    I'm not that far in yet, but Dweck is a positive psychology researcher who explores fixed mindsets vs. growth mindsets.
    I'm going down the rabbit hole with positive psychology.
    This will be my 5th book on the subject this year. The others include:

    Happiness by Ed Deiner
    Flourish by Martin Seligman
    What you can change and what you can't by Martin Seligman
    The How of Happiness by Sonia Lyubomirsky

    Try Psychology of Hope by Rick Snyder.

    Quantum Change by William Miller (not quite positive psych, but change psych, which is somewhat similar...cog-beh).

    I felt like this was just so atmospheric and vivid, even without much happening it was excellent.

    It’s easy reading and has actually helped me out a little.

    So...it is good? Every time I see the title, it makes me think of Albert Ellis (and what he said about that word) and it makes me laugh a bit.

    I'm a sucker for a good graphic novel (or any story) that's high fantasy or D&D related. This is based off of a podcast though, which is hilarious to listen to.

    I finished these two this week. Nothing to see here and the Editor.
    Just started Wives, but I'm not hooked yet.

    Finished a graphic novel that made me cry (touching story in the end), and moved on to some more non-fiction. Despite the title, the book is actually about gerrymandering and was written a few years ago, before the 2016 election.

    It gave me a different way to view things. Some of the views really caught my attention and other parts was meh. Over all though I enjoyed reading it.

    I think I'm going to feel that way about what I'm reading now. Heal Your Headaces: 1-2-3 Program for Taking Charge of Your Pain by David Buchholz.

    Some what he says makes sense and is what I've heard from other docs in the past year or two (like...many painkillers result in rebound headaches...Yup, that's why I usually just suck it up). Some seems a bit propaganda-y; Rah rah! This has helped so many people!

    And some sounds like one of the teachers at Cleaveland Chiropractic..."oh, I had this patient with a lazy eye and three rows of teeth and...and when I adjusted her back, her eye moved to the right place and started seeing properly and all the extra teeth fell out [my comment: hopefully not all at once!] and her life was changed forever!" My brother went there years...true story.

    And that is the first 25 pages. It is older, 2002, so some of the pharmacutical info is off (Midrin/Duradrin are now banned in the US; Meclazine is now commonly prescribed for vertigo, Zofran for nausea, etc). But outside of that, it might be helpful for people with chronic headaches, like me. We'll see.

    ***Note: Not dissing all chiropractors, just the nutty ones.

    She's pretty good. I think I've read that one. If you haven't read Jennifer Cruisie, try her. She's awesome!
