Whose Mind Is It Anyway? Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life

An illustrated guide to making peace with your mind—even when it’s driving you crazy!

By Lisa and Franco Esile
Penguin Random House 2016

In a colorful, funny, and nonthreatening way, it answers the difficult question of how we can take control of our self-defeating behaviors. Filled with charming illustrations, this book will be the friendly voice in your head to counter your negative thoughts, and it will teach you how to finally be at peace with all that you are.

Whose Mind Is It Anyway? will help you learn how to separate what you want from what your brain wants and how to do less when your mind is trying to trick you into doing more.

It’s difficult for me to put into words how much I love Whose Mind Is It Anyway? Lisa and Franco manage to share age-old truths about human life in an unbelievably creative, hilarious, and smart way. The truths they write about are deep and profound, and yet this book is fun, light, and entertaining. I couldn’t more highly recommend it! Dr. Amy Johnson, Psychologist and author of Being Human and The Little Book of Big Change.

Whose Mind is it Anyway is a fun, charming and delightful book that carries a deep healing message for anyone wanting keys to life with ease and inner happiness. It is easy to read and will warm you heart. I will be recommending it to youngsters and adults alike.

I love love love the book … I have shared it with two people at work already and we are planning on using it for our social and individual counseling sessions when we come back to school next year.
