Often, we want to understand the minds of our teenage kids, spouses, colleagues and even suicide bombers. “How can a person think like this?” Sometimes, we feel frustrated about our own mind: “Why can’t I remove this sadness, anxiety or anger from my mind?” Unfortunately, schools taught us about heart, intestine, and kidneys – but not about ‘mind’! This book fills that gap.
It is a compilation of articles from the popular weekly column written by Dr. Shrirang Bakhle that was published in The Free Press Journal.
The book is the result of readers’ demand for it. It has interesting insights about more than 60 facets of the mind such as love and anger, adaptability, loneliness, meditation, addiction, emotions, how emotions influence thinking, how stress affects the mind and what can be done to prevent or reverse these changes.
Although the articles are based on sound scientific principles, they are written in an easy, conversational style – without any jargon.
“The book is clearly written with plenty of useful examples. Readers cannot help but benefit from its contents.” – Dr. Chittaranjan Andrade, Prof. and Head, Department of Psychopharmacology, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Bangalore
