This book will revolutionize some of the most important conversations in your life - the ones you have with yourself. Ethan Kross is not only a pioneering psychologist and neuroscientist, but also an extraordinarily gifted writer and storyteller. He shows that instead of trying to silence your monkey mind, you can learn to educate, motivate, and even reason with it.
