really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction, self-help

The first few chapters were interesting, the last half of the book was gold. Essentially, David Rock details all the things that happen in our brain at work (all based on the latest research about the brain) and comes up with credible explanations not just for why we get distracted and overwhelmed at work but also why our interactions with others can so easily throw us into spaces of threat and fear.

My only question is whether we can simply change these patterns by knowing about them. Would it be harder for some people than others?

But then again, if you're reading a book like this, you are probably someone accustomed to changing and improving the way you think on a regular basis anyway, right?
