  • "Should be taught in Primary Schools!"

    Overall

    I can't praise this book enough; Steve Peters narrates his book in a down to earth, practical way, easy to understand for everyone who has any kind of interest in psychology. There are no unpronounceable technical terms, no lengthy ramblings about Jung or Freud - none of that stuff.
    The book is written in simple terms that we can all understand and relate to. It is logically laid out so that each concept, such as your 'chimp', is explained BEFORE he starts talking about how to manage it (by giving it bananas), and how to put it to sleep in its box. He also talks about our goblins and gremlins, realistic and unrealistic expectations of life, and how to manage these.
    I had several 'kerching' moments, when the penny dropped - so simple and obvious, and yet if you don't know what to look for, how can you find it and fix it? Steve Peters takes you through the simple steps you can take to do a 'spring clean' of your thinking and beliefs, and come out the other end a happier, more well balanced person.
    What a tremendous difference it would make to our society if this stuff was taught from Primary School onwards. There'd be far less violence, for one thing, if we were all taught how to manage our 'chimps.'

  • "Gentle, very easy listening"

    Overall

    Mark Williams has a very nice voice, easy to listen to. He narrates in a nice, down to earth way, and you find yourself being drawn along. The book itself has some serious messages and practices, but they sound friendly and do-able when Mr Williams describes them. I actually began to feel better after the first hour of listening, it's very comforting and reassuring. The practices are very simpIe and easy to incorporate into your everyday thinking. I can certainly recommend this for those of us who have had a bit of an emotional battering . . .

    Life can be relentless, frantic and exhausting - but it doesn't have to be this way. This is an introduction to Mindfulness, which reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression.

  • "Very uplifting"

    Overall

    This book may seem a little dated now - it was recorded during the 1980s, I believe - as women's place in the world, and the workplace has greatly changed in the past decade or two. Nevertheless, for those of us born in times of 'a woman's place is in the home' this audio book shows clearly how we were manipulated (by our menfolk, the church, and schools) into believing that there were very few choices for us, and that we would probably fail if we tried anything different. It's very interesting, though, to see how the present situation has evolved, and very useful to women of a certain age who still have self - limiting beliefs and thoughts. Louise Hay has been a favourite of mine for decades, and has helped me through some difficult times. Her manner of speech is gentle, encouraging and gently amusing. Susan Jeffers is rather more brash in manner, but amusing, and makes some very interesting points. Susan Jeffers pinpoints how thought processes affect the body (she's a medical doctor), which is useful to know. The 4th lady (who isn't credited) is actually a more spiritual person, not to everyone's taste perhaps, but she has some valid points to make if you can overlook some of her more unusual views. I would certainly recommend this book, if nothing else it's very encouraging and positive.
    PS for those younger ladies who have been caught up in the 1950s hype that's gripped the UK lately, you might learn a lot about how life REALLY was for those stay at home mums, and the attitudes of their husbands.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Why is it easier to ruminate over hurt feelings than it is to bask in the warmth of being appreciated? Because your brain evolved to learn quickly from bad experiences but slowly from the good ones. You can change this. Hardwiring Happiness lays out a simple method that uses the hidden power of everyday experiences to build new neural structures full of happiness, love, confidence, and peace. Dr. Hanson's four steps build strengths into your brain, balancing its ancient negativity bias, making contentment and a powerful sense of resilience the new normal.

    In this audiobook, I discuss the "social sense", which is triggered by interaction with other people. I define a sense as something that can cause either: discomfort or pleasure to a person. Interaction with some people will trigger pleasure to the social sense, while interaction with other people will trigger discomfort. In this audiobook, I explain social situations under the context of the "social sense" that, otherwise, would be difficult or impossible to explain.
