Waterstones Says

The leading psychologist and performance coach delivers a persuasive manifesto for adaptability as key to real-world success in this eye-opening argument for switching between different mental strategies.

What is the key ingredient to a happy, successful life?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to dealing with life. Elaine Fox, one of the world's leading psychologists and performance coaches, has witnessed this time and again. In her work coaching top athletes, military leaders and business professionals, she has seen that it's the people who know how and when to switch between different approaches - people who have an agile mind - who achieve the best performance.

Drawing on 25 years of scientific research, Fox shares with us her step-by-step guide to what she calls 'switchcraft': the set of skills we need to navigate a complex and uncertain world. Whether it's coping with a difficult boss, overcoming a fear, dealing with hyperactive children, resolving a dispute with a friend or making a difficult choice about where to live or what to do, switchcraft helps us thrive in any situation.

Like your own personal life coach, Switchcraft shows you how to break out of a rigid mindset to restore your fulfilment, curiosity and zest for life.
