Book Review
My take on the book
Overall Rating
Readability Score
I listened to this book in my car several times. It is easily one of my all-time favorites to date. This book is practical and understandable for anyone to read. Understanding how your brain deals with away and towards responses, how the SCARF model works and how to overcome distractions, worries and nagging thoughts, is extremely useful. I recommend this to anyone seeking to make more sense of the world and more specifically sense of your own brain (and mind).
