Harnessing the Windmills of the Mind

Author: Abraham Thomas

Publisher: Leadstart Publishing

Price: ₹299

There are multitudes of inspirational books available — but have you ever come across one that incorporates computer algorithms and artificial intelligence? That’s exactly what this book, based on the author’s Effective Mind Control website, does. Drawing parallels to algorithmic processes, it covers both physical and mental exercises for situations of shyness, stress, jealousy, boredom, fear, guilt, and anger, among others. The book also breaks down concepts such as courage, humour, forgiveness, and gratitude, going by the guiding rule of ‘know thyself’.
