Book Review : You Are Not Your Brain

“You Are Not Your Brain: The 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking, and Taking Control of Your Life” is written by Jeffrey M. Schwartz and Rebecca Gladding. I have listened to the audio version of this book. The book centers around mindful awareness of oneself and accepting so that one does not get dragged down by unhealthy thoughts. This mindfulness has been made  easy with 4 steps, namely,RE-LABEL, RE-FRAME, RE-FOCUS and RE-VALUE. There is discussion of something called as “Wise advocate” which I suppose is conscience.

Rating: 3/5. I found the book useful w.r.t. the description of approaching one’s thoughts through 4 steps.Some where the concepts seem abstract to follow. I found the book to be quiet boring in its tone.
