Tao of the Mind is both thought provoking as well as convicting at times. The author has obviously spent a lot of time thinking about his topic. His idea of 'Comfort Brain' versus 'Thinking Brain', 'Feeling Brain', and 'Creative Brain' is right on. He says that we need to stop going on auto-pilot, allowing our 'Comfort Brain' to be in control and instead really live, facing that which makes us uncomfortable and dealing with it. He also gives ways to snap out of 'Comfort Brain'.
The word 'Tao' actually means 'way' or 'flow'. The author discusses ways in which we can be in charge of our thinking and acting, rather than letting our cells dictate our lives for us. He says that fear isn't necessarily what drives us, rather, it is avoiding discomfort. When we face that which makes us uncomfortable, we can actually change our lives.
The content of the book is very good, however, it is in need of editing. That said, how much can you really complain when the price is only .99?

In Tao of the Mind, Joseph Dowdy explores the Yin and Yang of our body's cells which are the driving forces of our beings and how we can use certain techniques to guide them into getting what we really want from life. It is written in a very "easy to understand" style and anyone can take something useful away by reading it. It put a whole new concept before me. I found the portion about addictions especially helpful. Tao of the Mind is on my Recommended reading list. --Sara Marie Hogg, author of Blade Chatter, Catho Darlington and five other books
