Dave Mitchell, the author of The Power of Understanding People, turns his focus inward to help you understand yourself. He says if you tap into “metacognition” – the process of “thinking about thinking” – you can go beyond self-awareness to discover why you develop certain behaviors and to realize your potential. He sets you on this journey of self-discovery with an “interactive style” assessment, worksheets and exercises. Mitchell’s humorous, comforting self-revelations align with his philosophy of charitable self-analysis. His easy, self-improvement guidelines are encouraging, but not preachy or didactic. Some chapters rehash material from his previous book, but those seeking personal growth will enjoy his refreshing, readable and innovative approach.
