The Mind Game by Devika Das is a powerful self-help book on emotions and much more. The best part of the book is that it is clearly segmented into six important parts which makes it easy to understand and revisit whenever needed.
The central theme of the book plays around ‘emotions’ – the author has slowly but brilliantly guided readers to understand and feel and control emotions. The first section itself is all about emotions: what are they…how to feel and face and protect and control them? Handling emotions is not a commodity thing, rather it requires practice and education. So, this book is bang on education. In all senses, it educates people as how they can heal themselves and self-counsel.
Each chapter first begins with introduction and then some examples and finally it concludes by doling out important points. The language of the book is easy to understand that it becomes an instant learning while reading.
Though all sections are important and help in controlling and managing the emotional side of an individual, the chapters from the first section are fountain of knowledge, for instance ‘Tips to Control Emotions’, ‘How EQ Affects Your Life’, and more.
Second section is about ‘Analysing People’, it has got only two chapters but raw on knowledge and makes one better about questioning and grabbing more on personality and behavioral types.
As the book chugs ahead, it becomes more important to read completely. It turns out to be clearing the doubts for a perfect mind and body approach. Chapters on simple living remind us of the clutter that we have created in our mind and heart owing to a sedentary and gadget-surrounded life. From this section, ‘Emotional Wounds’ is a class discovery. Likewise, the entire book is full of concepts and insights and knowledge notes that many must have not heard in life. It’s, for sure, author Devika Das must have done a tremendous research before penning down this book.
The book is not only about emotions, self-help, or psychology; rather it establishes itself in the cask of subconscious of readers. It is a successful book able to inspire millions of people in the world. The more you talk about this book, the less it is. And at the same time, all cannot be revealed in the review. Hope you understand! Pick up this book and feel the difference in yourself as soon as you complete it.
Writing, grammar, and pace – all is great. Not a moment came when one could feel low or found something redundant. For the people of today, emotions play a larger-than-life role in keeping us motivated and moving, and any groping results in depression. So hope you can understand that reading books that foster mental health are more needed than the multi-vitamin tablets.
