The little voice in our head is much more powerful than we may realize. It can make the difference between whether a baseball player strikes someone out and whether he chokes on the mound. It's the undercurrent to our daily lives; the context through which we filter the world. And how we talk to ourselves can affect our relationships, moods, and sense of self. Drawing from science and examples from his own and others' lives--including a professional pitcher and a former CIA agent--Kross shows why this internal voice is so important, how it can help us, and how it can hurt us, too. For anyone and everyone who's found themselves caught in a negative thought spiral, mentally run-through an awkward interaction over and over, or wanted to know how they could do a better job of helping a friend through a tough time, this book is revelatory.
