BLACK ICE AND BANANA PEELS: Getting A Grip On Your Mind
by Mark Bender, Ph.D. 170 pgs. ISBN 0-9722995-6-4

Black Ice CoverUnlike most books in the popular psychology field, which tend to be focused on spirituality, story telling or a particular relationship/health problem, Black Ice & Banana Peels directly addresses a foundational aspect of healing—how our mind attempts to control whatever we do. The book addresses, in a clear and entertaining style, critical aspects of healing, prevention, stress reduction, self-help, and body/mind interaction.
