I had the opportunity to meet the author at an event in the DC area earlier this year. Finding her thoughts to be particularly insightful, I read her book—and I’m glad I did. With an undergraduate background in psychology, I found it really interesting. Amita separates out 3 mental states: The 1D mind--driven by basic needs, the 2D mind--driven by thoughts and analysis, and the The 3D mind--driven by perspective. More than just teaching readers about the differences there between, Amita illustrates how to most effectively navigate BETWEEN these states of mind. To date, I have spent much of my time in the 2D mindset but, after reading this book, that is something I will be working on!
