More About the Author
Harvard psychologist and author Dr. Jeff Brown is a champion of cognitive-behavioral psychology. Brown not only walks along side clients who learn to manage inconvenient psychological symptoms, he teaches them how to apply research-based strategies for fine-tuning their brains and optimizing life. He's board-certified in both clinical and cognitive-behavioral psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology.
Outside of his private office, Brown is the psychologist for the Boston, Chicago and Marathon medical teams and is on Runner's World magazine's scientific advisory board. His psychology expertise has been cited by The New York Times, ESPN, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, Woman's Day magazine, FOX News, Family Circle, Boston Magazine, and ABC.com. His witty, yet meaningful messages frequently call him to the podium at various conferences and events across the country.
The Winner's Brain: 8 Strategies Great Minds Use to Achieve Success is Brown's newest book. It blends cutting-edge brain science and cognitive-behavioral psychology, all of which take aim at calibrating the brain for success. (Want to guess whose brain that is on page 12?) Co-authored with neuroscientist colleague Mark Fenske, Ph.D. and writer Liz Neporent, The Winner's Brain is available in over a half-dozen languages. His first book, The Competitive Edge: How to Win Every Time You Compete, props up personal integrity in the midst of fierce competition.

I connected with this book on the very first story called "Give Me a Break" about a girl who kept getting sick because she never took vacations. It was her body's way of forcing her to rest. I was just telling a friend this week that I think that happens to me! I never slow down and take a break until I get sick or one of my kids get sick, forcing me to stay home. After a few days I get caught up on projects and start to feel relaxed, sleep better and just feel better all around. This is just one example of how we have control over our body.
Another story that resonated with me was "A Healing Bedside Manner" in which a man was misdiagnosed with Lupus and lived for eight years with this before getting a new Doctor that took the time to find out what's really wrong with him. All my life I have felt rushed out of the room by Doctors and like I am bothering them by even being there. A couple years ago after moving to Beaumont I got a new Doctor who actually listened to me and spent almost a half hour with me. A Doctor you trust that listens to you is so important to your overall health and well-being.
We have all heard it a hundred times and KNOW it to be true but diet and exercise play a huge roll in our health. When I exercise I crave healthy food and feel better physically. When I don't, the opposite is true.
This is a great group of stories that remind and encourage us to take better care of ourselves and how much power we have to do so.Read more ›

For someone who is looking to change his/her mindset on life and is trying to practice being positive, this would be an ideal tool to start with. It's a quick, easy read and offers inspiration, motivation and sound advice. Dr. Brown points out, `Research suggests that when we therapeutically address anger, negotiate grudges, or forgive someone, we positively affect our health in many ways.' It's never too late to trade pessimism for positivism.
In exchange for an honest review, I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book by Shelton Interactive and Simon and Schuster
