The Mind Manual, by Andy Gibson
We rely on our minds for everything we do, but how much do we really know about how our minds work, or how to get the best from them? The Mind Manual aims to change all that. Developed as part of the popular Mindapples campaign and drawing on psychological research and the wisdom of the Mindapples community, this accessible guide covers all the essentials of managing your mind, from looking after your wellbeing to having better relationships, being productive to falling in love. It's a one-stop-shop for making the most of your mind.
Mindapples is an idea that is gaining ground at a time when both professionals and politicians are focusing on people's well-being.--Julie Cross, The Telegraph
Mindapples is a rather lovely thing - a small, social project with no other aim than to promote individual self-management of mental wellbeing.--Maureen Rice, UK launch editor of Psychologies Magazine
A comprehensive and accessible book about how to look after your mind and improve your wellbeing, in collaboration with Mindapples.

From understanding how your own mind works, to making sense of the behaviour of others, this is a practical guide to managing your mind and using it to get the life you want.
