book!

Smart, funny, insightful and practical.

What about John Hargrave’s performance did you like?

The author's narration is perfect.

Any additional comments?

Most of the critical reviews seem to be posted by people who didn't finish the book. This is unfortunate. The author offers interesting models for explaining why people think and behave the way they do followed by a 21-day program to help "rewire" thought patterns and behaviors. And the information is delivered with a lot of humor and wit. Well worth a listen.

Its too slow and feels like it just doesnt get to the point

I am listening to the audio version, i'm in chapter five, and cant take it anymore. I am done.

I think the author is well intentioned and this may work for some, but I dont think it ever gets to the point. It just kind of rambles and seems to just give analogy after analogy, all seems general.

Its possible I stopped too soon, but I am looking for some instructions sooner rather than later.

Mind hacking or mind numbing?

Whomever told this guy he should write a book... & then whomever thought it was a good idea to publish it please get out of the writing/publishing business.

The majority of this book is a waste of time. You can get more information from a 30 class on Transcendental meditation than you can from the hours & hours wasted on this book.

All the useless backstory to try to make this seem like he invented something new makes you want your money back. Sadly the writer/narrator tries too hard to be funny & just makes you want to start in with a huge bong rip just to see if this book is salvageable... I assure you, it's not.

I'm so thankful I got this on a 2 for 1 special.

If you want to reset your mind & learn new habits try Mindfulness or Transcendental meditation.

Mind hacking? Where?

I was excited to listen this book to find out how to change my way of thinking but I did NOT get that! I got one hour in and I can't force myself to continue listening for the rest of the TWELVE HOURS! First of all, 12 hours is far too long, second, in the first hour I didn't learn anything about "mind hacking". By the one hour mark there should be at least some real content. I've stopped listening because the first hour is spent talking about technology and the history of hacking computers... that's not why I'm here. There's way too many background stories and tangents that the book could do without. I'm sure there is some great stuff in here but I'm not willing to sift through unnecessary side-notes to get them.

Basically, I got this book for the meat and potatoes and all I got was broccoli...

Don't Bother, Waste of Time

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Originality

Would you ever listen to anything by John Hargrave again?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of John Hargrave’s performances?

Absolutely not

What character would you cut from Mind Hacking?

Only one?

Any additional comments?

This is a combination of sleazy car salesman and broad generalities. A complete waste of time, and I feel dumber for having listened to the 20 minutes I did.

Loving this method!

I just went with the program and it is so helpful. The 21 I completed with ease. The concentration excersizes are great and simple meditations which are easy to do and a joy. Hargrave's voice is enthousiastic and therefore he really pulls you in them. Awesome stuff!

Welcomed like life itself

Thank you Sir John Hargreaves.
I came across this book via Audible books. My intention was to listen and learn while on a beach holiday and change the way my very active and out of control mind worked. This book has lead me to other positive books that have given me full control of how I think and has enabled me to think what I really want out of my life. I am 47 years old with two beautiful children, Amy who is 27 and Keith who is 24. Amy gave me and her Mum and grandson New Year’s eve 2016. The love is unconditional for them. Thanks to mind hack I now have the faith and belief that I will give us the life I have dreamt of all my adult life. Thanks again John for jump starting my dreams back alive and helping me to have the faith and believe that I able to achieve them and also deserve them.
Yours faithfully
Chris

life changing!

Fabulous help to make real.positive changes for the good. Not just wishy washy thinking but guided positive thinking and action planning. I have already felt the benefits in just the 21 days for the problem I had in mind and now plan to start over with the next goal I want to achieve:)
