“The aim of this book/manual is to help the reader to simply begin to understand him or herself, to take a good look at the resulting fruits – the quality of life that she or he experiences, and to decide with clarity, whether that is the person they have thought to be or intend to be.

To take control and be in charge.

Once fully aware of all the psychological mechanisms at play, the reader is equipped with necessary skills, techniques, and strategies to help effectively rewrite established neural pathways, create new thinking patterns, and auto response modes.

This simply means that the reader is then able and capable of making any changes that they wish in the way that they see the world and themselves, and how any event or experience in life impacts them.

Making sense of the story of our past experiences and of who we are today, enables us to develop a clear sense of direction in life and how to get there with a new sense of resilience and motivation.

Included in the book there are just under 300 pages of daily exercises scientifically proven to help build confidence and self-esteem for almost any age.”

    I think the general population is still in much darkness, when it comes to the science of the mind. This book goes a long way in shedding some essential light on the matter. It’s both fascinating and encouraging to learn of the reasons that we see, think, feel, experience, and behave the way we do in life.Absolutely love the ‘windows of perception’! A very empowering and liberating tool!This is no ordinary self-help book. It is a psychological training manual that gives you the right tools and skills to be free to be YOU.I highly recommend!

    For a while now, I’d been walking around feeling quite lost with the world, always looking at the negatives. But always a deep longing to be happy, to feel confident, to just find my spark back. I always knew that psychology had something to do with it and this book caught my eye.Well, I was not wrong! Going through the book (hard to put down), at first, It was a realization as to how unhappy I had been for so long. Then came the understanding – the ‘whys’ and the ‘hows’. I got to know why I felt the way I did. I got to actually see myself for the first time! Truly see myself, the full makeup, without filters… and with learning came power. This book helped me understand how to find the positives in life. It made me see how important it is to pay attention to my thinking process. I am very happy to be on my way now and confident that I can achieve what I want and conquer life. ;-)))Thanks a million, ‘Conquering Life Academy’.xxx

    A friend recommended this to me as a useful guide to changing some aspects of my thought patterns. Self help books are often semi-autobiographical, with the author talking about how they changed their life. THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU! It’s not about anyone else, it’s about you and how you interface with your thoughts. I’m halfway through and already I want to advise people to buy this book.Each chapter introduces you to some different thought styles and the reasons we adopt them, and asks you to think about when you use this style. There is a clear process to follow, and it’s all guided to empowering the reader to notice and question how they think. It helps you build your self confidence and internalise your locus of control, helping you to feel energy and confidence.I have found the exercises interesting and I honestly look forward to them. It’s great to know that if I have a difficult thought I can easily sit and guide myself through it, internalising the situation and stripping away all the emotion and negativity. I have learnt an awful lot about myself in the last few weeks, and it’s been exciting because this guide helps me understand why I am processing in a certain way. I definitely feel better about life and more positive as a result of engaging with this book. I’m even starting to compliment myself!!!!!It’s a little more expensive than other self help books, but those £6 books don’t really say much and chip away at your wallet and confidence. This weighs in at an impressive 485 pages and feels like a proper text book.I’m looking forward to the next chapters and to starting my 6 weeks of exercises (all provided in the book) to help me change my thinking.Thank you, ‘Conquering life academy,’ I certainly feel more in control and confident about my day and the future.

    I’ve always been fascinated with psychology but a little intimidated by the complexity of the subject.This book made light work of much of the goings on, in the mind for me. The subtitle; doable psychology for all, is quite apt.The psychological concepts and the mental mechanisms at play are defined in an easy to understand manner, and I like the use of visual representations.I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels a lack of clarity or direction, and also challenge anyone who suffers from absolute certainty, or feeling that they have total clarity of perspective on all things in life, to put it to the test here ;)I certainly had a few ‘aha’ moments…

    A friend of mine highly recommended this book, so I thought I’d give it a try.Very glad I did! Wow! There is sooo much more to me than I ever realised. Where was this book 20 years ago??The real work now begins at my windows…Thank you!

    This book will change your perception of life for the better! I bought this book for myself as a “refresher” course/”life advice bible”, to follow up some sessions I had with the lovely Edward. This book is an invaluable source of accessible psychology to help anyone and everyone. It will help you address your perception of life in a consumable and attainable DIY fashion! If you think you are struggling with any of the aspects shown in the attached photo (among other things like low self esteem, general feelings of inadequacy/sadness and negative thinking patterns) then I could not recommend a better starting point than here. If you want to start looking for the key to living your best life, then give it a read. You won’t be disappointed!! Kx

    Thank you CONQUERING LIFE ACADEMY! The fog is lifting as I read…What an immense sense of relief, to be finally told that I’m not mad! I’m not alone! The pain is real! And to know that I CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT MY LIFE!I highly recommend this book to literally any human being!

    The book is very perceptive about our perceived every day issues in managing life, probably even more relevant these days than ever before. It deals with how we see ourselves and we feel others may see us, and guides the reader through how best to deal with negative thoughts, social anxiety and low self-esteem. It is very reassuring that such issues are so common and it’s not just you! Very helpful and very positive advice and guidance.

    A comprehensive set of guidelines, complete with 24/7 exercises, aimed toward gains in mental health The Art of Conquering Life is a hefty book split into two distinct parts. The first goes over the fundametal principles of one’s mental well-being, with topics ranging from the importance of social interaction to the connection between mental and physical health. In the second part, these principles are applied through a set of morning-lunch-evening exercises printed out for you to complete every day. By constant repetition of filling these in, you should create new healthy neural pathways for yourself, learning to look at the bright side of things, learn from your mistakes, use the power of positive affirmation, be grateful for what you have and more. If this is the sort of book you’re looking for, I suggest you give it a try!
