The Mind Game by Devika Das – Book Review

The Mind Game



Crests and troughs, ups and downs, joys and sorrows are a part of everyone’s lives. While many choose to simply succumb to bad times, the winner is the one who remains strong, successfully wades off negativity and rises, unbound. All of us, at some point of time, have experienced situations involving emotional outbursts where we have, albeit unknowingly, hurt others or even our own self and have only ended up regretting our actions. Wouldn’t it be great if we could somehow become mindful of our current emotional state and maintain equilibrium in our personal and professional lives? Moreover, mindfulness helps us realise what we really want from life. It helps us to first think, then act and not vice-versa. The Mind Game is a self-improvement guide that talks about how to manage emotions wisely, and lead a powerful, but stress free life.

Book Review:

It is said that it’s all in the mind. It is only us who can tame our minds to lead a happy and fulfilling life. The Mind Game is one such book that motivates its readers to live a successful life. It tells us in a very simplistic yet effective manner how to deal with the things that control us or hold us back (like emotions, people, anger, etc.) from moving ahead.

The Mind Game is a self help book but it is not at all preachy. Everything is explained in a very scientific manner with the help of several theories. I like books based on philosophy and this is one such book which is a product of a thorough research.

The author has also used various illustrations to explain her points in the book, which have added to the beauty of the book. The book is not only for people with spiritual bent of mind or for those who are seeking emotional help. This book is something that can help everyone with daily routine and chores of life. It has several tips to improve the quality of our daily work as well as our personal emotions.

The language used by in the book is lucid and easy to follow. The motivating and valuable thoughts are real gems and if followed, can be great help to deal with life in a better manner.

I loved the small quotations used by the author in the book which the read all the more interesting. The chapters are also short and crisp that contribute in holding the interest of the readers. The readers get connected with the book very easily due to the simple language.

Overall, I liked the book a lot and would recommend it to all. I would give it 4 stars on a scale of 5.
