Publisher's Summary

Success in work, love, and life depends on developing habits that activate the powerful prefrontal cortex when we need it most. Unfortunately, under stress, the human brain tends to revert to emotional habits we forged in toddlerhood: blame, denial, avoidance, reacting to a jerk like a jerk, and turning our connections into cold shoulders - or worse.
In Soar Above, renowned relationship expert Dr. Steven Stosny offers a groundbreaking formula for building new, pressure-resistant habits. Based on research in psychology, neurobiology, and anthropology, Stosny will show anyone how to switch to the adult brain automatically when things get tough and to soar above the impulse to make things worse.
Filled with engaging examples from his lectures and therapeutic work with more than 6,000 clients, he explains how to use two potent laws of emotion interaction - reciprocity and contagion - to inspire those around you, creating collaboration and community instead of chaos and confusion. Most importantly, listeners will learn how, through practice, they can get off the treadmill of repeating past mistakes to become their best selves at home, at work, and in the world.
Stress is inevitable in life, but this illuminating book gives anyone the practical tools to rise above.

Slow down!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator obviously had somewhere to be, as he rattled through the text like he had an urgent appointment looming. Why can't the web site have the same option as the iPad app and allow the user to run the audio at different speeds? I can't review the rest of the book at this stage, as I have other books in my library much easier to listen to.
