Feedback on the first Chapter

Prevention - “Prevent Chaos - It hurts less”

I have received some interesting feedback for my last book, Chaos in Brainland. Some have written chapter summaries to help themselves, which could be an excellent adjunct to the book. Everyone has different needs and will interpret text from the book in different ways.

If you have the book, here is one add-on for the first chapter; more may follow.

If you haven’t got the book, the ebook version is free on Amazon for members of Amazon Unlimited.

The paperback is on Amazon for about $29 -


The reader mentioned he would have liked to see a chapter summary and mind workout after chapter one.
Okay, that’s fair enough. If I republish the book, I will do that. I may even change the book title; apparently, not everyone liked the concept of ‘Brainland’.

The first note he made was about learning and practising techniques to minimise anxiety. He had practised relaxation techniques half-heartedly but nothing else. And yes, to stress that point, learning techniques to overcome anxiety is like learning to think in a whole different way, which can only be achieved with prolonged practice. Obviously, that can only work when one is motivated and not directly suffering an anxiety attack. - He added that under what he can control. 

  1. He can’t control his anxiety, but he felt he could control what to do instead (part of the replacement concept) in his case, to concentrate his mind on how to train dogs. 
  2. His second note was a question. What else am I good at controlling?
  3. He loved the idea of starving anxiety of its power and using it for positive action. He noticed he had empowered anxiety by constantly thinking about it. That’s logical, of course, as that is what anxiety is basically. His solution was again dog training, showing, and competing. Later, I found out he didn’t even have a dog yet. He wanted to buy a dog, groom and train it, learn about it, and prepare for competitions. He wanted to emerge into that world.
  4. What are the warning signs before anxiety strikes? He never knew why he suffered from anxiety. He wants to become aware of the anxiety before it starts, with the idea of stopping it before it fully hits you.
  5. He got all that from the introduction, even though he mentioned he had quickly read the whole book and only after that had made up his mind to read it slowly again.
  6. He adopted the idea of prevention, and his first step was to buy a dog to put his power, love, and attention into learning and applying. He planned to write a journal, documenting his progress with text and pictures.
  7. Replacement Concept: He liked that and, again, wanted to buy a dog. But he made it his task to develop a few more strong habits, hobbies, or topics within his field of interest.

He had mentioned that he had trouble visualising instead of feeling, but he had taken up the habit of looking up when his mind went into negativity or worry. Looking up helped him concentrate and visualise his dog training goal. 

That was it. I have shortened it; it was a long email.

Caution: don’t race out and buy a dog; that was his goal; we are all different and will need different approaches.
