The twenty-first century has brought with it numerous technological advancements but not without its dark and dangerous side.
Most self-help books deal with specific topics like health, habits, and mindset. Today, ReadersMagnet Review takes a closer look at a unique self-help book by Eddie Naylor entitled How To Keep Your Mind While Everyone Else’s is Being Blown Apart.
Twenty-First Century: The Prize and the Price
It is no doubt that the twenty-first century is providing us with technology for a convenient life. The early years of the 21st century gave us ultrasound, genetic engineering, the proliferation of mobile devices, increased access to the internet, medical breakthroughs, and various scientific discoveries that allow us to communicate better, to create new things, increase production, and to better our way of life. However, the twenty-first century also paved the way for civil wars, acts of terrorism, biological warfare, rise in the poverty rate, and other economic blunders. Today, we are seeing a high suicide rate, depression, and anxiety. Now more than ever, we are faced with unprecedented issues in economics, politics, and world health. In short, we live both in interesting and dangerous times.
How to Keep Your Sanity in a Crazy World
How To Keep Your Mind While Everyone Else’s is Being Blown Apart is a self-help book by author Eddie Naylor. For Naylor, living in the twenty-first is living in a world full of risks, challenges, frustrations, and full of stressful new problems. They are scattered over like landmines waiting to blow our minds. Eddie Naylor’s book promises to help us cope with the present-day society by tapping our “secret unique inner powers” and “life energy potential” locked inside our selves, giving us an advantage. This edge is said to help us develop a “proactive” state of mind that will give us the power to dominate over these so-called land mines. How To Keep Your Mind While Everyone Else’s is Being Blown Apart aims to empower its readers and transform their minds for success, happiness, and peace. More importantly, this mindset teaches readers to have full control of their lives, especially during these times where every decision we make is almost based on misinformation, anxiety, paranoia, and pressures from social media.
Another highlight of Naylor’s book is it recognizes the reality that while technological advancements are supposedly here to make our lives convenient, they also contribute to the lackadaisical, disinterestedness, and apathy of today’s generation. Most of the population today rely on mobile phones, the internet, and other digital devices that human connectivity is fast becoming a lost art. That is the reason why How To Keep Your Mind While Everyone Else’s is Being Blown Apart is very relevant for today’s readers. The book is not limited to the individual’s self-improvement but also covers the current state of our world and how we can help better our community by becoming better individuals.
