A powerful tool

This book is a must read for anyone who would benefit from help in managing their 'monkey chatter' and anxiety. I believe that this would include most of us at some stage of our lives. Also what I loved about the book was the fact you had actual tools you could implement on your own straight away. These skills could also be passed on to friends and family. The MP3 anxiety buster is a game changer. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

Master your monkey

Some great life advice included in this book. Helpful tools to control anxiety and the monkey chatter. Found the case studys a little boring, bit of an unnecessary time filler.

Great listen!

Excellent audiobook that I listened to everyday while travelling to and from work. Very accessible for someone just becoming aware of their own inner monkey. I found Don's work hugely beneficial - especially when dealing with negative internal chatter. Listening to Don really added to the personal resonance of the teachings and I would recommend it to anyone looking to gain more control over their mind.

A Fantastic read for people from all ages and backgrounds!!

I’m writing this review from a cafe in Bolivia funnily enough and I would firstly like to express my deepest thanks to Don, for having written this book ‘How to master your Monkey Mind’. I found the content of the audiobook and how you broke down the tools of how to counteract the inner thoughts in our brain (monkey chatter) extremely fascinating, insightful and personally helpful.

I’m currently towards the end of 3 months of post university travelling around South America. During my travels I have used some of the techniques when I have found myself in pockets of stress in between periods of great fun! These stressors mainly revolve around trouble sleeping (new climates I think) and periods of stress around constant uncertainty (where is the next hostel? Where does the bus leave from? What did he or she say, I can’t speak or understand Spanish!)

Whilst this book may have not improved my Spanish, I found the Zen breathing and Better sleep exercises tremendously helpful as I used them on the long bus journeys before arriving at my next destination! Thank you for this!

10 out 10 would recommend to anyone interested in gaining more control over their mind and inner thoughts!

Very Useful Resource

I love this recording. Very practical and simple without being simplistic. I have learnt a great deal from this audiobook and I am already using the Zen Breathing exercise each day - sometimes several times a day! Love the sound of Don's voice and i look forward to listening to the guided relaxation and visualisation exercise each day. Don has a very soothing voice. I often drop off before I reach the end of the exercise! Thoroughly recommend this!

Great book

Don’s book contains up to date information to help everyone.
Zen breathing, the Kaizen and excellent case studies.
Neurobics, the importance of avoiding accidental mind coaches and how to go from worrier to warrior. His personalised MP3s are great too. Many thanks Don! Kate
