I would, but my DAMN MIND won't let me by Jacqui Letran, is a book written to help young people unlock the tools to overcome many of the mental hurdles which frequently present challenges for teens. Letran helps readers understand how the mind can often send confusing (and sometimes detrimental) signals as a means of protecting one's-self from pain. The author breaks down the root causes of many mental obstacles which can often seem insurmountable while providing solutions for long-term stability and happiness. Topics such as fear and self-doubt are addressed in a way which is profound in its simplicity.
Jacqui Letran's self-help guide for young adults is an engrossing and highly accessible guide for anyone who'd like to understand why they react to stress and stressors the way they do. I was impressed by the way the author introduces the complex and complicated processes that go on in the human mind and especially appreciated how she's adapted her findings and techniques to work with young women. Her case studies were fascinating and clearly demonstrated how depression and other mental health issues can sometimes be resolved without the use of medicines and traditional therapeutic methods. This is a well-written and informative work that is neither condescending nor patronizing of its target audience, and it is highly recommended.

I would, but my DAMN MIND won't let me! by Jacqui Letran, is a brilliant piece of work, a simple, provocative and insightful education on the mind, how it works and how it affects our lives. Don't let the title fool you, this is a serious and well-developed presentation, providing an understanding of the principles of the mind, and how our subconscious mind records our own beliefs, usually formed at a young age, and how these beliefs about ourselves and the world, can come back to haunt us in ways we could never have known. Not only an excellent read, but a necessary one for anyone who feels they could do with a better grip on their lives, or for that matter, a better understanding of what might be affecting people of family or kids in one's immediate circle. Give this book to your teenager to read - it will help them.
