    1. A Buddhist saying goes like this: our happiness and our sorrow are both the product of our thoughts and nothing else. And this is exactly what this book concentrates upon, but with a more pragmatical approach. The question is not about happiness, but rather about the clutter of thoughts that we constantly have, which does not benefit to our mental health (eventually to our emotional state also).Mental traps are typical to the Western mind and Andre Kukla does a great job at demolishing absurd ta [...]

    2. Интересный взгляд на мысли людей. Стоит того что бы прочитать, но наискосок. Автор мучает читателя бессмысленным повторением одних и тех же мыслей по 5 раз с одними и теми же примерами.

    3. I'm afraid I found Andre Kukla perseverating on his own compartments of mental traps and eventually found it a mental trap reading it

    4. Highly recommended for over thinkers, like myself. Identify these mental traps: persistence, amplification, fixation, reversion, anticipation, resistance, procrastination, division, acceleration, regulation and formulation. Solution given to avoid these mental traps. Overall, interesting psychological, self-improvement book.

    5. I actually didn't finish this book, admittedly. It seemed interesting and I got a few chapters in, but then it started to seem confusing and repetitive. I could no longer remember which trap was which as they all sounded similar to each other. I gave up. Great idea and probably some great info in there, but pretty hard to stay in.

    6. I liked it because I'm an overthinker and it gave me a lot more to overthink about.

    7. Бесполезная книга о ментальных ловушках. Автор неплохо их обозначает, но аппелирует к рациональности, нe отмечая ни физиологических, ни психологических причин этих ловушек

    8. Quick and easy read. Acknowledging the problem is 50% of solving the problem. Buddhist serenity aftertaste.

    9. So the first 2/3 - 3/4 of this book was fairly facile and 101 level cognitive distortion stuff, and if you've spent any amount of time in the self-help world or trying to talk yourself out of anxiety there won't be anything new here. It doesn't bill itself as anti-anxiety or self-help, and largely avoids the language of mental health altogether (except for a passing nod at depression occasionally), and seems rather to be aimed at someone who may not have as much experience thinking of themselves [...]

    10. Какая хрень! Поддавшись стадному инстинкту захотелось прочитать "умную" книгу. Нет, тут есть конечно кое-что здравое:"Мнения, которые люди составляют о себе самих, имеют свойство самореализующихся пророчеств, а исполнение этих пророчеств, в свою очередь, еще больше укрепля [...]

    11. I'm giving this a 4 because it's very clever and insightful but almost in an annoying way. :P By the end of it you feel like you're wandering around overthinking overthinking. It does contain some useful advice but I don't think I could ever follow all of it. Even if you just pick and choose a couple of applicable points that probably would make a noticible improvement to your life though, so if you are an overthinker it is worth reading.Having said that, the advice is quite difficult to follow.

    13. It was ok. I think the last third of the book was the most interesting/useful. It really should have been called 'the evolutionary path of a mental trap' because that's really what it is looking at the contents at a high level. Everyone suffers from a configuration of the mental trap described in the book- and while it does a good job describing it, it does a poor job addressing the reality that modern life promotes all of these bad habits - im sure the author could label that reasoning with a m [...]

    14. At times, it can be hard to read through this book, however, if you put in a bit of effort you will find it very useful. This book will make you think about what you think and why you think what you think :)It helped me to understand some of my mental flaws/traps, which I believe made me a bit wiser and calmer.I believe the book is a bit underrated.

    15. "Make you think more consciously"We use our brain to think all the time without realizing the many needless and effort-wasting mental traps: Persistence, amplification, fixation, reversion, anticipation, resistance, procrastination, division, acceleration, regulation and formulation. Reading this book might not make you think smarter, but definitely more consciously, attentively and alive.

    16. Descriptive and well-written about the various traps and how to spot them. However, I feel that the advices on how to overcome these mental traps aren't too practical or useful. To summarise the author's advice in a sentence : "do the right things at the right time and at the right pace" How exactly? If correcting for one trap sets the path towards another trap?

    17. Начали за здравие, кончили за упокой, запутавшись, какая ловушка какая. Автор фактически призывает ничего не осознавать, но в то же время осознавать все свои мыслительные процессы. Взаимоисключающие параграфы, давление на читателя плюс откуда ни возьмись в конце что-то так [...]

    18. The content of this book is drawn from many sources, including philosophy, psychology, religion, science, and most importantly, the self. This book will knock you on the head to wake you up from ignorance. Ignorance of your own thoughts, which makes you less productive and redundant. It has a potential to change lives radically. a MUST read.

    19. Difficult read, you might say trying to stick with this and finish it was a mental trap. No real solution for over thinkers presented other than counting your breaths and trying to clear your thoughts.

    20. I don't think I'm an overthinker, really.And I would have organized the book into chapters that presented the problem, then the proposed solution, rather than describing all the problems and having one "solution" chapter at the end.

    21. The problem with this book is that it ends up being its own mental trap. The writer really belaboured the point too much towards the end and ruined it.

    22. Такая себе книженция. Не фонтан, но брызги есть. Очень много очевидной, ненужной и лишней информации. Были моменты, когда было действительно интересно, но в основном ниже среднего.

    23. One of the best psychologigal idea I had ever read in my life. Strongly recommended.

    24. Too repetitive the book was a mental trap in itself

      Reply

    25. Interesting observations about the games we play in our minds. I enjoyed the insight, but it was too much description and not enough answers as to how to cope.

    26. Erudite and deeply pragmatic, but ultimately a polemic on thought waste and like all polemics--ie. the bible--only usable in small bites, or fragments. well worth the read regardless.

    27. Quite an enjoyable book. Some parts I felt I might have to re-read, but readable nonetheless.

    28. This was short. I should probably be reading my adolescent psych assignment but I do not want to.

    29. it's not an action plan. the book makes you think of mental processes and their impact on your life and emotions.

    30. Слишком занудно и очевидно. Как классификация "тараканов" наверное потянет, но особой полезности не увидел в этой книге.
