It is raining here in Canada’s Capital and it would be a waste if I didn’t curl up to a good book!

This book selection is from blueprint North America Book Club and our members sure know how to pick them!

Ethan Kross explores the importance of the inner voice within our daily lives. If I tell you I talk to myself, you’re likely to write me off as eccentric. But the truth is that we all have a voice in our head. When we talk to ourselves, we often hope to tap into our inner coach but find our inner critic instead. When we’re facing a tough task, our inner coach can buoy us up: “Focus—you can do this”. But, just as often, our inner critic sinks us entirely: “I’m going to fail. They’ll all laugh at me. What’s the use?”

Interweaving groundbreaking behavioral and brain research from his own lab with real-world case studies—from a pitcher who forgets how to pitch, to a Harvard undergrad negotiating her double life as a spy—Kross explains how these conversations shape our lives, work, and relationships.

There is so much covered in this book and I’m not even done yet so I am excited to see where our conversation goes.
