After listening to her words many times I am aware now of many things I wasn't before and of course I feel more calm with the knowledge that this is how everyone is "built".
Dr McGonigal explains in detail, but just insofar as needed, the "default human mode" which causes lots of suffering and she gives us the way out of it by guiding us to being in the "experiencing self" . This is really helpful !
She talks about our old bad habits and how to be able to replace them with new good ones aligned with our values and goals .
Self criticism self vs the self accountability is also a very useful differentiation.
The audiobook has also very good guided meditations that are tools for the implementation of the teachings.
Maybe because this is an audiobook and not a written book many people do not know this wonderful and very helpful information so,
I hope that she could also write a book with her very simple way of explaining things about this same subjects : diminishing suffering, understanding human nature and having compassion with others and with our own selves . What could be more important in life?
Her book "The will power instinct", understanding desires dopamine etc etc...is also very good . I wonder if perhaps the physiology of the "default human mode" has something to do with the physiology of desire explained in that book.
Thanks Dr McGonigal your teachings have helped me a lot!
I'm re-reading TWI and going through TNOC simultaneously, and in a relatively mindful way. The book and the CDs seem to mesh well at two chapters per CD. NOTE: They are not the same material at all, but there is a wonderful interleaving between the techniques described in TWI and the philosophy that permeates TNOC.
Thank you for reading, and thank you, Prof. McGonigal, for writing.
This book is perfect for anyone with a curious mind that really wants to make a change in their life. You'll have no more excuses after reading this book--it's that good!! Prepare to have your life changed and start taking the steps to really face your fears. This is a book for results oriented people--it really works.
