Connecting with yourself by Vishal Jacob – Book Review

Connecting with yourself - Book Cover

Book Name: Connecting with yourself

Author: Vishal Jacob

Publisher: Notion Press


Every life is an interesting story, and this story is best written when people go through life's experiences by staying connected to who they truly are. To stay connected to yourself, you need first to start listening from within.

This book gives a perspective on why we think, feel and act the way we do, through concepts from neuroscience and psychology. It attempts to answer some of life's key questions, such as-

-Why do we all perceive things differently?
-Why are we designed to do different things?
-Why do we all learn things in different ways?
-How are habits formed?
-What role do emotions play in our lives?
-What makes us happy?
And finally, what it means and takes to stay connected to ourselves and others.


I like reading self-help books. They give you an insight into how you can make your life better. When I received this book, I was going through a rough patch of my life. I was loaded with work at office and my freelance projects also killed most of my time. This book proved to be a savior. Just like its name, I was able to connect with myself.

The author has divided the books into 10 chapters. Each chapter brings you closer and makes you aware of various aspects of life… one at a time. He narrates to you an incident, a story and then presents his views about the same. We, human beings, have a tendency to learn things better when we hear them in the form of a story. And the author succeeds in doing it really well.

The narration is simple and so is the language. You will be able to relate to it really well. The author summarizes each chapter in a page… it’s the key takeaways from the chapter.

Another amazing thing about this book is that you can read any chapter that you like. You do not compulsorily have to follow the order of the book.

I would rate this book with 4/5 stars.

You can book your copies on Amazon.
