It’s been awhile since my last book review, as I've read three books since The Education of Henry Adams. I thought I’d condense three reviews all into one post and give my quick hit thoughts on each.
Mind over Mind: The Surprising Power of Expectations
How I heard about it: Fiancee’s Mom
Why I read it: The concept over “mind over matter” is neither new nor sophisticated. I’m almost positive that even 1950s high school PE teachers knew this cliché. Berdik, though, presents this philosophy in an evidence-heavy read that convincingly argues the benefit of controlling one’s thoughts. Although the book is not intended as a sermon, a reader gets the sense that the content of the book needs to be acted on.
