Unplug Your Robot by Karin Kiser is an insightful and empowering self-help book guiding people on becoming aware of the present, conscious of their actions, and truly living in the present. Kiser refers to the subconscious mind as the robot and how most people live subconsciously instead of consciously. The book starts with a quiz that allows you to evaluate the level at which you operate, and through answering these questions, you become aware of the level at which the robot or subconscious operates you. Coupled with personal anecdotes, breathing exercises, and self-affirmation practices, Kiser provides a new perspective and actions to make individuals active participants and drivers.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Unplug Your Robot, a candid, concisely written, and compelling self-help book. Karin Kiser backs up her ideas and opinions through a well-thought-out analysis of everyday situations people experience. The book is well-written, quick, and easy to read, which makes it memorable and possible for you to remember and implement many of the practices suggested. I found the content relatable and that change is possible and within my reach. Kiser organizes the book well, starting with the reader personally evaluating the level at which the robot operates in their life, thus drawing one's interest and maintaining it throughout. Her ideas are bold, and some may think controversial, but undoubtedly honest, all of which are desired characteristics of self-help books. Unplug Your Robot is a great read that can help you live in the present and is highly recommended.
