Mechanisms of the Mind

Mechanisms of the Mind is the ONLY BOOK available that reveals what goes on in your mind when you think, set goals, make decisions, etc. and how subconscious & unconscious thoughts & processes influence you, all of which are explained using common sense logic.
It is a result of research done by author Parag Jasani, who has developed Dichotomized Operating System Model, a model that explains how the mind develops and works in the brain. It is the first ever causal account of the human mind and is based on the process of natural selection proposed by Charles Darwin in the year 1859.
Besides explaining mechanisms underlying diverse mind phenomena like thinking, sensations, perception, awareness, attention, multitasking, instincts, etc., the model solves millennia old mysteries like consciousness, free will, subjective experience, the self, etc. by revealing their underlying mechanisms using a single set of functional components on a single platform.
In particular, the model shows how a simple mechanism - so simple, it can be easily understood by an 8-year-old - offers brain the capability of making 'its own' decisions, when no other mechanism in the world can.
It also shows how your thoughts, actions, personality and behaviour are controlled by something that you cannot hold in your hands, has no physical dimensions, does not weigh anything, has no smell and is not visible.
The book is full of cause-and-effect mechanisms which are explained in a step-by-step manner, thereby simplifying the workings of the human brain - the most complex structure known to the mankind - to the level that can be understood by anyone who is prepared to make the necessary effort. No prior knowledge of any subject is required to understand it.
It is your first chance to comprehensively understand how your mind works - a new way to introspect.

About the author

Parag Jasani is a self-taught, multifaceted innovator with more than four decades of work experience in diverse fields, including the production of machine tools, creation of virtual 3D models & animations and creation & implementation of innovative tools for homogeneous networks. He has many firsts in the field of 3D animation in India. A college dropout, he has been interested in understanding what life is from a very young age.


He is the first to use brain-as-a-system approach (i.e. ‘systems thinking’ approach) to develop Dichotomized Operating System model (DOS model), the first ever causal account of human mind. 


The significance of his work explained in the book can be gauged by the fact that he has used it to single-handedly convert discoveries made by great scientists like Paul Broca, William James, Ian Pavlov, Roger Sperry, Francis Crick, Daniel Kahneman, etc., which were based on ideas, observations and opinions, into robust knowledge backed by fully causal explanations of their underlying mechanisms which work collectively to form the master-mechanism we call mind.

Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results

No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving--every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights.

Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, readers will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field.

Learn how to:
* make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy);
* overcome a lack of motivation and willpower;
* design your environment to make success easier;
* get back on track when you fall off course;
...and much more.

Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success, and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits--whether you are a team looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or achieve any other goal.
