Soar Above: The Tools That Help Make A Positive
Transformation Possible In Any Area Of Life
In Soar Above, Dr. Stosny explains why diets don’t work, addicts relapse, marriages falter, and Mr. Hyde can’t remember what Dr. Jekyll learned in anger management
In Dr. Steven Stosny’s book, Soar Above: How To Use The Most Profound Part Of Your Brain Under Any Kind Of Stress (HCI Books), the reader is given tools showing how to take flight from the toddler brain to landing in the adult brain when things get tough. Dr. Stosny illustrates that our brains are like “habit-forming machines,” and the goal of his new book is to use habits to overcome the limitations of them.
In the chapter titled, Anger in the Age of Entitlement, Dr. Stosny illuminates that “We give more importance to personal feelings than personal values and to expressing how we feel rather than doing what we deeply believe is right.” Throughout his book, Dr. Stosny supports with science how to replace old habits with new ones to transform us into the kind of persons, parents, and partners that we most want to be.
