Letting Go for Fun & Profit: How Advances in Neuroscience Inspire Change by Mary Sommerset MA CPC, Jean Stoll MPH CHES

Letting go is not usually associated with fun, or profit for that matter. Yet, this little book provides tools for letting go of resistance by embracing the discoveries in brain science. No longer stuck in academic journals or science books, the eye-opening research in Neuroplasticity is rocking our world.

This book is for women and men facing obstacles to their success. It's a non-threatening way to dive into neuroscience to see how brain imaging has given us new pictures of how we operate, and the very good news of how much easier it is, than we previously thought, to change the circuitry in our brains for a better life AT ANY AGE!

In fact, there is scientific proof showing how attitude change CAN be effective and permanently hard-wired into your brain. How does that work? Many neuroscientists agree that 2-3 months of training the brain through consistent affirmations, visualizations, and thoughts, can result in behavior change. This little book contains such activities to train the brain that are fun and fulfilling. You can pick the book up anytime you are feeling less than perfect and want a change.

As this book illustrates, letting go at any age can be an enjoyable process, a lightness stolen from pain with humor. Also, overcoming resistance will put you on the path to profit, which means to move forward, gain, reap any kind of advantage, financial or otherwise. In the best-selling book, The Answer, thousands of businesses benefited from understanding the answer was each person who read the book. You are the answer. You can learn to let go of resistances that are keeping you down. And you can have fun in the process.

Reviewed by Mary DeKok Blowers for Readers' Favorite If you have ever thought, “I’m stuck with my life” or “it’s too hard to get what I want,” where did these assumptions come from? “Letting Go for Fun & Profit” offers a layman’s guide to neuroplasticity and how it benefits your life. This daunting term refers to the ability of our marvelous brains to change in response to circumstances and attitudes. But this book does not read like a medical journal. Instead, it offers real, practical, and fun ways to improve your attitude with far-reaching effects on your health, career, and enjoyment of life. Mary Sommerset and Jean Stoll, both highly credentialed, outline stages of change and give activity plans at the end of every chapter for achieving it. After reading "Letting Go For Fun & Profit", I asked myself, “What can I achieve now?” This book creates anticipation of realizing one’s dreams. The easy action steps listed break mental mountains down into manageable pieces. It is a quick and enjoyable read, but once is not enough. I could not put it down all weekend and made lots of notes to incorporate into my own life. I will enjoy working through it a second time and doing the steps. Reputable sources gave me confidence in the material as well as ideas for supplementary material I would like to read. If you have any regrets about your life, feeling it has passed you by, or just have goals you are not sure how to achieve, this book is for you.

“A must read for people who feel that they cannot change their lives. Sommerset and Stoll bring the complex field of neuroplasticity to a level and understanding that we can all embrace. What a great reminder of how to rediscover our strengths and what makes us happy. Not a book to read just once, but every time we forgot what is important and how to be good to ourselves. Great writing; even greater stories." Clifford J. Steer, M.D. Professor of Medicine and Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development University of Minnesota Medical School Minneapolis, MN 55455
