Audio Book Summary

This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol.
Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health. But, they resist change because they fear losing the pleasure and stress-relief associated with alcohol, and assume giving it up will involve deprivation and misery.  
This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science, and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us.  Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. With Annie’s own extraordinary and candid personal story at its heart, this book is a must-read for anyone who drinks.

This Naked Mind will give you freedom from alcohol. It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of science and storytelling, This Naked Mind will open the door to the life you have been waiting for.

    I love the passion and conviction of the author/narrator while giving you Science based evidence on the effects of alcohol. This book is much better heard than read because of the narration.

    I liked the book a lot. Alcohol can be insidious in our lives and the marketing machine behind it makes us all not see it for the poison that it is. This book is very helpful in learning how to turn down the noise about alcohol.

    So I listened to this book on recommendation from the MFM podcast. They suggested you could use it to give up anything and I wanted to give up coffee so I gave it a go. This is not appropriate for giving up anything but alcohol. That being said, I have never consumed enough alcohol to relate to this author, and all of this information is obvious and well-known to the public. It did not convince me to dislike alcohol, and I regularly go months without consuming any. I agree with the book whole heartedly about alcohol being something that shouldn’t be socially acceptable, but it should have done a better job of appealing to people who aren’t in dire straits. I would welcome listening to a version of this book that didn’t not make frequent references to excessive alcohol consumption.
