Unleash the Power of Your Mind is an interesting and a promising self-improvement book written by Aaron Powell.
The book has eight chapters and offers a powerful reasoning method the author calls Premise Based Implicative Truth Synthesis. The book is a product of the author’s years of experience in multidisciplinary projects in software development of biotechnology and outlines a new angle towards connecting different disciplines, using a combination of creativity, logic, and philosophy. The author’s objective in writing the book is to give the readers a new and unique perspective so they, too, can make significant progress in their careers and lives.
The author explains Premise Based Implicative Truth Synthesis by presenting the connection between mathematics and physics, and explicates further by illustrating how to win a car race using the method. He also presents other examples of the method in Applied Mathematics, Human Behavior, Physics, Engineering, Electronics and Digital Circuit, Music, Software Development, and Computer Programming. Moreover, the book emphasizes the importance of meditation in Premise Based Implicative Truth Synthesis.
Basically, this is a very interesting and very promising book. The language used is consistently formal and with a text book tone. The author is apparently passionate not only about writing the book but also about the subject matter, per se. His enthusiasm is quite laudable and that’s what I like most about the book.
However, I find the explanations too ambiguous. First, the author uses words that I find too technical like axiomatic systems, axiomatic boundaries, postulating power, and partial differential equation and uses phrases like decoupling systems along axiomatic boundaries. This is what I like least about the book. Second, the book talks about the connection between system A and system B but does not explain how to determine which is system A and which is system B. Lastly, the book is heavy on theories, definition of terms (like success, creativity, and music piece), and hypothetical examples but short on illustration of actual events. Personally, I just want an instruction on how I can actually use the method in a particular aspect of my life to help me succeed.
Moreover, the author has a tendency to deviate from the subject matter, that I found the explanations difficult to follow. It seems like he wants to put everything he knows in this one short book. Furthermore, with the absence of a bibliography, list of references or further reading, I found the explanations too subjective for my taste. Finally, there are several noticeable errors within the entire book including misspelled words (loosing job instead of losing job and understand matter and than instead of understand matter and then), typo errors (like You goal instead of your goal and focuses n success instead of focuses on success), and grammatical errors (can motivates us to do a certain thing and We will chose to take action).
I, therefore, rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. It is interesting, promising, and passionately written. I recommend it to readers who enjoy self-improvement books.
