Conflict front cover thumb (1)Break Your Addiction to Conflict:
12 Tools to Quiet the Mind
By: Nathan J. Snow

Are you conflict-ridden? Do you feel overwhelmed by all the cares and worries of your day? Do people drive you crazy and you don’t know why or if you play a part in this conflict? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Break Your Addiction to Conflict is a book for you!

Conflict is ubiquitous and we all seem to be addicted to it. It seems to be a cultural rite of passage for us given the twenty-first century. But is it healthy to experience this much conflict at all times? Even the way we govern ourselves in traffic and with colleagues at work point to our unhealthy need to be conflicted. Is there any way to get around this terrible mind-set? Thankfully, Nathan Snow shows us how to overcome our constant need for conflict so that we could gain more peace of mind and get out of the rut of being in a constant state of mental struggle.

Some conflict is necessary in our lives. However, too much conflict can make us feel imbalanced and out of control. Not only that, but once we develop a frenetic mind, it is very difficult to detach from this mind-set. The good news is that we can quiet our minds by learning to curb our gravitation to conflict. There is a practical order and serenity to every situation and person. And we can achieve this inner peace through the 12 Tools laid out in this book. By mastering these Tools, the reader will be able to move into a light of acceptance and calm.

The 12 Tools outlined in Break Your Addiction to Conflict are easy to understand although they may be hard to implement since we are creatures of habit. Our old behaviors become ingrained that it is difficult for us to move into a new mold. But we must do so in order to be healthy and more peaceful. The book is laid out in such a way that the reader will be able to master each Tool before proceeding to the next one. Also, there is a summary of the 12 Tools at the end of the book for future reference. Thank you Nathan for such a wonderfully informative and eye-opening book!
