About this book

John Taylor explores how the mind works and shows you how to maintain and repair your mind like a professional. What is the mind? How can we use it to our best advantage and what happens when things go wrong?

Many writers treat the workings of the mind as something mysterious, almost spiritual. John Taylor instead considers it to be a complex but scientifically understandable machine. In "Mind the User's Manual" he outlines the workings of the mind, the nature of consciousness, what can go wrong and how we manipulate our minds. In so doing he seeks to enable the layman better to understand the workings of his mind and how he can look after it. With practical advice for mind-management this book gives a fundamental understanding of the mind's working processes and helps troubleshoot problems if things go wrong.

"Mind: A User's Manual" is written for those who are curious about their own minds, especially those interested in their own consciousness. We all use our minds differently and this book lays a foundation for a truly individual yet comprehensive view based on the detailed understanding that science can now bring to our own individual experiences. It will also help people to get more out of their lives by increasing the richness of their own experiences. Preventing this richness from descending into chaos is a difficult matter, but if the mind is understood it can more easily be kept in order, and John Taylor shows how.
