Thumbs up for Mindhacker: 60 Tips, Tricks, and Games to Take Your Mind to the Next Level by Ron Hale-Evans. Psychology.
Sometimes I want to write reviews that are essentially: if you’re the kind of person to whom this book sounds interesting, you should read it, because it is a really excellent version of what it says it is. Inevitably (having an interest in psychology in general and in improving brain performance in specific) I was familiar with some of the stuff in here, but it’s still an absolute treasure trove cram-packed with actionable processes to do such diverse things as easily learn to fingerspell, visualize four-dimensional objects, generate pseudorandom numbers in your head, psych yourself into a good mood, or up your scholar stats by getting a university library card even if you aren’t a student. Sound good? It is good.
Thus, if you feel as if the walls are closing in on you (your world is getting smaller and nastier), you can take a semantic pause (Hack 57, “Take a Semantic Pause”) and first assess your situation for “basic need emergencies” with the mnemonic HALT: Have you let yourself become too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired?
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
