In a world full of Kindle I would preferably be called an old school book reader. 

We have reached an era where one can have multiple books just inside a small gadget.

Many of us the fun of reading a book comes by actually using a bookmark or visiting the book store to exchange an old one while getting another one. 

We can’t certainly deny the fact that book reading is indeed a great habit to improve ourselves.

Two Best Underrated books for Self- development 

With the commencement of the New Year comes new resolutions in which if any of you wish to start reading a book.

Then you can certainly consider the book , Switch as an option.

A book on creating effective and lasting change, by brothers Chip and Dan Heath.

Along with offering the reader a clear-cut framework to begin creating change within their own business immediately it also has a clear message and an organized layout. 

Change is hard be it within an individual or an organisation and it is certainly undeniable, to overcome through these changes positively and deal with different issues calmly this book is just perfect.

Where the Heath brothers really shine is in illustrating through stories and real-world examples how to systematically go about creating change. 

There are three basic tasks for successful change directed by Heath brothers:

  • Directing the rider
  • Motivating the elephant
  • Shaping the path i.e. the environment. 

Rather than describing these three tasks we would rather recommend reading it in the book itself.

If we have to give an overall expression, an outstanding job of transforming a hefty amount of behavioral psychology into succinct and actionable steps.

Brothers said , Coaches can put into practice with their own clients immediately.

To their credit, there’s never a moment in this book where you lose sight of the overall message.

In the end, giving a short review won’t be justice  to this book.

Irrespective of any circumstances if you want to improve the success you have with clients or even create meaningful change in your own life, you’d do well to check out this book. 

Excellent writing is evident in some parts of this book.

As a result of this book, we reframe the past, rebuild self-esteem, and recover from the inevitable hurts we experience throughout our lives.

He also discusses how to become fully engaged in the world, knowing when to take a break. 

All in all it helps us manage our work, and social and intimate relationships, in an affirming way.

Different characteristics of an HSP that includes temperament, attachment, exposure to cultural influences, social relationships, are therapies important and getting over our past experiences are some of the highlights here.

At the end of the day, if you, or anyone else you know is a Highly Sensitive Person, then reading this book will help you realize what tools you need to thrive, which will help you become the best version of yourself.
