From the Back Cover

Simple and scientific solutions to overcome unhealthy thinking

"Dr. Caroline Leaf is a brilliant and prolific communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist. With over thirty years in research and study, she delves into Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess with these five simple steps to help reduce our anxieties, stress, and toxic thinking. There is no better time to introduce these strategies than now."--Bishop T. D. Jakes, New York Times bestselling author

"Caroline's new book is a lovely chance for us to learn a new modality of healing. The techniques taught in Caroline's work have allowed me to work on myself in new ways that allow me to be more calm, clear, and compassionate."-- Jonathan Van Ness, Emmy-nominated television personality, hairstylist, self-care guru, New York Times bestselling author, and host of the Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness podcast

"For years I've taught leaders to guard their thinking above all else in life, because how a leader thinks determines what a leader will accomplish. Healthy discipline of the mind is essential for success in life, and Dr. Caroline Leaf provides a five-step roadmap for developing truly helpful mental discipline. Her new book, Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess, is rooted in decades of research and shows how the journey to healthier thinking is shorter than you might think--and available to anyone willing to take it."--Dr. John C. Maxwell, leadership and personal growth expert

"One of the things I love about Caroline is her help in understanding the difference in our 'brains' and our 'minds.' In this book she takes us the next step in making both of them work better, leading us to feeling and performing better. Thanks, Caroline."--Dr. Henry Cloud, New York Times bestselling author and clinical psychologist

"Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess is a powerful new book that can change your life. Learning how to manage your mind is a critical skill that should be taught in school, yet rarely is. This book can help decrease suffering and help your overall outlook and mood. I highly recommend it."--Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder of Amen Clinics and author of The End of Mental Illness

This book is really repetitive and not at all helpful for implementation of the 5-step technique. Examples would have been more helpful. Really disappointing.
