Self Defence for the Mind!

I have finally published my book: Self Defence for the Mind, in Kindle format on Amazon!

SDFMMy motivation, back in 2011, was to write a Zen philosophy book that would be enjoyable to read and more importantly would make sense to anyone. This is a far cry from many of the mystical, obscurely written, and frankly boring books I have read on the subject!

SDFM  is divided up in 10 chapters.

Chapter 1 discusses Stress and introduces the reader to techniques for managing it and later, learning to use it to grow.

Chapter 2 tackles happiness and how to build a kind that lasts.

Chapter 3 discusses the tricky subject of emotions and how we can influence them for the betterment of life.

Chapter 4 introduces a concept called New Eyes, by which we change our view of the world by changing ourselves, and vice versa.

Chapter 5 talks about Coexistence, and how by understanding others we enrich our view of life, and how by understanding ourselves we can avoid the pitfalls that await the unmindful.

Chapter 6 is the centrepiece of the book, teaching the reader how to be Spontaneous.

Chapter 7 delves into personality and how by understanding ours, we can avoid the problems that come from the dark side of our persona.

Chapter 8 builds on understanding gained in the last chapter to set a map for self growth, personalised to the reader.

Chapter 9 wraps up the book and Chapter 10 contains all the references for continued inspiration and development.

The book is 222 pages long; you can preview it for free (you get all of Chapter 1 and some of Chapter 2), either by using the Amazon ‘Look Inside’ option, or by getting a sample sent to your Kindle or PC here: UK, USA.

You can also find it by typing ‘Self Defence for the Mind’ into the search tab.

I would be most grateful for any feedback, particularly comments on the Amazon page (you need to have bought something, not necessarily my book!).

    Congratulations! I tried to ‘like’ your post, but for a stupid reason (electricity went off and so did my internet connection…) the button didn’t work and is since frozen in that not working condition.
    I had no internet or even laptop anymore for quite a while, so I have missed a lot of your posts at the time you published them, sorry for that. When my backlog of other work diminishes, I’ll hopefully get some time to go through them – and even perhaps comment.

    After my comment above was finally posted, the ‘Like’ button worked again, as you can see…! Which makes sense, after all.
