Review

"How our bodies and minds work in tandem. Wide-ranging, informative and entertaining, especially for parents and educators." ― Kirkus

Best ofall is the scientifically grounded advice on everything from helping kids learnbetter to becoming a happier person. This book will expand your mind and makeyour life better." -- Jean Twenge

"Through vivid stories and clear explanations,Beilock reveals how our bodies shape our thoughts and actions in surprising andcompelling ways. It's rare to find a first-class scientist who is also afirst-class writer; Beilock, lucky for us, is both." -- Annie Murphy Paul, author of Origins

How the Body Knows Its Mind is a journey inthe direction less traveled: from body to brain, rather than the reverse,illuminating the surprising ways that our physical actions can change ourminds. From “laughter yoga” to Botox as a treatment for depression, to theimportance of finger dexterity for learning math, Beilock charts a wondroustour through the mind-body connection.” -- David Epstein, author of The Sports Gene

"Insightful, informative, and beautifully written, How the Body Knows Its Mind is a smart surprise that you won't want to miss!" -- Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness

“A very interesting and useful book. I recommend it!” -- Carol Dweck, author of Mindset

"How often do you read a book that is profound and also fun -- or that is full of surprises, but that also gives you that pleasant jolt of immediate recognition? Do a big favor for your body and your mind. Read Beilock's terrific book as soon as you can!" -- Cass R. Sunstein, Robert Walmsley University Professor, Harvard University, and coauthor of Nudge

“Beilock reveals one intriguing secret after another… That Beilock is supercharged with enthusiasm about her topic is evident and infectious.” ― Booklist STARRED review

How the Body Knows Its Mind is a tour de force that teaches us the revolutionary new science of how our own physical interaction with the world around us strongly influences our ability to learn and perform. I highly recommend it.” -- Michael Lardon M.D., author of Mastering Golfs Mental Game and Finding Your Zone
