What People Are Saying

“Educational and Thought-worthy. The Machine Inside Me is a great book for both children and adults. It helps simplify situations and helps you to think of new solutions. This book has the power of reframing thoughts and rewiring the mind. It is a great read and helps in all aspects.”
– Tom Krieglstein

“A practical and powerful way to teach our youth about their brains. This is an incredible book on so many levels. The first of which is that the author presents situations we can all identify with and how we “negatively wire” our brains with our thoughts when we engage in negative self-talk or self-think. The second level is introducing and explaining how our brains work and how each of the “components” of our thinking machine function and how we can modify how they work by developing good habits. The third level is the amount of encouragement that is authentic and is presented in a way that speaks to ‘you’re not alone’ but does not come across as preachy or as simple platitudes. A book that would be great to buy for your pre-teen as their brains and identities develop and their insecurities begin to affect how our youth perceive themselves and the world around them.”
