The Mind Coach
by Jamil Qureshi.
Another self-development book, perhaps lots of ideas you have heard before. But one of Jamil’s opening comments is “Most self-help books and programmes don’t work very well.” A somewhat loaded and negative statement! So why is this book different?
Much of the difference is in the delivery. Jamil’s Mind Mapping concept is a very positive, common sense approach to life. Here, the emphasis is on making just a tiny change at a time, unlike other books and programmes which, he says, encourage you to initiate major lifestyle changes.
The book is very easy to read and is littered with real-life examples that are easy to relate to. You are also encouraged to dip in and out of the book, rather than ‘make sure you read this from cover to cover’ and to treat it somewhat irreverently! This means using highlighters, scribbling notes, even tearing out pages!
Well worth reading.
