The Undefeated Mind by Alex Lickerman, MD

Tuesday is the long-anticipated publication day for “a powerful book that helps you cultivate your inner strength to face hard times with a fearless heart. It’s more than a book. It’s a set of tools for life.” By combining his experience as a physician with his practice as a Nichiren Buddhist, author Alex Lickerman, MD offers a groundbreaking and contrarian exploration of why hardiness—not happiness—is the key to a resilient mind and attaining indestructible happiness.

The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self is an amazing and must-read book. Publishers Weekly wrote, “The principles are well constructed and the book well written; the author not only describes an undefeated mind but also teaches the thinking that yields one.” Sources of Insight adds, “The depth of the book really surprised me in that it connected some old dots in new and profound ways.  It’s a beautiful blend of ancient wisdom and modern science.  Through science and stories, Dr. Lickerman teaches us what makes us or breaks us, and what really makes us happy.”

As the editor of this book, I was moved by the profound simplicity of these concepts. This is a book that will subtly change the way you view life going forward, and one you’ll return to again and again.
