This is a book about Universal Truth, or, rather, it’s a book of Universal Truths turned into usable information. (Are you ready?)

Whose Mind Is It Anyway? tells readers there are seven ways our minds trick us into being unhappy. The FIRST misbelief: Our Minds KNOW! The PROOF: We invented self-flushing toilets, didn’t we! COUNTER ARGUMENT: Your mind is a computer. It judges and oversimplifies. It’s not wise. So where does WISDOM come from? You’ll have to read the book to find out. After that, readers are asked to imagine their thoughts as a bunch of grapes and their brains as a freight train.

You’re thinking you’re not ready, but you are. The lively, inventive illustrations in the book make it easy to keep turning the pages. Before you know it, you'll be standing up to your self-defeating behaviors and telling your brain to chill—and smiling ear-to-ear as you do.
