5 Star Review

I received this book from the touring host for an honest review.
This is not your ordinary read: this book really makes you think about a lot of things that is happening in your life and things that has happened. It is about our brain, and how it has been hijacked by the media, advertisement and cultural mindsets. We have allowed Hollywood to dictate to us and after awhile we start living what has been said or shown to us on the screen.  The author has done extensive research and presented quite a few examples in everyday life to support her findings. This is very powerful information, as we read and see how the brain has been program to think like the world likes you to think, but the good news is that it can be un- programmed of the bad thinking and reprogrammed with the right stuff. There are quite some remarkable examples and it makes you wonder why only now. This is a book to help you look differently to your brain: that organ that sits between your ears, so if you are really interested in getting your mind reprogrammed then this is a good book to read.

Well done Nekesa Ouma-Namulu this is a well written, thought provoking read and user manual I can go back to often. You certainly opened my eyes.

About The Author
Nekesa Ouma-Namulu describes herself as a 'true citizen of the world,' having the privilege of calling many places home. She was born and brought up in Nairobi, the capital of that picturesque nation on Africa's eastern coast, and moved to London where marriage and career made Europe her second home for almost two decades. Her career as a Computer Networking Systems consultant, which included a year with Cisco Systems, saw her spend many happy hours in data centres all over the world, fiddling with fibre-optic cables plugged to huge data switches alight with dozens of different blinking lights. Work saw her set up camp in Mexico City, Seoul and most recently Paris, which led her to conclude, "no-one does a strike quite so thoroughly as the French." Nekesa has published a computing book, which sits happily next to others in UK libraries, as well as a children's fable. Today, Nekesa and her family split time between homes in Kenya, Spain and the UK.

About The Book


If you've ever wondered why...
*dating and relationship advisors are so fixated on 'make-overs' (your online profile, your wardrobe, your face, your conversation skills)?
*prosperity gurus are so bent on you 'fixing' yourself? *some of the most beautiful people never find love and many of the most intelligent ones never make good money?
*people with disadvantages identical to yours are so hugely successful? *and finally, why 'idiots' do so well?
...you need to read this book.
The answer, is hidden in plain sight. With unparalleled clarity the book reveals the single common denominator behind the new wave of personal success stories that is sweeping across the globe.
