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 am very much a glass half full person while Dear Hubby is more of the glass half empty. He always fusses about his 'luck' when something does not go right. Myself, I try and see what went right in that situation. In all of this, it is not surprising that he ill more often than I ever am. In this newest Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive for Great Health, it helps you see that your mind and body work hand in hand. Each chapter has a few stories in the Chicken Soup fashion. Then it goes on to break down how you can look at each area, work on what needs to be changed and follow through for positive results. For example I fight anxiety all the time. So in Chapter 8, I read the 3 stories of others who do the same. Then after a short introduction there are notes on analyzing anxiety and to make sure you do not just avoid it all together. Instead to change catastrophic thinking and redesign what you need to keep comfortable. Most of all I like that it tells you to say what you mean. Don't dance around an issue. Great advice all the way around.

This was a great book that brought together some great writing on how to work toward the perfect balance of positive thinking and the health benefits that come from this. I have not really read a lot about this, but I was happy to read these stories as I took a lot out of them, and what was even better was the fact that not only do you have first hand accounts of this working in people's lives, but on top of this you get some great medical advice from the author interspersed throughout. Overall the book makes you think of health in a completely different way!

I love all of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books but this one is truly original! I was excited to read about such an interesting topic; how much power our mind has over our health. It's amazing to discover how much control we really do have over our health.

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.

Positive is in the title and it is what comes through each of the stories. It helps to know that you can get through different hardships in life. No one goes through life perfectly. This helps to keep a positive attitude when life gets hard.

This book is a combination of Dr. Brown's common sense methods and personal anecdotes by people who chose to have a positive outlook when things were looking very bleak - an outlook that helped them through trying times. Each chapter has an in-depth look at various topics:
* Your Mind and Your Body: Best Friends for Life
* The Brain Secrets that Healthy People Know
* Hope for the Best and Expect the Best
* Dr. Seuss, Kevorkian or Oz: Connecting with the right Doctor
* Brain Strategies for Robust Living
* Increase Your Health IQ - Now
* Avoid the F-Word: Frustration
* Tame the Anxiety Beast
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.
