“The book, Coolmind by David Keefe, provides an excellent description of the physical and mental changes that take place for a young person during times of stress and worry. Keefe provides explanations and solutions in easy to read and relatable examples, to encourage the young reader to utilise his powerful suggestions, whilst still feeling in control of their choices. This is a must read for any student and I would highly recommend it be introduced into every high school, for a profound positive impact to many young people’s lives.”
